About the Campervan

Description of Beds: Elton will sleep 4 people comfortably, two people in the rock and roll double bed downstairs and two people in the double bed contained in the pop up roof. When not using the pop up roof bed, the roof can remain up giving extra headspace and room during the day. Rock and Roll Bed: 118cm Wide 190cm Long. Pop Up Roof Bed 107cm Wide 230cm Long.

Description of Seating: Elton has four leather belted seats. Two seats with headrests in the front and 2 with removable headrests in the back. The front two seats swivel round to face the living area. The rear seats are on rails enabling their position to be changed easily giving more living space or more storage space in the back, as required. There is a table which can be slotted in easily at different positions in the living area and there are screw table legs as an extra so the table can be used for meals outside.

Description of Electrical Setup: Elton has both a lithium leisure battery, and a 200W solar panel, extending the amount of time you are able to stay “off-grid”, as well as 240V electric hook up capabilities. There are 4 plug sockets with USB provision able to be used when using electric hook up and 9 12V USB sockets throughout which can be used during all times.

About the area: Elton lives in Edinburgh in Scotland. A prime spot to not only enjoy the surrounding area-the beaches and coastal walks of East Lothian, the forests and waterfalls of Perthshire and The Borders, but also within easy driving distance of the Cairngorms and Loch Lomond/Trossachs National Park, Glencoe and the start of the famous North Coast 500 road-trip which takes you along some of Scotland’s finest coastal scenery.

Parking: If coming by car, you can leave your car free on a quiet residential street near to where we live. We are not far from both Waverley Station in Edinburgh and Edinburgh airport and are on easy tram and bus links from both.

Cooking Equipment: Elton should have all you need to rustle up some cooking delights on the two burner gas stove or in the gas oven. Included for your trip will be some tea, coffee, sugar, olive oil and vinegar, cooking foil and beeswax wraps, environmentally friendly liquid soap which can be used for both washing dishes and bodies and an environmentally friendly surface spray.
Cooking equipment includes 4 mugs, 4 glasses, 4 shot glasses/egg-cups, plates and side plates, server platter and lidded bowl, 2 chopping boards, kettle, frying pan, 4 pots, collapsible colander, bread knife, sharp knife, various cooking utensils and graters, corkscrew, stove top espresso machine and a gas hob non stick sandwich toaster.

Water and Sanitation: Elton has a 57 litre external underslung water tank, which will be full when you arrive. This supplies both instant hot and cold water to the sink inside via a pump. Elton also has a shower situated on the end of the wardrobe at the rear of the van, meaning you are able to have an outdoor hot, (or cold!), shower. A pop up privacy tent can also be supplied as an extra. Should you also wish to take a toilet with you, we can supply a pop up eco toilet as an extra.

Audio Equipment: Elton has an up to date VW infotainment system which includes DAB/FM radio, navigation system and bluetooth connectivity so you can play your own music, all controlled by an easy to use touch screen on the front dashboard.

Type of Heating: Elton has a diesel powered thermostat controlled blow heater which heats him up in no time, keeping you toasty and warm whatever the Scottish weather!

Extra Information: Elton was inspired by the old 1970s VW camper vans. Having had one of these VW vans in the past, we wanted Elton to evoke the nostalgic feelings of these old campers, but with all the luxuries, reliability and convenience of a modern van. Having looked at many companies, we decided to use a company in Devon called Cambee who use birch ply and formica to make their units, similar to the ones from the original VWs. I designed the flower formica design as a nod to the flower power designs so common in that era and the colour scheme used are all colours common from design of that era. To complete the experience, Elton is also kitted out with some vintage cookware, kitchenalia and crochet cushions.

We hope you love stepping back in time on your trip in Elton.

We're in love with Elton! We were three friends travelling around the North of Scotland and Elton was the perfect addition to our trip. We loved how energy efficient he is and how easy it is to drive him in the narrow Highland roads. Elton has two double comfy beds and everything you could imagine is provided... He also drinks diesel. Kirsten was really kind and very thorough with all the information needed. We'll be booking Elton again for sure!!! Thanks Kirsten and John!

    Thank you so much Yasmine. You were a pleasure to host and are both welcome back any time! :) Hope to see you again. Kirsten & Elton :)
    Elton was a pleasure to have for a few days. The van was the perfect fit for me and my adventure to isle of skye and the highlands; it drove smooth and with ease. GPS was very helpful as I was out of range for most of the journey. I felt very cool driving past people and seeing their big grins and waves; it is certainly a showstopper. I cooked many amazing meals in the well equipped kitchen; everything you can imagine needing, she’s got you covered. Kirsten is a great host and explains how to work everything before sending you off; everything was straight forward and easy to use. Overall I would say that this uwas one of the best things I have ever spent my money on. I HIGHLY recommend!!

    Thanks so much Brooke! It was a pleasure to host you and I'm so glad you had an amazing time in Elton. Come again any time. Kirsten & Elton :)
    Elton is a fantastic van, brand new, stylish and very well equipped with all necessities for a campervan adventure. The car drives like a modern VW, we didn't have any issues with it. Inside, it is equipped with everything you may need and extra options are available such as outdoor chairs and table which we used. Sleeping in the van was also comfortable and secure. Kirsten is a superb host, very friendly, responds quickly and provides all the necessary information from the moment of booking and throughout out trip. Overall a great experience; highly recommended, we will plan another trip with Elton for sure! I didn't experience any issues with Quirky Campers, everything was smooth.
