“PEACHES!! - a peach indeed”
Reviewed 1 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

For me hiring an old style VW camper was all about showing my wife and children what I used get up to twenty years ago. I picked the kids up from school in it and then we all embarked on a week long trip including the dog. My kids are 7, 5 and nearly 3 years of age. What a magic time for us all. Far better than I could have hoped really with the major bonus being the close living quarters which offer serious great opportunity for family bonding!! (there's no choice!). So all 3 kids went up the top and Mum and Dad down below with dog on the floor.
Well maintained and serviced the van came with all we needed for our trip. Mechanically everything worked as it should and we felt in safe hands. Was an excellent experience all round. Rod seems very careful of all his vans and is rightfully proud of his great little business. I wish him all the success for the future and would certainly recommend him and his business to others. Rod is genuine, caring, honest and trustworthy - exactly what you hope for really - and it shows with how serious he is about details both in and out of his vans.
To summarize, I left after the experience feeling sure I'd be back again, perhaps even next summer.
10/10 - well done Rod!

“Strawberry”
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a great weekend in Strawberry, and enjoyed the great service provided by Rod and Co. The experience in the camper was great and we received many compliments on the beautifully kitted out bus on every campsite we arrived on. Don't forget to take sleeping bags / a warm duvet!

“Beautiful Blueberry!!!”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Had a fabulous weekend with Blueberry the Camper!! :-) Comfortable and all the facilities I needed. Such a perfect time. Stayed over for a wedding and made bacon sarnies in the sunshine in the 'morning' after - morning-ish! Pootled through the countryside on my way back to many admiring glances and smiling faces and horn tooting and waving to other camper users - I was very sorry to give her back :-(
Rod, the owner, was wonderfully friendly and helpful and as laid back as the whole camper van experience. Thank you Rod! Will look forward to hiring Blueberry again soon

“Amazing Weekend With Kiwi!”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We were lucky enough to receive a gift voucher for Christmas and duly booked up our weekend away with the lovely Kiwi.. Rod (the man in charge) was really helpful throughout the booking process, answering all of my questions (as a newbie to this kind of travel) and he was great when we went to collect Kiwi on the Friday afternoon.

We had a great long weekend, travelling around the New Forest and South Coast and it was a great feeling when people waved at us and smiled as we drove past.

We would highly recommend renting from this company and found them helpful and professional to deal with at all times.

A few tips for newbies looking to rent a camper van:
1- definitely use this company - they take the time to explain everything to you and give you great tips on getting the best out of these lovely but very retro vehicles
2 - have at least a loose plan of where you're heading in advance and book camping pitches where you can.. it helps having a destination each night so that you are free to explore with a final point in mind.
3 - if you take your dog along (as we did) make sure the camping sites are dog friendly (a lot are but some aren't) and bring along a nice big cushion for them to sleep on. We put ours on the camper floor just behind the front seats and ours slept happily there while we were driving and at night.
4 - it can get very cold at night so take along an extra duvet or sleeping bag. There's plenty of room to store it while you're in transit and it means you'll be snug at night.

All in all we had a great weekend and would wholeheartedly recommend this company - in fact we hope to do this again in the future and will definitely go with Retrocampervan.com

“Unforgettable birthday treat”
Reviewed 12 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A group of us hired 6 campers from Rod as a surprise a friend for her special birthday. We drove to the south coast with everyone waving to us and smiling at us as we past in a colourful convoy. We spent the day on the beach but the real treat was spending the night in our lovely campers on a campsite round the camp fire and looking up at the starts. Can highly recommend as a fun group thing to do for a birthday treat. The campers were well equipped and once we had the briefing from Rod, easy to drive even for a novice like me. We will definitely do it again!

“Brilliant Fun”
Reviewed 7 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We picked up "Mango" on Friday afternoon and a smile on our faces all time we were travelling. The campers van are in very very condition and Rod is a very relaxed guy.

Everywhere you go people smile, let you out of junction even just wave at you as you travel about.

There were two adults and a 4yr old travelling, and she loved it.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED A+++++++++++++

“Returning customer for more fun”
Reviewed 6 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We hired Kiwi last year and had a great, fun weekend in her. We hired Apricot last weekend and again had a great time in her. Our daughter is hooked on campers now. We actually prefered the older camper than the new one. We took Apricot this time as we went to Cornwall for the weekend and it was a long drive but she was fine, steering took some getting use to. Rod is great, very helpful and informative.
Hire once and you will be hooked.
Will recommend and also return for another hire in the future.
