We are a small van rental company located just north of Seattle in Bellingham, Washington.

We would be happy to help you with your transportation arrangements to our location. Call us at 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. Permanently mounted solar panels allow you to camp off grid. 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. We can provide freshly laundered sleeping bags and pillows upon request.

This is a dog friendly van and we require a $100 cleaning charge. 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. New Subaru engine and rebuilt transmission were installed in 2021.

What an awesome experience! Bob is truly passionate about his vans and it shows in the precise attention to detail that is everywhere in and out of the vehicle. We rented for a week and went to the Cascades to camp in the van. The wonderful heat kept us toasty, the separate battery insured we could listen to music and charge our camera, flashlights and phones all night if we wanted to and not run down the car battery- the swiss cookware is so nice, I might have to splurge and buy some for my home! All the communication was right on and we feel like we have a VW uncle now in Bellingham. Wonderful trip- Thanks Bob!

We totally enjoyed our camper van rental from Chuckanut. The reservation was easy to do and the owners answered any questions. The van is obviously well taken care of and the features were well explained at pickup. Everything we needed was provided. We had no problems with the van during our rental. We had one simple question during our rental which was resolved quickly with a call to Bob. Highly recommend Chuckanut and we would chose them again for future trips.

Perfect VW camper with upgraded brakes and USB power. Clean and kitchen packed with a lot of details. Nothing missing. Bob was superb with instructions when we picked up camper and very flexible as to when we returned RV. It was An easy drive to Mt Rainer. Drove well on highway and in the mountains. We’re already planning our next trip to Mt Baker.
