Meet Marvelous Maupin
Maupinis a town in Eastern Oregon located on the beautiful Deschutes River. As a camper van, Maupin is a 1989 Vanagon Camper that features a clean, comfortable interior with upgraded LED lighting throughout. Maupin has a manual transmission so please be sure you are comfortable driving stick.
Maupin boasts brand new speakers for great sound and a Bluetooth enabled digital media receiver lets you plug in your iPhone/Android device to play tunes. The receiver also allows for hands free calling through the stereo with a microphone placed near the rear view mirror.
Additional upgrades include an auxiliary battery that powers the fridge and other electric devices so that you can go for days at a time without worry about draining the starting battery. New screens for the sliding windows have also recently been installed. Maupin’s owner is a fixture in the local Volkswagen van community, and one of the first people to join the GoCamp fleet. In a previous life he worked in the airline industry. Customer service is his middle name.
Maupin is great for cruising around the Pacific Northwest and taking in all of the natural beauty that can only be accessed in a home on wheels with such a small footprint. Maupin would be perfect for your trip; he’s a classic Westy and, with his beautiful color, sure to turn heads while you are on the road. This is the kind of vehicle that makes you realize that all the tiny, insignificant worries of your stressful life are nothing more than cosmic dust. That’s pretty impressive for a 25+ year old van.
This van owner has limited check-out times. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, anytime will work! Any other day of the week, you’ll pick up the van after 5:30 p.m.

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.
