Conversion Story

Rosie Daisy (named by our 2 year old daughter) started life as a mini bus servicing Dagenham’s elderly and disabled before she emigrated for a much simpler life living on a small farm in Norfolk. Bought in December 2016 she was completely stripped back inside and out and lovingly converted over 6 months to provide spacious accommodation for our family. She boasts 3 double beds, 5 belted seats, hot & cold running water, grill/oven/hob, fridge/freezer and heater amongst other camping luxuries.

We have taken great care to turn Rosie Daisy into a comfortable individually crafted living space. We use the bus for our family’s accommodation whilst working away at festivals and it really suits our needs as a young family in a festival environment as well as being perfect for winter adventures. The layout of the van means it's multifunctional without the hassle of folding beds & tables away and there is still plenty of storage space. The subtle dimmable lighting and crystal clear sound system make for the perfect evening in to unwind.

Travelling with Children

Rosie Daisy is suitable for travelling with children.

There are many places for little people to sleep in Rosie Daisy, however the most popular with our little ones is the top double bunk which has a removable cot rail. The fixed bottom bunk is quite well enclosed if you prefer them closer by and the removable double bed is a continuous extension of the bottom bunk making it a huge area for the whole family to enjoy. When sleeping tinies we have used a travel cot in the past, if you are unsure if your travel cot will fit please just ask.
Whilst traveling with child seats we remove the table however some people when using just booster seats leave the table in place. The physical seats themselves are tested safe. Child seats are not included.
