We really enjoyed our trip and Melvin is very friendly and responsive. We chose this camper as it was reasonably priced and was a smaller one which just makes it more manageable on the roads.

We'd already had our holiday booked with Melvin's camper when we read a rather negative review. To address a couple of those things pointed out, yes there is some duct tape on the bumper but you probably wouldn't even notice if it wasn't pointed out to you and you certainly won't care. Similar for other repairs.

Took it to Cornwall on about half a tank, about 35 litres. There is a sink and a hob. The fridge works off either the engine battery when it is moving, off the mains electric when the camper is plugged in or off gas if no electrics. Mel supplied us with 2 full gas tanks, we didn't run out of the first one.

There is a standard size microwave that if you want to use you need to take out of the cupboard then place either on the table in the camper or on the screen which folds down over the hob. This cupboard is setup to hang clothes inside. We used it to store the buggy in as well, recommendation here might be to ask for some wood to place over the microwave to help protect in when stored here, maybe?

There are 6 other smaller cupboards along the roof, 3 each side, not that deep but I was able to put my clothes and our infant's clothes in one. Mel does leave some other things in the cupboards for your use, such as bowls, kites and games, if you think you have a few things to take our recommendation is to ask for the cupboards to be cleared beforehand.

The watertank was maybe about 1/3 full and we ran out of water after about 4 days, we did the dishes and used the toilet but that's about it. The assumption was more that we would use camp site facilities, however in these days of Covid we were being careful as possible so recommendation here is to let Mel know what you might want the water for and let him fill the tank accordingly (a fuller tank means the camper is heavier)

There are 3 benches, 2 of them turn into a double bed, the other could be used as a single. Then there is a double bed in the roof. One of the double bed benches has storage space underneath, the other has the water tank. The single bed is quite hard. We were able to put our infant's snuz pod on one and we slept in the roof double bed.

Overall the pictures are a good representation of what you are going to get and Mel is a nice person.
We purchased a week in this family campervan as it was close to where we live and looked like we had everything we needed at a fair price . We were excited to book and go on an adventure with the family.
Mel correspondence was not great and sent a few messages without a reply so had contact camptoo but eventually he did get back to me.
On the morning of our holiday we collected the campervan to be informed the awning was broken from a previous holiday maker. We were also shown the bumper was previously knocked off and was held in place with duck tape he the showed us the table which had some parts missing again from a previous holiday maker.
Stupidity because we were excited we signed to accept the breakages because we were on the morning of our holiday packed up campsites and activities booked and kids ready to go what could we do ?
On the way down the table fell off 4 times so had to be tsken off as unusable and unsafe.
The toilet and shower base was broken and the holes were covered with tape. The drivers door had tissue and an old newspaper in the drivers door.
I had to go home and antibac before we left.
We arrived to use the torch as it was dark that didnt work so we just went to sleep.
I kept smelling something awful but couldn't see where it was coming from.
In the morning the baby was crying for his milk so i got the microwave out of the cupboard where it was stored and the smell became stronger. When i opened it o saw food and maggots inside !
It was horrendous and at that point we decided to terminate our holiday as we couldn't use the awning or the table and it was simply filthy.
Mel apologised as his wife forgot to clean the microwave but had apparently spent 2 hours cleaning im unsure what she was cleaning ?
We left for home that morning and returned the campervan soon after. Mel gave us a partial refund as we lost insurance and camptoo fees.
This message is not to slander but to warn others as our family holiday this year has been ruined.
We have all been very ill with D and V since we came back im not blaming the van but seems like a coincidence.
We just don't want anyone else to have to go through this
