Recommendations

Take it anywhere! Great at campsites, hiking etc. It’s a super stealthy vehicle that just looks like a work truck from the outside so you can sleep at rest stops or parking lots if you get tired on the way and need to pull over.

Other things to note

This van is homemade and an older vehicle, so it does have some quirks :) I've lived in it for multiple months so it definitely will suit for your journey and has most of what you'll need (except a toilet).

The biggest quirk: there is a slight leak in the roof above the driver’s seat. The result is that sometimes if you are driving in heavy rain, you can get some water that comes in either directly above the driver’s side door or between the driver and passenger from the roof. It’s a very small leak but if you’re driving through a lot of rain, then the moisture can add up and be annoying. I will leave you a towel up front you can use in case you run into this issue. There is no leak behind the driver and passenger seat, so you wouldn’t have to worry about water dripping on you sleeping or anything like that.

Meet your host, Sam

Hi, I'm Sam. During the COVID pandemic I built my first camper van (converted a Chevy Express 2500 myself) and traveled all around the country in it for several months. I recently started a new job in Seattle, in-person, meaning I couldn't travel full-time and work remotely anymore. That's why I decided to rent out my van.

Sam's van has everything you'll need if you're going on a weekend trip that's not rainy! It definitely has character and will need some time to get used to, no matter how experienced you are.

The van was great. It does have its quirks so you just have to treat it right. If you drive carefully and never go above 60/65 mph this van can do wonders for you. It was an awesome trip. Sam was a great host and checked in on us while on the trip. If you’re looking to just be around the parks and be able to not worry about leaving and finding a place to sleep, this van is really great. The bed was comfy and Sam had a lot of gear to help you have a comfortable trip. All in all if you’re renting this van, drive carefully and you’ll have a great trip. Thank to Sam for letting us use his rig!

The Dodge van was the perfect vehicle for a few days around Olympic National Park. It is a little older and with a few dents and scratches on the exterior it gave us the perfect 'Seattle vibe' to travel around the Pacific Northwest - the advertised "stealth mode" played out nicely and we were able to pull over on road shoulders or parking lots to take a quick nap. The van drives smoothly and has enough power to handle steeper inclines (something that older Westphalias sometimes struggle with by comparison). The brakes were satisfactory even though Sam makes a point to keep a safe distance from the traffic ahead of you. The gas mileage was ~ 15 mpg for us. The van has a pretty comfortable sleeping area (memory foam layer on top of a futon). There was a bit of 'upward sloping' of the mattress toward the passenger side (where the storage cabinets are) but we counteracted that with strategic parking, taking advantage of uneven campsites. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots plates, silverware (plus extra disposable items), a gas-powered camping stove, a pull-out sink (!), water for that sink and an excellent fridge which is powered through a secondary battery that gets recharged from the alternator (but doesn't drain the main battery). With that set-up we were able to fry steaks, salmon, eggs and veggies with no problem.
'Offline-electricity' from that second battery would recharge our phones and go-pro batteries smoothly (there was a capacity monitor for the secondary battery that we sporadically checked, but even with the ceiling fan and the fridge on as well as recharging a few batteries overnight, the charge level never went below 92 %). Our main objectives were scuba diving, trail hiking and beach combing in the area and we showed up with three suitcases full of gear which was no problem to stow just behind the driver's seat area (we would pull them out on campsites though for easier access to the bed).
Sam's 'bi-modal' set-up in which you convert the sleeping quarters into a work area with a seating bench/table combo is kind of neat but we did not take advantage of that as we were driving or visiting the outdoors every day.
Sam was super easy to work with (we texted back and forth a couple of times with pretty much 'instant feedback' from his end). Sam also set up a written manual/tutorial in google docs as well.
Bottom line: The van was exactly what we wanted for the area the host (Sam) was super nice and we were lucky to hit the area two days AFTER that monster heat wave!

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
A.
Unfortunately at this time I'm not offering vehicle delivery.

Q.How do the electric, water and sewage hook up work while setting up at the campground?
A.
There is no electric hookup. The electrical system (200Ah batteries) is charged by (a) the car alternator when the car engine is running, and (b) the solar panels on the roof. Water: there is a 24 gallon water tank in the back underneath the cabinets; this is a big water tank! Enough for several days worth of water. There is a hose that is wound up when you open the back door. To fill up, just take the hose out and plug into any standard garden-hose hookup. No sewer hookup (no toilet).
