Vandy isn't like the usual RV or Winnebago mass-produced camper van. I built out my van custom to live in it full time. I wanted to live more minimalist and simplify everything. Vandy doesn't have hookups for electrical and water, there's no black water tank, no messy+stinky dumping or being tied to crowded and loud RV parks and campgrounds. The batteries charge off solar power and water runs from a surprisingly convenient set of water jugs. You can fill up without having to find the perfect spigot that fits your hose. The Laveo dry flush toilet flushes with a button and is easy to empty with no smell or contact with anything unsightly. Perfect for anyone new to RVs or trailers.

  • Sleeps: 2 guests
  • Seats: 2 seatbelts
  • Fresh water tank: 12 gallons
  • Fuel: Diesel

Vanlifer, wildland firefighter, backpacker. I have lived in my van for about a year and thought I could try to rent it out while I am travelling, on extended backpacking trips or putting out forest fires in the summer.

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
A.
I am generally around all day, especially when expecting pickup/dropoff. Keep me updated with any delays and I can usually make it work. Almost every rental I've had so far has had a schedule change at some point.

Q.Are there any special tricks and tips that would help with operating the RV easily?
A.
If you are concerned about driving a large van, the biggest difference is really just the height. The high roof may require you to slow down a bit more when turning and don't forget to watch for low hanging branches. Take dips perpendicular to prevent the side to side rocking. be patient when backing and don't be afraid to hop out and check behind you often.

Q.Can I pickup the van and drop it off somewhere else? (different city or state)
A.
Feel free to let me know any potential plans and I can try to help, but these requests are often difficult. You would have to cover the cost of my travel to the destination as well as driving back, fuel cost, etc. It probably makes more sense to take an extra day to drive back and fly out of Salt Lake.
