Meet the Campervans
The campervans for hire include the classic 1970s Volkswagen Type 2 van,
originally converted to camper vans back then and lovingly renovated inside
and out by their dedicated team. What does that mean? It means you get the
iconic Summer Of Love experience with the subtlety of modern convenience.
They want to make your holiday run as smoothly as their campers do! That's
why they've fitted electronic ignition, and a catalytic converter to keep
your carbon footprint down. In addition to the usual FM radio/CD player
combination, in some of the vans they've also fitted an FM transmitter to
hook your MP3 player up to the stereo, so your iPod, phone or whatever can
play through the van's own speakers.
The vans each come with a cool box or fridge that runs from the leisure
battery when you're on the move, the same as all the other electrical
accessories and anything plugged into the sockets. That means the vehicle's
own battery is never used for the lights, mod cons and other bits and
pieces. The leisure battery charges when you're on the move, and can plug
into a campsite's electrical hook-up to keep it charged overnight as well.
You'll be lovely and warm with the independent heating system in the van.
For cooking, you've got a small gas hob and a grill. They supply crockery,
cutlery, utensils, tea towels and other pots and pans.
The rental campers can sleep four people - two in the rear rock and roll
double bed (it converts quickly and painlessly into a bed) and two in the
beds or hammocks up top in the pop-top roof. Of course, since the van can
seat five, there's no reason you can't use the awning provided to sleep
someone in a popup tent just outside the van...you can draw straws every
night to see who gets to rough it.
The flat rates they quote to hire one of their camper vans include the
