Just arrived! This silver 2003 Toyota Alphard – Eco Explorer 2.4 Hybrid automatic 4WD has 30,600 miles on the clock. It is £28,995 and is currently unconverted waiting to be customised to your specification. It comes complete with a CampervanCo warranty.
The five-seater Eco Explorer is the ultimate city-to-country vehicle. Its low-emission, five seats and huge, adjustable boot-space make it the ideal family car about town – with one massive difference – it is also a spacious five-berth campervan. With two bed areas, cooker, fridge, swivel front seats and elevating or hi-top roof… it is also the world’s most versatile and technologically advanced Eco camper in the world! Sleep, cook and drive almost anywhere, there is no rival.
With the five-seater Eco Explorer, you really can enjoy family adventures in the wilderness and never have to worry about finding a campsite with electrics ever again. Our new Hybrid/Tribrid technology removes the need for a 240v hook-up or gas, with power fully supplied inside. That means you can enjoy the peace and solitude of nature outside and full-on comfort within. Stay warm and snug with an inbuilt heating system and charge up tablets, laptops and smartphones with convenient USB points.
Living space is generous with smartly configured interiors that magically adapt into comfortable sleeping spaces for a family of five thanks to our Superglide Varitrack bed. A wider-than-usual bed secured on rails, it sleeps two adults and a child and can be safely positioned to ensure plenty of boot to the back or legroom to the front. Two more people can sleep up above in the elevated roof space. For meals, there is a super-fast detachable induction hob that can be used for cooking on the removable tabletop. There are also a variety of intelligent storage solutions, and of course, panoramic windows front and side for plenty of natural light and stunning views.
This is the ultimate city-to-country campervan. With adaptable boot and living space and seating for five, this is the ideal vehicle for every day living that, on a whim, can head for the hills and provide sleeping, cooking and food storage for up to five people in the remotest of places. With 4WD and super-low emissions under the bonnet, there is nothing that comes near the Explorer for style, ease and adaptability. When you consider this is available from just £28,995, there is only one choice. Be an Explorer!

The Toyota Alphard Hybrid is one of the most popular hybrid vehicles in Japan and incorporates Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive. This combines the power and convenience of a low-emission petrol engine and the economy and efficiency of an electric power capture and drive system. When the engine is running, it charges the battery via the generator; when driving conditions allow, such as in slow-moving traffic, the generator can cut out the petrol engine and let the electric motor take over for zero-emissions driving.
The sophisticated engine management system can sense when the car is stationary and will switch off the engine to conserve power and cut emissions, automatically starting up again when required. The best bit about these vehicles is their ability to capture kinetic energy while driving. Every time the vehicle slows down or brakes, the regenerative braking system converts that movement energy back into electric charge which is stored in the Hybrid battery. This is recycling in its purest form and makes these vehicles greener and more versatile than any campervan on the road.
Our very own über-green Tribrid version offers the economic and ecological benefits of LPG (liquefied petroleum gas), also known as Autogas. This creates safe and efficient natural gas power that works alongside the petrol and electric power options. Not only is LPG half the price of petrol (providing the economic equivalent of 80mpg), it emits a fraction of the toxins associated with petrol and diesel. It can extend tank range to over 1000 miles without refuelling, and provides extra power on motorways or in challenging environments. Offering exceptional range and economy, the Tribrid outperforms any campervan on the market.
