Note: The hire of this vehicle is arranged by Quirky Campers ltd acting as the agent on behalf of Gino's owners.

If you experience any problems please notify us as soon as possible.
Inside Gino, you will find a large, rustic-feel kitchen area with two-burner hob, fridge box and plenty of space for pots, pans and food. Because Gino used to be a minibus, you will be able to take in a view from all sides as you cook up a storm – it’s like al fresco dining without actually being outside! Of course, as one of the main benefits of camper van holidays is being outdoors - you can also hire a camping chair and table set as an optional extra, to soak up the rays!
The large, comfy seating area at the back of the van transforms as night into a double bed. The seating also houses two, very big storage areas for all of your clothes and bedding. In the day time, you can chill out and relax, and play some of the games that come with Gino when you hire him. At night, you can also make use of the complimentary fire-pit - so make sure you pack some marshmallows for compulsory campfire toasting as you wrap up and take in the starry night sky.
This gorgeous camper van lives in Overton, Hampshire. So, you can easily get to him from London on the train – he’s just 5 minutes off of the M3. Whether you’re planning a south coast holiday, maybe a trip to the Isle of Wight, or even a jaunt oversees to Europe, Gino will definitely deliver an epic, home from home campervan rental holiday you'll never want to end!

Conversion StoryAfter renting a camper van from Quirky Campers last year, we were inspired to convert a van of our own and the search for the perfect vehicle began. Gino was a tired looking disability minibus, but with the space and specifications we were looking for, we were excited to transform him into a cosy and practical home from home.
We have enjoyed taking on the whole conversion process - from insulation and cladding to interior design! Gino really has been a labour of love. Working on and off over evenings and weekends, Gino has taken many months to perfect, but we are so happy with the results and we can't wait for other campers to experience the comfort and warmth that Gino provides.
