As the cost of rents and home prices continue to outpace wages in the Bay Area, one company is building luxurious camper vans for millennials looking for alternative housing options.

The company is called “Glampervan,” which is based in San Francisco, turns commercial vans into full-blown glamping vehicles, has a bed, kitchen, refrigerator, table, and a rooftop deck.

The glorified RV appears to be influenced by broke millennials, who cannot afford to own overpriced homes nor pay inflated rents in the Bay Area. 

Glampervan chief excursion officer Rob Novotny told ABC 7 San Francisco, that the glamper vans were initially designed for millennial weekend glamping trips, but have become a full-time residence for many.

“One that comes to mind is a woman who is spending $5,000 for a 2-bedroom apartment and she actually has all the parking spots all throughout the city worked out already,” chief excursion officer” Rob Novotny explained. “Like, this one is a Thursday; this one is a Wednesday and all that so that she won’t get hassled and stay moving.”

New rules in San Francisco make it illegal for people to sleep in their cars overnight, but that isn’t stopping thousands of people from living in RVs and vans.

“Glampervans,” which range from $50,000-$90,0000, can be outfitted with queen-sized beds, a dining table, a kitchen with a sink and refrigerator, cabinet space and even a portable toilet.

“You just take this to your nearest Starbucks or behind a tree and pour it out,” Novotny said about the waste tank while showing ABC 7 how the toilet works.

Glampervan employee Sam Ausden, who lives in his van has a stove, fireplace, and shower.

“It’s been really easy and just allowed me to now establish myself in the Bay Area here without the exorbitant rent prices, but still having my own space to call my own,” Ausden said.

He also said he’d cut his commute time from several hours to a matter of seconds.

“I used to commute two hours a day to work, now I’m five feet to the front door of my office here,” he said.
