The Fiat Ducato 4X4 Expedition Camper Show Van has made its UK debut at the 2015 Motorhome and Caravan Show in Birmingham. This van is a collaborative project with interior outfitters Tecnoform, 4×4 specialist Dangel and Olmedo body customization.
The Show Camper Van is built on the Fiat Ducato camper base. The exterior features a two-tone paint job comprising of light and dark shades of Grey. The customised camper has a widened track and raised height. Other elements that add style and functionality are front skid plate, LED daytime running lights, front winch and roof rack (which can also be used as a platform to sit or walk on, two and half meters above ground).
Tecnoform has outfitted the interior and in the process is celebrating its 50th anniversary with its involement in the customised camper. The interior gets clean lines, streamlined furniture and high-tech materials that have been selected to create a lounge-like atmosphere. It is designed to provide a relaxing space after a hectic day of holidaying. The furniture has an integrated lighting system while an entertainment system with multiple speakers and two retractable flat-screen TVs complete the amenities.
A 150 hp 2.3-litre MultiJet II engine powers the Ducato 4×4 Expedition. Fiat says that the customized camper is eager and agile on the road, yet rugged and capable when the going gets tough.
Four-wheel drive expert Dangel has engineered a permanent all-wheel drive system with viscous coupling for the FIAT Ducato Camper Show Van. Apart from this, they have raised the ride height and added oversized tyres and special wheels to give a good off-road capability.
With this project Fiat Professional has begun to explore the camper van segment which accounts for 25% of Europe’s motorhome market. This one-off camper is not expected to enter production.
