Ruby was our first camper and therefore has a special status at the company. Restored to a luxury level inside and out she has had a complete exterior restoration as well interior refit recently to provide one of the most stunning camper hires in the UK. The complete Glampervan!
Due to her age Ruby is only for travelling around Hampshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight and pets are not allowed onboard. Use our Campervan Finder to pick the campervan based on where you need to go and to see our pet friendly vans.

It took a while to get use to, but Ruby had everything we needed for a short break. It put a big smile on our face as we drove along.
We deliberately hired a range of ages and types to get the full VW campervan experience for our party of 8 adults and 1 toddler (we hired 4). Although the layouts were slightly different each was well appointed and supplied with all the basics you would need for a short stay. The ability to hire bedding was useful for those who came down by train from London.
Once we left the depot and got onto the open road it was a magical experience to drive and to also receive the waves and smiles from passing motorists and also pedestrians. The driving experience is unique but once you’re used to it, it’s pure pleasure and it’s hard not to stop smiling the whole time. The van had everything we needed for our trip (as described on the web site) and everything worked as expected with no issues. I would thoroughly recommend the whole experience to anyone and will be looking to make further bookings ion the future
She's just bursting with personality.
