On picking up the camper van on 12July. It was explained to me that various parts of the van, including external and internal has deficiencies; including front of the vans grill was missing.
Going onto the internal deficiencies. The first, was the fridge which was not working (this was frustrating as I had already bought Dodd items that needed refrigerated). Second was the electric operated window blinds did not work ( this was again frustrating; having to manually open and pull the blinds to operate). Third: the blackouts. There was insufficient rubber suction pads to fit them. ( this was particularly difficult) this was imperative to privacy which I didn’t have).
The van itself ran really well for its age.
Finally, there was no offer of any compensation.
Great time in jake’s bongo; good size for two adults with enough storage in boot, and roof when parked. We took a flat sheet and duvet and super cosy. Jake great to deal with and v helpful. Unfortunately the fridge wasn’t working when we had it but everything else worked great. We couldn’t work out how to fill water (bit awkward to access) -probably us but might be worth asking jake to show. Convinced us to buy a camper:)
The perfect tiny camper van! Sleeps 3 adults, but 2 more comfortably. Bring your own duvet, plates/bowls and cutlery! Enjoy the little retro van
We spent 10 days wild camping and in campsites and this van was perfect for the two of us.
The process was simple and great, would really recommend taking a trip in Jake’s Mazda Bongo.
The automatic transmission makes all the hills around the North Coast really easy to navigate.
Jake's a really easy going guy and made the whole process super simple.
Really enjoyed our week in the Bongo - it's not luxury but you shouldn't expect that on one of these trips.
We managed to fit 3 adults, though we had to do a 'clear out' of unnecessaries such as camping chairs etc when we realised there wasn't enough space for all that. But if you have the right expectations, you'll have a fantastic trip in this reliable bongo.
Definitely will be going to Scotland again and would go through Jake if we're using a camper
Amazing van perfect for the North Coast 500. Jake was great and we will definitely be booking again
Had a fantastic time touring Scotland in Jakes Bongo! Would certainly recommend it and maybe even do it again in the future!
Great vehicle and camper! Perfect for exploring the highlands or anywhere really. Jake was super kind and helpful, too!
We had an amazing time camping in Glencoe for two nights and found Jake’s van perfect for what we needed it for. The bed was comfy, the pop up roof was spacious and cosy and all of the appliances were easy to use. Communication with Jake was great and We’ll definitely book again soon and recommend to everyone we know.
The van was brilliant. We are sold on buying a mazda bongo. The van was a great size, comfortable and easy to drive.
Van was well equipped and easy to use.
