Before it becomes the Randger 560, Ford develops the Transit AWD van at the Dunton Technical Center in the UK and builds it at its Kocaeli manufacturing center in Turkey. From there, it is sent to the Trigano Group for conversion—a finished Randger 560 features seating for up to five and amenities including a bathroom with shower.
The Randger 560 motorhome is also offered with technologies including Ford SYNC 3, Adaptive Cruise Control, Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, and Traffic Sign Recognition.
Sales of van-based motorhomes in Europe grew by 18% in 2016; Ford supplies some 7,000 Transit Vans for conversion on an annual basis.
Ford also announced that all Ford-based vehicles offered by Trigano Group and purchased from July 1st, 2017, will be covered by an extended five-year warranty. The warranty includes One Call support service for travelers.
