Hiro is a stylish diesel 2.0 litre van with 5 manual gears, parking sensors, bluetooth phone connection, cruise control, upgraded alarm system and GPS tracker, cab air-con system, front fog lights and heated rear view mirrors. The van is super easy to drive and in good condition. Hiro’s last full service was on 18 November 2020 when new rear tyres, brake pads & brake disks were fitted and a wheel realignment done. We the full vehicle and service history. Hiro’s MOT is valid until November 2021 and we’ve not encountered any issues mechanically during the time we’ve owned him. He’s done 99,500 miles and is ready for more adventures! The fresh service & MOT gives the new owner full peace of mind that he runs smoothly.
Hiro is an uber cool, super stylish compact camper designed to provide the optimum living space for a family of three, a couple or a base for solo adventures with a four-legged friend.
With an easy to use pop-top roof, Hiro instantly becomes a spacious living space during the day, but remains easy to drive and park up. The kitchen is the ultimate in al fresco dining with its pull-out hob, and with solar panels, you’re fully set for wild camping and off grid living. You will find plenty of storage space in the cupboards and under the seats, as well as a clever pull-down table that maximises the space you have inside. Hiro is very simple to manage so there is not much that can go wrong!
