This is our professionally converted Volkswagen Transporter camper van Frankie .
Frankie is a great looking camper with colour coded alloy wheels, tow-bar, pop-up roof and if you wish we can also hire you a bike rack for £20.00 which we will fit securely on the rear. The ICE screen on the dashboard is capable of showing streamed movies whilst also being the sat nav, stereo and Bluetooth hands-free.
There are five seatbelts in Frankie , room for three people in the front and two in the rear, all with fitted three-point seatbelts. Unfortunately, Isofix is not featured on any of our campers.
There is a fold down sofa which converts to a double bed and once the roof is popped up there is enough headroom for even the tallest person to stand up in the living area comfortably, I am 6ft 6 so can personally vouch for this. Within the pop-up roof is an additional bed large enough to sleep one adult or two children. \we also provide a set of outside furniture so you can enjoy the outdoors.
There are blackout blinds fitted on all windows to provide you with extra privacy at night and we have added a thermostatic night heater so this vehicle can be used all year round without the worry of feeling the cold.
The kitchen area is fitted with a 12v fridge freezer, sink with running water and a two-burner gas hob. We have fitted out the kitchen with all pots and pans, crockery and cutlery you will need for up to 4 people.
The leisure battery has a meter so you can keep an eye on the charge level but on normal usage you can expect 3 days life from the battery. The battery is charged up when the engine is running so if you are touring/ sight-seeing you have no need to worry about the battery going flat. If you are not using Arthur to travel we advise you to run the engine to save you from draining the battery completely every few days.
In addition to the separate leisure battery we have mains hook up which can be used to run the low energy LED lighting, USB sockets and 230v points. We provide a hook-up lead for you.
This camper van is very economical, easy to drive and is great fun whether you are travelling through cities or out in the countryside. Frankie is also ideal for use on race days as we have a tow bar fitted and can provide a stick-on number plate for your trailer.
