About Spencer Martin

The VanLife KC Fam loves camping and being in the outdoors in Kansas City, Lubbock, and elsewhere. We also love sharing that opportunity with others. That is why we decided to start a business doing just that. We rent out camper vans in the Kansas City Metro area so you can have the trip of a lifetime. We also just expanded to Lubbock, TX with Adventure Rig Rentals LBK and can't wait to see y'all there. We specialize in camper vans and ultralight, microtrailers to help you "Choose Your Own AdVANture" Reach out today!

Memories made on trips with Spencer Martin's RVs

Easy pick-up and drop-off. Yoda was very nice and clean. Bed was comfortable and clean. Everything was well thought out. Easy tow behind a Wrangler (spare tire will need to go in the back). The optional A/C is battery powered, with charger when plugged in. The charger doesn't quite keep up with the A/C unit, so it only ran for about 6 hours even though we were plugged in. That said, we had a fan we plugged in and stayed quite comfortable with the windows open. Would rent again!

This car was great, small yet spacieus inside. The rooftoptent pops up in minute and the bed inside is great. I slept like a logg. My daughter and I made a roadtrip and slept inside and in the tent. Easy peazy. Too bad I could not take it home😉💋

Great experience renting the Yoda from Spencer. Definitely enjoy the flexibility and use of the trailer for weekend getaways.

The RV was perfect for our trip. Easy pick-up and Spencer provided great instructions. Could hardly tell the trailer was being pulled. There were just 2 of us and we camped with RV friends so no need for other amenities. Awesome to not sleep in a tent!

Had a great time! The trailer was perfect for our needs. It was easy to pull behind our Jeep Wrangler and the space is very well thought out. Love the storage under the bed and in the “cabinets.” Spencer was incredibly easy to work with and communicated very well. We will definitely rent from them in the future and would highly recommend!

We had so much fun renting from VanLifeKC! We took it for a 3-night run to southwest Kansas where we explored Lake Scott, Monument Rock, and Little Jerusalem State Park. Because it’s January & that area had a bit of snow on the ground, we were a bit concerned that we’d be cold at night , but the van was perfect! We had plenty of heat, with the van staying a cozy 65 degrees (our setting) all night long in spite of the freezing temps outside.

Spencer’s answer

Hey Julie, we are so happy that you had a great adVANture and can't wait to see y'all again soon. Thanks for sharing your expereinces!

Excellent service! The Van Life KC team is hyper responsive and extremely professional. The Darth Vander was perfect for rolling through the Ozarks. We experienced temps ranging from 65 to 10 degrees and were completely comfortable the entire time. Get some camper van time!

Spencer’s answer

Hey Jeff! Thanks so much! We are glad you stayed warm and had a blast! Hope to see you again soon.

I took Orange from KC to the Canadian Rockies for 3 weeks in November and it handled like a champ, snow and all. The tent (with a good bag and some extra blankets) was also plenty warm as temps dropped into the single digits. Spencer was super flexible and also understanding and accommodating with any troubles or questions I encountered. Overall a great experience and I would recommend the car and the company to anyone looking to have a “van life experience” either locally or off the grid.

Darth Vander was a pleasure to drive and live in for two weeks. Spencer and Sarah were great to work with. The whole experience was unforgettable for all the right reasons. Go for it, it's worth it!

Spencer’s answer

Thanks so much Molly! You were a pleasure yourself! We hope to see you again soon!

Vehicle as advertised and perfect for our camping situation (boondocking but access to showers and toilets).
