You'll find value with Maine Van Life: *Free Bike add-on package with all 5 night rentals. $150 value and you'll enjoy some of the most scenic bike trails in the Northeast. Acadia National Park's historic carriage trails are spectacular. *Free Paddleboard add-on package with all five night rentals. $100 value and you'll enjoy Acadia National Park from a different side - the water. *Free for ALL rentals - use of Campnab to potentially find a campsite in fully sold-out Acadia National Park campgrounds. Campnab will frequently scan reservations and send me a text if there is a cancellation, giving me a head start to possibly secure a campsite for you. If a site gets booked, you'll pay for staying in the site, but I will take care of finding it and reserving it for you. It's an easy, hassle free way to increase the likelihood you’ll receive a reservation in Acadia campgrounds that look full. I’ve lived in Maine my whole life and would like to thank you for letting me share my passions with you - Maine, camping & the great outdoors. As both your rental car and tent, MVL1 offers a smooth ride, easy driving and lots of storage. Pull into your campsite, bring out the chairs and cook s’mores by the campfire. A great night sleeping awaits you on the queen size memory foam bed, keep your phone charged with solar power and be ready to Instagram your next adventure. Imagine a week in the woods camping without any hassles. No more packing up a soggy tent, no more stressing about sleeping in the rain and no more setting up camp in the dark. Features: -Bangor International Airport service (see add-ons. Due to teaching hours, in September and October, this service will be conducted contactless during the weekday, if your flight lands / departs before 3pm. After 3pm or on the weekends, I can do it in person). -two Raliegh 21 speed mountain bikes, helmets and locks to rent (see add-ons). -two inflatible paddle boards, life jackets and power air pump (see add-ons).

Big win for Maine Van Life .. Luke is our son and his van had a few days between rentals so we conceded our life long primitive camping adventures to the luxury of a queen matress, comfy bedding and a no need to pack anything for two 40 degree nites in in the Western Maine Mountains.

Luke’s answer

Thanks Old Man! Glad you enjoyed the van - family discount next time you rent!

Such an amazing experience! The van is so thoughtfully designed, Luke was incredibly friendly and helped point us toward some really gems, and the process was seamless. Loved it so much we'll be repping the Maine Van Life sweatshirts!

Luke’s answer

If I could put more than 5 stars I would. The van was awesome!! I particularly appreciate the attention to detail Luke put in to making this a completely comfortable van camp. Everything was easy to use and well thought out by someone who obviously knows what’s needed to make camp great. And Luke was very helpful with some tips on where to go around town and what to check out. I’m definitely going to reach out to rent this again next time I come to the area. Thank you Luke for making our trip so fun and easy!!

From pick up to drop off, our experience could not have gone more smoothly! Luke has meticulously thought of everything and his van has been a passion project that we’re happy he’s willing to share. Van life for the win!

Have a question?Get answers directly from the owner

Q.Is the bed comfortable?
A.
YES! It's a regular queen memory foam mattress, 60" wide X 80" long. Couple that with freshly washed L.L. Bean linens and you'll be snoring in under five minutes!

Q.What's the bathroom situation?
A.
Unfortunately, right now there is no bathroom. I urge campers, skiers and explorers to pre plan parking spots to be near a bathroom at bedtime or wake-up.

Q.Can I get some Maine Van Life swag?
A.
Of course! Ask me about some stickers on hand and sweatshirts to order!

Q.Are pets allowed?
A.
At this time, after a fresh build, pets are not allowed in MVL1. This is subject to change!
