"The Gecko" VW Campervan was fully converted in late 2022 by Out And About Campers, West Sussex. The interior is smart and comfortable, with fold away table and front swivel seats.  It has an easy to use pop top (fully enclosed with mesh window and reading light!) plus a comfy "rock and roll" bed that is basically the rear seats folded down.  Once you add the mattress topper, this becomes a cosy and comfy sleep.  We have added some basic...

Sara and Gregor were brilliant to hire from and always responsive to messages. My daughter and I had a lovely few days in the Gecko. As it was an October hire they went the extra mile providing us a hookup cable so I could run a mini heater to take the edge off the chilly mornings. Excellent attention to detail with all the nicknacks and essentials you could need without over-filling the van, so we could still pack our bits in too. Would highly recommend saying yes to the mattress topper for extra comfort! We would absolutely hire from these guys again 👍 October 2023
We loved renting this cosy motorhome from Sara and had a great weekend away with the kids. It was very well stocked and Sara provided loads of nice little touches like a mini bottle of wine, shower gel and hand sanitiser, etc as well as all the kitchen utensils we needed. Sara was also excellent art communicating with us and was also flexible with our requests. We may well hire the Gecko from you again, Sara, thank you! July 2023
We had a wonderful weekend away in Sara's campervan with family of 4+dog. No problems. Very comfortable and easy to drive. Sara was very responsive and super helpful. Some lovely little touches that show she goes the extra mile. Highly recommend! June 2023
Very much enjoyed our trip away in The Gecko last week. Everything is well designed and clean. Sara and Gregor are really friendly and accommodating and have thought of everything you could possibly need. The beds were easy to make and very comfortable, and the van is easy to drive. We'll be back! Thank you, Lizzy June 2023
The motorhome was perfect in every way. It was immaculate and had everything provided that we needed for our trip. Thank you very much to Sara and Gregor who were fantastic and extremely welcoming. If we get the chance again, we will definitely be hiring from them. Many thanks kind Regards Maurice May 2023
