Keep the Dream Alive with Beastie
If #vanlife has been a dream of yours, look no further than Beastie. This 2018 Dodge ProMaster camper van is an exquisite custom build. What started as an empty cargo van is now a luxurious and comfortable house on wheels. See also Beastie’s friend 50 Cent, both vans are built with the same attention to detail.
The house is built on a 2018 Ram Promaster 136″ wheelbase high roof van. And the roof is indeed high; even a 6’2″ person can stand up in the van! The passenger seat swivels for added seating in the living area, and the main bench provides great seating for two. The bench seat also has a flip top for additional storage. When it is time for breakfast or dinner, a table pulls out from under the bed so two people can dine or work side by side.
The bed is super comfortable with a six inch memory foam mattress. And underneath, there is a huge garage area with room for all your gear and toys, including bikes. The kitchen is divine, with a 54 Liter 12v fridge that will keep all of your food and drinks icy cold throughout your entire trip. With upper cabinets stretching from the driver seat all the way to the rear of the van there is ample storage for dry food and really anything you can imagine needing on your trip. For cooking we’ll provide a Coleman stove and two tanks of propane (please only cook outside the van). And there is a massive 28 gallon fresh water tank connected to an outdoor shower and a stainless steel kitchen sink with a 20 gallon grey tank.
USB plugs throughout the van will keep your devices charged, and 8 LED lights are connected to a dimmer in case you want a low light for reading or just to set the mood. Almost everything in the interior is run off a low voltage battery sipping 12 volt system. There are 2-110v plugs connected to a fully automatic 2,000 Watt inverter so if you need to charge your laptop or want to plug in something that needs a little more juice. The walls and ceiling are double insulated to keep the van temperate in the summer time, warm in the winter, and the noise out at all times of year. A Maxxair fan can pump hot air out, or when the sun sets you can bring the cool air in.
Beastie is the perfect choice if you are a little intimidated by the big bulky motorhomes, but don’t want to deal with the hassle of setting up a tent.

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.
