About the Campervan

Description of Beds: Embla sleeps up to two people and a dog in a fixed standard small double bed (120cm wide and 190cm long) on a comfy Emma mattress.

Description of Seating: Embla has three belted seats in the front (including diver) with headrests. Inside there is seating for two adults (single seat which pulls out to convert to a double bench).

Description of Electrical Setup: Embla has full offgrid capabilities, ideally suited for rugged adventures away from civilisation with 220Ah leisure batteries (with battery monitor), DC-DC charger to charge the leisure battery automatically when driving, 250W inverter for AC powered appliances (e.g. laptops) and 2x200W solar panels. It also has a mains charge for mains hook-up, making it equally at home at campsites.

There is a single plug socket and two USB ports in the main living area, and a USB in the bedroom. Lighting is not an issue with two ceiling spotlights in the living area, one in the bedroom, a separate reading light in the bedroom and LED strip lights in the garage. Plus obligatory #vanlife fairy lights around the bed and separate solar powered fairy lights that can be set up outside for the ultimate cosy feeling.

About the area: Embla lives in zone 2 in South East London, only a two-minute walk from the nearest overground and train station, and on the A2 which makes getting out of London easy (and avoids the need to drive around narrow residential streets).

Parking: Embla is parked in a car park, just a two-minute walk from the nearest overground and train station. There is free on street parking locally, and parking can also be booked in advance in the car park where Embla lives.

Cooking Equipment: Embla is equipped for culinary adventures and has everything the modern foodie could need to prepare a delicious meal after a day hiking the local hills, or just lazing around a campsite with friends, including a Thetford Triplex with three gas hobs and an oven, two saucepans and two frying pans, cutting boards, two sharp knives, grater, scales, colander, wine opener, kettle and mixing bowls. When you are ready to eat, sit down with a full set of melamine plates and bowls for two people, wine glasses, cutlery, mugs, glass tumblers and of course two traditional tin camping mugs for a post dinner cup of tea in front of the campfire. For the coffee connoisseur, Embla will come with enough light roast coffee beans to get you started, as well as a manual grinder and a cafetiere.

Every chef knows that quality ingredients are invaluable, and Embla has a larger than average fridge/freezer to make sure those ingredients (and the post dinner beers) stay as fresh as possible.

Water and Sanitation: Embla has a 60l freshwater tank to make sure you don't run out on off grid adventures, with a 10l removable grey water tank under the sink which needs to be manually emptied. The freshwater tank supplies hot and cold water to the sink via a pump, and if you need to rinse off after a long day of exploring, why don't treat yourself to a hot outdoor shower, making the most of Embla. Embla also comes with an optional PortaPotti (as an add on).

Audio Equipment:. Embla comes with a waterproof Bluetooth speaker so you can play your own music. A projector and screen are also available as an add on to complete your outdoors cinematic adventure.

Type of Heating: For year-round adventures, Embla has a Truma Combi Combination Boiler and Space Heater, keeping it nice and toasty even on a cold winter day. The heater can operate off either gas (for offgrid adventures), or mains plug in at campsites.

Conversion Story: In the dark days of Covid lockdown, Embla's Scandinavian owner started dreaming of offgrid adventures and freedom in the form of a bespoke van. A van that could take her and her four-legged companion across the UK and beyond in comfort all year round, without relying on campsites and internet cafes to work.

With the help of some lovely local converters and many hours pondering design features and drawings, Embla was completed in early 2022. Embla embodies Scandinavian "friluftsliv" and adventure, and combines Scandi chic with hygge, comfort with practical solutions, and space and airiness with storage (and then some more storage). With Wi-Fi, heating, hot water, an outdoor shower, a full kitchen, and a fixed bed, Embla is everything you could want after a long day of hiking and gives you freedom to explore at your own pace.

Embla is a beautiful camper, decorated with style and equipped with everything you could need for a trip away. We stayed on a campsite so used the electric hook-up, but the solar panels and battery meant we could keep our food cold in the fridge when we were on the road too. The bed is super comfy, the two of us could sit happily at the pull out table and there's loads of storage space to stow your things. We'd absolutely recommend Embla for your camping trip!
