*Please note that Wanderer Vans are not permitted to travel into Canada.

Our Wanderer Class is our most basic (but still awesome!) sleepervan. Totally discreet with no signs, these vans are perfectly suited for backpackers. Although they are the oldest hire campers in our fleet, these vehicles are frequently serviced, very clean and well maintained! Don’t let the higher miles on the clock or the odd scratch and some minor wear and tear fool you, most often many vehicle parts have been replaced and upgraded. These vans are strong players.

We are replicating the true backpacker style, cheap campervan that you can find in places like Australia and New Zealand but after seeing some on offer there, we must be cheeky and say ours are in better condition and perfectly ready for your awesome, west coast USA adventure.

Key Features

  • 5 seats (2 front seats and 3 seats in rear – for comfort-ability, we recommend 2 adults or 3 smaller people in rear seats)
  • One super comfortable, full size bed (this is the same bed that is in our Sierra vans and shown in our ‘How to open bed’ video found on our FAQ page)
  • All have sliding doors on both sides of the vehicle
  • There is a storage area under the bed box, as well as storage in the trunk/rear of the van
  • Includes bedding & a convenient kitchen set up

Need camping car rental for an extended trip?

We require our renters to check and maintain the essential fluids (such as oil, brake fluid, coolant and power steering fluid) to ensure proper vehicle operation and to keep on our maintenance schedule at our nationwide fleet servicer. We can assist you with arranging service for the van during your travels to keep it running tip-top. There are places in the USA that can be extreme on vehicles. If you are considering doing a large number of miles, the Moab or Redwood Class is highly recommended.
