Meet Ozzy the Campervan from Ozark Vanderlust!

Howdy, we're Stephen & Tristen! We were inspired to create this van after renting a similar one for a road trip in Oregon. We had a blast spending two weeks in that van, decided we wanted to do something similar within the first week, and a year later bought our own to embark on our own campervan journey.

Avid backpackers and adventurers ourselves, we've been all over the world and the U.S., but love calling Arkansas home. The Ozarks have a special something we haven't found anywhere else, and we'd love to share that with you.

Whether it's camping at the Hawksbill Crag trailhead overnight so you can be there at sunrise, hopping between swimming holes in the summer, parking next to little-known waterfall trails for easy access in the spring, we know you're going to enjoy what Arkansas has to offer with us.

Why a minivan? Minivans are perfect for stealth camping in urban environments or out on the road. Our van fits in normal parking spots and has tinted windows and (coming soon!) blackout curtains to help hide your lights and give you privacy. It also gets great gas mileage compared to larger Class B vans and especially RVs, and is much easier to drive. No, you can't stand up in it, but that's just about its only limitation. Our van doesn't have obnoxious branding plastered on it for maximum stealth.

What's included

Here's what's included in our rental. If you have any requests or needs, please let us know!

• First Aid Kit
• Battery-powered jump-starter

THE BED
• Full-size mattress (4 sections of 4 inches of latex memory foam) with durable covers. Or, opt to bring your own inflatable camping mattresses (and/or sleeping bags) to put on the bed frame to save precious space in the van and add more casual seating space inside. Let us know your preference!

• 5-gal solar shower
• Phone/text support during the rental if you have questions about the van, want suggestions on where to go, etc.

*Privacy curtains and bug screens coming soon!*

Recommendations

There are tons of beautiful places in and around the Ozarks of Arkansas (and Missouri!). Our favorites include exploring the Buffalo National River area as well as the Ouachita Mountains, heading towards Eureka Springs or Hobbs State Park at Beaver Lake, Devil's Den State Park, and more. We'll include nature guidebooks in the van that cover Arkansas waterfalls, the Ozark Highlands Trail, Scenic Spots of Arkansas, and more, as well as detailed OHT, BRT, and Arkansas Campground maps.

There are plenty of state parks in Arkansas and lots of quiet trailheads and backcountry road pull-offs to park at and explore from. We're already excited about your trip and would be happy to provide recommendations.

Other things to note

• Just remember that this is NOT a 4x4 vehicle! It's a FWD minivan! Dirt roads are fine, but if you go faster than 20-25mph and hit a pothole, of which there are many in Arkansas, you're gonna have a bad time. Avoid giant puddles in the road or even areas that look muddy. WE have even gotten the van stuck before, and it's a pain to get out since there's not really anywhere to hook tow chains to. Take it slow and enjoy the ride!

• Calm pets welcome, but the hard floor in the back is a little too slippery for our Aussie; plan on freeing up the front or back seat for Fido.

• NO SMOKING or vaping in van!

• No Arkansas restrictions -- you can take the van anywhere in the U.S. Albuquerque and Denver are both 12 hours away!

The camper van was great and our hosts were awesome. We were provided extra bedding cause the temperature was unusually chilly, everything was clean and ready to go. All we could ask for and more. Thanks so much!

Not only was this van a clever use of space, it was also extremely efficient and suited to our needs. The owners went out of their way to manage a last minute reservation for our work situation. Would definitely rent this van again and have already shared it with several friends. 5 gold stars for customer service and another 5 stars for ingenuity. We forgot to take any photos, but know that if this van could talk, what a story it could tell. Thanks Ozark Vanderlust...until we meet again!!!

My friend and I rented their van for the Backwoods music festival at Mulberry Mountain and let me tell you..we had the time of our lives! Tristan and Stephen we're incredibly helpful, accommodating, and all around amazing people! Especially when I missed my flight, was stressed and had to reschedule the pickup time, the two of them were wonderful to work with! I can't stress how awesome these two are and how absolutely kitted their van is! Nice work y'all! 11/10 would recommend. Can't wait for next year 🤙

Thanks so much for the stellar (and first) review, Stephen. And thanks for taking care of our rig on its maiden voyage. Come back to Arkansas in the spring or fall and explore a little more!
