Hector

Hector has been meticulously transformed into a spacious camper offering glamping without the compromises - and with a sense of humour!

In a former life, Hector was a removals van, and he still has the Luton look but with a real door and window at the back and plenty of quirky comfort inside.

He is very well kitted out with a luxurious wet-room featuring shower and toilet, a woodburner, a big kitchen including running water and 4-hob gas oven, and there are 3 solar panels on the roof to provide power.

Thanks to his size, he offers permanent sleeping and seating areas, so you don't need to do any folding-up or folding-down at bedtime: just move effortlessly from enjoying your book and glass of wine at the table, to flopping onto the huge bed.

We just love his rainbow kitchen tiles and the cheeky Royal portrait in the living area, and we can't think of any better way to enjoy a morning cuppa than sitting on the sun on Hector's back porch.

Built with love and care, he is the perfect vehicle for a life on the road in the comfort of a king.
Hector is exactly as he looks on the website, his owner is absolutely amazing to deal with. Totally recommend it
