Highly recommend to anyone after a fantastic campervan... we didn't want to give her back!Rosa ~ September 2018
We had a great time in the campervan named Lily. The van was the perfect size & layout for our family of four.Liz D ~ October 2018
Note: The hire of this vehicle is arranged by Quirky Campers ltd acting as the agent on behalf of Lily'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 owners wanted Lily to be cosy & practicable, with all the creature comforts you do not want to miss on a weekend trip or even a longer holiday. With just 4 years old, Lily is reliable and very easy to drive. There is lots of storage space and the high roof provides that extra space to make you feel comfortable.
Lily allows you to be self-sufficient through solar panel, running water, a large fridge and a diesel cooker/heater. Enjoy a hassle-free setup for the night as all 4 bunks are fixed; the double-bed serves as a huddle space during the day. Open the sliding door and put up the awning to extend the living space to the outdoors.

Conversion StoryLily is the van Thorsten & Sabine wanted to have, but which was nowhere to be bought. They got infected with camper-van life when they spend two weeks in a motorhome in Iceland with their two boys. What a great way of spending your time, they thought, but while the rented motorhome was practical it wasn't really cosy. Inspired by a conversion using a layered bunk layout to sleep four, Thorsten & Sabine set off to build their dream van with a lot of cosy features. The goal was to build a van that could sleep a family of four, would offer enough private space for everyone, had all the features you would like to have a in a van and that was quick to set up for the night. Special materials like clay paint and sheep wool felt were used in the build and a lot of elements got a personal touch. Once you explore the van, you will come across details like owl imprints on the self-made curtains, USB sockets hidden in tea tins and many more. "We are really proud of what we created", says Thorsten, and Sabine adds: "A lot of passion and hard work went into the van, we learned so much in the process! It really became the Campervan we dreamed of!"
