Conversion Story: Baloo was originally a British Gas van used to insulate homes in Scotland. The conversion was carried out by the previous owners over a period of 4 months. Having viewed a number of 'plastic' motorhomes and small transit style campervans they wanted a spacious and airy campervan with a 'country cottage' feel. Lots of large 100x60cm windows have been fitted to bring the outside inside. The 7ft 3inch internal height gives a great feeling of space. On rainy days the upper double bed can be lowered to create a second 'lounge' or kids den while the dining area still has the head height for a seated adult underneath. Air suspension has been fitted to smooth the ride. The external shower is perfect for washing off salt water, cleaning muddy bikes and water fights!
In the winter of 2022 Baloo was completely refurbished and upgraded and now boasts an internal shower, off grid hot water, new upholstery, bedding and a cheerful new colour scheme.
Trips in Baloo must be within the UK only (no EU travel) and sorry but no pets allowed.
