Hella: Vanagon GL

Volkswagen - Vanagon GL
Seattle, WA
Check Availability $180.00 per night


Hella, adjective / adverb: more, extremely, rooted in joy.

Hella embodies the urban slang of “hella” which is to amplify your adventures and give you more of the good life.  Hella is a 1991 vintage VW Vanagon GL tintop, with mechanical upgrades to give you peace of mind. Hella lets the whole gang get away from it all, while taking basic comforts of home with you.  Connect your favorite tunes using the new radio with Bluetooth connect and turn any adventure into a memorable road trip. Keep the good time rolling and your devices charged using outlets throughout the van.

This compact camper features day mode and sleep mode.  In day mode, convert the bed into a lounge-worthy bench and access the galley kitchen table. Kitchen features a portable propane camp stove and sink with running water. Keep all your essentials cool using the refrigerator. In sleep mode, Hella sleeps two inside the van in hella comfort (c’mon we had to do it!). The rear bench folds down to an almost queen-sized bed.  Dial-up the ambiance with the newly installed LED dimmable lights.  If you’re bringing along extra folks, pack a tent or add on a the two-person tent.

Heading off-grid?  Hella has newly installed roof-top solar panels to keep the auxiliary battery full which means the refrigerator will stay running keeping your beverages the perfect temperature.  Think you’ll be off-grid longer needing more power?  Add on the suitcase solar panels!

Hella has a lot of extra creature comforts like a full kitchen, interior table, solar shower, leather front driver’s seat, and after-market awning.  Here’s the deets on some of Hella’s other features:

50qt refrigerator (12v)
Dual burner propane camp stove
Collapsible AND folding camp dining table
2x collapsible camp chairs
1x collapsible side table
Cookware and utensils
Tableware (up to 4 people)
5-gal water container
Bedding and pillows
Privacy curtains
LED lanterns and flashlights
First aid kit
Dual USB device charging ports
12v adapter socket

Note: Hella is going to have picture day real soon.  In the meantime, we’ll have to use our words to describe this beauty.  The roof rack has been removed to make room for the awning.  Instead, there is a hitch mounted auxiliary carrier to haul an extra cooler or gear.

Whether you’re out on a mellow trip to kick back and relax or ticking adventures off the bucket list, Hella is your trusty (and cozy) side-kick ready to amplify your joy.  Have a hella great time in Hella.

Pick up location for Hella is in Renton, WA, about 25 minutes east of Seattle International Airport (SEA-TAC).

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.
