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

Salubrious Saul has everything you need for the perfect family holiday in all seasons. The kids will adore climbing into their own enclosed private bunk 'cabins' - and while they're sleeping you can enjoy a glass of wine in the dining area.

He comes with a fixed Fiamma bike rack suitable for 2 bikes and a canvas canopy awning so you can make the most of the outdoors come rain or shine. (There's nothing more soothing than hearing the rain fall as you drink a hot cup of something, toasty & dry under Saul's shelter.)

With a light & airy country cottage feel, Saul is a home from home, equipped with powerful fridge and a woodburner, he even boasts his very own mini Belfast Sink.

Saul the handcrafted campervan is based in Easton, Bristol, but is ready to take you all over the UK and into Europe. (I wonder if you could navigate using his gorgeous map-print blinds & curtains!)

    Conversion Story

    Saul was designed and created by Barrell of Monkeys in Frome, after buying him I made a few alterations to suit my needs including more electrical points, installing a fridge, solar panel, skylight and a few more storage solutions with the help of my brother Sam creator of Luna and co-creator of Maya, my first Quirky Camper. I bought Saul with my family in mind as we had outgrown Maya and I didn't have the time to build a new van from scratch. He was a very lucky find as vans of this calibre don't often show up on ebay
