Our different campervans for hire: which campervan is right for you?

Your mum always told you to go play outdoors. And so you’ve decided to go camping. All well and good, but do you know which campervan is actually the one for you? Or perhaps you’ve been using the same model for years now and fancy trying something new? We can help you decide. Hire a campervan: read on to find out about our different roadsurfer models and the differences between them:

5-person family camper

The Ford Nugget with rear kitchen and pop-top roof

Facts:

  • 5 metres long | 2.3 metres wide (including wing mirrors) | 2.06 metres high
  • 185 hp / automatic
  • Sleeps 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 children
  • Rear kitchen with headroom
  • Towing hitch
  • Air heater
  • Outdoor shower

If you like your breathing space, then a family camper is the one for you, with room for five people, a rear kitchen and pop-top roof. Our “Camper Cabin” has enough space for a family with up to three children, or four adults. Its compact size makes it easy to drive, but despite appearances, there’s also ample space, with plenty of room for storage too. If roads are steep or icy, it’s no problem thanks to the 185 hp and automatic transmission. The built-in kitchen at the rear of the camper is another crowning feature. The living/sleeping area is separate, almost like a small apartment, and creates that all-important homely atmosphere. And thanks to the rear-opening pop-top roof, you can even stand up in the kitchen.

The 2-by-1.4-metre bed is situated in the roof and provides enough space for two. It features a cold foam mattress placed on top of a sprung base.  Another two to three sleeping spaces can be created by folding down the seats below (including comfort sleeping cover, 1.31 metres x 1.91 metres). The towing hitch also means that you can bring a bicycle trailer or any recreational equipment along with your Camper Cabin. There’s also an air heater for holidays in the mountains and snow.

At just 1.99 metres in height, the camper is the optimal size for fitting in any underground carpark and is also classed as a normal car in every country. The interior of the Surfer Suite is minimal in design and the vehicle stands out from the crowd thanks to the hidden storage space and array of practical features. The combination of the roof bed and comfortable sleeping surface in the inner space mean that the camper can easily sleep four. The upper bed features a slatted frame and comfy mattresses. Windows run around the pop-top roof to offer a 360-degree view and they are also fitted with mosquito nets – don’t endure that pesky buzzing around your ear. Adventure seekers need their sleep, after all. A plug socket and lights are located directly next to the roof bed for the more modern travellers among us: low batteries and nighttime disorientation are a thing of the past.

The fitted kitchen features a gas stove so you can whip up tasty meals for family and friends to enjoy around the camper’s built-in table.  Driving in the Surfer Suite is also a pleasurable experience thanks to the multitude of technical features. The GPS system, rear-view camera and adaptive cruise control allow you to spruce up your adventure with a dash of comfort. Well, it can’t hurt! The only thing it can’t do is travel through time, well, not yet anyway. We’ll have to wait for the flux capacitor to be invented first.

There’s a large double bed at the rear of the camper, with an additional two sleeping spaces in the roof thanks to the pop top.

There’s no parking space too small – thanks to the integrated rear-view camera and park assist system. No more lugging a bulky mobile home around trying to find a campsite – with the Westfalia Columbus 540D, you can experience the joys of flexible travel without totally foregoing the luxuries.

And if you shudder at the idea of just having a quick wash at the sink, this is the campervan’s crown jewel: there’s a small bathroom! Nighttime trips to the campsite toilet block are so passé. After an action-packed day filled with hustle and bustle, you’ll be singing the praises to having your own private space under a nice, hot shower.

Another crowning feature is the fully-equipped kitchen, where you can leave the sliding door open to get that outdoor feeling. It’s a great space to cook and spend time together.

You can still enjoy a lovely meal in the open air thanks to the 31-litre compressor cool box and portable gas stove with two gas cartridges provided. What’s more, there’s a kitchen box filled with camping pots and pans, an espresso maker, cups and glasses, plates and bowls, cutlery, cooking utensils, salad bowl, corkscrew, sharp knife and washing-up bowl – there may not be a kitchen, but we’ve made sure you have everything else. The front seats can be rotated to create a space where everyone can eat or play games together.

Hire a campervan: your “Beach Hostel Deluxe”

The Beach Hostel Deluxe is perfect for families with three children, as all three places on the backseat are equipped with Isofix for attaching child seats and can be folded down to make a roomy sleeping space. And this is where the extra space gained from the lack of kitchen comes into play: the backseat can be folded down into a wide bed, providing enough space even for two adults to get a comfortable night’s sleep together with their small child. The pop-top roof opens manually and provides room for two more sleeping spaces.  When the children get tired, they can nestle down and make themselves comfortable in the pop-top roof. All you have to do is pull the safety screen shut to make the roof into its own room and the adults can carry on chatting below – just like a 2-bedroom apartment, only on wheels.

Camp out on the roof

You can sleep under the stars in the pop-top roof of the Mercedes Marco Polo Horizon

But don’t fret – you’ll have everything you need to whip up a meal with the kitchen box, portable gas stove and compressor cool box. In just a few quick steps, the backseat can be transformed into a comfortable bed which sleeps up to three people (two adults + one infant). And you don’t have to give your luggage much thought either – practical storage room can be found under the folded-down bed. There are also two compartments under the seats which provide additional storage space.

Why settle for 5 stars when you could go on an 1000-star holiday? Make your getaway unforgettable by enjoying a night under the stars in the manual pop-top roof which provides two additional sleeping spaces. The four-wheel drive makes the Horizon a trusty companion on steep mountain or snowy roads and, thanks to the towing hitch, there’s also the option of attaching a bicycle carrier or trailer. If your eyes are getting heavier and the route seems endless, then Attention Assist comes into play. It immediately detects fatigue and sends a visual and audible signal to tell you that it is time to take a break. This prevents you from momentarily falling asleep, meaning that you stay safe on the road. Driving through the night is never a popular choice, but you can take the worry away with the sophisticated LED lighting system in the Mercedes Marco Polo Horizon which automatically adjusts the headlights to the driving situation.

Hire a campervan: your “Horizon Hostel Deluxe”

You no longer have to choose between a city break and nature getaway.

At just two metres in height, the agonising search for a suitable parking space is a thing of the past and your camper will fit in any underground carpark. The Park Assist system with rear-view camera is a huge help when trying to pull into or out of a parking space.
