About this RV

1990 Volkswagen Westfalia Campervan. Born and raised in the Yukon Territory, this faithful companion now spends his weekends roaming the rural Manitoban countryside in a never-ending search for the next shady tree, lake or river to rest beside.

Melvin is outfitted with a propane fridge and stove, sink, fresh water tank, swivelling captain's chairs, and 2 double beds. He has a 4 speed floor-shift manual transmission so please ensure you have someone in your crew who can handle a stick.

Please note that pricing on the website is often shown in US dollars first, then adjusted to canadian dollars at reservation time. Feel free to call if you have questions about the process.

Melvin is a great vehicle and I highly recommend taking him for your next road trip. His owner is great and easy to communicate with.

We took him to NE Ontario with two kids and had lots of room for all our stuff. Easy to pop up and down if you want to explore.

Derek was fabulous to deal with. The ad is exactly as promised. Fridge worked well, Melvin The Westy was very well stocked - even a netted tent to house a campsite picnic table. There were no mechanical issues, whatsoever, but the large screen at the front of the pop up and the side window screen have a few mosquito entry points that you will want to cover up before going to sleep. We had fun, and the camper is a great travel option!

We rented two vans as two couples from July 4th to the 11th, 2020.

If you want to trip in a small camper and are looking in Southern Manitoba this is the place to go whether you're a veteran camper with your own kit or someone who's familiar but hasn't done it for a while.

We were two couples, rented two Westy's and had a blast. "What you see is what you get..." isn't fair. Derek and Jessica do…
