CamperKing launches innovative vehicle – the Pursuit

CamperKing, the UK’s largest converter of Volkswagen Transporter-based campervans, has announced the arrival of a new day-van model designed for adventure lovers – the Pursuit.

Pursuit is a vehicle benefiting from elements of the Volkswagen Kombi passenger vehicle, a panel van and a full campervan conversion, and benefits from technology from equipment partners including Webasto and Front Runner.

Pursuit has been almost a decade in development and is designed to be a new class of vehicle that is ideal for both work and leisure purposes. The Pursuit’s leisure-specific qualities are a result of CamperKing working with development partners including endurance sport apparel and wetsuit brand, HUUB, and bicycle manufacturer, Raleigh.

CamperKing’s managing director, Spencer Grey, said: “We’re launching Pursuit today to fill a gap in the market, by catering to the adventurous and free-spirited who need a flexible vehicle that will accompany them through all their daily needs, providing a large load space, numerous passenger-carrying options, off-grid capability and much more.

“We’ve designed Pursuit to help its users be independent, to give them freedom from hook-ups and the restrictions of everyday camping, to give them the choice of using it for work one day and a weekend adventure the next.

“We think its versatility combined with our rigorous attention to detail will give Pursuit a wide appeal, and we look forward to seeing would-be owners at our showroom and dealerships around the country to tell them more about it.”

Based on the Transporter T6.1 base vehicle, Pursuit is offered in both a two-berth (Pursuit 2) and four-berth layout (Pursuit 4), each available on a short- or long wheelbase. Pursuit is equipped with a bespoke rail-floor system, featuring four floor-bonded rails compatible with a range of accessories and equipment. A full-width folding rear three-seater bed, manufactured by Mobiframe, is included with the conversion, as is a 60-litre underslung fresh-water tank, high-pressure shower attachment and three 20Ah lithium leisure batteries. The setup includes CamperKing’s UK-made power management system, curtains throughout, and a choice of upholstery finishes.

By pulling the three-seater bed forward on the rails, a huge storage area is created at the back of the vehicle. This area can be used to carry bikes, paddleboards, camping gear, fishing tackle, toolboxes, building supplies – the list is almost endless.

Pursuit 2 is designed without a pop-top roof. Instead the vehicle can be fitted with an optional roof rack system featuring a range of equipment from leading overland camping kit manufacturer, Front Runner, which is part of the Dometic Group. The items include jerry cans, water containers, storage boxes, and carriers for adventure kit such as paddleboards and bikes. The Front Runner items are also available for sale separately at shop.camperking.co.uk.

Meanwhile, Pursuit 4 has a CamperKing pop-top roof, featuring a comfortable mattress providing two additional berths, for those who plan to camp with family. The roof can be fitted with optional 60W solar panels that provide exceptional power provision when out and about, as well as a half-roof rack also supplied by Front Runner.

Both models can be further customised, with options such as rear-mounted bike racks, tow bars, sidebars and hydro-dipped exterior features including wing mirrors and door handles.

Inside, Pursuit does not have the furniture kit and cooking facilities you would expect in a typical CamperKing campervan. Instead the leisure system is hidden behind an interior panel, meaning internal space is maximised, and accessories compatible with the rail system, such as jump seats and modular cooking or washing pods, can be moved in and out of the vehicle as required.

Pursuit is designed to fit around a busy lifestyle, providing a spacious passenger vehicle for weekdays or a utility vehicle for work purposes, while transforming into the ultimate leisure vehicle at weekends.

Pursuit 2 and 4 are now available to order and can be seen online at www.camperking.co.uk/pursuit-day-van/ and at CamperKing’s HQ near Banbury. Please contact our sales team for further information via our website, or by email at [email protected], or by calling 01295 500025.

Pricing will start from around £48,000 for both models.
