2nd May, 2012

Winnebago’s stylish camper van, the Diversion, is now available in two distinctly different internal lay-outs, both of which are functional and practical as well as offering superb comfort.

The Diversion range has always offered complete and utter luxury for driver and passengers alike. Spacious, refined, and highly equipped, you can relax in the soft front seats which swivel around else relax, depending on yourthe chosen lay-out, on the rear ultra-leather sofa lounge which electrically adjusts to a sumptuous day lounge or comfortable double bed, else on the twin lounges which also double as single beds convertible to a double bed if required.

Diversion can sleep four adults as it is equipped with an electric roll down bed which drops from the ceiling at the touch of a button and can be stopped in any position, used as a low double bed or is adjustable to provide a “bunk effect” to sleep additional people.

Just released by Winnebago to the market and now available in the Diversion range is the choice of a twin lounge area in the rear of the vehicle, the lounge cushions doubling as single beds to provide addition full size bedding if so desired. Whilst the lounges can be kept in a single bed format, they are easily converted to a large double bed by simply sliding the lounge seats towards the centre.

In both lay-outs, the Diversion is equipped with seatbelts for four people to allow everyone to travel legally and with safety.

Effectively and cleverly, Winnebago Diversion offers two living areas for those travelling including the very spacious kitchen area, noticeable when you first enter the van through the oversized side sliding door.

Certainly the feeling upon entering the Diversion is one of space and luxurious refinement, the light coloured furniture complimenting the sumptuous beige ultra-leather trim including the driver and passenger seats which swivel and recline to provide the ultimate in relaxation.

Enjoy a fantastic meal from the large well equipped kitchen and the bathroom is oversized in comparison to other equivalent camper vans as to better accommodate your personal needs offering hot and cold showers, a flushing toilet, vanity and ample fresh water supply.

The Diversion is manufactured on the renowned Mercedes-Benz 316. The powerful 2.2 litre turbo diesel engine flawlessly interacts with the 5-speed fully automatic or manual transmission to provide a smoother ride with power to spare.

The high specification level on offer includes the electric windows and mirrors, cruise control and trip computer and all the safety related features expected from a Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicle.

To compliment this very high specification level, Winnebago provides within the living area of the camper van, standard features such as an external wind-out awning, a flat screen television with a built in DVD player all supported by a power boosted TV aerial, a refrigerator which operates on three power sources either 240 volt supply, gas or battery power, roof air-conditioning for cooling or heating, a large shower with hot and cold water supply from the fresh water holding tank, a flushing toilet and hand basin and much more.
