This van will take you anywhere you want to go! With a queen sized bed to comfortably fit two and a solar panel electric system (separate from the engine’s electrical) powerful enough to power a cpap machine, it provides a close-and-comfy space to get out of the elements in the desert or mountains.

Dylan’s answer

Thanks Lori! So honored you chose us! So glad you were comfortable! We have to agree with you on the bed. It’s our favorite part ourselves!

Dylan was an awesome custodian of Chalky. The van was clean and well maintained and it was a ton of fun to take up on the long trip up to Morro Bay State Park. Highly Recommend!

Dylan’s answer

Glad you had a great trip! Never forget the Fish n’ Chips! We’d love to host you again!

Had an amazing time with our pups in Joshua Tree with Chalky! Kept us safe and warm from the 22mph winds that were blowing upon our arrival. Had a little issue with the sink (slight malfunction with the button to turn it on), however, aside from that, Chalky drove great, and had ample room for two humans and two dogs. Would definitely rent from Dylan again and take Chalky out for another adventure!

Chalky was the perfect chariot for our coastal excursion. Wonderfully customized by Dylan, everything worked as advertised and was as comfortable and convenient as can be. Dylan's a great guy, too. Really on top of communication and making sure we had everything we needed for our trip. This baby will turn some heads for sure; you will not drive longer than 10 minutes before someone leans out of their car and yells, "RAD, BRUH." A unique and fun adventure with Chalky!

We had the BEST time in Chalky. Dylan and his girlfriend were the sweetest hosts that tailored the van to our needs with their new package upgrades! It pretty much fits in a normal parking space so we didn’t have many restrictions when it came to exploring different areas. It worked out perfectly for our trip and the communication with Dylan was outstanding. Would definitely recommend!

Dylan’s answer

LOVED hosting you two! You’re a delightful couple. We only wish you lived closer so we could see more of you! Thank you so much for renting with us!

Love love loved Chalky! Took a trip to Zion for my birthday and very happy I rented with Dylan for my first time ever renting, great host! He ensured to answer my questions way before and during my trip. He was very helpful and understanding of any issues I had. Warm linen and a portable heater were provided. Stovetop, cookware, seasonings were available to make meals, didn’t have to worry about anything but bringing the groceries. Camping chairs, firewood, hot coco and yummy s’mores were also provided for a good cozy time by the fire! When it was time for bed, Dylan has a projector that hooks up to the phone and boom! Movie night with colorful led lights too. A great surprise was the birthday decorations put up for me! I had no idea, but absolutely was the sweetest thing. Had a yummy cupcake and a cute birthday card! Very appreciative of the whole experience. I loved Zion and loved that Chalky took me there! Thank you guys so much! I hope more people fall in love with Chalky, you guys are great.

Dylan’s answer

Thank you so much Tirsa! We felt so lucky that you picked us to spend your birthday! We hope to see you again! And don’t forget to mention this review when you do so we can hook you up with a discount! 😁

I had an A+ experience with Dylan and Chalky the Van. Dylan was super communicative and friendly. He accommodated to all my requests, and was going above and beyond to make sure that my experience will be unique. He set up a rack for my surf board and delivered to me the Van because I couldn't make it to where he was.

Dylan’s answer

High praise from an A+ renter like yourself! Thank you for choosing us to share your great vibes and amazing adventure! We hope to see you and your surf board again soon! Thanks again for the amazing pics!

Chalky Rules!! What a suave and stylish chariot! We had an amazing trip. Everything worked great and Dylan was there to answer any questions and make travel recommendations. Chalky, we will ride again my friend!

Dylan’s answer

"Suave and stylish chariot." Might need to borrow that one.... Looking forward to having you both back!

Dylan's Chalky was a wonderful van for a getaway from LA! Chalky had everything we needed - clean water, comfy bed, great stovetop and oven, lots of storage, she drives like a dream AND IS A WIFI HOT SPOT!!! We loved adding our own drawing to Chalky's exterior and had a wonderful time.

Chalky was a VERY reliable and wonderful ride. We had such an amazing road trip experience. It was amazing to have everything we needed.. and Dylan went above and beyond to include essentials, dish ware, cleaning products, camping gear, and he even threw in a movie projector. Everything worked beautifully, and Dylan was readily available if any issues arose. I highly recommend renting this van. You will not be disappointed!!
