This set brings back the red canoe, which hasn’t been seen in a long time! A canoe in orange-brown is in 79107: Comanche Camp from The Lone Ranger theme, but the red is a little more special. Now Brickset.com says that the Camper Van is the only one to have element 6021 in bright red, but that’s not actually correct. Back when I was a kid, I had a bunch of the Pirates Islanders sets. These came out in 1994, and three of the six sets had a canoe in bright red. I found my old one and it is identical (except for the stickers).
The front end for the vehicle is also new in white, and the 1×3 tiles in dark green were introduced with this set also. This part is now available in the newly released 60097: City Square, which I’d love to get my hands on, but that’s for another time. Other parts are pretty standard, but come in good or new colours, like the trapdoor and frame introduced in white.
