Where do you want to go? Van Diesel can get you there in comfort and style. This van is equipped for your next camp outing or trip to the dunes. It has a few comfort amenities as well as plenty of secure storage space for food, clothes or even your dirtbike inside the van. You can also take advantage of Van Diesel’s towing ability and bring a trailer on your next adventure. You will have no problem finding your camp spot with the LED light bars.

Van Diesel is great for all times of the year. During winter months use the built in diesel space heater which will turn the van into a sauna within minutes.

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.
