Say hello to our pride & joy – Babs & Basil

 
 

Babs


Babs is a type 2 VW transporter with bags of personality and soul. The type 2 was the second vehicle to be produced by VW after the Beetle, (hence type 2) first going into production in 1949. The type 2 shot to fame as the vehicle of choice as part of the hippie movement of the 1960’s where it became known as the VW camper van or simply ‘camper.

Babs has bundles of character & charm. Over the years, she has been the VW campervan of choice for many families, couples, friends & more. Please read through our testimonials, Babs has shared many happy experiences with some great people over the years, some of which keep coming back!

Basil


Basil is a soulful character. Driving her feels like you are back in the 70’s with no care in the world. Originally built & registered in 1974, this old lady is a bit of an old timer, but like any old timer in Yorkshire she’s as tough as old boots & looks after herself! Kept in prime condition all these years, get ready for the ride of a lifetime.

She is a new addition to our Yorkshire based VW camper van hire company & we are pleased to have her for many years to come.

    The customer service was first class, and the addition of the best complimentary goodies we’ve ever seen. Driving Jemima was simply ace. Such a great memorable weekend! Can’t wait for the next xxxxxxx

    Jemima is great. A perfect lady. Shes seduced us with her vintage charms and great sound system…thanks also for the wine and the cakes – really appreciated.

    We will definitely keep a great memory with Babs and I got a feeling that it is not the last time we take her on the road!
