Motorhome culture is something that is still emerging in a country like India. The state government and various state tourism departments have now started taking initiative to promote motorhome or caravanning for tourism purposes. Mahindra, one of India’s leading SUV manufacturers, has recently signed an agreement with Campervan Factory, a research-based, IIT Madras-incubated caravan manufacturing company for campers in India. They will build a budget-friendly luxury camper for shoppers in India based on the Mahindra Bolero Dual Cab Camper. While waiting for Mahindra’s official Camper Caravan, we have a video of the Bolero Camper Caravan created by a firm called Motorhome Adventures.
The video was uploaded by Motorhome Adventures to their YouTube channel. In this video, Vlogger Mahindra Bolero talks about all the changes and modifications made to the camper pick-up truck. As part of the conversion, the dual cab design of the pick-up is retained and the flatbed is converted into a seating area.
Before we talk about the features that the Bolero Camper Caravan has to offer, Vlogger shows a slight change in the exterior. The steel rims were replaced with 16-inch all-terrain tires, and it also has features like an air suspension at the rear and market lighting on the roof. The home or area where the bed and other features are included rests entirely on the flatbed, and Vlogger points out that it can be easily separated from other parts of the body if necessary.
One can enter the rear cabin using a slide and drop ladder. There is a suitable door with lock for the door to ensure safety. Considering the lack of space behind the Bolero Camper, Motorhome Adventures has done a great job. There is a bed upstairs and a couch on the floor that can be converted into a bed if needed.
A total of 4 people can sleep inside the cabin. The walls are thermally insulated, have fire extinguishers, fire extinguishers, 112 liter food grade aluminum water tanks, portable toilets, bathrooms, showers, sinks, televisions, circuit breakers, rooftop air conditioning systems, refrigerators and many more. Nicely included inside the caravan.
Showers and sinks have an option to offer even normal and hot water. If it were a single cab bolero pick-up, they would have had more space to design the cabin nicely. The only drawback to that idea is that only two people can sit in the front cabin. Vlogger admits that designing this caravan was challenging due to space constraints but overall they did a great job with it.
There is ample storage space on both sides of the cabin and a solar panel has been installed on the roof. The cost of this type of caravan varies depending on the features asked for by the customer. The starting price of this Mahindra Bolero Camper pick-up caravan is around Rs 14 lakh.
