1991 VW Vanagon Camper "Marsha" (Manual Transmission)

As a MultiVan, "Marsha" is a bit like a village carrier. More room than the full campers and bit easier to deal with (the kitchen cabinets in the full cabinet are great, but - honestly - most people don't even use those features), Marsha is classic example of a mostly "stock" Vanagon. The back seat folds down to a full size bed and there is another full size bed un the pop up. The bunk bed top lifts effortlessly thanks to added Jack Bombay pop-top shocks. We suggest leaving one or both of rear bucket seats behind to make room for coolers and other gear.

She drives great and is ready to transport 5 comfortably on a camping adventure. She has a Yakima rack that holds a 150w solar panel that charges an auxiliary battery under the drivers seat, allowing you to keep the radio and interior light running through the night (or anything that can plug into USB ports or a 12V cigarette lighter plug.... chargers, lights, fans, etc).

***Must be able to drive a manual transmission to rent this vehicle!

Vanagons are not meant for driving long days on the interstate at high speeds. It's not about the destination, it's the journey... They live by the 60 & 2 theory. 60 mph with 2 windows down. It's best to keep your daily mileage under 200 miles, although the occasional day of 300+ miles is okay as long as you take a few rests for you and the van.

We had a very good experience on this trip. Jim was very helpful in our planning, pick-up, and return. "Marsha" was well suited for us. We wanted to experience sleeping and camping in a campervan--we are tent campers. This worked very well. Others had the campstove, etc. Mostly, we needed a good roof over our head. The two of us used the upper and lower beds for more room. During the day, grandkids joined us for some board games on the fold-down table--they loved sitting in the campervan and enjoyed a small visit to the upper bed. As we got ready to leave camp, it was very easy--folded the pop-top in carefully, closed the doors, and drove home. It could not have been easier. And Outdoorsy was a good interface for us.

Marsha is a wonderful time capsule into the past. She is the perfect home for a road trip in the nature and all the moments there were very special.
Jim gave us all the necessary instruction and he was very helpful with all kind of questions. We highly recommend reserving Marsha for a trip!

We LOVED camping out in Marsha! It only made us more eager to get our own van as soon as we can.

What an amazing charm filled weekend we spent with “Marsha” We were travelling from Canada and needed an affordable, small, yet safe place to sleep. Not only did Marsha keep us warm and dry on a rainy weekend but we had music, party lights and a comfortable sleep. Many thanks to Jim for the hospitality. He made the rental process easy and stress free. Highly recommended!
