We were fortunate to rent Melvin. We had fun when the weather complied. We did have problems with the roof as it was very loud as there was a cross wind and pelting rain.

Very nice experience. Derek & Jess are very friendly. They explained us valuable information.

Melvin ( The van name) includes all the elements ( water, pillows, bedsheet, disches, gas etc...)

We were 3 people inside, it was perfect!

Cannot fault this great little camper or it's owner! Derek was a great host and very helpful in sorting out my queries - even gave me a lift to the airport! Then van itself was very comfortable, kept me dry through a torrential rain storm and mechanically sweet as a nut - highly recommended!

Wonderful experience with Derek. He took the time to explain how everything works in the van and was very prompt in answering any questions we had. The van ran like a charm with no mechanical problems. My only concern was no air-conditioning while driving in 35+ temperatures, but we knew this when we rented the van. But overall, it was quite the roadtrip, and we are glad to have rented "Melvin".
