We rented “Su” for two weeks in July and had an absolute tremendous experience from start to finish! From the very start when we were first interested in using Outdoorsy, Peter answered all of our questions, and was very responsive to our many inquiries. Peter was a dream to work with - quick to reply, honest, fun, and spent time making sure we knew how to enjoy our time with Su. The solar power was great - no plug in necessary! Driving was a breeze and the gas mileage was better than I expected. The van has EVERYTHING you need. Just bring your hiking boots and sense of adventure.
This was my first experience using Outdoorsy and I will certainly use this service again. If you’re in Alaska, rent one of Peter’s vans - you will love every minute of it!
FYI: I was able to get an RV endorsement on my State Farm auto policy for $1/day for full coverage.

Amazing experience renting peters sprinter van. I can definitely see nestled renting it again and recommending to friends
Peter was great during this entire process! So thankful to have had this experience. Having the campervan made our trip even more incredible! We loved that it is solar powered and we didn’t have to hook up anywhere and could just park.
Unbelievable experience in the van. Literally the most incredible trip we could have imagined. Peter was a dream to work with. So communicative. He went above and beyond to meet us and make sure we had a memorable trip. Will definitely be working the Peter the next time we come to Alaska!

Peter Mathiesen canceled the booking 6 days before departure. This is an automated posting.
Peter was amazing from start to finish. He communicated with us early and as often as necessary in order to accommodate us and our needs. Everything was just as advertised and the van was fully functional with plenty of extra gear and supplies to keep us safe, warm, and prepared for whatever came our way.

Peter was great from start to finish, he was very communicative and even picked us up at the airport. We loved his Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van, it was reliable, roomy, convenient and to be honest, awesome! My son and I had an unbelievable time exploring Alaska for 8 days, a trip of a lifetime! I highly recommend Peter and Outdoorsy.

The van was great and working with Peter was very easy. The bed was really comfortable and the van was easy to drive (even with one hand, as I had a broken arm).
The van was set up amazingly - all pots, pans, tea and coffee kettles, silverware, knives, plates, etc. I over-packed not realizing everything would be so well set up and not needing to use much of my own backpacking kit. The bed and blankets were perfection - never needing to use the heater despite the 20-degree outside temperatures. The van handled perfectly and we had the best 3-day weekend with perfect weather, perfect van handling and reliability. Definitely made me love Alaska even more than I already do.

We had a wonderful time in Peter’s van. It had everything we needed for a trip up north to Denali and across the Denali Highway. The interior is gorgeous and all the appliances were very reliable. We loved being able to stop off anywhere and sleep in relative luxury. Peter was great to work with, and quick to respond to any questions (although we hardly had any).

We had an awesome trip through Denali, up to Fairbanks and down the Glenn Hwy. The van performed superbly on all levels and its owner is the genuine article— a true Alaskan, super knowledgeable and very helpful gentleman.

Cannot express how pleased we were with this rental. Peter was very easy to communicate with and flexible. Delivered the van to us which made our first day seamless. The van is perfect and outfitted with everything you could need. From tin foil, salt/pepper to a French press we didn’t have to buy a thing but food. The van system is very well thought out. The fridge is solar powered, there are outlets throughout and a ceiling fan to ensure fresh air when sleeping the bed is a queen and very comfortable. He also provided additional sleeping bags, sheets and towels just in case. The van is large but very easy to drive and maneuver. We had a great time driving from anchorage to Denali down to the kenai peninsula.

The owner, Pete, could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We had two small problems with the van and he met us in the road to make repairs. Only a 15 minute delay. He suggested places to stay and delivered and picked up the van at our convenience. We loved the rugged high clearance that let us experience the spectacular Denali Hwy AND the road to Wrangell-St Elias National Park. A great experience!!!

We rented Pete’s van for a week in February and had problems what-so-ever staying warm and safe in below zero weather. Pete is an excellent host, his van has everything you need. At 6’0” tall I could stand up easily In the cabin. There is plenty of room for your travel gear- we brought 4 large bags with winter gear and had room for it all. I fully endorse this rental, it is perfect for two adults!

Peter was very accommodating and punctual in his response time. We took the van out in sub zero temperatures and stayed toasty warm throughout our trip. She drove smooth and was reliable. Four thumbs up!

We had an amazing time in this sprinter - it did not disappoint! We ended up keeping the van a couple extra days and Peter was incredibly flexible and helpful throughout.
We had a great experience with Peter's Sprinter. He is responsible and easy to work about time for pick up and drop off. The van had nice bed, storages and all the appliances worked fine. No mechanical issues. We are missing for the van already.... It was so great trip to Alaska.

Peter was very accommodating and highly responsive. The van itself is very fuel-efficient and easy to drive/maneuver. My family's first trip to Alaska was highly memorable and worry-free thanks to him! I will be renting his van again on our return to Alaska!
