twitter cover 2

Port Solent has teamed up with VDub Junkie Campers this Easter to provide you with a chance to win the weekend hire of a VW Camper Van, ferry travel to the Isle of Wight and £100 spending money. The stunning 1965 split screen self-drive VW camper van, or ‘Sunny’ as she is fondly known, will be on display at Port Solent throughout the Easter holidays so you can truly appreciate her vintage beauty.


A rare model in sunset pink with Louvre windows, ‘Sunny’ boasts an almost intact original interior including the ‘Rock ‘n Roll’ bed, pop top and storage cupboards galore. She seats 5 and sleeps 2 comfortably, and comes with all you’ll need for your trip from retro kitchen equipment and a BBQ through to a vintage radio and all the home appliances you’ll need, as well as an electric hook up.

‘Sunny’ and one other similarly head-turning modern T5 are both also available for hire for a trip to the beach, a unique honeymoon to the New Forest, or that surfing trip to Cornwall, in fact any break away you or your family have in mind. You can even bring the pooch in your life.

Vintage, classy and very beautiful, ‘Sunny’ has stacks of character, so don’t miss out on your chance to win a well-deserved weekend break away with Port Solent & VDub Junkie Campers. Visit us at Port Solent to enter between Friday, 3rd – Sunday, 19th April.
