We took the Transit Custom Nugget on a day out around the Gower, and here’s what we thought…
Added: 13 November 2020
The Transit Custom Nugget is Ford’s first very first campervan and has a lot to offer, we were lucky enough to have the camper in our showroom for a week in October so we took it out for a spin.
The Custom Nugget powered by Ford’s 2.0 litre four-cylinder EcoBlue diesel engine was a lovely vehicle to drive, it was also a nice bonus that it was an automatic especially on those windy Gower roads. Inside the driving seat is packed with technology, including adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, a rear view camera as well as an eight-inch infotainment system fitted with sat nav, Apple Carplay and Ford Sync 3. It even has a folding handbrake, designed to increase the room in the cabin.
Our first stop was Bracelet Bay, where we parked up for a cup of tea made on the dual burner gas hob in the kitchen. The Nugget has space for a 2.8kg gas cylinder and holds 42l fresh and waste water tanks, more than we needed for a cuppa. We pulled out the Westfalia camping chairs and table that come free with the campervan and soaked up the view.
Our next stop was Oxwich Bay and this showed us that the nugget campervan is the perfect base for a day trip to the beach. The Nugget has its own kitchen with a fully functioning sink, a 40L fridge and plenty of storage space. The front seats of the van swivel to face the living area, allowing up to five people to be seated at the table, creating a nice dining area.
We were impressed by the outdoor shower, which was particularly handy to wash off any sand, however, we wouldn’t recommend using this for anything more than a quick wash.
For those overnight stays, the three travel seats can be folded down to create a low level double bed. Then the adjustable tilt roof creates a high level double bed, meaning you’ll have plenty of room to sleep up to four people in this campervan. The set up of the beds is so easy, even us camping newbies could do it!
In summary, the Custom Nugget camper van has everything you need and more for a perfect camping adventure.
