Meet Rex, our very reliable and economical to drive campervan that has everything you'll need for trips near and far!
We used to have a motorhome but decided to downsize to Rex as we tend to do road trips, moving on daily and we like to freecamp where possible. It's so much easier to drive Rex and he fits in a normal parking spot so parking is a breeze and we have everything we need.
He's a 2 Berth Ford Transit Leisuredrive conversion with power steering, remote central locking, Drivers Airbag and a Dashcam installed. He has a high top so easy to stand up inside and gives the feeling of more room.
There's two comfortable seats up front with space in between and you can get in the main part of the campervan from the cab without having to get out of the van, this is great when you park up and it's raining. There's a Kenwood sound system with radio/CD/iPod connectivity and DVD player in the cab with speakers in the back. If you have very long legs (over 6ft) then the drivers seat doesn't adjust too far back so Rex may not be for you.
There's a table and seating area with enough room for 4 people and this converts into a bed. The bed measures 5ft 9 x 3ft 7 so if you’re long-legged you may need to sleep with bent legs. There's a TV/DVD player with an aerial (runs off leisure battery) so you can watch this either in the sitting area or when in bed. The best bit of the bed though is if you're in a really scenic place with warm weather you can fling the back doors open and lie in bed looking at the beautiful scenery! There's plenty of lights in the back and three plug points in the van.
The kitchen area consists of a 2 ring Smev gas hob, sink with running water, small microwave which works when plugged into the 240v hook up, a fridge that runs off the leisure battery and can also be plugged into the mains (long cable included) Fire Blanket, Fire Extinguisher and carbon monoxide alarm are fitted for your safety.
Plenty of storage space (under rear seats, above the cab, in the cupboard, if not hiring the loo then under the seat and above rear doors. All the kitchen essentials you’re going to need when camping are included along with two camping chairs and a table for use outside.
There's a portaloo (extra fee of £10 applies) so you won’t get caught short..!!
Rex will come with a warm air electric heater which will work when you have a 240v mains hook up.
You can also hire a dome gazebo with fly-screen which is great and very easy to erect (it's pop up so takes only a minute or two to erect) so if the weather is not the best you can still be outside with a 360degree view while staying dry or in the evenings you can enjoy your location while being protected from being eaten alive by insects. This is an extra £25 per hire/week.
- Kitchen unit
Suitable for tall people
- Side facing seats
- Dining area
- 2 Berths (Convertible bed 2p)
We would hope you love Rex as much as we do and you look after him as if he's your own. No smoking inside the van and if raining if you can take muddy shoes off before getting in the van.
You will collect Rex with a full tank of diesel so please return with a full tank, also if hiring the portaloo this will need emptying and cleaning before returning. This is easier to do at a campsite. Please do not use a drive through car wash, we will clean on return.
We allow well behaved dogs and ask that they don't get up on the seats.
Thanks very much :) !
The deposit for this camping vehicle is £1,000. The deposit will be returned to you after the rental period.
Rex is reliable, a smooth drive and a nice size. He has all amenities needed - optional portaloo, stove, bed and lighting. We brought a portable electric heater which we used when we were connected to electric hookups and it kept us toasty in late October.
We would really recommend Rex - but maybe ask Dan & Chrissy about their other camper Bessy if you’re taller than 5’8 as the bed might be a little short for you. However me (5’4) & James (6ft) did manage to find sleeping positions that was comfy for us both.
Thanks for a fantastic week away Rex, Chrissy & Dan!
