Kerala gets the First Campervan as ‘Keravan Kerala’ gains Momentum
The Caravan Tourism project ‘Keravan Kerala’ gained further traction with Bengaluru-based start-up Campervan Camps and Holidays India Pvt Ltd rolling out its premium truck-camper, LuxeCamper, in the state on December 3.
Tourism Minister Mr. P. A. Mohamed Riyas and Transport Minister Mr. Antony Raju jointly unveiled the state’s first truck-camper at Mascot Hotel in Thiruvananthapuram.
The start-up is promoted by former cricketer Mr. Anil Kumble, musician Mr. Vijay Prakash, former Head of Sales and Marketing, Infosys, Mr. Subhash Dhar, and IT expert Mr. Phaneesh Murthy.
The new campervan will give a fresh appeal to Caravan Tourism as people prefer to travel in small groups, since the outbreak of the pandemic.
Noting that the Caravan Tourism project has become a reality within a short time, Mr. Raju said no other project has taken off so quickly like this initiative in the history of Kerala Tourism.
LuxeCamper Founder and CEO Mr. Tiger Ramesh said Kerala is the first state to come up with a comprehensive Caravan Tourism policy and it will be emulated in other parts of the country.
Tourism Director Mr. V. R. Krishna Teja; Kerala Tourism Development Corporation (KTDC) Chairman Mr. P. K. Sasi, Additional Transport Commissioner Mr. Pramoj Sankar P. S.; LuxeCamper Director Mr. Vinay Luthra; and Kerala Travel Mart Society President (KTM) Mr. Baby Mathew were also present.
LuxeCamper can accommodate four travellers along with the driver in the main cabin. The truck-camper has a sleeping area for two people in a compact space along with an optional tent that can be used for creating additional sleeping space.
