Live Big and Bold with RJ
RJ is an exquisite 2018 Dodge Ram ProMaster that has one goal: help you look back on a life well-lived. This custom build was completed by a talented team of craftspeople, with each bringing their absolute best to the job. Fitting, because RJ is named for the owner’s exacting father, Robert Joseph, a man who had super high standards, loved his time outdoors, and was always planning the next adventure or family get together.
RJ seats and sleeps two on a comfortable queen size bed. An extra extension allows for another 6 inches of sleeping space. Storage underneath the bed and cabinetry throughout means you’ll have plenty of space for your gear and toys.
And this beautiful van is its own virtual forest, with a mix of Parota, Maple, Oak and Alder wood used throughout. The kitchen boasts a two burner stove, sink and Dometic refrigerator. A table slides in and out from underneath the bed, while the front passenger seat swivels so that two can eat comfortably in the van. Camp chairs, a camp table, headlamps, lanterns, and all the camping gear you could possibly need are also included, so eating outside the van is always an option too.
RJ was built by the professional team at Vannetic, in San Diego. As more and more people are interested in working with professional outfitters to make their #vanlife dreams come true, the notion of a renting a van to test out various features and designs is increasingly popular.
This is a perfect “try before you buy” van, and also one that will leave you with no regrets.

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.

Updated as of March 2020. In light of concerns related to traveling during the novel coronavirus outbreak, we are waiving all cancellation and change fees. Whether you can cancel or change your camper van trip if you need to is something you can take off your worry list. We hope this situation ends soon, and we also hope you are able to get a break from it all in a camper van.
We will revert to our standard cancellation policy at a later time.
