Description

Meet Bessie, she's a Bessacarr E350, a fantastic 2 berth compact touring camper with a rear kitchen and a shower and toilet cubicle. This iconic campervan is built on the excellent Fiat Ducato chassis and is powered by a 1929 cc diesel engine that is economical to drive.

As Aunt Bessie's strapline goes 'You know you're home', our Bessie is definitely designed to be a comfortable home away from home! While she's a bit of an old girl, certainly not state of the art and perhaps a bit dated, she oozes comfort and reliability. She's a purpose built motorhome so has a lot of features that many campervans do not have such as hot and cold water (which will work on gas or mains hook up) and a shower and toilet cubicle with wash basin. She also not only has a gas stove but a separate grill and oven along with a sink with draining board with both hot and cold water. Not forgetting a fridge with a tiny freezer compartment - so no excuses not to rustle up a nice meal (although you're on holiday so relax and eat out!).

With a passenger seat that swivels round into the living space she can seat 5 people and she also has an additional two seat belts in the back so while she sleeps 2, possibly 2 plus a child, we also hire an air awning if there's 4 of you or perhaps you have your own tent you could take.

The bed arrangement is flexible and can either be 2 small singles or one large double so if it's a couple of friends who are going away you have the options of 2 singles or if taking the family then the adults could sleep in the awning and children in the van.

You can enter the living area from the front cab easily meaning if it's rainy there's no need to step a foot outside or there is a side sliding door. In the seating area there's two options of tables, a small and larger table with two different positions. Bessie has quite a bit of storage, a tv, mains hook up, a tow bar, fly nets on the windows, black out blinds and a wind out Fiamma awning. There is also a Propex 2000 Gas heater to keep you warm and toasty when you're feeling cold.

Bessie packs a lot of punch as she is compact in size meaning she's easy to maneuver on small winding roads or if you're a bit nervous of driving a big vehicle but she has a lot of facilities. She however has the normal age related marks so if you're looking for A1 condition then she's not for you but if you're looking for something that is clean, tidy, you can stand up comfortably in, has all the amenities and is reliable and comfortable then she's your girl.

We took Bessie on a trip up through Northumberland and the Highlands and loved it! No Bessie isn’t super modern but she’s really well looked after, super comfortable, easy to drive and has everything we needed, particularly when a lot of facilities aren’t fully open yet. Chrissy and Danny were both lovely and great to deal with - highly recommended! September 2020
Thinking of buying a motorhome I wanted to rent one to try it out. Chrissy welcomed me when I arrived and took me on a tour of 'Bessie'. The motorhome wa spotlessly clean and ready for me. I drove off happily and was able to familiarise myself on country roads before travelling on the main roads. After arriving at the campsite I needed to contact Danny on some minor point, he proved very helpful. I had an adventure helped by a lovely couple. September 2020
Bessie is a fantastic little camper van and despite her age she is very well catered for in terms of facilities. We went to Anglesey and snowden and although she takes her time she got us there and back safely. We would definitely take her out again. September 2020
Response from Chrissy & Danny Thanks Nik for leaving a review and really pleased you had a great time away in Bessie. Also thank you for looking after her.
Excellent Fun - a great little wagon which suited me 6'4" and my wife very well and we thoroughly enjoyed our week's roadtrip. Chrissy is very helpful and talked us through everything we needed to know about Bessie. Defintely recommend. August 2020
We really enjoyed our holiday In Bessie, she was lovely middle aged motorhome, she had everything we needed, very clean & tidy. She was a joy to drive & performed very well with the mountain roads around Snowdon, her owners were a joy to deal with, very pleasant & the hiring experience was very straightforward, highly recommended, give her a try. P&A August 2020
