About this RV

We are a small van rental company located just north of Seattle in Bellingham, Washington. Our location is close to the North Cascades Highway, a short drive to the San Juan Island or Port Townsend Ferries and the Tsawwassen Ferry to Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast. We would be happy to help you with your transportation arrangements to our location. Call us at 360-961-9877 or visit us

Van Gogh is a completely refurbished Volkswagon Westfalia camper. Features include new interior and cushions, propane forced air furnace, high efficiency electric refrigerator and auxiliary battery to allow you to be off grid for three days or longer. Safety features include four 3 point seat belts, new larger wheels and tires, improved suspension and bumpers and heavy duty disc brakes. This van comes road trip ready with folding chairs, a small portable table, cooking supplies, spices, coffee and tea. While the van sleeps four, two or three adults or two adults and children will be the most comfortable combination. Every van will have the fabric and curtains steam cleaned, all counters wiped with sanitizing cloth and will have had an Ozone/UV treatment before your rental. The van you pick up will be spotless with all dishes cleaned in a dishwasher. Due to Covid-19 concerns you must provide your own bedding, blankets and towels.

This is our only dog friendly van but we require a $100 cleaning charge and dogs less than 20 pounds must come with a closable carrier. Small dogs run on the table and counter when left in the van and damage the screens.

For an additional fee you may rent a roof box or one of our bike racks. We have a 2 Bike Yakima rack and a 4 Bike North Shore rack. You may not add your own racks or box to our van. This van may not be used for bike shuttles. If there is any evidence of that activity the damage deposit will be forfeited.

You must be able to drive a manual transmission to rent this van.

This lovely couple really enjoys what they do. Be sure to call and chat about all the possibilities, if you don't know where you are going. The vans they have are like brand new, fully refurbished.

Bob was a pleasure to work with. Shared lots of tips and advised us on where to travel, great campgrounds to check out, and even advised us on what to expect when crossing the border into Canada. Van Gough was outfitted with EVERYTHING we needed. Literally unload your groceries, throw in your duffel bag with your clothes, and off you go. Bob has put so much care into his vans - VanGough ran like a champ - and with great gas mileage! The EASIEST camping trip we have ever experienced. Looking forward to booking another adventure through Chuckanut Westfalias.

Our experience couldn't have been any better. Bob was incredible. He helped us plan the perfect itinerary to the San Juan Islands (especially with navigating the ferry schedule and campgrounds over a holiday week). Communication prior to our reservation was super fast and helpful. He picked us up from the bus station and then gave a very thorough walkthrough of the van; the guide you get sent on t…

Cannot speak highly enough of Bob & Maureen. Saw plenty of other Westy's on the road, thought mine was in the best shape. Bob takes great care of it and doesn't take shortcuts on service or updates. Also, if anything does go wrong, he'll have your back.

Chuckanut isn't totally convenient to get to, but the vans are worth it!

This was our second booking with Outdoorsy and our first with Bob and Maureen. It was also our first trip to BC. There is so much to do and we so much to see. We only had three full days with two full days of travel so Bob and Maureen’s recommendations and trip reservations were priceless for an excellent long weekend. The van was amazing, clean and well stocked with the necessities for campin…
