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 StorySaul 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
