Please Note: Due to cleaning requirements, RBG is only available for rentals of 4 days or longer. Like her namesake, the RBG packs a big punch in a small footprint. The insulated walls and ceiling are sealed with wood and the floor is finished with wood laminate. There is subway tile backing the two burner gas stove (requires inverter to start) which has a supply tank under the van. There’s a fully stocked kitchen with a domestic fridge w/ freezer compartment. And the sink is connected to a grey water tank that drains from the outside (no lugging collection tanks around). You can also fill up with fresh water from a garden hose via the port in the side of the van (also available shore power hook ups). There are two cabinets for clothing at the foot of the memory foam queen mattress plus additional storage in the rear where you can find camp chairs and solar shower packs plus plenty of dog and people towels. A tepui tent on top expands the sleeping options to four and if needed a conversion kit is included for the front seats to convert to a bed. Storable dining room /work table adds flexibility to the space. Solar panels run most everything (plenty of charging ports) with an inverter on board for the larger energy needs. As the van is under 20’ long it has the advantage of being able to fit in car camping sits and it has a great turning radius (plus backup camera for assistance). All season tires make Highway driving smooth (and quiet) while giving the needed grip off-road. MPG of approx 15 with unleaded gas (87) as it’s fuel makes filling up easy-peasy. The RBG is ready to head on out on an adventure with your furry friend... are you??

We had an amazing trip! This camper van is very functional and cute. Lots of space and well equipped. We only had to bring our clothes and the food. The van is easy to drive and operate. Communication with Kimberly and her husband was easy. They are very generous.

Fabulous getaway with RBG! Van is in great shape with lots of nice touches (e.g., dog bowls, extra towels, biodegradable soap). The pickup and drop off processes couldn't have been easier.

It was an absolute pleasure to spend a week zipping around Joshua Tree in RBG! This was our first experience with a cargo-van style camping vehicle and it really felt like we lucked out on amenities. The interior is beautifully decorated and thoughtfully composed, the kitchen is fully stocked, and water/power systems were highly intuitive. Once we became accustomed to using water sparingly, it became clear we could have stayed out for a week or more at a time without returning to civilization to top up any onboard resources. If you've ever used an RV or boat before, living in RBG is a similar experience but with way more agility. If you're camping in the winter (as we did) be sure to keep the propane bottles topped up, as the only onboard heating is a table-sitting propane radiator called Mr. Buddy that can operate inside, given some ventilation. Be aware, it's front wheel drive only so take care on sketchier road surfaces like sand. Overall, absolutely loved this trip and would recommend RBG to anyone trying to get out of dodge for awhile.

Have a question?Get answers directly from the owner

Q.How can I check my battery charge/levels?
A.
Check your power percentage on the ‘Tri-Metric’ panel (next to Inverter panel in cupboard) by hitting ‘Select’ until you see the ‘Battery % Full’. You never want your battery to go below 50%.

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
A.
Fairly flexible - have ability to do remote key hand-off and return.

Q.How long will the battery charge last?
A.
RBG is powered by (2) solar panels on the roof and a hook up to the van’s engine. When you're parked or driving on a sunny day the solar panels are collecting energy and converting it to power through an inverter. RBG also has alternator charging, so when you drive the engine also works on charging the batteries. With average power use RBG can last up to 7 days without sun or driving.

Q.What can I charge in the van?
A.
Located throughout the van (kitchen, bench seat area and sliding door side) there are several conventional outlets much like the ones found in homes. These outlets are intended for charging larger electronics (computers, cameras, etc…) and to run small to medium sized electronics (speakers,phones, etc.) To use the standard outlets the inverter must be turned on. There are several USB ports (sliding door side, bench seat area,bed area) which don't require the inverter to be on.
