"The Vine Van" 2014 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter
I grew up camping in a truck slide on and then a VW Campmobile. Glad to get back to RVing.
We have adapted our Camper for our dog Bella. So you have the option of a large dog kennel w/ a butcher block top in lieu of the bench seat.Bella's kennel has good ventilation, a soft pad and storage space underneath for dog food and dog accessories (bowls, leash, toys, treats).
This RV is so pet friendly it has a built in dog bed/kennel. Or you can have the bench seat that came with it. It's a model 170A with a full time bed in the rear. It's got a fully equipped kitchen, a wet bath and plenty of storage.
We love to travel and so does our dog, Bella. So much so that I took out the bench seat and built her a doghouse/kennel. An added benefit is a lot more counter space. It's removable so if you need to carry more than 2 people I can put the bench seat back in which also can be a bed for a third person. It’s really designed for 2 people though and it’s incredible how much tighter it gets with even one more person. No child safety seats can be used because the bench seat is sideways.

About the host, Geof
This RV is top of the line and well appointed. Geoff was very thorough during pick up and return and communicative throughout. We would highly recommend!
Great experience. RV van was a much better fit for our needs than standard RV we rented in the past. With RV and a screen tent and good weather we had everything we needed. Geoff was a pleasure to work with and responded immediately when we had a few minor technical problems.

Geoff’s sprinter was the perfect vehicle for us to take a trip out of the city for a couple nights and our dog loved it even more than we did thanks to the built in dog bed. It was easy to jump right into the RV life thanks to all of the necessities already being included (pots, plates, cups, silverware, TP, etc.). I do recommend you bring a mattress topper for comfort as there is only a thin bench cushion as the bed.
Also, I note the value lower than all other aspects of our experience due to the limit of 100 miles/day and 50 cents per extra mile. I see other have more miles and less cost/mile on the overage.

We had a fun trip to Shenandoah National Park in this van. We used it at sites with full hook ups and also with no hookups. We really enjoyed all the conveniences of the cooktop, comfortable bed, wet bath, ample storage, and spacious refrigerator with freezer. It has adequate space for two people. The wet bath is small but sufficient. The van is clean, is easy to drive, and everything worked as it should. The bed is comfortable with windows to let a breeze through. The air conditioner was nice for the middle of the day when it was hot. We would definitely rent this one again.
Geof did a very thorough overview of the van, and we never needed to refer to the clipboard he provided with instructions and notes. He was patient with questions, is communicative, and responsive even while we were on the road.

Geof was very detailed in his orientation. The RV was very clean and comfortable. We had a great trip. The only snafu was that sometimes the sensor in the liquid tanks did not register correctly, but upon driving a bit, they read correctly. Also, the water pump had to be switched on and off, because it ran continuously after filling up with the clean water at the campground. Geof was able to tighten the clean water knob and this stopped the continually running of the water pump. But this happened when we returned the vechile. We were new-bies and learned alot from this experience. We would definitely rent from Geof again. Nancy and Jack
Geof was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about the RV. He was also accessible and answered my millions of questions quickly. The RV was super clean and handled great while driving. We had an amazing camping trip! The best part of the RV was the kennel. This made for easy traveling and sleeping for our pets. The kitchen was fully stocked and a dream to cook in. Geof thoughtfully included a french press to meet my coffee needs. We couldn’t have asked for a better first time glamping experience. We will definitely rent from Geof again!
