This pet-friendly camper van has been designed for off grid camper van holidays. With a large solar panel on her roof, you can take the road less travelled, and enjoy a peaceful secluded wild camping view. Although, if you want to have the luxury of a camp site, there's a hook up connection too!
Wanda is a van for all seasons, as she has a super-efficient gas-powered heating system, which means you don't have to wear long johns to keep toasty! In the Summer, you can slide open the side or back doors, grab a bottle of something cold from the fridge, and chill out and take in an epic sunset or two.
The interior is made from sleek birch ply and up-cycled pallet wood. The clever bungee-fronted storage cupboards keep the weight down, and mean you can pack so much stuff in every nook and cranny! There are cupboards over the kitchen for clothes, under the bed for bedding and pull out drawers at the back for rucksacks, muddy boots and waterproofs!
If you want to chill out after a full on day of adventure with your furry friends, or snuggle up on a cosy romantic getaway for two - Wanda's definitely your girl! With brilliant travel links from Birmingham airport, and centrally located in the heart of England for adventures to The Peak District, Snowdonia, The Lake District or Cornwall, Wanda is ready and waiting to set off on an epic campervan holiday!

Conversion StoryWanda started out life as a carpet fitters van in Essex. Up for rehoming, we fell in love with her and bought her back to Worcestershire to live out the rest of her days as an adventure camper. She was designed around our love of rock climbing, hiking, scrambling and all other outdoor related activities.
She had a little detour to Leicestershire where the amazing lads at Snailvans worked their magic and transformed her into at the beautiful handcrafted campervan you can see now.

Wanda is only a 2 berth campervan and is fairly compact. We are more than happy for children to enjoy Wanda however there is only enough room in her for 2 adults, 1 adult and a child or potentially 2 adults and a very small baby. There isn't really enough room for a cot.
Pet PolicyWe’re happy for you to take your furry friends as long as Wanda is brought back in same condition you found her. We politely request for an additional £50 deposit on top of the normal deposit to cover damage and any additional cleaning needed. If all is well when you return Wanda then the deposit will be refunded. Wanda is not really big enough to accommodate large dogs.
