For those seeking all the comfort and convenience of a camping car in a smaller scale, the customised, 4-5 seater Patagonia van is for you!
The Patagonia series vans are the only ones to offer in addition to stationary heating, a shower stall (with hot water, of course) and a WC.
A high capacity water supply, lots of storage space, solar panels, two gas bottles, a roomy fridge : the Patagonia provides really long-term autonomy.
This converted van, a small camping car, is ideal for couples who want maximum comfort or for families. The 4-seater version (5.41m long and 2.60m high) has a double bed below and two single beds in the front. There’s a 5-seater version (5.99m long and 3m high) that has 2 bunk beds in the back, a double bed in the middle and a removable spare bed that can be put up over the two front seats.
The customised Patagonia van is also ideal for campers on a budget who nevertheless seek a vehicle that is easy to drive and park and does not compromise on comfort.
The customised Patagonia van is designed for year-round travel, even in the heart of winter, thanks to its insulation, its stationary heating system, its on-board shower and its large living space.
Day and night configuration
Different models* of the converted Patagonia vans have been designed to carry between 4 to 5 people in the utmost comfort.
The standard Patagonia offers 4 seats plus a 5th removable seat (in the 5 seater version). The two front seats can swivel 180° for family meals.
There’s plenty of storage room where you can store all your gear: kitchen cupboards, a closet, shelves and an underseat chest.
All of the lateral and back windows are tinted allowing you to see out but protecting you from unwanted onlookers!
