We fit a very special easy to use marine compressor fridge 1.4 cu.ft (40 ltrs). 12v only, tilt tolerant to 300! ordinary fridges have to be virtually level in order to function properly, this is not always possible especially when parked while you are out walking etc. thermostatically controlled; simply switch on at the beginning of the holiday and switch off at the end. The fridge will run for approximately two days and nights from the auxiliary battery which is charged automatically when motoring or on the standard mains hook-up. Four seats when travelling all forward facing with three-point inertia reel restraints with Web locks. Rear upholstery in similar style to cab seats for that 'original' car look. Rotating front seats. Two single beds 6'l" x 2'O" or one double bed 6'l" x 4'O".

The following is an extract from a road test (January 2000) on the Galaxy Millennium carried out by Peter Vaughan for Which Motorcaravan. (Reprints of complete test available from Warners, Tel; 01778 391182)

"Autobahn excellence. We are cruising along an empty section of motorway. The Porsche ahead is the only other vehicle in sight and he's travelling at a similar speed. Inside the Ford Galaxy the climate control is maintaining a constant 210 and my favourite CDs are playing with fabulous clarity through no less than eight speakers. I glance down at the speedo to see the needle touch 120, that's mph not kph. In no country but Germany would this be legal. In no motorcaravan but the Wheelhome would this be possible."

"Millennium on Ford Galaxy"

The "MILLENNIUM" conversion is based on the Ford Galaxy. We have chosen this vehicle for it's superlative levels of comfort, refinement, equipment and performance.

There can be no doubt the MILLENNIUM' is no ordinary Motorcaravan. At first glance you will be forgiven for thinking you are looking at the standard vehicle for with our specially made elevating roof, colour matched to the bodywork and absolutely no external vents or hatches, the MILLENNIUM' just looks like the standard vehicle and nothing like the usual Motorcaravan, and that, of course, is the whole point; it really does offer true quality car looks and characteristics, at only 6'31/2" high the 'MILLENNIUM' is easily garageable, or if you require an even lower overall height choose our low-profile roof which is under 6' high. But when the roof is raised you have an extremely comfortable and practical two berth Motorcaravan, and the looks and admiration of other campers in their conventional motorcaravans!

The Galaxy excels as a towing vehicle - powerful, heavy (nearly two tons) and a short rear over-hang equals exceptional stability.!

The Millennium has achieved Single Vehicle Approval
