About Us

Ben and Jemma are campervan enthusiasts, evangelists and advocates! We love all things van, and we can’t wait to introduce you to one of our campers.

The Blue Dog Campervan Co is an evolution of our previous camper hire company, which we operated when we were based in Edinburgh. Following our move to Cornwall we decided that our previous name – The Edinburgh Campervan Co – was perhaps no longer fit for purpose.

Prior to relocating, we spent a year travelling in our own campervan with our children. We covered 11 European countries, and some 20,000 miles during this year…we love the campervan lifestyle even more than before we left (and we were campervan enthusiasts then too!).

We’re based in beautiful Cornwall, close to Newquay airport and main line train stations, and a great starting point for your own adventure.

We know Cornwall inside out (almost as well as we know our own campervans), and can happily provide you with proposed itineraries for your trip.

Most importantly we care that you have a good time in our van, and a great experience when you deal with us. We want to see you again, hiring from us again on your next visit to Cornwall.

Our vans, whether you opt for the back to basics two berth, or our all bells and whistles four berth, are meticulously maintained. The vehicles are fully insured (more about this in our ‘nitty gritty‘ section), have all the equipment you need, and include comprehensive breakdown cover.

We’re not new to this business, we are passionate about our products and Cornwall, and we are nice and easy to work with. After all, we really do want your holiday to be nice and relaxed…

Campervan Builds & Conversions

But wait, that’s not all we do!

Hiring a campervan can often be the start of something exciting and it’s a good way to see if you would like your own. We can offer a full lifecycle of testing a van, buying one or even converting a van. The beauty of building something yourself is that you get to choose the ideal form and function that suits you.

At The Blue Dog Campervan Co we tailor each build to you, combining your wishes with our expertise. Ben has done many conversions from small changes and improvements to kitting out a whole van. We are constantly looking at new designs and ways to improve our own vans.

If you are interested in a custom van it is best to get in contact with us and we can start talking about building your own bespoke camper.
