The van was perfect for our trip, the fit-out internally is still fresh out of the box and the van drives really well and is easy to manoeuvre around tight lanes etc. We took it up to Scotland and very much enjoyed our trip, stopping off grid and at a site with facilities to hook up to electric etc. Would recommend Shaun as a host, he gave a very thorough demonstration of all the vehicles features.
Motorhome and Campervan Hire in Darlington
Shaun was a very friendly, helpful owner, always ready to help with any queries by phone before or during the hire period. As newbies to campervanning he explained everything well and in layman’s terms so driving and using the van was comfortable and relaxed. He has a range of add-ons that come with the van (e.g. roll mats for the bed, camp chairs and a table, spare gas bottle, torches) and the van itself is well equipped and ready to go. Our only regret was that we did not take up Shaun’s offer to use the drive-away awning – but hopefully we’ll try that next time. We were even supplied with canned goodies in the fridge (pale ales and spirit mixers) – these went down a treat. As he had no immediate prior bookings to our planned pick-up or nothing immediately after our due return date Shaun let us collect earlier and return later so we had a few more hours in the van, which was great. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances we had to come home a day early and Shaun has kindly offered us to take a day at no additional cost later in the year, which we both appreciated. I have no doubt we’ll be taking on the offer hopefully in warmer, drier weather than we met this time on our Yorkshire coast tour. Having never driven a long wheel base van before and having heard tales of difficulty parking I’m pleased to say this was not the case, driving and parking was easy (and the parking sensors are a useful backup if you are in any doubt). The weather could have been better but I don’t think the van could have been. A highly recommended, friendly and minimal stress hire process. Thank you Shaun and Kate 😊👍
I booked this stunning camper van for my partners birthday . It was our first time, so wasn’t sure exactly what to expect/take. The van was spotless and had everything you’d need, a little fridge for your essentials and little cupboards to store utensils etc. There was bedding/pillows/towels supplied if you prefer, or take your own. There is heating which was lovely especially throughout the evening and first thing in the morning. The van was great on fuel👍🏼 I had a few questions throughout my booking, and Dave was fantastic for sorting issues, very friendly and professional. Thsnkyou for giving me the opportunity to rent , we will definitely be booking this lil gem agsin👍🏼
Had the pleasure of renting David’s camper van at short notice for a few days away last weekend and really can’t speak highly enough of all aspects the experience, firstly the van itself which is a little eye catcher and had all the facilities to ensure our first experience of staying in a camper was absolutely faultless, very clean and a really nice drive and a huge plus for us personally was the heating system throughout the van which made the chilly nights & mornings so much more enjoyable, the van literally had everything we needed and more and I would 100% recommend David’s van to anyone looking to get away and experience the freedom it gives you, and secondly just a big thank you to David for giving us the opportunity to rent his van, he provided such a professional service and with us been first time campers went above & beyond to ensure we had a nice break away, thanks again and we will no doubt see you in the near future:)
Amazing experience! such down to earth guys to rent from & what an incredible machine to drive. Temp got down to -2 & we were comfy enough in -7 comfort limit sleeping bags. Due to being off cold ground unlike camping & the mattress being memory foam, if laid long enough in a spot it 100% warms up. This is commonly found in high-end sleeping pads with a foil reflection inner (possible something similar installed within the Tentbox). Cheers again guys! here's to next one!
