Throughout the web, you’ve chosen us! You’ve chosen them: our legendary and unique campers that have over 30 years of stories and roads traveled. So you know, you want this special vacation not with just any car zooming at 130 km/h on highways that don’t exist in Sardinia, but with a vehicle that barely reaches 90 km/h and invites you to slow down, allowing you to enjoy the sun on your face while observing the landscape. You can taste the air that doesn’t just smell like the sea or mountains, but also like the animals that may accompany you on the road. The aroma of aging cheeses or cured hams as you pass by local shops, the sight of elderly people still gathering in the town square, chatting about stories and legends… This is the Sardinia that awaits you, the Sardinia that you discover with our campers.
You just have to take care of them and treat them with respect. They will let you know if you’re going too fast or if something is wrong. You only need to have the sensitivity to listen to them. In return, you’ll be rewarded with the privacy and hospitality that only they can provide, as if you were at home.

We won’t give you a detailed list, you’re capable! But we can advise you to bring only the essentials. Once you’ve checked the weather forecast, calculated the number of vacation days, and know that you’ll have a collapsible 10-liter basin for washing your clothes, as well as clothesline and clothespins for drying them. In larger cities, laundry services and token-operated machines are available. If you tend to get cold easily, we’ll provide you with a complimentary (upon request) down jacket or sleeping bag for cooler nights!

The keyword is: freedom, and the direct synonym is autonomy. Our campers can provide you with that because they are equipped with electrical systems that accompany you at all times, from driving to short and long stops. Here’s a summary:

  • On the road (12V mode active): You can charge your devices using the available USB outlets, use the refrigerator and lighting without any problems, all while charging the service battery!
  • Free camping (220V mode active): USB and 3-way outlets are available, running water for the sink and shower, the refrigerator, and lighting are always at your disposal (with some precautions such as not constantly opening the fridge or leaving the door open, LED lighting allows for reduced consumption, but always with a watchful eye!)
  • Stay in equipped areas (220V mode with cable active): USB and 3-way outlets are available, running water for the sink and shower, the refrigerator, and lighting are always at your disposal. Being connected to a continuous power source, you don’t have to worry about anything. You can also connect chargers for devices like cameras, laptops, etc.

Unfortunately, free camping is not allowed in Sardinia, but that doesn’t prevent our campers from stopping anywhere, including designated parking areas! Their compact size not only allows you to explore the island’s smaller roads, but also enables you to park wherever you want!
