Great little getaway in Sammy. A classic, rustic all-in-one campervan. Loved it. July 2024
We had a great experience with Sammy. Perfect for our journey from London to Glastonbury Festival and back - smooth running and no issues despite her age! Kenneth was a great host and helped us familiarise which didn't take long. It has everything you would need for a few days away and the leisure battery worked like a dream. A comfortable double bed with adequate blinds to give us many good nights sleep - very much needed after the foot mileage at Glasto! July 2024
My wife and I hired the campervan to go to Cornwall with our dog. Kenny was very flexible with pick up and drop off times and done a thorough explanation of how everything worked. Sammy performed brilliantly, there was plenty of space and didn’t miss a beat, we loved staying in the camper and would definitely do it again! June 2024
Everything was perfect , from picking up the camper van , Kenneth explained everything and the camper van is a dream to drive and stay in, I drove from St Albans to Lake District and Kenneth was always a phone call away if I needed anything. the van had everything I needed ✌🏼 June 2024
What a great van. We happily explored the winding back roads of Shropshire, with speed limits of 50mph, enjoying the views cos we could see over the hedges from the elevated position. The van was super clean, very comfortable and with the thermal window coverings, warm at night. We had a brilliant couple of weeks. June 2024
Kenneth was brilliant!!! Great communication, fast but comprehensive pick up, a beautiful vehicle and made the whole thing easy. Would definitely hire again! May 2024
Sammy was the perfect camper van for the first time camper van driver. The van was small enough to feel comfortable driving but had loads of space inside for two adults. Kenny was incredibly helpful, even when we were away and had questions. The flexibility on pick up and drop off really helped with the enjoyment of the entire experience. Would totally recommend Kenny and Sammy!! April 2024
Easy process from start to finish Kenny was very flexible with collecting and drop off Sammy was surprisingly spacious and comfortable with everything needed Would definitely recommend October 2023
Friendly & helpful September 2023
Absolutely perfect from initial request to handing Sammy back. Friendly communication from Kenny, a great van that drives really well and not the slightest hint of a problem for the week. September 2023
Communicating with Kenny was great and he gave us a complete intro to everything we needed to know about the van before we set off. The van was clean and had everything you needed for a weekend away. Neither myself or my boyfriend had previously driven a camper but it was easy to pick up. September 2023
Kenny was very helpful & went through all the instructions with us beforehand so there were no problems. We had a great weekend at the music festival & the campervan was great. Would definitely hire again. August 2023
We hired this last minute and Kenny was really accommodating regarding pick up and drop off times. Absolutely loved the van! It was perfect for our weekend away at a festival. It’s been very well looked after and there is plenty of space and storage inside. Would definitely recommend and hire again! August 2023
Great T25, practical and easy to drive, well laid out, everything we needed for a weekend. Kenny was super helpful explaining how everything worked and being flexible with pick up and drop-off. would rent again July 2023
Sammy was the perfect companion for our Glastonbury adventure! Kenny's excellent communication made the entire rental process smooth and hassle-free. Thank you, Kenny, for a fantastic experience! June 2023
We had a great trip in Kenny’s van. No issues with the van itself and Kenny was incredibly helpful and organised, which made the whole process very easy. Would highly recommend! June 2023
A lovely little campervan! Has all you need for a trip, cooking facilities, running water, bluetooth and a comfy bed. The owner is really easy to deal with and provides telephone numbers should there be any problems while you’re away, (there wasn’t! he obviously looks after the van). I wouldn’t hesitate to book again. May 2023
Sammy is a great retro high top camper van. We hired Sammy for a long weekend to attend a Wedding and found the height, storage and overnight comfort very satisfactory. Having never driven a camper van before we found Sammy charmingly quirky in looks and driving experience and found the high driving position delightful for visibility. Everything functioned as expected over our weekend. Kenny was very helpful around the pickup timings and explaining how to make the most of our weekend experience with Sammy. A fun experience for us.
