"No, I am your father... ahem van!" He is shiny, black, and ready for adventure!Darth Vander is one of our flagship vehicles and he is amazing. Made by the incredible VanDOit team right here in Kansas City, this modular custom van is ready for you to get on the road and Choose Your Own Adventure! The van siths (siths... hehe get it?) up to 8 people with 6 removable seats for more floor and storage space.It has a queen sized bed on a hydraulic lift which can easily move up and down so cargo can be placed wherever you want on your adventure. There is a single mattress that fits on the slide-out for a third (or fourth if you don't mind sleeping close) person and then 2-3 more can sleep on the roof-top tent with plenty of room for more people and animals to sleep on the floor. This is an amazing vehicle for friends and families to get out and see the Star (Wars... Sorry I can't resist...I'm a big old nerd).We usually have it set up to both seat and sleep 4.Darth Vander has a lot of custom features for your adventure including our favorite: The Espar Heater system that allows you to Choose Your Own Adventure for all four seasons. It is integrated with the van and uses about a half gallon of gas to keep the van toasty all night long.Interior Custom Features:
- Full electrical system that works with shore hookups and recharges while driving.
- Cold water pump from a 6 gallon tank that can be used inside or outside.
- TV and DVD player that fold up out of the way when not in use.
- Queen-sized mattress, single mattress, and a roof-top tent. Several people and/or animals can sleep on the seats or the floor.
- An efficient Espar air heater inside to allow for all-season colder weather camping.
- Bug screening to sleep with the doors open on those beautiful summer/spring/fall nights.
- A retractable 8 ft. easy crank canopy for outside shade.
- Interior dome and accent lighting to party all night long.
- An MaxxFan Deluxe Complete Ventilation System for increased airflow.
- Moisture and mold resistant insulation.
- Passenger Swivel seat to turn the van into a living room.
- Kitchen pod with sink and counter space. (optional)
- lots of add-ons to help you choose how you want to live the VanLife.

The VanLife KC Fam loves camping and being in the outdoors in Kansas City, Lubbock, and elsewhere. We also love sharing that opportunity with others. That is why we decided to start a business doing just that. We rent out camper vans in the Kansas City Metro area so you can have the trip of a lifetime. We also just expanded to Lubbock, TX with Adventure Rig Rentals LBK and can't wait to see y'all there.

Excellent service! The Van Life KC team is hyper responsive and extremely professional. The Darth Vander was perfect for rolling through the Ozarks. We experienced temps ranging from 65 to 10 degrees and were completely comfortable the entire time. Get some camper van time!

Hey Jeff! Thanks so much! We are glad you stayed warm and had a blast! Hope to see you again soon.

Darth Vander was a pleasure to drive and live in for two weeks. Spencer and Sarah were great to work with. The whole experience was unforgettable for all the right reasons. Go for it, it's worth it!
