Frankie is a gem. She loves adventure and just wants to help you get out in nature.
I built her out with the help of my brother back in 2020 and am always upgrading and fixing things in the van to make it the perfect adventure vehicle.
I recently put in windows on the side which make it seem even more homey than it did before.

Other things to note• Please make sure you turn the propane tank off after use.
• Check the grey water level and empty semi-frequently so it doesn’t over flow.
• The outdoor shower is great for rinsing off sandy feet or muddy boots so that you can keep the small walk space clean and don’t track sand/dirt into the bed.
• The heater and air conditioning only work when the van is running from the front part of the cab.
• Smoking Mary J is fine, just no cigarettes or cigars please!
• The big fan went out but I have 3 portable fans that work just as well and can be moved around to keep you cool at night.
• I do have my mileage limit set to 200 miles per day and then $0.35 per mile after that.
• The van is only powered by solar. Make sure you have it in the sun for a few hours each day. A full charge should last about 2 days with no sun exposure.
• No hot water. When using the shower in the back, use the cold knob.
• No filtered water at this moment. I ask around and fill up my water tank from trusted water sources and still drink that.

Meet your host, Audrey

Hello! I'm Audrey and I love all things outdoors. I try to go camping every other weekend during the summer and take a long trip in my Van towards the end of every summer as a last hoorah. Last year we went to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone which has been my favorite van trip thus far. This year we are planning on venturing out East and exploring Maine and Vermont! I have a chocolate lab named Louie that loves swimming in lakes and hot dogs.
