About Indie

Indie is our first electric classic VW Camper Van since 2013 and became available for hire in 2015.

Taking 2 years to source the right team, Indie was originally the perfect 1974 American imported camper with the most suitable conversion pack, squeezing an 88BHP motor and 26kWh of batteries inside. Indie now features a larger battery pack with 40% more range, so you can explore even more of the UK each day on your eDub Trip.

Indie has been featured in VW Camper and Commercial Magazine, The Guardian, Autocar, and Performance VW, not to mention supporting several charities, education settings and events throughout the UK.

Add a Glawning to your Trip

A Glawning (that's a Glamerous Awning) is the perfect addition to your eDub Trip. Drive-away means you can set it up in 10 minutes then leave it on the campsite whilst you take Indie on adverntures!

The Glawning is a great extra bedroom, living room, play space for the kids, or chill space for the adults. Wind and water-tight. It's also great if the weather turns out to be paticuarly British!

Select your dates at the top of the page, and make sure you select the Glawning when you book.

Customer Reviews

We hired Indie for two nights and enjoyed driving her around the beautiful countryside of North Yorkshire. We haven’t experienced camper vans or electric vehicles before, but we were given a detailed tour of Indie and a test drive each, before we set off. We stayed at a lovely campsite at Cliff Farm, near Pickering, and toured the area during the day (we enjoyed some admiring looks in Indie’s direction!). Indie is comfortable and cosy to stay in (even in a very wet November) and is really well-equipped. The induction hob was very useful and easy to use, and we enjoyed cooking (eg. a full English breakfast) and lots of cups of tea and coffee. Hoping to take another trip in Indie (or perhaps another Edub vehicle) sometime 🙂

We booked a car through this company for our holiday in Scotland. Throughout the entire booking process, Kit's humanity and caring was exceptionally evident. I highly recommend ordering through them to anyone who asks!

We took Indie away for the weekend, as a family of four we found the bell tent awning gave us plenty of space especially when it rained. The kids slept really well in the pop up roof and we were comfortable in fold out double bed in the van. The kitchen area is great and the induction hobs make simple dinners super easy. The kids loved indie as she has her own personality and we loved being able to travel sustainably for our holiday. Driving takes a bit of getting used to but the team at edubtrips are very helpful at taking you through this in a test drive. We would highly recommend renting indie to any young family, particularly with the addition of the bell tent awning. You will be sure to turn more heads on the campsite with indie versus any other set up!

Maggie is incredible. We (two adults and Alan the dog) had an amazing three nights on the East Yorkshire Coast. Kit was very helpful in advance of the trip – quickly answering all our queries about range and kitchen equipment. When we arrived – Joss was so considerate with his time in explaining how to get the best out of the van. He was also on hand throughout the trip if we had any issues. The van itself was beautiful – a fine balance of authentic VW character and modern charm. It was a pleasure to drive and turned many heads as we drove through the coastal villages. Everything was on hand – including modern kitchen equipment, fairy lights and a wee radiator. The battery range was perfect, allowing plenty of travel during the day without wasting too much time on the road. And it was very easy to hook up and charge overnight in the campsites as we slept. A memorable and unique experience that we will never forget.

Ahhh it feels almost impossible to sum up how amazing our camper adventure in Maggie was. When we set off we drove through the Dales en route to the Lakes at sunset and I had a little happy cry at how peaceful and special life felt - a sign of all the loveliness that was to come! Kit and the team have done an amazing job at restoring Maggie and you can really feel the love and thought that’s gone into creating her. We loved the swizzly passenger chair, the vintage style, the bright orange interiors, and how much space there was for cooking and hanging out. But most of all we loved how Maggie instantly felt like home. Some practical stuff: The van has a range of 90 miles and at our campsite it took just over a night to charge up fully. We also did some charging up en route so that we could travel as far as we wanted. We incorporated this into the experience though and stopped off in some lovely places to explore whilst the van charged for a couple of hours (would recommend Zap-Map ...

They are just the best. We booked a trip with the converted T2 and couldn’t be happier about it. It’s an experience one of its kind. You need a little bit to get used to the car, but after that, it will be an unforgettable road trip. The team is just fantastic. Very kind and helpful. We had the chance to get to see the workshop as well. We would definitely trust them with our electric conversation as well. In short: 6 stars.

Went on a trip with their fully electric VW camper Indie for a few days. It was very interesting to drive a classic car with all its charming quirks but quickly and quietly being able to take any hills and enjoy the scenery. The staff was very helpful giving me a thorough introduction before I left and even took a short ride with me to make sure I was confident driving on my own. I headed for the coastal area though the moors and had a lovely time. The camper has cutlery and crockery. It lacks sharp knife, washing up liquid, basic spices so be sure to bring that as well as bedding. Will definitely keep in mind if I ever have time to go back and need to rent a camper

We hired Indie the camper for 2 nights & had a great time. Kit spent time with us to explain the possibilities of electric conversion and Joss made sure we were comfortable with Indie before we set off to Whitby. Indie is easy to drive and comfortable to stay in.
