“Just remember that Evie is a camper-car, not a campervan,” Welhouse Leisure’s genial proprietor David Elliot said as he handed me the keys to this Lilliputian conversion.

No worries there. In fact, I’m always being asked to recommend ultra-compact motorhomes by recently bereaved members of the Motor Caravanners’ Club. These enthusiasts are looking to downsize to a small dual-purpose vehicle that drives like a car, because that’s how it is going to be used most of the time. However, it is essential that it has a proper residential conversion for spending weekends away, and, if possible, an onboard toilet into the bargain.

In addition there is a similar demand at the other end of the age spectrum, among folk who need accommodation when they pursue their hobbies – everything from birdwatching to attending heavy-metal music festivals. This crowd also needs a proper car for the daily commute that will fit in their employer’s multi-storey car park.

Amazingly, this little camper-car ticks all the boxes for this very diverse group of potential purchasers. Wellhouse Leisure is well respected as a van converter, and the new Wellhouse Evie really can be all things to all folk.
