Conversion Story: ‘Silurian was purchased in 2018 by two friends wanting to test their creativity and produce something special.

Silurian is a one-off conversion that was both a joy and a rewarding learning curve. We really hope you enjoy it.

    I booked this for Robs 40th birthday as a surprise and it didnt disapoint! We had the best holiday ...4 nights exploring the Pembrookshire coast. The van was well equipt, it had everything we needed to be comfortable. It kept us warm and felt spacious and had a great sound system in the back. It couldnt have been more perfect for us. We would definitely book again should we visit wales. Rhodri and Jo were very helpful and accomodating too. Saying goodbye to Silurian was emotional!

    Our two night stay in Silurian was perfect! It had everything we needed for a lovely stay at two separate campsites. Everything was explained to us simply by Rhodri which made our first time in a campervan a breeze - and there was also a very handy manual in case we forgot anything. The van is beautifully decorated and has all the utensils we needed for our stay. Would highly recommend booking this van!

    We had a lovely experience with renting Silurian from Rhodri. It's perfect for a couple, we highly recommend it! Rhodri was very nice and comunicative, showed us Silurian and how to manage it, which was very simple, even for first time campervan users! The van itself is very spacious and has everything we wanted. We especially liked the fact that the bed is very large and also that we could stand inside the van (my girlfiend is quite tall and managed to walk inside without a problem). All the kitchen stuff work very well and everything is ordered and easy to use. The van layout is stunning, we liked the wooden tiles and the little submarine windows and the large table. We cant wait to take another adventure with Silurian :) Ariella and Amir
