“I wish I'd built a custom space for my surf board before finalizing our van build... in retrospect you really won't know what you need and want until you get in a van and start brainstorming. Do you want a propane burner or induction cooktop in the kitchen? A stationary bed or one that you make every night? Is heat essential or do you think you can do without? It's too big an investment not to do a lot of homework before buying!”Eric van owner (RJ)
Modern Metris: This Mercedes-Benz Metris seats and sleeps four with all the style and cool factor of the classic VW, but it's been updated for the modern era. Go ahead, pop the top!

“Buying a van is expensive and can feel like a big commitment. But after I rented one I was absolutely sure I wanted my own. Now I'm the proud owner of a Eurovan Camper and I of course listed my van on the GoCamp website. She'll be paid off in two years!”Audra van owner (The Nest)
Once you've sampled the sweetness of van life as a renter, you can work directly with an outfitter to fulfill your custom camper van ownership dreams.
And then, might we suggest you list your van on the GoCamp website and share it with others! Renting is a great way to offset some of the costs of ownership. Too soon? 😉
