Toyota Proace camper launched
The professional conversion is undertaken by conversion specialist G&P of Sandon in Staffordshire.
It took a long-wheelbase Proace and transformed it into a fourth-berth camper equipped with true home-from-home comforts. The original concept made its debut at the recent Motorhome and Caravan Show, opening the way for the first customer orders.
The show car was kitted out with an elevating roof section with roof bed, blackout curtaining, a non-slip floor, swivelling seats (engineered to rib and crash test specifications), an electric access step, kitchen hob and sink, microwave, wardrobe space, fridge-freezer, power sockets, TV, utility shower, “rock-and-roll” bed, portable toilet system and a dining table stowed on the tailgate for use in or outside the vehicle.
Toyota PRO40 special camper unveiled
Based on a standard Toyota Proace van, it has been transformed by specialists G&P into four-berth accommodation, complete with gas hob, fridge-freezer, microwave oven, TV and water supply.
Although the PRO40 has been created to Toyota’s own specifications, customers can achieve a similar conversion for around £12,000, plus VAT. G&P worked with the long-wheelbase Proace, with standard roof height. The PRO40 is powered by a 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine.
Toyota PRO40 gets new livery
Toyota’s motorsport-inspired Proace PRO40 camper conversion has a new look for 2015, re-wrapped in a new livery to celebrate Toyota Gazoo Racing’s champion status in the World Endurance Championship.
Inspired by the success of the team and its star pilots Anthony Davidson and Sebastian Buemi – who jointly claimed the drivers’ championship title – Toyota has updated the PRO40’s racing decals to match this season’s TS040 Hybrid race car. That includes proudly displaying the new number one on the doors.
