Guinevere

Self-sufficient Guinevere is everything you love about festivals! She’s got music, fun hippy décor and loads of room to socialise, plus she has plenty of room to store warm clothes and for your muddy wellies to dry out. She's just built for fun, and perfect whether for any kind of adventure - festival-based or otherwise.
We love how she combines high-quality craftsmanship with a sense of humour - plus there are all the home comforts that grown-ups and kids need: a sink, fridge, gas hob, even a shower and optional toilet for 'no campsite required' exploring (or to save you from the horror of a midnight trip to the portaloos!). Guinevere is truly the Queen of Avalon.
