This vehicle is a Ford Freda badged Mazda Bongo. (Exactly the same vehicle). First registered in 1995 so not so young but in great condition. Under the bonnet is 2.5 L Turbo diesel engine with automatic transmission. This is such a lovely easy vehicle to drive as it is automatic and the size of an estate car. Parking is especially easy due to the large screen on board parking camera. The roof pops up electronically to create a sleeping area for two. Kids will love "the den" effect! But also a cosy space for two adults. The rear bench seat in the main cabin is a "rock and roll" bed creating a three quarter double. There is a two ring Camping Gaz cooker and a sink with water on tap. When hooked up via a camp site's electricity you can also use the micro wave that is supplied and the 13 amp, 3 pin sockets inside the vehicle. An alfresco folding camping table and seats and 2 fold up camping chairs for chilling with a glass of wine are also included. All pots, pans, frying pan, kettle, crockery , cutlery and cooking utensils are also included . Together washing and cleaning items. You just need to bring personal stuff like wash kits with towels and sleeping bags etc. There is a blue tooth connector so you can play your own tunes. (The radio has a CD slot if you know what CDs are?) There are two USB ports for phone charging . Please note the vehicle plan shows the passenger seat turning. On this vehicle it does not turn to face the rear. The vehicle also has the benefit of a tow bar should that be required. Safety: There is a dual Smoke and Carbon Monoxide detector fitted A Fire blanket and Fire extinguisher.

Cancellation policy:

The little Blue Bongo is not young but drives beautifully. Please treat with care it cruises along nicely between 60 mph and 70 mph. Pulls up hills very well even has a low and a slow gear. Very easy to park. Especially, with the large onboard reversing camera. If you can please don't wear shoes inside the cabin. I know its difficult so I'm not precious. But it will make for cleanliness for you and future clients. I realise you will wear shoes in the driving and passenger positions.

Our week away in Bob’s Blue Bongo was absolutely fantastic! The van drives wonderfully and is very easy to use. It had everything we needed and was really comfortable. Bob was so helpful before, during and after our trip. Would definitely recommend and would love to do it again next summer! Jay and Alice

My partner and me had 6 awesome days with Bob's camper. We, although being quite big, fit in both sleeping options. Air circulation worked well to cool the van down in the evening. And while being spacey the van is small and agile enough for all those winding country roads we encountered. Easily mangeable even for those unaccustomed to left side traffic. Bob was very friendly, helpful and relaxed- we would gladly again use his van!

I had an absolutely wonderful time in Bob's camper van and would definitely recommend it to anyone. I was on my own for some of the time, and found it easy to drive into Wales where I had a peaceful time - it was comfortable and had everything I needed.
