SAFETY FIRST: That's our motto here at Scamper base-camp, which is why we go that extra mile to ensure that your holiday is safe and enjoyable for all the family. At Scampervanhire we work closely with our local expert mechanics who frequently service and checkour fleet to ensure reliability and safety. All our Scampervans are Gas Certified twice a year at an NCC approved workshop and have CarbonMonoxide alarms fitted as standard. Fire Extinguishers & Fire Blankets are also installed with comprehensive instructions on how to operate in an emergency.
Although Scampervanhire cherish the original interiors and the ambiance that is created, this is never at the expense of safety. All foam is replaced to meet the current Fire Retardant regulations and fabrics are sympathetically selected to ensure they also comply whilst still delivering an attractive and comfortable living and sleeping environment.
Before every hire we even put them through an inspection with an Independent Chartered Engineer to be certain that you are given a safe and reliable holiday home on wheels for your cherished adventure.This pre-hire independent inspection involves a thorough check of the tyres, brakes, steering, suspension,lights, interior, seat belts, engine, cooling system, fuel system, exhaust, transmission & clutch, gear box,drive shaft, electrics & battery, instruments, ancillaries and under body.
It then undergoes a road test and the vehicle exterior is inspected for any dents , scratches, chips or corrosion. Even the tread depths and air pressure levels are noted.The independent inspector will then advise if any work needs to be carried out pre-hire and advises if he is satisfied that the vehicle is safe for hire.His report is then shown to the hirer during collection.
At Base Camp we'll spend a good hour on hand-over to ensure that your comfortable with how to workthe appliances, and drive the classic vehicle, and for extra support we've included VW manuals and Scampervan manuals inside each van.
They give a comprehensive and photographic guide on driving and caring for the vehicle, and operating all equipment.And if you're still unsure then we're always available at the end of the phone for guidance and advice! At Scampervanhire we selected the VW T25 model due to it’s exta space - 5 inches longer and 2.5inches wider, with the spare wheel secured under the front cab (rather than inside the vehicle) the T25has more usable internal space, and is naturally more stable to drive.All our Scampervans have permanent high-top roofs which are fully insulated and carpet lined for warmth,allowing even more space for additional lodgings or storage.
Their water-cooled engines are safer and generally more reliable than the traditional air-cooled campers,and they're more powerful whilst still retaining that sought-after VW purrrrrrr!
With an improved ride and handling, reduced turning circle, improved suspension, and even a Porsche engine in some limited versions, it's hard to imagine why this diamond in the rough has been so overlooked in the past!We believe that the T25 is a real gem, just ready and waiting to take you on your Scampervan adventure!
