Description

As you can see, Rebel Rebel has been lovingly converted and is a real passion of ours. From her retro wheels to the Bowie inspired leather interior and artwork. This is just not a regular hire van, its part of our family. Because we have used her regularly, we ensure she has all the necessary luxuries to guarantee you have a great long weekend or adventurous road trip holiday.

The conversion:
Rebel Rebel is a professionally converted 2016 Volkswagen Transporter T6 (T28) Short Wheel Base (SWB). We purchased her as a premium conversion (by local firm Cambridge Campervans). It's been a camper for four years and prior to that it was a hire panel van for two years. Rebel Rebel is not perfect (with a few blemishes), however she is in very good condition and better than most one to two year old pro hire conversions I have seen. Everything works and is repaired when required. When we purchased her, she came with a (Hi Lo) pop-top roof, sliding RIB bed, we have added enhancements since, such as a red Napa leather interior, lowered suspension, diesel heater, 18" steely wheels for that classic look.

Who would it suit:
As a couple you have loads of room and, if you are well organised, it's great for a family of 4. We’ve been on adventures as a couple and as a family in REBEL REBEL around the UK including the NC500 (Scottish Highlands), regular trips to Northumberland, Norfolk and The West Country. She is the perfect camper to cruise the UK or have a long weekend away.

Sleeping:
She comfortably sleeps four people with two in the pop top roof and two in the main living area. The pop top roof area is completely ventilated and you’re ensured a good nights sleep as it is blackout (so perfect for children). The living area has blackout curtains to ensure privacy and a good night sleep as well. It has a diesel heater so it can be used through winter / autumn, we have been warm even when we have woken up to a morning frost.

Living:
You can create a larger living area by raising the sleeping space up (to give you extra head room) and spinning double front seat round, she also has a folding table you can eat at or play cards. Rebel Rebel includes full electrics that can be connected up to the campsite hook-up points, however this is not necessary for an overnight stay as there is a leisure battery that will run the illumination, fridge and 2 USB charge points. There is a 3 pin plug for when it’s connected to campsite hook-up.

Eating:
The kitchen is well equipped with double gas rings, sink with 46L fresh water tank. When renting the campervan out we will include crockery, cutlery, pans and cooking utensils. There is an excellent fridge and larder storage.

Traveling:
When the living area is converted for travelling she completely safe as the RIB bed when in seated configurations can take two children with ISO Fix kids seats right up to full grown adults using the three point safety belts. The rear RIB seat has been properly installed so therefore has all the correct crash protection and is fully tied into the chassis.

Other features:
Rebel Rebel includes a wind-out Fiamma awning to protect you from the elements and provides shade when sunny. She will come with two camping chairs and a camping table. To ensure full comfort, the van can be levelled using the supplied ramps, and for softer ground there are traction plates for the front drive wheels when damp. Rebel Rebel can also be supplied with an optional bike rack that will take three bikes. This is available upon request.

The van:
The van has a full VW service history and no expense has been spared. at the time of writing this she has one done 70,000 miles. Rebel Rebel is equipped with Volkswagen‘s latest Euro 6 Diesel engine that will not incur any clean air taxes that are found in London and Manchester. She has Cruise Control, Air Conditioning (not all conversions have this) and many other car-like features. Even though she is lowered, she is not a hot-rod This has been done for looks and to make it easier to get into carparks with 2m head clearance. It's compact design means it can squeeze into a regular parking space. As mentioned she is not a racer but a cruiser, however we have driven her all over the highlands of Scotland and due to the torque of its diesel engine she did not struggled up mountains (we took her up the highest road in the UK). Rebel Rebel will comfortably cruise a long at the speed limit. She is the perfect camper for exploring the UK.

Location:
We live 5 miles north of Cambridge and it's very handy for exploring Norfolk and Suffolk or if you are local'ish you can start your journey here (i.e. doing the NC500). You can park your car at our house as we have off road parking. We maybe able to pick you up from Cambridge North Trian Station, please ask.

The technical stuff:
If you rent from us we will give you a full induction on how it all works and we will be available 24hrs a day on the phone to give advice or answer your questions. We want to take the stress out of hiring Rebel Rebel so we are also planning a YouTube channel with simple videos for you to follow, hopefully these will be complete soon.

Cleaning:
Reblel Rebel will be getting a full spring clean between trips, making sure all areas are disinfected and all is in working order. You can avoid a cleaning fee by returning the van tidy and clean on the inside, to help with this we will supply a simple cleaning kit (including washing liquid, dishcloth and surface wipes)

Hopefully speak to you soon,
Andrea and Ben
