Unless you are in retirement, a camper van would likely only see its use in summer. It is kind of a waste of money, if you really think about it. Plus, as an infrequent adventurer, you may or may not know how best a camper should be outfitted for an outdoor adventure and life on the road. That said, why buy a camper when you can rent a completely outfitted, ready-for-adventure unit?
What’s more, it is a camper that was used by a world-renowned photographer, alpinist, and Oscar-winning filmmaker Jimmy Chin, who had lived in the camper while filming Free Solo, an Oscar-winning and Emmy-nominated feature documentary chronicling Alex Honnold’s climb of 3,200-foot El Capitan in Yosemite – rope-free. In other words, you can now rent the Jimmy Chin’s Chevrolet Express 2012 for your summer adventure.
Chin’s ride is especially outfitted as an adventuremobile which the man himself have proven its worth. Some of the standout features of the Chin’s Chevrolet Express 2012 include:
• Sleeps up to four people through one pop-top camper that houses a double bed, and a fold-down double bed
• Propane stove for cooking meals throughout your adventure
• Solar power system uses roof-mounted panels for electricity, making it easy to stay off the grid while still offering everything you need for comfortable nights and downtime
• All-wheel drive to power through the elements on the road
The filmmaker is setting out on a summer of travel and he thought, why not let others benefit from his trusty ride and hence, has listed his adventure companion on Turo, a peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace. For the next 30 days, starting today, you can rent Jimmy’s ride at $250 per day. The van, in case you are interested, is located in filmmaker’s home of Jackson, Wyoming, U.S.A.
