Finn

Finn is a classy, Scandinavian-style conversion in a modern, powerful Mercedes Vito, so he has the agility and efficiency of a normal car but with a beautiful space for two people to relax in when you arrive at your destination.

His surprisingly spacious interior features a massive bed (extends to king size), beautiful kitchenette, a super sleek stove that cleverly runs directly from the fuel tank, fridge, porta-potty, plenty of storage space and even a sink with running water.

Finn is carefully designed with dozens of clever details to make life easier, all finished with exceptional craftsmanship in beautiful oak, cedar and pine tongue and groove.

There is a solar panel to charge the leisure battery which runs the tap, fridge and the LED lighting throughout, plus specially made sail bags for storage under the bed. The stove is for both cooking and heating so he's perfect for adventures in any weather.

With Finn, you can have the ultimate hassle-free holiday: park up, fling open the side doors, take a deep breath of fresh air and give yourself the break you deserve.
