Fun and Adventure Await you in Phat

If you are looking for a camper van with all the latest amenities to support your dream adventures, look no further! Phat Mobile Adventures is here for you. This build was recently completed using extremely high quality products, and Phat’s owner has lovingly crafted every feature inside this dream mobile with form AND function as his guiding principle.

A dining table and bench seating will beckon all who walk by, particularly if you’ve got the back doors open to enjoy the view. Come nighttime, you’ll sleep soundly on the nearly king-sized bed by converting the benches and dining table into a sleeping paradise.

If you are traveling with friends who need a place to crash (!), you can have a sleepover by attaching a wrap-around tent to the awning (tent and awning not pictured) and blowing up the queen-sized air mattress, which can be included on request at no extra charge. Your “guest room” if you are parked and staying awhile is super cool. The ARB awning is the deluxe, heavy duty version (about 8×8 feet) and it literally doubles your space, creating an entire room with zipper access floor to roof. Alternatively you could use the bug nets instead of the canvas and create a “porch” rather than a room. (Wrap around tent available only to renters who will be joined by friends traveling in a separate vehicle.)

In the morning, enjoy a cup of delicious coffee brewed with Phat’s fancy coffee machine. Cook inside or outside the van on the Coleman 2-burner stove, and stand up tall and proud when you do! The high top on Phat means folks 5’11” and under can comfortably stand inside the van throughout. The kitchen area includes a stainless steel sink (20-gallon fresh, 6-gallon gray water tanks with Whale pedal-operated pump) and refrigerator to keep your items cold.

And there is tons of storage space in Phat so bring all your toys! There is also a ladder for accessing items stored on the roof. Speaking of items stored on the roof, we’ve got several optional add-ons: longboard, surf board, paddle board, bikes and bike rack. Everything you need for an awesome adventure in Phat! And that roof rack has solar panels as well as some awesome flood lights, so when you are venturing down paths less travelled you’ll be able to light the way.

And finally, see below for a few details regarding Phat’s Electrical Systems. You’ll be plugged in, wired, and charged up!

Book Your Trip

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.



Insurance coverage includes $1 million in liability to the renter, $1 million in liability to the van owner, and comp and collision coverage up to $125,000. Coverage costs $32.50/day and is required as part of the rental.

Roadside Assistance

We make 24-hour roadside assistance available for $15 a day. Coverage includes unlimited: towing, flat tire assistance, emergency fluids delivery, battery boost, and a mobile mechanic. Many van owners require 24-hour roadside assistance as part of the rental. Where coverage is mandatory, you must either purchase our policy, or show proof of comparable coverage (such as AAA PLUS or PREMIER).


125 miles per day is included in every rental. Additional miles are charged at 35 cents per mile. For example, on a four-night rental, you will have 500 free miles. If you traveled 600 miles, you would pay an additional $35 at the end of your trip.

Security Deposit

You’ll pay a security deposit of $1,000 - $1500 (vehicle dependent) two days before your rental starts. The security deposit is returned, less any additional fees, usually no more than 7 days after you return.
