Go Shorty, Go Far
Shorty is a small but mighty Ford E150 camper van. A van like this is a great way to try the vanlife for the first time. Its simple, yet functional design makes camping easy. Plus, its small, nimble design makes driving and parking a breeze.
The comfy bucket seats, Bluetooth radio, backup camera, and keyless power lock, make Shorty perfect for a long-distance trip. Not to mention it has cruise control and gets 12-19 mpg on most roads.
Get some shut-eye after a long day of adventuring in the queen-sized bed that can sleep up to three people. And when you’re not getting in some zzz’s, the bed converts into a dining area with plenty of room for the entire crew. Cook inside or out using the portable dual-burner gas stove provided.
With a state-of-the-art 288WH 1200W Ecoflow River power station, you’ll be able to charge all of your devices, including your laptop, cell phone, or even a small projector. The portable battery system recharges using the van’s engine, which only takes an hour and a half to charge from empty to full. So, just turn on the van or go for a drive when you need more juice!
Even with its small size, Shorty has plenty of storage space too. Store small items like clothes and toiletries under the bed or in the four drawers under the counter. And if you need more storage space, add an extra cargo box that attaches to the hitch.
Travel far in Shorty.
This van is located in Silver Spring, Maryland about 35 miles southwest of Baltimore-Washington Airport (BWI), 15 miles north of Ronald Reagan Airport (DCI), and 31 miles east of Dulles International Airport (IAD).

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.
