We had a week with Maggie and had a great time. Nice setup inside and plenty of space for us and a lively Newfoundland!Gary ~ September 2018
Note: The hire of this vehicle is arranged by Quirky Campers ltd acting as the agent on behalf of Maggie'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.
Her owner is a keen climber, skier and surfer and he’s converted Maggie with masses of storage that’s cleverly hidden away so you can have room to enjoy the generously sized kitchen with its full size fridge, stainless steel hob and butlers-style sink, without having to climb over bikes or boards. And with a triple insulation and a high-end heating system, this van is highly recommended for winter sports as well as summer sun.
You can stretch out your legs in that spacious dining area, with solid wood table and worktops, or open up the awning to extend the living space into the big wide world. Three belted seats and a truly super king size bed make Maggie ideal for a couple, for friends or for a family with small child.

Conversion StoryMaggie was converted by Harry's Custom Campers and is the company's "show vehicle".
She was designed to the specification of the owner of the business who is a keen climber, skier and surfer, so you will find plenty of storage for sports equipment in the massive "garage" at the back. The owner has previously owned VW Campers but struggled with the lack of space on longer trips so decided to build something with lots of space and a modern, open feeling.
Maggie took around 9 weeks from start to finish and has had no expense spared. She has triple layered insulation to allow the freedom of using her all year round, including ski/snowboard trips. She has an underslung gas tank to save space and a top-of-the-range gas and electric heating system. You will also find a massive fresh water tank onboard so you need not worry about where you can fill up. She has dual leisure batteries, a total of 270amps and a 150watt solar panel to keep them topped up - perfect for wild camping and fully immersing yourself in nature, or giving you the added freedom on any trip.
