Welcome to our Liberty Campers Blog

Liberty Campers are a company based in Otley and Ilkley, West Yorkshire, who rent out classic type 2 VW campers and modern T5 & T6 campers. Have a look at the website to see our buses, we think you will agree they are fab! Hire a camper for a long weekend, or a week for the ultimate fun and freedom that a campervan can offer. Take look at Dylan our 1963 split screen there is no cooler vehicle on the road for a wedding or to transport the Bride, Groom, Ushers and Bridesmaids to the church.

Dear Tracey

Thank you so much for the wonderful service you provided on Sunday.

The circumstances weren’t so easy, as there was sadness that Katy’s dad wasn’t there to drive her to her wedding.

Dylan and a gaggle of bridesmaids was the perfect solution, and I thank you for the calm, kind and professional job you both did.

The drive over the hills in the sunshine was quite magical.


I have popped something on your facebook page – are you happy to cut and paste what you wish from that and this message for your webpage?

With very best wishes

Eileen Cox

We have just returned Daisy after a long weekend with her, doing day trips from home near Castle Howard out to the coast. She was a brilliant surprise for my daughter having passed her grade 5 clarinet exam, and she was embarassed but chuffed to be met from school by Daisy. The driving was fun, although I never really got the hang of hill starts! I did spend a lot of time smiling and waving at people, which was fab.. We enjoyed sitting out in Daisy in the evening, just chatting and playing music, and having tea and toast in the morning. Daisy was surprisingly spacious and very comfy. My two girls slept out overnight, and were cosy despite it being a cold one.
We really miss her – it was a fun weekend and would urge anyone looking for an unusual, fun, and friendly weekend or week, to contact Daisy’s keepers – Tracy and John, who are so helpful.
We plan to hire yet another one soon – we have our eyes on Percy!

We had a truly marvellous time in Daisy’s company. We travelled up to the Northumberland coast, breaking the journey in each direction with an overnight stop at Robin Hood’s Bay.

Daisy is a delight and the convenience and cosiness of being able to stop and brew up at beauty spots or laybys of our choosing, was just great. It is a definite advantage that the VW camper has over larger campervans/motorhomes, that it provides very comfortable accommodation at night and the convenience of a car during the day for touring.

Driving Miss Daisy was a fairly easy adaptation to make from a more modern car. The gearbox provided the biggest challenge as ‘neutral’ seemed to elude me several times when I was searching for it, mostly at junctions. However, knowing it had to be in there somewhere was a comfort – as the cars behind patiently waited.  Once I had developed the habit of ‘consciously’ taking the engine out of gear, so I knew where the lever was, it became less of a problem. The heater John has fitted is excellent, so we were never cold. It was also good to be able to plug in an MP3 player, listen to our own music and not be hostage to ‘Random FM’.

Fried breakfast never tasted so good as it did each morning sitting at the little table; the little fridge was very efficient and had more than enough capacity for our needs. Next time we might buy the campervan cookbook and try to extend our culinary repertoire.

We were delighted by the whole experience, which we are planning to repeat as soon as we can. Thanks to John and Daisy for an unforgettable trip.
