Ford’s Transit/Tourneo Custom Nugget has sleeping accommodations for four people, who can cook their meals and store their gear on board. It also has a folding table, 180-degree swivel front seats, a hot tub, a gas stove, a refrigerator with drawers, and additional items that will make life away from home comfortable.

There are several engines available for the Nugget, including a 168 hp (170 hp/125 hp) kilowatt) 2.0-litre diesel and hybrid engine, which is basically the icing on the cake. The electrified mill combines an electric motor and a 2.5-liter gasoline mill to produce a combined power of 229 PS (232 hp / 171 kW). It has 11.8 kilowatt hours The battery pack gives it an electric range of up to 31 miles (50 km) when fully charged.

The regular block seems to be quite nice for Delta4x4’s sister company Loder1899. As a result, they set out to make it more powerful, at least on paper, as these are the official renderings of the actual vehicle that will supposedly be launched at some point in the near future.

Compared to the regular Transit Custom on which it was based, it featured a raised suspension that increased ground clearance by 80 mm (3.2 in). The wagon rides on 18-inch wheels wrapped in 255/55 all-terrain tires, and features a headlight with two additional lights up front, more lights attached to the roof rack, and a few other things that will definitely come in handy off-road. Track, including all-wheel drive.

What distinguishes it from the standard Transit Custom are the wheel arch extensions and the two-tone brown-black finish. The camper can carry additional gear on the roof, including a full-size spare wheel, next to the pop-up tent that features a ladder for easy access. Tinted windows provide some much-deserved privacy for those inside.

Unfortunately, Delta4x4 hasn’t posted photos of the cockpit and living space, but we can assume it has a kitchenette, extra storage spaces, and some other amenities, including extra sleeping quarters inside. Knowing that, this is what we believe, and it’s not based on anything, so you may want to take this alleged information with a pinch of salt.

Delta4x4 hasn’t said anything else about this project, though it encourages those interested in converting a Ford Transit/Tourneo Custom into a camper van to get in touch. If you do, don’t forget to drop a line below and let us know how much the conversion costs are and what they include.
