Vauxhall has detailed a new, officially approved camper van conversion for its latest Vivaro

The Vivaro Elite Campervan is based on the range-topping version of the Vivaro van, and is converted by UK-based specialists Wellhouse Leisure. It's due on sale early next year priced from £46,000. 

Also confirmed to be under development and expected to be launched next year is an all-electric version, based on the recently launched Vivaro-e

The four-seat camper receives a full suite of upgrades including a pop-up roof system with optional upper roof bed, a 25-litre fridge, an on-board water tank and a 2.2kW auxiliary heating system. Both 12-volt and 240 volt power units are offered, too. 

A kitchenette with sink and two gas-powered hobs is also included, as is a bespoke interior lighting package. The rearmost seats make way for a fold-out bed, too. The leisure battery can be topped up via a 100W solar panel, while the driver and front passenger seats can swivel to face the rear. An optional fifth seat is also available. 

Like the standard Vivaro Elite, standard kit includes front and rear parking sensors and a rear parking camera, a head-up display, sat-nav and adaptive cruise control.  Wellhouse Leisure's conversion also maintains the Vivaro's three-year/100,000-mile warranty.

Agree if you have a bed you need a shower and toilet what you get is a fridge and hob to make a cup of tea. But there are loads in the SW so I must be missing summat.

I've never understood these.  How many nights of bed and breakfast at a good pub could you buy for £46,000?

Hlonestly can't understand why anyone would buiy one of these or the VW equivalent when for relatively little extra money you could get a proper motorhome. With that rather essential extra - a toilet. No idea how anyone would manage otherwise.

I wouldn't buy one of these but my California is absolutely the best car purchase I've ever made. You can't use a motorhome as a car, and the VW can go all sorts of places that a motorhome can't, and it's actually nice to drive. It's plenty big enough for 2, we went up to Scotland this year for a month, hardly saw anyone, no campsites needed. Since I got the VW I've sold my Jag XF as I never drove it.

Having said all that, you do pay for it - a "white whale" motorhome would have been a lot cheaper.

I would have this over a motorhome, and I can see why many would. It can fit in a normal space easily enough, and can be used for general running around. Plus, it will be lighter on fuel.
