Conversion vans are vans that have been converted into smaller versions of RVs. They’re also known as Class B RVs and come in different sizes, depending on the size of the original vehicle. Conversion vans have become super popular over the last few years thanks to social media and the culture of “van life.”
A conversion van rental can be made from all kinds of vehicles, including old buses and Sprinter vans. Some can be pretty basic while another is a luxury conversion van rental. Either way, most conversion van rentals have a bed and small kitchen. Larger conversion vans may even have a bathroom and shower.
Conversion van rentals are a good fit for solo travelers and couples. Renting a conversion van probably isn’t a good fit for a group or a family with kids because there just isn’t enough room. If it’s just you, or you and a significant other or pet, you’ll find that a conversion van rental offers exactly what you need to explore and enjoy the outdoors.
One of the biggest perks of traveling in a conversion van is that you can camp pretty much anywhere. You don’t have to worry about calling ahead and trying to reserve a spot in a campground; you can easily pull over to almost any spot and set up camp.
Conversion van rentals are also a lot easier to drive and maneuver. Bigger RVs and trailers require more driving experience, but driving and parking a conversion van is similar to driving an everyday vehicle.
Another cool thing about renting a conversion van is that you'll find they usually feature custom upgrades, higher-quality materials, and more amenities, but at a lower cost than renting a large RV.
Now that you’ve decided a conversion van rental is best for your trip, how should you go about finding one? One option would be to rent one from a large chain company. However, these rarely offer conversion vans because there isn’t enough demand for them in that particular location; instead, they prefer to keep Class C’s, Class A’s, and trailers on hand.
Another option would be to rent a conversion van from someone who owns one through a peer-to-peer platform like Outdoorsy. On Outdoorsy’s RV rental marketplace
