Wellhouse Leisure are a mulit-award winning vehicle conversion company within the UK - they specialise in converting vehicles into brilliant campers. Since the very start back in 2002, Wellhouse Leisure provide quality and value within their conversions. Their latest project involves transforming the award-winning Toyota PROACE into a comfortable and well-equipped campervan. This new model will be known as the Lerina and will be going into production very soon and is only available to a handful of Toyota retailers - Burrows Toyota being one of them! Contact our Business Centre team for more details.
The Lerina is an adaptation of the medium-wheelbase PROACE Comfort model measuring 4.95m long and 1.98m high. From the outside it looks like the usual Toyota PROACE - apart from the added on pop-up roof. Whereas on the inside there are a whole lot of special camping additions. There is a side kitchen layout (with a sink, a gas hob, a 25-litre fridge and a water tank) and a rear bench that can be folded down to make a comfortable double bed. The passenger and driver seat can be swivelled round to face the rear creating a lounge area when the vehicle is parked. The interior features a modern look with white fitted furniture and plenty of storage space, including a large wardrobe and a portable toilet. Options include: two extra removable seats (allowing the Lerina to be used as a six-seater), a side awning with LED lighting and a double bed in the pop-up roof.
Sound good so far? The power is provided via an electric hook-up point plus a 100W solar panel and a leisure battery. There is also a powerful 2.2kW heater with a timer perfect for all-year round camping. There is a choice of two 2.0-litre turbodiesel engines available: a 120bhp unit with a six-speed manual gearbox and a 180bhp version with an automatic transmission. The following features are available on the Lerina model:
- 17-inch alloy wheels
- Satellite navigation
- Cruise control
- Air conditioning
- DAB radio
- Power front windows and door mirrors
- Colour TFT multi-information display
A Toyota GB spokesman said: "Wellhouse Leisure was our choice for an official conversion specialist to turn our award-winning PROACE - the What Van? Medium Van of the Year - into a comfortable and highly practical campervan. Its design maximises the potential of the interior space and gives PROACE and our growing range of light commercial vehicles yet another dimension of usefulness and customer appeal." The Lerina will be assembled by Lunar Campers, including left-hand drive versions for export to Toyota retailers in Europe. The model is available to UK customers from £42,000 on the road.
