ARB UK set to display its Ford Transit-based van at February NEC Show

ARB UK is set to have its ‘Camper’ Van on display at the February NEC Show, a Ford Transit-based model which has been transformed into what it describes as ‘a mobile bed and breakfast’.

The model is set to be displayed at the upcoming Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show at the NEC (13th-18th February), where visitors on the hunt for the best campervan will be able to see the latest releases from the biggest names.

ARB has given it “a total facelift”, with the end result being an eye-catching ‘van with plenty of spec. Features include a four-person rooftop tent and AirLocker differentials, with the latter making off-road destinations easier to access. As well as this, it comes with modular storage drawers, a tent awning and electric cool boxes, while a gas cooker, a sink and an area for food preparation can be found in the slide-out kitchen unit.

ARB will be appearing in Hall 5, stand 5136, where demonstrations will be held throughout the event to show how the rooftop tent can be put into position.

Matt McConaghy, Commercial Director of ARB UK, said: “This fully kitted-out vehicle showcases the versatility and quality of the complete ARB range, setting new standards for convenience and efficiency in the industry. It perfectly encapsulates our mission to offer drivers the ability to fully customise their vehicle – whether it’s a van, car, 4×4 or pick-up truck – to do exactly what they need it to, and more.”

Other brands have been sharing information about upcoming releases. This includes the new look Joa Camp is giving its 2024 models, while Erwin Hymer Group UK has revealed more about its new Xplore campervan. Hymer is set to launch the ML-T 570 this spring too.
