The Cornwall Camper Company’s latest edition, Genie the VW Camper, is sunshine on wheels and an absolute joy to feast your eyes on.
Genie the VW was a rotted out old beast, looking haggard, unloved and needy. We have renovated her into a confident, startlingly beautiful road hugging camper.
She is a 1975 panel van conversion with an original viking pop top and a 1600 engine.
Genie is already clocking up memories, and the first booking resulted in an engagement! We can’t imagine a better way to start her life with The Cornwall Camper Company.
Genie is not the shy and retiring type, she turns heads, left, right and centre, and we have one condition if you book her. You have to wave at everybody who waves at you!
We need to let you know though, driving an old VW like Genie is a pretty awesome experience, but it is certainly different from driving a modern car! The wonderful Ben gives a great driving lesson when you come to pick up the camper but it may take a little while to get used to how the gears work and where the handbrake is!
Find out below about Genie’s “excess baggage” and if there is anything we have missed off that would make your holiday with her perfect, then just ask. We – and she, aim to please.
