Conversion Specification

Kitchen

Our high spec kitchens have ample work surface, 3 burner hob, 36L oven and grill, 90 or 152L fridge freezer, large pantry drawer and easy access drawer/cupboard storage for cutlery, crockery and pans etc. The large stainless steel sink comes complete with mono mixer, drainer tray and wireware drainer.

Washroom

Our spacious washrooms are fitted with Thetford electric flush toilet, drop down basin and mono mixer, mono shower mixer, mirror storage cabinet, chrome fitted accessories and heating vent outlet.

Living Area

The lounge area comes complete with luxury upholstery, spacious overhead locker storage and two tables which are stored above the cab, a smaller drinks/dinette table and a full size dining table.

Sleeping

The lounge area quickly converts into a comfortable sleeping area using the side cushions as the centre infil and is configured using either an inset or slide out base.

Electrical

The leisure batteries and charging system are key factors in the day to day running of your motorhome so it is important that the leisure batteries are up to the job. We fit 2 x 95a deep cycle leisure batteries as standard (190a).

The Charging System

The quality of your leisure batteries is important, but what is equally important is the means by which the batteries are recharged.

Leisure batteries receive a charge from three sources:

  1. Mains hook up charger
  2. Vehicle alternator charge
  3. Solar panel

1. Mains hook up charger

This has been the most common way of charging the leisure batteries and in the past mains hook up was necessary to maintain a charge to the batteries. Now with alternative charge sources available, it is possible to maintain a charge to the leisure batteries without the need for a constant mains supply, giving you the option to spend more time off grid.

2. Vehicle alternator charge

When the vehicle engine is running, the alternator recharges the vehicle starter battery and by connecting the leisure batteries to the starter battery some of the charge created by the alternator finds it’s way into the leisure batteries, so the leisure batteries will receive a charge when the engine is running.

3. Solar panel

A roof mounted 100w solar panel is a good source of power and we fit one 100w as standard to trickle charge the batteries giving you several days independent camping. To achieve prolonged periods of static mains free camping we recommend that you add a second or third 100w solar panel.

Lighting & USB ports

All our conversions have warm white LED lighting throughout, each light is individually switched to give you total control over your ambient lighting. Numerous USB charging ports are conveniently sited to charge your devices, so you’ll be able to charge several devices at the same time.

230v Mains

4 x 230v sockets are conveniently placed in the kitchen area and lounge for use when you are on mains, we also include a 20m mains hook-up cable as part of our comprehensive package.

Auto Retract Step

The entrance step will extend and retract at the press of a button and for safety reasons will automatically retract as soon as the ignition is turned on.

TV Aerial

Our roof mounted omni-directional digital TV aerial gives you the best possible chance of finding a signal as you retune between areas.

Heating and Plumbing

Water Tanks

We have fully utilised the underside of the van to optimise the volume of the fresh and waste water. The underslung tanks are made of a thick insulated and durable high grade plastic so that they will not freeze when in use during the winter months. There is the option of adding a small defrost element for use in extreme sub-zero temperatures.

Heating and Hot Water

The Truma Combi boiler heating and hot water system operates on either gas or mains electric with an even distribution of heating outlets throughout the van. It is fitted with a digital thermostat and timer so that you can control the heating system day and night.

Refillable Gas Tanks

All our vans are fitted with a 25L underslung gas tank with level guage monitor, this allows you to easily manage your gas and significantly reduces the cost of refilling. The gas shut-off switch is fitted internally or externally depending on the model.

Windows and Rooflights

Privacy tinted Polyvision double glazed windows, Horrex blinds and flyscreens and large Heki rooflights ensure that the living area is light, well ventilated and condensation free.

Insulation

All our van conversions are fully insulated with grade 3 thermal insulation, fully winterised and perfect for all year round use and we include a thermal front screen to insulate the cab area.

Habitation Service

Your Consort conversion will need a habitation service once a year, this is a safety requirement and gives us the opportunity to completely check all aspects of your conversion, it is also a condition of your 5 year warranty.

Base Vehicle Service

Your base vehicle can be serviced at any main Fiat dealership in Europe during your two-year warranty period and thereafter at any service centre/local garage of your choice.

Conversion Options

Leather Trimmed Upholstery

Our luxury upholstery is also available with a front leather trim creating an easy wipe clean and durable finish, the standard cab seats are also available with a leather trim. The upholstery is available in either a Grey or Cream colour scheme.

Sports Seats

The front seats can be upholstered in a sports seat design for added style and comfort.

Fiamma F80S Awning

The Fiamma wind out awning creates the perfect shade area adjacent to the sliding door for those hot sunny days.

Fiamma F80S

Fiamma Rear Door Mounted Bike Rack

The Fiamma carry-bike is designed specifically for the Fiat Ducato and will carry two bikes with a combined weight of up to 35kg. It folds upwards when not in use and still allows access via the rear doors. Other bike racks are available, please ask for details.

Fiamma rear door mounted bike rack.

Tow Bar

We fit a Ducato specific high quality Witter tow bar with 13 pin electrics suitable for towing or to accommodate a tow bar mounted bike rack.

Remis Cab Blinds

Insulated cab screens are supplied as standard however you may wish to add the option of Remis blinds in the cab area.

Optional cab blinds by Remis.

Avtex 24” Digital LED TV/DVD

The Avtex TV/DVD has an auto retune facility which allows you to retune your TV as you travel between different reception areas. We fit this professionally with adjustable bracket and concealed wiring. The 24” digital TV is also available with a smart connect option for access to all catch up and internet based channels - use your phone hot spot or a mobile router for internet access.

Avtex Sound Bar

The Avtex sound bar connects wirelessly to your Avtex TV and allows you to enjoy your music from any device with Bluetooth.

Fitted Cool Air Fan

Our almost silent cool air 12v 3 speed fan with timed on/off and low power consumption creates cool air movement and is a great alternative to a fitted air con unit.

Flyscreen for Sliding Door

An internal sliding flyscreen can be fitted to the sliding door to allow extra ventilation and deter flying insects from getting in.

External Gas Barbeque Point

An external gas barbeque point can be fitted on the near side rear quarter to connect your barbeque to the underslung gas tank supply.

Fresh Water Tank Defrost

A 12v heated element can be fitted to the fresh water tank to prevent the water freezing in extreme sub-zero temperatures.

Paint Protection

A durable high gloss finish to protect your paint work and maintain it’s shine without the need for polish.

Upholstery Protection

Protect your upholstery from spills and stains using the very latest fabric protection.

Mains Free Plus

Additional 100w Solar Panels

A second and third 100w solar panel can be fitted to add even more charge to the leisure batteries, this is ideal for those who prefer to spend more time mains free camping.

Inverters

An inverter will turn the 12v power stored in the leisure batteries to 230v mains power and with careful battery management it is the perfect solution to having occasional mains power when not on hook up.

600w Inverter

A 600w inverter will give you the facility to charge electric bike batteries, use a small hairdryer as well as hair straighteners and any other small electrical appliances.

1000w Inverter

A 1000w inverter will give you all the benefits of a 600w inverter but with an increased output of up to 1000w.

It is worth noting that the use of an inverter will significantly discharge the batteries and so it is important to keep an eye on the battery status and replenish the charge used via mains, alternator/driving or solar.

If it becomes apparent that you are spending more time off grid and your standard leisure batteries are unable to keep up with your increased power usage even with the addition of a second and third solar panel, it may be worth upgrading to a lithium battery.

Lithium Battery

A lithium battery is ideal for extended periods of free camping providing a more constant voltage and the facility to charge and fully discharge the battery many thousands of times, it will therefore last longer between charges.

Conversion Warranty

Your Consort warranty covers quality of materials and workmanship for a period of five years, appliances are covered under the individual manufacturers guarantee.

Full written details of our warranty are available on request and are supplied with the registration paperwork.

Consort Motorhome's 5 year warranty.
