We planned to hire a classic VW camper but Rod gently guided us toward the modern version and he was absolutely right. We had a brilliant time and with the distances covered and the weather in April it was the perfect choice. A wonderful way to head to the beach with total freedom. Never fancied camping but this has utterly changed my opinion. Loved it.
We hired a T5 campervan for the Easter weekend in the New Forest. The van was easy to drive, well equipped and easy to set-up and take down for day trips. RetroCampervan are friendly and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again or recommend them. Thanks again!
Hired Kiwi from RetrocamperVan for a mid week break to Lyme Regis with my 2 boys aged 10 & 11.
It was amazing.
We had the best break - very relaxing indeed.
We stayed at Hook Farm campsite in UpLyme & kept Kiwi in situ, which Rod had suggested & he was right...being the only adult it was great just getting the bus, walking or occasional cab.
I don't think I'd have enjoyed the few days as much, driving & finding space for Kiwi every time we wanted to go out for the day...
Kiwi allowed us a cosy space to sleep & make breakfast every morning.
My boys aren't huge fans of camping so having a camper van was a perfect compromise.
Will definitely hire again from RetrocamperVan...hugely enjoyable & made for an unforgettable adventure.
The sun was shining and so we rang up to see if we could hire a camper van for a last minute trip to the coast. Rod was really helpful from the start, listening to what we needed and making sure he could supply the right van for us.
We hired mango which was perfect for 2 adults and a 6 year old. Rod explained everything really well to ensure we were confident with the van and made recommendations on camp sites and places to visit. Mango was a great van for a weekend away and we got to experience quality family time with a retro twist. From the minute you start to drive Mango it puts you in a holiday mood and changes your pace of life, there's no rushing to get anywhere. Its such a beautiful van and got a lot of attention and compliments.
I rented Mango for a surprise for my husband and kids for his 40th birthday, and they were all blown away! They drove her up to Volksworld, the Campervan festival, in Esher and camped overnight on the Saturday. They found her to be in great condition, well looked after and very reliable. There were no problems at all, even when sitting in the nose-to-tail traffic jam on the way into Esher. Everything inside was clean and easy to use and Mango kept them warm & cosy overnight ; )
The booking process was straightforward and Rod was extremely helpful from start to finish. All instructions sent by email were clear and comprehensive, and included timely reminders throughout the lead up to the holiday. Rod was welcoming & accommodating, fully explained everything about the van and gave me complete confidence that they were a reputable company, who love renting to clients who share their passion for VW's. I would have no hesitation in recommending them at all. Looking forward to the next time already!!!
