Barb sleeps comfortably 4 passengers so we would recommend her to families with kids on the first place. A large main bed for 2 with a proper mattress will fold in to give you more space inside if you need to cook, change your clothes etc. A second bed can be set up underneath the main bed and will comfortably accommodate another 2 travelers. The lower bed is foldable and removable (in case of 2 travelers only we’ll remove the bed, and it will provide you with lots of extra storage).
Two 80L water tanks (fresh and grey) provide enough water for cooking in fully equipped kitchen – large fridge, 2 burner stove top, pan, pot, plates, bowls, mugs, cutlery, French press etc. A large inside table sits comfortably 4 people and folds down to give you an extra space if needed.
Barb camper van will save your money for better places than the gas stations - the consumption is only 10L/100km (24 mpg)! The solar system allows you to charge your devices (USB and 110V outlets) anywhere you go. A roof window and a ceiling fan provide fresh air circulation during the summer nights and air-condition will keep you cool if driving on hot Okanagan highways. Barb is also fully isolated, and we installed a strong diesel heater so that will keep you warm in case of cold mountain nights.
Barb is 9ft tall and 19ft long - you will need this dimensions for your ferry reservations.
Camping chairs and a portable table to enjoy a campfire included for free (upon request).

We called Simona home for 5 nights as we explored the Olympic Peninsula in April. She was perfect for our family of 3 (2 adults and our 1.5 year old); it so nice that there is ample room for a car seat. The bed was comfy and the heater kept us warm on the cooler, rainy nights by the coast. Simona was stocked with everything we needed and there is so much storage space it was easy to keep everything organised. Lucie and Pavel are such a delight to communicate with. Lucie went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed for our trip. She also gave a really good orientation and made sure we were comfortable with the Van before we left. We had the most luxurious time with Simona and would 100% recommend renting from Lucie and Pavel.

Great van, well finished and comfortable to sleep in. We rented the van for 4 nights as a family of 4 with 2 kids aged 9 and 13. The main bed is large and very comfortably sleeps 2, but could fit a 3rd smaller child. Although the table turns into a twin bed that could fit 2, we felt this was a little squashed for 2 bigger kids, so we had our 9 year old sleep on a thermarest in the main walkway under the main bed. There is a spacious area under the queen, but you need to be willing to fit thru the space to get to it. Need to take a little lamp to see in there. It can also be accessed via the back doors. We camped off grid and relied on the solar panels for 4 nights. We had enough power to keep the fridge going and the fan on at night. Overall, great experience and we loved having the van. Lucie and Pavel are great and are very helpful, informative and easy to work with. Thanks so much to them for all their insight into how to buy our own van.

We had such a good time with Mr. Cap during our 3 weeks trip on Vancouver Island!
It was really a pleasure to rent from L&P. In the months prior to our vacation, Lucie took care of the practical stuff and was very helpful in answering any of our questions. On the day we picked up the van, Pavel gave us a very detailed explanation of all the functionalities of the van before we started our trip. From the first moment we felt comfortable and safe driving the van on the road.
The van is not only beautiful, but also very well designed from a functional point of view. It contained everything we needed: 2 spacious double beds which were very easy to install, more than enough usb ports and an electricity socket to charge the camera battery, a large inside dining table for the rainy days, camping chairs, a kitched unit with fridge/ freezer/ stove/ sink with large water reservoir, 2 ventilators to get fresh air during the nights, solar panels (we never had to plug in on the campgrounds), … .It was more than spacious enough to comfortably fit our family of 4, and even our luggage for 3 weeks fitted in the cabinets. During our trip we got a lot of compliments from other campers on the van, unfortunately we always had to say it was not ours?...
We had a great time, and also our kids really enjoyed this experience. If we would come back to Canada, we would definitely rent again with L&P. Lucie and Pavel are both very warm people and go that extra mile, they run their business with passion and we could feel that in every aspect of our rental experience with them. Thank you Lucie and Pavel for helping to make this a memorable vacation!
