Out with the old…
For 2018 we will no longer offer Dutch Campers in our range. The transition from small scale manufacturer supplying local clients to supplying international dealers is a big step, in this case too big and they have decided their best future is to go back to their roots. We’ve become good friends over the years and we wish them well.
In with the new…
We’ve been working on the development of our own Django range for some time now. With the super compact Gazell at one end and the luxurious Herman Royal Sport range at the other we already have the absolute best campers available at each end of the spectrum.
The Django range will fill the gap and complete the line up. It launches in February with the compact ‘pop top’ Django One, a fabulous all season, go anywhere camper featuring solid sided lifting roof, huge permanent double bed, superb galley, cassette toilet and even a shower option. Django One will be joined later by Django 200, a fixed roof version of Django One and Django 220 a wider ‘full size’ version.
Designed & engineered in the UK, the Django range is built to our exacting standards in Solvenia by Herman. Herman are very well known on the continent, especially in Germany, where they are renowned for their extremely high quality and super light weight. Their skilful use of carbon fibre with lavish yet light weight, durable interiors combine to create something very special indeed.
Eager customers are only half the battle though, you have to be able to meet that demand too; enter Herman’s brand new purpose built factory now well under way in Celje. The new factory will ensure Herman are able to meet demand well into the future. Production will be moved there in the Spring with the first campers rolling out the doors there in April.

Herman Royal Sport 250, 280 & 300
The Royal Sport range has been improved once again for 2018 with the arrival of the new ‘X’ range. The original Royal Sport Classic range was beautifully built and finished but perhaps a little bulky for UK roads. The new RS 250X is more compact and we feel much more attractive too. The alloy perimeter frame and carbon fibre bodyshell is incredibly tough and lightweight and Herman’s interiors are just beautiful. Having weight to spare allows Herman to offer a number of unusual options including the unusual ‘pop top’. This novel feature provides an additional heated sleeping area for two adults allowing up to six adults to be accomodated in comfort. Alternatively two couples or Mum & Dad and the kids can simply enjoy having their own space at night. Versions available for almost all Single, Extra and Double Cab pickups. Average weight around 500kg. Show camper arriving late February. Current lead time approx 15 weeks
When you absolutely, positively have to get there you know a Land Cruiser won’t let you down. And the most popular Land Cruiser camper on the planet? Why the Trayon of course; a marriage made in heaven to survive in hell. Average weight around 400kg. Show camper available by appointment in Switzerland. Current lead time 4 to 15 weeks depending on model
