VW camper hire


Dexter is more than VW camper hire, he’s a ticket to a great adventure, an invitation to instantly unwind and for us, his real appeal is his ability to transport you away from the holiday norm to discover the road less travelled.

Dexter is available for weekly or short break hire, he’s easy to drive making him perfect for the back lanes of rural Britain and he is perfect for a couple yet can accommodate a family of four

2017 sees the launch of Dexter’s fresh new interior. With upgrades to the driving seats, double bed and kitchen facilities, and brand new utensils, crockery and cooking equipment, he now provides greater comfort in his relaxed yet chic interior. The well thought-out storage and super easy to manoeuvre fixtures makes life on the road a dream.

The pop-up roof gives you additional head height when you need it and niftily creates a second double bed. It’s perfect for children, although if yours are anything like ours, it could be too exciting an adventure to sleep!

Our best purchase has been the top of the range Rib Altair flip-over rear bed. Okay, I know we sound like camper geeks now, and you’d probably question our state of mind if you knew its price, but we promise you’ll fall in love with it the moment you try it for yourself.

Everything in the camper has been designed for comfort and convenience, so the fold-flat front bench seat is not only comfortable, but it converts in a second, can be used as additional worktop space and makes a super comfy seating area for curling up with a book. Even the LED touch lighting has three dimmer settings to allow for your mood.

Ready to hit the road? Both the back bed and front seating area can be flipped back into position with ease, perfect for a quick getaway! The dining table is also removable so you can lift it out to give you even more space.

Of course, camping is all about the outdoors so camping chairs and an outdoor table are included, and a BBQ and other additional items are available to hire if you wish.  Worried about the weather? Don’t be, good insulation and heating mean the camper is comfortable in the cooler months too.

We also understand that not everyone who camps wants to experience the wilderness or total isolation, Dexter comes with 240v hook-up so there isn’t any reason to go without your mod-cons.

As a couple with two young children, it grieves us when we’re stuck paying over the odds for our holidays just because we’re restricted by schools. Our VW camper hire, therefore, operates on a fair and simple pricing structure which doesn’t suddenly jump up every bank-holiday weekend. Discounts are also available in low and off-season.
