About Us

Our Mission

To provide a cool, fun and fabulous motorhome that provides you with the best possible opportunity of having a great time. The rest is up to you.

Funky B Motorhomes

We are both passionate about hiring out motorhomes that are something a bit special and with the Mercedes Hymers you get something that turns people’s heads. An essential ingredient is that they are based on a Mercedes vehicle and therefore really reliable; plus Hymer just know how to turn them into motorhomes that as well as looking good are also really well designed and built, including a great use of internal space, with our favourite the pull down bed that you just push up out of the way when not wanted.

From the beginning we set out to make hiring a motorhome from funky B as simple an experience as possible, this includes having transparent costs, a simple to use website and hire process, plus  lovely relaible motorhomes.

Mark Watson - Company Director - Funky B Motorhomes

I have been a fervent lover of Mercedes Vans since the early 1990s. I owned a selection of classic vans, including a 408 and two 608s all from the very early 1980s; and I have to admit that I owned them all at the same time. That era of self converted motorhomes laid a solid foundation for my passion to provide classically cool Hymer Mercedes to those that ‘know’ – today.
With a 25 year background in design, building and high quality carpentry; my eye for detail is well honed; and if the background as a builder has helped with the constructional aspects of running Funky B then it has to be said that the years spent driving them to parties and festivals gave me a great understanding as to what makes a great motorhome and what features enhance the living away from home experience.
This background is one of the driving forces behind the provision of a great hiring experience for Funky B’s customers. More importantly it means that I will always be a striving to improve that experience and offer a willingness to listen to your needs and suggestions for future improvements.
“To everyone looking at our motorhomes – I say – hire one and you wont look back. These classic vans provide Cool, Space, Fun, Freedom and perhaps most of all – a great nights sleep. What are you waiting for?” – Mark Watson – Company Director – Funky B Motorhomes Ltd.

Ralph - Funky B Motorhomes DirectorFor many years I’ve worked in the not for profit sector, managing projects for organisations that include Barnardo’s, Brook Advisory and currently St Mungo’s. I enjoy many parts of my job because it’s all about supporting and enabling people to make positive choices and have a say in the way services are delivered. However I’ve always wanted to run my own successful business and I’m therefore very excited about starting Funky B Motorhomes with my friend and business partner Mark. Retro motorhome rental seemed the perfect choice of business as I have lots of fond memories of going on summer holidays, in the family motorhome with my parents and my two brothers.
