What better way to embark on the Great American Road Trip than behind the wheel of an icon: the Volkswagen Westfalia camper bus? With sleeping room for 4, sink, stove, ice box and plenty of other surprises, The Original is all you need to explore the American West the way it should be: untethered and unplugged. Few vehicles inspire a similar feeling as these old buses. There's just something unique about watching the world go by at 55mph (a lot slower if your nose is pointed uphill) with the sound an air-cooled 4-cylinder engine putting in the rear. Reintroduce yourself to the pleasure of driving and see the beauty of Yellowstone, the Bighorn Mountains, the Grand Tetons, Devils Tower and the rest of your Wyoming public lands - all accessible from the centrally located Casper home base.
This particular bus has crisscrossed the USA several times and it's always been a faithful vehicle and home. It has been recently refurbished with vintage aesthetics always in mind but with some modern and essential upgrades: four USB charging ports, two 12v outlets, new sound system with Bluetooth connection, warm and dimmable LED lighting, modern seat belts and headlights. The sink is supplied by a 7 gallon fresh water tank and the 2-burner stove has 2 gallons of propane at its disposal - enough to satisfy all your cooking needs. A second deep-cycle battery allows for extended stays in the outback. Unlike full size RV's and trailers, the VW Campmobile allows you to boondock almost anywhere incognito and parking is a breeze, however if you prefer a developed camping experience, the bus has external water and power hookups to make life more convenient.
Sheet sets for the beds are included in the rental and sleeping bags are available for extra charge as well as other assorted camping and hiking equipment. Also included are enough dishes and utensils for 4 and enough cookware to do some light meal preparation. Coffee making supplies are also included, of course.
This bus is equipped with a manual or "stick" transmission. Please be prepared to demonstrate proficiency at the time of pick up.
Please refer to the posted pictures for a feeling of what this old bus has to offer. We are confident that you'll have an unforgettable trip.
