Vincent is an extended Chevy Express conversion with a bright cozy cedar paneled interior. The van comfortably seats and sleeps two people in a double bed, with plenty of storage space for all your gear. The bed is configured to convert into either inward-facing seating to use with the fold-down table, or an outward facing sofa. The front passenger seat swivels to provide additional comfortable seating.The van is equipped with a 100W solar panel and a 100 Ah lithium battery which powers the lights, the fridge and a fan – when fully charged this allows you to remain off grid for 2-3 days. A fuel-efficient diesel heater keeps the van warm well into negative temperatures, and the vent-fan will keep you cool in summer.The van contains everything you need to cook and eat – a 2-burner gas stove can be connected to the large gas cylinder for indoor cooking or taken outdoors.Vincent is a normal-height white van, so from the outside is inconspicuous if parked in town. The curtains and window covers ensure privacy. However, you will not be able to stand up inside – everything is configured to be used sitting down!Note: our van’s bed was built to accommodate a couple who are 5’5” and 5’11”. We can sleep comfortably, but do not recommend this van for people over 6’ tall, unless you are travelling solo.Check out our Instagram @ camper(dot)converts to learn more about our van’s conversion and some great local adventures!

Hi! We're Natalie & Darragh, a Brit & an Aussie who have been living in Vancouver since 2018. Our van, Vincent, was a pandemic project - we bought an old van and turned it into our camper. You can see more about the conversion process on instagram - @camper.converts

Natalie was wonderfully responsive, flexible, kind, and accommodating throughout our whole experience on this trip! Vincent Van Gogh was a pleasure to take on the road, and an excellent travel companion. I would highly recommend Natalie as a superb host to set you up for your journey!

We had a really good time with Vincent, the van was really comfortable and full of everything we would ask for our camping trip through the Rockies! Natalie and Darragh also were very kind with before and during the rent!

We enjoyed our trip with Natalie and Darragh’s Van! Communication with them was very easy and very responsive.
For our first Van trip, they helped us to better organise our trip by sharing their past experiences and gave us useful tips.
They are making sure from the start to the end that everything goes very smooth.
Everything is provided with the Van, just come with your smile! :)

Natalie’s answer

Thanks for the lovely feedback Brice. We enjoyed hosting you and appreciated the extras you left for us and future guests! Special thanks to you for sending our head lamp back to us after it made its way into your things by mistake.
We would be happy to host you again any time.

We had such a great time with Vincent and can only recommend to rent this van. Natalie and Darragh, who were very kind hosts, put a lot of thought into their van and its interior. Also, the communication before and during our trip was very quick and easy. In total we had the van for 16 days for a tour through the Rockies and for us it was the perfect way to travel.

Have a question?Get answers directly from the host

Q.I'm tall, will I be comfortable in your van?
A.
We recommend that the van be used by people under 6 feet tall. If you are over 6ft, you may be comfortable if you are traveling solo and can sleep on the diagonal!

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
A.
One of the owners works from home at the pick up / drop off location, so we may be able to be flexible. Please let us know what you're thinking, and we'll try to accommodate.

Q.Does the van have bathroom facilities?
A.
No. There is no toilet or shower in our van. Toilet paper and a trowel will be provided though!

Q.Did you convert the van yourselves?
A.
Yes we did!! Vincent was our pandemic project - we bought him as an old plumber's van in April 2021 and spent a little over a year designing and converting him into our comfortable camper. We're always happy to answer questions about the process - and you can check us out on instagram @camper.converts.
