K24 variant of the Elysion.

Was imported by a UK company, and converted to a camper. Rock ‘n’ Roll bed, gas hob, sink and fridge. Drives like a car, very rare on the road, and love it.

Many road trips to date, Cornwall, Devon, Wales. Favourite so far, the North Coast 500. Fantastic roads, wonderful beaches and would recommend to anyone who’s into this.


Engine is standard + 5 bhp since adding the Mugen grill.

Maintenance is not bad at all. Some of parts are shared with the Accord.

Had a major service last year, and parts like the air filter and pollen filter were ordered from Japan by Rus at HondR, and he did all the work.

He has owned the V6 version himself, so not a lot he doesn’t know about them.

I have always like these and did consider one when I bought our Elgrand. You didn't fancy the J30 or J35 engine versions?

The K24 is the most common to convert, not sure if the four wheel drive versions present any problems.

A V6 would be great, but would need to tie down the cutlery for the traffic light Grand Prix.

160 odd bhp still pulls it nicely, and cruises well at motorway speeds.
