Bear was built for off-grid relaxation. No hookups needed with the onboard solar power, 46 gallons of hot/cold running water, a Nature's Head composting Toilet, diesel heater, backdoor hot shower, refrigerator, 12v fans, full kitchen & much more...

Design focused for 2 to 3 passengers. There is comfortable full bed in back (75" x 50"), with a cushioned couch and air mattress serving as another sleeper. An optional third, removable / passenger seat can be installed upon request.

Country Kitchen: Enjoy the three-burner propane stove and oven, stand-up Isotherm 4.6 cubic foot refrigerator, long butcher-block counter space, and a deep, granite/quartz sink with 2-stage filtered waterspout.

Water Supply: 46 gallons of water are on board with a propane on-demand water heater for dishes or showering off the back doors (see gallery). There is an 18-gallon gray tank undermounted also.

Power: 200-amp hour lithium battery bank. 400w tiltable, solar panels.
16 USB ports (12v & 110). Four 110v outlets. Victron 2000w inverter. Also, the battery bank accepts charges from: Shore power, engine, and solar panels.

Prioritized Scenery:
Enjoy surrounding views from 4 windows installed in the cabin, a couch next to the sliding door AND a solid cedar 'Sky Deck' on the roof!

Does a bear go in the woods?
Not in our van! A Natures Head composting toilet is hidden inside.

Climate Control:
A Maxx Air roof fan + Sirocco II adjustable bed fan + 3 slide open screened windows create fantastic airflow in the cabin. The cabin Deisel Heater will keep the cabin toasty on cold nights.

Final Note: The Bear is a front-wheel drive made for touring NOT 4X4 action.

Recommendations

We are located 45 minutes North of LAX Airport in Oxnard, California.
You will be:
5-10 minutes from three beaches -Silver Strand Beach, Oxnard Shores Beach & Hollywood Beach.
15 minutes from Ventura Pier and Ventura Fairgrounds.
20 minutes from the Rincon Ocean Parkway (camp on a sea wall with great surf)
25 minutes from Lake Casitas (boating, fishing and camping year-round)
30 minutes from Ojai Valley and the Sespe Wilderness (backwoods camping, hiking)
2 hours from Big Bear Lake (mountain town and ski / snow / lake resort).
4.5 hours from Sequoia National Park.
6.5 hours from Yosemite National Park.

***Disneyland is only 1 hour and 40 minutes away!! And Magic Mountain (a rowdier theme park) is only an hour away. The list goes on and on. Getty Museum, Hollywood, Santa Monica Pier, Universal Studios, Mammoth Ski resort... to help out, we've stocked the Bear's book shelves with travel guides and local nature books to give you a long list of places to explore and research.

Other things to note

When you pick up our van, we will have the gasoline tank, propane tank, diesel heater tank and the freshwater tank filled up. The grey water tank will be empty. When you return the vehicle, we only expect that the vehicle gas tank is filled, and the gray tank is emptied.
Tips for a great trip:
Leave the heavy luggage at home. Pack light. We have a good amount of storage for a campervan, but it always fills up FAST.
Try not to over fill the Fridge. It works well to keep your items cold but overcrowding it interferes with its refrigeration abilities.
Soapy water ONLY down the sink. Food headed that way will lead to clogged plumbing and bad smells :(

Please find another van if you’re headed to Burning Man, Coachella, or any music festivals. Also, no towing please. You will need to purchase Outdoorsy’s insurance. Binders are not accepted. No smoking, of any kind, is allowed.

Our best friend is Smokey the Van Cat, but SMOKING of ANY KIND isn't allowed. If our van is brought back smelling of smoke (other than campfire smoke) a $150.00 extensive cleaning fee will be added.

No off roading/ 4X4ing. This is a front wheel drive vehicle suitable for hard top roads or stable dirt roads leading to camp sites.

Hi all.
We (Rob & Luz) started On the Trail Adventures Inc for outdoor enthusiasts like us. Our love of the mountains, backpacking, surfing, kayaking and pretty much anything outside cities inspired us to build rustic vans and share them with the public. Rob is a California boy while Luz hales from Colombia. Together we make an awesome Gringo-Latina combo! We are both health care professionals, grandparents, beach bums and mountain goats (not necessarily in that order).

Just a great experience with Robert and Luz. Their custom RV had everything we needed and it was so cozy and comfortable. Great features inside and out and made for a special trip. Robert was quick to respond to any questions we had and he and Luz made sure we had a personalized and special experience. We felt at home in the Bear! A great Halloween weekend trip. We even had a Jack 'O Latern sky. Thank you!

We had an amazing trip with the “Bear Necessities” campervan! But don’t let the name fool you, because you won’t find a more intuitively designed campervan anywhere else. The van had everything we needed and more, including an incredible rooftop deck! The photos on the booking page do not do the campervan justice. From the labor of love design to the numerous features, it really was unlike any of the other campervans I have enjoyed in the past.

Q.Is your van difficult to drive?
A.
If you can drive a car you can drive our van. We also have a rear view camera that gives you a better view of whats behind you than you have in your own car.
