History[edit]

Bunk Campers was established in the summer of 2007. The business is owned and operated by Louise Corken and Keith Charlton. They are also an Invest Northern Ireland client listed company.[2]

Corken and Charlton travelled to Australia and New Zealand in 2006 on the lookout for new business ideas and concepts that could be brought back to Ireland and tailored to suit the needs of the market place. It was during this period that the opportunity for budget campervan hire was identified.[3]
