With a hire from GoBongo you get all the fun and freedom of a “classic” small campervan, but also enjoy modern features including : power assisted steering, drivers airbag, fully automatic 4-speed gearbox, and powerful 2.5 litre engines.
Externally our van has electric folding wing mirrors, fog lights, rear spoiler with high level brake light, privacy glass to side and rear windows, towbar with single electrics, and external socket for on site mains electric hook-up. The large lifting rear tailgate provides useful shelter from sun and rain, and the sliding side door has an electric soft-close feature for easy and quiet access with no need to slam the door !
Internal features include electric front windows, remote central locking, heated rear window, separate climate control with AC for front and rear seats, and high level storage cupboards with 12 volt LED downlighters. The side windows have luxury electric descending blinds, plus manual curtains to front and rear of the main cabin which give total privacy. A key feature of the Bongo design is the electric lifting roof which goes up and down at the touch of a button to give extra headroom in the cabin by day, and creates a full double berth above by night. The canvas section of the freetop has zips for light and ventilation, backed up by all round mosquito netting.
For your enetertainment we can provide a DVD player which operates on 12 volt supply, plus stereo CD / radio with 4-speaker system and i-Pod connection leads, 240 volt mains hook-up with multiple socket outlets for lower and upper berths, 12 volt socket outlets to front and rear, with plug-in power inverter to supply 240 volt electronic devices ( laptop, phone, etc ) from 12 volt sockets when off mains. 12 volt systems are backed up by a 100 amphour leisure battery and built in mains charger.
The kitchen unit comes with a double gas hob, a 17 litre 240 volt microwave, and SMEV sink with pumped cold water tap. Our Gower campervan is supplied with a top quality Waeco portable cool-box which will run on either 240 volt or 12 volt supply. This means it is ideal for off-mains sites and festivals if required.
Safety features include : fire extinguisher, fire blanket, first aid kit, warning triangle, emergency high-vis vest, and torch. Our van is equipped with battery operated smoke detectors, for added piece of mind. Full operating instructions will be supplied with the van and its equipement, and all hirers will receive comprehensive personal instruction on handover, backed up with telephone support in case of queries.
The Gower has 6 travelling seats (including the driver), 4 of which have 3 point seat belts, and 2 which are rear facing with 2 point lap belts.
Please note that the front passenger airbag cannot be switched off in either van, making it unsuitable for a rear facing baby seat.
