Booked your van yet?
Woohoo it’s July and the camping season is in full swing. So is the campervan hire season. Our VW campervan Betty is just back from a three week corporate hire to Holland Germany, Belgium and France and we are just turning her around ready for the next hire this coming week. This next one is a more local Lincolnshire job but it matters not to Betty.
The featured image is the picture for July in our campervan calendar - hanging up in the kitchen. We have lots of campervan “memorabilia” or whatever you call it. Mugs, tea towels, salt and pepper pots etc. It’s what you do when you own a vintage VW campervan:)
Being a vintage vehicle is also quite handy from the point of view of not having to pay car tax. Betty’s registration doc has her down as a “historic vehicle”. Still have to register her every year mind you but don’t have to hand over any cash.
Looks like there’s no poptop roof on the blue van in the photo. All these vans are different although there are a number of standard layouts, depending on where the original conversion was made. Ours is known as a Devon Moonraker but there are others: Wesfalia and Dormobile spring to mind.
Betty has been in such demand this year that we haven’t yet had a chance to head away in her ourselves. We have booked her for top Lincolnshire festival JoeFest in August and look out for some exciting news about that which we will be announcing very soon.
Anyway it’s too nice to sit indoors writing this stuff and I’m sure you would rather be out in the garden. Before you go just check out our campervan hire page to see Betty’s availability.

Hi Anne we've had a lovely weekend in Betty. The awning has been a godsend to give the extra space.Amanda
