Rent a vintage VW camper van and tour the west coast! | Costa Mesa, California

If you’re like me, then you’ve dreamed of owning a vintage VW camper van, driving down Highway One, and camping amongst the redwoods. The problem is, keeping these old dogs up and running is no easy task and is it really worth it if you’re only going to use it every now and then? These things are expensive!

Well, your problems are solved! Now you can do all of that without the hassle of owning one! A company called Vintage Surfer Wagons is renting VW camper vans (both automatic and manual). This one is listed on Outdoorsy, which is like an Airbnb for campers and RVs.

Plan your trip and book this vintage camper now. They book fast, so plan ahead and get one while you can!

This camper van is an automatic, so no need to stress about remembering how to drive a manual. It’s a 1974 VW Westfalia, it has a mini-kitchen, sleeps 4 and has a 10 gallon fresh water tank. Vintage Surfer Wagons has a great reputation for keeping their vehicles in great shape, so no worries there either.

I’m thinking of doing this when the kids get a little older and can really enjoy this unique experience. You can pick it up in Costa Mesa and drive north, hitting spots like Ventura, Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Monterey, Santa Cruz, Half Moon Bay, San Francisco, and then north into the Redwoods!

California has some great camping spots along the way, especially just south of Half Moon Bay, so no need to worry about booking hotels. Roughing it (if you can call it that) in this vintage VW is certainly on my bucket list!
