The bed is very large, just slightly smaller than a super king size. Measuring 5’7 wide by 6’2 long, it is much wider than the average double bed, with thick custom made cushions that ensure a goods nights sleep.
The nature of the bed being ‘long ways’ in the van also means taller people are still able to lie straight – I am 6’6″ and was able to sleep very comfortably!
Easily accessible, touch sensitive, reading lights also mean you don’t have to leave your bed to turn off the lights – a real bonus when you’re settled for the night.
Fred the Ford – a modern conversion, perfect for couples seeking a reliable, cosy and fun loving camper to explore the world with.
Suitable for multiple purposes, from a stealthy off-grid weekend away to month long adventures. We completed the North Coast 500 in this van, as well as 8 weeks in rural Spain and trips to the big cities – Fred the Ford can do it all!
Because of the high level of conversion, we were able to remain off-grid for between 3-4 days at a time. The control panel above the sink would notify us that we were running low on resources and we needed to visit a campsite or motorhome point on our journey to empty waste and fill up our water tank. The solar panels and alternator make charging appliances straightforward when not plugged into an external electricity supply using the hookup points and this allowed us to even ‘work from home’ whilst on our trip. The inconspicuous external appearance of the van is great when parked in urban areas, with the vehicle tracking and deadlock function adding to feelings of safety and security.
Despite neither of us having any experience driving large vehicles or vans, the modern spec of the van made driving easy and the medium wheel base allowed us to fit within normal car parking spaces and navigate tight streets. Standard modern factory fitted luxuries such as as Bluetooth calling, cruise control, reversing camera and sensors add to the overall driving experience.
We’re due to move to London and therefore have to part with our beloved Fredrick. We want to find him some new owners who’ll take as good care as we have and make some great memories! Think you’re up to the job?
Can be collected from the Vale of Glamorgan (just outside Cardiff) or Gloucestershire.
