Meet Bernard. Handsome chap isn’t he? He comes all the way from California at a time when Elton John was just a rocket man and we were wearing our flares with, well, flair!

He is a Volkswagen T2 Early Bay camper. It’s always been a dream of ours to own a campervan for family adventures, but we never dreamed it would be a van as dapper and smart as our Bernard. We’re keen for others to enjoy escapades with Bernard,...

Bernard's in tip top condition for his age and we'd like to keep him that way for everyone to enjoy. This requires love and a little TLC. Any activities that may damage him (such as smoking/hosting parties) are not permitted, if you're in doubt about anything, please just ask.

You're not hiring a brand new T6 that's made to be driven hard and get you from A-B in the quickest possible time. Bernard is a gentle old man and we ask you treat him as such and he'll do you proud. We politely request that you only apply to hire Bernard if you're in agreement to treat him well, keep to a sensible speed and look after the handsome old chap.

Van was lovely. Issue with driving the van that couldn’t be resolved in time for our trip, but these things happen! The owner did everything they possibly could to ensure we could still have our holiday. Small but comfortable and very cute. Lots of interest in the camper when on site. Would book again. August 2021
