Wellhouse Leisure is delighted to announce that the leading UK Ford retailer, Evans Halshaw, is launching its Ford Terrier campervan at two of its retailers this month.
Evans Halshaw Ford Coatbridge in north Lanarkshire, Scotland and Evans Halshaw Bretton in Cheshire are the latest to join the nationwide network of Ford retailers offering their customers the lifestyle of an award-winning campervan developed in collaboration with Ford UK.
The Wellhouse Ford Terrier was the first campervan conversion of the new Ford Transit Custom to be launched in the UK. Its combination of great design and value for money plus the economy and driveability of the Ford Transit Custom base vehicle, has made it one of the UK’s best-selling campervans, with many awards to its name since its launch in 2013.
Two features that make the Terrier so desirable are the quality and flexibility of its interior. A one-piece storage and kitchen unit by premium, Italian furniture manufacturer Tecnoform, makes the Terrier standout from its rivals, while its rear seat slides backwards or forwards so larger items can be carried, or to bring passengers closer to the front seats; and with three seat belts, it means a family of five can travel in the Terrier.
Like all good campervans, the Terrier has an elevating roof (or the choice of a high-top roof), with the option of a double bed in it, and fits in to a standard car park space, so is convenient to use every day, yet quickly turns in to a home from home in your leisure time.
David Elliott, Managing Director of Wellhouse Leisure commented: “The feedback from our customers about the Ford Transit Custom and our campervan conversion has been excellent, so we are delighted a leading Ford retailer like Evans Halshaw is now able to offer the Wellhouse Ford Terrier. We are sure its customers will also enjoy the wonderful lifestyle of owning a Wellhouse Ford Terrier campervan.”
With the latest Ford Euro6 engines, and a six-speed manual gearbox (or the option of automatic transmission), prices for the Wellhouse Ford Terrier start from £44,000.

Wellhouse Leisure is a market leader in everyday, compact campervans, and is also an approved supplier of Reimo parts and accessories for campervan conversions. It was established in 2003 and now produces over 200 vehicles a year from its premises (including a factory, bodyshop and showroom) in Skelmanthorpe, near Huddersfield, Yorkshire.
The Wellhouse Ford Terrier is a campervan conversion of the new Transit Custom by one of the UK’s leading and most successful specialist converts, Wellhouse Leisure.
After working closely with Ford UK, Wellhouse Leisure was the first to design and launch a campervan based on the new Ford Transit Custom in the UK.
With key features such as great value for money thanks to a higher specification than most Volkswagen-based rivals, and the car-like ‘driveability’ of the Ford Transit Custom, the Wellhouse Ford Terrier has quickly become one of the best-selling campervans in the UK.
Just weeks after its launch it was voted ‘The Campervan of the Year 2014’ and also shortlisted for the top ‘Motorhome of the Year’ title by experts from two of the UK’s leading motorcaravan magazines, MMM (Motorcaravan Motorhome Monthly) and Which Motorhome – which was a significant accolade in a market dominated by Volkswagen-based campervans.
“This is, quite simply, a superb campervan. Wellhouse has proved that high-quality engineering and design flair are still going strong in England. If you’re in the market for a new campervan, make sure the Ford Terrier is at the top of your list,” said Daniel Attwood, managing editor of motorhome magazine, MMM .
