“We would like to express our thanks to Ian and Becca at Classic Campers, having just spent 5 days in Daisy to fulfil a T2 dream. From start to finish the experience was fantastic from the information on the website, ease of booking and excellent communication. We arrived to a very warm welcome and detailed talk through the van including the little extras you wouldn’t think about needing. Daisy is an fantastic van if a little quirky ( it’s a T2 after all) the modern 1.4 engine is great and dealt with the highlands hills perfectly. Wanting the full experience we did both wild camping and campsite, there was nothing like waking up in a remote glen making coffee and bacon butties, taking in the view and tranquility after having a good nights sleep in comfort and warmth, then simply just driving away. Daisy gets looks and attention everywhere and was certainly a great tool for meeting people. In all we loved Daisy and would not hesitate to book again. For me it was a bucket list tick, but after 5 days in Daisy it was more than a tick, it was a V Dub dream that I’ll never forget. We highly recommend Classic Camper Holidays for their first class service and first class vans. Daisy is campervantastic!!! Helen, Dave and Aaron.” received via e-mail, May 2013
