'If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there'. Lewis Carroll.
Hello, my name is Ruby. I am an original VW Type 2 Westphalia, LHD, converted camper van. I can carry 5 people (lapbelts in rear) and sleep 4 (or 6 if the optional drive away tent is hired).
I have a new flat 4 upgraded air cooled engine, that easily pulls along the motorway at 70mph & ensures I am super reliable. I am fitted with power assisted steering and my steering wheel is on the left as I was born in Hamburg, West Germany (1978).
I am finished in ‘Strawberries & Cream’ which tends to turn many heads when I am pootling about. My cabin is finished in both soft leather with vinyl trim. The kitchen has a Smeg gas hob, water-pump sink and three-way refrigerator. There is plenty of storage in bespoke cabinets. Sofa style seating & removable table. 240v electric hook up, DVD player, stereo & a safe for your valuables.
I have a rock n roll bed (sleeps 2 adults) and a pop top bed (sleeps 2 adults), both with memory foam mattresses for comfort. Pop my top to create room for sleeping, extra storage and headroom in the cabin.
As optional extras I have a bike rack (for 4), a tow bar and a driveaway tent with separate sleeping accommodation. Please ask for prices at time of booking.
We can also offer a camping plot in a neighbouring field/woodland within the South Downs National Park - please ask for details and availability.
So either stay in the Fittleworth are or take a road trip in perfect style, the choice is yours!

Ruby is a much loved family camper van, please look after her and bring her back to us after your road trip in the condition she was picked up in. Ruby is not a racing car, she is more of a cruiser so careful drivers are preferred. No smoking. If you have an accident or a breakage, please replace the item so that its ready for us when we used Ruby (if you are unable to replace the item, please let us know, we understand that accidents can happen).Show more Show less

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.
Ruby is surprisingly cosy— we slept well on the top and bottom beds and had great nights’ sleeps. And even the left-hand drive is much simpler to drive than I thought.
It was such an adventure being able to find places to sleep with sea and coast views, like none that a hotel could offer. We did experience some pretty bad weather, which in hindsight, I wish we’d also hired her awning for some extra space to get dry.
We’d definitely book Ruby again for another trip. And we’re already thinking of where next.
