Meet L’il Abner, an amazing example of camping from the 1970’s brought back to perfection. Take a trip back in time for your next staycation in this incredibly restored 1979 Dodge Frontier camper van. This blast from the past boasts an authentic era style interior and exterior. With upgrades like new flooring, a stereo and back up camera in combination with new body graphics and paint restoration L’’il Abner flawlessly presents that feel of yesteryear.He sleeps four comfortably in his surprisingly spacious 17 foot cabin. He’s no larger than a sprinter van making him easy to drive and park. Li’l Abner has low miles on his powerful 360 in.³ 5.9 L Chrysler engine. This is the same engine found in the fastest production SUV on the market, the jeep grand Cherokee. Many hours and dollars have been poured into how Li’l Abner performs mechanically and looks aesthetically. He will get you to the campground first and be the best looking Glamper there.Load up your pets. He loves animals. He also loves music and music festivals. He has a remote control Sony stereo with four high output Kenwood speakers. Li’l Abner is also fully equipped with 35 well-thought-out standard coach items along with another 88 kitchen, bath and living items. Everything you’ll need for a fantastic Glamping adventure. You can add firewood, a propane BBQ, chairs and a folding table for that perfect get away.Being in L’il Abner is like being in a retro parade. You’ll get lots of waves and many thumbs up. He’s had much mechanical and aesthetic pampering to ensure he runs as beautifully as he looks from his body styling to batteries, belts, engine, steering and suspension maintenance. You can be proud of him and please treat him as your own. However, no logging or backcountry 4x4 type roads please.I will give you a full and complete understanding of everything Lil Abner has to offer before you begin your journey. You’ll get a full walk-through of all his systems. You’ll be an RV expert.

What's included

Every thing you need from a wine bottle opener to coffee and all the fixings comes with Li’l Abner. A fully stocked kitchen with ornamental plants and flowers in his living and dining area is included. You can add bedding and towels, bundles of firewood, a propane BBQ with chairs and a folding table to complete your adventure.

Other things to note

Enjoy everything Li’l Abner has to offer. He loves pets, festivals and tailgate parties. Please remember no off road terrain, logging roads or 4x4 conditions. And no smoking please.

Well. She's a 70's dodge feels like one, looks like one and runs like one. Our family of 4 had a great trip taking her up to Northern Vancouver Island and back. We all slept very comfortably and enjoyed the classic road trip experience. Kevin is a great Outdoorsy host and his humour, cheerful attitude and easy going nature is a real joy. We had a bit of a delay in getting it back and he was very understanding and helpful. I would highly suggest selecting one of his vans if you want an easygoing experience with no worries.

We had a great time with Lil’ Abner! Kevin had great communication and was super accommodating with our arrival and departure times, and we had everything we needed in the van. Can’t wait to come back next year, thanks Kevin!

We had an incredible experience with Lil Abner! The walk through prior to our trip was thorough and informative. Li'l Abner was clean, sufficiently stocked and well organized, not to mention extremely cute!! Kevin was an awesome host. He was accommodating and communicative. When questions came up during our trip, he responded promptly to our texts and was very helpful. Kevin went above and beyond expectations with prepping the van, and helped make our honeymoon even more special!! 10 stars 🌟 and two fuzzy dice 🎲 🎲!!

This experience was simply incredible from A to Z. First off, Kevin will do everything he can to make sure you have the BEST trip possible. He's super responsive, available and willing to accomodate. You will leave on your trip with Lil Abner knowing every important detail of its functionality. Secondly, Lil Abner is made for the road. We traveled during three weeks and we were able to get to every place we wanted to. Very comfortable and fun to drive. We were four and it is more than doable. In this case, what you see on Outdoorsy is not what you get, its EVEN better with Lil Abner. Thanks again Kevin !! - From your 6 Montrealers

My girlfriend and I loved camping in this RV! Very well maintained and clean, made our journey comfortable and enjoyable. And Kevin has been nothing but amazing from beginning to end. He provides us with all the information and equipments needed and then some! He carries such positive vibe that you can’t help but carry that vibe with you on your trip. He is friendly and very accommodating, made sure that everything was made suitable for us. Thank you for making our trip a memorable one, can’t wait to see you again!
