Bill and Diane are nice and super helpful. They seem to keep up their fleet very well. The only possible problem was missing or damaged screen mesh in the pop up. Thankfully my destination had no issues w bugs or critters so it wasn’t a problem.

My husband and I felt like kids again driving around in the "Cardiff" VW that we rented for a weekend. I was nervous about driving a manual but The VW Van drove like a dream and really easy to drive. I can't say enough about how beautifully maintained and immaculately clean the van was. Bill with Vintage Surfari gave us excellent instructions before we left and covered every thing we would need to know on our trip. The experience was super easy, as they were super organized, professional and helpful. Great all around experience, a 10 out of 10! We will be renting again!

Rented a Bay model for a 3-day weekend for my boyfriend's birthday because he's so into these campers and would like to own one someday. I wasn't a fan of his dream, but now I'm totally converted. Not only because camping on the SoCal coast was incredible in June, but mostly because Bill (and staff) were the best. From the minute I called, he was very patient, accommodating and informed. Their fleet of campers were very well maintained, pristine clean and contained everything you need for overnight stays. He was always available when I had questions, took the time to explain everything to our satisfaction, and the pick up and drop off was seamless. Not only would I rent one again from Bill and Vintage Surfari Wagons, I want to camp out in any of his wagons for longer - this coming from a non-camper! It was a great experience and so glad I found them.

Truly the best vans, most epic vibes and nicest people. Bill and his wife and team are really awesome to work with, we will certainly be back for more adventures!

Cardiff felt like a home to us. By the time our trip came to an end we were sad to drop the bus off. Bill and Dianne were extremely kind, real, and enjoyable to work with. 100% recommend doing this.
