Make Memories in Marin Mountaineer

Go see all that California has to offer in this 1995 Eurovan Camper. The Golden Gate Bridge, Big Sur, Yosemite, wine country … hit the highway and cross some of those iconic California destinations off your list. Marin Mountaineer’s owner, Jim, loves nothing more than playing tour guide, so be sure to ask him for suggestions on what to do and where to go. He’ll help you create an itinerary you’ll remember for ages.

And the Marin Mountaineer is just the van to make those memories in. He seats and sleeps four with two in the pop top and two in the bottom bunk. When it isn’t a bed, the bottom bunk is a bench seat that you can sit on with the doors open watching the world outside go by. Sunsets, the surf coming in … whatever the view, this home on wheels will provide a comfy vantage point. Close those sliding doors when you want to use the propane powered heater. 😉

The kitchen comes complete with everything you need to cook up a feast; there’s a sink, small fridge and two-burner propane stove. All the pots, pans, silverware, dish ware, etc. that you could possibly need are also included. It’s all there for you.

Marin Mountaineer is a 5 speed VW manual transmission professionally paired to a TDI 4 cylinder Diesel engine. Drivers should be comfortable with a stick shift and familiar with the power nuances of manual shift, low torque turbo diesel engines. Sound like you? 🚐 ✌🏼 ☀️

Marin Mountaineer averages 30+ MPG and has approximately 20 k miles on the new diesel conversion. He’s ready and waiting for you!

Hop in and Go

All vans are considered “road trip ready.” Whether you are flying in from out of town 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. You’ll be sent a detailed list of all the items included in the van before your trip so you can plan accordingly. Select any of the optional add-ons listed below when completing your reservation.

Optional Add-ons

  • 2+ Drivers
    Your reservation already includes costs to verify up to two drivers. Will you have more than two drivers? Add additional driver verifications to your reservation.
  • Add a half day to your rental
    Rental days are based on a 24-hour period. If you pick up at 10 am you are generally expected to return at 10 am. Want to pick up your van in the morning, but drop it off in the evening? Add a half day to your rental.
  • Pet fee
    This vehicle is pet friendly. Bring Rover!
  • Bike rack
    Bike rack holds up to 4 bikes. (Local renters are welcome to see if their own bike racks attach. Vans typically accommodate two by two hitches.)
  • Overflow tent
    Nice if someone is known to snore, when you are bringing extra passengers, or if the kids want to stretch their wings.
  • Rear hitch luggage rack
    Nice if you have lots of stuff.
  • Top roof rack
    Good if you want to bring along kayaks, canoes, etc.

Book Your Trip

Pick Up and Drop Off

Rentals are Calculated on a 24-hour Basis: The rental period is generally considered to be 24 hours. If you pick up the van at 10 am, you’ll be expected to return it around 10 am. Most van owners can accommodate requests for a few extra hours at $20/hour. Alternatively, if you want to pick up in the morning and drop off in the evening, simply select the optional half day add-on when completing your reservation.

Pick Up and Drop Off Time: There is no set pick up and drop off time. You’ll make arrangements suited to your needs and schedule with the van’s owner. You can indicate your preferred pick up and drop off time when completing your reservation; final arrangements will be confirmed with the van’s owner.



Insurance coverage includes $1 million in liability to the renter, $1 million in liability to the van owner, and comp and collision coverage up to $125,000. Coverage costs $32.50/day and is required as part of the rental.

Roadside Assistance

We make 24-hour roadside assistance available for $15 a day. Coverage includes unlimited: towing, flat tire assistance, emergency fluids delivery, battery boost, and a mobile mechanic. Many van owners require 24-hour roadside assistance as part of the rental. Where coverage is mandatory, you must either purchase our policy, or show proof of comparable coverage (such as AAA PLUS or PREMIER).


125 miles per day is included in every rental. Additional miles are charged at 35 cents per mile. For example, on a four-night rental, you will have 500 free miles. If you traveled 600 miles, you would pay an additional $35 at the end of your trip.

Security Deposit

You’ll pay a security deposit of $1,000 two days before your rental starts. The security deposit is returned, less any additional fees, usually no more than 7 days after you return.

  • Cancellation Policy

    Updated as of March 2020. In light of concerns related to traveling during the novel coronavirus outbreak, we are waiving all cancellation and change fees. Whether you can cancel or change your camper van trip if you need to is something you can take off your worry list. We hope this situation ends soon, and we also hope you are able to get a break from it all in a camper van.

    We will revert to our standard cancellation policy at a later time.
