The Manhattan Campervan
The Manhattan is really well specified and is the ultimate family experience, with plenty of comfortable seating, a spacious living area to enjoy and dine in and sleeping for up to 4 people.
The Manhattan is built by Sussex Campervans and is based on the superb Renault Trafic and Vauxhall Vivaro vehicles. What impresses me with this vehicle is that it is a real pleasure to drive – in fact, the drive quality surpasses most people’s cars. It makes a wonderful campervan.
The Manhattan is a classic side kitchen layout with all the mod cons you would expect, along with Sussex Campervans very own Rock ‘n’ Roll beds which have been designed to turn your living and dining space to night mode in literally a few seconds.
The elevating roof gives you the flexibility of having a double bed in this space. There is flexibility in the seating arrangements too – if you choose the three seat option in the front, you can have five passengers on belted seats.
The Campervan interior is superb, built to a very high standard by experienced and careful technicians. All parts are cut on a CNC machine, for perfect accuracy every time. And having everything built in-house means we can tailor make your campervan to be as personalised to you as your own fingerprint.
With a side fitted kitchen and two belted rear seats, this is the perfect home from home campervan for a family who wants to holiday in style.
The wardrobe provides you with easy access, either with a roll shutter or double doors, so that whether you’re on the move, or lying in bed you can easily access whatever you need.
The large work surface with double hinged covers over the sink and cooker makes the usual chores such as the cooking and washing up a doddle to do.
All in all there is a real feeling of space in this campervan, and it makes for a great holiday base for you and your family.
