Water is heated using the whistling kettle on the gas hob. The water containers also supply a shower hose at the rear of the van for showering down things such as muddy boots, bikes, or even as a quick body rinse if off-grid. As with the kitchen water, heating the shower water would need to happen by using the whistling kettle. An additional solar camping shower is available for making things squeaky clean.

Conversion History: Bramble's owners first rented a Quirky Camper back in 2019 and fell in love with the freedom and spontaneity of off-grid van life and exploring our amazing outdoors. The fun and freedom of chasing blue skies and searching for hidden gems and sandy beaches led to the dream come true that is Bramble. Bramble offers the freedom to explore the great outdoors and a place to eat, sleep and repeat after a good day on the fells, shredding up the trails or waterfall dipping. Bramble's owners can offer a local's guide to off-grid van life in the lakes and point you in the direction of the best microbreweries and plant-based eateries.

    Could not have been better, Bramble is a lovely van and Vicky and Tom could not have been more helpful. To be able to step off the train at Oxenholme and straight into the camper in less than 3 hours from London makes for a stress free start to a holiday which is especially important if you are not used to driving a van. Everything worked perfectly and we found Bramble comfortable and easy to drive and park. We are very happy to recommend these lovely people and their lovely van.
