We had a great trip over the easter bank holiday. We travelled to Horsham - picked up our brand new t5 - and went to the south coast for 3 nights. Weather was changeable but we really enjoyed the experience and are thinking of doing it all again later this year. T5s are brilliantly designed, though a little tight for 4 (mum, dad and 2 boys 6&3) without an awning!
Camperbug was easy to use and to have so many options on one web site was a gift.

My 10 year old son and I toured Devon in Florence74 for a week during the Easter holidays. The van was perfectly equipped for a holiday and everyone we met commented on how smart it is, both inside and out. We had a superb holiday and Florence74 was absolutely brilliant. Dave, the owner, is terrific. Hes super-responsive on email, very helpful in terms of pick-up and drop-off times and very friendly both during the booking process and in person. We would highly recommend Florence74 for your next trip.

Boys Campervan Trip - 6th-11th April 2014 (Tango)
My two Sons have been keen on Campervans for years and so it seemed like an amazing thing to take them away for a Boys Only trip, without their Sisters and Mum. Our first time in an old VW Campervan!
From collecting the Van on the Sunday, with a very comprehensive and friendly runthrough of all the details, we just knew it was going to be an amazing trip. Clive the owner is brilliant, and couldnt have been more helpful. Literally bubbling with love and enthusiasm for everything VW Camper, we couldnt help but get the bug!
On setting off all the intricacies and nuances of a 40 year old van made us all laugh, giggle and love the journey to the South Coast. Even though the weather was torrential for the first two days it was still amazing, and luckily as the weather improved we were able to visit the beach and other beautiful sites along the Jurrassic Coast
We have decided to made the trip something we do every year. And I hope we can use Clives Vans in the future because I simply could have asked for more from anyone hiring these vehicles.
If I could offer anything as a reason to take a trip like this.....The sound of my rain pinging on the roof, as my two wonderful Sons lay sleeping, will be a memory I will cherish forever.

Thoroughly recommend the hire of this perfectly presented and well appointed T5 California camper van. The owners really have thought of everything from cleaning products to cook book - even came with collapsible bucket! Paperwork organised with no problems - the owners TanyaViorel provided a useful quick reference guide for the most common functions of the van (in additional to the detailed manuals) - a comprehensive demo was given on collection to ensure we go the most out of the camper. Also provided tips on good camp sites of area.
Excellent service, setting up camping with all inclusive equipment is really quick. Had a wonderful weekend - and in the luxuries of this camper not even the weather can spoil your stay. Thank you

Great weekend biking and surfing in Cornwall. Easy rental and everything well explained and communicated. Fully stocked with everything we needed and a dream to drive. Very comfortable to sleep in and used the heater in the cool evenings. Plan to rent again for another getaway.

We had the honour of having Florence as our wedding car- she was amazing from start to finish, the best possible arrival I could have hoped for and she drew many envious looks! She was in great condition and although we didnt use her for camping, she looked well equipped. She also served as a brilliant photo booth backdrop. Dave was brilliant and a pleasure to do business with. Would highly recommend.

We had a lovely weekend with George the T5 in North Wales. Steph was really helpful and responded quickly to all enquiries. We wanted to try out a T5 with the family to see if they liked it. We loved it so much we have bought our own! Thank you for helping us come to that decision. :D

I hired Henry as a surprise for my wifes birthday and we went away for three nights around the south coast. We took along her sister & partner so there were four of us in total. Its was pretty snug but we managed it and all slept well. Theres one double bed in the back and one in the pop-top.
The van has a fridge and a cooker which made it easy for us to cook dinner one of the nights and breakfast every morning. Its a real bonus to be able to pull up somewhere nice and make a cup of tea.
The van drives quite differently to a modern car or van, it takes a little getting used to but once you do its a joy. In 4th gear its smooth, much quieter than I expected and chuggs along comfortably at 60mph.
Andrew, the vans owner is really friendly, he took care to show me all Henrys quirks, gave me tips on driving and even drove me round the block to give me an idea of how it drives. He accommodated a few unusual requests I had in order to keep it a surprise for my wife like letting me pick the van up the night before we left.
All in all we had a fantastic time. Its so lovely to be able to be spontaneous and go where you fancy and the van makes that really easy. And as it has so much character its great just being in it and driving it around. Although maybe next time we might just go the two of us!

I really enjoyed hiring cliff. Very easy to drive and comfortable. Gets up the hills easily. The bed above was very comfortable and having climate control heating by remote control was a dream in the mornings when cold and to get dressed. I loved the fact that we could pull up anywhere and make lunch and a cuppa and in privacy. No messing about at the campsite setting up. We were also able to enjoy wonderful views inside out the windows of countryside and woods. I wished I had hired for two weeks and done some more motoring. The lady we rented off of was very polite and easy to talk to and obviously proud of her wonderful limited T5 California. I want one now!!

So I went from Reading to Dorset then Cornwall with my three children. This camper van was really good value at £300 for four days. It was a wonderful retro experience driving a 1977 camper, everything feeling very hands on. It has obviously been very well looked after and was 100% reliable. The owners are very friendly and helpful people who have taken care of campers for years. The sound system was fab, although a shame not to have adaptors for mp3 or similar as this is the format my children use. They tolerated my music stoically! A cautionary note, we stopped at a campsite in Charmouth for our first night and although the day was warm and sunny the night was bitterly cold. Although the camper has a heater it wasn t enough to be comfortable so Id say if you are hiring and planning on using Henry overnight in spring or autumn be prepared to wrap up well at night! This is good fun travel. Everyone loves a camper, you get lots of smiles from people which all adds to the holiday. Driving it is really comfortable. I would definitely book this camper again, perhaps take advantage of the cheap rates by booking for a longer period to really appreciate the slower pace of travel. Cheers Chris

Sydney was an absolute delight, Sue was incredibly helpful (and patient!) instructing me on how to drive the camper, and I felt very secure from her advise and instruction. Sydney is a dream on the motorway, Ive never had so many smiles from other drivers and it is surprising how quickly you relax into a calmer pace. We rented Sydney for a Museum event, and it was wonderful how much of a draw being based in the van was. Our visitor numbers for our event were well over what we expected and it really was a lovely weekend spent pootling around in our bus on lorry time! The interiors of Sydney are fab (and very retro - which we appreciated), you have everything you need for a weekend and once you pop the roof its delighfully airy and spacious. I was sad not to be the centre of attention once I handed Sydney back and returned to my normal car!
Thanks again, Katie and the Garden City Collection Team.

We had a fantastic time in George. The Camper was very clean and had everything we needed. Left hand drive was no problem and drove like a dream. Thank you Stephen for showing as how everything worked we will definitely recommend to our friends.

Absolutely loved staying in Henry ii for a weekend in Brighton. We were complete novices to the campervan world and were surprised how cosy it was despite the weather! Great service from the owner and would thoroughly recommend to others!

My wife, baby daughter and I spent a mid week break driving through Northumberland and across to the Lake District. The van was a pleasure to drive and not as fuel hungry as I expected. The van was very comfortable and more then enough space for a family of four. Both beds were comfortable and the equipment provided was more then adequate for everything we needed. Plenty of storage space for food and belongings. We all had great time and would definitely would do it agin!

I hired Edithruby to fulfill a dream for my husband, Harrys, birthday. Hes always wanted a VW camper and this was the closest I could get.
It needed to have "character" and we certainly got that.....smart, bright red and cream exterior, lovely, neat, matching interior. The mechanicals were like nothing Ive ever experienced....no power steering, no power brakes and sometimes needing a creative start, but even this couldnt spoil our trip.
I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it, when I secretly went to try it out. My Harry was smitten just the same a week later when we picked it up.
Daniel, the owner, was very accommodating and patient with all my questions and attacks of nerves. He, and his family, made every effort to meet all my "cloak and dagger" secret arrangements; heartfelt thanks to them.
Our trip was Friday- Wigan to Carlisle, Saturday to Kielder Forest, then Sunday to York and Monday back to Wigan. We had a BALL!!!. The driving was at a stately 55 to 60 mph, in the slow lane on the motorway, until we could take to the A roads and pootle to our hearts content, knowing a brew and a toasted bun were never far away. It was wonderful.

We would like to thank Sydney Sue & Jack for a great weekend. As the driver,I would like to thank 2nd gear for keeping me entertained for both trips. She withstood 5 Nixons very well & was the talk of the town at the campsite. Even hairy bikers waved at us! Hopefully we will meet again.
