Description

Hi, my name is Rex and I love adventures and meeting new people! While my owners have taken me on some great trips around the UK I'd like to see more so maybe you could take me out? I’m a 2 Berth Ford Transit Leisuredrive conversion with power steering, remote central locking, drivers airbag and a dashcam installed. I've been told I drive really well. Also because I'm a short wheeled based van I'm quite easy to drive if you're not used to driving big vehicles, I also fit easily into most parking spaces making it easy when stopping off at places, however, I am quite tall which means I feel relatively roomy inside for my size and even tall people can stand up in me without hitting their head on my roof! My owner used to work for a Ford Main Dealer so I am regularly maintained and looked after and touch wood, I've not broken down. I'm also economical to run. There's two comfortable seats up front with space in between for your pooch 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. I also have a Kenwood sound system with radio/CD/iPod connectivity and DVD player in the cab with speakers in the camper so you can listen to music when camping or have them in the cab. (No watching DVD's while driving though!). If you have very long legs then the drivers seat doesn't adjust too far back so that's one thing to consider...I've had 6ft tall people drive me and they said it was fine but something to bear in mind. To make your camping trip a bit more civilised I come with 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) and a TV/DVD player with an aerial so you don’t miss your favourite soaps while you’re away (runs off leisure battery). I also have an electric warm air heater which works when you have a 240v mains hook up. There's also a collection of DVD's you can watch. I have 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 the long-legged variety you may need to sleep with bent legs. But the best bit is, if you're in a really scenic place with warm weather you can fling my doors open and lie in bed looking at the beautiful scenery! I have plenty of lights in the back and two plug points. Fire Blanket and Fire Extinguisher 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. I come with crockery and cutlery, pans, plastic drinking cups, mugs, a chopping board in fact all the essentials you’re going to need when camping. My owners will include two camping chairs and a table for when you’d like to eat/drink outside. I also have a portaloo (extra cleaning fee applies if you use it and it will need emptying before returning it - most campsites have the facilities) so you won’t get caught short! We welcome well-behaved dogs (extra £10 cleaning fee per dog) as long as you bring your own blankets/towels to cover the soft furnishings. Free parking of your car at our address while you're on your travels.

Cancellation policy:

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 :) !

From the moment we applied to hire Rex Danny was so kind and helpful. He kept in contact and explained everything we had to do, a couple of days before we collected Rex we also got a list of everything in the camper and instructions on how to use it all.- which was so helpful when we were packing. When we went to collect it Danny immediately put us at ease and was so kind and went through everything in the camper explaining and showing us how to use the appliances. Making sure we didn’t have any questions and we were happy with everything. He also made it very clear that we could contact him if we had any problems. Rex is a fantastic camper and we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. 100% would recommend to anyone who was thinking about hiring a caravan. Thank you so much we will be back again.

Chrissy & Danny were really helpful & communication was 100% Rex was perfectly kitted out & was comfy to drive & easy to park. After two weeks away I felt sad handing back the keys! Thank you Chrissy & Danny
