Totally unique Mitsubishi Delica, charming, practical, 4 wheel drive and a total tardis! She is small enough so can get down and up windy lanes and mountain tracks. Perfect for exploring wales as well as getting around town. (She fits in a normal parking space!)
The main bed sleeps two tall people comfortably and the downstairs bed another two. As a Japanese import space is maximised at every opportunity. Jelly bean is compact but clever design makes her a great little van with loads of personality.

It's fair to say that Jelly Bean is showing her age in places, and setting up the lower bed is slightly awkward (but very comfortable with the mattress topper provided).
There is only an electric night heater which is great if hooked up, but not useful if you're off grid (we just ran the engine for a short while when getting cosy on cold nights). There was also an issue with the water tank, again probably due to it being the first outing of the season.
On the whole the interior is functional (the on board loo is very useful with current restrictions preventing campsites opening communal facilities) and once we'd adapted to the compact dimensions, we were comfortable as a family of 4.
Despite the issues, Jelly Bean totally charmed us overall and we enjoyed the holiday. Absolutely amazing to drive, I love sitting over the front wheel like an old VW. She copes well with bumpy tracks, windy lanes as well as motorways (she can overtake lorries with relative ease). The speedo is in kmph (and seemingly slightly underreads, maybe due to the aftermarket wheels?) so I'd recommend a sat nav/Google Maps which shows correct speed in mph to avoid any confusion (or speeding tickets!).
We'd definitely like to hire her again some time.
