Such is the growing demand for hiring retro camper vans that a vehicle hire firm from North Wales has doubled its fleet of VW’s. The Jolly Good Van Hire company, which has its headquarters in Wrexham as well as a branch in Deeside, added two classic VW California vans to their fleet in 2012, but are now unable to meet the demand for then.
Mark Hughes is the director of the company which is based on the Pandy Business Park, has said that when they first introduced the two unique camper vans into their fleet last year they had no inkling of how popular they would prove to be with many people wanting to hire them to take the proverbial trip down memory lane.
He went onto say that they had decided this year to add another two so they had four California vans available to those who wanted to hire them, ensuring that less people were disappointed at not being able to get hold of one for their holidays.
Mr Hughes added that the company was delighted with how many bookings they already have for June and July and he blamed the poor weather over Easter as a major reason why people hadn’t been able to get away for a break during this time. He also finds it very interesting that when they speak to prospective customers ringing up about the vans they often say that they are looking to explore the UK and enjoy the beauty that was on the doorstep.
As far as the freedom to explore in concerned, there is no better mode of transport than a camper van, and those with a penchant for reliving the past, being in a classic VW camper is the key to unlocking great memories from the past, as well as creating new ones.
