The sun is shining, ocean calm calm and the Pacific Coast Highway empty. Sounds like a good day to start my Jucy road trip in Western USA.
The down-under rental company premiered in the States this past summer and after driving it for only one day, I can honestly say it’s a unique addition to the country’s roadways. Everywhere I stop people stare, ask questions and get excited about my adorable green Jucy Champ, a pimped out Chrysler minivan.
It’s easy to under stand why.
To start with, the van drives like a dream and isn’t too much to handle for people who aren’t used to driving big cars. It’ll get you more miles to the gallon than those massive RVs, but still has plenty of space to spread out and get comfortable.
And what does all that space include?
On top of all the basics of modern vehicles, power-steering; air conditioning and what not, this ride also includes:
- penthouse bed on top with ladder to reach it
- a fold out, standard-size bed inside, suitable for two people
- sheets, pillow, towels and blankets
- DVD player, CD player and radio
- 41-liter fridge
- sink with a fresh water tank
- gas cooker
- interior table as well as another fold out table for outside
- dishes, cutlery, kettle, pots and pans
- interior lighting, blinds and electrical outlets
The Jucy team in Los Angeles were extremely helpful in showing me how to use the all the Champ’s goodies. I’ve already assembled my bed for the night and am now laying down in it, parked up on the beach in Santa Barbara. Already loving my life on the road with Jucy.
