Description

It's the Mystery Machine!!! Straight out of Scooby Doo. We all think we're one of the cool kids, but wait until you see kids of all ages (even older than you) flip out when you show up in this thing -- everyone looses their freaking minds. Everywhere you drive people are taking pictures and giving you the thumbs-up. Fun for kids of all ages (I'm 51 and love it, it's my daily driver, and my 11 year old son loves it even more). Drop down monitors play the original Scooby Doo episodes on DVD from 1969, or you can pop in newer episodes/movies (or any DVD you want too). Includes "Zombie Lights" (green glow under the car), "Sasquatch Lights" (flashers), and a horn that can honk or play the iconic "Rooby Rooby Roo!!!" Seats seven, six with 3 point belts. Optional Recaro Booster seat available for free. You can see out, but not in, the big side bay windows. Great cruising vehicle, I've taking it from Disneyland to Death Valley to Oregon to Reno and everywhere inbetween. Gets surprisingly good mileage with the little v6, but it's not fast. It has a Starcraft interior conversion with captains chairs, extra sound insulation, fold down bed in the back, etc. too. Car is located 14 miles from SFO, 25 miles from SJC, 29 miles to OAK. You can Uber to my place and probably pick it up in less time than you can get a car from Enterprise/Avis/Whatever.

Extras

Child safety seat
I have two high-end Recaro seats. Our kids already grew up in them, so they are far from pristine, but they're 100% functional and you're welcome to use them for free. More info: https://bit.ly/2Lrnn51

Post-trip cleaning
The Mystery Machine is hand wash only! The wrap is both expensive and fragile,. Return the car hassle free, without worrying about cleaning up after your trip. Does not include spills or stains. Offered below cost to make it easy for both of us.
$39/trip

Parking details

Park in driveway, dedicated spot.

Guidelines

Dogs welcome. No smoking. DO NOT WASH exterior, car wash could destroy the Mystery Machine. It's hand wash only and I have an affordable (below my cost) option to do that for you for a no-hassle return -- see the Car Wash option under "Extras". Otherwise you're welcome to do it yourself. You can even use my hose etc. here if you want to, but it takes about an hour FWIW.

Faqs

  • Is this as fun as it looks?
    Yes, it's the most fun you will ever have driving a car. When you look out the window you will see people taking pictures of the car and giving you thumbs-up. You can signal back with the horn (that says "SCOOBY-DOOBY-DOO!!!)
  • Wait, is that really a Caravan?
    No, it's a Dodge Ram Van, 2001, with a Starcraft interior. Turo assigned me the Caravan model designation and I can't change it. A 1970's carpenter van or a VW bus might match the cartoon better (in some episodes the engine is in the front, others in the back), but then you wouldn't have ABS, airbags, 3 point belts, etc. that you get with this more modern vehicle...
  • Can I take it to Burning Man?
    Yes, and this car would be GREAT for it. Bed in the back. Super fun. I encourage you to go. but ... the dust on the playa is highly alkaline and really ages a car. The type of cleaning it needs afterwards, full detail, engine bay detail, under carriage wash, etc. is expensive and still won’t get it all out. I have unabashedly increased the rate and require a 7 day minimum for anytime during the burn. Of course, probably just like your own car, and every other car at Burning Man, you can't take it off road and have it be insured too. So keep that in mind.

Like zoinks Scoob, renting The Mystery Machine was the best decision I've ever made! Rick is a super cool dude, and we loved taking his van on a camping road trip. He was communicative, flexible on pickup/drop off times and helpful with all info on the van. You will not regret renting this van - doo it!!! Every single person we drove by honked, waved, smiled, gave a thumbs up, peace sign, etc. You truly can't beat that feeling of putting a smile on everyone's face - especially with the special "Scooby dooby doo!" horn. We even had one family wave us down from behind to pull over to take some pics. We took the mystery machine up to Humboldt county, drove Avenue of the Giants, and took it home via highway 1 (coming from Leggett). It did great on all roads, including the winding 1 that gains quite a bit of elevation between Leggett and Fort Bragg. No issues at all! We will definitely be renting the mystery machine again, I was sad to say goodbye when we dropped it off!

Better than I expected. Family enjoyed it. Got some good laughs from friends. Took family from out of the country sight seeing in san francisco it was all around great. Rick was great. He was just as excited as i was as he explained everything about it. Loved the experience.

Great van to rent for a fun trip! Had a lot of fun renting this out getting compliments everywhere we went to, super fun.

Osmar V.-Jun 17, 2019

Rick’s Mystery Machine was INCREDIBLE, I seriously have never had more fun on a road trip than with this thing. People are constantly giving you a thumbs up and taking photos. Memories I will never forget! Thank you so much Rick for being so flexible with pick up and drop off times. If you’re even slightly thinking about renting this van, just do it... You won’t regret it.
