The Black Douglas is brand new to the Wild Campers fleet for the 2017 season. His stable name is The Black Douglas but on a day to day basis he goes by Dougie.
Dougie was converted in 2016 and is based on a 2015 VW T5 Highline. He is powered by a 102HP diesel engine and has a five speed manual gearbox. He boasts air conditioning, electric windows, mirrors, parking sensors, cruise control and 18″ alloys riding on lowered suspension.
Inside Dougie has an impressive six travelling seats. He can sleep two downstairs in the extra wide Reimo Varotech 333 seat and two upstairs in the extra high HiLo pop top. The Variotech is one of the very best seats on the market and can slide back and forward to adjust carrying space. The HiLo is definitely the highest pop top on the market – loads of head room up there – and this one offers the scenic option which means the canvas can be zipped right back to open the whole roof up to the elements.
There’s a 40 litre fridge and cooking can be done either inside or outside on the portable Cadac Safari Chef. There’s also a pocket rocket for a quick cup of tea.
To keep you cosy at night there’s a 2KW heater and black out curtains. And the 12 volt auxiliary power system means that you’ve got ample lighting. There’s also 12 volt car sockets, a USB charge socket and an inverter which means you can charge your own laptop or portable DVD player. And if you’re in a campsite you can plug in to 240 volt power.
All pots, pans and crockery are included. There’s also a teapot and a cafetiere.
For safety there’s a fire extinguisher as well as a CO2 detector.
As optional extras we have offer one of the finest awnings on the market, a bike rack for up to four bikes, a Weber Smokey Joe BBQ and crisp, clean linen sets. We also offer transfers from both Glasgow and Edinburgh airports.

The VW T5 is the perfect camper van for Scotland’s smaller roads and ferries. And in terms of T5 conversions The Black Douglas is about as good as camper van hire in Scotland gets.
And don’t forget – The Black Douglas comes with free sat nav.
