About this RV
Her name is Arabelle, and she’s special, in her own way of course!
This automatic 1987 VW Westfalia Vanagon with a 2.5L Subaru heart transplant is the perfect retro ride for whatever adventure you may be looking for! Hit Wasaga beach for some swimming, have a styled photography shoot or set up camp just about anywhere. Arabelle will get you there in style! This camper van is equipped with two full beds, two stovetops, a sink, a small pull-out table, solar power, and plenty of storage space for your gear! And, the best yet- she is a beauty!
We want to help you make your van getaway as worry-free as possible, so please ask us any questions!
Note:
Arabelle is 35 years old and requires some empathetic driving & use. She is a reliable vehicle, but as an older car, the possibility of mechanical issues is not out of the question. We have taken her on many trips and have not had any issues.
We do not recommend taking this vehicle on over-average mountainous inclined roads. We do not recommend driving this van more than 400kms a day. The van is to be driven at a MAX of 110km/hr.
This vehicle is made for slow-rolling travel. If you're looking not to get somewhere fast that's not too far away, this is your adventure wagon!

Recommendations

This seems to be a very popular driving tour that a lot of our previous renters have recommended.
Pickup vehicle from our location and head to Killbear PP, stay 1-2 Nights
From Killbear head over to Sudbury for the day and stay the night over at Killarney Provincial Park or La Cloche Provincial Park for 1-2 Nights
From either one of those parks head over to Manitoulin Island and spend a day or two, when you are ready to head back, you can take the ferry from South Baymouth and head over to Tobermory.
From Tobermory, you can decide if you want to head further west to Sauble beach and stay a few days there or head to the east and spend some time near Wasaga beach.
This trip should take you about a week or so depending on how you like to travel.

Meet your host, Mo

Member since 2020

A Westy owner who is passionate about sharing his love of old Volkswagens. All the vehicles go thru restorations before they are ready for road trips. Being a family man myself, I know the last thing you want to happen is to be stranded on the side of the road with a broken vehicle.
We are a family of 4, I mean 5 if you include a poodle. Passionate about 80's European vehicles and camping. So having a few Westfalia's came naturally to our family. We hope you enjoy Arabelle and Arius as much as we do.
Regards Mo

Trustworthy Westfalia campervan proved to be perfect for our two week trip around the Georgian Bay, with Algonquin, Killarney and Bruce Peninsula National Parks really blowing us away. The campervan was a great conversation starter during our trip!

We had an dreamy trip with Arabelle! She was a smooth ride and we enjoyed all the practical touches Mo has added to the van. Mo was helpful and communicative throughout. He oriented us with a thorough how-to and checked in with us a few days later to see if we had any questions or concerns. We hope to have another chance to travel in this beauty!

We had such a great trip in Arabelle. We travelled from Wales, UK to Toronto and this was the perfect way to explore Ontario. Mo was professional throughout, easily contactable and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Mo & Arabelle the Westfalia!

We had a great time renting Arabelle from Mo. We received the van in spotless clean condition and we had zero issues during our weeklong trip driving the car. Mo was very responsive to messages and helpful the entire time. I would very much recommend this rental.
