We love getting off the beaten path, and camping in the wilderness...which is something you can't do with a large we purchased a nimble Ford Expedition and converted it to our style of camping that can take you almost anywhere you want to go offroad in the BLM and Forest Service areas, once that you can sleep in dry and comfortably, and one that you can set up camp and take it down easily and quickly. And, we've decided to share our "Overlanding Expedition" with you as well. Shoot us a message to ask us any questions you like, and make sure to book it before it gets rented out to other awesome like-minded folks like yourself! :-)

We're pretty "Zen" about the whole thing. This is a vehicle built to enjoy...and in the process of enjoying, sometimes accidents happen. It's been well-loved, and there's already a few scratches and dings on if something happens while you have huge issue...just let us know and we'll work it out! We're pretty easy-going...just treat it as well, or better, as you would your own vehicle, and I'm sure we'll be good. :-)

We had a great time camping in McDowell Park for the '23 Dawn to Dusk Mountain Bike race. The vehicle was the perfect fit for the adventure.

We had a great trip touring around the state of AZ in the camper SUV! The hosts were awesome to deal with and would highly recommend renting from them. We will forsure be repeat renters if we return to AZ for another road trip.

Kevin was great to communicate with. He goes above and beyond for providing detailed information regarding his vehicles. We unfortunately had a mishap with our first rental but he was quick to help us out and get us another vehicle so we could continue our trip to the Grand Canyon.
