Just a quick note to yourself and to all your staff to say how pleased I am with the part conversion. I would also like to point out how pleased I was with everyone's help and advice.

Many thanks to all for the van, absolutely delighted with it. Had it's first outing last week and everything is fine. A significant improvement on camping in the back of the car! Excellent workmanship, quality build.

Highly Recommended

Best wishes



Dear Leisuredrive, just a quick email to let you know how very pleased I am with the Crusader I purchased from you last November. Have just returned from an enjoyable break on the Gower Peninusula, and I can confirm that everything with the van is spot on. The bed, when made up, is the most comfortable I have used in a campervan.

Leisure Drive Re-introduce their Renoir classic campervan using the Renault Traffic

Back in the late 80's and 90's Leisuredrive had a model named the Renoir, it proved a big success but it was eventually replaced. However for 2019 the Renoir is back-and using a Renault Traffic a van offering excellent value for money. Of course the Traffic was looked at by the design team and work was soon on the go designing a side kitchen with rearward facing seats. The Elevating roof was to add more headroom yet keeping the Renoirs profile low when on the road for better economy.


So the new Renoir has much to live up to from that classic design from the past. Using their 50 years of design and quality workmanship the latest Renoir is as you would expect a masterpiece! I took the Renoir through the Forest Of Bowland down small winding lanes and over the tops searching for an ideal spot to pitch up. The Renault proves a good vehicle and easy to drive too. Going off the main roads means the size won't present many problems for the novice campervan user.


Eventually finding some wooded side pull in's what would prove nigh on impossible even with a compact coachbuilt motorhome it was relatively easy to park up the Renoir using its reversing camera. Pitched up by a small stream even on a cold day in December the view from the kitchen side window was superb. Okay so looking around the Renoir from the exterior and graphics have been kept subtle so no spoiling the exterior looks. No alloys are fitted but these can be added when you order. There is a mains input socket on the offside while the rear doors open to locate storage for the fresh water and gas. A rearward seat is also placed here so the rear of the Renoir can be used for seating.


Step inside using the side sliding doors and your straight into the lounge area with kitchen facing you. This is a spot where light meals can be prepared using the one piece stainless steel sink/twin burner hob and glass worktops. There's a fridge plus plenty of cupboard storage for a campervan this size and also for night use LED lights are used to offer night illumination. Now a trick here is with the front passenger seats, these can be turned around quite easy to face the double seat opposite. A slide on table then makes this perfect for dinning even up to four folk.


There is a twin mains socket by the kitchen too and small wardrobe which also has the electrics control panel fixed to it. More storage is placed on top of the wardrobe - Leisuredrive's designers have used every inch of space to create storage with also added storage beneath the rear forward facing seats. These seats also convert to the decent sized 6x4 double bed plus are like the three front seats belted so allowing up to five to travel in the Renoir.


The Renoir is a neat, compact campervan with great features such as the front reversible passenger seats. It's also got that quality build, design and also the 50 years of experience behind the Leisuredrive name. Leisuredrive will also arrange for a private viewing to your doorstep just one of the many attributes this company have to its customers new and old. I liked the Renoir - ideal for easy parking and everyday use too and also as a quick getaway for weekend breaks. The Renoir is as its name implies a master piece in campervan design and value!
