Romsey

3 Belted seats 2 Adult berths

Deets is a beautiful hand-crafted bespoke camper van conversion for hire in Romsey. This pet-friendly camper is the perfect rolling home for two. A fixed rear double bed means you have a faff free set up at night; you can simply snuggle up with the fairy lights on watching the sun set out the window, chilling out with a glass of wine in hand.

Deets is totally set up for self-contained off grid wild camping adventures. You can power up with solar as well as an inverter, whilst the large water tank feeds the indoor hot water shower. There is a large storage space above the cab accessed from within the van and under seat storage in the rear as well as large garage area. There is also a full-length wardrobe. An underfloor void means that provisions can be stored for extended periods off grid. In terms of adventure, Deets was originally designed to accommodate two full length surfboards inside the van and so you can bring your boards along for the ride. As an additional option Deets can carry two bikes (including e-bikes) at her back via an optional swing out rack.

The fresh, Scandi style design vibe is cosy and inviting as well as looking super swish on photos! Wherever you park up, you will be the envy of every other camper; having an epic camper van holiday in this high spec luxurious rolling home from home.

Absolutely loved our holiday away in Deets for 5 nights. The van was warm, comfortable and had everything we needed. We would highly recommend using Deets for a future break away. Mark & Lisa are also both very friendly people and made the process of hiring Deets easy. The dog also loved the trip as well!

    From Mark Gilmour...
    Thank you so much for looking after Deets so well, glad you had a fabulous time.
    A charming and well equipped van which oozes character. Perfect for a weekend getaway for 2. It is particularly suited to off grid camping and does not require electric hook up due to solar panels. A comfy fixed bed allowed for very relaxing sleeps. The rear shower attachment was a godsend in the heatwave. The available space has been ingeniously utilised and the huge water tank will last for days… One thing to note: it is worth bringing a gazebo for outside cover and to escape heat/ rain. You won’t fail to fall in love with Deets.

    I spent a very happy and comfortable seven nights touring north Wales in Deets and I was really sad when I had to give her back at the end of my trip. She is a lovely van: thoughtfully and cleverly designed, beautifully built and full of character and charm. She was well prepared when I picked her up. The impressive systems all worked flawlessly, particularly the incredible electrical system which always had enough power to do whatever was needed. The antenna and wifi router worked brilliantly too and I wouldn't have wanted to be without it. Lisa and Mark are very friendly and helpful and provided all the information I needed to make the most of the van including a really helpful series of how-to videos. And there is also a fascinating series of videos made by the woman who originally built it so I really felt I knew Deets before I met her.

    We had a lovely 4 days, 3 nights in Deets over the hottest days on record! Deets managed to keep us nice and cool in the cab and the air flow at night with the MaxxFan on created a good breeze. As it was our first ever van trip Mark was super helpful in explaining everything and the youtube videos he's done to explain everything were great for putting us at ease before we went. Deets was really easy to drive and had all the amenities we could wish for. I particularly loved the cinema option and the Deets Treats were a delight!

    Honestly the best camper we've stayed in! It is so well thought out! From the controls to the air vent to to touch lights. So so impressed and Mark was so lovely and helpful (even at 1am when I couldn't figure out the shower! ) Thank you to Mark and Deets, we will be back for another adventure!

    Thanks Jazzy, Sarah & Blue. You are most welcome back anytime. Glad you had a fantastic weekend. Mark
    Deets was a great camper van with everything we needed! Mark was brilliant and the simple videos on YouTube really helped understand all the controls from hot water and heating to cab controls - the rear camera was a blessing. Thanks!

    Thanks Tim, you had glorious weather as well. Glad you enjoyed your trip and thanks for looking after Deets so well.
    Great 4 nights spent in the lovely Deets in a very well designed van. It was our first trip in a camper and Deets had everything we needed. The large under bed storage was fab as I didn’t have to pack light! The bike rack was fabulous too and we loved the fact we could still open the back doors with the bikes on there. We plan to build our own van and we have lots of ideas that we can use in our van. Would recommend a trip.

    Deets was a complete dream. The van was equipped with everything we needed and was really comfortable. She was really well insulated which was handy in the wind and rain, so we stayed cosy all night. We'd recommend Deets to anyone and would love to adventure in her again!
