Forget Expensive Hotel Rooms – Road Trip in a Minivan Camper Instead

If your idea of the perfect road trip is chasing the sunset down a deserted dirt road, or ticking off as many national parks from the bucket list as you can, van life travel may be the way to go. Traveling the United States by van is the perfect way to explore remote destinations and off-the-beaten-path attractions, while never having to deal with the hassle of finding a hotel at the end of the day. If you’re on a budget or prefer a simpler form of travel, there are several reasons you may want to opt for a minivan camper over a fully-decked out camper van, motorhome, or RV.

The conversion van rental craze is sweeping the globe, and for good reason. Conversion vans combine the comfort of having your own home on wheels with the flexibility of being able to go wherever you want, whenever you want. Conversion van rentals are easy to drive and are a great way to try out the campervan lifestyle before you invest in your own.

One of the best ways to experience the dramatic natural beauty of the California coast is to spend a night or two at one of the Big Sur campgrounds along Highway 1.
