Camper vanning is already a popular way to road trip across many parts of the world. Typically, tourists fly into a hub city and then rent a vehicle that has been converted into a smaller version of what we would consider a motorhome here in the U.S. The vehicle becomes a mode of transportation as well as temporary kitchen and vacation lodging.
Travel by camper van has many benefits ranging from fuel efficiency to flexibility and convenience. If you have a valid driver’s license and automobile insurance coverage, you are qualified to drive a vehicle like the JUCY Champ from JUCY RV Rentals.
Based out of New Zealand, the brightly colored neon-kiwi vehicles are available for rent in three flagship locations in the Western United States: Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas. From an epic trip along US Highway 101 or a drive through Yosemite, Death Valley, or Joshua Tree National Parks, wherever you go on your adventure is as open as the road before you.
The ability to store food and prepare meals cuts down the frequency of eating out as well as drive-through costs. You’ll also be able to serve up healthier food—a habit our family quickly tends to fall out of once we start shopping for groceries at convenience stores.
Unlike car camping, where you are constantly breaking down and setting up camp, up to four passengers sleep inside beds located in the passenger compartment as well as a collapsable penthouse affixed to the vehicle roof. I can only imagine this helps to keep the “nature” mess under control too; anyone who has ever broken camp on a rainy day knows what I am talking about.
Another bonus—since you’re basically driving a tricked out dodge caravan you can simply travel where you normally would in a minivan. If you want to go to the drive-in movies, have at it. No need to search out overflow lots or large-vehicle parking spots, that is unless you want to walk across the entire rest stop.
We hope to get out in a JUCY Champ sometime this fall. In the mean time, you can book your own trip here: https://www.jucyusa.com/rv-rental-locations/
