About this RV

Vinny is a custom-built Sprinter Van, ready for action. Whether you're headed to the beaches, the mountains, or anywhere in between, this rig will make your next adventure truly memorable. Vinny has a lofted, full-size bed, with plenty of space below for boards, skis, or even bikes. 350 watts of solar power will allow you to go off grid for days, exploring remote landscapes near or far. No hook-ups necessary! Vinny comes with a 50 liter fridge, two fans, a diesel heater, and an outlet for charging phones and laptops. We lived in this van through Colorado blizzards and a Chicago heat wave, and have designed it to stay comfortable in all four seasons.

Vinny comes equipped with swivel seats and a bench, so that a few people can hang out inside comfortably. The cabinetry and interior design provide you with maximum storage and a light, colorful vibe. A sink and 6 feet or counter space allow for plenty of room for food prep and dishes.

The Mercedes Sprinter is the ultimate #vanlife vehicle, due to an efficient diesel engine, rear wheel drive, and high roof. Vinny loves cruising down an open road, and gets over 20 MPG on the highway. He can bump along dirt too, if that's where your adventure leads.

What’s included?

Vinny will always be stocked with 24 gallons of fresh water.

Vinny will come equipped with a camp "couch," a propane camp stove, 3 propane canisters, and a collapsible table. There is a sun shower and a pop-up tent for getting clean in the woods.There will be linens, extra blankets for those chilly New England nights, and firewood upon request. Vinny has a bug net that can be used to keep the doors open and the pesky flies out on hot nights.

Our pantry is stocked with olive oil, salt, pepper, coffee, tea, and Taza chocolate. Our kitchen includes two sauce pans, one large pot, spatula, ladle, mugs, cups, plates, bowls, cutting boards, kettle and percolator, Chef’s knife set, and plenty of forks, knives, and spoons. Living in a van doesn't mean you have to compromise on cooking! We ate delicious meals throughout our van trip.

Pickups/dropoffs from Logan International Airport can be arranged. Will deliver the van within 25 miles for a fee. Inquire if you live further away but still want to rent.

Trips located within New England are preferred.

Pickup after 3PM, dropoff by 12 PM. Please inform if you'd like to adjust these times, and we'll try to be flexible.

Recommendations

New England has so much to explore! Below are some of our favorite locations and activities.

White Mountain National Forest: 2-3 Hours from Medford. Excellent hiking, with 48 peaks over 4000 feet, and the tallest mountain in New England, Mt Washington. Try any of the Presidential Range peaks for some steep New England hiking and splendid views. In Fall the leaves will blow you away. In Winter, skiing is the sport. Nordic ski in Jackson, or head to Loon, Cannon, Cranmore, Attitash, or other spots for some fine alpine skiing. Favorite towns: Sugar Hill, Littleton, North Conway.

Green Mountain National Forest: 3-3.5 Hours from Medford. See the best of the Green Mountain State! Camel's Hump and Mount Mansfield are two lovely hikes, and just about the best places for leaf peeping in October. Check out Burlington nearby. The little city is full of excellent food, and breweries abound in the area. If good beer is your thing, then Vermont may be the place for you. In addition, there is fantastic cheese, maple syrup, and local produce year round. Northern Vermont has excellent dkiing in the winter, particularly at Stratton Mountain, Killington, and Smuggler's Notch.

Acadia National Park: 5-6 Hours from Boston. This is truly an epic trip. The coast of Maine is a magical place, especially in summer, and Acadia is in a league of its own. You can hike, swim, go out on sea kayaks or whale watching tours, and eat lobster to your heart's content. Acadia is quite busy from Memorial Day to Indigenous People's Day, so book early if you plan on camping. Want to skip the crowds, and still see the splendor of Downeast Maine? Travel to Deer Isle, or Cobscook Bay State Park. Far fewer people, incredible camping opportunities.

Mt. Blue State Park: 3-4 Hours. The Mountains of Western Maine are way underrated, especially Tumbledown Mountain. Stop in the sweet little city of Portland on your way. The food scene here punches well above it's weight, and breweries such as Allagash and Bissrl Bros serve up quality beer.

The Cape: 1.5-3 Hours. A busy destination in the summer, with beautiful beaches, lots of nice food, historic towns, and fun bike paths.

Other things to note

UPDATE- OCTOBER 2021: We will be accepting reservation requests for 2022 beginning in January.

Please NO SMOKING inside the van.

When cooking inside, open window vents and vent fan for maximum air flow.

Pets are welcome! Any size could fit, but a small to medium doggy would likely be more comfortable.

Typically responds within 12 hours

Additional rules

No smoking or drug use is allowed in the vehicle. Your entire security deposit will be held until remediation can be obtained. Whatever the remediation specialist charges PLUS a service fee of $100 will be assessed out of the security deposit, and any remaining balance will be refunded to the renter as long as there is no other damage.

Do not drive the rig over 70 MPH. This is bad for the long term health of the engine, and short term fuel efficiency.

This was such an adventure for my husband and I. We wanted to do something outside the box, but not break the bank! This van was it for us. It’s quirky and not new, but has character and charm. We had the best trip and saw 4 new states for us!

Interior was as expected; very cozy.

Bed was exceptionally comfortable.

RV drove as expected; felt reliable;

Exterior was not as expected; more beat up than pictures in listing. With a little love and paint the outside could look much better.

We had a great trip in Vinny. The van was comfortable and had everything we needed for a base camp as we explored New England. Runs great and gas mileage is terrific. We’d definitely recommend Vinny!

We rented the van for a week and it was a great economical alternative. The sleeping area was comfortable for my wife and me , I am 6'1". The kitchen had everything we needed for camp meals and we had plenty of storage for clothes and pantry. The owners were easy to work with for pick-up and drop-off. Medford is an easy cab ride to and from the Boston airport.
