Vinnie (Wiggins…VW) is a Short Wheel Base T26(T5).
He has been our reliable and much loved family Camper Van for 10 years. He’s taken us on tour to the South of France, around the Outer Hebrides and many places in between.

He’s now available for you to enjoy some Vinnie Time!

** Easy Location & Logistics **
- We are in London W7, in Hanwell near Ealing so super handy to pick up and head out on the M40, M4,...

My partner and I had a wonderful weekend away in Kent with Vinny. Chris and his lovley dog Kenny gave us a quick and easy handover and responded to our questions quickly. Was nice and flexible with timings so we could get the most out of Vinny :) Van is nice and simple, with all basics you need, easy to drive, great on fuel and even some games! Thank you we'll deffo take Vinny out again x June 2024
Response from Chris Thanks Nina - so glad you enjoyed your first Vinnie trip - see you again!
Vinnie was the perfect van for our trip! Fully equipped and in great condition, comfortable for the two of us, easy to drive both on large roads and narrow lanes. Chris was very responsive throughout the booking process to answer questions, as well as during the trip to make sure we had a pleasant experience. We also greatly appreciate the flexibility he was able to provide for the trip. Highly recommended! May 2024
Response from Chris So pleased you enjoyed your weekend away with Vinnie - it was my pleasure to meet you both - Thanks!
We had a fab weekend taking Vinnie the campervan to the Peak District. Super easy to drive, comfortable, and all the amenities you could need are provided. Thorough handover by Chris on pick-up to make sure we were happy with everything. We will definitely be borrowing Vinnie again for our next trip. Thanks again Chris! April 2024
Response from Chris Hi Abi & Ollie - Thanks for the thanks! You are obviously very welcome to borrow Vinnie again.
My girlfriend and I rented Chris's campervan Vinnie for the Easter long weekend, and even before we picked up the van everything was seamless. Chris was incredibly accommodating and always very quick to respond to any questions. He was also flexible with pick-up and drop of time so that we could make the most of the weekend. On the day Chris and his beautiful dog greeted us with a warm welcome drink and provided us with thorough instructions on how to operate the campervan. Great start to the weekend! 😃 The campervan itself was excellent - clean, easy to drive and fully equipped with everything we needed for our trip, exactly like the photos. You can tell Chris has put a lot of thought and care into making it a great experience for his customers. We did bring our own audio cable to ensure we had music for the journey and I would recommend that to others as a backup as the Bluetooth would not connect for us. Overall, renting Chris' campervan was one of the best decisions we made for our Easter weekend getaways. We highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. Thank you, Chris, for making our trip truly a great experience. We can't wait to rent from you again! April 2024
Response from Chris Hi Stefano & Alicia - I appreciate your kind words, and am really pleased that Vinnie lived up to all expectations. Let me know when you'd like to plan your next trip!
