Episode #06: Industry Insights - the campervan sector - David Elliott shares his views as Wellhouse Leisure celebrates its 20th anniversary

David Elliott is the CEO and founder of Wellhouse Leisure, and is celebrating 20 years since he founded the business and started converting campervans.

He started by converting good quality used vans imported from Japan, such as the Mazda Bongo, then the Toyota Granvia, before progressing to new vans, such as the Hyundai i800 – which won several awards.

I’ve known David since 2013, when Wellhouse Leisure was the first to produce a campervan conversion of the new Ford Transit Custom – the Terrier – which was successfully launched at the October NEC show.

Since then, David has worked closely with a variety of van brands – with great success. Its main brands for new vans are currently converts Ford Transit and Toyota Proace. And he still offers great value conversions on used vans from Japan.

David could definitely be described as quite a character! He has the typical common sense and straight talking you’d expect from a Yorkshireman! He’s also raised lots of money for charity by running marathons and hosting charity balls.
