Description

This is our professionally converted Volkswagen Transporter camper van.
Arthur was our first camper and began our love of the freedom campervans provide.

Arthur is a great looking camper with 20” colour coded alloy wheels, tow-bar, pop-up roof and if you wish we can also hire you a bike rack for £10.00 which we will fit securely on the rear. The ICE screen on the dashboard is capable of showing streamed movies whilst also being the sat nav, stereo and Bluetooth hands-free.

There are five seatbelts in Arthur, room for three people in the front and two in the rear, all with fitted three-point seatbelts. Unfortunately, Isofix is not featured on any of our campers.

There is a fold down sofa which converts to a double bed and once the roof is popped up there is enough headroom for even the tallest person to stand up in the living area comfortably, I am 6ft 6 so can personally vouch for this. Within the pop-up roof is an additional bed large enough to sleep one adult or two children. Should this not be enough sleeping accommodation for you we can also provide a 2-man tent at a cost of £20.00, we also provide a set of outside furniture so you can enjoy the outdoors.

There are blackout blinds fitted on all windows to provide you with extra privacy at night and we have added a thermostatic night heater so this vehicle can be used all year round without the worry of feeling the cold.

The kitchen area is fitted with a 12v fridge freezer, sink with running water and a two-burner gas hob. We have fitted out the kitchen with all pots and pans, crockery, and cutlery you will need for up to 4 people.

The leisure battery has a meter so you can keep an eye on the charge level but on normal usage you can expect 3 days life from the battery. The battery is charged up when the engine is running so if you are touring/ sight-seeing you have no need to worry about the battery going flat. If you are not using Arthur to travel, we advise you to run the engine to save you from draining the battery completely every few days.
In addition to the separate leisure battery we have mains hook up which can be used to run the low energy LED lighting, USB sockets and 230v points. We provide a hook-up lead for you.
There are Solar panels so you can wild camp without the worry running out of power with a 300w inverter.
This camper van is very economical, easy to drive and is great fun whether you are travelling through cities or out in the countryside. Arthur is also ideal for use on race days as we have a tow bar fitted and can provide a stick-on number plate for your trailer.

Our insurance covers drivers over 23 years old with a full UK driving licence which has been held for at least 2 full years. Also licence permitting it also covers you to tow a trailer, please let me know in advance if you wish to do this. We include UK and breakdown cover

A full inventory and vehicle inspection will be carried out when you collect the vehicle and when you return, any damage or missing items will be deducted from your deposit.
We ensure Arthur is clean, tidy and fresh for you upon collection so please ensure you return him in the same condition.

We do have secure off road parking for a vehicle during your time away with Arthur.
Pets will be considered, however this needs to be booked in advance with an additional fee of £50 per booking which needs to be paid on collection of the vehicle. This fee covers a professional deep clean to ensure it is spotlessly clean and ready for the next lucky campers.

This van is fully cleaned before and after all hires, to ensure that your van is COVID clean and safe we use an anti-bacterial cleaner and steamer to sanitise all surfaces. All carpets, seats and cushions will be shampooed as well, there is however an additional cleaning fee of £50 that needs be paid on collection of the camper.

I am sorry to say that due to corona virus and the camper which was booked not being available I am yet to have used any camper I was told by Darren I could change the date and to contact goboony who said that it had already been confirmed and taken so they were unable to change anything and I was to go through darren direct I have messaged but not had a reply I not very happy the way its been handled this is the 3rd time we have had to change the dates which is very disappointing but with everything closed there is little that can be done I asked for refund but told because it was booked before oct last year then I wasnt able to get a full refund this is very unfair as the reason it was cancelled back last year in March was due to the pandemic then again in October and now we are in lockdown yet again so not able to travel and no campsites are open March 2021
Had a really good trip in Arthur - it was the first time we had done something like this and given the COVID restrictions it was a great way to travel around safely. Darren, the owner of Arthur was very supportive and helpful with a number of minor issues. Very good trip! October 2020
