Vehicle Description

Vinnie, otherwise known as Vinnie Van Gogh, is a quirky, unique, off the grid 2013 Vauxhall Vivaro stealth camper. The van encompasses 6 gears and a 2.0 litre Diesel engine with a spacious 2 seater front cab. The van is gas-free.

The van is well decorated and has a really cosy, beach hut vibe. It’s a brand new conversion completed in July 2021. All parts and materials have been bought brand new especially for the conversion – many elements come with a warranty.

The bodywork is in good condition and I’ve had no issues whilst driving. The last 5k miles have almost exclusively been motorway miles.

Brand new MOT valid until 14 January 2023. The van has a full service history since it’s registration with the most recent service 17th August 2021. Vinnie has only had 2 previous owners including being an ex-Anglian Water company van and ex-dog Walker van so has been well looked after and serviced.

There is one near side tinted window and two rear door tinted windows, the bulk head has had a rear window & mirror installed to make driving that bit easier.

The van comes with a high quality tow bar with electric plug in and a length ways roof rack.

The van comes complete with a fully installed electrical system incorporating a 120w solar panel, a leisure battery especially for campers, a switch charge relay system, mains hook up powering 2 x 240v sockets (inc 2 usb charging points) and a 2100w 12v-240v inverter system which powers 2 more 240v sockets & USB chargers.

There are 4 x LED lights which make for a super cosy set up in the dark !

Vinnie has a 12v skylight and two way fan for cooking or air con, a security/camping side light, an electric cold water system with a sleek black tap and hand-made black sink. Vinnie also comes with an additional 2 cigarette charging points to the very rear of the vehicle & a solar panel / battery health indicator panel. There are further fuses and fuse outlets for any additional electrical items that may be installed in the future!

Vinnie comes with full interior pine cladding (stained and varnished), stunning oak styled flooring, and two lovely barn doors with window sills. The doors extend to the side for protection against the elements or can be fully extended to provide further space to the rear. Vinnie comes with white netting curtains, beautiful ceramic/glass tiling, and sleek oak worktops which makes it feel like a home from home.

The van comes with a cooler box with designated storage space. The two gorgeous oak style worktops come with cupboards and 4 spacious shelves offering different storage options. There is a smaller wooden shelf with two white storage boxes on the side wall and a black hexagon mirror situated on the other side above the sink & tap.

There is also a cork board to pin up all the adventure photos along the way!
