Fell in love with campervanning in 2016 after spending 10 days in a van. Absolutely loved it! When our foreign holiday was cancelled in 2020 we hired a van again and then decided to take the plunge and buy one. Jimmy has a 12 v coolbox as the fridge he came with did not cool unless on EHU (we have ordered a 12v fridge which will hopefully be delivered/installed soon but the coolbox is amazing!), two ring burner, grill, sink with cold water, diesel heater and lots of storage. Basic cooking utensils, cutlery and crockery are provided (we once hired a van where no glasses or teaspoons were provided - we will make sure everything is there!!). A small fold-up BBQ can also be supplied. Electric hook-up (EHU) for 240v. Inverter if needed when not on EHU. Leisure battery and one 12v plug. We have just had solar fitted which should help the lights and 12v stay topped up. We have invested in a diesel heater which is lovely and toasty and you do not need EHU for this. We also have a small electric heater for when EHU available. There is a 3/4 size rock and roll bed in the main cabin and a poptop which will sleep 2 children. My son is 5'8" and struggles up there though so I wouldn't suggest it is suitable for teenagers and above. The awning has a sleeping compartment which can accommodate 2 people (beds to be supplied by the customer) but it is not the most robust of tents so I would not advise this other than in the summer and therefore have not included in the sleeping capacity. But is good for storage and sitting in when raining. You can plug your phone into the radio and play your music. I love driving Jimmy. I was really nervous the first time but actually prefer driving him to driving my car.

We had a fantastic time at a festival in Jimmy, booking process and correspondence all excellent, if you haven't drove a van before don't let that put you off Jimmy is easy to drive

Just back from being snowed in/trapped/stranded at The Tan Hill Inn with Jimmy. Fully equipped, reliable and perfect for an adventure. He held up in the snow and kept us lovely and warm. Van is clean and owners are exceptional, being more than understanding at our lateness in returning as it was so well documented in the media. Great communication and highly recommend. Pictures here to show how he is famous for being part of the lock in due to the snow! Thank you

We had a lovely long weekend in the Cotswolds with Jimmy Twist! He behaved beautifully and gave us no bother at all. Great, quirky camper that had everything we needed. Warm and cosy with the heater and the awning to shelter us from some of the wind and rain. Sean and Anne gave us all the information we needed and were very flexible with collection and drop off. Fun times and would definitely recommend.
