Pickup trucks that served as Airbnb impounded

In New York, 7 vans serving as Airbnb were kidnapped by the impound. Some had an expired registration for more than 20 years.

In the streets of Manhattan, New York, a major police operation cleared the sidewalk of 7 vans that had been stationed there for many years. The particularity of these vans that never drove was to serve as Airbnb. On the ads, the owner promised to discover the « vanlife » for the modest sum of $ 97 a night anyway.

Ads now not found

Since the ads have been disabled as noted by an Airbnb spokesperson: “The host and the announcements in question are no longer active on the Airbnb platform. In June 2020, we entered into a strong information-sharing agreement with New York City and subsequently began complying with the City’s Short-Term Rental Data Disclosure Act, which provides regularly provide the city with the information it needs to effectively regulate short-term rentals ”.

Police have been alerted by a YouTube video criticizing the concept. The youtubeur announced that the van he had slept in was comfortable but also that it “stank”.

Forbidden to circulate for a long time

All the vans were registered in New Jersey which is a neighboring state. However, their license plates had not been valid for ages. Some had expired in 2000!

It was also thanks to this anomaly that the police intervened and impounded all the vans.
