About Benjamin Hughes

I am a young Profesional who with his wife has sold everything in Australia and moved to North America to live the dream! We purchased a passenger van and over 2 months converted it into a campervan. We now live in the Canadian rocky mountains where we love travelling during summer and shredding the slopes during winter.

Ben was the best ever! He gave clear instructions and was always patient with our questions. The van is a great drive, easy to control and very comfortable. It had every thing we needed and much more. Love the fridge and its flexibility of acting as a fridge or freezer depending on your needs. It was home sweet home throughout the trip. We didn’t want to return the van!!

We had a great time exploring BC, Jasper and the ice fields in the van! Van had everything you need to enjoy your trip just need your food and clothes!

Benjamin was so friendly and helpful! We literally booked the night before and he was so accommodating and quick to respond. The S.S Cali was a joy to take out and we had zero issues with the van. Would rent again in a heartbeat! - Amanda

Ben and his van were just amazing.
The van has everything you need and easily feels like home after only a short amount of time. No better way to explore the Rockies!

My little brother and I had an amazing time in Ben and Lauren's lovely van ! It was perfect for our 6 day trip in the Canadian Rockies. Very easy to drive and well equipped.

I rented the SS Cali for a few reasons (style of vehicle, amenities, test out this new way of traveling...).

Benjamin’s answer

Thanks Lori for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure having you rent our van and hearing about your time.
I hope you can be a travelling musician in our van 😊

Ben was great to work with. Our trip had to be canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic as we were not allowed to visit Canada from the US. We hope we can rent from Ben next year.

Benjamin’s answer

Hi Win.
It is such a shame. But we will definitely see you next year!!

The SSCali is an absolute winner! Super quality conversion with everything that you could need for an amazing trip. Amazingly comfortable bed and drives like a dream. Ben and Lauren are super friendly and helpful and made sure we had everything we needed and more. 1,000% would recommend!

Booked this thinking it was in Calgary but ending up being in Banff which was too far for us unfortunately but Benjamin was so understanding and helpful and went ahead with cancellation with no issues. Thanks Benjamin muchly appreciated!
