Camper Pamper Pods

You may have heard us banging on about Leisure Hubs for the last few days, so, in the words of Monty Python, now for something completely different…

Well, not entirely different, but certainly a great new concept to consider if you already own a van or are looking to buy a van for multiple purposes.

Camper Pamper pods are the brain child of Leisure Hubs, promising all the luxury and function of our bespoke van conversions in the form of easy to use pods, which slide in and out of your van, with minimal fuss and maximum practicality.

Going camping for the weekend can be a messy, tiring affair. Cooking food can be tedious, constantly battling the elements to fry bacon and having to buy fresh food to be cooked immediately, or tinned or packaged delights to be consumed at an unhealthy rate.

The Pods we provide, extinguish all of the above, and promise a unit with all the creature comforts you need to prolong your stay for as long as you wish.

Ok, let’s start from the top, the kitchen unit top to be precise. With a stylish glossy black finish and inset 2 ring Smev hob and sink combo, the unit has the ability to rustle up an omelet, fry bacon or even seer a fillet steak to perfection, while the sink is at hand for all the washing up; taking away some of the worst inconveniences of camping in a flash and can be tidily tucked away with help of the hinged cover.

Time to throw away the cold tins of beans and Jaffa cakes, you can finally eat fresh everyday when away, with the use of our built in Waeco CR50 refrigerator with consumption compressor.

The high quality fridge provides enough storage space for all your basic needs, with its 48 litre fridge and 5 litre freezer: great for storing food, water and of course alcohol…well, you are on holiday!
If you are of the inclination to fill the built in fridge with beer and wine then fear not…the subtle panel in the centre of the pod conceals the Nespresso Pixie Coffee Maker. Tucked away neatly using a sliding mechanism, the hidden coffee maker is both subtle and functional, saving space which is essential when developing pods for more compact spaces.

In addition to this, the Camper Pamper pod has numerous design features to control your power usage, with dial to monitor battery power and a control panel for the fridge, tap and pump, the practical pod, has everything to keep you aware of power usage and make your journey a smooth one.

The high quality pod is constructed from laminated 15mm popular ply, for a structure which is not only stylish but sturdy, a factor which is often overlooked when developing mobile units.

With its easy to use design features and abundance of style, Camper Pamper pods are an exciting new addition to your current van, promising all the luxuries of a home kitchen fitted neatly into the back of your vehicle.

Leisure Hubs at Busfest

After many long nights and hard work we finally developed two prototype vehicle to be displayed at this year's Busfest.
Dogs enjoyed our integrated shower 

Armed with two VW T5 transporters, an abundance of style and a sprinkle of innovative technology, we set up camp at the annual show in Malvern to display our brand new Leisure Hubs vans and Camper Pamper pods.

It was great to see all our hard work paying off, as both the vans and pods gained a huge reception, with our audience admiring the meticulous attention to detail and luxury contemporary living our concepts had to offer.

Our biggest hit on the day was the hot shower. A simple, stylish and practical design which we recessed into the back of the van which has a number of uses when travelling the open road or staying over at a camp site.

The hot shower is not only great for keeping yourself clean while on your travels but also the ideal solution to cleaning dirty dogs after muddy walks across the countryside; leaving your van clean with minimal fuss.

As the sun began to take its toll on the audience, the shower really came into effect as passers by were simply dying to cool down and test out or latest innovation.

By the night time, Busfest provided a night show, keeping the campers partying through until morning.

We had an amazing time, receiving great feedback on both of our campers; and this was just the preview!

Our official launch will be at the Motor home and Caravan Show at the NEC Birmingham on October 16th. In the mean time follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook and check out our Flikr for sneak previews, news and updates on our designs.
