Melton Mowbray

3 Belted seats 2 Adult berths

This campervan doesn't half pack a punch! Floyd is a freshly converted super sleek and very high spec 2-berth campervan for hire in Leicestershire. This is one heck of a cool styled camper with a crisp white and solid wood interior that makes it feel really spacious inside.

His owners have created a totally off-grid camper which feels like a tiny home inside! Floyd has hot and cold water; radiant underfloor heating; decent sized appliances and lots of storage for all your adventure needs! There is enough solar generated electricity to not have to worry about it; 240v power there when you need it; a toilet and shower; and a projector for kicking back with a good film and bottle of wine after a long day exploring or when the darker nights draw in.

With large comfy sofas during the day and a snuggly double bed at night – Floyd is the prefect camper van to hire for a romantic getaway, a couples wild camping adventure, and most importantly, an incredible rolling home away from home.

About the Campervan

Description of Beds: Floyd sleeps up to two people in a full-width luxury foam double bed which effortlessly converts into a four-seater dinette area using a gas-sprung pedestal.

Description of Seating: Three belted seats in the cab (including driver), all front facing with head rests.

About the area: Floyd lives in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire; perfectly located to explore rolling countryside and rural market towns, as well as the nearby vale of Belvoir and picturesque county of Rutland. It's also really easy to hop on the A1 or A46 to venture further afield in any direction.

Parking: If you drive to collect Floyd, you are welcome to leave your car in his normal spot on a driveway in a quiet residential street. If you come by train, Floyd's owners will be able to pick you up from Melton Mowbray station.

Cooking Equipment: In addition to the two-burner gas hob inside, there is an optional compact BBQ that you can use to cook outside. Floyd has everything you could need to cook up a feast, including: mugs | plates | bowls and cutlery for four |two crystal-look acrylic wine glasses | champagne flutes | large tumblers | two chopping boards | stove top kettle | toaster | frying pan | large and small saucepans |various cooking utensils. Floyd also has a collapsible washing up bowl | dish drying mat and a small dustpan and brush.

Water Facilities: Floyd has a 70-litre cold water tank and 22 litre hot water tank. These feed the kitchen sink and the outside shower and are filled from a single water inlet point on the outside of the van. The hot water is heated by either the diesel heater or an electric immersion heater, which can be used even when off-grid. Waste water drains into the grey water tank slung under the floor. This is easy to empty into an appropriate disposal point via the tank's drain tap. There is also a portable toilet available.

Audio Equipment: Floyd has a radio, CD player and Bluetooth in the cab. In the main living space, there is an optional portable Bluetooth speaker. For those who enjoy relaxing to a movie after a long day exploring, Floyd can be hired with an integrated projector and 55” retractable screen. The projector accepts HDMI and USB connections allowing files to be played from a memory stick or streamed from services like Netflix via your phone or tablet.

Type of Heating: Floyd has underfloor heating, powered by a diesel heater which lives under the van. Fuel is taken directly from the main diesel tank so there is no need for separate top-ups. The heating can be programmed to come on and go off at set times or set temperatures, using a thermostat; just as in most homes. This type of radiant heating system may take a little longer to heat than other types, but it warms the fabric of the van, rather than blowing warm air. Therefore, once up to temperature, Floyd stays warm and provides a comfortable living space at any time of year!

Conversion Story: After listening in awe to the tales of their friends and family who owned and travelled in campers, it’d always been a dream of Dave and Helen's to own one for themselves. With Dave a self-confessed DIY addict and Helen a lover of any excuse to get creative and play with interior design, they knew the ultimate goal was to build their own camper from scratch, with the hope of creating a real feel of home from home. In July 2019, the dream became a reality when they found Floyd; a 2015 Peugeot Boxer courier van with a ton of potential! The dimensions of Floyd were perfect for their needs; tall enough to stand in, wide enough to sleep across the van, long enough to feel spacious and short enough to fit on the driveway!

With Floyd attracting many admirers, Dave and Helen now take bespoke commissions as proud Quirky Converters; Country Road Campers. To follow their story in full check out @country.road.campers on Instagram. They really hope that you’ll love Floyd just as much as they do; he makes the perfect travel companion for adventures of all kinds.

PLEASE NOTE: we've recently received a number of enquiries about pets. Much as we love them, pets are not permitted when hiring Floyd. This allows us to keep him in best possible condition for everyone to enjoy.. we hope you understand.

    I had a great trip in Floyd. Really well equipped with a comfortable bed and great hob and fridge. I also found Floyd to be a comfortable drive so I have no hesitation in recommending him highly 👍😎

    We live across the road from the lovely owners of Floyd and have watched his creation. It was a joy to hire him for our wedding night accommodation at our festival wedding. A real treat to have heating and hot and cold running water. Currently, our camper van doesn't have these facilities (hence hiring luxury). Thank you so much for the beautiful finishing touches - you made Rach rather emotional. We would definitely hire again and would love to travel further afield. A great experience and one that everyone should try.

    We had an amazing holiday in Floyd, he was very comfortable and we had access to absolutely everything we needed including a projector to watch movies at night. The owners were very accommodating and kind, Floyd is well equipped and looked after with heating, hot water, gas cooker, fridge, storage and more. We couldn't believe how comfortable the bed was, I can't wait to use Floyd again and take him on another adventure.

    Floyd was the perfect host for our tour of North Norfolk. We really enjoyed driving him around, found parking for him everywhere we went and felt both suitably cool in the heat and safe and warm in the wind and rain. Everything you can think of that you might need was to hand in the drawers and cupboards and he was a very comfortable place to spend a night or drop in and out of during the day.

    We rented Floyd to go to Scotland and it was an amazing experience. Floyd had everything we needed and it felt like a home with plenty of space to live in for 2 weeks and lots of storage space. The underfloor heating was amazing with the unpredictable Scottish weather and kept us nice and cosy. Everything went very smoothly for our first campervan trip. Would highly recommend and Floyd’s owners are the loveliest people and very helpful.

    We had a lovely few days of adventuring with Floyd! He’s super smooth to drive, even when we were navigating narrow country lanes in Norfolk. Floyd is well equipped, with every kind of utensil and tableware you need for making meals, ample storage space in the cupboards above as well as the benches, and we felt super spoilt with the gorgeous underfloor heating which kept us nice and toasty throughout our time in Floyd! Not to mention the spacious and comfy bed which was very welcome at the end of the day. Helen and Dave are so kind and made sure we had everything we could possibly need for a comfortable stay. We’d highly recommend them and Floyd. Thanks again for a great trip!

    We had an amazing time travelling around the Lake District in Floyd! He was well equipped with everything we needed to make a hearty breakfast to prepare us for our long hikes during the day and had all the comforts for when we wanted to settle down for the night. The whole booking process was a breeze. Throughout, Helen and Dave ensured all our needs were met and made finding our way around Floyd a lot less daunting with thorough explanations about the equipment and a handy manual in case we needed a refresh whilst travelling. We would definitely recommend booking Floyd for any trip and hope to be booking him again sometime for the next memorable adventure!
