San Francisco/Oakland, CA
Check Availability $350.00 per night

Gandalf is a magical van

Although it may seem too good to be true, this van is not a work of fiction. Gandalf is a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, custom-built by Automotive Designs & Fabrications, and the perfect camper van for six people! This van is located near San Francisco so the whole family can explore the magic of the Bay Area (and beyond) in complete comfort. With a 7-night minimum, this van is perfect for long-term adventures! 

“The world is not in your books and maps. It is out there.” – Gandalf

With room for up to six passengers, Gandalf will take you on a road trip to remember. The super-comfortable bunk beds in the back are basically Sleepover Central. And all of the seats swivel to create a spacious living and dining area. Gandalf’s powers never cease!

Other on-board amenities include:

  • kitchen sink with water pump
  • built-in induction stove
  • electric refrigerator
  • exterior shower with hot and cold water
  • portable cassette toilet

Gandalf is ready for anything. With a built-in heater and 4×4 capabilities, this Mercedes-Benz Sprinter camper van stays cozy and steadfast in wintery weather. There’s also a ceiling fan to keep you cool when it warms up. And Gandalf has plenty of power to offer thanks to the solar panels, lithium batteries, and shore power hookups. Whether you’re camping off grid, cruising the coast, or meandering in the mountains, you’ll be happy to have Gandalf at your side.

This camper van can be your home away from home (on wheels!) and your sage guide to van life. When you rent from GoCamp, all you need to do is grab some groceries, load up, and head out! And don’t forget your gear because there’s plenty of storage space in the “garage” under the platform beds and in the overhead cabinets.

If you need a camper van for six people, then look no further. Be as wise as a wizard and rent Gandalf for your next vancation!


This van is located in Piedmont, California about 23 miles northeast of San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and about 12 miles north of Oakland International Airport (OAK).

Pick Up and Drop Off

Rentals are Calculated on a 24-hour Basis: The rental period is generally considered to be 24 hours. If you pick up the van at 10 am, you’ll be expected to return it around 10 am. Most van owners can accommodate requests for a few extra hours at $20/hour. Alternatively, if you want to pick up in the morning and drop off in the evening, simply select the optional half day add-on when completing your reservation.

Pick Up and Drop Off Time: There is no set pick up and drop off time. You’ll make arrangements suited to your needs and schedule with the van’s owner. You can indicate your preferred pick up and drop off time when completing your reservation; final arrangements will be confirmed with the van’s owner.



Insurance coverage includes $1 million in liability to the renter, $1 million in liability to the van owner, and comp and collision coverage up to $200,000. Insurance coverage starts at $49.50 per night. Prices may vary by vehicle and location.

Roadside Assistance

We make 24-hour roadside assistance available for $15 a day. Coverage includes: towing, flat tire assistance, emergency fluids delivery, battery boost, and a mobile mechanic. Many van owners require 24-hour roadside assistance as part of the rental. Where coverage is mandatory, you must either purchase our policy, or show proof of comparable coverage, including 1) RV towing and 2) towing distance of 100+ miles.


125 miles per night is included in every rental. Additional miles are charged 35 cents - $1 per mile depending on the vehicle. For example, on a four-night rental, you will have 500 free miles. If you traveled 600 miles, at 35 cents a mile you would pay an additional $35 at the end of your trip.

Security Deposit

We'll place an authority to charge $1,000 - $1500 (vehicle dependent) on your card two days before your rental starts. The authority to charge is released, less any additional fees, usually no more than seven days after you return.
