Traveling in your van requires that you will always need to find a place to camp for the night. We often spend a lot of time looking at various resources including phone, atlas and search engines to try to find a place to call home for the night. VanUnity will now replace all of the methods we previously used. All State Parks that allow camping will be populated in our database as well as other user submitted Camp Sites such as BLM Land camping and other locations. Our family loves to travel so we also include FEATURED CAMPSITES which are full articles with photos of places we have camped in our van.
DRIVEWAY CAMP HOSTS
Sometimes while traveling you don’t necessarily need a full fledged campsite. Sometimes you just need a safe place to park for the night. That’s where our Driveway Camp Hosts come into play! Driveway Camp Hosts are other VanUnity users that have volunteered to become a Host for traveling Van owners. Hosts are listed by their generic Zip Code so when you find a Host you’d like to stay at, you simply contact them via the contact details they’ve provided in order to check on driveway availability and what the specific address is. We encourage all VanUnity users to sign up to become a Driveway Camp Host.
REPAIR & CONVERSION SHOP LISTING
One of the things I’ve experienced while breaking down on the road is the need to find a good repair shop that has Vanagon experience. Often time people would resort to forums and social media in order to post the typical “I’m broke down in , what’s a good shop nearby?”. Having to post and wait for a reply is now a thing of the past. VanAlert has a crowdsourced database of reputable Repair Shops that other Vanagon owners use and recommend. So now, if (when) you breakdown, simply open the VanAlert app and select the Repair Shops icon. A listing of reputable Repair Shops and Rescue Crew entries are listed based on closest distance to your current GPS location. Now you don’t even have to weed through a list in order to find a close shop, the app does it for you!
