On the road again!

It's that time of year! National Parks are packed, campsites are buzzing, and the VLT expo van is on the move! Last year we kicked off the Vanlife Trader For Sale Lot in partnership with Adventure Van Expo. AVE is a nationwide adventure van camping event where you can come learn about vanlife from the experts, chat with professional builders, and shop shop shop! For our portion of the event, we have 5-10 vans for sale by private owners as well as the VLT booth. We've got a few expos coming up across the Northwest and Rockies so if you're in the area (or have been itching for some adventuring) get yourself some tickets!

Hood River, OR | June 22-23

Boise, ID | June 29-30

Evergreen, CO | July 27-28

Selling your van?

It's hard to explain the magic of these VLT for sale lots. It's like used car lot meets chill campsite. It's a place to show off your rig to a lot of potential buyers (we've seen them driven right off the lot!) and a place to meet some good friends. Our goal is to facilitate a section of the expo for people to shop who are serious about buying a rig from a private owner. When we can, we like to get Jon in the vans for a quick tour and it's been a blast to see all the unique touches people have put in their vans. We have a few slots left in the next three shows, so sign on up. Plus you get a free listing on the site!

In the market but overwhelmed?

If you're a buyer and the thought of scrolling through a thousand more listings has you wanting to messy cry, these events are your saving grace. Not only can you hit up the professional upfitter booths to see their shiny new designs, you can shop the VLT for sale lot and if you're lucky, drive off into the sunset in your dream van.
