Great van and great owners. Very helpful and accommodating. It was a great experience and we will rent the van again and again. Thank you

Great rig for a fun weekend. We were nice and warm on a cold, windy, and rainy weekend. Easy to drive and easy to learn how to use all its resources.

Ivan and April’s revel was our second rental and the rear build out was a real treat
We spent 13 days living off the grid dispersed camping driving through northern California’s coastal my range
A true adventure
The 4 wheel high ground clearance Revel has the power and handling to get us to some of the most scenic campsites anywhere

I had a fun 3 days with Der Beast..just took a little drive north and stayed at a few Harvest Host spots. The rv had everything I needed which made it super easy as it was my first rv trip on my own. Excellent little kitchen, comfy bed and very clean. Ivan and April were very easy to work with and very helpful. Thanks!

Made some awesome memories during our first trip to Big Sur. Ivan and April were great hosts. A perk for us was that this RV was pet friendly. Definitely recommend!

We had a wonderful time in 'Der Beast'. Ivan and April were very easy to work with, explained everything in detail, and were readily available when we had a question during our trip. They were also flexible on timing for pickup and return.
I highly recommend renting this sprinter!

Ivan was a super host. He gave a great orientation to his van, and was super kind and flexible with return. This van is a dream, and it is in pristine condition. We’d absolutely rent again from Ivan.

April & Ivan are absolutely terrific! We picked up the Revel and Ivan walked us through all of the ins and outs (he has a checklist and an Ipad with the owners manual which is very helpful). Everything you could possibly need was included. Plates, silverware, toaster oven, Nespresso machine (which we loved)... The van is easy to drive and easy to use. We never had to plug in and had enough power to charge our devices and cook gourmet meals every night! Overall just a fantastic trip. Great hosts and an amazing van. Will certainly recommend going on an adventure and living the VanLife for quick minute and highly recommend April & Ivan.
