About Dan VanUp

www.VanUp.us Van life is more than a hashtag - it is ultimate freedom. Go wherever you want, whenever you want with all your toys and do it on the cheap. I traveled full time in a van for over a year and now I cannot live without one. It lets you travel without making any plans beyond what you're going to cook for dinner at the camp you find and how amazing the sunset might be. I want people to experience the freedom I feel whenever I hit the road and open their minds to the possibility of travel on four wheels.

Couldn’t have had a more incredible time with Ramsie! The perfect adventure van, she was easy to drive, had a place for everything, and I didn’t want for anything (except maybe a shower 😂). Dan was a super responsive host and did a great job with explaining everything. Would absolutely rent this van again!

Ramsie was everything I needed for a long weekend in the Sierras! Comfy bed, easy to drive, and equipped with everything I could possibly need. Can't wait to take it on another adventure soon!

Dan was super helpful, patient, and flexible both with pickup and drop off. Ramsie has everything you need and was great to travel in. Highly recommend.

Wow! What a fantastic first experience we had with Dan’s Club Wagon. It’s an older, pretty well maintained van that was fairly easy to drive. We did have to jump start the car once though because of leaving the key in, so it’s useful to have some know how about older vehicles. But otherwise the amenities and experience of the van are fantastic - the bed was super comfortable, the kitchen was easy to use and even had an oven, it was spacious, the lights and TV were a really nice touch, and overall we had a fantastic camping trip for two. Most of all Dan was really clear, patient, and reliable the whole time and provided us with excellent service. Highly recommend!

We had a fantastic time! The Club Wagon is perfectly equipped for traveling into wine country and down the coastline. The pull out refrigerator and stove worked wonderfully and the mattress was surprisingly comfortable. Also, Dan was very helpful and friendly. We can't wait to rent this wagon again during our next to trip to CA!

The owners were great and did a video tour ahead of time, with seamless handoff at the airport. We did not have any issues with the vehicle. Everything was easy to use and clean.

Ramsey was a dream to use from start to finish! Sarah & Dan made the pickup very easy and taught me all I needed to know about the van in a timely manner. 10 straight days of the van life and we didn’t run into one single issue during our trip! We will definitely be renting again and can’t wait for the next trip!

We had a great experience with Sarah and Dan from start to finish. Good communication. Easy pick up and drop off. Loved the van. Easy to drive. The higher clearance is a bonus. Made us comfortable taking a dirt road if needed. Comfy bed even for a couple of 50ish year olds. Well designed lighting. Pull out back kitchen was perfect. Had good weather but there is an awning you could use over the stove area if needed. The van is older but well kept up.

My partner, doggies and I had a great little weekend getaway up to Russia River with Ramsie. It all went pretty smooth and it's a great little compact vehicle with all the essentials. Sarah and Dan gave a lot of experience and knowledge of vanlife, which shows in the thoughtful, detail-oriented, yet simple and rustic design. Highly recommend!
