Ron (Burgundy - due to his Blackberry paint and Mulberry interior) is our family Van, that we bought to replace our classic camper Skye when our family got too big.

We are ideally located for exploring Northumberland's Coast and Castle, or Hadrians Wall, the Lake District, Edinburgh or even further afield. Just 15 minuts from Newcastle Airport, and 40 minutes from North Shields Ferry terminal for those coming from or going to Europe.

Ron is a VW Kombi Van (SWB) that has had a few modifications to allow us to go on adventures.

3 Birth: He has a full width double in the rear, and you can use our child's bunk in the front, so is ideally suited for couples or small families.

5 birth+: If there are more of you then you can also hire our awning (at an additional £75 per hire) which attaches and has two bedrooms and a large living area. See last picture with it attached to our old van Skye : (

Ron's twin sliding doors make access in and out simple, no matter where you are parked or if you have the awning attached. He is trimmed in leather, with heated front seats to keep you warm on the coldest of morning drives.

There are two comfy 'captain's' chair up front that swivel to face the rear seats when parked up, with a small table if needed.

Ron has a leisure battery that can run things off USB sockets and cigarette lighters when in the wilds, or if you have an electric hook up at a campsite you can make use of the 3 pins sockets too.

For cooking there is a small portable gas burner for brews, and simple hot water dishes (pasta etc), and a gas BBQ too.

In the rear are three seats, two of which have isofix. Two of the seats drop down to make a 3/4 width double or you can remove the third altogether and have the full width. He has blackout curtains for a great nights sleep.

Ron is easy to drive and park, being Short Wheel Base (SWB) he fits in standard parking bays, and has a 6 speed manual gearbox and a 140bhp diesel engine. Cruise control, air con and Bluetooth all add to the driving experience.

Ron IS NOT a fully fitted camper, he doesn't have an internal loo or shower, pop top or even fridge. He is however an ideal van in which to start your adventure.
