Good Times Never Seemed So Good
Sweet Caroline is the 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon Camper van of Neil Diamond’s dreams. The “Westy” was already the world’s most exquisitely designed camper van, but with all the upgrades this owner has done (including a Bluetooth stereo), now the van is even better than the original! Sweet Caroline has had a full restoration in and out, but retains her Retro charm. Sweet Caroline’s owner likes nothing more than restoring VWs, so you can rest assured this rig is dialed in.
Sweet Caroline is a full camper with a sink, stove and fridge and is fully equipped for an adventure with everything you could possibly need. Mechanically she’s been upgraded for performance and reliability, with a Subaru engine that purrs like a kitten. The best part? She’s got an automatic transmission so you don’t have to brush off your manual driving skills.
The back bench seat converts to a bed for two. Yes, technically speaking, the pop-top converts to a second bed, but this van really is best with just two campers. If you have more than two, please add the tent package for additional passengers (see add-ons). You’ll want the extra space to be really comfortable. Trust us!
Vanagon Campers are compact, nimble, and drive more like a car than an RV. Sweet Caroline is packed and ready to go on your next road trip; everything you need is included.
For an analog adventure, rent Sweet Caroline. Your stress will melt away.

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.
