We would like to thank Carole and Martin for entrusting us with their lovely camper van. We collected the vehicle with a smooth and professional handover by Carole. The van is well equipped with everything needed for our week in Cornwall. My wife and I are a little on the short side so we were comfortable on the bottom bed - however if you are above 5.8” the top bunk is the better place to sleep. We had our own drive away awning which was essential really to keep all our stuff out the van. The van was easy to drive and quite economical. We did the 500 miles on one tank. Handing the vehicle back was also very smooth, however getting back from Cornwall for 12.00 and cleaning the vehicle before the return meant a very early start. Overall though a great experience and we would recommend Carole and her camper to anyone.

We took Dora for a week travelling round Cornwall and can't rate it highly enough. The van was a great drive, had been recently and thoughtfully refurbished and the bed was super comfortable (we only used 1 but there are two). Carole had provided everything needed for a trip away and couldnt have been more accomodating, dropping the van off at the airport before setting off and meeting us at the station when leaving. All round excellent experience and will be renting again. Thanks for a great trip Carole.
