Alaska Stoke Vans is owned and operated by Randee and Eric Kissinger in Anchorage, Alaska. We have two (soon to be three), fully stocked Ram Promaster 1500, 136″ WB cargo vans ready for the road. We custom built our vans with simplicity and comfort in mind to help you get outside and explore Alaska. Our vans are fully maintained in house by certified HVAC master mechanic Eric, and annually inspected by a factory certified dealer to ensure the vans are running properly and meet all safety standards. Also, we clean and detail the vans inside and out before you arrive. A clean van is a safe and secure van.
Meet your hosts, Randee and Eric:
We met in 2011 in the small town of Glenwood Springs Colorado. I, Eric, had moved across the country from my hometown of Williamsport Pennsylvania, to pursue my career as a HVAC technician. Upon arriving in Glenwood, I began looking for a place to live. On my second day of searching, I met Randee and her roommate who, coincidentally, were looking for another housemate. I moved in, and in 2015, I asked Randee to marry me. She said “Yes”! In 2016, we decided, rather abruptly, to move to Alaska, and we are so thankful we did! Alaska has changed our lives and allowed us to discover “van life,” our preferred method of travel.
We first explored Alaska in a 2001 VW Eurovan, and finding this such an amazing way to travel, we decided to open our van business with the Promasters. Let us share our passion for van life with you, come travel Alaska in style.

Great Times!Eric’s van Balboa was the absolute perfect vehicle for our Alaskan trip through the Kenai peninsula and up to Denali. It has everything that you would need, from the spacious interior, to all the cooking and camping gear you would want for an Alaskan van expedition. The bed was super comfortable for two people and had enough room for me (6ft tall) to completely stretch out with a great amount of storage space for luggage and hiking gear underneath. Eric was great to rent from and had very professional, transparent and consistent communication throughout the whole process. He even gave us a ride back to our friends house in downtown Anchorage after we returned the van. If you are considering renting Balboa from Eric, then go ahead and do it. You will not be disappointed. — Dan
