CARMEN THE BOHO VAN — AS SEEN ON SHARK TANK
Carmen is your mini retreat for wherever you choose to wander! Cruise in comfort and style. Her cedar wrapped interior will make you feel like you’re staying in a cozy off-grid cabin.
Carmen is fully equipped with a mini kitchen, an outdoor shower, and a dining nook with a slide out table for face-to-face dining. The dining area converts to a bed for a third passenger.
Note that all three passengers ride up front! That means everyone has a great view while on the move, but it also means that Carmen can only accommodate adult passengers (or big kids). Small children should not ride in this van.
Stow your gear in the spacious storage area under the platform bed. You’ll be thankful to sink into the memory foam platform bed after a long day of adventuring.
A house battery bank runs all her systems through the power of roof-mounted solar panels, a DC-DC charging system that powers her batteries on the move, and a shore power hookup to give the batteries a full charge when needed. Heat and AC operate while driving, just like a regular car.
This off-grid power runs her systems inside the van including a dual zone fridge, 12V roof fan, a water pump to pressurize 25 gallons of fresh water to the indoor sink and outdoor shower, interior LED lighting and outlets to run your favorite gadgets.
NOTE: This van’s build is scheduled to be completed May 2021. Photos are of a similar van by the same builder, Boho Camper Vans. (Renting Carmen is a great way to try out a Boho Camper Van build, if you’re thinking of buying one!)

Pick Up and Drop Off
Rentals are Calculated on a 24-hour Basis: The rental period is generally considered to be 24 hours. If you pick up the van at 10 am, you’ll be expected to return it around 10 am. Most van owners can accommodate requests for a few extra hours at $20/hour. Alternatively, if you want to pick up in the morning and drop off in the evening, simply select the optional half day add-on when completing your reservation.
Pick Up and Drop Off Time: There is no set pick up and drop off time. You’ll make arrangements suited to your needs and schedule with the van’s owner. You can indicate your preferred pick up and drop off time when completing your reservation; final arrangements will be confirmed with the van’s owner.

You can reschedule your reservation without penalty. You can cancel the vehicle for a full refund, less a 5% service fee, up to 14 days prior to the rental. If you cancel less than 14 days prior to the rental, you will receive a refund for 50% of the rental fee. Cancellations must be made in writing.
We are unable to offer refunds for shortened trips if for some reason (e.g. weather, change in schedule) you return the vehicle early. See also our COVID-19 policies.
