While she may not be fancy on the inside, she's powerful, reliable, and FUN! This van is the perfect 'home base' for your outdoor Island adventure. The extended cab means there is lots of cozy indoor space, a big comfortable bed that converts into 2 bench seats, and tons of storage. Plus, all of the windows make her remarkably easy to drive. Wake up to the beauty of the woods or with ocean views all around you! Convenient pick-up in Downtown Victoria. There is a parking spot available for you to leave your car while you travel. This rig gives you everything you need for an elevated camping experience.**Please Note: I typically need 72-hours notice for any new booking. Last minute bookings may not be able to be accommodated.

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
Renter must pick up the van in Victoria. Dedicated parking spot available for renter's vehicle in my driveway, if needed. Sorry, delivery not available at this time.

Q.Is the van pet friendly?
Yes, the van is pet-friendly but pets are subject to approval. Please note that a maximum of 2 furry friends are allowed and a $50 additional cleaning fee will be applied for each pet. This fee is to cover the additional time required to deep clean the van to remove all fur. (Believe me, it gets everywhere! And I want to provide a pleasant, pet-free experience for those traveling without their furry friends.)
