Van Life in Fall: 3 Things to Do This Autumn

What makes fall one of the best seasons for exploration? In addition to breathtaking foliage, less crowds, and idyllic temperatures, there’s also a lot to do. So, you can delight in emptier roads, fewer tourists, and some of the most radical seasonal scenery.  If you’re planning a road trip this fall, there are a few adventures you can’t overlook this time of year.

Turning Your Van into a Two-Bedroom Penthouse

Even on the ruggedness of the road, you can achieve the peak of luxury. Our entry-level campervan, the Go Terra, can sleep four with its fold-out Queen bed and convertible front seat mattress.

It’s German-engineered, with high-quality mechanics that make it second-to-none in the industry.  Rather than cut off the entire roof to make room for the pop-top, we simply carve out a pothole for easy-access.
