We have 2 campers available to hire, both will provide you with holidays or outings to remember for all the right reasons and are packed with retro character! MURIEL is a high spec rare US import bay window model and MARV is a water cooled conversion with more than a hint of the action hero, both ideally equipped for self drive holidays.

Muriel moved to Blighty from California, where she had lived the charmed life of a high-end camper conversion with little work to do! She is a 1978 Champagne II Riviera, a special conversion that was only made that year. Her deluxe interior, including original carpets and cordouroy cab seats, are extremely well preserved. The future may be orange, but there was clearly a lot about in 1978 as well! What wear and rust she may have had has been lovingly restored and she is now ready for action, waiting to star in your holiday adventure.


Remarkably easy to drive for a vintage vehicle, she has

a 2 hob gas cooker,

a sink,

a fridge

and ample storage in the form of wooden roller shutter wardrobes, cupboards and drawers,

with the music being provided via the original fm/am radio.

an electric hookup provides electricity for  on-site lighting and  sockets when parked at a serviced pitch (12V cigarette sockets and 3 pin plugs).

Otherwise a leisure battery provides light if needed on the move and powers the sink pump and fridge.


In addition to the driver's seat, there are 2 seats with 3 point seat belts (suitable for child seats) with the remaining 2 having lap belts: so 5 people may travel in safety.


Her sleeping arrangements are a double bed downstairs AND a double bed upstairs in the elevating roof. An optional extra for increased storage, or sleeping quarters for a toddler, is the cab hammock which is available on request, or hire an awning which also sleeps 2 people.


Muriel is a well powered van with a well-running 2 litre engine (most campers are on a 1.6 litre!). More ponies in the boot, but probably still wise to chill out (man) and mosey along at 55mph, as VW intended!


All prices are in £. If you would like to hire Muriel for one day it's £150. If you would like to extend your holiday its just £90 per day.
