Thanks for the comments guys . The mystery continues!
So maybe a bit more about what we plan to do will give you more information on what i need in a van and if this type of van would suit me.
We are a a couple in our late 20's early 30's who want to do a North American (maybe Mexico too) road trip.
For 6 months + we plan on driving south from Montreal (home base) skipping the North East (traveled it well) and starting from Virginia making our way across VA,NC,SC,GA,TN,MIS,LA,TX,NM,AZ,CA,OR,WA and that is as far as i have got lol.
The catch of the trip is we didn't want to get stuck in RV parks as seeing cities and being relatively alone in nature is a huge part of our itinerary, hence the class B.
Our requirement is also on the cheap. We have been lining up peoples backyards,driveways, ranches and whatever else people can offer at per night prices from $0 to $10 and have got amazing responses and invitations.
Naturally there is still car park camping if available but we prefer being with locals to get a better cultural experience of the area in which we are visiting.
So the odds of having a hookups are probably going to be rare, so boondocking setups are the ability to survive as comfortable as possible is key. I would like an aircon for sure but i haven't read of any boondocking setup greater then staying a day or 2 off grid that could regenerate such a power loss (though i have never rv'd before so i might be completely wrong).
We will be using a laptop as entertainment and have our eyes setup on a portable solar charger for our electronics from Goal Zero.
So for the van i will need to run just:
- Lights (will change to LED)
-Water pump/heater (will be off except only just before required use)
-3way fridge which we would like to run always if possible
I would love an aircon sure but i think i read that with boondocking for extended periods its not even an option.
What about portable aircons? I am really just trying to understand the basics at the moment
I can spend some more on the vans setup if it can extend our stays and increase resale value.
So yeah... what do you think i need? Is this van a possibility?
