Converted Nissan Elgrand campervan Sleeps up to 4

Meet Ned

Ned is a recently converted (in early 2022) campervan, ready for adventure. He is our only campervan that has three belted seats in the rear, meaning families of five can have the roadtrip of a lifetime! He's got an extra wide rock and roll bed downstairs for your comfort. Ned has a sink with running water, two hobs, a drawer fridge and an easy to use pop-top roof. He comes with a sun canopy, outdoor table and chairs, and all the kitchen equipment and extras you'll need. Two adults can sleep on the main rock and roll bed, and up to two (small) children or one adult in the pop-top roof which is slightly larger than a standard single and holds up to 90kgs. We also have an inflatable driveaway awning with internal bedroom which can be added to the hire (see extras page) for more sleeping/space options - especially for families of five! Our campervans are all fantastic to drive with an automatic engine, and reversing and side cameras - and not too different from driving a car. Ned fits in a standard parking space. Create memories that will last forever on an adventure with Ned - book him today!

"We hired the campervan for 6 nights and everything about Shore Campers, form their pre trip e-mails to handover and return was first class. Stefan is warm, welcoming and very enthusiastic. We didn’t meet Jane but her touches (such as bunting and lovely cups and plates) were very evident. Carefully thought out CoVid necessities such as a Porta Potti and loo tent, wipes, anti bacterial spray etc, made our trip really easy. Dale is lovely to drive, comfortable to sleep in and Shore Campers are an excellent hire company. Thank you Stefan (and Jane) you deserve much success."

"This was our first time hiring a campervan and it went incredibly smoothly. The campervan (Ned) was well laid out and had all the necessary extras (kitchen equipment, torch etc,) and lovely details too. The communication before and during the hire was excellent and really helpful. Stefan explained everything we needed to know and the online guidebook had everything we needed to know. Stefan's enthusiasm for campervans is infectious and I wouldn't hesitate to hire from Shore Campers again."

"Perfect from start to finish! We hired the van for a three night trip to West Bay with 2 adults and 2 children. The communication from Shore Campers was phenomenal throughout and Stefan was incredibly helpful. The van itself had clearly been looked after well and was really nice to drive. The Paddle boarding experience was part of our package and was excellent fun. We hired the awning and found that to be a huge help for storage. Shore Campers had thought about the impact of Covid on campsites and had altered the equipment included in the hire to suit. We would strongly recommend the Shore Camper team."

"Hiring a campervan for the first time was such a fantastic experience with Shore Campers I can't wait for my next trip! I hired Ned who came very well equipped and was such a pleasure to drive. The whole experience from the super efficient and intuitive online booking system (with loads of info plus guides) through to the personal and warm friendly service from Stefan all added to making my trip amazing - I can't rate the whole experience with Shore Campers highly enough and look forward to hiring Ned again - or one of his compadres - in the future."
