In 2020 we decided we needed a camper to add to our range that was more like the Mazda Bongo’s we used to import and build many years ago. Campervan sales have gone through the roof in 2020 but not everyone wants or needs a new fancy campervan and many just want a more car like vehicle that can be used daily but you can also use as a campervan.
The Serena is is 4.77m long and 1.73m wide and under 2m high and its small than the Toyota Alphard & Honda Elysions we also convert.
When we import anything from Japan we always make sure the mechanical side of things are compatible with European models and the Serena shares it MR20DE engine with 17 other models of which some of them are European cars such as the Renault Clio, Laguna, Safrane, Megane, Scenic and Nissan X-Trail, Qashqai, NV200 so no worries on getting parts.

REAR CONVERSION. This is where we keep the middle row of seats that fold down to make 2 x single beds and they come with a set of infill cushions and mattress that makes them flat. The rear conversion keeps 3 belted seats in the rear (2 x 3-point, 1 x lap belt) The conversion is a set of units on each side thus allowing access through the back doors or the 2 x sliding side doors. It comes as standard with glass top hob & sink, electric water pump, gas bottle in sealed locker, 25 ltr compressor fridge, fresh water tank, leisure battery, solar panel, wardrobe, driver & passenger swivel seats. Heater (£900) and mains hook up (£300) can be added as extra. This of this conversion as a camping car not a campervan.
SIDE CONVERSION NEW for 2022. The side conversion will have the same elevating roof as the rear conversion but it will have a full side conversion with a 2 seater rock & roll double bed, passenger swivel seat, 25 ltr compressor fridge, fresh water tank, leisure battery, solar panel. The side conversion will come with heater and mains hook up as standard. The side conversion adds £3000 as there is a lot more work in a side conversion and more parts plus the heater & mains which is included equates to £1100.
