Update:
Our van is in this season of Law & Order! LOL! Check it out in S23 E03 “Filtered Life” :)

‘Delta Ground' is a passport to parts unknown and off-grid (as well as bunch of well known spots you've got to check out).
She's a 2001 Ford E-350 Super Duty equipped with a powerful 6.8L, v10 Triton engine, which can easily carry two travelers and a ton of gear just about anywhere that doesn't require 4-wheel drive (and even some places that do).

We're making the basic rig available for adventurers on a budget.
But, we also offer lots of add-ons for those that want to spend a little more on camping amenities.

Standard Vehicle Features:
Automatic Transmission, Heat, A/C*, power-everything, radio w/ tape deck

Custom Features Include:
- Mud/Snow tires (in great condition)
- Privacy curtains / tinted cabin windows
- Insulated wood paneling
- Roof rack w/ Solar array (powers fans, LED lights, etc)
- Modified Inverter (+ battery bank): turns solar power into standard 110v so you can plug in most electric household items (phone chargers, laptops, power tools, etc)
- Custom bed: w/ thick and comfy 8" Wayfair mattress in two parts. (2) sleep positions - Full, Split Level. (3) storage drawers and a 4th cubby
- Table (optional): slide to one side or another, or remove.
- Wooden bench seat: more storage space. folds out of the way.
- Carpet: keeps things cozy
- Phone holder / chargers / rear backup camera screen
- Kitchenette w/, spice and utensil rack, (2) 5 gallon water jugs w/ spigots, storage space, and a Mesh divider (keeps bugs out of the living space while cooking).

pillows & blankets (optional)
cookware / dish-ware / utensils
extra lights
lighter
firestarting materials
first aid kit
bug spray
road maps
toilet paper
books
cards & games

Recommendations

Local stuff:
- Our first trip with Delta was to the Ninham Fire Tower at sunrise. Amazing views and hilarious graffiti.
- Kaaterskill Falls
- Lake Onteora

If you're going the distance:
- look for dispersed camping locations and/or BLM areas (Bureau of Land Management) across the country - though they're much more concentrated out west.
- Go boon-docking at 'The Wall' in the South Dakota Badlands. One of the most stunning, freeing spots in the country

Other things to note

Gas:
Delta runs on SUPER PREMIUM GAS ONLY (91-93 octane) - lower octane fuel can damage the engine.

Pets:
We're pet friendly, but experience dictates that we have to charge a cleaning fee. The fee will be $50 per factor.
i.e. licked windows, hair, kibble, persistent odor - would come out to a $200 fee.
But if we can see that you put in effort to clean, yet we still have to - the fee will be cut in half.

Insurance:
NY State is one of the only states in the area that does not allow ride-sharing to be insured by personal auto insurance on the host side - but, as a renter, as long as your personal auto insurance covers rentals you are covered. We just need to see proof of insurance before you book.

Solar:
you can charge a laptop, or run a low wattage fridge for hours, but one of our renters found that running a box fan all night drained the solar battery. But, if you follow our instructions and are mindful of your energy use, you shouldn't run into any problems (unless the sun does not come out at all during your trip).

Hills:
When going down a steep road, please shift to a lower gear (to save the breaks)
This is an automatic, but here's a breakdown:
Drive: totally automatic
Overdrive-Off: (3rd gear) push little button on end of the shifter. for easy downhills. keeps you around 35-45mph (there's a little "off" light when pushed)
2nd gear: for steep downhills. keeps you around 25-35mph
1st gear: for super steep downhills. keeps you around 15-25mph

We recently drove our van across the country and back. It was magical! And we hope we can help facilitate that magic feeling for other folks and maybe even a few adventurous pets :)

We took a two week road trip through NY and VT with our two kitties. The van was roomy and super comfortable. Loved having the roof fan for warmer nights and keeping the van cool even while parked in the sun. And we were so glad we rented the fridge. Rafael was great and always responded quickly.

Rafael made our 4 generation trip above and beyond!! He made the reservation p;process very easy. His van (We nicknamed her "Big Red") was easy to drive for such a big van. The woodworking on the inside is beautiful! Much storage Rafael again!! Great guy!

Rafael was helpful in describing the details in using his camper van. And is a very good communicator. Although the van is an older model, and a bit noisy when running, the inside is clean, and the bed is very comfortable. Overall, I enjoyed the camping experience with the van thoroughly.

This was a great rig, wonderful for touring Vermont state parks. Solar power was awesome, especially with no hookups and a husband with a cpap. Rustic, homemade, and incognito. Perfect for not standing out & looking like a tourist!

Awesome trip!
The vas was great. We drove it through Vermont, Main, NH, and Connecticut without any problem.
The fact the kitchen area is isolated from the bed area by a bug net is really clutch. It really prevent having to chase mosquito in the bedroom.
Raphael is really responsive and helpful.
A nice person to meet.
