Note: The hire of this vehicle is arranged by Quirky Campers ltd acting as the agent on behalf of Bodhi'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.
Bodhi has 2 permanent benches that sit either side of a table that slides out the base of the bed. This makes him perfect for dining, playing games, or sheltering from the elements with a hot mug of coffee. The fixed bed means that there is no faffing late at night, or early in the morning when you're keen to move on to your next destination.
Bodhi comes with a projector, tripod and a USB full of movies. The image is projected onto the white hatch that separates the living area and the cab, which can be left down during the day to enjoy views out the front of the van and allow for natural light to shine in. At night, close the hatch, make some popcorn on the stove, and snuggle into one of the cosy throws found in the storage basket under the bed.
For added comfort, there is an option to hire a portable toilet that tucks away into its own cupboard under one of the benches. There is also a portable shower kit available to hire, which includes a pop-up cubicle, a collapsible shower bucket, and a rechargeable shower head/pump (which is also very handy to hose off muddy dogs!)
Bodhi's electricity comes from leisure batteries that are charged via the alternator when driving. There are 2 UK plug sockets and 1 USB socket in the living area, as well as 2 USB ports in the 12V cigarette lighter in the cab.
The 6 LED lights in the ceiling are wired in pairs, allowing for you to light up the bed area, the kitchen area, or the dining area independently, or having the option to turn on all 3 switches and light the whole van.
Although comfy and modern on the inside, Bodhi is stealthy from the outside, with low profile vents on the roof, and a tinted side window.

Conversion StoryBodhi was converted from a well looked after workman's van to our incredible camper in early 2019 by my amazing carpenter Dad.
The inspiration behind Bodhi occurred after many amazing (but soggy) adventures Ross and I had travelling and sleeping in a tent, watching van owners with envy as they hid away from the elements inside their little havens with a brew in hand, and drove away to their next location at a moment's notice. Necessity truly is the mother of invention!
Bodhi was designed to be bright, airy and practical; to provide us with what we need to embrace a feeling of cosy contentment, whilst exploring and enjoying the simple things in life at our own pace. The design is inspired by a mixture of coastal tranquillity and Scandinavian simplicity, with upholstered panels and features throughout.
