About the Campervan

Description of Beds: Ola sleeps two people in a fixed double bed, with a memory foam mattress that measures 177cm long by 120cm wide. Located at the rear of the van, this means you can open the doors on the morning and have coffee in bed while looking out at the view.

Description of Seating: Ola has three belted seats in the front (including driver).

About the area: Based in East London, Leyton is the ideal starting point for any adventure. Just 5 miles from the M11, Ola is perfect if you're looking for a weekend away from the city, whilst also being easy to travel to if you're based out of London.

Parking: If you drive to collect Ola, you are welcome to leave your car in her normal spot (street parking on a quiet residential road), just click the 'parking add-on' at the checkout - £4 per weekday, and free on weekends. Alternatively, we are close to Leyton underground station and Stratford overground.

Cooking Equipment: In addition to the fitted gas hob inside, there's also a single stove for outdoor cooking. Ola also comes with a fridge box, which can be either plugged in or removed to keep your picnic cool on-the-go. Everything you need to cook up the perfect meal is included; hob kettle | stove-top espresso machine | toasting rack | pan with lid x 2 | frying pan | 2 large plates | 2 small plates | 2 bowls | 1 salad bowl | 1 platter | 2 place mats | 4 coasters | cutlery for 2 | sharp knife | cork screw | peeler | masher | wooden spatula and spoons | tongs | small sieves | tin opener | bottle opener | cups and mugs | 2 egg cups | chopping board | tea towels | lighter | sponge | washing up liquid | hand wash | complimentary tea, coffee & sugar | salt and pepper | small dustpan & brush.

Water Facilities: There are two 12L freshwater tanks and one 12L greywater tank. One freshwater tank and the greywater tank are located in the cabinets below the sink, meaning that they can be easily refilled and discarded even for the unseasoned camper. The spare fresh water tank is kept in the back of the van and can be replaced when necessary. The sink is connected to the freshwater tank via a hose and pump, powered from the leisure batteries, which turns on when you open the tap.

Audio Equipment: The cab comes equipped with a USB bluetooth adaptor so you can play music from your phone via the radio's speakers. For in the living area, there’s an Anker Bluetooth speaker with 15 hours of playtime.

Type of Heating: Ola has a top-of-the-line 2kW Autoterm Air 2D diesel heater that will keep you warm throughout the coldest of nights. Each wall and ceiling is insulated, keeping the living space warm in the winter. And because of Ola’s many windows, she also has custom made thermal window covers to not only keep the heat or cold out, but also the light.

Conversion Story: Ola was originally a minibus for a church, and was converted by Scandivan - their very first creation. Inspired by Scandinavian design principles and ethos, Scandivan’s designs are centred around minimalism, simplicity and functionality along with muted colours and neutral tones. She has been well looked after and has also had a significant amount of work carried out recently as well as regular servicing, and is therefore easy and pleasant to drive.

    This was my first Campervan experience. From looking through the QC website to selecting Ola and booking online the process was fun, easy and enjoyable. Meeting the host and given a tour enabled me to confidently set off for a 500 mile 3 day tour covering Oxford, Birmingham and Norfolk before returning home. She drives well with good visibility all round and is easy to park. The spacious interior layout has a great blend of wood, plants and soft furnishings. Everything has been extremely well thought through and is provided which supported my trip and gave me a great level of comfort ensuring a wonderful experience overall.

    First, the positives; Claire is a brilliant host and extremely helpful and easy to deal with. Ola is comfortable, well equipped, snuggly and easy to drive. You can easily get about in her, even on Lake District rosds that you wouldn’t want to take a motor home down. She looks pretty. Her heater is brilliant and her bed is comfortable, (though I wouldn’t want to fit two average height people in it personally - I need a king size bed!). It was -1 outside and I was not cold, particularly once I had found instructions online on how to programme the heater properly. I’m a newbie to campers so it’s difficult for me to judge what is normal. The downsides: Ola is a former church vehicle and rather an old lady. She was listing to one side, which was a bit scary. Her alternator broke on the way back. I understand she had been fitted with a second hand part in May, which seems surprising for a hire vehicle. It took 6 hours for me to be recovered on a Saturday late afternoon and I finally got home at 2 in the morning. There were a few loose wires and no fire extinguisher or carbon monoxide monitor that I could see which really ought to be illegal. The hook up is through the driver’s window rather than an external port. Not all her window screens stick on properly. Her door needs to be coaxed open. If you are average height you won’t be able to stand up in Ola, which I should perhaps have realised and is a bit of a deal breaker for me. I would prefer a fridge with a door that opens rather than a top loader. But for a fun trip, provided the alternator gets fixed and you don’t mind these caveats, she will show you a good time.

    OLA was an absolute dream! Running perfectly, with a beautiful minimalist spacious layout with even more amenities then you could hope for, Ola gave us a brilliant weekend. We travelled far, with stops every day in peak U.K. heat, wild camped and had the best of times, in the ultimate comfort. I can not recommend Ola enough and we will certainly be renting again, along with every other person who saw our photos or we met on our travels who was equally complimentary. Finally, Claire was the perfect host, handing over Ola with clear instructions, flexible, helpful and warm mannered. All in all, an absolute joy! Rent Ola!! Thank you!!

    Ola’s owner, Claire, was lovely; very accommodating and relaxed. Ola is an old van with a new rustic interior. The bed is fixed and runs across the width of the vehicle, which is fine if you are short; I am 5 foot 6 and it was tight, with a wooden frame at either end. My partner, who is slightly taller, struggled. The mattress was otherwise very comfortable. This van does not hold enough water to go off grid for long, so we didn’t test the solar power for any length of time. All things said, this is a basic van with a nice mattress and rustic decor.

    We had a fantastic few nights in Ola - she ran like a dream and had so many compliments from other campers. We are now hooked on the vanlife.

    Claire is a great host that provides a very high level of service. She went out of her way to fix something that wasn't quite right, which included sending a part to the hotel we were staying in! Ola is a lovely campervan with a high level of finishes throughout. We had a fantastic week in the Lakes - thank you!
