3 Belted seats 2 Adult berths
It's near impossible not to have a hoot in Hoots! This lovingly converted 2 berth campervan has been fully kitted out by the team at Slow Road Campers with a number of high spec features to keep you comfortable through the summer and winter months. It's sleek white-washed design has been complimented with a calming shade of royal blue to create a romantic and relaxing atmosphere. The attention to detail is to be highly admired with a number of thoughtful touches throughout including a hanging fruit & vegetable holder, matching soft furnishings and hanging plants.
Stick the kettle on and enjoy breakfast in your very own king size bed, which is entirely fixed, allowing you to spend less time faffing and more time adventuring. Leave nothing to be desired in Hoots's spacious and adaptable kitchen which has been equipped with a 2 ring gas hob, abundance of food storage and refrigerator to keep your ingredients fresh and drinks cold. Serve up panoramic views with dinner; with Hoots's many windows, you can dine inside or out, rain or shine!
Hoots is the definition of 'off-grid ready' with solar power, a comprehensive heating and cooling system and toilet. There is also an outside shower, allowing you to be at one with nature in the best possible way!
Please note: Hoots is not a child-friendly campervan, as Hoots' owner has designed Hoots for adult customers only.

Heating: For your comfort, Hoots has a Truma Combi LPG heater & hot water boiler - giving instant heat for those chilly days, with a number of outlets around the van to heat the space quickly & efficiently. The digital control panel makes using the Truma simple - giving options for a timer function (wake up to a toasty warm van!) and thermostatic control. This works perfectly in combination with the Maxxfan Deluxe,
giving total temperature control in the van to heat and to cool.
Extra Information: The awning is the top-of-the-range Fiamma F80S, fully motorised with LED light bar. It's 4m long x 2.5m wide when fully extended & links the space immediately outside the van with the interior - almost doubling the 'living space'. Equally perfect for a long lazy (and shaded) afternoon nap, or for defining the space for evening entertainment.
Then the huge Dometic rooflight is the feature for you! Positioned directly above the comfy king sized bed, you can take full advantage of those clear nights, without even getting out of bed! The rooflight has 3 opening positions for ventilation - as well as a fly screen & insulated blackout blind.
Conversion Story: Hoots has had an easy life as a long wheel base, has low miles, FSH and was perfect to convert. It had an extremely high spec for conversion and includes air conditioning in the cab, cruise control, reversing camera & parking sensors. It is fantastic to drive. The van was converted in the knowledge that it was to be used in all weathers 12 months a year - it is equally comfortable in the heat of the summer or in the more chillier, winter months.
It has been hand painted in fresh blue and white colours, and is extremely light, airy, spacious and the owl theme is reflected throughout the van. You can dine in style either inside or out, and if wished the awning can be set up at the "touch of a button".
With a powerful solar panel on its roof, Hoots will never need to be "hooked up" for power, it is totally self-sufficient, giving you masses of freedom.
The purpose built heavy duty drawer in the garage area means that Hoots is the perfect van to take on cycling adventures, or indeed any adventures big or small. It has been designed for pure comfort on and off the road for the novice adventurer or the more experienced - it is top end, very well maintained & equipped and is super cool!
