Mabel is a Brazilian Type 2 VW Campervan. Finished in ivory over white Mabel wears her special ‘chrome pack’, with pride. You’ll find people coming over to have a closer look at when parked up and waving to you on the road.

She has a water-cooled engine so you get the best of both worlds - the authenticity or an original VW bay with the reliability of a modern vehicle. Mabel is ideal for either couples or families looking for adventure.

Mabel has seating for 5, and the rear seat belt set up comprises of two 3 point seat belts and one lap belt.

Please let me show you around!

Inside, she boasts a roomy feel with a pop up roof, which accommodates a cool platform bed which is ideal for children and teenagers - so long as 80 kg's is not exceeded! The seats below fold down to become another double bed.

There is a removable table which seats four comfortably for family meals.

Kitchen facilities include a sink with running water and a gas hob, grill and oven. Utensils, crockery and equipment are provided, so there’s no reason why you can’t cook yourself a treat. ‘Pass the Pigs’ and ‘Uno’ are in the Camper for you to enjoy, which will give hours of fun for all the family.

Seatbelts for four people are fitted. 3 x 3 point harness and 1 x 4 point harness in rear for extra safety. Most baby and child seats are compatible.

After a summer’s day out exploring you can return back to Mabel and enjoy the rest of the evening around the fold out table and four chairs provided.

In addition the following items are provided:

• A bike rack for 4 bikes
• Awning
• Portable BBQ
