About this RV


Abaco is a 1978 Manual Shift Deluxe Westfalia Pop-Top Camper :: 2 sleeping berths (sleeps 4 adults), ice box, sink, potable water tank, propane camp stove, RV electrical/water hook-ups, SmartPhone jack

We, your genial hosts at Vintage Surfari Wagons, are experts at facilitating California Epic Road Trips in our nostalgic yet robust VW Camper Buses. We have been for over 14 years now. Our intimate knowledge of this world class environment, coupled with the deep experience and intuitive understanding of what keeps these unique dream machines on the road is unsurpassed by any competitor in our region.

Before being resuscitated and restored, Abaco had been on life support for 11 years. And although her mango green Manual Shift Deluxe Westfalia Pop-Top Camper body hasn't changed, metamorphosis has given her a revitalized spirit, an abundance of energy, and new dreams of travel and exploration. Because Abby (a new name for a new beginning) knows what its like to sit at the brink of an eruption, to traverse the healing highways, and come out a better self, she is the perfect companion to take you on your trip to transformation.

VDUB TRAVEL TIP #91: Better late than never!

VDUB FACTOID: The Abaco Islands lie in the northern Bahamas. The oceanic islands (also known as an archipelago) are mainly of volcanic origin.

Very enjoyable and a great experience. Missing a 5th star because of the total cost of the trip. In general a memorable, fun time.

Had a wonderful time driving “The Bus,” again. Slowed my life down like it once was. Ran well. Absolutely no problems. Passenger side mirror needed constant adjustment, but we remembered it was an “issue” with my ‘67 way back when. So we laughed about it. Thanks for the opportunity for such an experience. I was reluctant to give up the keys!

One of the best decisions I have ever made in my entire life was to rent a 1978 VW Abacore from Bill and Diane at VE Surfaris. Vehicle was a pleasure to be in the entire time. These are great people with a great product. I will be back. Highly recommend!

Our vacation with Vintage Surfari Wagons surpasses our dreams. We are in love with our wagon which was very clean and in top shape for our birthday/anniversary trip to the desert. Hosts, Bill and Diane, worked well with our requests and had the van supplied with everything we needed for comfort and fun. We would love to return for another outing! Driving a vintage vehicle kept us laughing, slowed the pace, brought us back in time, and I might add, attracted attention. 👍
