Red 5 is our beloved family campervan that has taken us on many adventures around Scotland and northern Europe. Fancy the North Coast 500? Red 5 will take you there in style! The van has been professionally converted by Jerba Campervans in North Berwick, and is setup with cruise control, captains chairs and an in-dash cd/DVD player (and USB port), which can make a long journey more enjoyable (for your front seat passenger). The van seats 4 (including driver), and the back RIB seat (crash tested) converts easily into a comfortable bed for 2. The pop top can be lifted to create headroom in the van, and a drop-down bed creates sleeping space for two upstairs (our son LOVES sleeping up there!). The van is equipped with a 2-burner gas hob, sink, refrigerator, and all the cooking equipment you might need, including cafetiere, kettle, pots and pans, etc. Red 5 has a diesel-fueled heater, which will keep you toasty warm year round. The heater is fantastic for keeping you warm in the colder months, or even for taking the edge off on cool mornings/evenings during a typical Scottish summer! In winter, we put winter tyres on the van, making it ideal for winter escapes into the highlands for walking or skiing. If requested (for additional charge), we have a motordome tent that attaches to the side of the van, making a spacious area that can be extremely useful when the weather is particularly "Scottish". There is an external bike rack for 2 bikes, which is very easy to use. We can provide a child's seat, if requested. We are happy to help and provide advice on travelling in Scotland, and we are certain you'll love your adventure in Red 5!

We had a brilliant time in this lovely van. It was spacious, clean, great to drive and had everything we needed. Andy spent time showing us exactly how everything worked and also gave us a recommendation for an amazing campsite which was one of the highlights of our trip. It made a big difference to be in such a reliable, well equipped and well loved van.
My wife and I recently got married and had the pleasure of touring this vehicle around some highlights of the NC500!
Collection: Andy's address is easy to find and was ready waiting for us. He committed to spending nearly an hour to explain how to work the van, which proved super useful, especially when out in some of the most North Western points of Scotland. Andy also obliged in giving a few site recommendations and walked through a couple of "what if's", which helped ease any anxiety into our first campervan experience.
The drive: The van albeit relatively old in comparison to some of the new flashy VW models you see driving around, was so easy to drive and handled all the tricky one lane, steep gradient roads perfectly, and sat at 70 no bother on the dual carriageway!
The pitch: Set up was easy and adapted nicely to your traditional site with a hard ground and going off road amongst those wild beaches up north. Cables, leisure battery etc all previously explained.
The sleep: I am 6ft 3 and found I slept just fine in the Rock n Roll bed on the ground floor. Was a tad too long for the pop up, but glad I tried it out, and was a useful test for when we go to buy our own
Cooking and leisure: Everything was very simple inside and we managed to eat all the normal meals and have our morning coffee, just as we would living in the city. All the utensils were provided and made the evening time that much more enjoyable and relaxing
Handover: Was very quick and painless and Andy also obliged with some useful tips when we go to buy our own camper. It’s very rare to have a seasoned Camper offer two cents, when you live in the city like we do.
Overall very happy and would absolutely urge those on the fence, to take the plunge as we did and enjoy Andy's van and see more of Scotland!

Très bonne expérience en Ecosse avec le van d'Andy ! Bien que l'on n'ai eu beaucoup de pluie, les paysages sont magnifiques, les espaces grandioses ! Malgrés quelques petites avaries sur le van, nous avons profité pleinnement de ce séjour. Andy est réactif et très arrangeant, un grand merci pour ta disponibilité et tes conseils !

Very good holidays with Andy's van. The van was as described and Andy and his wife spent 1hour with us to explain everything. They reply very quickly if you need anything. I really recommend !
Everything went perfectly.The van is very easy to drive and very well designed for a family.Andy's wife gave us many informations about the van so we could use it properly.it was a perfect experience to travel in the Highlands and visit at our pace.
Notre séjour à bord du van d'Andy s'est très bien passé.
Le van est très fonctionnel et Andy a su mettre en oeuvre son réseau d'amis pour nous permettre de louer son van malgré le fait que lui soit en vacances.
Très bonne expérience

I am a glaciologist working at the University of Edinburgh. I've lived in Scotland since 2003, and absolutely love the highlands, and the opportunities these mountains offer for climbing, skiing, mountain biking, walking and running.
