Jude is new for 2020 - ready and raring to go!

Converted Nissan Elgrand campervan Sleeps up to 4

Meet Jude

Jude was converted at the start of 2020 having been recently imported from Japan. He has a sink, two gas hobs, top-loading fridge and an easy to use pop top roof. Jude can sleep two adults on the rock and roll bed down below, and up to two (small) children or one adult in the pop top roof. For a bit more space or even an additional sleeping area, you can add an inflatable drive-away awning to the hire. Jude is a Nissan Elgrand (a luxury MPV in Japan), and a really easy drive with its 3.5 litre engine, automatic gearbox and reversing camera. The vehicle isn't much bigger than your average people carrier, yet has everything you need to make your adventure fantastic, including some nifty storage solutions, sun canopy and all you need for cooking and living on the road. Create memories that will last forever on an adventure with Jude - book him today!

"We would highly recommend Shore Campers! They are so helpful and professional from the moment you contact them and have thought of everything you might need in the van. We took Jude to Scotland in September and had the best time. Jude is a dream to drive (and I don't really even like driving!) and we did all our own cooking - the fridge is spacious and there's plenty of storage space. If you're thinking of hiring a camper, definitely go with Shore Campers!"

"This is a really excellent friendly, family firm based near the south coast. Their welcome was great but, most importantly, the vehicle provided was outstanding. It was spotlessly clean, provided with every possible necessity for time away from home and drove superbly. I can recommend Shore Campers for a camper van hire without reservation or hesitation."

"On deciding to hire a campervan for the very 1st time, daughter’s idea, and not being a fan of camping anyway, I took the plunge and looked at local websites and was impressed straight away by Shore Campers, booked Jude for 3 nights. On arrival to collect Stefan gave a detailed handover of the van and I was really impressed at how friendly and helpful this man was, we had the best time and I would highly recommend this company to anyone who is a keen camper or novice like myself, the van was a pleasure to drive, very well equipped, and the freedom was amazing after working from home during Covid! Thankyou again Stefan and Jane and look forward to seeing you and booking again soon."

"Absolutely fantastic experience. We went on convoy with three vans in total and had a great time. Stefan is wonderful to deal with and very helpful. The vans are perfect and kitted out extremely well. Would definitely recommend and will be going on another trip with Shore Campers soon!"
