Meet Benny from Balen 😉 our brand new Benimar Cocoon Camper.
After years of tent camping with our kids, we are very happy with our luxurious and comfortable upgrade and so now we would like to share our happiness and our glamping car with you. Outdoor living remains the basis for us when we are on holiday and atmosphere and cosiness are also extremely important to us, which is why you can also count on adapted equipment that will ensure that our mobile home will immediately be a cozy and well-equipped base for you. to be.
Since we love the outdoors and good food 😉, we have invested in stylish household goods & practical and comfortable outdoor furniture to have a nice dinner together. We have provided a beautiful large outdoor mat, a cozy oval table, a multifunctional Cadac gas bbq, 2 lovely relaxing chairs, 2 other adjustable chairs, a hammock that can be attached somewhere to sturdy trees, an extra side panel for the awning to protect yourself from the wind. can sit, cozy lights to be able to sit outside in the evenings, (outdoor) games such as Kubb, yahtzee, cards… in short, everything to enjoy each other's company and that pure nature.
Benny's inside is classic, but beautiful and very neat. There is a kitchen corner with a large automatic refrigerator (freezer & bottle drawer provided), a 3-burner gas fire, a Nespresso coffee machine, practical household utensils and cooking pots, and here too there is cozy lighting and attention to atmospheric details. The driver's seats can be integrated into the seating area so that you can all sit comfortably around the table – even indoors – or even watch TV/DVD (because that is also present to fill up rainy days). We also have some nice reading material on board and handy travel books that can provide some extra inspiration.
For a wonderful and well-deserved night's sleep, there are 2 separate beds at the back (with extremely practical storage space underneath), which can also be converted into 1 gigantic sleeping surface. We love that when we only travel as a couple. But in the living area, a comfortable double bed also drops electrically from the ceiling, so sleeping with four is absolutely no problem. Bed linen and towels (and kitchen linen) can also be provided for a small extra cost (8€ pp).
Our sanitary facilities are also excellent: there is a spacious shower and a separate toilet with sink and 1 liter of toilet product is provided as standard. You can also count on practical storage space in the bathroom, so that all necessary items are within reach.
All the windows have blackout screens and mosquito nets, so that a good night's sleep is guaranteed.
And from a technical point of view, our Benny has everything and even more😉 than you can expect from a modern mobile home.
Ease of driving due to the following technical gadgets:
Powerful engine: Ford 170 hp, reversing camera, cruise control, automatic lights and wipers, air conditioning. Radio DAB+ with USB connection and Bluetooth connection. Diesel heating + Gas heating and hot water with automatic temperature control (gas bottle included)
LED lighting, indoor and outdoor, 5 USB connections
Electricity cable (20 m), Water hose to top up tap water
Wheel chocks, bicycle rack for 3 bicycles (max 60kg) and a very spacious garage. Thanks to this good technical equipment, it is perfectly possible to spend a few nights without external facilities, which always gives us an enormous feeling of freedom! Just bring your own clothes and toiletries, some food & drink and you can leave immediately.
Mobile homes with a B driving license are allowed on the track up to a maximum weight of 3,500 kg. Our mobile home weighs 3,150 kg in a roadworthy condition, which means that your luggage + the passengers together can amount to a MAX 350 kg, be sure to take this into account when packing, because any fines for overloading are at your own responsibility.
We will of course ensure that you receive a clear explanation with all important information before departure and a manual and a link to videos will also be available during your stay. The mobile home can be collected from my parents in Balen and there is also space there to safely park your own car during your trip (at your own risk).
Because our Mobilhome is still so new and we do not have any pets ourselves, we do not allow pets at first and smoking is also not allowed in our mobile home, thank you in advance for your understanding.
We would also like to ask you to return the mobile home cleaned in the condition it was when it was handed over, otherwise we are obliged to withhold € 100 cleaning costs from the deposit) There is a self car wash nearby at the Molsesteenweg 144 - be careful not to spray the high-pressure sprayer into the grids of the refrigerator, thanks in advance for taking good care of it.
If - despite this extensive explanation - you still have questions, don't hesitate to contact us.
Have a good trip, enjoy!
