The American automaker presented the new version of its popular van at the Motorhome and Caravan exhibition in Birmingham. The novelty is called Transit Custom Nugget 2020.

Such a camper has several features at once, each of which should be given attention. First of all, we note the built-in modem, which guarantees high-speed Wi-Fi for ten devices at once. It will be possible to catch the Network even at a distance of 15 meters from the car. Also, the latest version of the Ford Transit Custom Nugget camper has been equipped with everything necessary for a comfortable stay. This is perhaps his main feature. This is not just a modified van, but a real mobile home, where they placed a kitchenette with a dining area, a living room and even a small bedroom.

The list of available equipment includes an autonomous heating system, a two-burner gas stove, a sink, a very spacious refrigerator, an external shower, and also side tanks for fresh and waste water. For conditional “zoning” of such a mobile apartment is responsible for an adjustable sloping roof.

The camper sets in motion a two-liter 185-horsepower EcoBlue diesel engine, working in tandem with the manual or automatic transmission. An alternative is a 130-horsepower engine.

Electronic “helpers” are responsible for the comfort and safety during the trip, among them are blind-zone monitoring systems with a trailer and lane keeping, a parking assistant, and adaptive cruise control. Already in the “base”, the modified Transit receives the SYNC 3 infotainment system, deep tinted windows and hinged windows of the “living area”. For an extra charge, the van will be equipped with a premium audio system, bike racks and other sports equipment.

 In Britain, the novelty was estimated at 56,273 pounds. Over time, the camper will be presented at other car markets in Europe, but here it is unlikely to appear.
