Jucy RV Rentals
New Zealand based Jucy RV Rentals— lauded in Condé Nast Traveler, the L.A Times, and the New York Times — proves the adage that great things come in small packages. Exported to the U.S. in 2012, their cheery green and purple minivans hit the road in disguise, appearing as humble, standard passenger vehicles with some storage on top and great paint jobs. On the road they have the easy navigation of a standard SUV, but once stopped, they transform into a roomy bedroom that sleeps up to four. Pop the container atop the van and pull down the ladder to enter the Penthouse, a roomy pod-tent containing a bed for two with handy pockets to keep items close. Inside the main cabin, alongside clever storage and a DVD player, the passenger seats morph into a comfortable bed, or makes way for the screw-in table stored beneath them. A mini-refrigerator, kitchen sink, and two gas cookers fill the trunk, a TV and DVD player folds down from the ceiling, and blinds allow for privacy as passengers weep for joy.
