The Andromeda galaxy is the most distant object in the sky that you can see with your eye — but only on a clear night from a location with a very dark sky. Andromeda the van, a 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, will take you to the most remote corners for your own private viewing experience.
The standard configuration in this van is a single queen loft bed with a generous amount of storage underneath (for kayaks, mtn bikes, etc…). Andromeda includes a Dometic 12V cooler which runs off a secondary auxiliary battery 24/7, a small pump sink, dishes & cookware, and a butane stove (for cooking under the stars). There are also privacy curtains and bug nets to keep you cool in warmer weather, and a thermostat controlled diesel powered heater for colder months.
This van seats up to eight (!) and sleeps four. Bedding for four is included. Add a tent and sleeping bags to your reservation if you need extra sleeping space for all your passengers. (This van is generally prepped for four passengers. Andromeda may be converted to carry up to 8 passengers and sleep up to 4, however the sink must be removed for any passengers greater than 5. Please note that for greater than 5 passengers extra charges ($150) will apply as the conversion is a time consuming task.)
In addition to the permanent queen bed, there is a bench seat for 3 behind the 2 front seats. There is approximately (6′ or so) between the bench seat and the bed. Plenty of space to fill with everything (and everyone) you need to make your adventuring dreams come to life!

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 cancel the vehicle for a full refund, less a 5% service fee, up to 30 days prior to the rental. If you cancel with less than 30 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. GoCamp reserves the right to cancel a reservation at our discretion if we feel that the rental would not be safe (e.g. a renter shows up intoxicated, a hurricane is expected along the coast and you are determined to go surfing, etc.). If GoCamp cancels the rental you will receive a full refund.
