Everything you need in under 20 feet! Get into those hard-to-get RV sites with a comfortable but compact van. Fully loaded and everything works great! We comfortably fit 2 adults, 2 teens and 2 dogs in this awesome ride on a great adventure to Yellowstone.This van comes with a full kitchen (but compact) including fridge, microwave, toaster over, stove, sink, coffee. I prefer to set up a camping stove outside so I can enjoy the fresh air while I cook, but there is the inside stove for rainy nights. I have also built a pop-up cutting board/table which comes in very handy.As for the sleeping arrangements, I am 6'1" and completely comfortable on the main bed (that gets converted down from the dining table and benches. The overhead bed is great for 2 kids (or 1 15yr old who likes her space). I also built a small bunk for a child under 125lbs. My youngest child loves it and spends all of her time up there. At night, we put the dog beds on the drivers and passenger seats and they seem to be perfectly happy there all night long. It really works out and seems much larger than a van once you get into it.

Charlie was exactly as described! The van fit our family of 3 perfectly for our 6 day trip to Yosemite and Sequoia. Clay was very helpful and responsive to messages. We had a great time with Charlie and would definitely recommend to other families!

Great trip with a reliable van. No mechanical or operational issues the entire trip, strong engine, handled mountain roads no problem. The only small issue is that the water pump is relatively loud which can be disruptive in a quiet campground when using water, but it's not really a big deal. The power inverter is great, making it possible to charge phones and whatnot when camped in a location without power hookups.
