Description

Our Silver Machine has been faithfully carrying our family around for the last decade. As such she is well equipped for camping in the summer or even, for the hardier adventurers, in a Scottish winter.

She is a VW Transporter T32 130 TDI LWB professionally converted by Jerba Campervans. As a long wheel base (LWB) she has a bit more living and storage space without compromising easy driving. Swivel plates on both driver and front passenger seat allow both to face into the living area when parked up to provide plenty of seating and space.

The front elevating roof is fitted with a roof bed supported in the storage position by gas struts. The TUV European crash test approved French RIB seat/bed gives a 140cm wide seat moulded for a comfortable travelling position and incorporating three integral inertia seatbelts and three headrests. The seat folds simply into a flat bed of 186cm by 130cm (6ft 1 inch by 4ft 4 inches), a bit more than most VW campervans.

The kitchen has a stainless steel two burner hob with electronic ignition and a grill beneath. The sink unit has a hardwood chopping board top and Florenz microswitch tap. The fresh water tank holds 38 litres with a 7 litre per minute pump. The electric fridge is a 12 volt low ampage 51 litre compressor fridge with 4 litre freezer box.

There is a complete 12 & 230 volt power system with 2 x 60 amp hr Varta leisure batteries and a control panel with leisure & vehicle battery voltage and 3 fused switches. Full charge system via a 230 volt exterior hook up.

A Webasto Airtop 2000S diesel fired heater with a thermostatic control will ensure you keep cozy even in the coldest weather.

If you need them we can supply a Khayam Motordome Classic drive-away awning at £28 per trip and an Atera Strada DL tow bar bike rack for four bikes at £18 per trip. A proper charcoal BBQ with cooking tools is included for free.

Bedding and linen, although not towels, are available on request at no extra charge.

We are quite central, only two minutes walk from Edinburgh's Haymarket Station, so the pick up is quite easy.

It's important to note that you will need to arrange pay as you go cover for your self-drive hire from Dayinsure or Tempcover.

Cosy wee campervan, has everything you need for a break. Fully equipped, plus bike rack as a bonus. Smooth booking system, easy pick up/ drop off. Thank you Richard, for sharing silver machine with us. :) October 2020
We hired the Silver Machine for an epic trip around Scotland's North Coast - this campervan was the perfect home away from home! The highlight of the trip was opening up the boot door to endless views of Skye's coastline and distant mountains - all while still in bed with a cup of tea. We were 2 couples travelling for 5 days - it was warm, reliable and has very convenient features! The awning was also a huge help in allowing us to spread out a little bit more - highly recommend it! Richard was incredibly accommodating and flexible with pick up /drop off and very friendly! Thanks again! September 2020
The silver machine did not disappoint, it was everything we needed and more for our trip round Scotland. Richard was also very helpful and accommodating through the whole booking and hiring process. Wouldn’t hesitate to hire again. September 2020
We had the best time in Richard's incredibly well equipped and comfy camper van. Richard was so helpful and accommodating. This is our new favourite way to travel and we would definitely rent the Silver Machine again! Thanks so much Richard :) September 2020
