Fiona is the loveliest person I've met in a long time! Such a pleasure to meet and do business with. She's literally thought of absolutely everything you could possibly need on your rental adventure (and even baked me a very yummy birthday cake)! We've rented a few other campervans in the past but SoFi has been our favourite by far! It has a super cute African theme inspired by the Kenyan charity Fiona so passionately works with. The layout was just perfect for us and the solar power meant that we could go off grid worry free, just paying small fees at campsites to use water and waste facilities. We can't wait to rent FiBee next time!

We had a wonderful time with Barney the campervan. The owner, Mark, was great with communication before and during our trip. The van ran smoothly and contained everything we needed for our trip. The bed was also surprising comfy and the van was well insulated so we didn’t get cold at night (even though it got down to 2 degrees!). The pick up and drop off process was straight forward, Mark’s Dad was flexible with timing and talked us through everything we needed to know. We brought our own phone holder for GPS so didn’t try to use the Bluetooth functions but it was available.
I'm a little hesitant to write this review, as I want to keep Vinnie a secret, so that he will be available when I want! Vinnie took such great care of me on my trip. He's perfect size to drive - not too big and unwieldy. He's got everything you could possibly need, and his owner Will is so helpful and great to deal with. My only tip would be if you're gonna stay in him for more than a few nights you might want a topper for the bed (which are the seats folded out) as he is very hard (and I like a hard bed, but I did find him quite uncomfortable) and he's not very long or wide, so for a couple of people for more than a few nights you might find this a bit of a problem. I am 5ft2, and I found him a little short. He is noisy to drive on the motorway because of his solar panel, so this might be troublesome if you're doing long distances on motorway with him and are noise sensitive, but is great knowing you're never gonna run out of power with the solar panel. I loved having the heater to heat up the space before going to sleep in sub zero temps, likewise in the morning. I love Vinnie and would def take him out again in a heart beat. 5 stars for Vinnie and Will :)
10/10- great van from a great couple, no issues at all picking it up or dropping it off. Great communication at all times, making us feel very at ease. The van was thoroughly equipped for a great weekend, helping us to get a much needed break from London. We would 100% rent from Georgia again and couldn't recommend Lou Lou more.
We had a wonderful time with the van in Scotland. It enabled us have a great adventure, seeing lots of places and have greater flexibility for where we went which was great given the need for COVID safety. The van is very comfortable to drive for long journeys. It was also perhaps surprisingly comfortable to sleep in given that my husband is 6ft5! We did have some troubles with the lights, a combination of a circuit board issue and there being three separate switches for the lights, but we are pretty practical so we bought a plug in light and carried on. Ed was good about this and paid for our light. The van colour even blended in with the Scottish autumn colours! :-) Overall we had a great time and would do it again.
We took Sofi down to Cornwall and Dorset for a short break away and she had everything we needed to make it a great journey. Sofi was easy to drive making the long distance a pleasure. The vans heating warmed up nice a quick when we needed it and I was surprised at how comfy the bed was! Fiona and Jon were extremely helpful when showing us around the camper. Making it super easy to know how to work and operate everything with helpful notes where they are needed such as the van measurements on the sun visor. Moreover they added a couple of treats which were a great addition. When we go away again we will certainly contact Fiona and Jon again!
Our stay in SoFi for the weekend, was our first experience of staying in a camper van and will definitely not be our last. SoFi was easy to drive and Fiona had equipped it with everything you could possibly need - it felt like home from home. Jon took time to provide a comprehensive hand over of SoFi and Fiona was excellent at communicating before hand our trip, with no question too small to answer. We would definitely recommend to anyone looking to hire a camper van for their next adventure. Jackie and Tare
We absolutely loved our adventure with SoFi! Fiona and Jon were very thorough with the handover, they had made sure SoFi was in immaculate condition and stocked her and ready with everything you could possibly need. This van is very will equiped for a great adventure and the ability to be off grid was a bonus. We will definitely be hiring again!
