    Here's a Google translation of the article - rough but can pick out the points:
    Pössl produced in Capron plant
    Camper for the price of 30,000 euros
    From 2016 Pössl wants to build a super cheap camper. The van will be produced in Capron plant in Saxony . A corresponding cooperation agreement has been signed .

    Pössl will build a new van series with the target price of 30,000 euros from 2016 . The base vehicle of the Fiat Ducato Citroën Jumper or to serve . However, it is not yet decided whether the budget will run as a new camper Pössl series or a new brand name .


    Neustadt in Sachsen is Pössl new production site
    The recreational vehicle production Capron , which belongs to Erwin Hymer Group concluded it with Pössel a cooperation agreement . From model year 2016 builds Capron for the van - brand the camper at a competitive price .

    The work so far in Neustadt manufactures the vehicles of the brands Carado and Sunlight . Daniel Rogalski , CEO of Capron : " With this cooperation, we have built the foundation to expand our capacity in Neustadt . "

    Pössl aims to expand market position
    The cooperation with Capron complements the long-standing successful cooperation between Pössl and Dethleffs , also members of the Erwin Hymer Group . Yearly production site in Isny be built around the 3000 van on Dethleffs . The local production will continue as before .

    Markus Wahl , Managing Director of Pössl Leisure and Sport GmbH , is convinced: " With the produced at Capron in Neustadt van we are able to further expand our market position . " Pössl is with his camper van market leader in Europe .

    Have been wondering why nobody produces a well built budget van conversion so perhaps this may be it?! Current offerings are fine as summer/day/starter vans but lack insulation, storage & poorly designed for more than short trips. If Globecar insulate it well, simple but rufty tufty upholstery, cupboards, flooring etc, essential facilities & decent useable layout (like in their currrent vans) then should be a bestseller at that price point(y)
    Should shake up the van conversion market & it's pricing anyway:)
