Vehicle Description

The Vans and Recreation Lads have done it again. A muted pink van with cute lavender stripes. A wolf in cute clothing. This off grid rig can run infinitely on the huge solar panels and Victron off grid setup.

We have made an amazing full time van-life off grid adventure vehicle. Ready for trips on the continent and closer to home. Internal shower and huge living space all in this beautiful design.

We start by finding the perfect base van. One with full service history and a clean HPI. A cab is immaculate and body work as good as new. We then look at the underneath. One that is strong and ready to perform for years to come. A van that has a factory fit Reversing camera and audio parking sensors. As well as catalytic convertor lock and anti drill diamond dead locks.

One that will run a few laps round the globe and then a few more. We conduct a 300 item check list before buying our base van and then it has a full service and check over by our in house mechanic team.

12 month MOT. Low mileage, a mechanical guarantee and a lifetime guarantee on the conversion build its self.

🏎️ Cruise control and the rest of the usual well thought out Mercedes conveniences.

🏎️ Exterior Paint – Painted all over in a muted pink, the pics don’t do it justice but this van is a light pink colour all over with lavender stripes that wrap around the back doors and black raptor paint on the lower parts.

Creative writing –

Ready to sweep you off your feet, here’s a sweet treat! We are proud to present, “Cotton Candy Clouds”- our magical mystical wonder Van! Our latest van showcases our innovative designs and interpretation of wanderlust and fascination, rain or shine!

Imagine yourself as the new owner of this dream van! As the clouds disperse, and the sun shines brightly for a new day, your spirit reawakens from a great night’s sleep in a supersized bed and premium memory foam mattress, which extends on lock out sliders for extra room and extra luxury.

You peer out of the open van doors and feel the crisp morning air dancing around you while the colours of the sky change from pink to blue. In fact, the sky matches the exterior colours of the van, painted in four different types of pink, including the comforting Dorchester pink. This highly pigmented formula adds personality and tranquillity to the van. You hear the birds singing their joyous songs, the trees wiggle and shake as the woodland creatures begin to stir, and the beauty your wild surrounding set your heart on alight.

You glide over to the gorgeous ceramic farmhouse sink to fill up your kettle to make a cosy cup of tea with local fresh milk you’ve stored in the fridge. From your first sip, you are instantly relaxed. After having a peaceful start to the morning, you grab some flour and eggs, placing them on the solid oak worktop to create the most perfect breakfast pancakes. All the pots and pans have easy access in the soft close magnet lock doors and drawers paired with the chunky D&R infinity handles, inspired from one of nature’s very own geometric shapes. The natural clay tiles are the last of a handmade batch from Morocco, further awakening your senses to mystery in the air, bursting with happiness, new beginnings, and the potential adventures that await you.

You may decide to begin with a bike ride, so you head round the back to the spacious garage area, grabbing your beach gear and helmet to take a ride down the beach. When you return to the van, you can stow your gear into the back. If you’ve worked up a sweat, rinse off in the instant hot water outdoor shower that is easily accessible, and a warm welcome after a work-out. OR you can pop inside and utilize the super sneaky shower located under one of the bench seats. Simply lift the copper shower rail, hook it onto the ceiling- and voilà! You have an inside shower, with space for the Thetford 365 toilet as well.

All clean and refreshed, it’s time for an afternoon snack! The Lagun table leg is perfect for placing your charcuterie board for afternoon tasty delights, and perhaps a glass or two of your favourite tipple. It’s quiet out with no one around. You are off-grid and have the coast to yourself.

You’ll love the huge solar capacity and massive Bluetooth Victron power system giving you the freedom to connect to unlimited power. You can put your feet up and relax on the lucky horseshoe bench seats with 10cm thick memory foam pads, which also turn into a second bed area with the extra cushions.

Later, as you’re engrossed in the enchanting hues of sunset, you enjoy your favourite film and grab a blanket from the easily accessible overhead storage. You get tucked into bed and appreciate the beautifully detailed ceiling strip lights with natural LEDs that can be dimmed by a smartphone or remote switch, both overhead and in the garage. Another one of our favourite elements includes the huge Dometic Heki 2 window above the bed- perfect for stargazing the night away.

Sleep warmly and stay cosy with the click of a button! A Truma heater with an LCD screen and timer have been installed for comfort in colder months, or the Max Air Fan for the occasional heat of those English summers. This van has privacy tint with blackout windows and blinds to ensure a great night’s rest. You can also rest easy, knowing that the van has an electrical safety certificate, weight check and gas safe certificate, making it ready to roll (or rent if you choose).

This van has a mains hook-up to charge the battery, run the fridge and heater all from hook up power. A 25ltr interior wastewater storage, 75ltr underslung freshwater storage, and a 25ltr Underslung refillable LPG tank can be accessed at the convenience of the valves at the side of the van.

We will you find our creation well equipped, feature-rich, and full of extraordinary marvels. We can’t promise bright skies every day, but we can provide a transformative, ultra-rare and spectacular experience with this Cotton Candy Cloud.

Find a beautiful place to expand and nourish your soul. Oh, the places you’ll go!

The exterior of the van is painted all over in a muted pink lavender colour (looks amazing up close and need to be seen to be appreciated) with raptor black down low and lavender pink stripes on the side.
