The staycation industry is booming. Whether it’s down to families saving money by not heading abroad, post-Brexit fears about passports, or people simply wanting to see more of our own island, many of us are staying in the UK for holidays. And for some that means buying a campervan like this Renault Trafic Paradise VX-e.
While a few manufacturers will sell you a ready-made camper, most will put you in touch with a third-party converter, who will transform a standard van into something you’d want to spend the night in. That’s the case with the Trafic Paradise, which has been created by converter Sussex Campers using a Renault Trafic Passenger as the base vehicle.
For power, it uses the Trafic’s 2.0-litre diesel engine. We'll tell you how well that works in the driving section of this review. We’ll also tell you what the Renault Trafic Paradise VX-e is like inside, how practical it is for a night or two away, and ultimately how it stacks up next to rival campers including the Ford Transit Nugget, the Mercedes V-Class Marco Polo and the VW California.
And don’t forget, if you’re in the market for a new campervan – or any model of new car – we can potentially save you thousands through our free New Car Deals section.
