Vehicle Description

After a wonderful year of travels it’s unfortunately time for me to sell my micro camper Fanny. Looking for a quick sale so please make me an offer!

I bought her back in September last year from a lovely couple who converted her themselves. One of them was a joiner by trade and her dad was a mechanic, so Fanny was well converted and looked after.

I’ve lived in her part time for the last year, making trips all over the UK and have had a blast! In preparation to sell her, I’ve sanded back all the wood and given her a fresh lick of paint on the interior – she looks good as new. I’ve adored having her over the last year and am gutted to have to be selling her, but am moving into central London so it’s not worth keeping her.

Perfect for a single person or a couple. Super easy to drive and park due to her size and the nice big rear window. Fanny was my first van and she’s been such a dream, couldn’t have asked for a better van to start out with. Clean and minimalist interior makes her the perfect blank canvas too!

**Max height aprox 5ft8/9 – drivers seat does not push the complete way back due to fixed interior**

Van is in great running order; she drives smoothly with no problems. New battery fitted in January. New oil filter, engine oil, antifreeze and screen wash added in July.

Fanny passed her MOT first time in July with a few advisories due to some rust, though she still runs like a dream! This is, of course though, reflected in the price.

All paperwork is in order and well kept, including all the manuals for the van and appliances.

Beds Description

Slide out bed comes from underneath the sofa. Pulls out to make a small double bed 120 x 195. Super comfy and easy to pull out and put back.

Conversion Description

The van was converted by the previous owners, one of whom had been a joiner for three years and this was the second van conversion they had completed. Fanny is built from 15/18mm birch plywood, which keeps the space lovely and bright.

I’ve just now sanded back all the wood and given her a fresh lick of paint on the interior and she looks good as new! She has loads of insulation with foil, rock wool and expanding foam. Storage was prioritised in this build and every bit of space has been made use of, including an overhead storage box and lots of storage under the bed.
