Maureen

Just like Brighton where she lives, Maureen is a bit retro, a bit kitsch and great for a holiday with family or friends. Whether you’re heading to the seaside, countryside or a festival, you’ll have loads of fun with cheeky Maureen.

She has a ‘shabby chic’ seaside look so that you can almost smell the salty air, wherever you are parked up. We especially love the loo, with its vintage newspapers on the walls, curly ironmongery and adorable little cabinet.

With beds for up to four adults or children, a full kitchen with fridge, 12v charging points for all your digital goodies and storage space enough for all your family’s needs or your finest festival gladrags, Maureen has everything you need for a proper British holiday – just add fish and chips!

Conversion Story

This van was all grey carpet on the walls and fake horrible upholstery everywhere when I bought it, so I set about thinking of a theme. I came up with a retro/vintage idea as Brighton is famous for that, then slowly it turned into a completely Brighton-themed retro campervan, with everything having a hint of or being intrinsically Brighton based! I lived in Brighton for 20 years, so I really loved the job and the research I did to find all the little things to make this van a superb conversion.
