We had such a great experience renting the VW Bus! Bill gave us a walk around the whole bus to go over everything we would need to know. Everything worked perfectly and we enjoyed camping in the bus. We had 2 adults and 2 adult sized kids sleep and hang out in and around the bus. We camped at Ventura Beach RV camp ground. We had about 15 people come up to us to compliment us on the VW bus. Awesome time. We would use Vintage Surfari Wagons again!!

Thank you for fulfilling my husband's dream of "owning" a VW bus. We made so many memories over the course of such a short time. It is my hope that we can come back to the west coast and rent again.

Incredible! The van itself was very clean and super well stocked. They have thought of everything you could need and all the van is missing is yourself and food! Their customer service is great and they are available to answer all questions and offer suggestions for the trip if need be! Highly recommend and we will be back!
