Lookers Nissan is helping holiday makers get the most out of the British spring and summer with the introduction of a new service that transforms one of its key van models into a fully functional motor home.

Lookers Nissan on Kirkstall Road, Leeds, is offering the service to customers who purchase the NV300, which they will convert to a four-berth camper van, complete with a long list of modification options to help create a unique holiday experience.

It’s the first Lookers Nissan dealership to offer the service directly and will allow customers to seamlessly purchase the campervan of their dreams thanks to a wealth of options and spec.

Among the many options available are appliances such as an oven, compressor fridge, an integrated microwave and a fold away dining table.

Sleeping quarters are made up of beds for two passengers in the main van and space for two in the pop out roof.

The Leeds dealership hopes to tap into the increased number of people spending their holidays at home here in the UK, as well as those looking for an affordable way to own a campervan.

Figures from the latest Travelodge holiday report shows that over half of Britons (57%) took their annual summer holiday in the UK last year, while the amount spent per break was £823, up from £599 in 2017.

With last summer’s heat wave still fresh in the minds of holiday makers, Josh Tyerman, Local Business Development Manager, Fleet, believes that a modified NV300 could be the perfect way to experience everything that the British Isles have to offer.

Josh said: “We’re very excited to be offering this bespoke service that allows our customers to transform the Nissan NV300 into their dream campervan. It’s a brand-new service for Lookers Nissan and we hope that, with the recent warm weather getting everyone talking about the upcoming spring and summer, that our customers will be looking to make their stay in the UK this year that extra bit special.
