Meet Babs


Babs is a nearly new Type 2 Brazilian import made by Volkswagen in Brazil, so she is reliable while still retaining all the character and charm of her 70’s predecessors. This is the ideal camper for those longer trips.

Meet Basil


Basil is a blue 1974 type 2 VW camper which has had a full restoration with a brand new interior, with all the mod cons. He is more suited to shorter adventures or 60-80 miles a day touring. This is the classic iconic 70’s camper.
