Vikenze III - 2 Berth, 4 Belted Travel Seats, Petrol, Compact Camper Car
Vikenze III Camper & Car makes a 'CamperCar'
The Vikenze III is the latest model in our compact camper-van range based on the Vauxhall Combo MPV. It boasts a broadly similar interior design and layout to that of our smaller Vikenze II based on the Fiat Qubo offering more travelling seats, two beds and generally a lot more space and comfort all around.
Whilst the Vikenze III is the largest model in our compact campercar range it has been carefully and thoughtfully selected and designed to double up as your everyday car too. It’s not just a campervan! The length and width of the vehicle is not that dissimilar to that of a Ford Focus, but perhaps the most important dimension is that of the height. Thanks to our custom built, slimline, electrically operated elevating roof we are able to keep the overall height down to just 1.84 metres (6’1’’). This means that you’ll easily pass under the 2 metre height barriers and also, will fit in most garages too.
Clean, Green and Versatile
The Vikenze III boasts the newest up to date cleaner and greener 1.2 litre turbocharged (Euro 6D) petrol engine (Diesel options also available). This means that you can expect around 40-48 miles per gallon and so will help future proof from increasing emissions restrictions in our towns and cities. The Vikenze III comes with either an 8 speed automatic or a 6 speed manual gearbox. All this combined makes for a very modern, quiet, comfortable and refined car / camper that's equally at home sailing down a French autoroute (where it's charged at class 1, same as a car, not a campervan), or helping out on the local school run.
A versatile interior layout giving you a choice of how many travelling seats you want: Two people can camp with 2, 3 or 4 travelling seats. If your priority is more storage you might choose to swap either one or both rear Vauxhall seats for additional storage modules and one “Wheelhome” seat. We refer to these options as Layout 2TS, Layout 3TS, Layout 4TS - TS being the number of travelling seats. The seats simply clip in and out.
A One or Two Berth camper
Vikenze III has two generously sized beds: One low-level single bed and a second bed that lowers from the roof space. Access to the roof bed is easy via two large, sturdy steps revealed by rotating the induction hob part of the kitchen unit. We have been employing this unique design for over a decade now and it really works well. This also provides night-time Porta Potti access.
10 litres (2.2 gallon) of removable fresh water storage, conveniently accessed through the off-side sliding door. The water is electrically pumped to the stainless steel sink and drainer. The Porta Potti is easily removed for servicing through the off-side sliding door.
We normally carry out brand new conversions on almost brand new (up to a year old) Vauxhall sourced vehicles, with automatic being an option. The Vikenze III costs £35,000 when built on a less than 1 year old vehicle with no more than 10,000 miles. Typically though, these will have lower mileage at around 2,000 - 5,000 miles. If you want a brand new vehicle we can still supply this, but cost will increase.

Electric induction hob & microwave - No gas!
Vikenze III has our latest all electric cooking system with modern, efficient cooking mediums such as an Induction hob and microwave plus 230v sockets, ideally placed for using a kettle, 9 litre oven or toaster. 230v is supplied via an onboard inverter which generates 230v from the auxiliary batteries. Vikenze III has our largest battery bank ever, giving 2-3 days cooking off-grid even in poor weather, and a huge, bespoke, 300w solar panel. In bright weather, the Vikenze III is totally energy self-sufficient! (How “green” is that!) You can of course, also take advantage of campsite hook up which charges the batteries and can also power the equipment.
Other conversion features
Our elevating roof is specially created for Vikenze III, it raises and lowers electrically, has large vents and carries a super-slim (just 3mm) 300watt solar panel that covers the entire roof. If you have a smart phone you can even check how much free energy the solar panel is "harvesting" into the batteries via a bluetooth app. This can be double the charge normally achieved from a typical campervan's system. The roof can be lowered whilst wet and aired later.
Vikenze III has a thermostatically controlled 14 litre Waeco electric fridge, with a taller, 21 litre being optional. The sink/drainer cover doubles up as the table on a island leg and the induction hob cover becomes a useful worktop behind driver's seat.
