Note: The hire of this vehicle is arranged by Quirky Campers ltd acting as the agent on behalf of Raelene's owners. We make every effort to ensure that all the vehicles listed with us are of a high standard but cannot guarantee the condition of the vehicle. If you experience any problems please notify us as soon as possible.

Campervan conversions are all about using clever design to fit a lot into a small space, but this conversion takes it to the next level. Fitting a double bed, kitchen, toilet AND shower into a medium wheel base van, while retaining a sense of spaciousness should be impossible, but then Raelene’s creator is no average guy. A Master Craftsman with design genius that Trevor Bayliss would have been proud of, he turns fantasy into reality (while barely putting pen to paper).

Behold the glorious Raelene! The perfect getaway vehicle for two. Head off from Peterborough to… well wherever the fancy takes you. She's a fully off-grid vehicle with solar panels, underslung water tanks, gas heating and hot water and the cleverest pop up toilet and shower you've ever seen. So you needn’t be constrained by what facilities are available. Park up anywhere and your home on wheels will provide.
