"What happens in the back, stays in the back. The No1 best-selling van among kidnappers and molesters for over 30 years."
Southernsanandreassuperautos.com description.
The Rumpo is a van featured in the following games.

It is manufactured by Bravado in the HD Universe.

Description

Design

The Rumpo is an average-sized van capable of carrying four passengers (two in the front, two in the back). It is common and can be found in most areas in the cities in which it appears, but like all vans, it tends to be most common in industrial areas. It also has 2 small windows at the very rear of the vehicle. In GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories, the van appears to be based on a first generation Dodge Ram Van with the side paneling of a Ford Van. A modified version of this van is used by the Southside Hoods gang.

From Grand Theft Auto: Vice City onwards, the Rumpo is very different, taking on the design originally sported by the Pony (see 'Naming confusion' section below). Rumpos typically sport a variety of company logos (eg. Final Build Construction). These Rumpos appear to resemble the first-generation Fiat Ducatos.

In Grand Theft Auto V, the Rumpo now resembles a Ford E-series with touches from the GM Van series. Strangely, despite being based on a Ford vehicle, it is built by Bravado when it should be more appropriately badged as a Vapid.

Performance

GTA III

When originally introduced in GTA III, the Rumpo is fairly fast, but with average handling and a tendency to two-wheel and tip over under rough cornering.

GTA VC-San Andreas

The redesigned Rumpo in GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City Stories handles much like the smaller Pony, but is slightly slower and heavier (weighting at 1700 kg, 100 kg less than the GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories renditions). Also, because of its height and stiff suspension it has a nasty tendency to jolt around and even tip on bumpy roads.

GTA V

The Rumpo in GTA V has average acceleration compared to other vans, but can be modified with a turbocharger in Los Santos Customs to bring it on par with the Ambulance. The Rumpo is somewhat agile and can corner easily at low speeds. Durability is average. One advantage the Rumpo has, being based on the Ford E-Series, is its high ground clearance, allowing it to cover rough ground with ease.

Variants

Black Rumpo

Rumpo-GTA3-UnderSurveillance-front

The black Rumpo obtainable during "Under Surveillance".

In GTA III, a unique all-black Rumpo (with black trims) appears during the "Under Surveillance" as a vehicle occupied by two targets which the player must kill. To acquire the van, the player must open fire at the vehicle at close range using a gun, forcing the occupants to exit the vehicle; if shot from a distance, the driver may use the van as a weapon to run over the player, making the act of retrieving the van more difficult. Once the targets are killed, the player may take control of the vehicle and save it in a garage after the mission is complete.

Red Rumpo

RedRumpo-GTALCS

The red Rumpo obtainable during "Bringing the House Down"

In GTA Liberty City Stories, a unique all-red Rumpo, with red bumpers, appears during the mission "Bringing the House Down" as the van carrying explosives to be placed on the old subway tracks that runs under Fort Staunton. To acquire the van, simply complete the mission in the van. As long as you were in the van as you get out of the subway, you should be in it.

Campaign Rumpo

Main Article: Campaign Rumpo

Campaign Rumpo is used to make campaign announcements during a Liberty City Mayor election in 1998.

Hoods Rumpo XL

Main Article: Hoods Rumpo XL

Hoods Rumpo XL is a gang variant of the Rumpo used by South Side Hoods.

Deludamol Rumpo

A number of 2 person capacity Deludamol-branded variants appear in the mission Mrs Philips. The capacity is presumably limited to 2 due to the cargo load of Deludamol in the rear compartment.

Weazel News Rumpo

The News Rumpo has a Weazel News livery. The Newsvan can come in four colors: gray, dark gray, white or red. Unlike the San Andreas version, the News van in GTA V lacks a satellite dish. Since the Heists Update, the Rumpo may be customized at Los Santos Customs to feature this Weazel News livery as seen in the photos below.

Naming confusion

There is some confusion regarding the names and designs of the Rumpo, the Burrito and the Pony throughout the 3D Universe.

In GTA III, the Rumpo chiefly resembles a Dodge Ram Van; in subsequent games, however, the Ram Van-derived vehicle is named Burrito. In GTA III, the Pony is a large van with an elevated roof; in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas, the Rumpo inherited this design, and the Pony was given a new one.

Trivia

General

  • The GTA Vice City, GTA San Andreas, and GTA Vice City Stories renditions of the Rumpo feature a cosmetic glitch in which any Rumpo using a Pay 'n' Spray will emerge with its front bumper facing in the opposite direction, towards the rear. The problem can be remedied simply by parking the vehicle in a garage, leaving the garage so that its door shuts, then returning. This glitch is also present in GTA Vice City's Pony. The problem appears also if the player activates the vehicle repair cheat.
  • The Rumpo, along with Burrito and Speedo, are the fastest vans throughout the series.
    • Coincidentally, the word "Rumpo" is also very similar to the swedish word "rumpa", which means "butt".
  • The Rumpo plays the following radio stations when entered:
  • Rumpo is Latin for "I burst". It is also the name of a village in Estonia, as well as a slang term for sex.
  • In Midnight Club 3 DUB Edition, the 11th race of the Big Playas in the 2nd laps a white Rumpo is seen.

GTA IV

  • In GTA IV there's a Rumpo wreck, suggesting that the Rumpo was in the Beta.

GTA Chinatown Wars

GTA V

  • Before the Heists Update, in GTA V and GTA Online, if the player entered a Los Santos Customs garage with the Rumpo, its name would humorously appear as "Grotti Rumpo", although the Rumpo is made by Bravado.
  • The modification options for the Rumpo were extremely limited in GTA Online until title update 1.11 where options for a tracker and insurance were made available. However, due to a lacking number of modifications, including performance upgrades, it is considered to be a worthless vehicle to be kept.

As of update 1.21 the Rumpo has limited performance modifications in singleplayer.

  • Interestingly, along with the Paradise, it is the only Bravado to date that is not based on any Dodge vehicle, neither having any resemblance to existing Dodge models.
  • In GTA Online, the Rumpo sells at $1,300 in Los Santos Customs.
