Note: The hire of this vehicle is arranged by Quirky Campers ltd acting as the agent on behalf of Heidi'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.

This camper van has been professionally converted to provide a completely luxury home on wheels for the perfect camper van holiday. From the double bed at the back, the sofa seating in the middle, to the large kitchen at the front, Heidi has tonnes of storage and lots of space to chill out and take in the views.
Built for off-grid adventures, Heidi has a massive solar panel on her roof, and a huge 100litre under-mounted water tank. Combined with a Propex heating system, you’ll be snug as a proverbial bug in Winter. There is a hot water heater which also links to the outside shower point which is perfect for washing off muddy boots or dogs, as well as providing a handy space to have a private shower for humans too!
The garage space under the fixed bed is big enough for an inflatable kayak, bouldering mats, rucksacks and shoes for all sorts of activities with room to spare! However, you can always come back, snuggle up and relax in comfort – plug your laptop or tablet in to the surround sound system to enjoy a chilled-out film night.

Conversion StoryHeidi has been professionally converted by OffGrid Campers to a pretty luxury specification! This three-berth campervan has been designed to accommodate as much storage as possible, so that whatever adventure you’re going on, you’ll be able to pack everything in.
Heidi has been built using reclaimed Scottish pine from the old floorboards of a hotel which have been painstakingly sanded back to reveal their beautiful grain. Bespoke copper lights and fixings set off the yellow and grey walls and cupboards.
She's the sister to Wanda, so there are lots of similarities in design, style and finish - she's just a little bit bigger!
