Where to in Wendel?

Wendel the Westy is the perfect little van! He is in amazing condition. The interior is all original and has been deep cleaned on the regular (no weird smells). Wendel is a 1987 Vanagon Camper, and he’s outfitted with all the essentials for the perfect camping adventure.

Wendel has two full-size sleeping areas, a sink, a two-burner stove top, and a brand new electric fridge. He has an upgraded speaker system with Bluetooth stereo, big all weather tires, interior lighting throughout so you can always find what you need, drapery for all the windows including the front, a custom built-in wine rack, premium bedding to sleep four, and lots of storage for your belongings. Even better? This Westy is an automatic so you don’t have to worry about grinding the gears.

Note: Wendel does not have A/C, which is typically not a problem in the Pacific Northwest.

The Vanagon has been referred to as “the most popular vehicular fashion statement on this Earth.” This is no more true than with Wendel. An interior designer, Wendel’s owner, Larissa, knows her way around fashion statements. Larissa is also a super host on AirBnB. Great attention has been paid to every little feature and convenience. This van will make you look very, very good.

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

GoCamp's 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).

Mileage

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

    You can cancel the vehicle for a full refund, less a 5% service fee, up to 30 days prior to the rental. If you cancel with less than 30 days prior to the rental, you will receive a refund for 50% of the rental fee.

    Cancellations must be made in writing. We are unable to offer refunds for shortened trips if for some reason (e.g. weather, change in schedule) you return the vehicle early. GoCamp reserves the right to cancel a reservation at our discretion if we feel that the rental would not be safe (e.g. a renter shows up intoxicated, a hurricane is expected along the coast and you are determined to go surfing, etc.). If GoCamp cancels the rental you will receive a full refund.
