A lovingly converted Moroccan inspired bespoke camper van that we’ll be very sad to part with. Named Esmerelda, she’s an Approved ‘Quirky Camper’ featured on the ‘Quirky Campers’ website for the past 5 years. She is fully equipped and perfect for tours and romantic weekend getaways alike.
There is attention to detail throughout with many personal touches that you’ll only find in a hand-built conversion like this. The concealed kitchen hob and sink, the tidy overhead storage lockers, secret valuables drawer, curtains and Moroccan wall lights are considered with both beauty and function in mind.
As an extra-practical feature – and possibly unlike any other conversion in this category, the conversion has been designed to allow all the floor units (Kitchen, cupboard, chiller, centre-table and bed) to be either stowed against the van walls or removed completely to transform her into a great load-space. So much so that we’ve used her to move house 4 times and I’ve carried eight 13ft scaffold planks back from the timber merchant before now!
As a rental camper, we have always been keeping on top of mechanical gremlins that you might otherwise expect for a camper of this age – always with the philosophy of preventative maintenance only using quality replacement parts. For us, renting her through Quirky Campers has been a great help pay for this. We’ve had some lovely feedback in the guestbook too from our customers over the years.
Purchase of this camper therefore comes with a potential business opportunity if you so wish. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
The vehicle has a full service history detailing her new dual-mass clutch and flywheel assembly (still under warranty), starter motor, brake pads, re-spray work, bodywork, waxoyl chassis treatment and so on. See below for the technical spec.
Couldn't have been more comfortable...Can't wait for the next trip!

Fab views, basic camping, but everything you need here in Esmerelda.
Thank you so much. Took it to Glastonbury and had the best nights sleep of any festival.
Thank you for being ever-so cosy and a lovely self-contained host with all we needed
Comfortable and spacious but also nimble enough to fit down the smallest of Devonshire lanes.
Facilities and design of Esmerelda is impeccable - attention to the smallest detail evident.
