Conversion Story:Blubelle's owners Kati and Skippy come from a contemporary dance and circus background; and her roots are buried deeply in performing arts and Circus. Much of the inspiration for this iconic conversion came from the vehicles they saw at Burning Man festival where originality and creativity abound. Their conversion team was made up of many highly skilled circus folk from jugglers to street performers to a sculptural metal worker who created the woodburner from scrap metal! Blubelle's roots are buried deeply in performing arts and Circus, with a dream of living off grid in beautiful locations. So, here's Blu an art car that can go and find peace and tranquillity or community and entertainment to wash off everyday life and breath for a moment with family, friends or blissful solitude.

Blubelle is the perfect van! We (2 adults and 3 children) took her to a festival and wanted for nothing. The solar power means that there’s no stress about having to recharge the battery and there is plenty of storage under seats, beds and in the cupboards. The beds were really comfy and our little one especially loved having her own ‘bedroom’ set up in the cab. Skippy, her owner was super helpful too. Wonderful van that we hope to hire again!

    Great reliable quirky van. Had a great weekend at Badminton horse trials. Stove was a great addition to keeping us warm.

    Took a party of five on a wee trip to Cornwall. The van is really spacious and cleverly designed and fits five people, both while on road and parked up, really comfortably. It feels like everything's been thought through really well and it's actually quite fun to follow the designer's thought processes when you discover a new space saving trick they've employed! Cooking facilities are really good and you don't need a hook up to enjoy everything about the van. Hope to get another opportunity for a trip in Blubelle soon!!

    We had the most amazing time in Blubelle! It really is a gorgeous van, kitted out with everything we needed for our trip. The owner was super helpful and friendly too. We hope to take Blubelle on another adventure in the future!

    We had a fantastic trip with Blubelle. It was our first campervan trip and we took our two boys (age 3 & 4). The boys loved it so much they are already asking to do it again! The van was in good condition and very well equipped, we had everything we needed for our 3 day trip. I would highly recommend Blubelle for anyone considering a similar holiday.

    Our first campervan trip and we all had a great time. Blubelle is very comfortable and well designed, there wasn't much else we needed as a family of four.

    Thank you Skippy and Quirky Campers. You guys couldn't have been more accommodating. Pick up was very well organised and so was return - you made it so easy for us. This was our first experience with a Camper Van holiday and I have to say that the configuration in Bluebell worked really well for us. We loved Bluebell and hope that many more families do. Big thanks to you Skippy and of course Quirky.

    Such a great experience both the booking process and the actual use. Blubelle completely lived up to our expectations. She is beautifully decked out with everything you need. We travelled around Wales at the height of the summer with two young children and we have had the most amazing time. Blubelle gets noticed wherever we stopped and many people asked to have a look inside and they were all super impressed, just like us! Blubelle's owner was great in staying in touch throughout our journey and the handover both ends was easy, smooth and very personal. We would definitely recommend hiring through quirky campers. Not only do you get a very special campervan, you also get a service you will never get with commercial companies. Thank you very much!

    We had a wonderful experience with Skippy's van Blubelle! The way how Skippy has converted it is just amazing. It is beautiful (tasteful choices and cosy space) and very convenient (special award for the the USB sockets and the solar panel). We gave it back heavy hearted and would have booked it for two weeks if we had known in advance how pleasant it was! Don't hesitate to book it and thanks a lot Skippy!

    This is the third year in a row we've used Quirky Campers and the system works a treat, it's so good being able to connect to camper owners that live nearby. This year we hired Blubelle and she was fab - drove like a dream and plenty of safe, seat-belted chairs for all the family. She has an ingenious solar panel system which meant we had lighting and USB charging points without the need for a hookup. The little kitchen with foot pumped sink attached to a large pre-filled water canister and LPG gas tank means it's hard to run out of water/gas and makes it feel quite luxurious, yet still being off-grid. We also liked the fact that the kids had good sized, fixed bunk beds so they had their own space to chill in - they're 6ft long so slender adults can fit too! The only slight negative point was we had an unfortunate tyre incident outbound on our trip (not the owner's fault!) but there wasn't a spare, so the owner speedily helped us pay for a call-out service over the phone. Also the double bed is very small (not full width of van with a cut off corner) so if you're fairly tall and not particularly skinny, more than a few nights can start getting tricky comfort wise. The fitout is amazingly done though - owner even thought to make a magnetic cover to block the light from the roof ventilation!

    We had a great time with Blubelle. We were 5 travelling in wet Lake District so we spent a lot of time inside, and it worked out really well. There’s everything you need: The bedding is comfortable, there’s a proper kitchen, and a proper table when the double bed is folded up. Plenty of USB plugs to recharge phones and other devices, that’s really handy. Well done Skippy for making Blubelle, she’s pretty and smart. Five Stars!

    We hired Blubelle for a 4 day sisters road trip from Bristol to Ilfracombe . Blubelle is just perfect. Skippy the owner has thought of everything to ensure she provides you with a fun, cosy and comfortable stay. Blubelle was a joy to drive and a pleasure to sleep in. The whole process of hiring , pickup and drop off was so easy. I enjoyed it so much I'm already planning to hire Blubelle for a trip with my husband and 2 children at the start of next year. I would highly recommend this experience. Thanks Skippy.

    We had a fantastic trip in Blubelle touring around Cornwall. She is a very comfortable camper. The kids loved the bunk beds and we all loved getting the fire going before bed. She has everything we needed and it was great not having to ‘hook up’ as the solar panels worked a treat. Thanks Kati and Skippy and good luck with the new baby.
