Superbly laid out kitchen area
Four-berth Hi-Top campervans which can seat 5 for driving – three rear seats (with 3-point belts) and two front seats. It has a superbly laid out kitchen area – the Cramer two-burner gas hob is really efficient and importantly, both sink and hob have glass tops, giving you plenty of usable worktop space. There’s also an external gas point so you can choose to add a gas BBQ for more outdoor cooking! The Cramer stainless steel sink has an electric water pump, with 50litre underfloor fresh water tanks which are insulated for cold weather use. There’s also an on-board waste water tank. We know that being able to cater really well on a campervan holiday is an important part of the whole experience. You’ll have a full range of cutlery, crockery, pans, kettle, and even a clever toaster which sits on the gas burner!
The good-sized Waeco fridge has 40litres of well-designed space, and a small compact freezer compartment. Flexibility is the key with the table layout. We provide a good sized, free-standing table with a tripod base which can be easily moved around inside the campervan, and can be used outside as well.
The main, 6′ x 4′ (1.83m x 1.22m) double bed, is a really clever design – the rear bench seat simply pulls out and flips over so you sleep on the comfy mattress on the reverse of the seat. The spacious upper double bed is easily formed by pulling out three slats which form the base (with comfy ‘thermarest’ mattresses) and it’s easy to climb up using a clever set of steps.
There is plenty of storage space around the campervan – under the main bench seat or in the deep wardrobe where you can hang clothes or just store things loose. There’s also a large roof storage locker at the front which is ideal for storing bulky items like bedding. It’s also easy to store things on the rear-facing part of the bench seat, and you can access them as easily from the rear door of the campervan or from inside.
The campervan has two batteries – a normal car battery, and a second, 110Ah leisure battery. The leisure battery powers the fridge, water pump, lights, 12v socket and the radio/CD player. It has enough ‘juice’ in it for a good 2-3 days ‘wild camping’. As soon as you’re driving, the leisure battery is re-charged by the car battery. When you’re at a campsite with a 230v supply, simply plug the hook-up power cable into the van, and you’ll have all the power you need, including being able to use the normal 240v electric socket in the campervan. All our campervans have an Wabasto hot air heater, which works whether the campervan is hooked up to the mains, or running off the leisure battery. It’s a really powerful heater and will get the campervan toasty warm in just a couple of minutes.
Finally, the campervan comes with a single electric tow bar. This gives you the flexibility to choose whether you want to use a rear-mounted bike rack, which can carry up to four bikes.
