I had a beautiful trip to the redwoods in California and then up to Crater Lake with Shackleton! Communication with Eleanor was excellent and prompt. I tacked on a last-minute extra day to the trip to avoid a heatwave in Portland and they dealt with the logistical piece of that really smoothly. The bed is extremely comfortable (not something I can say of other vans I’ve rented!) and I liked the al…
Van was great and amenities were as described. Everything one or two people would need for a 4-5 night trip!! Owners were great as well
An amazing adventure with the van.
This was our second time renting Shackleton. We spent our first night at a state park near Pendleton (Emigrant Springs State Heritage Area), then to a BLM area east of Ontario, OR that Evan and Eleanor told us about. We loved it and spent 3 nights there! Then we wanted a change so we spent the next night pulled off the road under the pines in Sisters, OR for 2 nights. For our last night we drove t…
This is a well designed and very comfortable conversion that was done by a professional cabinet maker. It has been up and down the continent while the current owners lived in it for a year. As a result of their experience, they have thought of everything you will need to be comfortable and were very nice to rent from. I chose it for our November long weekend at the beach because it has a wood stov…
We had a great time in Shackleton, The Van! Simple and tidy, it was easy to take the van where we wanted to go. We encountered some pretty big rain storms and it stayed warm and comfy and camp and was not difficult to drive in the rain and wind.

We had a great time taking Shackleton around the Olympic Peninsula! There were a couple small things previous renters had broken, but nothing that impacted our trip and they were getting fixed soon. The hosts were great - very friendly and helpful, and they'd thought of all the little things that made the van extra convenient. My only complaint is that the cushion on the bed extender falls off if you sleep with someone that moves around a lot at night.
I completely fell in love with the Shackleton. It had everything we needed, and was the perfect van for an escape to the North Cascades. Eleanor was amazing with communication and helping get everything set with the trip. I will definitely be renting this gem again.
We had such an amazing experience for a week in Idaho, Montana and Oregon. Shackleton has everything you need! They literally thought of everything for this van. I can’t wait to rent it again. Eleanor was fantastic at communication and was available if needed.
We had a delightful time in Shackleton, trundling in a loop from Portland to the ocean, through the desert to the mountains and back again. It's a perfect option for two people, and we were really impressed by the spacious feel and well considered design. Some highlights included cooking a full meal comfortably indoors on a very windy night, waking up to the view out the back window, and sitting with the doors open by a beautiful river. Eleanor was super communicative and easy to work with, and if we get the opportunity to do so I'd book Shackleton again in a heartbeat!
