About this RV

Hello! Laci + Adam here! We are recently married Chicagoans looking to share our home on wheels with you! This van was built to quench a thirst to explore every beautiful nook & cranny hidden in the cities and parks across the US.

Fortunately for you, we run a company in Chicago and our business demands limit how much we can hit the road (sad, I know!). While we are tending to our professional obligations, we want others to have access to use our van to explore, seek adventure, enjoy the vanlife or whatever your soul craves.

This van has 2 seatbelts and the bed is a full size with a pull out for a third sleeper in case you meet up with a friend along your trip. Travelers are not to be in the back cabin during driving for comfort and safety reasons.

Van Features:

This 4 season van is a fully equipped Ford Transit–250 custom-built conversion. Complete with top of the line features that include: an indoor shower, compost toilet, tankless hot water heater, full-size porcelain kitchen sink with everything you'd need to prepare a wonderful meal, separate filtered water faucet, two compartment fridge/freezer, 2 burner stove/oven, (5) 100 watt solar panels, 1080p LED TV, Webasto gasoline heater, Zerobreeze Mark 2 A/C, pull-out spare bed, discreet laundry chute, plenty of storage, a garage with indoor space for all your camping gear and a 42 gallon water tank.

Laci and Adam were the best hosts we could have asked for, and the van was the perfect introduction to the RV/van life. They were proactive in “training” us on the van with helpful Instagram videos and were super responsive to anything we needed throughout the trip. The bed was comfy, the van was easy to drive, and the kitchen and “garage” were stocked with all the essentials you could need. Already planning our next trip - I’m sure once word gets out about Cassi, it’ll be hard to get a booking!

Working with Laci was great! She was always quick to respond and happy to answer any questions I may have.

The van (Cassi) was just as gorgeous and the pictures, if not more. She was well stocked so we were able to cook all our meals.

Absolutely. Best. Trip. Ever.

Owners of our rental went out of their way to think of everything! Travelled for 2 weeks from OH to CA and back...never missing the luxuries of home thanks to the cozy amenities of our rental “Van Wife.”

WATCH OUT - you might end up very disappointed if you reserve this van. My family was very excited to go on a trip with Laci's van. We made a reservation almost three months in advance. A couple of weeks before our trip, Laci messaged me that she wanted to update the reservation's conditions to exclude unlimited mileage. Although not ideal for us, we were willing to pay the extra cost to safeguard…

Laci and Adam's van "Cassi" was an awesome place to live for a week. We circled Lake Michigan, spent time in the 'UP' and brought folding electric bikes for riding on trails and beaches. We had so much fun, we are now considering buying a van and doing a conversion ourselves. The Van is comfortable and has everything you need to experience #vanlife.
