Hi there! We're Emily and Sam. We met teaching at a small school in Maine, traveled together through Europe and Morocco, and then got our van, Suzanne! We have taken some wonderful trips with her, and are thrilled that we can now help others get out on their own vanlife adventures.

Emily was great to work with. We had one issue and she made sure to call and make sure we got it figured out. The van needs new tires badly, also new wiper blades would be appreciated. Overall the van was easy to drive and did well in tight spaces. It was stocked with everything we needed and made for a great home for the week

We offer 100 free miles per day to fuel your adventure. Beyond that, there is a mileage fee of $0.20 per mile.

Before your trip, we note the mileage of the van. At the end of your rental, we record the final mileage to calculate the total miles driven and the associated charges.

The van is conveniently located approximately 4.2 miles from Portland, Maine airport and about 5 miles from the train and bus station. This makes it easily accessible for your arrival and departure convenience. We recommend taking an Uber, Lyft, or taxi from the airport or bus station to the van for a hassle-free and convenient transfer.

We recommend mapping your trip and calculating the estimated number of miles you plan to travel. Multiply the excess miles by the mileage fee of $0.20 to determine the additional cost.
