My wife and I converted this Chevy van into a camper in the summer of 2020 and drove it from Florida to Maine and then Utah. We love the van as it's easy to drive and great for stealth camping. You'll love it too! We call it Big Boda, with "Boda" being the name of the local taxis when we lived in Africa.
It has a brand new transmission, brakes, tires, and battery, as well as cold A/C.
Touch screen stereo with bluetooth and maps, backup camera, and alarm. Camper additions include interior lighting, 2 way roof fan, portable fan, solar panel, solar-battery powered electrical outlet & USB jacks, with additional electrical outlets on engine-powered inverter, spacious storage with pullout drawers, shelving, and cargo space.
Nice queen bed that extends to 76 inches long, with a bamboo mattress topper to make the bed soft and cool at night. Also includes linens and pillows.
Includes toilet (can be moved), bamboo sink, and lighted vanity mirror to make shaving/makeup easier.
A 70 quart cooler keeps ice for up to 3 days and can also be used for camping.
A solar heated shower bag allows for showers outside. Simply hang it on the van's roof rack or a tree branch and use the hose. The sun heats the water quickly or you can heat some water on the gas stovetop and add it to the shower bag.
Includes fresh bed linens, 2 pillows, paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, hand soap, and 5 gallons of fresh water.

Other things to note
No large dogs or smoking or vaping in the van. No cooking with the propane burner in the van (due to fire hazard).
Small to medium dogs or cats are allowed but may require a small additional cleaning fee if there's a substantial amount of per hair to remove afterwards.
If your roundtrip will average more than 200 miles a day (example: 1200 miles over 3 days), then please ask us about the pricing as it may be different than what's listed. This is because high miles for a short rental can be costly for us with maintenance and repairs. Of course, when you rent more than a few days this usually isn't an issue, so it pays to vacation longer! :-)
