Good Energy, Anna and Shiny Norman

Anna from Good Energy took Shiny Norman out for a little holiday - this is how Good Energy reported it: He may look a bit like the van that stars in Little Miss Sunshine, but our Head of Customer Experience Anna assures us that Shiny Norman was a delight to drive and didn’t misbehave once. One of a fleet of 15 vintage VW campers owned by Good Energy customer O’Connors Campers, Shiny Norman took Anna and her partner on a week-long jaunt around North Devon. “It was just brilliant,” says Anna. “Shiny Norman is lovely to drive. You’ve got to get used to the old gear system and drive a bit more slowly but I loved it; it gives you a chance to take in the lovely scenery and the extra height means you can see so much further. The freedom is fantastic. You’re can just park up at a beach, get out for a play and then pack up to find the next gorgeous campsite.” Browsing the O’Connors Campers website it’s clear that these guys have made quite a habit of giving people very special holidays as well as a brief taste of another way of life. “Everyone beeps and smiles at you as go past,” says Anna. “It makes other people happy just to see you drive by and we were getting that special surf sign, you know the one...” – cue confused hand-waving and finger-pointing – “from other VW drivers. It’s like you’ve joined a special club for a week.”
