Welcome to our home away from home....
A perfect self-contained camper, ready to go! With 6 belted seats and the ability to sleep 4, this camper is the perfect getaway. It benefits from: a full width Rock and Roll bed that pops up/down in seconds; panoramic poptop with a 2 further sleeping spaces; a kitchen pod with fridge/freezer, sink and cooker.
My wife and I travel with our one year old son and 2 year old dog, so it’s fully insured and we include breakdown cover too. We were unable to travel during the summer so wanted to give others the benefit of our van. We’d never rented before so Camptoo seemed a great way to start. It turns out others loved it too since it's been rented out a lot since then! That said, we're still relatively new to this, so if there’s anything you need/want tell us.
Lots of questions, so more info here:
It’s a 2.5tdi engine, 6 speed manual T5 which has been remapped (so better MPG and more power). It has twin side loading doors, electric windows, mirrors, cruise control, tinted rear windows, front lower spoiler, fog lights, rear spoiler, chrome side bars, tow bar, 18 inch wheels. It benefits from 240v electrics (hook up); 12v leisure battery; split charge; and solar panel. 6 belted leatherette seats: 3 in the rear and 2+1 up front.
You're welcome to leave your car on my drive if needed, or I'm happy to drop off within a reasonable distance.
Regarding prices... Base price is £100 per night during peak times (til Oct), £80 off peak and I've just reduced to £70 for some of Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, March (Camptoo add a commission on top of this). Longer rents work much better for us, therefore we only offer a small discount for short rentals, but this increases rapidly for longer periods (i.e 3 week off peak brings it down to £52 before Camptoo fees).
7+ nights: 5%
14+ nights: 10%
21+ nights: 25%
28+ nights: 30%

In all honesty, 2 weeks or more is ideal for us because it's less work with cleaning/handovers/etc. So if you're looking for something like this, please contact me, I'm sure we can work something out. We'd consider long term rentals (month+) too at a very discounted rate - just get in touch.
Regarding inclusions: happy to include 2 drivers with no extra charge as long as I have all the details. Comprehensive breakdown is included too - RAC: Roadside, Recovery, At Home, Onward Travel and European. I do need proof of license and address as well as license check for my insurance to be valid.
