About Rose Maochi

Hello, I go by Rose. Spent most of my life on the East Coast and now enjoying the West Coast. Always fond of the great outdoors and found comfort in nature. My life changed drastically in 2020 and decided to turn a crisis situation into an opportunity. Purchasing a cargo van and converting it into a mobile home. Prior to purchasing I had no idea how I was going to build it out. During that transition time I was staying at an Airbnb in Boca Raton, Florida. After getting to know my Airbnb hosts they offered to help with converting the van. We were able to convert an empty transit cargo van into my little home on wheels in 3 weeks. I made several trips around Florida before heading West. Living and working remotely Bud and I traveled coast to coast enjoying beautiful state parks and scenic drives along the way. We found amazing spots to boondock and camp while appreciating the simplicity of Vanlife. In December I went on a short hike in the Phoenix area. Little did I know at the time I would meet my partner at the top of the hike - Lookout Mountain. After a couple months of dating and traveling together I made the decision to call Phoenix my new home. Bud brought so much joy to my life this past year and my goal is to share that joy with others. Excited to hear about all the new places she's going! To see more of my story follow @rideswithrose

We had a 100 percent trouble/free 8 days and 1,900 miles with Bud! Rose was always available and a super supportive host! I can’t say enough good things about our experience!

Rose is a wonderful host and made the adventure my daughter and I took a wonderful and successful experience! Her van "Bud" was fully equipped to meet our needs and Rose is an experienced and knowledgeable host, and couldn't be more kind. I will definitely return to Rose for my next road trip!

We could have not asked for a better trip! From the very beginning when we met Rose and she introduced to Bud, until the very end when we had to drop him off Rose was super helpful and accommodating. Bud proved to be an excellent adventure van, far exceeding our expectations. He took us from Phoenix up through Sedona, Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Painted Desert, the Mogollon Rim and back to the desert for a lovely stay near the Superstition Mountains.

Bud was an absolute treasure! He has everything you would need for an adventure and drives extremely easy. The bed is very comfortable and the ceiling fan is a great addition for airflow at night. He is also excellent on gas. Lauren is a kind soul that has thought of everything to stock Bud with (the umbrella came in handy in Sedona one morning), we also want thank you for parkng suggestions and places to eat! Highly recommend taking this van out if you're a couple, best friends, or a solo adventurer, you won't regret it!

This was our first time using Outdoorsy and we couldn't be happier. Rose was great to work with and was helpful throughout the entire process. Bud was exactly as described. After pickup, and a quick trip to Trader Joe's, we were off to the Grand Canyon. We set up (parked and opened the refrigerator;-)) in the Kaibob National Forest and spend the next day or so exploring the canyon! We stopped off in Sedona on our way back to Phoenix. Overall, the trip was perfect. Bud drives very easily and #vanlife is pretty great! If you've read this far, stop now and take the opportunity to try it for yourself! You won't be disappointed!

We had the BEST time with Bud! We traveled to the Grand Canyon, and Bud drove so easily and took us everywhere we wanted to go. We spent 3 nights, 4 days traveling around AZ. Rose provided us with everything we could’ve needed and more! This was our first time in a van and we couldn’t have been happier. Rose was a pleasure to work with. She was flexible, professional, and quick to respond at any time. We highly recommend her & Bud!
