Hi, we are Slow Rhode

We are looking to help offset the cost of owning this beautiful VW Camper. I have been a car enthusiast my whole life and finally found this bus and completed the dream of owning a “Bay Window” camper. The bus is meticulously maintained and I’m happy to speak at length about the bus! We have had apartments on Airbnb for over a year with “Superhost” status and over 40 5 star ratings, so we take special care to make sure our guests are happy. Know you are renting from a true fan and beloved owner who will take the time to make sure your trip is wonderful!

We had a wonderful few days riding around Western Mass in ‘Elvis’. Brian made sure all our needs were met - going out of his way to make sure we had a great trip. Elvis was a delight! The sink, refrigerator and camp stove all worked great! Sleeping in Elvis was very comfortable- after we took advantage of the pop-up bed on top. The videos Brian provides are very helpful understanding the nuances o…

Our experience with Elvis and Brian was 10/10 absolutely unforgettable!

We had a minor issue with the power outlet on the first day and Brian drove 2 hours down to our campground to fix it for us.

We’re already talking about booking for next summer!

Would recommend without hesitation!

Brian was a great host. Vehicle was clean and stocked with linen necessities including biodegradable cups and plates.

But, when a last minute change in plans occurred due to Covid, he was completely understanding. (No the renters did NOT test positive)

Sweet Pea was fun to drive for the limited time we had her. We hope to reschedule our trip and bring Sweet Pea along.

I had a blast with Sweet Pea traveling around MA, visiting friends and camping at the beach. Sweet Pea is great fun to drive and a nice smooth ride. It helps to have some muscle to turn the (non-power) steering wheel but you get so many thumbs ups and shout outs from passers-by on the road, you hardly notice. I had a huge smile the whole week.

It's amazing that a vehicle almost 50 years old could…

Brian was a true pleasure to work with. He was flexible, prompt, accommodating. He also made the hand off very safe and created very complete videos on operating Elvis. It was a breeze. Elvis is a treat, we miss him already.

We loved Sweet Pea! Didn’t want to give her back 😂 Brian was an awesome host and the bus is fully stocked for camping. No need to bring anything really! We did have a mosquito net though that we wrapped around the back hatch and side windows to keep bugs out when sleeping. Took it for a few days ourselves and then home to CT for a staycation with the kids! Lap belts are safe with car seats (but n…

Nothing short of fantastic! Brian is by far the best host from which i have rented anything. He made my daughter's 21st one for the record books! We will be back!

My sons and I had a wonderful experience both with Brian and Sweet Pea! Everything was seamlessly worked out and communication was excellent. Not a problem and Brian gave great instructions for driving the camper and operating the interior and exterior of it.

Best vacation ever! Thanks Brian!

Next time we might try her brother camper bus, Elvis!

We had a wonderful adventure with Elvis! Stayed at multiple state forests and absolutely everything we needed for camping was in the van. Brian put so much thought into everything in the rental experience and was easy to communicate with from start to finish. The number of joyful reactions we got driving around NE in such a iconic car was refreshing after being cooped up in our apartment during this isolated time. Every part of the experience was clean and contact-less, and I can't wait to get back on the road again with this car soon!
