Oona, named after an elephant because she's a big but gentle beast of a camper. Spacious and well equipped to make travelling comfortable, the very best thing is the skylight above the bed for star gazing at night.
The van can sleep 6 but we recommend it's best for 4 people. There is a king size bed above the cab, plus a lounge area and separate dining area which can both be turned into double beds (dining area really only suitable for 1 adult or two children). Please be aware that the sleeping arrangements are open plan - there are no doors or dividers to separate them.
The kitchen has good worktop space, a spacious fridge with freezer compartment and 3 burner hob, plus a gas powered outdoor cooker. Please note
there is not an oven or grill.
The fridge, heating, hot water and hob can all run on gas - and we provide 2 full bottles with the rental so you should have plenty to keep you going if you fancy 'wild camping'. The leisure battery will power the lights and pump for 2-3 days, but if you make use of the solar lamps provided, and use the leisure battery for just the pump, you could last for a week or more.
Apart from towels and bedding we provide a lot of what you need including kitchen equipment, crockery and cutlery. There's plenty of storage for clothes etc inside, and also storage underneath for camping/sporting equipment.
We will talk you through everything you need to know about Oona, and there are also written instructions in the van and we'll be at the end of the phone. We can also take you on a short drive to get used to the driving before you set off on your adventure.
If you would like to 'holiday' in a motorhome but don't fancy driving a 3.5t vehicle we may be able bring Oona to a campsite within 70 miles of Newbury. Please check with us first about availability, and also about the potential campsite as we would need to check about access, such a weight or height restrictions.
Oona is a Britstop member, which allows access to free over night stops in a variety of pub/farm locations (booking ahead required) - book and membership card inside van.

If there are any problems/issues while you are away, please call us as soon as you can so we can help solve them. Please empty and clean the toilet, and empty the grey water. Please return with a full tank of fuel (diesel). Remove rubbish (although we are keen to encourage recycling where possible, so if you have clean plastic, metal, glass, paper etc and can't find appropriate facilities, we can dispose of them for you). We provide eco cleaning products for you to use and would ask that the van is returned reasonably clean, although we don't expect it to be spotless as we will do a thorough clean ourselves.
You will be provided with a full tank of fuel - please fill up before you return (there is a garage a few hundred metres from our house).
We provide mattress protectors, but we ask you to bring your own bedding, pillows and towels.
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.
