ElviraElvira is a van for adventurers and free spirits. There’s so much to explore in her – the big, wide world of course, but also her fun, one-of-a-kind interior. She’s been hand-converted super creatively, with a myriad of reclaimed bits and bobs: just flick through the photos to see all the magic touches and theatrical flourishes. You’ll make your meals on a vintage enamel stove; drink from metal wine goblets; and brush your teeth in a copper sink that used to be a preserving pan.
There's lots of storage space (including a cutlery drawer made from an antique shop till!), three belted seats and a bed for two. The bed folds away to give oodles of space in daytime so you can draw, make music, pull on your hiking boots, get your festival gladrags on – whatever takes your fancy.
In the evening, pull the velvet curtains, relax onto the sumptuous cushions, and keep warm with the gorgeous woodburner. There’s room for one or two people to stretch out, or for many more to sit and socialise. We particularly love the multi-coloured lighting that lets you choose the perfect hue for the atmosphere you want (it can even do stripes!).
