Hi, I am Mark Daisy
The "CoolBus" is a 2016 Ram Promaster 2500 that has been converted into your epic road trip home on wheels. We built this with our own hands, starting from a completely empty shell, to what you see today... all with a "minimalist" living mentality to make it feel like a tiny home! We love this thing. We know you will also:) We're based out of Traverse City, MI!
We had a wonderful trip to the UP in the Cool Bus + Mark was super knowledgeable and helpful with any questions.
We had a wonderful experience renting this camper van. Mark is very easy to work with: friendly, flexible, and accommodating. The van is designed with a simple elegance that combines efficient use of space with comfortable, homey touches. Highly recommend.
North coast vans & Mark & Erin were amazing van hosts!! The van was beautiful and clean when we picked it up, & was stocked with all things you could ever need! We had a great time and would love to do it again!
The owners were terrific to work with. The van had everything we needed for our week trip in the UP in Michigan. We had plenty of room for my husband , myself and our dog.
Having the refrigerator in the van was great. With the solar panels we never ran out of power. Front seats were comfy to ride in on a long drive.
Amazing van, awesome owners and an overall great experience. It's evident that Mark takes a lot of pride in his van and the stellar build-out. He was super helpful and responsive as a host. The pick-up/drop-off was convenient and easy. The van itself is comfortable, bright, roomy and has everything necessary for a "camping" experience. Highly recommended.
Literally a perfect set up and a couple committed to delivering a world class experience. Can’t say enough about Mark and Erin. Tremendously gracious, radically smart, and went above the call of duty (read accepted and delivered a fed ex containing important documents because they care. Karma smiles on these two and “the Cool Van”. You’d be dumb not to book with them. We wish them well.
Perfect for an adventure for two! I surprised my husband with a night away at a campsite on the shores of Lake Michigan in this van. We loved it! It was super clean, easy to travel in and so comfortable. We loved how simple everything was. Owners were so friendly and helpful to coordinate with. We would definitely rent this again and refer it to friends.
