Camp in style with the glossy and gleaming Monty, newly-converted and ready for hire.

Converted Nissan Elgrand campervan Sleeps up to 4

Meet Monty

Monty arrived in the UK from Japan in early 2020. Shortly after, he was converted into a campervan with pop top roof and mod cons added, including fridge, sink and two gas hobs. Thanks to Covid-19 he was marooned on the Isle of Wight over lockdown, but we welcomed him back to Dorset in late June to get him ready for summer hires! More photos coming soon. Monty 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. Monty 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. Get away from it all with Monty - book your campervan adventure today!

"Had the best week away in Cornwall with Monty the campervan! The van had everything you need - camping chairs/table/cooking utensils. I was nervous about driving a van but it's very compact so almost the same as driving a car and you can park anywhere a car would! Great communication with Stefan from booking to dropping off the van at the end of our trip. If you are thinking of doing a campervan trip definitely book through Shore Campers!"

A week exploring Cornwall
"Had an absolute blast in Monty! We travelled on a 2 week road trip up to the Lake District and the Scottish Jighlands, all the way to John o Groats and back, plus everything inbetween! The van drives incredibly, super easy to drive long distance, and is super cosy at night to park up and sleep. Stefan has equipped the campers with everything needed for a great holiday, including all the essentials, plus things you will inevitably need too! Would highly recommend taking one of their campers out and seeing for yourself how much fun they are as it is so worth it!"

A fortnight up to Scotland
"We hired Monty the campervan for three nights in July Stefan was so helpful and reassuring in the booking process as we didn’t know if we would be able to go ahead with our trip due to the pandemic. It all worked out fine and the trip could go ahead. On collection Stefan's instructions for how to use everything were great. Shore Campers had thought of everything. From kitchen roll to bin bags. Monty was lovely to drive, the perfect size and the bed was so comfy. Lovely and clean and we would definitely not hesitate to book with Shore campers again."

Trip up to the Lakes
"As first time campervanners we could not recommend Stefan and Shore Campers enough. From booking to collection the communication was excellent. Monty was a super van, a lovely drive and so well kitted out, everything was thought about. We went to Lyme Regis and stayed in a great family friendly campsite. Thanks to Stefan’s clear explanation before we headed off it all went very smoothly and we had established our camp in a matter of minutes. The wine/beer/milk fridge was great and we had a super adventure."
