‘Made in France’ usually suggests a gastronomic delight. Here, it signals something with roots across the Channel, but with the kind of input that makes it more suited to UK customers.

In 2017, Bristol-based campervan maker Danbury was bought by French firm Pilote Group, allowing both parties to evolve in the van conversion sector.

Hence the Avenir. With roots in Pilote’s Foxy line, Avenirs are made at its plant in Angers. But it’s Danbury that represents ‘all things van’, selling from its base near Bristol and via five dealers across the UK.
