Basil

Hi I am Basil
I was born on 15th December 1978 and started life as a delivery van. I am a Classic VW Bay with a 1600 air cooled engine which was newly fitted this year, I have also had a new Wesfalia type pop top fitted, my paintwork redone and interior upgraded ready for the summer. I have a two ring gas burner and sink with electrically pumped water, fridge(needs hook-up or engine running, keeps cool for several hours afterwards) electric socket and USB points , leisure battery with electric hook up, interior lights , radio with Bluetooth , full width rock and roll bed and a double bed in the pop top. I have two inertia three point seat belts in the front and three lap belts in the back. I can seat five and sleep four, a further child can sleep in a hammock that goes across the front seat if required, this should be requested at the time of booking.

Driving an old VW like Basil is a great experience, however it is very different from driving a modern car. When you collect Basil we will make sure you are comfortable with how all the equipment works and how to drive him.
