Converted this summer out of pandemic boredom, Sonny is a converted 1996 Dodge Ram Van perfectly outfitted for those that want to hit the road for a week or two of adventuring but don't have an unlimited budget to do it.

Sonny packs a Full mattress (custom cut by 4" to about 72" tall to fit inside the shell), overhead LED lights, an Airmaxx fan for cooling & ventilation, shelving, under-bed storage, 4x 12v outlets throughout w/ 10x USB port adapters already in place, an inverter with 3x full-power outlets & solar panels & an isolator to make sure it all stays powered.

Sonny has about 140k miles, though the engine was rebuilt 40k miles ago & is road ready to handle whatever you got.

What's included

- 2x camp chairs
- Mr Little Buddy propane heater
- combination propane OR butane 1-burner camp stove
- 7ga water jug
- clean linens with a comforter plus a wool blanket
- under-bed storage container
- magnetic, moveable hooks throughout for extra storage
- 35qt insulated cooler
- solar-reflective windows coverings for night-time privacy.

Delivery within 50mi available upon request.

Recommendations

There are 80 parks in the Texas Parks & Wildlife system, many of them within an easy day's drive.

Within an hour or two are McKinney Falls, Bastrop, Beuscher, Llano, Enchanted Rock, Lockhart & Blanco. Additionally, many lakes are in the area as well as several rivers featuring tubing just an hour's drive south of Austin.

We recently took Sonny to Louisiana for a week exploring Lake Charles, Lafayette & Kisatchie National Forest. Driving in the national forest until you decide to pull over & sleep where you park (allowed in National Forests) is pretty spectacular!

Other things to note

- Pets welcome! (We have 2 pups & they travel quite comfortably.)
- No festivals or smoking.

We are new to this but hope to use Outdoorsy to share something that has brought a lot of joy to our lives. If this works out, we will likely buy another van (or 3!) and do it all over again.
