Meet Harry!

With his number plate being HV66RRY, his name was chosen by the DVLA. He is in the heart of London, a stones throw from Waterloo Station.

Harry is a late 2016 registration Euro 6/ULEZ compliant Renault Trafic. I got him in late 2019 and the conversion is ongoing. He is designed with climbing, cycling and surfing in mind which means there is a huge amount of storage for gear and doesn't need external electrical power. He's always looking for ways to better himself and hopefully your reviews will also help to find out what features could/should change!

Cooking: Harry is equipped with all the basic kitchen utensils, a saucepan, sauté pan cutlery and crockery. The kitchen unit is permanent and feature two gas hobs and a sink with running water fed by an electric pump. The water tanks are big. Harry can carry 40L of fresh water and 10L of waste. There is also a roof vent with a bidirectional fan.

Sleeping: The bed is a 'rock n' roll' type bed. It is 113cm wide and sleeps two relatively comfortably. The mattress is made of memory foam.

Storage: Under the bed there is a huge open storage compartment as well as shelving to the side of the bed.

Heating: The cab of the van is heated whilst driving by the normal van heater. The camping side of the van is heated by a room-sealed Propex HS2000 LPG heater. This means the van heats the internal van air but burns air from outside ensuring safety.

Electricity: Harry has buckets of power! On the roof-rack there is a 280W house solar panel feeding a 100Ah lithium ion battery. The panel is so overpowered that it charges the battery fully even on a cloudy day. This means that whatever the weather, the battery never goes flat! There is a 12v-240v 500W inverter too so you can plug in normal house appliances rated up to 500w. There is also plenty of lighting.

Safety: Harry is equipped with a gas alarm for LPG, a CO alarm and a fire extinguisher. The 6kg LPG tank is sealed in it's own cabinet with a drop-vent. The gas supply should always be turned-off before driving.

Bikes: Harry has a rear mounted bike rack that can carry 2 bikes.

I have also included a solar-shower bag, shower curtain and rail in case you decide to go off the beaten track!

I hope you enjoy your trip with harry as much as I do!

I'm sure you'll appreciate that a lot of time and money is spent on these conversions so there are some basic rules.

Harry must come back relatively clean and tidy as much as is possible. I have included household cleaning products for the kitchen and a dustpan and brush. There will be a £40 cleaning charge if the van is returned in a way that could have been cleaned by the hirer.

Any damage to the inside woodwork or the outside bodywork, mirrors, tyres or bumpers will be charged to the user depending on the cost of the repair. Your deposit will be returned after completion of the work if this is necessary.

Please bring back the van with the amount of fuel left in the van at the start of the journey. If any fuel is missing it will be charged to the hirer. This also means that if there is more fuel than the start, I will give you back some money!

Linen is included and the cost of laundry will not be charged.

Harry is like a big slow car - Be gentle with the clutch, accelerator and transmission. These components are expensive and have been replaced so they are new at the time of hire - they should have plenty of life left in them if you are considerate. This also means you will waste less fuel and resources in repairs down the line, leading to greener holidays.

On a good note, there will be a notepad included for your suggestions! If you think changes could be made for a more ergonomic experience, write them down and they'll be implemented for future holidays. If you need to buy something that the van needs, keep the receipt and I'll pay for it in the end if its under £20. Anything over this price, call me; I'm always available.
