Great van and great ride. We used it to go glamping and camping throughout Thanksgiving holiday week. It was great to hang out with family and still have our own secluded space when we needed a rest from the family.

Professional and thorough, start to finish. He took 2 hours to go over everything prior to departure. I had to take notes! He built his so he knows it and loves just like my wife who was new to camping did. We took it for a month and didn't want to give it back.
