We're excited to share the newest addition to our Besty Westy fleet, the 1986 Westfalia Hightop! This Vanagon has been lovingly restored and upgraded. The hightop provides standing headroom and an extra bed just like the normal Westfalia - plus tons of storage without having to set up anything! Great for stealth camping or for those rainy or colder nights. A 100ah lithium house battery and solar panel keep everything charged and running. A new Subaru engine, transmission, brakes, tires, wheels, and basically everything else you can think of has been replaced. This van is ready for exploring the Shenandoah Valley or the Appalachian Mountains! This is the only Hightop van available for rent in North America right now. Find out why we love it so much!What's includedFull cook kit is included with the van rental. Just add your food and Beer and go! We provide two camping chairs, an outdoor mat, and a 12volt fridge cooler that will run off the 100ah lithium house battery for days!An 8’x8’ ARB awning provides protection from the sun and the rain when camping.The Van has several USB A and C ports to keep all your devices charged.Head to for more information on the vans and the destinations around the Maryland area.
RecommendationsFrederick MD is situated on the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains just north of Harpers Ferry and about an hour north of Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park. To the north lies Gettysburg and Michaux State Forest in PA, which is about an hour's drive away. Frederick is a fantastic jumping-off point with its own unique charm and vibrant dining and brewery scene. Other things to noteThis van has a manual transmission so you must be proficient at operating a manual to rent this van!But really, we will be going on a drive with you to make sure you and the transmission get along.

We had a wonderful experience renting Besty Westy's 1986 Westfalia. Lee and Rachel were on top of communication and quick to show us the ropes of their amazing camper van. Lee was super responsive with a door issue and got us back on the road quickly. The van was stocked with everything we needed for a weekend of camping. They really have thought of everything. The van handled great and was fun to drive. It was the center of attention at the Penn State tailgate at lot 34. Highly recommend and will definitely rent from Besty Westy again!

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
Because our office is based out of our home in Frederick, one of the two of us is generally able to meet you to pick up the van and drop it off. We can be pretty flexible given prior notice and accommodate most situations and requests!
