Introducing 'Jade', a wonderfully easy to drive Toyota Alphard in perfect condition. Smooth and quiet engine with great cruising speed along the motorway. 'Automatic' drive and good size for smaller roads that motorhomes can't usually take. Well taken care of and in great condition. Suits a couple or single traveller. I use Jade myself for my photography trips and she always handles like a dream, with great tyres to handle muddy or icy roads.
Fully functioning kitchen with utensils, dining and cooking set (for two people), two gas hobs hooked up to a Campinggaz (2.72kgs), running tap water from a 25ltr jerry can, and cleaning up liquid and sponge. There is a comfy wooden L bed pull-out suitable for two adults, with plenty of storage underneath. Van is provided with full tank of petrol, two camping chairs and an outdoor table.
You can park your own car in its place at the end of my garage, if not coming by train which is also nearby. Covid safety rules are in place so limited linen will be provided, these will include kitchen wash cloths, floor rug and a small throw, so make sure to bring your own bedding, pillows and blankets.
Please let me know where you are planning to travel (campsite, pub stopover or wild camping), and if you have experience driving a van and an 'automatic'.
There is no smoking in the van. Petrol tank & water is required to be returned at same level it was rented. Well behaved pets are allowed with prior agreement.
A tracker & dashcam is fitted to the van so please stay within the speed limit.
1 bottle of Campingaz 907 (2.75kg) for cooking gas is provided. This should last about a week, cooking breakfast and dinner usually, depending on use. Replacements can be ordered as needed for the same price from nationwide providers, as well as most campsites.
Please allow at least 30mins at pick up and drop off to go through the inventory and sign the rental contracts.
Have fun! :-)

Natasha was very informative and helpful for our first van holiday. 'Jade' was extremely easy to drive and was warmer than we expected; we didn't need to use the heater but it was there if we needed it. We've been thinking of buying an Alphard for a while so were giving it a real test - cooking all but one of our meals, and using free one night stopovers rather than sites. This van conversion was very well thought out, so we got some great tips.
It was our first time ever hiring a campervan, and we couldn't be happier with the experience. Natasha is lovely, she explained everything about the van and gave us some good advice for our trip. We had Jade for 6 days and we enjoyed a great freedom of movement. It's small enough to pass for a standard car in ferries, yet it's pretty well equipped. Thanks to the fridge and storage space we carried all of the food we needed to prepare breakfast and dinner seamlessly. The provided gas canister lasted throughout the trip, and the leisure battery that powers the lights and USB plugs never ran out (it recharges when the van is moving and through a solar panel). The 10 liters water deposit was a bit short, lasting a couple days using it mostly for dishwashing. The bed was superb, surprisingly comfortable and wide. However, Natasha told us she was planning to change the bed and water deposit, so this review might get outdated soon. Anyways, highly recommendable.

Hello there, I am gallivanting landscape photographer in my spare time and use 'Jade' to drive about the UK camping and exploring nature and the countryside. Hopefully you will enjoy campervaning as much as I do :)
