Indie

Scandinavian Styling meets pure comfort in this long wheel base modern campervan available for hire from London. Indie drives light and easy - you might be forgiven for thinking you’re driving a much smaller vehicle. She boasts a toasty wood burner and logs with every hire. With solar panels and a roof rack for surfboards you might want to go totally off-grid, but there's the option of mains hook up should you need it.

Her owners, a photographer and a TV Director, spent months perfecting her design, What they have achieved is a sense of spaciousness, a quiet beauty, plenty of storage and a solid kitchen which would be the envy of many a London apartment! Perfect for family glamping trips, she has 4 belted seats, a double bed and bunk above the main bed.

Conversion Story

Indie started life as a panel van used to transport light goods and over the period of two months was converted into the camper she is today. Designed by their owners and built by a boat builder, wood was the primary theme. To get the log cabin effect they white washed the walls and used a black stain on the floor. The wooden log burner was safely installed with protective surrounds. Rusted Aluminium surrounds the fire completing the rustic feel to the van. We scoured ebay and found a three point seat belt ambulance seat for the extra seat in the back.
