Hi there! I'm Caroline. Though based out of Austin, I work remotely as often as possible, often jumping between #vanlife and house swaps. I love travel, and you can follow along on my adventures at instagram.com/crfabacher

She ain't the sexiest build, but she's fully capable and ready to deliver. With sleeping capacity for two, a full kitchen, and a bathroom, you've got all your creature comforts at hand. You’ll love your trip so much that you're going to want to buy her. How do I know that? Because it happened to me. A couple months after taking a trip in this van in June, I was able to acquire her from her previous owner and Outdoorsy renter. So, although Tootsie doesn't have any reviews yet, she's no stranger to Outdoorsy and neither am I!

We had an excellent trip going to Big Bend with Tootsie - she is functional. However we had a terrible experience with the owner, and we strongly don't recommend renting. We were unfairly charged a high amount of extra charges when returning the van, primarily some maintenance costs that should have been assumed by the owner. We honestly felt like cash cows and this very much tainted the memory of our trip. Caroline was very responsive before and after the trip to make the cost as high as possible, but she was not actually handling the renting. Be aware that you cannot rely on the information provided by her assistant, in particular related to the return form.

Caroline’s answer

There were no maintenance costs assessed for this rental. There were damage costs assessed for this rental.

OMG I had the most amazing camping experience in Big Bend National Park thanks to Tootsie. Went in the dead of winter with freezing temps outside and Tootsie stayed nice and toasty (she was plugged in). I did one slightly warmer night of remote camping and still felt very comfortable. I slept like a baby. She Drove easily on rocky roads and even some very light snow. Everything was functional, great speakers to jam to. Though I couldn't figure out how to turn off the outside speakers, so some of my neighbors might have heard the music too. Microwave works if plugged in, otherwise I used the gas stove. Everything I needed and more!

I am so glad we rented Tootsie for our Big Bend trip. She was everything we needed as 2 people doing something very new. Between Caroline & Lauren, we were well taken care of & they were very responsive to questions. We have never worked with a camper before but orientation / walk through gave us all the info we needed as to operation of hook ups / heat etc. This trip was much easier than I would have thought. Although she looks huge when you first see Tootsie, she is very comfortable to drive and doesn’t feel top heavy. Perfect size kitchen / bathroom / beds / storage for 2 people. I believe we got about 16 miles per gallon. There is no spare tire. There is a bike rack but only for 1 bike. If I get back to Austin I will be renting again! We ran into many on the trails that were jealous of our camper.

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
A.
It is important that we do drop off and return during daylight hours to be able to walk you through all of the features and make sure everything is clean and working and in good order. If you would like the ability to do a walk through the day before your trip (optional ability to load the vehicle the day before), you may purchase an "Early Pickup" add-on. This fee both allows you to do a walk through before pickup AND pick up the van on the day of your rental before 9 a.m.
