3/4 rock and roll bed

Ever wondered what a VW campervan rock and roll bed looks like? This is ours pulled out and curtains drawn. Seat by day, bed by night with plenty of storage underneath. Ours is a ¾ rock and roll bed so described because it takes up ¾ of the width of the camper van. The rest, as you can see, is taken up by storage.

This is a seriously cosy experience. With the curtains drawn you are in your own little word. Sometimes when we hear a noise outside we take a peek through one of the curtains but otherwise we just lie there listening. Having a cup of tea maybe. When you are in the cosy cocoon of a vw campervan it is the easiest thing in the world to lean over and stick the kettle on. We take it in turns. Just like at home:)

It’s quite airy inside the campervan. You can see that with the pop up roof up there’s quite a bit of headroom and there’s a vent in the ceiling that can be opened to let more air in if needed. We also have plenty of electric sockets in case you need to charge your phones. For these to work you do need to be plugged into an electric hookup and if we are at a proper campsite then we usually get a pitch with one of these.

If we are wild camping the fridge and lights still work off the battery. Wild camping is where the real action is. Pull into a layby near the beach, pop up the roof and you are in business.

You don’t need to own a campervan to be able to do this. Our campervan, Betty, is for hire. She is a 1971 VW T2 bay and is a dream to drive. See our campervan hire page for available dates. We are based in the middle of Lincoln - perfect for anyone looking for a VW campervan hire in Lincolnshire.
