The Opel Vivaro Campervan Story

< back

At Stuart Insurances, we spend most  of our time engaging with our customers to sort out their camper insurance policies,  and our customers  are located all across Ireland. However, when we’re not doing that, we’re creating blogs like this one to bring you some of the rich history of campervan and how they have evolved over the years and getting to know the background stories that make campervanning such a widely enjoyed pastime. 

In this particular blog, we take a brief look at the Opel Vivaro, a van that has plenty of scope for conversion to on-road living due its spacious interior. To see how the vehicle came to be as it is today, we go back to France in the 1980s and the inception of the Renault Trafic.

An Evolving Campervan Favourite

The Opel Vivaro story began around 40 years ago when French auto-manufacturer, Renault, created the Renault Trafic - a model that was also marketed under the name Fiat Talento in certain parts of Europe. This light commercial vehicle - also sold in the UK as the Vauxhall Vivaro - had a number of evolutions along the way, serving as something of a professional workhorse for many.

2001-2014 - the Opel Vivaro A 

2014-2018 - the Opel Vivaro B

2019-Present - the Opel Vivaro C

The latest and current evolution of the Opel Vivaro is based on the 3rd generation Citroen Jumpy that’s an award-winning model in its class. Its appeal to the campervan enthusiast is obvious, with the conversion space offered being complemented by the reported driving comfort and great fuel efficiency.
