Meet your host, Thanh

Member since 2019

This van was built for me in my spare time as a hobby. Originally bought to take my daughter to out of town soccer tournaments, spent 2 years to fix all mechanical issues and gradually converted to a self-contained camper van. While waiting for the kids to grow up so I can travel full-time, I thought I could share the van with others who have little time to do what I did.


Camper VanRental #145896

Chevrolet conversion van, seats five, sleeps four, two on top in the roof top tent and two (maybe 3) on the electrically-operated fold down bed at the push of a button. Van has low miles (120K) and strictly maintained according to rec. schedule. Van is equipped with 2000W inverter running off 200AH batteries. Rental includes a 59 qt. portable frig powered full time by the house batteries. Microwave, coffee maker, toaster, rice cooker, blender, and hot water tank run off the AC inverter. Propane stoves for more power-extensive cooking. Portable solar panel and a 2000W gasoline portable generator provide emergency backup. This setup makes the van self-sufficient and could be used for dry-camping. Electrical and water hook ups also available. Van goes thru complete and regular checkups. We, friends, and renters have driven over 20K miles last summer without any issue. Small sink for brushing , light washing, 40 gallon fresh water tank under the floor, enough to take hot showers. Lower bed can be extended to 80 inches with the foldable ottoman. Diesel heater installed so it can be used for winter camping. Outside shower features Camplux external instant hot shower (see picture).
The roof tent sleeps 2 adults (80 x 50 inch) and also can be used as storage (20 cu ft approx.). The additional roof top tray with the supplied bag can carry another 10 cu ft. of cargo plus another 10 cu ft from the hitch carrier.
The van is much more quiet and pleasant to drive than a class C, functionally (place to sleep, cook, eat, and relax after exploring), pretty much the same as a much more expensive Pleasure Way Tofino van, cost effective, efficient and a perfect fit for two people also workable for larger parties. Better alternative than hotel + rental car + restaurant meals option.
Just bring your personal items and go. Everything you need for for camping or trips is provided at no extra charge. Hitch carrier for extra storage or bike carrier provided if requested.

Thanh was awesome!! Great communication, making the whole process easy and enjoyable. Although we didn’t use all of the extras with the van, it was nice that they were there if needed. The van runs great and rides pretty nice. I wouldn’t hesitate to rent it again the next time we come to the area.

Thanh was very responsive and super helpful getting us accustomed to the van and all the little features he installed for it. The additional written instructions were self explanatory if you wanted to reassure to operate things properly. We had everything we needed (chairs, table, separate potable fresh water tank, Grill, all relevant kitchen utensils) for our Oregon road trip. He even gave us a shower setup and an external generator which we did not need at the end but it was somewhat comforting to know we had one :) The roof top box helped stowing stuff we didn’t need every day so we had to rearrange less stuff on a daily basis. I’m used to my VW T3 and the van is about the same size - maybe little longer but perfect for 2 people. The van rides super smooth, has very comfy seats and everything worked as designed. The listing was absolutely accurate and we were positively surprised with our first van renting experience and Thanh for sure played a big part in that. Definitely recommend.

I had an absolutely amazing trip along the coast with this conversion van. Thanh did an outstanding job on upgrading the van as well, had no issues whatsoever. I appreciate you letting me make great memories with it.
