Why you should stay:  Retro camper available anywhere you want to be.

  • Location: Virginia Beach
  • Sleeps: 3
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $135/night

Built in the 1960s, the hosts restored the camper to its former glory and furnished it with retro appliances, floral textiles, and pops of art. There’s also a small kitchen area, a full-sized bed, and a convertible twin for a third guest.

This booking doesn’t include the campsite reservation, but does include cleaning, hauling, and pick up from wherever you’re staying in the Virginia Beach area. This camper works best with full hook-up campsites equipped with water and electricity. Obviously the main draw is the beach, but there are also a ton of museums, state parks, and botanical gardens and outdoor spaces within a 25-minute drive of most beach campsites.
