Meet Pumba – the ultimate day van. If you’ve ever wanted a wicked surf bus or want to try out a practical van, a beautiful drive you can take on longer trips, Pumba is an ideal choice. Easy to park and ‘go anywhere’ due to being a standard van size, Pumba is ready to drive away and take you on your next trip, near or far!.

Pumba is a two seater, side door sliding diesel and has been lovingly kitted out with the following mod-cons:

Insulation and wood wall panelling
Insulated floor with stunning, easy-clean luxury flooring
Double gas ring hob connected up to gas bottle (all attachments, cage, and bottle with remaining gas plus magnetic sensor included) – warm up with a cup of tea or cook a three course meal, all in the back of your van
Loads of storage space beneath cooker and sofa bed – plus an easy access cubby
Fold out double sofa bed, so you can snooze while you wait for the perfect tide, or stay overnight wherever you are
Folding memory foam mattress and topper included, with brand new cover
Made-to-measure curtains with velcro attachments for extra privacy, including full across-cab curtain – ideal for wriggling in or out of that wetsuit in peace!
Fold out table for a brew or food prep and a folding chair
Leisure battery, ideal for phone charging and cooler box
Solar trickle charger, steering lock, alarm etc
European driving kit, fire extinguisher and load of other essentials to ensure you’re ready to go.

As for the ‘under the hood’ stuff, we’ve done loads of work to Pumba (and have the paperwork to prove it) including:

Completely reconditioned gearbox and new clutch – only 3000 miles and 2 years old, it changes gear like a brand new vehicle
Welding sills and panels underneath – rust is a classic issue with the VWs, but this one has been properly looked after
New battery in summer 2023 (with 4 year guarantee) – starts beautifully
New water pump and coolant for cooling during traffic
She was lowered but it’s not practical for speed bumps and country lanes, so she was moved up to her correct position and now drives anywhere you want to go!

I bought Pumba to try out van life – the people I bought her from took her on a three-month trip around Europe. My similar grand plans were scuppered by work-travel, but I have had many amazing UK trips to festivals, plus holidays in Devon and Cornwall in her and she’s fully sold me on van life.
I’m gutted to sell her but I’m not going to have time to travel over the next few years, so she deserves a new person or couple to continue her adventures with in 2023 and beyond.

Beds Description

One fold out sofa bed with memory foam custom folding mattress with new microfiber cover.
