- Reimo Volkswagen T4 Lucky Star

- Sep 2012
Since retiring we have been thinking about buying a campervan and, having visited quite a few conversion companies over the last few years, we came across Campersales in Burgess Hill. We are so delighted we did! Rob had a very good selection of quality campervans and we instantly set our sights on the white VW T5 Reimo with pop up roof that was parked outside on the forecourt in the sun!
Rob's knowledge and his unbiased advice filled us with confidence straightaway. We had done our research too and, having talked at length with Rob and having spent as much time as we wanted inspecting the van, inside and out (both immaculate), we knew this was a good deal and it was the van for us. There was no sales patter pressure which we also greatly appreciated! Jason gave me an excellent and very thorough one to one 'tutorial' when I returned a few days later to collect the van and I drove it away, confident that I knew what to do with all the gadgets, the pop up roof, the electrics, the awning etc!
The next day we headed up to Scotland and found wonderful stopping places for that all important quick brew! This was just how I imagined it would be … such a feeling of freedom! We drove back down through the Lake District and the west coast of Wales before returning to Brighton. We have loved every minute of it. It's great to drive, easy to manoeuvre through the windy country roads and no problem at all to park or to perform three point turns even in rather crowded Brighton streets! This was just what we were looking for as it is doubling up as our second family car. We are really looking forward to our next adventure in October when we drive down to the South of France.
Rob has been so helpful replying to emails with answers to those questions I forgot to ask when we bought the campervan! I was also grateful to Rob for telling us not to go out and buy everything we thought we might need for the van! He advised us to go away and find out what we did actually need as we travelled for the first time. Wise advice and we are working down the list.
I cannot recommend Rob and Campersales highly enough.
Thank you to both.
