Featured San Diego Camper Van Rental

Van Luca is a thoughtfully designed Mercedes-Benz Sprinter waiting to sweep you off your feet. And speaking of feet, Van Luca boasts an interior space that's roomy enough for renters over 6ft tall! Van Luca sports a Flarespace kit (or bump-outs) around the bed so there's extra sleeping space for taller passengers. Someone 6’3” can stand straight up in the van with shoes on, and also lay across the bed fully extended without touching their head or feet to the edges!

Van Luca’s layout and design will make the day-to-day a breeze. From making that morning cup o’ joe to planning your outdoor excursion, this van offers it all. With storage for your personal items in the overhead bins and cabinets, you’ll have plenty of room inside the van to sprawl out and stretch your legs after a long day. Outdoor gear and bigger items can be stowed away in the “garage” under the bed. And the hanging plants give that zen touch that will let you kick back, relax, and reflect on the wonders of the day’s journey.

Van Luca comes with a 6×9 weather-resistant rug, two rocking chairs, and an umbrella with a cocktail table and stand. It's all included in the rental to make your getaway feel extra special!

Check out this dream machine and book a date for making some tall tales of your own!

The best adventure!

“Van Luca was the ultimate adventure van for a road trip up the California coast with my two dogs. I loved that the van is pet friendly and there was plenty of space for all of us! There was clearly a lot of thought put into the details- from a bed that is more comfortable than mine at home, to the kitchen set up with everything you need for a gourRead more about review stating The best adventure :)met road meal, and the overall high quality of everything in the van. The set up for the outside was wonderful too, bringing a new meaning to “home is where you park it.” Driving the van was also very smooth, even through LA traffic! Steve explained everything I needed clearly in the manual and the experience was seamless. I can’t wait to rent it out again for my next road trip!”

5 Road Trip Destinations from San Diego

Rent a camper van in San Diego. Then hit the road!

“The journey is the destination.” Cliché, perhaps. But pretty much always true, especially when you journey by camper van! Your camper van rental is a literal home on wheels. So whether you travel 50 or 500 miles outside of the San Diego city limits, find an established campsite or go boondocking, you’ll have the best road trip, ever!

Ojai Valley 

Sounds like “Oh hi!” and it feels like it, too. This earth-conscious community is about a 3-hour drive from San Diego, about 45 minutes east of Santa Barbara. Sunny Ojai is rich in outdoor activities. Finding a beautiful place to park your camper van won’t be a challenge. You can camp in public campgrounds, or find an exquisite slice of paradise by staying at a private Hipcamp property.

Idyllwild

Always wanted to visit Yosemite but scared off by the crowds? Consider taking your camper van rental from San Diego to Idyllwild for similar scenery, and far fewer tourists! This charming little town is tucked in the San Jacinto Mountains only two hours away from San Diego. You’ll always be in a 5-star stay when you camp in a GoCamp camper van, so you’ll have a luxurious home to return to after hiking the trails in Mount San Jacinto State Park.

Palm Springs

Ahh, yes. Palm Springs. The name alone evokes feelings of sunshine on the skin, arm out the window, your sunglasses gaze pointed up to the tops of palm trees. This iconic Southern California town has plenty to offer on its own, or meander through in camper van comfort en route to Joshua Tree.

Solvang

Be prepared to be charmed. You’re going to want to park it for a bit and stroll through this historic Danish village in the Santa Ynez Valley. Just north of Los Angeles, Solvang is about a 4-hour drive from San Diego. Pop into any number of local bakeries and pick up an authentic Danish pastry (or several) to nosh on in your GoCamp camper van.

Mammoth Lakes

The Sierra Nevadas are a year-round destination. Mammoth Lakes is a 6 1/2 hour drive from San Diego, and you’ll be driving with your jaw on the floor for most of it. Mammoth-sized mountains, lakes, valleys, and opportunities for adventure are yours for the sampling. And if the overwhelm gets to ya, just pull over, climb on top of your camper van maybe, and binge-watch the nature channel.
