How to plan your trip?

WHICH CAMPER VAN IS THE RIGHT FOR ME?

We offer variety of different type of camper vans for every taste and wishes. Choosing the right one depends on your interests and amount of time you have for your trip.

NOSTALGIC ADVENTURIST

If you are searching for nostalgia, adventure and unique experience, then VW T3 or LT 28 would be the best choice. We are talking about old school vans that bring a smile to your faces without knowing when and why. You need a bit more time and relaxed tempo with old school camper vans. Which is great. We are living too fast and this vans force you to slow down and take it easy. You will be grateful to us at the end that you couldn’t use the highways. You will see 10 x more and experience true local scene.

NOSTALGIC EXPLORER

Somewhere half way between retro and modern are our T4 models like Triglav, Jerry and Katina.  They are still old and have big soul, but at the same time faster and more equipped as T3 models. You can use the highway with them, vignette is included in the basic quote. Beside highway usage also mileage limit is 300 km`s in comparison to VW T3 models where mileage limit is 250 km`s per day.

MODERN NOMAD

If you want to move faster and your preference is to see more, then our VW T5 models like Cefizelj, Jasna and VW Touran Tara are perfect for you. They have AC, airbags and all modern equipment you need to travel and enjoy road trip.
