You’ll not often see craftsmanship of this level in a van for hire, but even if you’re not a cabinetmaker or upholsterer yourself you can’t fail to notice the beauty of those cupboards and seats.
There’s a big sofa/bed downstairs and a foldaway bunk up top that could take one adult or two children, plus a pop-up roof to give plenty of headroom.
And if you love to cycle (or need somewhere to dry wetsuits!) you can add on the four-bike carrier at the back.
Rex has a powerful engine but is still compact and economical, so he’ll eat up the motorway miles and navigate country lanes with ease.
Rex is kitted out with everything you need, and the owner was lovely. Highly recommended
So easy to drive and set up. And beautiful too. Especially loved the matching blue kettle and the touch LED lights. x
Thank you so much - everyone needs to experience this great way of hiring campervans!
