Glamping Van Life adventures in Asheville have you curious? Are you asking yourself why Glamp when you can Vanp? Vanping is the newest trend – glamping on wheels in high end conversion Mercedes Sprinter Vans is something you have got to check out. For the cost of a rental car and a night of glamping you could be living the high life in a custom Mercedes van with so many options you may never want to go home! Want to see all that Asheville has to offer and be able to change locations at a moments notice, Vanping allows you to have the luxuries of glamping but the mobility to travel and move around. It’s the ultimate way to glamp and truly experience Asheville and Blue Ridge Mountains.
Vanping started out on the West Coasts with people taking vans and tricking them out to be unique tiny homes on wheels; the van life movement has slowly trickled East. You can actually check out the largest Van Life Rally East of the Mississippi here in Asheville in a few short weeks! One of the biggest upsides is you can move around, pick different places to camp, see more, and even get off the grid if you choose. You may or may not have a bathroom/shower included in your van, but you can find these in a lot of public places pretty easily. That’s the cool thing about taking out a van, you get to decide which amenities are important to you and hit the road.
Our van, the Beastie Buggy, took 6 months to convert and has the feel of a modern cabin inside. It comes with queen sized bed, fridge, freezer, stove, sink with filtered water, custom pull out table, (thank you Chestnut Forge and Furniture) awning. As far as the extras, you get camping chairs, a grill, Eno hammock, wireless speaker, USB chargers, solar power and much more. You can even add a bike rack and take your bikes, add a tube or raft or whatever you like to create your own glamping… Vanping Adventures – on wheels of course.
I will say you have to have a little adventure in you because there are so many choices in a van. You have to be wiling to spend all of 5 minutes setting up or breaking down your Vanping site. It’s pretty amazing, you literally pull in, open the windows if you want, open the awning/drop the rug and you are done. Sleep with the doors open, netting down and feel all the fresh air – no bugs, comfy bed and ability to leave and move quickly to your next destination. The best part, the view is always changing!
Vanping certainly taking glamping to a whole new level! Try it – here you can rent our van!
