What Rocky Mountain Campervans Tells Us
Rocky Mountain Campervans is a family-operated business with two branches― Las Vegas and Denver, and offers fully-equipped campervans. The range of campervan options caters different budgets and group sizes through distinct camper interiors. The vintage fleet of Volkswagen units allows you to travel discreetly without any hint of renting it out. No trace of marketing slogans or anything fancy. Hence, this may somehow be a downer for posh travellers. Still, these relatively old units are stocked with essentials and even extras for a comfy and one of a kind adventure. Not only that, you may be able to tag along your pets!
On the lighter side, all models, except the Tin Tops, feature a pop-up roof that creates room for at least two persons. Most of the vehicles are automatic transmissions, though there are also manual units, if you prefer such. The Full Campers can sleep up to 4 and still leave plenty of storage for your stuff. The Tin Tops, on the other hand, are suitable for couples or budget backpackers up to 2. As to the campervan inclusions, the company sees to it to provide all the essentials and even extras like assorted cookware, pots and pans, blankets, sleeping bags, camping chairs, clothes line, outdoor rug, deck of cards and so much more. Though there's no built-in shower and toilet, each van comes with a shovel or small spade so that you'll leave with no trace and a water sprayer for outdoor rinsing. They also rent out portable potties, if you want. At night,no need to plug-in for electricity because that's what your propane and battery are for! Just make sure to charge the camper battery every time you drive.
2017 Pro-master Pop-Top Luxury Camper
The most recent of all pop-top campers, the Dodge ProMaster is also the most luxurious option on fleet. The unit is, of course, smaller compared to large motorhomes, but the sleeping places are enough for 2 adults and 3 children because of the custom pop-top that creates 7′ additional height for standing up. Inside the vehicle, there's a large bed and rear bench that unfolds into a another bed. The full kitchen comes with a dual burner, sink with hot water and fridge/ freezer. Off the rear of the camper is an exterior hot water shower. And for your convenience, there's a stowable toilet with automatic bagging system but with no black water. Because this is the fanciest campervan on selection, you will enjoy the custom wood finished layout.
