AUTO-SLEEPER WARWICK DUO REVIEWA rear lounge model where the kitchen takes priority - and featuring minor updates for 2020
'This is a proven model in Auto-Sleepers’ line-up of Peugeot-based van conversions, which grows to eight variants this year with the arrival of the Fairford Plus. It’s also the little brother of the Warwock XL which shares a rear lounge format, but in the longer 6.36m van. For the new season it gets the latest Euro 6d engines – up to 2.2 litres and 165bhp, as well as boasting 20Nm more torque, a larger AdBlue tank and Stop & Start as standard. If you want an automatic, then the Warwick swaps onto the Fiat Ducato with 140bhp engine and the new nine-speed torque converter transmissions.
Further changes concern the heating, which is a new – easy-to-use – system from Whale. In cold chamber tests, the new heater beat the previous unit, while also freeing up space as it’s mounted underneath. A mobile WiFi system has been added to the standard spec ad Thule roof rals are a new option, as is a second roll-out awning fitted over the rear doors.
The usual side awning from Thule is part of the Premium Pack, which also adds Peugeot’s integrated DAB radio with sat-nav, a leather steering wheel (new for 2020), alloy wheels, Al-Ko Air Top suspension, cab air-conditioning, a colour reversing camera with LCD screen, cruise control and a 80W solar panel.
You’ll instantly recognise any Auto-Sleeper campervan with its flush athermic glass side windows – the company uses the Boxer window van as a base. There are four exterior colours to choose from – white, blue, silver or Champagne.'
