Understanding VanLife MTL Rental Vans – Part 3

This article follows up on:

Part 1 : Interior Comfort and Amenities

Part 2 : Autonomy and Electricity

PART 3: FOUR SEASON ENTERTAINMENT AND PREPARATION

As you have probably noticed, we are very proud to have four-season vans at VanLife MTL! Whether to relax and escape into nature or practice your favourite sports and experience unforgettable adventures, our vans are the ideal partner in summer and winter! In this article, we explain the equipment that lets you experience this four-season pleasure and the possibilities of transporting your sports equipment.

SUITABLE FOR ALL TEMPERATURES

  • COLD WEATHER: tested and approved at temperatures as low as -20 degrees Celsius; you will be impressed by the comfort our insulation and heating provide in winter. The heater runs on the vehicle’s gas and 12 V and is very economical.
  • HOT WEATHER: Our converted vans do not have in-cabin air conditioning since you need to be plugged in to use this option. It is, however, available in front while driving. We have a solution for those hot days, though, as the van comes equipped with two bi-directional ceiling fans with ten speed options.

THE PERFECT PARTNER FOR YOUR FAVOURITE SPORT

  • Biking :
    I am often asked if it is possible to bring your bike rack. Yes, it is possible, but not recommended. Our optional bike rack is designed to allow you to open the rear doors. Remember, your main storage is located there, as is your outdoor shower. If you use your bike rack, you will need to uninstall it whenever you need to shower or access the storage under the bed(s).
  • 2) Inflatable paddleboard, golf, scuba diving, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, etc.
    Do not hesitate and bring lots of gear if your van is in 1-2 passengers mode (1 bed)! The space under the bed is incredible and allows you to bring a lot! We talk about it in Part 1 : Comfort and Amenities in this blog series. You must keep your big items to a minimum in a 3-4 passengers van (2 beds), as the space is more limited, but still good!
  • Kayak? Longboard surfing?
    Quebec seems to include many kayakers and surfers! I often get questions about bringing these items on your MTL VanLife trip. Unfortunately, other than an inflatable kayak, these will not fit in or on your van. However, our 2-inch hitch allows you to bring a trailer to haul your larger toys. (Note that VanLife MTL does not offer trailer rentals).
  • Motorcycle? ATV? Skidoo? Seadoo?
    As you can imagine, these will not fit in our campers. As mentioned previously, you can always bring a trailer with you (and I repeat, VanLife MTL does not offer trailer rentals).

WHAT IS INCLUDED IN YOUR RENTAL

Here are some suggestions of what to bring with you in addition to what your rental includes:

  • We include a full set of sheets and pillows in your rental. However, we recommend you bring a warm comforter or sleeping bag, which we also offer as extras.
  • Do not forget that you have electricity in your van! Add comfort to your trip and bring your coffee maker, toaster, dryer, etc.
  • Camping items such as a BBQ, chairs, table, etc., are also available as extras.

Each rental comes with a twenty-minute training session on how to operate your van and a user guide that you can consult along the way. If you have any questions, please contact us at info@vanlifemtl.com
