German campervan manufacturer Westfalia has revealed its range of new campervans for the 2018 season.
It has also confirmed that, for the first time, it will be selling its Kepler and Jules Verne campervans here, which are built in France and have only ever been sold in the French domestic market, according to Out and About Live.
Of the new German-built models launched for the coming season, Westfalia will feature the new Sven Hedin, which uses Volkswagen’s all-new medium-wheelbase, high-roof Crafter.
