Mark is a professional Triathlon coach, who visited NWCC back last year to discuss his ideas and inspirations for his T5.1 conversion, the vehicle had to work for him and his profession enabling Mark the flexibility and versatility to sleep, eat and travel all over Europe at selected Triathlon events.
Mark opted for NWCC’s most popular conversion, The “Traditional LUX” with several clever upgrades, such as Westfalia towbar, rear speaker upgrade, Eberspacher D2 Heater, 150watt solar panel, Titan black and electric blue seating, Highmacs work surfaces and first row swivel seating to really help open up the interior space.
Two of the above upgrades combined together transform this vehicle into a all year round off grid camper stretching it’s versatility and functionality way beyond the standard Traditional LUX. 1…..The Eberspacher providing that all year round heat source, 2…….The 150watt elevating roof mounted solar panel so thin and discreet most would not know it was there, this option provides around 6APH being injected into the leisure battery source providing endless off grid power.
Mark wanted to keep this build subtle with Mike even having to talk him into the electric blue top stitch to tie in with the “whittleFit” branding.
The Triathlon athletes are already huge customers of ours at NWCC with several coming through the door every year, we are now lucky enough to have Mark acting as a rolling advert for us and we hope he is proud of his investment and will show his fellow Tri athletes and customers.
The below is one of the WhittleFit paragraphs, which we personally love here at NWCC and if you add the word “van” in selected places our end goals are both exactly the same, we are proud to have worked with whittleFit brand and we hope to collaborate again in the near future.
