Recommendations

This Adventure Van is perfect for the coasts of the Great Lakes in spring and summer or the shores of the Atlantic in the fall or winter.

Some of my favorite places are Waco Beach Michigan, Warren Dunes Michigan, Starved Rock IL, Matthiessen State Park IL, Chain O Lakes State Park IL, Picture Rock Michigan, Key West Florida and my personal all-time favorite Beaver Island Michigan.

If you are having difficulty deciding where to travel I suggest downloading any of the following adventure apps.

I have not attempted to drive in the mountains of the west, I assume it will be unable to handle altitudes above 5000 feet. So at this time I will not be accepting bookings where travelers plan to be above 5000 feet.

The excellent MPG and self-sufficiency make the Adventure Van perfect for long roads trips or the simple weekend getaway!!

Other things to note

No Smoking
No Towing
No Festivals
No Over-landing / Off-roading
No Altitudes over 5000 feet
No renters under the age of 25
Well Mannered Dogs Allowed (weighing less than 45lbs)
Dog can not be left in the van alone due to safety concerns.

You may request to bring your own bikes given they safely secure onto the bike rack. A.M.E. Will not be held liable for damage to your bikes.

Ford did not design the drivers compartment of the Transit Connect for people over 6ft tall. If you are over 6ft tall this van will be tight for you. :(

Robert responded to all requests quickly. We had a thorough walk through when picking up the rental that showed us how to use all accessories. Lots of amenities along with the van. Highly recommend.

My partner and I had an awesome adventure up the Michigan coast with this van! Was the perfect size, plenty of space for our stuff but super easy to drive and not cumbersome at all. Robert is exactly the kind of person you want to rent a custom built camper from - highly communicative, meticulous and detail-oriented. The van was in excellent condition and well taken care of. The many thoughtful details included with the rental (insulated mugs, boardgames, blender, the list goes on and on) on top of all the camping essentials made our experience the most comfortable we’ve ever camped! 10/10 would rent again. Thank you Robert for all of the love and care you’ve put into this thing.

Absolutely adored our stay and travels in the Adventure Van! This van is kitted out with pretty much everything you could possibly need for van life. We drove around the great lakes region for 1 1/2 weeks in late summer. The nights were chilly, but the van was cozy!

This camper van was awesome! Fully loaded with tons of camping supplies and easy to use. Robert was extremely helpful and communicative. He answered all of our questions promptly. Definitely recommended.

Robert’s answer

I had a blast renting this wonderful camper for a work trip to Tennessee. It was the perfect van to keep me feeling "self-contained" so I could maintain social distancing throughout my trip. The van is well-equipped, clean, and comfortable. Robert was really great to work with and has put in a lot of money and effort to make this van available. I'd definitely rent it again! You have to learn to drive it gently and not take any risks like you might in a vehicle with more power. Other than that, it ran great and reliably for my whole trip. Be nice to it when you rent it... I'd love to spend more time with it! :)

Robert's camper van is AWESOME! My friend I enjoyed every bit of it. Robert is a great host. He is super friendly and always answer our questions. This van has everything you could ever need when you camp, it has not only beach chairs, carpet, awning, but you can also find S' more sticks, cast iron pan, bug spray... It has a super-efficient cooler that our ice didn't melt for 4 days. It also has a battery bank and we never has to worry about charging our phones and electronics. It is really a car full of all the fun things. The van is very easy to drive and it is truly the best way to travel now. I highly recommend this van!

Thanks!
