Happy 1 Ex is our most "EXperienced" 2 person camper van. It has everything you need for cooking and sleeping and is perfect for those who want the quality, service, and reliability of a Happy van but don't mind an older van at a lower price. But just because it's experienced doesn't mean it's not Happy. Our Happy 1 EX category includes 2014-2016 models that are all in tip top shape and ready for adventure. Experience Iceland the Happy way without breaking the bank.
