    Why not get an empty rental van? We did this in the US and it was fine. As long as you are not in the depths of winter (we did it in California) you shouldn't need to worry about refinements like insulation.
    Go to the nearest superstore, buy an air mattress and camping cooker, then borrow the rest like bedding off your son?
    Or like madrat said look at buying (for about the same as the rental price) then sell before you go or leave it with your son to sell and send the money back to you.
    I would think that a rental van is the cheapest idea, as you can also get insurance.
