We rented two 2017 VW converted Transporters, one manual and the other automatic. There are six of us in our family so we had a boys camper and a girls camper. Off we went to the South Coast of England in February half-term. Now...I packed thick fluffy socks and blankets, warm PJs and lots of layers, totally expecting not to get a wink of sleep because of the cold.
How naive was I?
I had totally underestimated the 5* quality of the vans! Once we arrived at Twelve Oaks Campsite, in Devon and plugged into the electrics it all came alive - the spotlights came on, the efficient heating system worked immediately and we cooked our tea as cosy as can be.
We turned the passenger seat round, set up the table and ate in a very civilised manor feeling rather smug that the others campers on the site were not enjoying such luxury!
The roof pops up to give room for 2 to sleep up top and then we converted the back seats into a super comfy and cosy double bed.
Hot chocolates anyone?!
Our four children, 14, twins that are 13 and Ben who is 9 all enjoyed the vans for different reasons. The sense of adventure, the cosiness, the sleeping arrangements, all added to the enormous bank of memories we brought home with us. Most of the conversation on the way back past Stonehenge was about when would it be possible to hire the vans again!
#Rockinvans was the perfect experience for us, the driving was easy, the vans being very responsive and so easy to drive, fitted with reversing cameras as well as sat nav and all the mod cons that make for a very pleasurable journey, so really all we had to concentrate on was enjoying ourselves!
