Our Vans

Our Vans

We currently have two VW Westfalias for rent and should be adding a third VW camper van in 2019. Half Throttle is our 1973 vintage Bus and Bullwinkle is our 1986 Vanagon. Each VW Westfalia camper van has had more than $25,000 of work to get it ready for our rental pool. While you’ll notice plenty of factory-standard features with each Westfalia, both vehicles have been customized from the ground up. We’re confident that you’ll be pleased with the quality of our camper vans and pre-trip planning support for car camping in New Hampshire, Maine or Vermont.

Bullwinkle

Bullwinkle is our 1986 Westfalia. Bullwinkle, along with being a cartoon character everyone loves, is the name of a trail at the Grand Targhee Resort in Wyoming. When we flew out to Montana to pick this VW Vanagon up in 2016, we spent some time downhill mountain biking at the Grant Targhee Resort and were reminded how phenomenal VW camper van trips are with mountain bikes in tow. Like our 1973 bus, Bullwinkle has been fully restored with a rebuilt engine, transmission, shocks and a collection of other improvements. You’ll definitely turn some heads as you point Bullwinkle to your next New England destination.

Half Throttle

Half Throttle is our 1973 vintage Westfalia bus. Half Throttle was found in Western Montana and after two years of restoration work, every part of this bus has been updated. Since the original engine lacked power, we upgraded the bus with a completely rebuilt 2.2 liter engine, a new transmission, new brakes, custom paint job, a new electrical system and a custom interior unlike any other you’ll find on this planet. With so much cost, time and effort put into restoring this beauty, we ask you “throttle down” when she hits the road. We also rent out Half Throttle for special occasions such as weddings–please inquire.
