Whether you are looking to explore the rugged coastline of West Wales, take in the many Castles and attractions, seek out and ride the stunning mountain bike trails or have dreams of travelling further afield through England and Scotland, this large motorhome is setup for longer trips and provides an ideal base-camp to explore.
A C1 entitlement is required to drive this vehicle - If you passed your driving test after the 1st of January 1997, you may not have this. Please check before booking.
This was the top of the line model from renowned German builder Hobby. It features built in fresh and waste water tanks, gas water heating, full warm air central heating, a mains powered electric radiator and is winterised allowing comfortable travel well into colder seasons.
There are few motorhomes that can offer the living space, storage or facilities as follows:-
Kitchen / Galley – Built in oven, grill and 3 burner hob. Fridge & freezer (essential ice for G&T). Integrated sink unit. Loads of storage. It even has built-in waste and recycling bins.
Bathroom - Electric flush Thetford cassette toilet with SOG extractor fan, sink unit and separate shower stall.
Lounge area – large “L-shaped” sofa with drop leaf table and second large sofa opposite. LED lighting, opening roof light and plenty of windows making it bright and airy.
Upgrades include a custom made fully sprung mattress, heavy duty Thule bike rack that can take 2 eBikes (up to 60kg total), spare toilet cassette, solar panel and two leisure batteries and a Gas-It refillable gas system with 2 x 11kg bottles. Where allowed, longer off-grid and remote camping trips become much more viable.
We bought this well cared for, low mileage motorhome in early 2019 and set it up ready for our own long-distance adventures. Having travelled extensively in the last year, we know it is perfect for a couple who appreciate space and facilities this motorhome offers over smaller vehicles.
You will require a C1 on your license as this motorhome is rated as 4.5 tons. We would also expect prospective renters to be familiar with driving a large vehicle. Don’t forget it is also left-hand drive which some drivers may find daunting. We did 7500 miles through France, Italy, Greece, eastern and northern Europe plus many miles in the UK without problems. If you can deal with the size of the vehicle driving, you will reap the reward of the added space and luxury this vehicle offers.

Van very very large. Its an older van, but was very clean and tidy.
Shower only 1min 40 seconds of hot water....
On third morning of holiday, fuse blown and all hot water dumped. Battery red hot.
Informed by owner to keep an eye on it...
Upon arrival at second location, hook up attached, however, at about 1800hrs, went to check said battery, which was red hot, and oozing battery acid.
Contacted owner, who told us to disconnect battery ourselves. With no mechanical knowledge, or tools.
Had to ask fellow camper....
Once battery disconnected, owner told us not to attach hookup in case second leisure battery over heated also. And he would contact RAC.
As a result, we were left without heating, water, or lights, overnight, from 1800 to 0900 following morning.....
An it was flipping freezing.....
RAC unable to attend due to no day light and the dangers of messing with an overheated battery in darkness.
Following morning, RAC tipped up, to inform us the battery was ‘f... Ed’...... his words.
The solution was two cable ties and a straw, to ensure water supply, and it not being continuously dumped due to blown fuse.
Three following days, were very uneasy, as we were constantly checking the second battery in case of overheat.
We remained as we were on hookup and not directly connected to battery, but it ruined holiday. Plus we also lost a nights rental for hook up.
Owner appeared uninterested in out plight, saying, well it could have happened to anyone, that’s motorhome camping.
The battery was obviously a serious concern to owner, as he stated his heart was racing and he didn’t eat for two days...
It completely ruined the holiday.
We believed we should have been appropriately compensated, but were only offered one night by the owner. Saying, well take it to Camptoo for mediation.
This experience has completely ruined our holiday.
Having now spoken to reputable hire company, I would never use this site or privately owned vans again. You have no comeback and are pretty much left to sort the issues out yourself.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are genuinely sorry for any inconvenience you have experienced.
We always want our guests to have a terrific time. Unfortunately, on this occasion something outside our control went wrong.
There are elements of your review that we feel do not correspond with our understanding of the timeline of events and our handling of the repair response.
It is challenging to provide immediate support and speedy repairs at a distance. Despite many text messages, phone and video calls to establish the issue and provide a solution, we accept that this may not have happened as quickly as you expected and that you were inconvenienced for one of your five nights. In this case your remote location and implications of covid-19 impacted on the RAC response time.
Given that the situation was remedied within 24 hours and that you then chose to continue your holiday, we felt that your request for a 100% refund was unwarranted.
As we could not reach an agreement on your return, we then suggested that Camptoo mediate a fair outcome.
