Keen to get out on the open road, with plenty of camping, combined with the comforts of home, all for a great price? 

Good news! Camping in a JUCY van is precisely what you’ve been looking for.

What Is a JUCY Van?

A JUCY van is a part minivan, part camper. All the seats fold down to create sleeping space, and there’s a pop-up tent attached to the roof. You get two stories of sleep space, plus a sink, a gas stove, and a mini-fridge, all tucked into the back. There's also plenty of storage space and a mini-table that folds down for those rainy days.

Is traveling in a JUCY mini RV worth it? 

The best part about camping in a JUCY van is that you don't have to worry about the maintenance or equipment as you would with a private vehicle. You can also hire bedding, kitchen kits, and all sorts of other extras with your booking, so you don't need to buy your own camping gear. All you need to do is hop in and hit the road.

Camping in a JUCY van is a comfortable and inexpensive way to travel.

Right now, JUCY mini RVs are available in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Vancouver up in Canada. Multiple locations gives you more freedom, so you can structure cool one-way trips, or loop around the most popular national parks.

Camping in a JUCY Van

Camping in a JUCY mini RV is cosy and quirky. It helps to know a few things before you go. 

But before you set out in a JUCY van, you’ll want to prepare a few things. For starters, crank up the penthouse on the top of the van and make the bed before you head out. Then crank it back down again.

It’s a lot easier to climb into bed when the bed is already made. That’s especially true in the dark, after a long day on the road.

To save the vehicle’s battery, bring a couple of flashlights, as well. Or you can rent lanterns from JUCY just like other accessories such as solar showers, camping chairs, a cooler, or a picnic table.

Finally, make sure you rent the JUCY kitchen kit before you hit the road. It comes with all the cutlery and dishware you’ll need.

JUCY Van Camping Tips

Are you wondering what living the “van life” feels like? There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to go rent a JUCY van. And to maximize the joy and freedom you feel, follow a few tips.

Setting up your mini rv

Space is at a premium in any RV, and in particular our small JUCY mini RVs. To make the most of your trip, stay hyper-organized and make the most of the storage space. 

When you convert the van to a camper, do the following:

  • Place all your luggage on the front seats, or in the floor storage bins. These are located under the floor panels. Simply lift them and toss what you can into the storage.
  • Push the front seats all the way forward
  • Only when that’s all done should you lay the mattress bed down

Finally, don’t forget to secure everything in the mini-kitchen. Make sure there are no loose glass objects in the fridge, and close the water container and turn off the sink tap.

What to take on a mini RV road trip

To help you get it done faster, you’ll need to bring a few essential items with you. That’s because, while JUCY vans have a lot of things you can use, they don’t have everything. For instance, there’s no toilet.

Instead, bring some essential items with you.

  • Toilet paper
  • Sleeping bags
  • Pillows
  • Beach towels
  • Flashlight 
  • Sunscreen and mosquito repellent
  • Your most comfortable hoodie
  • Camping chairs
  • Food

The other thing you need to remember is a sense of adventure! If you've never been in a JUCY mini RV before, you'll be in for a grand adventure. Keep an open mind and a spirit of discovery and you'll have an amazing time.
