The Latest Concept

The cutting edge of our highly acclaimed range of campervan conversions based on the Toyota Alphard, the Purbeck is the first to offer a rear kitchen conversion. It maintains the Imperial tradition of providing an unbeatable combination of efficient and thoughtful design with a highly competitive price.

The layout reflects traditional campervan values, but the execution benefits from Imperial’s several decades experience of incorporating flexible facilities into a compact and highly flexible platform. Boasting a kitchen that is equally suited to interior or exterior use, the Purbeck offers the excitement of the great outdoors along with the reassurance of a wholly self-contained interior in less inviting weather.

Culinary Elegance

The two-burner hob in the Purbeck’s kitchen was specially chosen to be equally functional from inside and outside the vehicle: the controls are easily accessed without leaning across hot pans or searing flames. With access from both sides, two cooks can work simultaneously to feed a hungry group. With the substantial cover in place over the hob and its matching integral sink unit, the available surface for food preparation would outdo many motorhomes on the market.

Even more space is available to an al fresco chef, thanks to the innovative fold-up table incorporated into the rear panel. Even the storage cupboards open both front and rear. The portable 10-litre tank with submersible pump is a highly cost-effective source of on-board running water, while the adjacent gas locker accommodates a Campingaz 904 bottle. Of course, there’s a refrigerator too! The Waco 36-litre compressor unit will respond immediately to your spontaneous decision to take the family away for a sunny weekend of camping.


A leisure battery provides on-site power for the refrigerator, lights and other 12-volt accessories when there is no mains hook-up. When there is, electrical power is managed by an automatic control unit and, safety once again, an RCD and trip switches. Hook up to a 240V supply so any home appliance can be safely used - heater, toaster, T.V, it’s a genuine home from home.

No Compromise on Safety

Your safety and that of your passengers is of the utmost important, and for that reason, our Purbeck conversion retains the Alphard’s fully crash tested factory fitted middle seats. With the original outer 3-point seat belts and middle lap belt, up to 5 people can be securely carried in total comfort.

Add to that two integral ISOFIX mounts, the internationally standardised child seat fitting system, and you have the protection of the quickest, easiest and safest way to carry your family.

As you would expect on any modern luxury vehicle, all Toyota Alphards are fitted with a host of safety features such as airbags, ABS braking systems, parking sensors and some even with lane assist systems.

Living in the Purbeck

In addition to the comfortable travel seats, the Purbeck features forward and side facing rear seats for lounging and dining. You can easily sit four people around the table. Storage lockers feature tambour doors, so you can’t trip over them when they’re open. Low energy LED lighting creates an atmospheric ambience as dusk falls.

Night Time Comfort

The original travel seat easily folds down to provide a full-width bed, together with an integral slatted base, making set-up a simple operation! With Imperial’s specially designed optional mattress offering you the luxury of a 6’1” x 4’9” perfectly flat double bed, you are guaranteed a restful night’s sleep. Add the gas-assisted rising roof to your Alphard and children will love their own cosy overnight perch up top. Optional tailor-made silver window screens add privacy and security.
