    it's like $440 or something and you have to take it for a week, so you have it for the whole time of the festival, if you want add some things like they have a solar shower, etc. for additional funds.

    This is good for people who were already planning on renting a car/van/etc.

    Also a comfortable place to sleep.

    I'd be so tempted to attach a "FREE CANDY INSIDE" magnet once I got to the campgrounds........... and reward brave, curious folk with Bubbletape and Fun Dip.

    It's not bad, I looked at 4/13 - 4/20 from LA and got a price like $500. $200 deposit.

    Yeah, I checked the prices too. Very, very reasonable for an entire week. If you get it out of LA you won't go over the miles either. A great alternative considering there are no RVs allowed this year. The comfortable bed is a huge plus. The camping stove / sink in the back is really nice too.

    Yeah even if you have a group you could fit a tent or 2 in the camp spot, charge whoever uses the bed maybe a bit more than everyone else, then you have a sink, stove, all that jazz and it comes w/ the folding chairs as well.

    Not a bad deal. If I get this and then have people who need a camping spot split itll all work out.

    hey guys you have to be careful,

    I emailed coachella about my campervan (its a 76 dodge b200 if that helps), It has a bed fridge and propane stovetop.
    Apparently they wont let it in as its considered an RV, even though its a full size van with a "popped" roof. They said that as a general rule anything that is designed to be slept in will not be allowed in.

    I emailed with a photo and so did my friend and we both got the same reply

    I reserved one if someone cancels. I was the only one on that list. Just an hour ago they called and said someone's plans fell through.

    If anyone else wanted one, get put on the reserve list in case of cancellations.

    Congrats! What are your thoughts on the post above you. I think its incorrect, but it's the only thing leaving me hesitant.


    *edit*
    Wait a minute Creep. Did you create an alias to post that, thereby tricking someone into cancelling?

    No, althought that is kind of cleaver. Their website says it it Coachella friendy as far as all the features go. As long as the size fits I don't see why they should give a shit what's in it. My opinion, unfortunately not theirs.

    Cool. I sent them an email asking to be on a waiting list. Hope this works. It is a really good looking set up. Whatever way it goes, update us after Coachella with a review of the van and any hassles given.

    Good luck to ya. I think the fact of tickets selling out so quick screwed peoples rental intentions over.

    Will do. I have read nothing but good reviews. I heard they don't rent them to people going to Burning Man though.

    No, not a creep. just telling u what has happened to me.. why would i want somebody to cancel if i already own my own van??

    i'd email coachellas info adress and see what they say.. better than showing up and shown the exit.

    You might want to read the user name of the boardie who posted above you. Look around the board a little more. Maybe even read a thread or two. Turn your sense of humor back on and rethink your response. js

    I don't mind you raising suspision though, it may help me out since I'm on the waiting list.

    I have emailed Coachella about these vans to see if they are allowed and still haven't heard anything. I'm 3 days away from posting the question and website link on Paul T's FB wall to ask him personally lol.

    These vans are normal size but I'm slightly paranoid to spend 580+ gas for the week to rent it if they aren't allowed due to having a sink, stove and bed inside it.

    HELP

    Other people have contacted them and supposedly anything you can sleep in isn't allowed. But I'd bring an extra tent and be like but we're not sleeping in here! or something....
