Note: The hire of this vehicle is arranged by Quirky Campers ltd acting as the agent on behalf of Magic Mike'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.
If you're looking for rustic charm, Mike has it all, from his chunky woodwork, to the compact kitchen, to the leaded, stained glass cupboard doors and of course the cosy bed with all the blankets. You're sure to get admiring comments from your campsite neighbours.
That bed, by the way, is just the right size for two, but with 5 seats and swivelling seats that create a comfy socialising space, Mike has room for families and friends if you take a tent as well (and happily there's plenty of storage space for all your gear).
Mike has powerful LED lights throughout, diesel-powered heating, 240v mains hook-up, plus running water, grill, and hob. And, as he's based in east London, you're only a couple of hour's travel from the Norfolk Broads, South Down and New Forest.
Wherever you go with Mike and whatever you do, you're guaranteed to create memories that will last forever.
