This month’s blog is about our VW T6 Campervan for hire, as at last I can report seeing a yellow orb in the sky after months of grey and that means one thing: holidays.
For the last couple of years our trusty T5 hire van did sterling service, but we decided it was time to upgrade things a bit, so it’s moved on to new owners and we have just built a replacement.
The new van is a 2018 Highline T28 102PS in bright red. It meets the latest Euro 6 environmental regulations, so no worries about being banned from any city centres. Being a Highline it has all the best features you’d expect on a decent car, such as cruise control, heated front windscreen and climate control etc along with all the functionality and kudos of a quality VW campervan converted by ourselves.
Inside we’ve chosen a modern clean look with a dual tone grey cupboard system complementing the simora seats and crash tested RIB seat (with ISOFIX fixings). This standard conversion comes with 50 litre compressor fridge, LED lighting, usb charge socket and a double burner gas and hob sink unit coupled to an integrated 23litre water tank. Taken together it’s a conversion that blends good looks with practicality.
The electrical hook-up system is able to charge the heavy duty gel leisure battery when you’re on site, so it runs all the electrics including a couple of mains sockets for those home comforts. But when wild camping the leisure battery takes on the task of running the fridge, lights and water pump, so you can be secure in the knowledge that the separate vehicle battery will remain fully charged regardless of your use of the conversion.
For a poptop roof we’ve chosen an Open Sky Reimo V Tech. This means that you can completely roll up the canvas on those blistering hot days of summer (we live in hope) using the roof as a sun shade more than anything and allowing you panoramic views whilst doing the washing up! Yet in a few seconds, the sides can be rolled down and zipped up should a sudden shower threaten.
Up in the roof itself the bed sleeps 2, with another 2 able to sleep’ downstairs’ on the RIB bed.
We’ve tried to think of everything you need on a holiday so the van comes fully kitted with crockery, cutlery, kettle, pans, cleaning materials and even salt and pepper grinders. So in theory all you need to bring is your food, some bedding and towels.
Whether you want to experience campervan life for the first time, or you just fancy a holiday where you can roam as you please, contact us and we’ll check availability for you.
We offer short breaks from Monday to Friday or Friday to Monday, as well as longer breaks from Saturday to Friday and we’ve held our rates again this year making it a great time to experience a brand new campervan.
Prices include vat, insurance, unlimited mileage and full breakdown recovery should the unthinkable happen.
For May: a short break is £360 and a long break is £550.
For June to August: a short break is £400 and a long break is £650

Our 2017 hire camper van was converted in March and currently it’s somewhere in Scotland, the week before it was in Cornwall, so it’s rapidly getting to see the UK.
