This van conversion is just about this most adorable thing ever! The white walls make the space seem much brighter and the pops of color make the van really pop. Also, it’s no wonder this van looks so spacious inside — this model is the tallest on the market! From the kitchen backsplash, to the countertops, and the wood paneled ceiling — you can tell that a lot of work went into making this van really special. The beach and mountain views definitely don’t hurt either!

I saved this one for last because this Sportsmobile is vanlife luxury! This fancy 2014 Sportsmobile comes complete with an electronic pop-top and two queen size beds. Invite some extra friends along for your trip or keep the downstairs as a living room. This floorplan will give you so much versatility on your trip and is the ultimate #vanlife experience for your next San Diego vacation. Trevor will even drop this van off for you at the airport! So now you really have no reason not to rent this van.
