Lola is a 1979 RHD type 2 bay window Volkswagen Moonraker Campervan.
She seats five when driven (two up front and 3 in the back) Devon Moonraker's provide more space compared to other classic VW campers due to the distinctive large van-length pop up roof.
The interior back seat becomes a rock and roll double bed for 2 adults people. The pop up roof turns into a bed for 2 adults or children.
The interior was restored in June 2021. The original gas cooker, sink and fridge were kept. There is a fold away table for eating. The rental includes all crockery, cutlery, kitchen equipment and torch. The van has a carbon monoxide detector and fire extinguisher. LED lighting and phone charging works off the leisure battery. An electric cable is provided for hook up while at a campsite.
Powered by a fully reconditioned 2.0 litre petrol air cooled engine you can reach speeds of up to 55-60mph comfortably.
In the unlikely event Lola breakdowns she has AA cover for Roadside repair and relay from anywhere in the UK.
Driving a 44 year old camper van is obviously very different to driving a modern equivalent. For example, there is no power steering the brakes are pad rather than disk. For this reason, before the van is driven away I provide a driving lesson so that the designated driver feels comfortable before taking her on the road.
Free parking is provided in a locked garage for one vehicle so you can just drop off your car and go.
I can also provide free pick up from Farnham train station.
Please note I am doing a combination of WFH and also in London on some days so can be fairly flexible re drop off and pick up.
All you require for your trip is to bring your bedding.
Finally I will provide a 25 percent refund on the net rental fee for NHS, care workers and teachers.
******* If you would like to have a classic camper experience with another group, I also own Glenda 1976 Classic Camper Van - the cream camper that features in some of the pictures. She is also listed on this site for hire. There is secure parking for 2 cars (garage pictured) *******

Third party liability + Comprehensive insurance
United Kingdom and Europe
The security bond for this vehicle is $1,500. The bond will be refunded after your trip ended and needs to be authorized at least 2 days before your trip starts.
Anyone looking to rent an old school camper van for a long weekend away, I would highly recommend this van.
Great van, great bloke, great experience.
