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, 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.
Vanagon Campers are compact, nimble, and drive more like a car than an RV. The back bench seat converts to a bed, and the pop top expands to reveal a second bed so that, all in all, this van seats and sleeps four. Sweet Caroline is packed and ready to go on your next road trip; everything you need is included. Check out the optional add-ons for extra fun.
For an analog adventure, rent Sweet Caroline. Your stress will melt away.

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.
