About this RV

Murphy is a 1987 Vanagon Camper that features a clean, customized interior with upgraded LED lighting, hardwood floors, a fully insulated interior, and much more. Murphy boasts brand new speakers for great sound and a Bluetooth enabled stereo lets you plug in your iPhone/Android device for the perfect road trip soundtrack. Additional upgrades include an auxiliary battery that powers the lighting and your electric devices so that you can go for days at a time without worry of draining the starting battery.

Murphy is great for cruising around the Central Coast and taking in all of the natural beauty it has to offer. With a classic color and stylings, Murphy is sure to turn heads while you're on the road!

This is the “Camper” version of the Vanagon; it sleeps four people in two full sized beds (two up in the Pop Top, two below). This is a classic, super cool Vanagon with a manual transmission, so drivers should be comfortable with a stick shift.

Hop In and Go

Murphy is fully road trip ready. Whether you're new to California's Central Coast or looking to explore your own backyard, all you really need to do is stop for groceries before hitting the road. All cookware and tableware is included, as is bedding and a wide array of camping gear.

We had a great time using Murph's VW Vanagon for a weekend getaway to Big Sur. The perfect distance from its home base in SLO, & it was super helpful to have a vehicle so ready for setting up camp & allowing us to make this trip despite the weather system that hit the coast early that Sunday morning.

Sean was a terrific, personable, communicative, & enthusiastic host. He was very accommodating o…

We had the best time using the Vanagon this past weekend. Could not have been a better experience. Communication was great and the van was amazing. It was clean and full of everything we could need for camping. Such a fun way to explore some of California’s beautiful coastline. We will definitely be renting again!!

The owner's are SO nice and communicated really well before my trip and also explained how to use the van super well. The van drove really nice and the bed was super comfy. Loved that it included all the things to cook like a Jet Boil, pots and pans, and a cooler. The first thing I did when I got the van was drive it over to an air bnb that a bunch of my friends were staying in and they were all instantly super jealous and regretted booking the place they were staying haha. Highly recommend!!!

I wouldn't recommend it for more than 2 small kids sleeping up top and a …

Had a great time driving Murph around the PCH. The van had everything we needed to be comfortable and we were made to feel right at home. The transmission was easy to handle and the extra goodies of portable power were clutch for camping. Miss Murph already!!

Fig Newton's First Law: Cookies are amazing. Somehow, the scientists at Brown Butter have made them amazinger. Sure to delight cookie monsters of all types, this is a must visit for any coastal trip.

Awesome fish tacos, salads and sandwiches with fresh fish smoked to perfection. Casual beachside eating and, if you can't find a seat, just take them to go and park along highway one!
