Brida is a 2005 Mercedes 311 long wheel base Sprinter van. It has a 2.1 litre turbo diesel engine and 5 speed gear box. Plenty of power from the engine and economy too. Though long and spacious, the van can be driven on a standard car license being under 3.5 ton.

The van began its life as a 'Snap On' van, selling high quality american hand tools for the motortrade around East Anglia. When we purchased the van a lovely guy had already used the best insulation to line the walls and had clad the interior with tongue and groove pine, so we basically had a blank canvas when we began our conversion.

We made Brida for our family, we wanted a comfortable van able to go off grid and to get to campsites/piches without any hook up. We hand built the interior of the van to suit our needs, a 2 adults and 3 children family. We wanted a van that is:
Comfortable for the children on a long drive
Warm (with the help of a heater) and well insulated
A woody feel
Fixed beds, no setting up when we arrive somewhere!
Capable cooking facilities
Functional in all weather and all seasons
Solar energy to run our fridge and laptop without need for hook up
All seating with 3 point seat belts

We have gone on many advetures, from Cornwall to Northumberland, little festivals and visiting friends. It has been well used but well loved.
Also Brida has gone onto NC500 a couple of times now!

1. Renting our campervan is a way of looking after it, in order for us to function and to keep our prices fair we need honesty and trust from you 'the adventurer'. It is paramount that you look after Brida, treat her as your own, check her everyday, report immediately any issues. So when you are on your travels: don't smoke inside the vehicle, ever leave the hob unattended, drive too fast, drive under the influence of any drugs or alcohol or ever turn on the hob to try and heat the van (risk of carbon monoxide poisoning)

2. We aim to supply you with everything you need for your adventure, however under little hands or big hands things get broken, knocked and lost. We ask that you replace anything that gets broken or lost with like for like or you tell us upon your return and between us we can decide a fair solution. We emphasise that trust between you and us is a priority

3. Before your return: Please empty and clean out the toilet waste container correctly before returning the vehicle. Make sure all is clean and tidy so we can check it all together really easy and fast. Make sure fuel is full.


  • Pickup Time: 3:00 PM
  • Return Time: 11:00 AM

The camper van met all the needs for myself and my 2 daughters (8&10). It has everything you need for days away. Drives really well and warm and v comfortable. We all loved our time exploring the Norfolk coast. Highly recommend. August 2021
This was our first time hiring a campervan and it was AMAZING. Ana and her partner have thought of every little detail, and finished it beautifully. It has everything you could possibly need - from electrics, to storage, cooking equipment and comfort. It was much admired at the campsites we visited. We slept really well on the huge bed and our baby was very happy too. Ana was also lovely to communicate with, so we will definitely be hiring it again and recommending to all our friends. Highly recommend : ) August 2021
We spent 2 weeks in Brida, doing the NC500 in Scotland, with ourselves and 3 children. Brida drives superbly, is mechanically sound and pulls like a train. Brida excelled on all types of road, from motorway, dual carriageway, to rural single track with steep gradients. We had all sorts of weather and none of it posed any problem for Brida. Everything we needed was included and there was plenty of space for 2 weeks worth of clothes, wetsuits and footwear. Had an extremely comfortable 2 weeks and an amazing adventure! Ana and Dan are extremely lovely people and would definitely hire from them again. August 2021
We used this lovely camper recently to do a weekend trip to Shropshire. Staying in a field rather than a campsite. The van drove very well and a testament to being well looked after. We had chosen Brida as she had a full size bed and was also home built from wood giving a lovely cosy feel. All the needed amenities were there and gave us a very restful and comfortable stay. Ana and Dan where great at communication and lovely people to deal with. Making Pick-up and Return easy. Overall great van and great people to hire from. June 2021
