Overview

Drive and camp in a vintage camper van from 1967 (52 years-old) that both turns heads and is functional. It features a twin bed, a propane stovetop, icebox, sink, closet, cafe table, camp gear and a poptop that allows you to stand up and get fresh air in the camper! It is stocked with cooking gear, dining gear, linens, pillows, blankets, towels, cleaning supplies, a small freestanding canopy, and a portable propane camp stove. You provide your own personal effects, personal gear, and food. The CampWagon is also ideal for use by photographers and as a fun backdrop for special events. It is an automatic, V8 318, 3-speed, 727 transmission and has drum brakes and manual steering. 3rd gear will take you to a maximum cruising speed of 60 mph on flat ground, so the van is NOT suited for highway driving. It is also not suitable for passengers other than the driver and passenger. The rear seats (1967) do not have safety belts. The front passenger compartment has room for two adults, and provides lap belts for safety and an AM radio for fun. There are no safety belts on the rear bench seats. The van can connect to standard campsite electrical hookups using a provided extension cord, powering interior lights and functional outlets. There is no water hookup, but a small reservoir container may be filled to supply the camp sink. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY: This van is best suited for destination camping and not long road trips as it moves more slowly and consumes more fuel than modern vehicles. The vintage technology requires caution, alertness and consideration while driving. We prefer it be used in Northwest Indiana and Northeast Illinois ONLY. We rent it for or use in the area of the Indiana Dunes and we can deliver it there for your enjoyment, if you like. Or, we live just a short, colorful drive away from the dunes if you want to pilot it yourselves. This van is not suited for music festivals, Burning Man or other big concert or event settings. It is not for children passengers. Enjoy the spaciousness and comfort that Detroit and Elkhart, Ind. cooperated to build. Very few of these campers survive and this is one of the best examples in the U.S. and Europe. The camper conversion was done by the Travel Equipment Corp. in Elkhart, Ind. The poptop canvas was made in Goshen, Ind. The van was manufactured by Dodge in Detroit. The van sat unused for 35 years in a Wisconsin garage. We purchased it in the spring of 2016. After a year-and-a-half of restoration that included a new floor, new ceiling, new curtains, new cushions, insulation, upgraded mechanicals, new zippers in the canvas, new tires and much more TLC, this rare CampWagon is yours to experience for once-in-a-lifetime fun. Please message us if you would like to come test drive it and see if you would like to drive and camp in this vintage CampWagon for your next adventure! We are available by arrangement for you to come test drive the CampWagon and see if it is the right fit for your trip. Please note that we have selected Outdoorsy's Moderate cancellation policy, which means there is a reduced fee for cancelling. Please read the policies before committing.

What a great trip in time back to the Summer of Love! We wanted a very unique experience for our Fall camping trip, and this beautiful van hit every note perfectly. Andy and Beth have taken a rare vehicle and lovingly restored it. It drives like a charm - we got off the Interstate and took US...
