6 Belted seats 2 Adult berths 4 Child berths
Live van life on your own terms in Frida the campervan.
Owned by the co-founders of Quirky Campers, Frida utilises everything they have learned about layout, functionality and interiors, to create what they believe to be the ultimate family campervan. Fixed triple bunks for the kids with curtains and individual reading lights (which can be overridden with a master switch) make bedtime a doddle. Kids will be delighted with all the little details, including miniature cupboards to keep any treasures they find. The design also features 4 belted seats around a table, allowing for easy snacking, colouring and lego on the move.
Frida has a toilet stowed away under the wardrobe, which can be used inside the van or in a toilet tent outside. She also has an external shower which can be used with pre-warmed water.
Her design is inspired by her namesake, Frida Kahlo, and is full of colour and bold prints featuring plants and animals.

Conversion Story: Frida is a long-dreamed of van created by the co-founders of Quirky Campers, Lindsay and David. They owned their previous self-built van, Bella, for 13 years. Over time their needs and priorities had changed as they had gone from a young couple to parents of 3 growing children.
They knew they wanted their next van to be designed to maximise the ease and comfort of campervanning with kids, but were keen not to own anything too large that made country lanes challenging and parking in Easton almost impossible. So, they set out to create the perfect family layout in a medium sized van.
The thing that enabled them to have 4 belted seats around a table that can transform into a double bed was these magic seat frames from Leisure Vehicle Services .
Although they had built their previous van (and their house) themselves, with 3 kids aged 4, 4 & 6 and busy jobs running Quirky Campers, they figured it would take them a decade to complete it. So, they enlisted the help of talented craftspeople James and Anita from Rustic Simplicity whose work they had admired for many years. They had a lot of fun thinking through how to make it practical, beautiful and fun! Detailed 3D drawings were created and shared and many an evening were spent in long skype sessions!
The interior was inspired by her namesake, Frida Kahlo. They wanted the van to embody her love of colour and her spirit of non-conformity and living life on her own terms. They enlisted Lindsay’s cousin, interior designer Hannah Redden, to help turn Lindsay’s dreams into reality. Many an hour was spent looking for the perfect combination of colours, fabrics and flooring.
Thanks to lockdown they didn’t have a single glimpse of her in the flesh until she was delivered, finished and ready to go, to their door in late June. Luckily, she was just perfect.
