Fell in love with campervanning in 2016 after spending 10 days in a van. Absolutely loved it! When our foreign holiday was cancelled in 2020 we hired a van again and then decided to take the plunge and buy one.

Jimmy has a fridge, two ring burner, grill, sink with cold water, diesel heater and lots of storage. Basic cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery are provided (we once hired a van where no glasses or teaspoons were provided - we will make sure everything is there!!). A small fold-up BBQ can also be supplied.

Electric hook-up (EHU) for 240v. Inverter if needed when not on EHU. Leisure battery and one 12v plug.

We have just invested in a diesel heater which is lovely and toasty and you do not need EHU for this. We also have a small electric heater for when EHU available.

There is a 3/4 size rock and roll bed in the main cabin and a poptop which will sleep 2 children. My son is 5'8" and struggles up there though so I wouldn't suggest it is suitable for teenagers and above. The awning has a sleeping compartment which can accommodate 2 people (beds to be supplied by the customer) but it is not the most robust of tents so I would not advise this other than in the summer and therefore have not included in the sleeping capacity. But is good for storage and sitting in when raining.

You can plug your phone into the radio and play your music.

I love driving Jimmy. I was really nervous the first time but actually prefer driving him to driving my car.
