Where should I take the van?

Where do I park it?
The great freedom of campervans is that you can park it wherever you can legally park a vehicle. Some people prefer the comfort and amenities of a state or national park while others are fine crashing in Walmart parking lot for the night. The key things to think through are if you desire amenities like restrooms and showers.
State park campgrounds
National park campgrounds
Dedicated campgrounds such as KOA
Trailhead parking lots
Public lands (only applies out west)
Walmart parking lot
Public parking spaces
The van does not require shore power hookups or sewer hookups so some campgrounds will allow you to stay on "primitive camping spots." These are camping spots that are normally used for tent campers. These rules will vary from campground to campground. I have stayed in campgrounds that cost $10 a night (primitive) and some that cost $80 a night (Full RV site). Be sure to plan your trip and call ahead for fees and availability if you like the security of being in a campground.
How will I know how to use everything?
We have instructional videos that show every renter how to use things in the van. These videos will be emailed to you after your purchase. We recommend that you watch them before picking up the van and reference them as needed on your trip.
Does the living area have A/C or Heat?
Campervan travel is incredible because it encourages you to focus on the adventure rather than the living space. Although our campervan includes a space heater, insulated curtains, a roof vent-fan and add-ons like down blankets, it does not have rear A/C or heating like a large RV or camper might have. Because of the compact size of our van, we trade things like rear air conditioning for gas mileage and compact parking. Sleeping bags or blankets can do wonders on a cold night
What are my options for using the restroom?
Just like any other road trip we recommend that you utilize gas stations, grocery stores, gyms and restaurants. If you stay at a campground, most will have bath house access that is included in your campsite.
What are my options for showering?
Most people who are road tripping will opt to take showers every couple of days instead of every day. However, here are some good options for when you do:
Go for a swim in the river
Use moist wipes to freshen up
Use the van sink to rinse off and freshen up
What if I break down?
Every van rental comes with roadside assistance. This is included in the price of your rental. We do our best to get you back on the road asap or in another rental if needed.
What about insurance?
As long as you have full coverage on your existing vehicle all we will need is a copy of your insurance card. If you desire, we do offer additional coverage that you can purchase before your trip for peace of mind. Just let us know your needs when you book your rental.
