Hire company adapts motorhome for divers
Divers can now hire a motorhome from Truro-based Coast2Coast Motorhomes specifically targeted for their needs.
The motorhome, named Coast Diver, sleep and travels six, and has a whole host of features to make diving holidays more comfortable and luxurious. This includes an onboard compressor to refill air bottles, an external shower and drying rack, and a ship to shore radio for emergencies. Plus, there’s a DVD player and diving libraries.
Lou Allen from Coast2Coast explains: “The idea for Coast Diver came from a family connection to the wreck of the ‘Hera’ off Veryan in 1914 and the divers who subsequently found her. The Hera and divers are depicted on the side of motorhome and there is a memorial to them inside also.”
The company consulted with a number of local dive shops and feedback has been very positive it tells us. The motorhome can be hired by a group of divers and Coast2Coast can introduce renters to local dive shops and suggest local campsites if staying in Cornwall. The motorhome is also suitable for a traditional family holiday, if one of the members wants to do some diving.
A percentage of the proceeds for each hire of this vehicle will be donated to the RNLI.
