Meet Selma, an army van from 1986, carefully converted by ourselves into a camper for 1 to 3 people.

Selma spent most of her life safe and dry in the depot of the Dutch army. So she didn't do many miles yet. You drive a well-preserved old-timer. We did the furnishing into a camper and a thorough maintenance during the lockdown of 2021.
Everything is fresh and finished to perfection.

Selma is of the Mercedes 508D type, once built by Mercedes on behalf of the army. These vehicles are strong and their engine is durable. If you take good care of an MB508D, it will be a friend for life. With Selma you can therefore drive towards the adventure with peace of mind.
Get off the asphalt, that's what she was made for.

Selma is equipped for wild camping and off the grid living. We built it in such a way that you don't necessarily have to drive from campsite to campsite. There is room to linger where you want along the way.

Selma comes with:

1. a solar panel on the roof (175W) linked to a 200 Ah battery.
The battery charges in the sun and while driving.
That means that in principle you never have to hang from the power cable.
2. an inverter to 220V for laptops, home appliances, ...
3. top box with tables, chairs, an outdoor carpet and bbq
4. bicycle carrier for 2 bicycles (max35kg)
5. a roof rack with space for surfboards, canoe ...
6. a water and waste water tank, both of 40 liters
7. a portable toilet (port-a-potti)
8. a modest camping shower/solar shower (decathlon type)
9. a new, spacious fridge with freezer compartment
10. next to the double bed there is also a sleeping hammock. So you can put a guest or child to sleep.
11. extensive storage space in the van, so that you can organize yourself well
12. We think eating on the go is essential: Selma has a spacious kitchen, where you can cook extensively, rather than a quick camping kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with a full inventory + herbs, coffee and tea.

Our bus combines tranquility, adventure and nostalgia.
She has only just been converted, so hasn't seen much of the world yet.
Her brother Ayub has already been used as an expedition vehicle, surfer bus, mobile office, honeymoon suite and retreat. He knows Belgium, France, Spain & Morocco like the back of her hand. We can't wait to say the same about Selma.

Selma has four riding places, but for comfortable camping, 3 people is the maximum.
Note: Your grandmother's white plastic mobile home is probably faster.
Our bus reaches 85 km/h. You choose to slow down.

We wish you an unforgettable trip!

De reis met Selma is super geweest! Het begon met een volledige uitleg van al haar opties en kenmerken. Om daarna na een korte testrit zelf een avontuur te beginnen. Ze heeft ons op geen enkel moment teleurgesteld en zelf de ogen geopend voor het traag beleven van een reis. Alles wat je nodig hebt zit er in en de rest neem je zelf mee. Voor wie weinig tijd heeft of snel ergens wil geraken is dit wel geen geschikte camper. We hebben met onze dochter van 8j ( sliep in een hangmat boven de bestuurders cabine) een super vakantie gehad ! July 2022
We hebben deze camper gehuurd om naar een blues festival te gaan. Het was superleuk! De camper had alles wat we nodig hadden en was bijzonder mooi ingericht. Iedereen van ons gezelschap op het festival wou graag de camper van binnen bekijken en was vol lof! Lore en Johannes zijn superfijne mensen. Het was heel makkelijk om met hen te communiceren. We willen deze camper volgend jaar graag nog huren! September 2021
Wij hebben een geweldige week gehad met camper Selma. Bij vertrek werd er ruim de tijd genomen om de nodige uitleg te geven met als laatste een kort rijlesje door de zeer vriendelijke verhuurders. Prachtig hoe ze de bus hebben opgemaakt en omgebouwd naar camper. Alles wat je nodig hebt is voorzien in deze camper en is tip top in orde. Tegen 85km/uur de mooiste plekjes ontdekken in Noord-Frankrijk wat een zalig vakantie gevoel. Wij hebben alleen maar positieve ervaringen gehad met de verhuurders / camper.
