John and I live in Napa California where we have a large extended family including grandchildren ranging in age from preschoolers to teens. Frankie, our little 18 pound terrier mix, is a very important part of our family and loves going on adventures with us! John is retired from the Napa County Department of Corrections and I am retired from my job as HR Manager with a non-profit here in Napa. I now work a part-time business from home. We love the California Coast and all the beautiful redwoods of Northern California.
Our Class C Leprechaun is in great condition. It is a clean smoke-free unit with one slide-out to give you more room for eating at the dinette and relaxing on the coach! There are two queen beds with comfy memory foam toppers, one above the cab and one in the separate bedroom. For additional sleeping the dinette makes into a bed that will easily sleep one adult or two children and the couch converts into a bed for one. A solid door that closes off the master bedroom for privacy is an awesome feature that you will enjoy!

About this RV
About the host
Claudia and John were so sweet and detailed! We felt so prepared and welcomed using their RV!
John and Claudia were outstanding hosts. The RV generator stopped working just days before we were planning to use it and they went out and purchased a portable generator to ensure our trip was a success. The RV had everything that we would need and so much room for storing our belongings too. The RV and everything in it was in excellent shape.
We are so glad that you and your family had such a wonderful trip! Thanks for taking such good care of our motorhome!
Professional and convenient with the perfect amount of personal touch.
Thanks Ryan. We really enjoyed renting to you and the family and hearing about your trip! Thank you for the kind words and for taking such good care of our motorhome. You were the perfect renters for our motorhome and we would gladly rent to you again!

We loved our experience using John and Claudia's RV. It was our first time as a family going on an RV trip and we couldn't have picked a better place (Patrick's Point State Park in Humboldt County). Their RV had everything we needed - was very clean, very well organized, beds were very comfortable, RV was roomy. I especially appreciated all of the cooking tools, dishes, etc. - absolutely everything we needed for great culinary adventures after our hiking and tidepooling adventures. Just awesome! The hosts were super responsive when we had questions about how things worked. They also gave us great tips and clear instructions for dry camping (no hook-ups in CA state parks!) which really helped us manage our 5 days on the road. I might recommend, however, as beautiful as the CA state parks are, if you are new to RVing your first trip might be easier at a place like a KOA or RV park. We loved it and can't wait to do it again! Great memories for our daughter's 7th birthday!
Alison we are so happy that your trip was a success and that your daughter enjoyed her birthday trip. Thank you for the kind words and suggestion for "newbies" to camp with hookups for the best camping experience-we agree. We appreciate that you took such good care of our motorhome and would gladly rent to you again!
Claudia made our 1st RV rental totally enjoyable ! She explained all of the pre-rental steps thoroughly and responded to questions very quickly. She and her husband provided a detailed orientation to their RV along with written guides on all of the essentials.The RV was well stocked, very well maintained, and immaculately clean. We would recommend Claudia's "Papa Bear RV Adventures" to anyone who wants a quality experience !!
Thank you John. We are so happy that you and Jody had a wonderful time. It was a pleasure doing business with you and we would love to rent to you again!
We had an amazing time on our trip! Nothing but nice things to say about Claudia and John, they are fantastic hosts who really go out of their way to make sure their guests have everything they need for a great get-away. We mixed it up with "dry camping" at state parks and hook-up camping (water and electric) at RV parks, and both definitely have their pluses and minuses. Claudia and John were always available by phone or text if we had any problems or questions (luckily we didn't really!), and the RV was so well organized and stocked with everything we could need - we really had the most relaxing, care-free week! We traveled about 2 hours per day and set up in a new site almost every night, so we got to explore and also relax. The sleeping spaces were all very comfortable, with extra memory-foam toppers on the main bed and the dinette bed, so we slept like royalty. We would definitely not hesitate to recommend renting this RV - our whole experience was really top-notch!
Thank you Marnie! We loved meeting you and your family. We are so pleased that your trip was a huge success!
