About Herdy Campervans


Herdy Campervans are built on a VW T30 highline short wheel base 2.0 TDI and can safely seat / sleep up to 4 people. They have a pop top roof with panoranic canvas which is a breeze to operate. The main bed is of the “RIB Altair” type with the second Reimo bed being housed in the elevating roof.

Each van can be powered either by electric hook-up (if available on the site you’re visiting), or from the heavy duty leisure battery which is continuously topped up by a roof solar panel. The van has two 240 amp sockets and built in USB charging points and the cosy heating system, which runs efficiently from the van’s fuel supply, will keep you toasty all year round.

Inside you will find a built-in pod which houses the gas burner, sink, refrigerator with compact freezer and storage cupboards. Neatly hidden in the van’s door, there’s a folding table for use inside or out, with 2 chairs tucked away in the tail gate storage bag.

The vans have been kitted out with everything you should need to enjoy your holiday so travel light … just bring your bedding (unless you want to check out our hire options) and personal effects.

Please note that we are unable to accommodate pets and operate a non-smoking policy in the vans. (See our other campervan hire policies)
