Leisuredrive launches Crusader CT campervan for 2015


Slide out toilet in classic layout

if you like the manoeuvrability of a campervan but aren’t sold on the restricted toilet facilities, then camper conversion specialist Leisuredrive has a model for you. The new Crusader CT is a camper based on the VW T5 SWB with a 2.0-litre engine and comes with metallic paint and air-con. It uses a traditional side kitchen layout but the ace in the hole is the slide-out electric cassette toilet. The toilet can be brought into play when needed, with privacy provided  by dark, tinted side windows, and features an electrically operated flush which uses a heavy-duty electric pump. The toilet can even be used when the bed is down and in the sleeping position. When done, slide it back in out of the way. The key feature is the waste cassette empties from outside the camper so there’s no chance of unfortunate and smelly accidents inside.

Other features include a large, top-loading fridge which operates from the mains or 12v electric supply, Tambour wardrobe door access, window blanker to offside rear and it’s available in elevator or high-top formats. Base price is £39,999 onwards or you can supply your own VW T5 and have it converted, prices starting at £27,990.
