Who doesn’t love a camper van? It’s an RV without the hassle of an RV. Native Campervans is taking the concept and turning it into a rentable business. Choose between their Biggie, a 2016 Ram ProMaster or the Small, a collection of 2011-2015 Dodge Caravans. And people said minivans weren’t awesome.

Rentals start at $85 for the small and jump to $145 per night for the big. It’s cheaper than traveling to Valhalla with Outside Van. And if you’re skill with power tools ends with you destroying drywall hanging a shelf, maybe the Vanual isn’t the best idea.

Hey, toss me my Adderall, and I’ll take a dryer down to the screws. Apologies to my mom, but at least the door hinge was swapped. And it still worked. That’s a win, right?

Native Campervans Biggie

This is America, so let’s go big first. The Ram ProMaster Biggie sleeps two in complete comfort. Inside the retrofit, the camper van has a complete kitchen with subway tile. We are preparing to remodel our house, and I swear I dream about subway tile. Here are the specs of the kitchen:

  • Sink with Tap & Drain
  • 7 Gallon Water/Waste Tank
  • 2 Burner Stainless Steel Propane Stove
  • Refrigerator/Freezer (Holds up to 60 Cans)
  • Cooking Utensils
  • Cutlery
  • 3 Plates, 3 Bowls & 3 Cups
  • 2 Pots & 1 Frying Pan
  • French Press
  • Pantry Cabinet
  • Trash Can

The bedroom is outfitted with a Queen memory foam mattress, two pillows, a fleece and a throw blanket. Those who get cold may want to bring an extra blanket depending on your destination. Native’s Biggie is outfitted with an inverter to charge your phone and tablet – Netflix always tags along.

Extras for the Ram conversion include a hitch bike carrier for $100/trip, inflatable SUPs (paddleboard) for $25/day and a hammock for $30/trip.

Native Campervans Small

Making minivans awesome for $85/night. It’s a Dodge Grand Caravan, so it should be self-explanatory. It sits five and sleeps two. You can add a rooftop tent for $40/day, and the rest of the extras are similar to the Ram Biggie.

It’s a minivan, so the kitchen isn’t quite as cool as the Ram ProMaster but includes:

  • Sink with a Tap & Drain
  • 3 Gallon Water/Waste Tank
  • Single Burner Gas Stove
  • 2 Propane Canisters
  • Cooking Utensils
  • Cutlery
  • 2 Pots & 1 Frying Pan
  • 4 Plates, 4 Bowls & 4 Cups
  • Cooler (holds equivalent to 24 cans)

Don’t want to sleep in a rooftop tent? The back converts into a double bed for two with pillows and a Rumpl blanket.
