VW T5 Campervan

Barbarella is a newly converted T5 VW campervan that is for hire in Bournemouth. The camper has everything you will need to escape, explore and relax and is perfect for couples, friends, or young families wanting to get away from it all and independently enjoy the great outdoors.  The campervan is based in Bournemouth on the Dorset coast and ideally located to explore the outstanding Jurassic coastline. We can also make recommendations on places to visit like the New Forest where you can camp, walk, and cycle.

Safety is important to us so the campervan has a full-service history and comes with fully comprehensive insurance and breakdown cover included in the price for both UK and Europe.  The campervan carries 5 people, 3 up front and 2 in the back, and sleeps 4: 2 adults on a comfortable rock and roll double bed with memory foam base and space for 2 kids in the pop-top above with a comfortable high-density foam mattress.

Barbarella drives really nicely, fits and parks anywhere, and converts easily to provide 4 berths or a comfortable living/dining area with a front double swiveling facing seat.

The campervan is based from our home in Bournemouth so we are flexible with pick up and drop off times and you can leave your car with us. We are also available for longer hire periods at a discounted rates upon request.  We carry out a pre-rental safety inspection prior to each hire.
