Coco is a 1985 Volkswagon Vanagon Westfalia Wolsfburg Edition Weekender. Got all that? :)
Coco is a water cooled Vanagon, so you'll have a bit more reliability and power than the earlier buses, and a little bit more space and function. There are two beds, both big enough for two adults, a cd player, storage for your luggage, and a fold out table for eating.
For renters coming from out of town, a cooler, camp espresso maker, silverware, dishes, and propane stove are available if needed. Additionally, bedding can be made available as well.
She has an automatic transmission, which many people prefer to deal with when they're renting a camper.
Coco has sleeping space for 4 adults, and seatbelts for 6. She has two separate beds, one in the lower area and one in the poptop. As a weekender, Coco has a very edited interior with some storage in the rear and a fold out dining table, but no built in stove or sink. We've found this to be a good tradeoff for space, because most people would rather have a bigger bed and do their dishes and cooking outside in the campsite, keeping their van free of cooking odors and dirty dishes.
When considering this van for your rental, there are some ground rules we've found helpful in the past.
1. No Smoking
2. NO BURNING MAN
3. Pets can be considered but we neet to discuss it first. Big wild 1 year old hunting Lab? Probably not a great option. 12 year old pug? Sure. Not that we don't love Labs, so check just in case, but you get what we mean.
4. Easy trips are far better in this type of vehicle; find locations that interest you within a couple hours. This is a great vehicle for easy weekends on the PCH, basking in beautiful warm sunsets with a breeze in your hair. Not a great vehicle for gnarly road missions up the grapevine and up the 5 on 1000 miles drives. Remember, renters are liable for what happens during the rental. This rule is for you as much as it is for Coco!
5. 120 Miles per day are included in each rental, but mileage exceeding this amount is charged at $1.00/day. The point is not to nickel and dime customers, but to encourage easy, mellow trips rather than hardcore long drives. Coco is constantly maintained, but she's still old. Go easy!
