Air conditioned and fully outfitted for camping, both our vans are perfect for trekking along the coast, using as a basecamp for exploring downtown Charleston and other nearby cities and our nearby barrier islands like Folly, Morris and Isle of Palms and campgrounds including James Island County Park, Edisto Beach, Huntington Beach and Hunting Island State Park.
Rosie is a beautiful, fun and super functional 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia full camper. She features a powerful and reliable 2.0 liter 24-valve Ford Zetec engine conversion from Bostig Engineering, which specializes in modern engines for Vanagons.
With an incredibly tight turning radius (think Honda Civic tight) and short, 15 foot length, Rosie is as agile as a small car and with its upgraded suspension, off-road tires she’s solid and comfortable to drive. With her upgraded engine, she will also effortlessly make the climb up the Blue Ridge Escarpment to Asheville for exploring the western North Carolina mountains. Something you’ll likely want to do during the dog days of summer. Yes, she is air-conditioned.
“Gretta Van Lefturn”
Gretta is a 2003 VW Eurovan Full Camper. Outfitted by Winnebago, USA, she features the same basic “Westfalia” layout as Rosie and other classic VW campers, but with a few added and more modern touches. These include: a powerful propane furnace for cold-weather camping, rear rinse off shower, and dual front airbags, anti-lock brakes and a butter-smooth, 201 HP VR6 engine.
Here are a couple of cool “Love Letter” videos from GoWesty (Where Gretta was purchased) that show late model Vanagon and Eurovan full campers outfitted very much like ours in all their glory.
