Wanda

Available to hire from just south of Birmingham in Worcestershire, Wanda is first and foremost an adventure campervan, built around her owners’ love of rock climbing, hiking, scrambling and all things outdoorsy. You'll find you can fit many ropes down the side cupboards and an entire trad rack in the back drawers if that's your thing. That said, they like their creature comforts too. The seating has been designed for maximum snuggling comfort and there's a surround-sound system complete with a television screen plug, so it’s perfect for a good old-fashioned film night. A super-efficient gas powered heating system means you don't have to wear long johns to keep toasty.

She's been built for versatile practicality - there are numerous hooks that you can move around to best suit your needs; whether it's to strap a dog crate to the floor whilst in transit or simply to hang a wash bag over the sink. You can adapt Wanda to suit your kind of adventure.

Her creators’ love for industrial geometric design means there are a lot of repurposed sustainable materials used with lots of lovely straight lines! These are softened up by an equal passion for cushions. You will find many of these along with warm blankets to wrap up in - to chill out by the fire pit or to make the getting up and putting on the first pot of coffee a little more bearable!
A true diamond, beautifully kitted out. I am in love with Wanda
