Ford Transit Custom Nugget Review 2024

Ford Transit Custom Nugget At A Glance

+Will sleep up to four adults, fully fitted kitchenette, available with Ford's powerful 185PS EcoBlue diesel.

-Not available until 2020.

The Ford Transit Custom Nugget has been developed in partnership with Westfalia and can sleep up to four people, with a double bed in the pop-up roof compartment and a second one in the living area.

The camper provides space for up to five adults to socialise with a forward facing bench accommodating three, while the driver and front passenger seats swivel 180 degrees to face the rear.

All versions of the Nugget are supplied with an L-shaped kitchenette at the rear, which includes a double burner gas cooker and a 40-litre refrigerator. The van also has running water, via a 40-litre tank that supplies the taps that are attached to the chrome-nickel steel sink.

Standard equipment for the van includes privacy glass for the rear flip-open windows and a wood-effect floor. The Nugget also gets an auxiliary diesel-powered heater, while bike racks and an uprated sound system are available as optional extras.

Onboard wifi will allow the van's occupants to connect up to 10 devices wirelessly with a maximum range of 15 metres. Ford says this will allow children to sit outside, while streaming a movie or TV show to their compatible tablet or smartphone. 

The Transit Custom Nugget is powered by Ford’s 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine; the 130PS version costs from £56,273 while a more powerful 185PS variant is also available with a choice of manual and automatic transmission, priced from £57,229 and £58,199, respectively. 

Ask Honest John

What's the best camper van for a family of three?

"We are new to the world of campers and would like to buy a van. What would be the best camper van for a family of three?"
A camper based on a medium-size van like the Ford Transit Custom or Volkswagen Transporter would be fine for a family of three because it provides two double beds (one in the raised roof compartment and another via the rear seats). If you have the budget then I'd recommend Volkswagen California and Ford Transit Custom Nugget - both are excellent. However, if you don't have £40k+ to drop on a camper then there are a lot of cheaper alternatives that have been converted by independent specialists.
