Chevy conversion van, seats five, sleeps four, two in the roof top tent and two on the electrically-operated fold down bed. Van is equipped with 2000W inverter running off 200AH batteries, includes a 59 qt. portable frig powered full time by the house batteries. Microwave, coffee maker, toaster, mini-blender, and air fryer run off the AC inverter. Propane stoves for more power-extensive cooking. Portable solar panel and a 2000W portable generator provide emergency backup if needed. The van was built to have everything you need for dry-camping. Renters have used it in campgrounds, off-the highways, at rest areas, and other places.
Van is maintained according to recommended schedule, goes through a complete check and road-tested by the Master Mechanic (Me) before each trip. Has small sink for brushing , light washing, 40 gallon fresh water tank under the floor could be filled for long showers at camp grounds. Diesel heater installed for winter camping. Hot external outside shower is set up at the back of van.
The lower bed is extendable to 80 in. Long , 56 inch wide. The roof tent sleeps 2 adults (80 x 50 inch) and used to store bedding supplies. The additional roof top tray with the supplied bag can carry another 15 cu ft. of cargo plus another 10 cu ft from the hitch carrier box.
The van is much more quiet and pleasant to drive than a class C, functionally (place to sleep, cook, eat, and relax after exploring), the same as a much more expensive, new camper van ($75K +), cost effective, efficient and a perfect fit for two people also workable for larger parties. Much more versatile/economical alternative than hotel + rental car + rest meals option (rental cost is same as 2 1/2 star hotel room charge, cooked meals are a quarter of same ordinary restaurant meals). Furthermore, full-frame Chevy is safer than a similar vehicle without a frame.
Just bring your personal items and go. Everything you need for for camping or trips is provided at no extra charge.

Meet your host, Thanh

I built this van as my hobby after retiring from 35 years of automotive engineering. Originally bought to save on my hotel bills when taking my daughter to out of town, regional soccer tournaments, spent 2 years to fix all mechanical issues and gradually converted to a self-contained camper van to make my van-stay more comfortable. While waiting for the kid to grow up so I can travel full-time, I thought I could share the van with others who don't have either the time or the inclination to build their own vans; however, want the convenience and amenities of newer vans for camping, but DO NOT want to spend a boat load of money for renting new vans. This van was built to fill your and my needs because I believe it's unnecessary to spend a lot of money to have fun camping or road tripping.

Can’t say enough great things about Tanh. He did a great job explaining each function and everything worked as demo’d. We’d rent again in a heartbeat thanks for your hospitality!

We had a GREAT experience in Thanh's van. The van was in great condition and had all the amenities that we needed for the 3 nights we spent camping in the Oregon state parks. Thanh was very accommodating with our schedule for pick up/drop off; he is a great guy!

Thanh’s van was perfect for our weekend adventure. It had everything we needed, plus some great extras like a DVD player and movies that appealed to our toddler. Thanh did an excellent job going over all the features of the van at pickup. We would definitely rent it again for another trip.

We had a great trip around the Olympic Peninsula in the van. Everything worked as expected, even during the historic heatwave! Thanh was super-helpful and responsive.
