Our campervan is latest model VW California Ocean T6.1 DSG Automatic (150hp engine). This is Volkswagen's latest factory-built campervan rather than a 3rd party conversion of a standard Transporter van. There is lots of debate over which is better but I think it is generally agreed that the finish and equipment level of VW’s California Ocean Campervan is fantastic and can accommodate a family of 4 in complete comfort (or 4 adults).

It has a heater that can run 24/7 without the engine on and enough battery power to keep you in comfort 'off-grid' for circa 4 days without running the engine to recharge or plugging into an electric hook up. It has running cold water with a sink, twin gas hob, and a good-sized fridge. It includes seating and a table for four inside and also a separate table and seating for four outside. There is a wind out awning attached to the side of the campervan. We also include in the rental, free of charge, an outside kitchen unit and a gas powered multi purpose cooking system for cooking In the great outdoors.

*!*! NEW for the Autumn/Winter season - the van is now installed with a Brandup ISOtop Mark 6 internal roof insulation. The provides all year-round warmth in the top sleeping area !*!*

It has a factory-installed sat nav system as well as Apple Carplay and Android Auto integration and a full digital dash. The van is an automatic and has parking sensors so is very easy to drive. It also has a similar sized footprint to a large car so driving and parking in and around towns is very straightforward.

Delivery and pick up is available at an additional cost.

10/10 Booking experience with Nick!! We had a 3 night hire planned, which was very easy to book and had great communication. Pickup and drop off was very easy, and there was a nice surprise when collecting. The van was faultless all weekend and came equipped with everything we needed for a family of 4. I will certainly recommend to friends & family for the future. Thanks Nick October 2021
We had a great time in Nick’s van. He was approachable and easy to contact. We will be using Nick’s van in the future hopefully for more adventures. Hannah & Rob September 2021 September 2021
Booked Belle at the last minute for a 4 night adventure over bank holiday weekend. What a dream experience! The van has everything you need and more…As a family of four with young children we overpacked (as you tend to do) but found so much space to store everything. The kids loved sleeping upstairs and we had some amazing morning views! Nick was great throughout, genuine and friendly with quick responses to any queries or questions we had. We even had a surprise chilling in the fridge for us which was very much appreciated on the first evening after getting everything set up! We will most definitely book again in the future! Thanks again 😊 September 2021
Nick has been a pleasure to deal with throughout the hiring process - helpful and informative. The campervan was great, and we’ll definitely be doing it again. July 2021
