Let's head back to the 80's...

Imagine 2 sisters: Sara, a frizzy haired brunette & Jill, a bowl-haircut blonde. During childhood holidays in Scotland, they’d listen avidly to stories about Harold the Hedgehog, an adventurous little fellow who snuffled along… “snuffle snuffle, snuffle snuffle…” They drank hot milk with sugar in, they snuggled up with their mum in their caravan, surrounded by midges and Loch Lomond and family time and couldn’t wait to hear what he got up to next.

Harold the Hedgehog’s creator and the girls’ dad, John, always intended to write a 'Harold the Hedgehog' book, but life happened, time passed and the sisters grew. Sara discovered hair straighteners and gave up trying to embrace curls. Jill threw out the bowl. They eventually had families of their own and drifted from their 80’s holiday roots and headed further afield, perhaps forgetting the magic of a UK holiday for a while…

30 years later, The Happy Campervan Company was born. THCC is more than a little business; it’s a re-connection to, and a reclaiming of, the childhood holidays the sisters remember so happily. It's a forging of a love for here as well as there.

Harold is THCC's second offering and he's equally as wonderful as the first, Stan the Van (if not better!)

Harold is a much loved long wheel base VW T5 Transporter with parking sensors and blue tooth enabled audio system.
The original rock 'n' roll bed has been replaced by a sociable and space-offering L shaped seating area that quickly and easily becomes a double bed.
His pop-top roof gives extra height or a second/alternative sleeping area.
He boasts a 43L fridge (which can be powered by gas if electric isn’t an option), a tap and sink, an oven and a 3 ring gas hob!
His solar panel allows power for wild camping or the option of a (cheaper) non-electric campsite spot.
He has a fitted diesel heater for colder nights and and we also supply an electric heater to use if you’re hooked up (reducing expense).
A Fiamma F35 Pro fitted canopy offers shade on glorious Summer days.
THCC love storage space and Harold is no exception!
He is, of course, dog friendly!
Pots, pans, plates, tumblers, mugs and cooking equipment are supplied as standard.
He's fitted with a projector and projector screen for cosy van evenings.
He's also fitted with fairy lights... because everything's better with fairy lights!

Fully comprehensive insurance is included. Book, pack and go…!

Whether you're a seasoned campervan'er, or this is your first time, our comprehensive user guide will let you know what to expect and is on hand to help you out along the way. We've also added a full inventory list so you only need pack what's necessary! The road ahead awaits...

Harold the Van is a nod to John - all round legend and author that never was. Sara is delighted to be sharing him with you, can't wait to meet you and hopes you’ll make memories to treasure.

She's trying to embrace curls again too..!

NB: Harold is available to be collected any day of the week until the start of September 2022, when collection will be on Saturday/Sunday only (sorry!)
