About this RV

VANOS is a 1988 custom, immaculate, vintage Ford Clubwagon.

NEW: Take the video tour*


Updated Covid-19 Cleaning Policy:

4 Day Minimum rentals are now required. Due to the time lost between renting for extra cleaning protocols, I have to require a longer rental minimum.

After each rental and inspection, the van is cleaned, disinfected, and left to sit for two-three days before any new rental is approved. Another general wipe down is then done prior to pick-up.


Complete with TWO fuel tanks for long drives, Vanos is wired for electricity hook-up from the outside to powers ceiling lights, AC/Heat unit on the roof, and several 12 volt and USB ports. Wall mounted TV with HDMI cord for laptops (may need to provide your own adapter).

Goal Zero Yeti 400 Amp Hour Battery Available (12 volt plugs, usb, etc). Powers the TV for hours.

The benches and table very easily convert to a bed.

Extra storage inside of the counter, including drawers, two shelves, and countertop. Microwave and camping stove included upon request for FREE. Must supply own butane for stove.

*Video tour is to facilitate with van demonstration and instructions for general use, but some items may vary slightly from viewing and actual rental (misc. items may be replaced or changed, etc.).

Vanos drives great and Josh puts a lot of thought into providing things that proved super useful on the trip. We had Bluetooth, portable charger and a mini projector that was really fun to use. The van was easy to drive even the through the twists and turns of the smoky mountains. Got several compliments from people at camp sites also. This thing is fun to drive and comfortable to sleep in, highly recommend!

Josh is a great person to work with and really sets a positive vibe for the trip’s start and end.

VANOS was great for a quick glamping getaway. Definitely took a minute to get used to driving the rig, really have to put your foot down on the break/gas. But once you’re used to it it’s great!

The vehicle is in mint condition and an absolute blast to drive and overnight in. Josh is flexible and a good communicator, and everything about the rental was very easy. A great experience.

Josh was very responsive at every turn which is really helpful when taking a vintage beauty like this on a wee trip. We purchased a mosquito net that we hung easily with the magnets that were already in the van and were able to fit two folding chairs of our own safely in the back to make this a perfect camping vehicle out in the great North Woods.
