We’re Rod & Charlie and run RetroCampervan because we love VW campers and all that they symbolise to us; fun, smiles, good times and getting back to ‘real’ living. We’ve toured the UK and abroad, spent thousands of hours (and pounds) on bringing back campers from the dead and have enjoyed getting out and about in our campers.
We both believe that we can offer something a little unique and special in the form of our service and our main motivation is a very un-business like desire to see people enjoy themselves when they hire from us. We have, over the years, gained a real insight into what works best when taking a camper away and the knowledge gained also allows us to provide great hire experiences.
Meet the Team
Operations (mechanics and maintenance to most people). Has a love for all things VW and will spend long hours in a cold garage ensuring the campers are in fine fettle.
Interior seamstress & design queen. Has that rare quality in being able to make a camper look homely, stylish and practical. Will have worked out what style salt & pepper grinder suits best and how to ensure the ironed duvet is as snug and warm as it is chic.
Our two young children. They have been our test team and are instrumental in ensuring what we hire is practical, enjoyable and safe – if it passes their abuse it’s good for anyone!
Our kittens. Not really contributing much to the business but they are both cute and part of the family.
