I didn't say banana? It's an orange Honda Element... get it? Of course you do, You're clever! That is why you are looking into renting this fun and friendly "micro-camper".
"Orange You Glad" is our family Honda Element converted into a micro/stealth camper ready to hit the road and camp anywhere you want to spend the night. She will seat and sleep 4 comfortably. Two can sleep in the car and two-three on the rooftop tent. This is a great vehicle for 1-4 person camping and has indoor lighting and some fun hidden secrets. If you are just a party of two then you can sleep in the car comfortably with no one being the wiser. Hence, "stealth camper".
We provide several optional camping kits that are extensive ready to toss in the car and roll so if you are from out of town, or new to camping you don't have to travel with the basics.
Interior rechargeable lighting to party all night long.
Rechargeable electric fan
Bug screening to sleep with the windows open in warmer weather.
Custom interior blackout shades that provide some interior color and heat insulation.
About the tent:
The tent takes one person less than a minute to set up and get open then just a few more to get all the windows that you want open and situated just right. Around 5 minutes all said and done. Packing it back up is pretty much the same.
Spacious design provides excellent head room to fully sit up and relax in the tent and take in the views from the large screened side windows.
Built in gear storage and storage bag on top with extra room for mounting a solar panel.
Room to store your bedding while traveling so you you can park, pop up and go to sleep.
Boot bags to keep your stinky shoes and clothes outside the tent.
Made from high quality 280g rip-stop ventilate coated poly-cotton material so you will be protected from even the heaviest rain and winds.
7cm high density foam mattress makes it seem like you are sleeping at home (If you have a firm mattress at home that is. In our family, Mr. Vanlife likes it, Mrs. VanLife needs a bit more cushion so she brings a camping mat).
Want to take this bad boy camping in the early spring, late fall, or even winter? You could also add-on a custom fitted insulator to keep the tent a lot warmer at night.
No cooler? No problem! We rent a small 28 quart cooler that fits perfectly in "Orange" for a small extra fee.
We also have a solar powered fridge/freezer, and running water coming soon!
