This was a great way to spend a weekend with the kids; it just proves that no frills is the way forward!
Wonderful weekend in Lulworth in Dorset, driving was a throwback to pre-ABS, pre-power steering and pre-climate control - and it was fabulous. Totally retro. Rod was most helpful on the pick up, all good.
I'm not sure who had the biggest smile on his face, my son who's surprise birthday treat it was, or me 47 and a Combi virgin. You cannot help but fall in love with these vehicles as they are immaculately turned out, each with its own character. After a briefing of the controls we set off on our adventures. Mango drove superbly and never missed a beat, after 10 minutes of driving you settle into calmness, time seems to no longer matter. You have time to take in all around you, and everywhere you go people smile or wave.
Rod and Sheryl will make you feel like part of the family and were a pleasure to deal with. Straight forward, easy to book and collect - perfect.
Booked the Salsa Red T6 camper van at short notice for a 4 day break with my brother and niece. The booking process was very easy and we were given all the information we needed before we collected the camper van. Rod and his wife were very helpful and showed us how everything worked and we were then on our way. The camper van was very modern and had everything we needed, very easy to drive, economical on fuel and such good fun. We had a brilliant 4 days and will definitely hire one again. Our deposit was refunded very quickly after our return and I can highly recommend using RetroCampervans - thanks so much!
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.
