We purchased Ruby (VW T5.1 short wheel base) in April 2021 and since then have lovingly converted her into our cozy tiny home on wheels. She is an adventurous wee soul and has so far explored the NC500, Skye, the Cairngorms, Aberdeenshire, Edinburgh, Lothian and Angus to name a few!

Ruby has been converted to a high standard and will always be handed over to you in immaculate condition; we ask that you return her in the same condition.

She should be returned with a full tank of diesel (there are several petrol stations local to us); failure to do so will result in the cost to refill the tank being deducted from your deposit plus a £25 admin fee.

Ruby is a strictly no-smoking or vaping van. Any evidence of such will result in a £250 fine from your deposit.

We understand that accidents can happen; all we ask is that you let us know as soon as possible so that we can rectify and replace prior to our next rental.

We have set out some additional rules below to ensure that Ruby remains in tip-top condition for all our guests:

- Please use coasters provided for all drinks.
- Hot pans should not be placed on the work surfaces - please use available chopping boards.
- Do not chop directly on the work surfaces - please use available chopping boards.
- Any spillages should be mopped up immediately - cleaning products and cloths are provided.

Please treat Ruby as if she were your own and enjoy your adventures with her!


Available in the booking process, from $14.80 per day you can reduce your deposit and deductible to $150.

Ruby is THE camper van you want to rent for your road trip. Andrew and Zoe did an amazing job in converting it, and it has got all the amenities you will need. USB ports and touch-lights are a feature that made our life in the van a lot easier. The beds are comfy and the pop-out top is easy to open/close. Be reassured you won't spend much on diesel! We were surprised by how low the consumption was. Andrew and Zoe have been super easy, and accomodated our request to return the van later than the standard "checkout" time (thank you!!). We had an amazing time and i would definitely rent Ruby again. August 2022
The five star rating goes not only to the van itself, but also to Andrew & Zoë as hosts after our fantastic week out in Scotland with 'Ruby'. The van: - Very high standard and you can feelall the love and effort that's been put in to building it - Great mileage / fuel consumption for it's size - Very well equipped with all you might need - Reliable & comfortable to drive - Sleeps very comfortably The hosts: - Great communication and support throughout the trip - Flexible and service minded Can not recommend hiring this enough, it's been fantastic!
