a small fitted van with a pop-up roof

The new Campérêve Magellan 540 Air is a compact fitted van that offers space for 4 people on board, thanks to its layout and its pop-up roof.

Specialist in fitted vans since 1978, Campérêve is now part of the French group Rapido, and offers high-end fitted vans in its catalog. This new Campereve Magellan 540 Air abandons the Fiat Ducato carrier to now use a Peugeot Boxer base, equipped with a 2.2-litre BlueHDi diesel engine of 140 horsepower, coupled to a manual gearbox.

With its length of only 5.41 meters, this fitted van is particularly compact, which will benefit its maneuverability and make parking easier. Its trick lies in the presence of a pop-up roofwhich houses a comfortable double bed 130 x 200 cmperfect for accommodating two children or even two adults.

Campérêve Magellan 540 Air: space for four

On board, there is a rather classic layout, with a front lounge equipped with two pivoting cabin seats, a sliding forward-facing bench seat, as well as a retractable table: enough to comfortably accommodate 4 people for trips and meals. The atmosphere is modern and bright, thanks in particular to the presence of the skyview glass roof above the cabin.

At the back, there is a bedroom with a lit double transversal de 132/108 x 195 cm, which therefore completes the double berth of the pop-up roof. The space is clever with storage cupboards in the roof, while there is a closet not far from there. The technical hold is modular, and a second 100 Ah cell battery is available.

Campérêve Magellan 540 Air: extensive equipment

On the side, the kitchen unit has a two-burner stove, a sink, a 90 liter compressor refrigerator, as well as plenty of storage. Opposite, there is a small bathroom with a shower, a sink and a compact toilet.

Clever, this space is modular thanks to the Duo’Space system: it is a pivoting wall, which allows the toilet area to be transformed into a real shower cubicle, to minimize splashes on the furniture. The set is equipped with tanks of 110 liters of clean water, and 85 liters of waste water.
