“Livin' the Tangerine Dream.....”
Reviewed October 16, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We had a lovely weekend with Apricot ( which we rechristened The Tangerine Dream) courtesy of a gift voucher from our daughters. Can't say we slept in her - too cold in October - but we took her to Fernhurst where we dispensed tea and cake to our walking group before and after a good long walk, and then to Portsmouth for a lovely day at the seaside. Would definitely do it again - maybe for longer next time and in the summer. Highly recommended.

“Great Campers and our son loved it.”
Reviewed October 10, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We spent 3 nights in peaches down in Dorset. Found a great campsite near corfe castle which we used as our base. Was great to be driving round in a camper much more chilled and you can always stop and make a cup of tea!

It's a great little business and would highly recommend renting from here.

Thanks to Rod.

“Wonderful Mango Time”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We hired Mango, a delightful little camper, from Rod at Retro and we had a brilliant time. She drove beautifully and we easily covered the roads down to Devon, enjoying the driving as much as the camping.
Being the back end of the season we missed not having any heating on a couple of days but it didn't spoil the wonderful time we had. Rod was very friendly and informative and would definitely recommend both Rod and Mango. Thanks

“friendly efficient service. Great vans.”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We hired a T5 from Rod and Charley. They run a friendly and efficient business taking time to explain the different functions on the van. Our weekend away was very comfortable and great fun.

“A great holiday”
Reviewed August 19, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We took the Kiwi campervan on a 10 day trip to Devon and Cornwall and had a great time. The vans are old and not fast so it takes you back to the 80's and relaxes you. We had no problems and the Kids loved spending time in the van.
Rod is a nice Guy and explained everything clearly. We recommend RetoCampervans for a really good and memorable holiday:0)

“Our Camper Van experience”
Reviewed August 16, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We hired a VW camper van for one week Rod made the whole process of hiring the camper smooth and easy he took time to explain and show us various functions such as putting up the roof and bed. The camper was in good condition, easy to drive and comfortable to sleep in. We really enjoyed our holiday and would definitely use Retro Camper Vans again.

“Kiwi was a joy to drive and a wonderful home away from home!”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My first experience of a 1970s VW Camper was in the 70s when I was a young boy. I still have fond memories and my wife and I wanted to create memories for my children with a 1970s camper too. We hired Kiwi for a night and she did not disappoint. Spending a very wet few days with her it took a while to get comfortable, however as soon as the sun shone and we were able to move around freely outside we settled in and grew to love the experience. Driving this camper was a wonderful experience and taking a more relaxed approach to life was truly enlightening. We will definitely be back to hire again and my only change would be to add the awning to the hire, in case of torrential rain and to give us space to move our belongings around during the trip. Thanks for the memories Kiwi and Rod at Retro Campervan!
