The Owner Says

VW Campervan Ruby is an iconic 1974 Westfalia conversion - some say the best interior of any of the 1970’s campers. She was completely professionally restored in 2012 and has been professionally maintained. She had a brand new Volkswagen Heritage engine fitted in April 2015 and a new gearbox in 2017. In burgundy over cream livery our latest campervan is a real head turner.

Ruby is fitted with 4 inertia seatbelts - 2 on the front seats and 2 on the rear seat, plus a lap belt. She has a full width rock and roll bed that sleeps 2 adults, a side seat and a bunk in the pop-top roof that would suit 2 children or 1 adult. There are windows in the roof to enhance the experience of sleeping high!

She has a cooker, a sink with on-board water tank and a cool box to keep your wine or beer chilled. She has also got a little wardrobe and other storage space, making the most of all the nooks and crannies within the van.

Fully kitted with pots, pans, cutlery and crockery Ruby is ready to go. We are in the process of getting professional photos taken for Ruby but have uploaded what we have in the meantime so that you can see what she looks like.

Fantastic Family Fun

We booked Ruby at short order, following the cancellation of our holiday. The handover was easy, the van was well prepared and ready to go. We had a fantastic trouble free couple of days, taking in a run through the Lincolshire Wolds to the coast, and then a great day over in the Peak District. Being able to stop when we wanted to brew up never stopped being a novelty, and the slower pace of driving made for a relaxing break for all - driver and passengers. We would certainly recommend this to any other family looking for a different family holiday

Wow thanks Russell. It's feedback like this that make it all worthwhile. We love our customers :)

Great campervan

We have hired Vera for a couple of days to visit Isle of Skye. There were 4 adults sleeping in Vera. The van was brilliant. Plenty of space and lots of storage. The owner's of Vera - Debbie and Colin were very approachable and explained everything before the trip. They both have been so kind. I would highly recommend Vera as it's been one of the best experience in my life. Definitely , we will be back. Thanks a million Debbie and Colin.

Thanks for the lovely review Mariusz :)


Me and my friend hired Vera for about a week to go and see Scotland. Vera is the perfect van, super comfortable, and very easy to drive. We had a few hiccups and Debbie and Colin who own the van we're so supportive. They made sure we had a wonderful time and I can't thank them enough.

Excellent time and quality service

I Hired Vera for a long weekend. The introduction and welcome were excellent. All the ultra modern appliances and facilities explained to me brilliantly on what is a perfect vehicle for an excursion. The lower double bed easily disassembled to produce seating for daytime use and vice versa for nighttime with an equally spacious bed in the vans extended canopy. All requirements supplied for up to 4 people this is a hassle free trip. Great communication all through the booking and hire process I highly recommend. Thankyou for a great trip
