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. This vehicle is fitted with speed sensors.
