Vintage RV Rental?

I've been obsessed with vintage RVs lately: 1940-60s. Does anyone know of any companies out there that rent out restored oldies, I could take for a roadtrip?


Thanks

Never seen or heard of one. The fact that some parts are nearly impossible to find makes it doubtful.

Good luck.

I've seen places in England that rent vintage campers, but not here in the States. Sadly, I think that they would be few and far between, if you could even find one at all over here...

If your talking about Sprites I most likely rented one of them when they were new

You can rent an old camper like mine (or one a decade older) from a couple of places around England - they are really popular there right now. I had to look up Sprite - those look fantastic! I've seen a lot of that type restored around and about and I think you may be right, I do recall seeing someone with a small fleet of them, but I think that they were 'permanently' parked, at least the one's that I saw. You could rent them for the weekend but only to camp in on site, not to pull off for a trip.

The thing that I really want to rent is in Ireland - Gypsy Wagons they call them, but I don't want to hijack this thread so I'll stop there.

As others have stated, if you go to the trouble of restoring a vintage RV/Camper/TT/etc. (or keeping in good shape from the beginning) it would be a tough call to let it out to someone. I'm not sure how they keep those things going in England, but I've bent over backwards to keep mine in good shape over the 20 or so years that I've owned it, and I would never let anyone else even drive it

I rented mine in Chelmsford just out side of London and we took it to Scotland using a LHD 70 Volvo 145 Estate.

First time I was in Ireland we drove in at Donleary ferry (hope I spelt that right) going to Limerick I passed several Gardi marked vehicles and thought that sure was a lot of security or messenger vehicles for the area.

I had a New 72 red 4dr Chev Impala at the time which stuck out like a sore thumb well about 2AM there was a knock on the hotel door informing me of the miscalculation that I had made actually when all was said and done they were pretty good about the situation.

renting a vintage RV

Seems to me I remember reading recently that Airstreams were for rent somewhere on the west coast. Do an internet search for this. Hope this helps.
