Blue was awesome - he kept us comfy and warm on some cold nights camping. The van was stocked with everything we needed and more (pots, pans, spices, lanterns, chairs, etc.) and had plenty of space for our gear!

What a wonderful experience from booking to drop off! Jason and Kimbo never failed to answer questions via email, chat, or text at anytime during our trip: it was world-class service. Our pickup and dropoff times had to be adjusted for weather events and they were entirely flexible and accommodating. The Sprinter itself was in tip-top shape and performed wonderfully: clean, full of great features, and comfortable in all sorts of weather: from sunny and 75 degrees down to 18 degrees and snowing sideways. A genuinely nice touch: a free six pack of local beer and a bag of local coffee on pickup left in the van. Couldn't recommend them more and we will definitely be renting from Jason and Kimbo again: our trip to Moab was incredible in no small part because of the quality of the Sprinter and their focus on making sure we had everything we needed to make the trip a ton of fun. Bravo to them for being such great owners.

We had a lovely time exploring CO in Blue! Kimbo and Jason were super helpful and wonderful to work with. Blue was easy to drive, well organized, and fun to have at our campsites!

We had so much fun in 'Blue', driving round the national parks of Utah. The van has everything you can possible need, is super easy to drive, and is incredibly cosy when the temperature drops! Also Jason was so helpful in advance, in setting up the van, and when we got back! We will definitely be looking to book again!

All around, a great experience renting Blue from Kimbo and Jason. It felt like a long shot that I’d find a van at all on relatively short notice, let alone one as nice as Blue. All questions were answered in short order and it was a smooth pickup. Mechanically, the van is in tremendous shape. She could go anywhere and ran beautifully. Internally, it has everything you need for a fun adventure. A little bit of wear and tear, but that’s what these are made for! I’d certainly rent from Aspen Custom Vans again if we don’t customize our own before then :)

Thanks for the nice words, Adriaan! We appreciate you taking such good care of the van!

We had a fabulous trip in Blue! Kimbo was so accommodating and available for all of my extra questions before we set out and that made it super easy to be ready to just hit the road when we picked the van up. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need, there was plenty of storage for everything else you might want to bring...and the van was comfy as can be! We escaped far from our everyday stresses and would do it again in an instant!

We rented Big Blue for a 10 day honeymoon road trip and couldn't be happier with the experience. Jason & Kimbo are wonderful people and easy to communicate with. The van is very well outfitted with all your needs, including all necessary kitchen accessories. Big Blue is a beast and drives to backcountry camping sites like a champ. Jason was great about showing us how everything worked before we left and we didn't have any issues along the way. The large water and propane tanks provide plumbed water, a heater if needed, and stove fuel. We are completely in love with Big Blue!

We had an incredible, 2 week trip through the northwest in Blue. Blue was perfect for our needs and made our trip so enjoyable. Jason gave us a tour of the van before we left and it had everything we needed for cooking and relaxing at camp each night. We will definitely use Aspen Custom Vans in the future.

Kimbo and Jason were awesome! They were quick to respond to questions and very helpful in getting the van set up for a solo trip with the kids. 'Blue' is stocked with all the essentials, and was clean and comfortable. We loved dimming the lights for stories before bed (the kids slept until 9:30am- camping!?!) and using the camp mugs for cocoa in the morning. Jason had the van loaded with fresh water, camp chairs, extra cooktop, etc. and even offered to help me pack the van. We can't wait for our next advenutre with 'Blue' or any of the other vans Kimbo and Jason have available!

We took “Blue” for 9 days around the San Juan’s. It was the perfect vehicle for touring & camping with high seats and lots of windows, easy to drive and having the 4 wheel drive capability was great for those harder to reach special camp sites. It came fully equipped with everything you could want or need and more (they even thought of bear spray!!) Well laid out interior and spacious to move around in. Kimbo & Jason were the perfect hosts. Quick to respond to any questions we had and extremely accommodating to a few special requests. The extra local added touches they included were thoughtful and appreciated. We would highly recommend renting ‘Blue’ for your next adventure!

We lucked out. This was a first time using Outdoorsy and our first camper van experience. Kimbo & Jason were super helpful in helping lining everything up and Blue was stocked with virtually everything you could want from camp chairs, to pots and pan, plates, silverware, glasses, french press, etc. The list just goes on and on.

Excellent experience! We are considering getting our own van, and this was a great taste of what it would be like.

We had a great time in Blue! Kimbo and Jason made the whole experience very easy and were very responsive to questions we had while on the road. They have expertly designed the vehicle and it felt as comfortable as home.

I had wanted to try a Sprinter van to see if it would be something I could take out by myself. Big Blue was reliable, easy to drive & set up on my recent photography trip.

We had an amazing experience with “Blue”. Kimbo and Jason are extremely easy to work with and very attentive to any questions or concerns. The Sprinter Van drove great on highway, city and dirt roads and was easily maneuverable. We will look to rent “Blue” again!!!

We really fell in love with this van during our trip, it’s got everything you need to make it feel like home. The layout and design are excellent, and it’s got all the bedding, kitchenware and camping accessories you could need!

What an adventure we had in Blue! We took our family of 4 ( 2 adults and 2 kiddos ages 1 and 4) out in Blue for a weekend in the UT desert. This was our first experience in van camping and can’t imagine a better experience! The van was the perfect size for us... we slept and ate comfortably without feeling crowded. The van was fully stocked with everything we could need (dishes, cooking gear, even lanterns, playing cards, French press, and camp chairs) which eliminated the usual stress of packing for camping trips. Kimbo and Jason had thought of everything! Plus there was tons of storage for the rest of our gear. Having a great kitchen set up with a sink, running water, and a propane stove was awesome for cooking and cleanup. Kimbo and Jason were very accommodating for pick up and drop off as well as with overall communication. Thank you for sharing Blue with us and we hope to take her out again for another adventure!

This was a great way to have a comfortable adventure in a van that could take us to special remote spots in style.

Blue was the perfect rig for our recent Colorado spring skiing adventure. It got us right to the snowy trailhead in the morning and kept us warm and dry at night. The van's amenities were just right-- easy for cooking and cleaning and morning coffee, with enough room to get ready for the day, to store all of our gear while on the move, and be comfortable at night. We'd definitely hit the road with Blue again!

We had a great trip in Blue! Highly recommend Kimbo and Jason's van. Both Kimbo and Jason were very helpful and accomodating.

Kimbo and Jason's sprinter van 'Blue' is the ultimate adventure rig. We took it out for a quick trip but will definitely book again for a longer one. The van has everything you need and is completely ready to go out on the road right when you pick it up. Jason gave us a quick and thorough run down of where things are inside but it is all very intuitive.

Great way to try out a sprinter and see if it's something we want to invest in. Thanks Kimbo & Jason!

It was a great first camping trip for our family of 4 (2 and 4 year old children). We went to Chapman so not too far and the van had everything we needed except food and drinks. Even had a nice size coffee press for morning coffee! Most important. The heat and CO detector worked great.

Our weekend in 'Blue' was an awesome introduction to camper vans. We have been looking at them for a while, and had a great experience. Kimbo and Jason were great at communicating with us and accommodating our pick up and drop off. The van was super comfy and had everything we needed for 3 days off the grid. It was also very easy to drive. I'd highly recommend 'Blue' for any weekend adventure.

Kimbo and Jason were so accommodating and helpful! We got off to a rocky start by losing our car keys when going to pick up the van and having to wait half the day for a locksmith, but they told us not to worry- we could return the van a bit later if need be. The van was beautifully finished and so comfortable. The kitchen was just right for our needs and the huge windows made sightseeing fun! Everything was squeaky clean. What an enjoyable experience! In fact, I wish we could do it again THIS weekend!

Kimbo and Jay were great to work with and Blue was the perfect vehicle for adventuring just outside of Aspen. We took it up Independence Pass to Grizzly Reservoir via the rugged Lincoln Creek Road, which it handled no problem. Loved the kitchen setup and expandable countertop for even more prep space.

We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Communications with Kimbo and Jason were immediate and easy. We took 'Blue' on a long trek through the Tetons, Yellowstone, and the Gallatin River valley and had no mechanical issues. Two 50+ adults and one big dog were very comfortable cooking, eating and sleeping in 'Blue'.

Wow, this Sprinter was incredible. If you need a sturdy Sprinter to get you where are going and a great night's sleep this is the van to rent. All the amenities, a burner and fridge and batteries that lasted forever. Plenty of fresh water. Custom van at its finest.

My son and I rented "Blue" for a 4 day mountain bike trip to Western Colorado. The van had everything we needed and more. Jason and Kimbo were super responsive and accommodating for pick up and drop off. Definitely renting it again soon.

Spending time in 'Blue' was the perfect way to enjoy a long weekend in the desert! Honestly, we left wondering if regular camping will ever feel the same. 'Blue' was very easy to maneuver (even on fairly rugged BLM roads), fun to cook and entertain in, and made our experience feel adventure-filled, luxurious, and special. Thanks to Kimbo and Jay for making it possible for us to enjoy our mountain-biking weekend in the desert with friends in both style and comfort!
