Meet Dolly; and while I know that you’ve probably already seen, met, and loved her as much as we have, it’s time to break down the nitty gritty of our largest (22 foot to be exact!) home on wheels. Featuring beds at both ends, including the sweetest of bunks, a spacious, fully functioning kitchen area, dining nook and heaps of storage space, Dolly rolls into a camping ground in style.
Utilising our signature brass accents, combined with pastels and quirky prints, we love Dolly’s fresh, retro, coastal vibe. In an effort to salvage as much of the original van as possible, we’ve restored the original handles, cabinetry and dining table in keeping with the van’s heritage. Dolly is a light, bright, breath of fresh air. She is our home away from home, our beach holiday on wheels. She is named to honour the legacy of Dolly Everett, who leaves behind a powerful message, “speak even if your voice shakes.” May her death not be in vain.
