Say hello to the Pineapple Express, our classic VW Westfalia. She’s a beautiful ‘84 Westy that we’ve upgraded with a few luxuries, and as always — stocked full of top notch camping gear.

Full featured, the van includes a "pop top", 2 beds to sleep 4 adults comfortably, propane stove, sink, central heat, a closet with plenty of storage, and those killer bucket seats that swivel! Like the rest of the Westy's we all love, the Pineapple is fully equipped to meet all your camping and adventure needs. We've updated the stereo, added a roof rack + auxiliary ladder, an ARB awning, and a few more modern features to make your camping experience even more comfortable. Oh, and she's also working with an Automatic Transmission, so there's no need to learn how to operate a stick shift.

If you’re packing some extra gear, we recommend adding a Thule storage box to your rental. It’s a great way to take a few extras on the trip and keep the interior of the van wide open. The box sits on top of the roof rack and you can easily access it from the side ladder.

Pineapple Express is perfect for a long distance family trip or just a quick getaway for a couple. We hope you will enjoy her for your next adventure as much as we do! Pro tip: If you pass another VW, be sure to wave. Peace signs, shakas, and the always classic rock on formations work best ( | | ), but any old gesture will do. It’s a tradition amongst VW van drivers like you :)

The Pineapple Express is great for cruising around the Central Coast and taking in all of the natural beauty this area has to offer. The van is located in Morro Bay, California. It’s a perfect jump off point to places like Big Sur, Pinnacles National Park and so much more. We’re minutes away from Morro Bay State Park, Montana De Oro State Park, and all of the other incredible spots around SLO, Monterey & Santa Barbara counties.

The van was in good working order. Pickup and drop-off were a breeze. And it was stocked with everything we needed to cook some simple meals. We plan to do it again!

Scam

Michael ’s answer

Hi Jonah. As you know, we're not a scam. You returned our van with severe damages. The ladder is broken, the side of the van is now dented and bent, and there's paint scraped off and on the van from whatever it struck. So, we placed a hold on your security deposit and filed an insurance claim. Not only have you damaged our van, you are now leaving false and defamatory reviews of our business online — beyond just here on Outdoorsy. We don't know why you're being so malicious towards us, but we can tell you it's very hurtful and, beyond that, just plain sad.

What a beautiful experience! Van Camp was incredibly helpful and quick to respond when we had a question. The van was beautiful and we had the best time experiencing van life. Hoping to rent again in the near future!

Thanks so much for renting Amanda! We hope to host you again soon!

This was the best trip of our lives! We loved everything about The Pineapple Express and how it truly had everything we needed for our eight day camping experience. We hope to do it again someday and are so grateful this little campervan exists in the world!

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
A.
To accommodate any changes in your schedule, we allow self-service pick up and drop off from 5:00am - 10:00pm on the day of your reservation. This makes it easy for you to grab your van and return it when it’s the most convenient. Your van will be ready with a full tank of gas, our premium camping gear, any add ons you selected for your rental, and maybe even a “Slocal” treat from one of our favorite local bakeries :)

Q.What comes with a rental?
A.
In addition to your van, each rental includes all the essential cooking, sleeping and camping gear. See the full gear list at govancamp.co/included Everything we include is premium camping gear that we’ve come to know and love when we take our own trips. There’s so much great camping gear these days so we spent some money on the good stuff! Most rental companies charge extra for the gear we include. That’s something to consider when shopping around :)

Q.How many people fit?
A.
Our VW Vanagon, Murphy, has five seatbelts and can sleep up to four people (two down below and two in the “pop top”). Most of our renters are couples, but two adults and two children sleep comfortably in one van. Four adults is a little snug, but we do it all the time. You can also rent or bring an extra tent, too.

Q.Where can I go?
A.
Anywhere in the great state of California, with a couple exceptions. We do ask that you stick to the pavement and maintained dirt roads — your insurance won’t cover you elsewhere, and rough roads are very hard on these vehicles. Burning man festival is off limits. Death Valley is also off limits.
