Burnaby adventure co offers rental cars equipped with rooftop tents, kitchens and more

Airbnb in a car?

In time for B.C.’s camping season, a Burnaby man has launched a company that offers a way for adventurers to get exploring faster.

Mike Plumb, owner of Dusk n Dawn Adventure Co., was inspired to create the company by his baby blue 1981 VW Westfalia van, nicknamed Dewberry.

He's renting out a pair of customized 2021 Subaru Crosstreks he calls "Airbnb in a car."

Aside from Apple CarPlay and Google Maps GPS, the vehicles feature four-season rooftop tents that can be set up in 60 seconds, solar-chargeable battery packs, on board power stations, refrigerated coolers, custom extending kitchens with stove, sink, and food prep space, and all kitchen and cooking necessities.

Optional add-ons include bike racks and roof cargo containers for additional storage.

Plumb says he's captivated by van life and the ability to travel freely and nimbly while experiencing the best sights British Columbia has to offer.
