Description

Welcome! We, Esther, Ralph and two girls, like to go on an adventure with our bus Eddy, a Fiat Ducato DIY bus camper from 1998, an L3H3. Eddy is not the newest bus, but very solid and 100% reliable. With its 2.8 engine and 5 gears, this bus has a lot of power. It drives smoothly and easily at 120 km/h (also faster, but how much of a rush can a road tripper be?), uphill is no problem. The bus is large enough to 'live' comfortably in, but also agile enough and you can park it in a regular parking space.
We have furnished Eddy basic but functional and cozy and would like to share the road trip experience. Eddy is a bit older and he doesn't have new technology, air conditioning is driving with the window open on our bus. You don't need much for your adventure with this bus, it is fully equipped.

To cook:
The bus has a kitchenette with 2 burner stove and sink with electric tap. The kitchen contains a refrigerator that can run on 12V (while driving), 230V ('shore power'), and 'off the grid' possibly also on gas. All plates, cups, pots, pans, cutlery, washing-up bowl, tea towels, hand towels, cleaning supplies, etc. are available. Large gas bottle for cooking + separate camping gas burner for backup/outdoor use. The kitchen is also stocked with herbs, oil, tea, coffee, some dried and/or shelf-stable foods. Eddy likes to be hospitable, these can just be used and we always add to it ourselves. We can send the entire inventory list on request.

To live:
You live outside, of course. You make a cozy seat under the awning with the outdoor cloth and two nice camping chairs (a 'normal' camping chair and a relaxed butterfly chair), and you can add two wooden crates as a stool. There is also a super cozy bulb lamp cord for the awning (on electricity). What functions as a bed extender at night, is a long coffee table during the day for eating or playing games. We love multifunctional. ;-)
There is also a small bbq and a very nice hammock to use. With one suspension point on the bus, you only need to have 1 tree close by.

But you can also sit inside when the weather is not so nice. The bus has standing height and the living space of the bus is approximately 3.5 meters long. Lots of space to stay without having to be crammed together. The round seat offers space for 4/5 people and the rear-facing 2-seater sofa is also located in the 'living room'. There are games available, a radio (power and batteries), a blackboard door with chalks for your artwork, and a fly swatter for hours of entertainment. If you don't feel like the latter, there is also an insect curtain in the sliding door and back door opening. ;-) Furthermore, both translucent and blackout curtains so that you can sleep in.

To sleep:
We have 4-7 sleeping places. You can turn the round sofa into a bed in the evening. You can sleep in width: 180x150cm, or in length (extension at foot end): queen-size bed of 180x200cm. Lots of space for two, or a triple bed with a child, as is often the case with us. ;-)
We have added 2 extra beds for the children: a high bed above the round seat: 166x70cm. With anti-fall net. The second cot 170x70cm in the cabin over the front seats by means of a fold-out bottom plate + mattress. Both cots are intended exclusively for children, at least up to a body length of approximately 150 cm. If more than 2 adults (or tall teenagers) are coming, we have a nice extra tent available including two 10cm thick self-inflatable mattresses. That offers two extra sleeping places. But the tent can also be used for those who just want a little more privacy.
Both children's beds can be dismantled if not needed, giving you more space inside. We can coordinate what you want to use.

Power/Off grid:
We have always been on campsites by bus, but also a night or a few days 'off the grid' without power supply is fine. The refrigerator can therefore run on electricity as well as on 12V and gas (we have also used it as a cool box, just with cooling elements). There are two LED lights that work on 12V and hardly draw any current. Furthermore, mood lighting on batteries. Bus Eddy does not have a bathroom, if you are not on a campsite with sanitary facilities, we have a portable toilet available and a small portable shower (a water bag with a spray head which you heat up in the sun and then hang it up - lovely warm shower!).

Number of persons:
So, with the extra tent, we have 6 sleeping places, 2 of which are exclusively for children's heights.
Number of seats: 6, of which 4 with belts (2 in the front and a 2-seater bench facing backwards with three-point belts). Due to the age of the bus you can sit in the width direction of the bus while driving, we have 2 approved extra seats on the benches of the round seat. These may not contain a seat belt, so not for the little ones but only intended for the big ones and at your own risk and responsibility.

Optional, free of charge:
-2p side tent
-2 self-inflatable mattresses 10 cm thick for the tent
-Children's beds (2x) with mattresses
- Bedding: 2p duvet, 2 adult sleeping bags, 1 child sleeping bag (bring your own pillows)
-Car seat group 1-2 (toddler/toddler size)
- Booster seat (toddler/toddler, from 15kg)
-Small BBQ
-TomTom navigation
-Hammock
-Portable toilet
-Portable shower
-Small fan (230V)
-Small heating (230v)

Still good to know:

>It is an older diesel bus, remember the environmental zones to avoid a fine! Many larger cities in the Netherlands and the EU have an environmental zone. The Hague also in the center ring. We are outside there and from and to the highway you don't pass through that zone, but watch out for the signs!

>The bus contains a bicycle rack for 2 bicycles. Prefer a folding bicycle or lightweight bicycle and not put very heavy bicycles on it (absolutely no electric, for example), because the back door with the bicycle rack is jammed due to age/use. You can also transport a bicycle inside the bus.

>We do not charge cleaning costs if the bus returns neat and clean. If this is not the case, we will charge € 35. This will be deducted from the deposit.

>Rental price includes the Goboony day insurance of €19.90 pd

> Collection and return times may differ slightly in consultation, as long as there is no additional booking.

>Pets are allowed, but not on the couch/beds/chairs! Then bring a seat/sleeping place for your buddy.

>Festival in consultation means that a small-scale festival in itself is not a problem, but not the mega festivals (50,000+ visitors).

>The bus comes with a full tank of diesel and must also be returned with a full tank. The small emergency jerry can must of course also be refilled if used.

In short: whether you want to make a road trip alone or as a couple, with a few friends, with your family, it's all possible!
Take care of our beloved bus Eddy, we treat him with love and trust you will too.
