Big Tuna is for those who live for the weekend. It has all of the essential amenities of an RV without the restrictive size. It's agile handling, easy maneuvering, and great MPG will surprise you. On our journeys, we've carefully explored the remote dirt roads of Whitethorn CA, to parallel parking it in downtown San Francisco; Big Tuna has carried on thru it all.This van is a cozy home on the road, with a kitchen, dinette, bed, and bath all in one. LED lighting is throughout the interior of the van, as well as the garage under the bed. The solar powered electronic system is completely automated to make off the grid living a breeze with no hook ups required. Also in the garage is a diesel heater, a 21- gallon water reserve and a LP propane tank which fuels the stove and water heater for taking relaxing hot shower in the most imaginable destinationsIn the main living area is a kitchen with butcher block countertops with built in stove, an operable glass window, and a farmhouse-style sink, making the interior practical as it is stylish with plenty of storage space both above and below which is a rare with van livingStopping to sleep is as easy as parking and putting the shades up, as the queen bed comfortably sleeps two adults with room to spare. Lastly, our van does have a bullet toilet to use when needed.We're constantly working on the interior, so don't be surprised if it has additional features by the time you pick it up.What's includedIn addition to the van’s amenities, we include all of the items below.KITCHEN AMENITIES:

Hi, Matt and Jodee here, we live in the south bay, with our two pups Moose and Roo. We met in San Francisco a few years ago, but always left the city to explore more of the beautiful bay area and several small towns along the coast. We live for our weekend getaways either up north in wine country or camping down south in Big Bear. We love our van life style and hope you will too.

Jodee and Matt were wonderful hosts, meeting us the day before our trip to walk through the van operation so that we could get an early start on our trip. The van drives easily and comfortably, and is great on gas for such a large "home on wheels". There was much appreciated style and comfort additions such as a nice speaker, a well equipped but not cluttered kitchen set up, some extra soft pillows, with great bedding. The bed was a little short for my 5'10" partner but we made it work. All in all it was a wonderful weekend, getting to live our "van life" dream for a few days. Thanks J&M!

We had an amazing time with Big Tuna! We spent the week camping in Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks and this van truly had everything we needed - we flew into CA so we had none of our normal camping supplies. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking supplies and we loved having an outdoor shower and portable toilet. The owners left us good and detailed instructions, but were also quick to respond when we had questions. We would recommend this van!

Jodee and Matt were communicative, very sweet, and so accommodating. Big tuna was beautiful, ran smoothly, and everything we hoped for in a van. Highly recommend!

Thank you so much Matt & Jodee for allowing us to use your van!! We loved everything about this van! Super clean, drives great, & was well stocked with everything we needed. It was perfect for our trip down the coast to Big Sur & also into Yosemite. Would totally rent again!

The Van was nice, and is obviously a labor of love of the hosts. There were no issues in operating or driving the vehicle. It was well stocked with all the supplies that were needed for a 3 day camping trip.

Have a question?Get answers directly from the host

Q.How tall is the van?
A.
Tuna is 9" - 8" tall, so please be mindful of garages and low-hanging tree branches.

Q.What type of gas does the van need?
A.
Tuna gets excellent gas mileage, all thanks to being a diesel (green), so please check the gas pump color before filling up the tank.

Q.Is the van have an electrical hookup?
A.
Tuna has a solar panel on the roof and has enough charge for a 2-3days without sun. So no need for a hookup when you can live off-the-grid for a few days.

Q.What to do with the grey water tank water?
A.
If no food goes down the drain, you can dump the water into a road drain. If there is food, please find a proper dumping place, like at RV sites.
