About this RV

Chalky is a "young at heart" '98 Dodge Ram Van. Don't let her age fool you. With a freshly rebuilt engine she's ready to take you on any adventure! Everything is custom built, with a Queen-Sized bed (plus a little extra), sink, 2 burner stove, oven, ventilation, and propane heater. Tons of storage space underneath for all of your adventure gear, including a 65L Yeti cooler to make sure you don't head into those adventures hungry.

Interior is all custom wood paneled, and with multiple lighting options, Chalky is here to set any mood you're looking for. Solar-Powered Inverter with standard outlet to keep your devices humming, and a top of the line bluetooth stereo (including subwoofer) to keep you moving. Backup cam and dash cam will give you peace of mind on the road so you can just focus on the adventures ahead!

We also offer different custom packages depending on the type of trip you're looking for! Going camping? We've "got the gear!" (Portlandia anyone?) S'mores? Done? Craving a wilderness movie night? We'll throw in a mini projector. Romance on your mind? We'll make sure you're all set with battery-powered candles, and just enough wine to keep things interesting. Just let us know what you're looking for and we'll do our best to make your next adventure all you want it to be.

So sad we weren’t able to host Taylor! Van ended up having some mechanical issues that needed to be addressed. Fortunately we were able to get a full-refund issued and give her plenty of time to find a replacement.

This van will take you anywhere you want to go! With a queen sized bed to comfortably fit two and a solar panel electric system (separate from the engine’s electrical) powerful enough to power a cpap machine, it provides a close-and-comfy space to get out of the elements in the desert or mountains.

Thanks Lori! So honored you chose us! So glad you were comfortable! We have to agree with you on the bed. It’s our favorite part ourselves!

Dylan was an awesome custodian of Chalky. The van was clean and well maintained and it was a ton of fun to take up on the long trip up to Morro Bay State Park. Highly Recommend!

Glad you had a great trip! Never forget the Fish n’ Chips! We’d love to host you again!

Had an amazing time with our pups in Joshua Tree with Chalky! Kept us safe and warm from the 22mph winds that were blowing upon our arrival. Had a little issue with the sink (slight malfunction with the button to turn it on), however, aside from that, Chalky drove great, and had ample room for two humans and two dogs. Would definitely rent from Dylan again and take Chalky out for another adventure!

Chalky was the perfect chariot for our coastal excursion. Wonderfully customized by Dylan, everything worked as advertised and was as comfortable and convenient as can be. Dylan's a great guy, too. Really on top of communication and making sure we had everything we needed for our trip. This baby will turn some heads for sure; you will not drive longer than 10 minutes before someone leans out of their car and yells, "RAD, BRUH." A unique and fun adventure with Chalky!
