Campervan business proving to be a success

A fully committed campervan fan has turned his passion for the iconic vehicles into a money spinner as he sees his fledgling campervan hire business take off.

Jason Denman has been a mobile home enthusiast for a long time but the fully qualified mechanic only thought about converting his hobby into a job last year when he decided to start a hire business with his two classic VW campervans. The business soon showed signs of promise and Jason is now converting three more vans in a bid to satisfy customer demand and launch his business into another sphere.

He reveals the business that is based in the sleepy hamlet of North Stoke, near Arundel, Sussex was inspired by a family member wanting to see him a little more frequently. He said: “I used to go surfing in Devon a lot and my gran lives down that way. She gave me money for a campervan and I think her idea was to get me to go and visit her more! As I have a mechanical workshop, and that is my full time profession I decided to start restoring VW vans and rent them out as a side project. It’s worked out really well and I’m almost fully booked up until the end of October. People like to get away from London and have a long weekend away and the campervans are perfect for that.”

Customers looking to hire out the vans that are fully covered with campervan insurance will find plenty of places in the UK willing to offer their facilities to families holidaying in such a way. As the passion for a more informal way of holidaying in the UK attracts more and more people, tourist resorts are recognising how valuable motorhome and campervan holiday makers can be to a small local economy and are going out of their way to offer camp site parking.
