Ramsie is the perfect vehicle for two. She'll take you to the snow, to the mountain bike trailhead (with two bikes), to Burning Man or just to the closest beach. Equipped with a gas-powered stand-up kitchen including a 22 liter fridge, 350W of solar power, a heater, TV with hdmi output and plenty of room for storage, you can pile in with whatever you need. Bring your pets, bring your sense of adventure!

All the essentials are included to get you on your way: bedding, a full tank of propane, 14 gallons of filtered water, kitchen amenities, 110V AC & USB outlets and an air conditioned, comfortable drive.

I spent a year traveling the North American continent in a van which means I can share some sweet camping spots and travel advice to maximize your adventure.

Included with your rental:
- Bedding (Sheets, 4x pillows, down comforter)

Recommendations

Get off the beaten track! Ramsie will take you anywhere you want to go and even to those places you never thought you'd end up. She's comfortable off-road, will handle the snow in her snow chains and keeps her cool in the summer.

www.VanUp.us Van life is more than a hashtag - it is ultimate freedom. Go wherever you want, whenever you want with all your toys and do it on the cheap. I traveled full time in a van for over a year and now I cannot live without one. It lets you travel without making any plans beyond what you're going to cook for dinner at the camp you find and how amazing the sunset might be. I want people to experience the freedom I feel whenever I hit the road and open their minds to the possibility of travel on four wheels.

Couldn’t have had a more incredible time with Ramsie! The perfect adventure van, she was easy to drive, had a place for everything, and I didn’t want for anything (except maybe a shower 😂). Dan was a super responsive host and did a great job with explaining everything. Would absolutely rent this van again!

Ramsie was everything I needed for a long weekend in the Sierras! Comfy bed, easy to drive, and equipped with everything I could possibly need. Can't wait to take it on another adventure soon!

Dan was super helpful, patient, and flexible both with pickup and drop off. Ramsie has everything you need and was great to travel in. Highly recommend.

Have a question?Get answers directly from the owner

Q.Where should I camp?
A.
Our team has travelled all over the North American continent and we've mostly camped for free the entire time! Not only do we have an amazing database of campsites we can share with you, we also have some great adventure/sight-seeing tips for most regions throughout the US.

Q.How does insurance work?
A.
If you have your own auto liability policy (very likely if you drive a car in the US), that is all you need to rent with us. That means no daily insurance costs! We encourage you to double-check with your insurance provider that your coverage extends to rental vehicles. Don't have your own policy? We have a solution for that too, get in touch and we can walk you through the process.

Q.How reliable is Ramsie? Will she keep me safe on my journey?
A.
Ramsie is surprisingly youthful for her age. She has a few rough edges on her exterior, but don't judge a book by its cover. Under the hood, she is a well-maintained machine. She undergoes thorough mechanical inspections before and after every rental and so far, she's looked after everyone she's met. We intend to keep it that way.

Q.What is Ramsie like to drive?
A.
Ramsie is a big girl, measuring 8' wide, 8' high and 17' long. The size provides comfort but can be understandably intimidating for anyone who isn't used to driving bigger vehicles. Not to worry! She drives like a car with soft suspension that offers a smooth ride. There is a back-up camera, windows all around for visibility and large wing mirrors equipped with blind spot magnifiers. You'll soon feel right at home behind the wheel.
