YES, an annual service is required. The two-year structural warranty only remains in place if your camper is serviced each year by Broad Lane Leisure, (the sole Mink Camper agent in the UK) by their fully qualified technicians, or approved agents.

Insurance for a Mink Camper can be arranged through our trusted partner - Caravan Guard. The estimated premium to insure the base unit is £267, with the final annual premium being determined by your chosen specification, storage and personal details.
Yes! - We strongly recommend the purchase of a wheel and hitch lock, which will also form part of your basic insurance requirements. The chassis and hitch assembly are made by AL-KO with security items readily available for both.
Despite being incredibly well built and insulated, if venturing into colder climates you will benefit from the inclusion of the comprehensive heating. With the fully integrated air flow system, warmth is actually circulated around the side walls and under the bed compartment! The Solara solar panel is also a great option that will provide peace of mind power, and back-up, whilst off grid or out in the sticks. The cargo platform will also further enhance the usability of the sports camper! After that is really is down to personal choice in relation to bike racks, or the fantastic Bose Sound system etc. Mink Campers list a good selection of well-chosen factory supplied accessories and options here click here
The Mink Camper is essentially a sleeping and lounging pod, where you can connect the cosy clutter-free interior - to the outside world! Other than the bedroom area and the comprehensive kitchen across the rear - accessed from outside - there are no further facilities provided on board.
The double bed is 2m x 1.4m, and there is a bunk which may be used as a child's bed or for additional storage - Max 40kgs weight bearing.
A solution may be to combine it with the purchase of an awning or separate toilet tent - our Mink specialists will help with this.
At only 490kgs ex works, the Mink Camper is one of the lightest Sports Campers on the market, which can easily be towed by most cars… even some electric ones!
"So, can I or can’t I tow...?"
Starting with a net (empty) weight of just 490kg, and gross weight (maxing-out) at 750kg, towing a Mink Camper is unlikely to be either a physical or legal challenge for anyone with a UK drivers licence - even if you passed your test after 1st January 1997.
To check out where you stand legally though, just click through to the government website https://www.gov.uk/towing-with-car where you will find all the answers and dispel the myths relating to the age old question “Can I or can’t I tow” ?
The bottom line is to ensure you are safe, the vehicle you are towing is safe and secure, and that others on your journey will be safe too!

Here are a three of our own little nuggets to get you going:-
Don’t think you can’t... because you can! ~ Think of all those out there enjoying their free time having fun and looking forward to their next road trip for a spectacular view or breath of fresh air! Surely they can’t all be better towers, or drivers, than you? Once you have a few trips under your belt you will soon get the hang of it!
Don’t tow too fast… or even worse, tow too slow! ~ We have all seen the two extremes - by all means take your time but don’t dither and dally about! If you do find the traffic building up behind you - PULL OVER! Let the stress disappear and once it’s clear join in at the rear!
Have a practice first ~ If you are worried about towing, try and have a practice on a local industrial estate or choose a spot where it will be quieter of an evening or at the weekend. Try reversing. Our top tip here is to go faster backwards than at a snails pace… this way it will be easier to see what the effect of turning the steering wheel is. Go slow, you will never no… until it’s too late and you end-up in a pickle!
Just remember to take you time and enjoy the journey wherever it takes you! If you are worried about hitching-up, towing or reversing - anything really - our team of specialists will always be on hand to help you.
