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, Goldie 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 bus has been recently refurbished with vintage aesthetics always in mind but with some modern and essential upgrades: dimmable LED lighting, USB outlets, and modern seat belts. 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. 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.
Freshly washed 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.
Please remember that this is a 40 year old vehicle and it must be treated as such. This bus is equipped with a manual or "stick" transmission. Please be prepared to demonstrate proficiency at the time of pick up. Please, no off-road travel or excessive speed. Care must be take not to overheat the original air-cooled engine.
Use proper gear selection please. No off-road travel. No excessive speeds or coasting in neutral down hills. 91 octane gas only. Please stay off the roof. These are 40 year old vehicles and must be driven with care. Please, check the oil at every fuel-up.
