Campervan : EthellVW

County : Wiltshire Campervan Hire
Reviews (1)

Ethell is a 1988 VW T25 Diesel Transporter. She is happy to go to a festival or for any other trip. She is a bit quirky and doesn't have top of the range, sleek pods for her features but instead has things like the original seat furnishings that are worn in places and original sink. Hi-top means you can stand up in her straight away (6' 2"/ 188cm). The main part of the drive away awning is just above 7' /214cm. If you prefer you can fit on the sun canopy - this is England so it's waterproof too! Just click on the pics to view. She likes to travel at about 55-60 mph but is capable of more if she really has to and can overtake lorries and get up hills although usually prefers to drop down to 4th gear for this sort of thing. Indeed, she spent two winter seasons in the French Alps. Hire fee includes fully comprehensive van insurance. Ethell has no toilet or shower. She has a small original kitchen sink (no running water). She has a pull out bed with comfy mattress topper but please supply your own bedding, towels and food. An extensive kitchen/self-catering inventory. Due to her age she isn't completely compliant to emission regs & so if you need to take her to a large city use park & ride or you would need to check and pay for any fees yourselves. Also, you'll need to pay for any parking fines if you get some.
