If you've never experienced a camping trip in a Westy, you haven't really lived! Sure, you can get one of those yuppy things with all the modern amenities and giant engines, but what fun is that? Westies have a cult following due to their originality and quirkiness, and if this is your first time using one, you'll understand why.
Russell comes fully equipped with the original camping features from the Westfalia shop in Germany in 1984. Because he is a Wolfsburg edition, the seats are extra thick for comfy road trips. The two burner stove and mini fridge run on propane. If you want on-board electricity, you can plug Russell into an RV hookup. To utilize running water from the faucet, you can access an RV water hookup or you can fill the on-board water tank. The rear seat folds and connects to a mattress in the hatch to make one of two beds. The Westfalia pop-top adds another sleeping quarter for the kids or guests. There is also plenty of cabinet space, privacy curtains, and two tables to play cards and eat inside.
Russell has a 4 speed manual transmission. Know that he is not a race car. He is meant to get to your destination gingerly. You'll need to downshift into 3rd when pulling some hills along the journey, but that's part of the Westy experience! *Note: if you have little to no experience driving a manual transmission, please do not book.
So what are you waiting for? It's time for you to stand out in the crowd of boring glampervans and yuppy trailers. Russell is waiting to give you that experience!

Unfortunately Russell the rental van broke down, but Casey was very helpful in cancelling our reservation and arranging for a refund.

For the first 5 days of our 8-day rental we had a good trip to central Oregon, enjoyed staying in the VW van, and had easy and clear communication with the van's owner. Unfortunately on Day 6 everything went to hell. The van had a mechanical breakdown, and Outdoorsy provided ZERO help. Our family of four were stranded in the middle of nowhere, it was impossible to get the help we needed from Outdoorsy, and it was only our own perseverance and help from local people that got us home safely. This was a very hard and bad experience. While the trip had beautiful moments, we all wound up exhausted and completely fed up with Outdoorsy. Communication with the van's owner remained easy and friendly the entire time, he was very patient and understanding, which really helped.

Casey was super nice, helpful, and made pick-up and drop-off easy. We had a great time on our 4 night camping trip in "Russell." So fun to drive and camp in this old classic!

Great experience with Casey and taking Russell out for a weekend adventure with my two kids. I’ve d oven an older Westy before so I knew what I was getting and we had a blast.

My husband and I had a great trip in Russell. We drove to Orcas Island from Seattle, and spent 3 nights on the island. It was pretty great to sit on the comfy seats in back and eat dinner while we waited in the ferry line. Russell ran really well the entire trip, and had no issues that Casey didn't already communicate to us (it's an old vehicle, so some quirks are expected). In the mornings we used the stove to make coffee and breakfast. We hooked up to electricity with no problem (it was a short trip, so we didn't use the water hookup).
