The Danbury family in the U.K. just can’t get out of the ‘70s. But we think that’s great, because they have taken regular VW campervans and turned them into something a bit more luxurious.
Take the Danbury “Rio.” It has a modern water-cooled engine, full-length kitchen unit furniture, 40-liter fridge, table, wardrobe, double bed, and optional roof bed. It’s a bit cozier than an RV, but it has just about all the luxuries. Prices for the Type 2 “Rio” start at $40,000.
If you don’t want to buy your own personalized “Rio,” you can rent one from other U.K. companies such as O’Connors Campers (from around $500), which has a fleet of 11 VW campervans. Or, rent one from Seven Degrees West (from around $500) which, with the help of Carbon Footprint, will offset the van’s carbon emissions by planting a tree for every trip taken in one of its vehicles. This means that anyone wanting to relive their hippie days can do so, all the while knowing they’re having fun and staying green.
