Vincent Van Gogh is a hardy 2009 Ford E250 #vanlife camper van. This van is a perfect low-maintenance rugged rig that will get you across the country and back. If you are interested in the #vanlife and want to see what it's like, this is the rig for you. Vincent features a full-size futon bed with under-bed storage. The mattress was bought new just for renters like yourself. The futon can be kept in the bed position or raised to a seated position for casual relaxation. Vincent has 200W of solar on the roof that powers a 576Wh Ecoflow River Max portable power station. This battery can run laptops, smartphones, cameras, electric coolers, and any other digital accessory you want to bring. It has USB, DC, and AC (US wall) adapters. Vincent has an electric roof vent in the middle of the unit with three speeds, powered by the solar battery. Vincent has a passenger-side swivel seat. Simply unplug the airbag and you can spin the seat 360 degrees in any direction. Great for relaxing in the cabin. Just remember to straighten it out and plug the airbag back in before departing! Vincent is a low-top. You may see this as a disadvantage, but you'd be wrong. High tops rattle and shake when driving in windy areas. Low tops don't. Low tops can also be parked in city garages with low clearance, making it possible to visit urban areas. The best part: Vincent gets 15mpg to 20mpg. You won't spend an arm and a leg on gas driving this great rig around. If you're looking for an introduction to classic #vanlife or a budget trip across the country, Vincent is the van for you.

What's included

1. 200W roof-mounted solar and 576Wh solar battery
2. Full-size futon mattress
3. Fresh sheets
4. Zero-degree large sleeping bag
5. Camp cooking equipment
6. Four bottles of propane
7. Two camping chairs
8. Emergency repair kit (heavyweight tire jack, spare tire, etc)

Recommendations

If you are looking for somewhere within reasonable driving distance, I would recommend these locations:

1. Mt. Mitchell and the smoky mountains (8-hour drive)
2. New Jersey beaches (And NYC if you like that sort of thing) (8-hour drive)
3. Hocking Hills (1-hour drive)
4. Sleeping Bear Dunes (7 hours)
5. Niagara Falls (6 hours)

Other things to note

The wood veneer is peeling and bubbling in some places, as you can see in the photos. This damage is cosmetic only.

Cigarette smoke is allowed as long as you open windows or doors and run the roof van for good ventilation. What I don't want is stagnant cigarette smoke baking into the walls, that's all (:

420 friendly.

When you receive the van, it will have a full tank of gas. Please return with a full tank of gas. If you do not return Vincent with a full tank of gas, I will charge you the price of gas at the pump to fill the van up, plus a $20 service fee.

Vincent is dog-friendly but there may be an additional cleaning fee of $35 for people who bring dogs along if your dog sheds a lot or leaves a strong smell in the van.

If you get any tickets, unpaid tolls, moving violations, or anything similar, and the charges are held against me since it is my plate number, I will contact the states issuing the violations to have them charged against you, AND I will charge a $100 fee for having to do so. Please remember to bring roughly $20 in quarters for tolls to avoid this if you plan on visiting PA, NJ, or any other state with tolls.

Sam Holstein first got interested in #vanlife back in 2016. After doing some research, they decided to buy their first camper van in 2018. Their favorite type of vans are self-contained rigs capable of going off-grid for weeks at a time. They are looking forward to giving other people the opportunity to experience #vanlife without having to buy and convert their own van.

Van was as described, pick up and drop off were very easy. My husband and I were wanting to test out the van life. We did a two night camping trip with a lot of rain. We stayed dry and had a wonderful time! We would rent this van again in the future.

The camper was perfect for the camping trip I took in the woods with no water or electricity. Thanks to the solar generator, the fan in the roof made sleeping very comfortable and I was able to charge my cell phone! The van took all the bumps and ruts getting into the site. The storage was nice to have, and I made use of the chairs that were provided. I had not camped in a long time, and it was so nice to not be on the ground in a tent. The double futon-type bed was great! Sam, the owner, was more than helpful as I had never rented an RV before. She answered all my questions and was very timely in her replies. I came home early from my trip and Sam was able to adjust the rental, which I truly appreciated. I would highly recommend renting Vincent Van Gogh! P.S. - I did 4 stars on how clean it was. The camper section was very clean, great linens. The driving console looked like it may not have been missed during cleaned from the last trip. I cleaned it and moved on.

We needed a last minute solution for our camping adventure and were so excited to find Sam’s listing! They were quick to respond, and the van was exactly as advertised. We would definitely do #vanlife again. Happy trails!

Sam's van was perfect for what we needed. Basic accommodations give you more comfort than camping but the ease of being on the road. Got about 15 miles per gallon, tank is about 32 gallons or so. Van is easy and comfortable to drive, AC works perfectly. The battery had plenty of charge at night to run the lights, fan, and charge our phones. If you're thinking about renting from Sam, do it! You won't regret it!

Have a question?Get answers directly from the owner

Q.How does the swivel seat work?
A.
Vincent comes with a passenger-side swivel seat. You can use the swivel seat by disconnecting the airbag plug that is in front, then grasping the swivel seat's lever and pulling up to free the seat. Once this is done, you can turn the passenger seat a full 360 degrees so it can be used as a cabin seat for relaxing.

Q.What does the "Strobe Light" switch do?
A.
This switch is connected to nothing! It's a fun leftover from the previous owners.
