My campervan is fully equipped for those who are passionate about adventure big and small. Chester is a 2019 Ford Transit 250 high roof van. I am 5’11 and have several inches of open space above me! Beautiful custom self-conversion, equipped with a 10 inch memory foam bed (full) so you can rest peacefully! Large Dometic temperature controlled refrigerator with a separate freezer so you can stock up and not visit the grocery store for several days! 10 speed ventilation and exhaust located above the bed. Plenty of storage space underneath the bed or under the bench seat!

My kitchenette includes everything from measuring cups and dining wear to a portable Coleman stove so you can cook inside or out. Take a trip and have all of the essentials already packed so you can hit the road! There are no water or electric hookups. 2 battery banks charged by Solar power and the ability for the main engine to charge all batteries give this van plenty of power!

Large stainless steel sink includes a water pump for easy use, beautiful counter top and plenty of cabinetry. Chester also has black out window curtains for the back windows. Van is RWD so no driving into mud or sand.

Heater and AC are the stock AC/Heater integrated into the van. There is no separate AC or heating system that was added to the van so please prepare accordingly.

The van comes with a cassette toilet which is for #1's only. It is not treated for #2's.

Note: Will be relocating to Fayetteville, WV in February of 2023 so all rentals after February will be picked up there.

Recommendations

This van has seen it all! With the exception of the New England states, Chester has been to all other states. From dispersed camping to National Parks to chasing sunsets, everything is easier in a camper van! With this van only being 19 ft long, it can fit in most parking spots with no issues so it's easier to find camping or city sleeping! Looking for recommendations? Let me know what you are interested in and distance you'd like to travel and I will send you a list!

Other things to note

- This is not a 4x4 so absolutely no off-roading. This van is my baby and home. My dog and I travel through the US with it so I expect you to be respectful and treat the van as if it were your own.
- No smoking inside of the van
- Dogs welcome (big and small)!
- Thetford Porta Potti is more of an emergency potty (#1's only) and to be emptied upon return
- Do not let the battery banks get below 40%. Completely solar powered so if you need more battery, the van needs direct sunlight on the roof or to be driven.

We had such a GREAT adventure experiencing van life on our mini trip! Abby's van is so comfortable and nice which made the experience that much better! Abby was super helpful with the planning process and the logistics of renting through Outdoorsy. She definitely provided excellent communication and answered all my questions since this was a first time experience for us. I would definitely book again with Abby! Thank you.

Abby’s answer

I’m so glad you all had a great time and it was a pleasure having you all!

We had such an AMAZING experience with Abby! We rented Chester to see what van life is all about and if we could see ourselves with our own. From the very first communication about booking, Abby made sure to have excellent communication and willing to answer all my questions! We were from out of state so she gave us great recommendations on where to go and even helped with good trails! The van itself was so clean and ready for our adventure. Very dog friendly and she even had a basket of snacks for us! She was so helpful in going over everything we need to know about the van. Overall such a thoughtful, helpful and amazing trip Abby helped us with!

Abby’s answer

Thank you for your kind words, Eva! It was a pleasure hosting you all & hope you’re able to enjoy VanLife again in the near future!

Q.Are there any special tricks and tips that would help with operating the RV easily?
A.
This van drives like a SUV which is fantastic! The vehicle is RWD so no off-roading or driving on beaches (sand) because you will get stuck!
