Note: The hire of this vehicle is arranged by Quirky Campers ltd acting as the agent on behalf of Genie'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.
Genie has all the features of a motorhome but the style, comfort and beauty of a quirky camper. She's designed with families in mind but would also suit a group of friends, or stowaway the bunk and she's perfect for a couple. Her 3-sided seating area is perfect for lounging with a drink while gazing out at the view, or for family games when it rains, or delicious meals whipped up in the kitchen (which even has an oven).
Surrounded by windows, you'll feel like you're in nature, but with all the comfort of a proper bed. But when you want privacy (or darkness) just pull the beautifully handmade curtains closed.
The perfect family holiday no longer has to be a pipe dream, just conjure up Genie!

SeatingTwo front seats with M1 tested swivel bases. three second row coach seats, these are belted and tested from the donor minibus. Summary, 5 three point belted seats, all forward facing. Second row are designed for children so foot room is limited on the outside two seats. We all fit in them (6' adults) but not sure how far we would like to travel in them! This is designed for family, two up front, up to three out back. The center seat has more leg room so three adults would be no trouble.
Conversion StoryThe van was a super clean, low mileage minibus. I converted it myself this summer. Lots of high quality materials, Birch ply which has been treated with lots of Danish oil and Black Bison wax. Conversion took a couple of months flat out with nice light evenings so able to keep going until 10pm most nights.
