Hi, I'm Nate! After hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, I was inspired to try out van life. Having grown up helping my dad in his woodshop, I bought my first van and learned how to convert it myself. I had so much fun, I decided to build another van! Soon, what started as a side hobby turned into my own full-time small business. When I’m not building vans I am exploring the outdoors. I grew up near a small town in the Sierra of California, somewhat near Lake Tahoe. I currently live in the greater Bay Area and have been here since 2007. I spend a lot of my time venturing out of town and exploring the nearby sights, trails, and mountains. I don't mind a 4-hour drive or even dropping in on Oregon once in a while. The only pets I have at this time are my bees, yep, I am a fellow beekeeper, bzzz! Quotes: "The mountains are calling and I must go" John Muir
Flew down to San Francisco and rented this camper van and drove north to Stinson Beach, then up to Mount Tamalpais for an epic concert at a stunning venue with my favourite band The War on Drugs. Most fun I’ve had in a while. Caught some waves and some great views. Drives nice and the bed is super comfy. It was everything we needed. Transportation and accommodation all in one! Beautiful way to see Northern California. Thanks Nathan for this great van!

We had an amazing trip with this rental van from Nate. There was good communication before and during the trip - when needed. The van itself was a dream to travel around with. It was equipped with everything we needed to live, cook and sleep in, and really enjoyed our trip. The bed could be a little tight for a tall person. We had a perfect holiday and would definitely rent again from Nate!

We loved our stay in Redwood! The van was clean, comfortable, and everything we needed for a nine day road trip around Northern California. Nate was responsive, chill, and had great reccs when our Tahoe plans fell through due to wildfires. Would definitely recommend!

Our van trip was great! We drove up to Fort Bragg and slept each night along the coast. I would definitely rent from Nate again!

Great experience, bed was super comfortable. Would rent it again!
Redwood was the perfect friend for our trip: absolutely reliable. We loved the cosy bed with good mattress and warm blanket. Everything is well equipped and made of good quality. Handling was easy. Handovers went smoothly. We enjoyed talking with Nate.

We were first time van campers at a big event and frankly were a bit nervous, but Nathan did such a great job of making us feel comfortable - his priority was that we got out there and used everything that the van had to offer, so that gave us a lot of confidence. The van ran great and all of the amenities were wonderful, we had everything we needed. We actually dream about taking Redwood out again on other trips since it feels like home now so I am sure we will be back for more :) Thank you Nathan for a great experience!
Such an incredible time! Would 10/10 recommend and do it again!
What a great experience! Nate was helpful and informative- he gave us a quick but thorough tutorial and sent us on our way. Redwood was everything we dreamed she could be and more! She gave us no issues at all over the span of 800+ miles in one week. Together we ventured to unbelievable coastline beaches, climbed beautiful mountains, experienced towering Redwoods, and camped in relative luxury and comfort. This van comes stocked with just about anything you might need and Nate is quick to respond if anything goes awry- he even talked us through adding our phones to the Bluetooth media player after we'd already hit the road. The bed is comfy, everything works as it should, and my wife and I couldn't have been happier with our trip. Do not hesitate- book Nate's Redwood adventure van with confidence!
