Cartwright Conversions will exhibit two of its vehicles at this year’s CV Show, including a restyled Ford-approved seven-seat welfare vehicle that will be shown for the first time.
Built on a Ford Transit the welfare conversion has been modified with a Webasto diesel-powered hydronic heating system that provides hot and cold running water quickly and cheaply.
The redesigned messing area includes a microwave, hot water boiler for drinks and cleaning facilities all housed in a new floor to ceiling cabinet.
Cartwright has Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) status for its welfare conversion on the Transit which recognises a converter’s high manufacturing standards and consistent quality.
Only a handful of converters hold this position for a welfare vehicle.
Although a new design it retains the patented rear facing toilet which is accessed separately to the storage area in the back of the vehicle through its own independent door.
The Ford Transit welfare conversion will be built to National Small Series Type Approved standards at Cartwright Conversion’s new premises. The recently acquired 26-acre site in North Lincolnshire, is being redeveloped for the rapidly growing converter.
Cartwright will also showcase its popular eight-seat welfare conversion on a MAN TGE – making them one of the first converters in the Country to offer a MAN welfare van.
Managing Director, Steve Shaw, said: “We are very excited to be launching two new vehicles at the CV Show this year. This is an opportunity for us to showcase our innovative designs on two incredibly versatile and robust LCVs.
“It comes at an exciting time for us as we prepare to move into bigger premises to house our fast-growing range of vehicle conversions.”
Visitors can see the Ford Transit welfare van on the Webasto stand in hall 5 (5C10) and the MAN TGE on the Eberspacher stand in the same hall (5D70).
