Everything you see, with the exception of the pop-top, LPG tank and bed, has been either fitted or hand crafted by ourselves.

Ruby can sleep up to four people and seat five. Her rear seats come with iso-fix and have been fully crash tested, so you can be safe in the knowledge that car seats will fit correctly. The double passenger seat is on a swivel base to rotate fully to face the rear seats. This allows for the perfect seating arrangement for everyone to sit together around the fold away table.

The spacious cab can seat 3 people (double passenger seat plus driver) and comes with air conditioning. The double passenger seat has further storage underneath, perfect for storing jackets, bags or just extra snacks! You can connect your mobile to the stereo and use your map of choice through the Android Auto or Apple Car Play options.

She comes fully equipped with everything you need for your own adventures, including a kitchen stocked with all pots, pans, utensils and crockery. The hob is powered by LPG gas and we have a Dometic fridge with a small freezer compartment, with plenty of space for a Cornetto or four! When the sun is hiding, there is a diesel heater ready and waiting which will warm the van up quickly. The heater control has a thermostat and a timer setting, allowing you to have the van warm in advance of returning from a long walk or to keep it toasty over night.

Ruby has two solar panels on her roof in addition to a 240v hook up. The leisure battery, when fully charged, will provide ample power. The battery will also charge whilst the van is being driven. Along with the hook up, we also have an inverter which will provide 240v from the leisure battery directly allowing for small appliances, such as a laptop, to be charged off grid. We have also fitted several USB points throughout the van (including one in the pop top with a reading light) to allow for the charging of phones and cameras.

Both beds come with memory foam mattresses and we will also happily provide bed linen (mattress protectors, duvet, pillows and bedsheets) although you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer. Her barn doors open fully to allow you to take in the views from your bed (and snap the all important Instagram photo!).

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!

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!
