2017 Roadtrek Simplicity
2017 Roadtrek Simplicity
Betsy is a big, beautiful beast of a van, hand-built by yours truly (and a few very talented and generous friends and family members) in summer 2016. I lived full-time in the van for 2.5 years, making small upgrades along the way. She's not only very functional as an adventure rig, she's quite cozy as well. That's the first thing most people say when they see the inside: "Oh, it's so cozy in here!" I call her my little studio apartment on wheels. Because Betsy was my home, there are plenty of luxurious details that you might not find in the standard weekender rig. Below are most of her amenities, but if there's something you're looking for that's not on there, don't hesitate to ask!

About the host, Julie
Cozy and comfy, great for a couple going adventuring, Julie was great and very accomodating
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience with Julie's van, Betsy! We took her to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone NP. Since it was mid October it was quite chilly at night and in the morning (sometimes even a little snow) but the heater was perfect and kept us comfortable. We cooked almost all of our meals in the van - no complaints, the stove and oven are SO easy to use and we had breakfast with a view each morning (which is better than any restaurant!) There is a ton of storage and we never felt crowded or unorganized. A big pro of a van like this is you can park anywhere, in any town, or on the side of any road, unlike an RV. 10/10 would recommend for an unforgettable trip. Julie is an excellent host with great communication, knowledge, and enthusiasm about van-life.
I had the best experience! Betsy was everything promised. Easy driving... perfect space... and best of all I had my “house” with me everywhere I wanted to go. Julie was friendly and accommodating. The van was stocked with everything I needed: pots/pans, blankets, towels, kitchen supplies, Propane stove, water, portable chairs, lights & even bear spray! I highly recommend!! It’s the way to go camping. And with the large front windshield... views were incredible even while I was driving. Stopped several times to watch for wildlife... cooked dinner... then sat outside and ate dinner. Thank you Julie... I had an amazing adventure!

My girlfriend and I rented the van for 7 nights / 8 days to drive through Yellowsone and Grand Teton National Parks. It was the trip of a lifetime, and this van was exactly what we needed. It was very homey, tidy, and actually felt spacious. The van drove extremely with no issues whatsoever. There's additional blankets, pots, pans, french press, stove, chairs, etc. It has everything you could possibly need.

If you want to do Yellowstone and the Grand Teton, the only way to do it is through the eyes of Betsy. 10 out of 10 recommend. She has all you need for a fun, easy, and simple trip. My wife and I enjoyed every minute of our stay. Book now!
Betsy was truly incredible - the perfect camper van for a honeymoon in Yellowstone. Would much prefer to spend two more weeks living out of Betsy than return to real life in the Midwest, but such is life. Comfortable and ideally sized, the variety of convenient little features packed into the van is impressive. Definitely plan to book again in the future.
