This was a bucket list item for my wife. Picked it up we drove it around and I took her to see a Dark Star Orchestra concert (she's a huge dead fan). We had some issues with starting it up in the morning due to the cold temps in November but Brian was fantastic and drove all the way up to help us out. Pro tip: Elvis likes when you play Suspicious Minds to start up haha. But honestly, quirks are pa…

We had a great trip with incredible weather! The bus is immaculately restored, with a lot of modern conveniences added that make the weekend more comfortable (while still not taking away from the retro feel). Working with Brian was super easy. Would recommend this listing to anyone.

The 4yo, my wife and me took Elvis for a 4 day camping trip on Cape Cod. It was a fantastic experience: to drive the van, to be surprised how well equipped for camping it came and to see all the turning head as we drove by. We flew in and didn't have any campinggear with us, but rest assured, you wont need anything but your clothes. Brian took care of everything you could imagine needing for camping.

On top of that Brian is extremely helpfull in his communication and in making sure the trip will be unforgettable!

Had a fab time with Elvis on our little road trip. He has a few driving quirks but nothing you can't get use to. Wouldn't definitely recommend and do again. So much fun!
