Derby-based, compact motorhome specialist, Hillside Leisure has announced that itwill be introducing a new Nissan campervan at the Caravan & Camping Show at the NEC Birmingham.

The new model has been built on the Nissan NV200 basis, which has previously also been used as a base for the Lunar Vacanza and Sussex Campervans, not to mention the new London taxicab.
Promoted as being convenient and extremely affordable, the Hillside Leisure version will come in two versions, available at a bargain price of under £25,000.

In addition to its price, running along the same lines of their previous models like the Birchover (on a VW base) or Ellastone (based on a Renault Trafic), this new Nissan motorhome will also include features like a side kitchen, rear bench floor-plans along with a crash-tested seat and bed system, developed by RIB.

Differing a little from each other, the standard new model will be a four-seater with a 1.04m-wide seat/bed. On the other hand, the kitchen will contain a two-burner hob, sink and a fridge. There will even be a rising roof, which will result in extra headroom on site.

In contrast to this, the second model will be a five-seater, featuring a more spacious bed area. However, this means that there will be a decrease in the galley space. The other difference is that in the kitchen, a portable cool-box will replace the fitted fridge.

Along with their various features, both the models will probably have a swivel passenger cab-seat as seen in other van versions of the NV200.

Although limited details of the models are available at the moment, more detail should be released during the weeks leading up to the 2014 NEC show, which runs from 18-23 February.
