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.
