A Denver-Based Travel Company Is Making Your #VanLife Dreams Come True

A life on the road shouldn't just be for professional Instagrammers.

We’re all aware of the ubiquitous #VanLife hashtag and the freedom-loving, vagabond Instagrammers who come along with it. And it’s hard not to feel a pang of jealousy when you see their posts about waking up somewhere new each morning and cooking fresh food over an open fire. Now, a Denver-based travel company has created a solution so you can have experience #VanLife for yourself.

Dillon Hansen and Jon Moran of Native Campervans have been making their own fitted-out vans and renting them to travellers and adventurers who want to experience a true life on the road. And that’s without having to pack up their entire lives each time.

The vans come in two sizes: Biggie or Smalls. Biggie has a double bed and a small kitchen with a tap and two-burner stove as well as bowls, pots and cutlery. There’s also a convertible dining table and a ton of storage for all your belongings.

Smalls is, well, just a little smaller than this. With all the same basic features, just with a little less storage and space.

You can rent these bad babies from Denver, Colorado for a minimum of three nights. Which is perfect because Colorado has some of the best natural landscape to drive around and get lost in.

You’ll pay US$200 (AU$281) to book your van, which will be put toward the custom inclusions (like mileage and cleaning fee) in your booking. Check out more info here.
