Morecambe and Wize – vintage VW camper van hire in the north of England

Note all articles are independently researched and written by myself. However, if you buy via one of the links it may be an affiliate and I may earn a small commission.


We have featured a few vintage VW camper van hire companies in the past – but all have been based in the south of England. Well, Morecambe and Wize offers an alternative – operating out of the north.

As the name suggests, Morecambe and Wize operates out of Morecambe (rapidly becoming retro central), offering the hire of a fully-modernised 1972 classic VW Devon Moonraker camper van for use around Morecambe, the Lake District, up into Scotland or indeed anywhere you like – there’s on mileage limit.


The van itself is equipped with the original Devon interior and pop-up canvas, along with with original cabinets, housing a gas cooker, water container; sink with tap and a retro coolbox. It offers sleeping room for five (two adults, three kids) and as a concession to the modern era, a CD player with iPod attachment.

Prices vary according to time booked and season, with weekend hire starting at £275, week bookings from £450.
