I am looking for a conversion van, camper van, or small RV that I can use as a rolling laptop production studio, business office, and sleeping quarters.
My work continues to expand as a performer and as a resource for individuals and communities looking for ways to energize themselves and the groups of people they serve, and I am in need of a mobile headquarters that I can use to travel to and from the locations that I serve – mostly in southern California and Austin this year, but I’ll also be traveling to Phoenix, Tucson, Santa Fe, and up the west coast this year, so the need for a reliable mobile office/studio/residence has become paramount.
Can you help?
In other words, do you:
~ Have a van or small RV that you would be willing to donate, loan, lease, or sell?
~ Know someone who does?
I am looking to spend between $2500 and $6000, depending on features and condition, and some form of financing will be required unless you desire to donate or loan the vehicle.
Please email me with any information that will assist in finding the *perfect* vehicle. I’ll include a private concert in my travel plans for the person who provides the winning lead.
In addition to being open to receive the perfect vehicle as a gift or to purchase it, I am also willing to barter services, such as a private performance for you and your friends/family/community/organization/business or a consulting package to assist you in breaking through to a next level of effectiveness in creative living, community engagement, or fulfilling on some life-long dream or vision.
These are the things I do as I travel around anyway, so we might as well do some great work together! See below for a list of some of the offerings.
Here are the ideal specifications for the vehicle:
~ Good to excellent mechanical and structural condition
~ Simple and inexpensive to repair
~ Strong motor, transmission, and other high-dollar parts
~ Decent gas mileage – at least 15 mpg – DIESEL OK
~ Ample and comfortable sleeping quarters
~ Ample storage for clothing, equipment, dry food, drinking/cooking water, tools, and other supplies
~ Propane stove installed or stored for easy access and setup
~ Shower and toilet unnecessary, even preferred absent
~ Clean and orderly interior, with working electrical system
~ Deep-charge battery(-ies) for onboard electric, pref. w/ solar charge system
~ Awning installed on passenger side for use in creating simple outdoor gathering/chill/meeting/performance space
~ Nondescript exterior that can “pass” – nothing dumpy nor extravagant; interesting and unique OK, but must be non-offensive nor overly attractive
~ Roomy interior; prefer being able to stand up inside and not feel cramped at all
If you don’t have a vehicle or know someone who does, but you would like to help me find and acquire one, you can also chip in to help fund it:
