Our motorhomes were converted by Hymer, a German company renowned for the quality and design of their motorhome conversions.

The creation of a sense of space, luxury, reliability and of course practicality has always been Hymer’s trademark. Add to this the quality of the base vehicle, a Mercedes, and you have a motorhome from within which to experience the wonders of the UK.

Vehicle manufacturers, like people, have good and bad years. The late 80s and early 90s for Mercedes vans were good years. Many mechanics and people in the know, will go out of their way to purchase Mercedes vans from this era.

All of our vehicles are regularly serviced and checked for signs of wear and tear. We have fitted an engine management system that allows us to monitor the usage and style of driving on each hire; in this way we can try and predict damage and wear before it becomes an issue.

The Mercedes base vehicles were and are renowned for their 1/2 million kilometer plus lifetimes and as such we have no hesitation in providing you with them for your perfect getaway/holiday/festival experience.

However things can and do go wrong, that is an unfortunate fact of life, and that is why we provide breakdown cover that includes roadside repair and onward travel as standard.

So rent from us with peace of mind; safe in the knowledge that everything that can be done has been done to ensure your trouble free time with one of our retro vehicles.
