Minty has 5 belted seats and thanks to her pop-top, can sleep 2 adults and 2 children. All this comes in a compact package; anyone who has driven a T5 will tell you it’s not too different to driving a car.
So why not chuck your beach towels in the back, slip into her luxuriously upholstered seats and drive off to another place and time.
Minty is so much more than a vehicle & I feel so much more than a "renter"
great fun, well equipped and super economical.
