Amazing! This was the best decision I could have made. The owner Bill is a great guy and so helpful. I was concerned about a route I was taking and called Bill first thing in the morning. He was so reassuring and even offered advice to a better route that lead us to a beautiful Dutch city. This is just one example of their great service. I would highly recommend renting one of these amazing busses. They are such a head turner and so fun to drive. I assure you it will be a journey you won’t forget. I will absolutely be renting from them again!

We just finished a trip from LA to San Francisco in 5 nights with our 2 children (aged 8 & 11). It was an amazing trip and totally lived up to all our dreams. Our lives are so hectic now so to slow down, physically and metaphorically, in a 1979 Bay Window is such a valuable and unforgettable thing in our lives now. Instead of screen time, there was volleyball at Fernwood and on the beach. Ins…

We had so much fun in our VW Bus!! We cannot recommend this trip highly enough. We drove it to Joshua Tree, Disneyland, San Diego... everywhere! It's a great size that still can be driven & parked like normal size vehicle, but designed so well inside to be a great camper too. Everyone we worked with or met with at Vintage Surfari was really great too - very informative and nice. We already want to go back and do this again!
