Meander in Metolius
Metolius is a trusty road tripper and weekend warrior. She is a 2002 Eurovan Weekender, named after one of Oregon’s most pristine fly fishing rivers. She’ll take you to the river, the mountains, the beaches and all of the Northwest’s iconic National Parks. Just point her toward the fun; she’s packed and ready for you.
This van is a “Weekender” model. The Eurovan Weekender seats three in the back seat, and also includes a rear facing jump seat behind the driver for a total of six passengers. Kids absolutely love the rear facing seat; it’s like being on a train. There is sleeping space for four inside the van, with two in the pop top and two in the bottom bunk. Add a tent and sleeping bags to your camper van rental for extra sleeping space.
The Weekender does not include the built-in kitchenette, instead the backseat and lower bed are extra large, a great trade off. In fact, the bottom bed inside Weekenders is a full 15 inches (!) larger than the bed in the “Camper” version of the Eurovan. This type of van is a great option for any family that needs to seat up to six passengers, the couple that would like some extra sleeping space, or the party that needs to carry extra gear in the main cabin.
For cooking we send you off with a cooler for your perishables, a propane stove, a collapsible camp table, and all the pots, pans, plates, bowls etc. you’ll need. Do your cooking around the campfire or with the portable stove that is included. You get the best of both worlds: camp cooking like you are generally used to, with sleeping in luxury inside the van. A table inside the van swings up for dining or playing cards.

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.

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.
