Note: The hire of this vehicle is arranged by Quirky Campers ltd acting as the agent on behalf of Serenity'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.
Now living in Bristol, with a compact exterior and a cleverly flexible interior, Serenity is just as suited to a romantic trip for two as to taking a family of 4 adventuring through the countryside & coastlines of the South West (or further afield!)
Although simple & rustic in feel, Serenity has enough mod cons to keep everyone 'serene' - with a handy reversing camera, bluetooth speaker, gas heating, and luxurious memory foam mattress topper for the double bed.
