Absolutely loved this vehicle! It has everything you need to have a memorable trip. Took it to Big Sur and was able to enjoy some beautiful views while cooking lunch and dinner! Christopher was very helpful and even gave us some recommendations. He’s a very selfless person and really wants you to enjoy your trip. I will absolutely use this camper again when I come back to Big Sur!

We had a great time renting Gypsy. It was fun and easy to drive and had everything we needed to camp for a few days. Monk was a wonderful host. Showed us the ins and outs of his van. His enthusiasm for his rig was infectious and so we went off with a positive experience that definitely lasted though out our trip.

Christopher's minivan was well stocked with necessary camping equipment and a pleasure to use. Christopher was a great communicator and very thoughtful and accommodating. He made everything very easy.

This was my first Outdoory experience and I could not have picked a better one. Christopher was so communicative and accommodating, and the van was easy to drive, clean, and stocked with all the essentials. I had a phenomenal time adventuring around Big Sur!

Christopher's Promaster City conversion was awesome!! My girlfriend and I took a long weekend trip down the coast to Big Sur and Gypsy was a blast. Really cool micro-camper conversion so you can park it anywhere, yet spacious enough for up to two mid- to small-sized humans (might get a little tricky if you're taller than 6' or so). I even had a surfboard (6' shortboard) in tow, which fit really nicely in the front passenger seat when we were parking and hanging out in the back. Christopher is a super nice guy and communication was easy and seamless. Would definitely recommend!

We love Gypsy so much! She is super easy to drive and even more beautiful in person. Christopher has equipped her with everything you might need and more. Not only that, but everything inside is of the best quality. We had such a good time and if we could, we'd love to trip with Gypsy again. Highly recommend!

Christopher could not have been more accommodating and helpful. When a weather system moved in at my destination and temps were expected to be in the 30’s at night, there was no question that tent camping at Yosemite was not an option for me. And it’s so hard to get campsite reservations there that I was not going to cancel my trip. With 15 hours notice, he communicated everything I needed to know and got Gypsy ready for a 7:30 am pickup. It is extremely well-equipped! All I needed were my clothes, some food and sleeping bag. Oooh the wool Pendleton blanket was so warm and I would not have survived without it. I slept so well on the futon, which I didn’t need to unfold. It was snug and comfortable...perfect for one person. The Sirius radio was great to have on the 4-hour solo drive....even longer on the return trip when a crash caused a long delay. With the subwoofer blasting, I sang through two decades of tunes and time didn’t crawl as slowly. Drop off was quick and efficient. I’ve considered buying a campervan but as long as Gypsy is available, the decision to rent is made easy!

Micro-camper, macro-luxury! Christopher has tricked Gypsy out with everything you need to hit the road in style - think Glamping on Wheels. We took Gypsy on an epic 10-day road trip to the PNW - easy to drive and we got great gas mileage. Christopher’s communication was fantastic and the pick up and drop off went smoothly. I’ll leave Christopher to share Gypsy’s secrets and Gypsy to reveal her/his magic. You will not be disappointed and we will certainly consider renting again!

Thank you Christopher for making our first van experience great. My wife and I took Gypsy down the coast to Morro Bay for three nights with our dog; it was wonderful and weird to show up at our campsite and not have to setup anything. Christopher keeps Gypsy pretty well stocked so it kept packing to a minimum; coffee, check; salt/pepper/olive oil, check; wine opener and wine tumblers, check; lantern, check; the list goes on. Gypsy is compact and easy to drive and with the solar panel, we never worried about running out of power; kudos to his buddy at Cascade Camper for putting together a well thought out, organized camper van. Coordinating pick up and drop off with Christopher was easy and we felt safe leaving our car in his neighborhood. Thank you Christopher, we were super happy!

Christopher was a fantastic host and Gypsy was awesome - super comfortable, full of nice touches, and had all the amenities we needed. Christopher was extremely responsive and very accommodating of our schedule. Definitely a great way to see the all beautiful spots CA has to offer!

Total 5star experience! Christopher’s Gypsy Van is well appointed with all the essentials & then some! Christopher was very responsive & set us up above & beyond with a double sleeping bag, beach chairs & awning. This was our first time giving the “van life” a whirl, we had a blast, and having such a wonderful van made for epic memories! Thank you Christopher, come see us in Colorado!

Outstanding vehicle, compact and well-appointed. Really comfortable bed, cool sink with 5 gallons water, 5V USB and 120V Ac power, solar (so all that stuff keeps working no matter where you are). Immaculate and clean, everything in perfect shape.

We had a terrific experience in Gypsy for a 5 night road trip. The van is a perfect fit for two (I had a 4 year old side-kick), with tons of upgrades like running water and sink, an electric cooler, vent/fan, solar power supply (which never dipped below 80% full charge), butane stove and all the supporting gear to make it truly turnkey. My ONLY regret is that I brought my own duplicate gear "just in case", but I didn't end up using a single thing (except for tent and ground pads for a couple nights under the stars). Next time I'll show up with just a bag of food, a change of clothes, and be on the road in 10 minutes. It's a very new vehicle, rides great and makes setting/striking camp super fast with doors and hidden storage everywhere. Chris was great to deal with, very fast and accommodating. I'm already planning the next getaway for my wife and I!
