Description

Our graffiti bus, Gus is one of a kind, a break from the norm and will give you a truly unforgettable experience! Built in early 1990 he has really stood the test of time with almost all his original interior features intact, sympathetic restoration where it was required (brand new carpet lining throughout, re-covered seats / beds) and a few quirky but homely additions for good measure - he doesn't look or feel like your standard hire vehicle but rather your very own adventure wagon, home on wheels! The highly regarded Auto-Sleeper conversion provides a spacious living area and absolutely loads of storage compartments with the added bonus of the hi-top roof meaning no faffing about when you pull up on site (the 2 double beds take just moments to set up) - just park up and chill :) Well equipped for even the most inexperienced camper, all the basic essentials are provided - double gas burner stove with a grill, refridgerator, sink with running water from the large storage tank and cooking / dining equipment is all ready packed. There's a simple to use diesel powered heater for the cooler days / nights and modern double electric socket with USB charging points for when you connect to electric hook up on site. A rear external ladder provides easy access to the roof rack for your extra luggage or you could throw some pillows up there and just enjoy the view!

Jen was super helpful and responded promptly whenever we had issues or questions and she explained everything we needed to know about Gus very well upon collection. Gus was great fun for my family of four. It was big enough to sleep two adults and a small teen at the top while the eldest slept in a one man tent outside. We were blessed by the weather so didn’t have to be in the van for ages. The drive wasn’t to long (11/2hrs to New Forest) and I am thankful for this as Gus due to his lovely age could not drive at high speed.. If you are planning to rent Gus for longer then two/three nights I would highly recommend that you find a plug in campsite otherwise you will have to eat all your perishables quickly as the cooler box doesn’t keep it cool for that long. The transformation for the bed was great and very comfortable- we actually slept well which meant we woke refreshed! If you are looking for a vintage experience then Gus is definitely the van for you ;).

We loved having Gus, such a cool and quirky van with loads of character. Took Gus down to Dorset, for an old van we had no issues whatsoever. The trip was incredible and wouldn't have been the same without Gus. The whole process was super easy and Jen was very helpful with all out needs and questions. Would 100% recommend hiring Gus for your next holiday. Received so many compliments and questions about Gus from fellow campers.

We had the most amazing weekend with Gus! He was an absolute dream and made it all the way to Cornwall and back with minimal fuss... we also slept really comfortably and overall it's a crazy living space with a fully functioning kitchen. Jen was amazing in her comms from start to finish and we're already planning our next trip with Gus! xx
