What do you get if you cross a Yorkshire mechanic with an adventurous cyclist who has a taste for life on the road? AyUp campers of course! The guys behind this Yorkshire-based campervan and motorhome rental company are a pair of friends with a shared passion for campervanning. They have accumulated a varied fleet of vehicles which are practical rather than perfect and rented out at good-value rates. Whether you’re a couple who want a cosy camper or a family with kids and a dog in tow, there’ll be a vehicle to suit you here. Each has a different spec and inclusions but you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands. UK breakdown cover and insurance is included in the price and with a mechanic as one of the owners, these vans should be in tip-top cruising condition. The AyUp base is in West Yorkshire’s Sowerby Bridge, midway between the Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales so it’s handy for exploring either, or both. Tazos and Stephen know the area well and are happy to help with route planning and road trip ideas.
A varied fleet of campervans and motorhomes, including a W Coachbuilt T4, a Mercedez-Benz Sprinter and a well-converted Ford Transit campervan.
The Owner Says
If you need a break, why not go in comfort and rent one of our homes from home. No hotels, no packing and unpacking, just stress free holidaying.
After travelling the world extensively for many years, including driving across the continent in small hatchbacks to visit family in Italy, co-owner and cycling enthusiast Taras, caught the campervan bug late. Looking back, nostalgic memories of being a young ambitious traveller driving, sleeping and eating in a Fiat Uno across Europe may play into the passion Taras has today for campervan life. Only in 2014, he lived out of a Dodge Charger for a 4,000 mile voyage across North America, proving space and comfort can be achieved with a strong amount of ambition!
Meanwhile, mechanic, best friend and fellow co-owner Stephen, otherwise known as 'Ringo', had realised early on that using a campervan for road tripping was not only a great way to experience the world, but a passion all of its own. Being a mechanic, Stephen then spent years fixing and fitting them on the side of his regular job, before buying one of his own for holidaying at the weekend. His VW Transporter, which he stripped and custom fit himself, became his pride and joy.
To support the growing business, a 'local' emphasis which aimed to support other small businesses in the area was placed on the sourcing of parts and services. Additionally, the sourcing of employment was driven towards those who were both local and unemployed. This has been a great source of pride for AyUp Campers and an apprenticeship programme is under development. After acquiring a new garage unit in Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire, a new mechanic was employed, alongside an experienced valeter and a marketing professional.
