Ready.Set.Van, a brand that creates electric vans for off-grid living, has launched a line of campers for adventurers who want to live the #VanLife. Built with Ram ProMaster vans, the vehicles are powered by Tesla battery modules that allow inhabitants to live off the grid without electrical outlets or generators. The exterior resembles any other camper van, but the interior, on the other hand, tells another story. The vans include a raised bed with built-in storage, a lounge and dining area with upholstered seats, a kitchen complete with a commercial-induction cooktop, stainless steel sink, and fridge, a “garage” area to store items like bicycles, and an outdoor shower.
Inside the van, the interiors are white, modern, and sleek. The kitchen countertops are made of brown wood, while the floor resembles hardwood floor. There are also some light fixtures on the roof. While most vans come with 100 or 200 amp hour (AH) battery life, Ready.Set.Van offers models with 420 AH, 840 AH, or 1260 AH. The 420 AH model would harness enough energy for the air conditioner to run for four hours, while the 840 AH and 1260 AH would harness about 8 and 12 hours, respectively. Ben Fraser, Ready.Set.Van founder, said in a press release that the intention was to create the ultimate off-the-grid experience.
“A lot of our clients are from the East Coast, where summers can be extremely hot,” Fraser said. “Or they have dogs and want to be able to leave the dogs in the van while they’re out adventuring for the day. Having the capacity for extended hours of air conditioning can be a game changer.”
The standard model starts at about $35,000, while other models with more features—such as a deluxe shower and toilet with a retractable door, or a fold-up bed that can transform into a dining area for four to six people—will cost more, starting from about $42,250 and up. Custom models are also available. To learn more about the new models, visit Ready.Set.Van’s website.
