Iv been doing various projects around Europe for last 8 years including rustic tables and furniture and rustic campervans .
2 week holiday on the Outer Hebrides. Positive feedback - the van is very reliable however there were a number of other areas we felt the van fell short. Bedding given to us smelled of cooking and had to be washed on the first day of our holiday. Electric hookup cable - the van does not have an exterior hook up fitting therefore if you want to use hookup cable you need to hang this through window and keep window open (we had to tape window up so as not to get rain in van). The description of van being 'modern and super cool' we dont feel is a true reflection of the van - it is pretty shabby inside and out. Cool box doesnt function well as a fridge - it was too noisey to leave on at any time. The cooking facility is very basic - a small two ring camping type stove, the sink is mouted on untreated hardboard which isnt ideal to keep clean. The width of bed is ok however if you are taller than 5ft 4inches it's going to be uncomfortable as you'll be unable to stretch out. Lastly we unfortunately left a couple of items in van after initial contact with Jody we heard nothing back despite trying to make contact with him twice and still have heard nothing after 2 weeks later. We are trying to leave realistic feedback to assit any further potential bookers as we did feel very disappointed on picking up van but as holiday was planned we werent in a position to cancel.
Gerald is a bit more used than he appears on the pictures, but everything works fine.
The handover in Edinburgh went without a hitch. Jody showed us everything and also drove a demonstration lap with us. Gerald runs very reliable. We did not use external power at any time but were still able to charge our smartphones during the whole week. We once forgot to turn off the lights for 2 hours during the day, that we had to bridge the battery. But even that was no problem after we found out how to open the bonnet. Luckyly Jody was reachable at short notice and could tell us the trick (Gerald has special needs ;)). Also it was no problem to return the car 3 hours earlier than planned. Only the cleanliness of Gerald did not appeal to us so much. He was a bit grubby. Which, however, could be quickly removed with surface cleaner.
A special thank you to yescapa, which povided us with great and customerfriendly service.
El vehículo esta bien en términos generales, te lleva sin problema a cualquier lugar a pesar de los ruidos que hace. Respecto al anuncio, no tiene WC, no tiene toldo lateral como se anuncia. Le falta un poco de mantenimiento general, algunas bombillas interiores no funcionaban y la nevera se estropeó. Por lo demás, cocina bien y para dormir en cualquier sitio cumple con su función.
Gerald has been a wonderful companion during our trip to Islay! Jody has been great explaining all about the van and his promise of a smooth ride has been kept. Absolutely 5 stars for clarity, honesty and 24h availability from the owner and the same goes for the comfyness and reliability of the well equipped and spacious van. Looking forward to bring Gerald on a new adventure soon!
I felt that this customer has unrealistic expectations of a campervan and should have paid more and booked a motor home as it is not fair to book a budget van that lists exactly what it has and then complain it does not have more .
to note also the customer was smiles on pick up and said nothing of any issues .
befire accepting this client be warned she will probably give you a low review .
the van she booked is amazing and drives perfectly and is well equipped . As you can see from all the other reviews .
