We had an incredible stay on the Blue Bird! This bus has everything you need and more, plus style and comfort. Both beds are super comfy, with soft linens and plenty of pillows. The kitchen was stocked with local coffee, dish soap, hand sanitizer, and every pot and pan we needed. The kitchen knives were SHARP! Extra touches like throw pillows, a scented candle and jade plant made the bus feel extra special. The pop up tent and firewood completed the hangout area in our campsite. Waking up and making coffee in the morning, sitting with the doors and windows of the bus open to the woods was a dreamy experience. Showing up to a campsite without having to bring all our gear was also magical. Ben and Hayette were extremely responsive to any questions, and the bus guidebook had all the info we needed during our stay. We will definitely be renting Blue Bird again, and highly recommend it!

We drove the bus up to Northern West Virginia to check out some family history. It was a fun and unique experience. Ben was easily accessible by text for any questions. The bus got decent gas mileage for such a heavy rig.

Blue is so much fun! Our family of 3 had such a fun time. The inside of the bus was comfortable, warm, squeaky clean, and beautiful, and the owners of the bus were great to work with. The bus’s wood stove and solar battery exceeded my expectations. Definitely hope to rent this one-of-a-kind bus again! I highly recommend it.

The bus was awesome! Fully decked out with tons of storage, everything you need to cook, and a comfy bed. Drove way better than expected as well. An absolutely fantastic trip! Highly recommend.

Have a question?Get answers directly from the owner

Q.I have lots of questions about the interior, the solar, the wood stove, etc.!
A.
We typed up a "renter's manual" with details of all things Blue. Call/text me at 828-772-7115 and I can forward it to you. Can also email me at bdwilliamson1@catamount.wcu.edu.

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
A.
I'm as flexible as my work schedule allows for in-person hand-offs. I prefer this to make sure the driver knows the intricacies of driving Blue. Drop-offs are much easier and I can be very flexible there. We're happy to work with you on this!
