Jucy, an Australian export, has made its way to Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas.
Things to love about Jucy minivan rentals:
1. Craving the RV experience? Instead of buying or renting a cumbersome, oversized Class A or C camping vehicle, opt for the class B minivan-sized Jucy. This converted Dodge Caravan handles better and is easier on gas than her larger counterparts.
2. Comfort: The deep, dense foam covered in a plush grey velour provides a comfortable sleep for two adults in the equivalent of a large double bed. The ventilation system works perfectly so there’s none of the morning clamminess one experiences waking up in a tent. And speaking of tents…
3. The pop-up tent penthouse allows you to bring along another couple or to store a couple of kids.
This space is best used in milder climates and/or by experienced campers with better insulated sleeping bags.
4. The kitchen: To access the cute, built-in kitchen complete with a mini faux marble countertop/cutting board, just pull up the rear door.
Here you’ll find a mini fridge, 10-gallon water supply, built-in stove and perhaps even more useful, a portable gas stove to cook on a picnic table or the on – board portable table that slides out from underneath the pop-up tent. Currently, Jucy does not come with chairs so packing your own folding ones is a good idea.
Other things we would love to see on Jucy: a microwave oven would be ideal as would an on-board porta potty. For now, try to camp near the toilets or a secluded wooded space.
