About this RV

Baloo is a classic and cosy camper with poptop tent for up to 3 people. (poptop tent is 42" x 78" and single below is 22" x 78")

The passenger seat swivels around creating a cozy lounge area. With the poptop raised it is easy to stand and prepare meals on the 2-burner cooktop and sink combination. There is a refrigerator with ample shelving space for dry goods.

Curtains allow privacy in any setting.

It is small enough to drive like a car, yet fun enough to enhance any vacation.

For AC operation while parked the engine has to be running.

2-burner cooktop/sink with 20 gallons of fresh running water and a 20 lb propane tank. Pots, pans, plates, cups, utensils, silverware,

12V coffee maker,

3 camping chairs.

There is a Dometic Porta-potty for emergency use. (You use it - you clean it)

Other things to note

Standard pick-up time is 17:00 and different times may be possible upon request. Please set aside about an hour for pick-up to go over operation and equipment.

Sean is a great host. Communication was always very timely and the walk through was very thorough before I headed out. There was a kink in the water line that he spotted- this did impact running water but Sean supplied plenty of water for the weekend. Sean also supplied me with a stool to give me better leverage in extending the pop up. The cook top, sink, working space and storage are really g…

We thoroughly enjoyed renting this camper. It was perfect for the two of us. Having owned air cooled vw buses, i was a little hesitant about traveling so far, but she ran like a champ. The ac runs very cold and that was a life saver when traveling between camping locations or when wHen we needed a break from the heat. We brought battery fans for sleeping and the inverter allowed us to keep a charged battery. The fridge did great on keeping our food cold.

Sean was great; quick to respond to questions. Fun van, fun experience. Definitely recommend Baloo!

Sean was an excellent host.

His communication was always excellent, before and during the trip.

He was very understanding, trusting and had some great advice.

The Campervan itself is an excellent example of a westfalia, with some very useful modifications. Very clean, and very well thought out (storage space and cooking equipment). It even has a small coffee machine tucked away.

Can’t recommend …

We had a great weekend in Baloo! This was a quick weekend trip for us, and we used the van to make it convenient for us to attend our son's track meet but also to have something fun to do for Valentine's day weekend. Sean was great, and communicated everything needed to us ahead of time. The van was stocked and comfortable and all expectations were met. We would definitely rent this same vehicle a second time, even for a longer trip because it was very comfortable and the perfect size for us. Thanks, Sean!
