Why don't you come on over and say hello to Valerie? A head-turner of a camper van. This swish and comfortable VW Camper located in South East London will take you on an adventure to remember, whether you want to climb hills, hike trails, cycle by the sea or simply spend time with friends.
Valerie is super flexible for both off-grid and campsite holidays; she has a 270w solar panel for when you want to take the road less traveled but still have cool drink waiting in the fridge, and 240v hook up for when you need the comforts of a microwave and a TV.
If you want to host friends and need extra cooking power you can plug in an external gas BBQ. If you're seeking adventure, sling your kayak or surfboard up on the roof bars, which can also take a roof box.
Cook yourself up a breakfast of kings (& queens!). Valerie will be stocked with teabags, sugar, salt & pepper, spices, milk, butter and a freshly baked loaf. Ready for your adventure!
About the Campervan
Description of Beds: The large U-shaped lounge seating area converts into either two single beds or a 6 x 6.3 ft super king size bed, all with very comfy memory foam mattresses. If you don't fancy taking the bed down, there is another table and front seating area behind the cab. The front seating area can also be used as a 4.2 x 2 ft child’s bed with an optional cot bumper.
Description of Seating: 1 driver seat and 2 passengers all with seat belts. The front passenger seats are on a swivel base, which gives you two more seats to use internally. Valerie is made to be sociable - there's comfy seating for up to 9 people in this camper van which is good - because when you hire this campervan, your friends will be begging to come along too!

Audio and Technology:
If entertainment's your thing, this campervan has it all! There is a 24" flatscreen TV with built in DVD player to enjoy at the back of the van and a Kenwood 5" touch screen CD/DVD/DAB player at the front.
The speakers in the cab have been upgraded, with extra behind-the-head speakers added to provide the highest quality sound whilst driving. A treat for the ears and the perfect way to make long drives a pleasure.
Valerie also comes with a portable bluetooth speaker to use in the rear and for alfresco eating.
Type of Heating: Valerie has newly installed LPG 3kw gas heating, meaning she will keep you toasty all year round.
Valerie started life as a courier delivery vehicle and was then lovingly converted by Mike and Becky, who spared no expense turning her into a lovely home-on-the-road for their growing family. They maintained her meticulously, so the van is responsive, powerful and a real joy to drive.
There are some lovely personal touches from them in the van, including the bespoke awning for the back doors made by a friend who repairs bouncy castles!
I bought her as a Covid escape vehicle to visit family and friends, explore the UK and get to some festivals. I’m a singer by trade, so Valerie is also my hotel when I have to work away from home.
I love using Valerie as a base vehicle when I go off-grid camping with friends. We use the awning when it rains, cook on the hob and a fire, and there’s always kettle of hot water ready when you need a cuppa. Perfection!
