Yuki

Yuki means ‘happiness’ in Japanese, and you can’t fail to be delighted at how this diminutive home on wheels comfortably hosts up to 4 people. No longer or wider than an average people carrier, she has everything you need to make your adventure a treat, including built-in gas hob, sink, electric fridge and some nifty storage solutions. She sleeps two adults on the extra-long and comfortable rock and roll bed down below and two children or one adult up in the electric elevating roof. She is a Mazda Bongo, and this provided the inspiration for a complete Japanese makeover; ink style paintings over chalk wash cover the cabinets, her upholstery and curtains are done in exquisite Japanese fabrics and her chilli red floor completes the look. She has the functionality to match, with electric blinds, air con, funky neon lighting and tinted windows. She is a doddle to drive with her automatic gear box and power steering and comes complete with a built in solar panel and leisure battery so you never run out of power (providing the sun shines!).

Conversion Story

Originally imported from Japan, Yuki was once sported a traditional grey factory fitted interior but over the winter of 2016 we gave her a makeover, with a splash of colour inspired by her oriental roots. First we chalk washed and then hand painted the cupboard fronts, with Japanese inspired koi carp and bamboo designs. We then sealed this with 5 layers of lacquer. We fitted deep red curtains printed with images from the Moon Rabbit (Tsuki no Usagi) legend and also re-upholstered the bed and seats with a Japanese temple print.
