Who am I?

I'm a Midlands based carpenter with a passion for travel, festivals and the outdoors. We love France and Spain particularly, making the most of their wonderful campsites and aires. This is our first van conversion, we invested a lot of thought in its layout and it has everything we need on the road, we hope you that you agree with us!

We had a really great experience with Chris's campervan. 
The camper was clean and really cute and we spend three nice days in it! 
The introduction was really helpful and quick and with enough social distancing of course! We are really happy about our choice and would totally book again! 
Thanks for the lovely campervan!

The whole experience was easy and hassle free . Chris was welcoming ,  friendly and helpful and explained everything clearly . The van was great , easy to drive and had all you need for a trip away , including a hot shower and large fridge .


September 2020

We had a very positive experience. Chris was friendly, welcoming and very helpful. He gave us a good overview of the campervan and was highly responsive when we texted with a couple of questions. We didn't go off grid, although the van would have served us well if we had. We managed to drive around the peak district and had very comfortable stays at local campsites, with electric hook ups. Due to Covid we wanted to be fairly independent of site facilities, and the on board facilities meant that we acheived this. We are now looking at buying a van of our own. Many thanks Chris for your kindness and the loan of your van. Andy and Sally 


October 2020

We had a great time touring around Wales in Chris's van. Chris took time to explain how everything worked during the handover. Everything worked as it should. The great thing was all the little extras that were included such as camping tables, chairs, barbecue, etc. As we were away during the Covid situation a lot of sites had their toilets and shower facilities closed, but that was not a problem as the van is pretty much self sufficient. We used the electic hook up a couple of times, but found it wasn't really necessary if you were driving each day as the battery charged up ok and the fridge could run on gas. Overall I would be very happy to recommend as we had a great experience.

*We hired this van for a week to do the Nc500*
Chris was very friendly on first approach. He introduced himself and asked us about our trip. He showed interest and positivity to what we planned. 
The van, he gave us a tour of and showed us how everything worked. He explained that if we get stuck there's every instruction manual and not to hesitate contacting him if needs be. Though it was straight forward to understand and use. 
The van itself, was modernised using a leisure battery and gas, as well as an electric hook up for campsites. It was kitted with a fridge freezer, tv - with an ariel and DVD player, cooker and grill, full standing shower and flushable toilet. The van was a great size for two adults. It had everything we needed to wild camp in the highlands. We were able to stay clean and cook meals seeing beautiful views! It was reliable and smooth when driving. It had parking sensors and cameras to aid parking which became helpful when driving down single track roads. 
On return, he asked us about our trip, was happy to hear about our experience. He was pleased with how we returned the van. 
Everything was quick and straightforward. 
We had a wonderful experience in this van and Chris made hiring it a pleasant experience. 


August 2020

This was the first time we gave used Yescapa & our experience has been great. We originally booked with Chris for the Easter break but due to lockdown we changed for the Summer. Chris was more than happy to change the dates & Yescapa sorted this for us.

We were contacted before by Yescapa and Chris before our booking so felt at ease about it all.

When we arrived, Chris showed us around the van explaining everything simply & easily, which we were very grateful for!! During the trip we had a fabulous time. My partner is much taller than me so having the extra leg length on the bed was great! 
Everything we could want and need was supplied, except the sunshine!

Thank you so much Chris, we had a fabulous time. Totally recommend this hire!

August 2019

The whole process was extremely straightforward and simple. Christopher was very friendly and helpful, and we were very comfortable in the camper which has everything you need for your stay. We’re certainly very happy to recommend Christopher’s camper to others. 


June 2019

It's clear that Christopher loves his campervan and that he wants you to enjoy using it too. It's a great van with a large fridge and comfy bed. There's plenty of storage space and it was so handy having the on-board toilet and shower. The gas hob and oven also made breakfast for my friends each morning a simple task. I'm too old for camping in a tent now, so this is a great way to enjoy a festival in luxury at a very reasonable price. Thanks, Christopher!

Ce fût une trés bonne expérience, découvrir l'Angleterre du sud jusqu'au nord de l'écosse ( Ullapool ) . Quelque soucis pour le paiement en ligne avec la banque ( Caisse d'épargne ) pour ne pas la citer ; problème finalement résolu avec une carte Pass Carrefour . Merci à Christopher Powell d'avoir été patient.

 

It was a very good experience, discovering southern England to the north of Scotland (Ullapool). some problems for the online payment with my bank (Caisse d'épargne) for not quoting it; problem finally solved with a Carrefour Pass card. Thanks to Christopher Powell for being patient.

Thank you so much for returning the van in such clean condition, it really is appreciated!

I have investigated the issues that you raised with the water ingress and found the issue which has now been resolved, Scotland has the ability to throw some interesting weather our way.

Many thanks
