Goldie was great. Got stuck in terrible bumper to bumper traffic over Memorial Day weekend and there were no issues with overheating or anything. Rodney is great at quickly responding to any questions. The only real downside I would say is the suspension felt old and tired, but that was only very noticeable when going down flat dirt roads, highway driving the suspension did fine.

The owner was extremely responsive and helpful when we needed. Everything ran great. For the features in this van, it's a great value.

This rental absolutely made our California trip possible. Goldie runs great and has everything you would need to see the beautiful state of CA. We got to see some of the best beach views; hitting Table Rock Beach State Park, Pearl Street Beach, and Crystal Cove State Park. Ending our journey with a two night stay in Joshua Tree National Park. Thank you for everything, this was an unforgettable adventure.

We had a great time with Goldie! Our family of 4 slept comfortably and the van was clean and everything we expected. Rodney was super great to work with and we’d definitely rent Goldie again for a future adventure!

Rodney was super accommodating and helpful for our rental! The camper van is great and really made our trip so much better! If you're planning on driving around where you're camping i would also see if one of your travelers can also bring a car while it's fun traveling with everything you do have to bring down the top bed/popup every time you drive. Not bad just something to factor in.

We had a great couple days camping in Goldie. It is an older van but it has been well taken care of. Rodney gave a full run down on our departure and was easily reachable if we had any questions. The only negative is the awning pictured was not installed which would have been nice to have. I would rent again as it is a great deal.

The van was in such terrible condition that my friend and I did not feel comfortable taking it, and had to cancel our long-awaited vacation. The van was very dingy, but that is not the issue. It had been in an accident with the last driver and not been fully checked by a mechanic since then—which was clear when Rodney discovered damage on the undercarriage he was not aware of. Further, he explained that the van needed to have oil “topped off” every day or two, and acted as if this is just normal for an older vehicle.
When I kindly apologized to Rodney that I wasn’t comfortable taking the van in this condition, he stormed into his house and disappeared. I never took the van, and yet Rodney has refused to return a single dollar. Do not rent this van, and think twice before you trust Outdoorsy, as it is one month later and they have still failed to get me a refund.

This trip was confirmed then cancelled without any notice shortly after Rodney sent the confirmation. The dates were listed as available although they must not have been.

The RV was as advertised. Kids really enjoyed it and we enjoyed being able to park anywhere and “camp” with basically no setup time. Rodney was fantastic.

This was the first time we tried out van camping and so glad we went with Goldie. Couldn’t ask for better communication with Rodney from before, during and after the trip. Super helpful in getting me acquainted with the van as well.

This was our first venture into van camping and we thoroughly enjoyed “Goldie”. Rodney was super accommodating in pick up and drop off times. He spent time showing us how to use all the features on the van. The van ran great and had plenty of power to climb hills without hesitation. Plenty of room for the two of us for the weekend. The van sleeps 4 but we chose to sleep in the overhead area which worked out great and was very comfortable. It was so nice to have a refrigerator and not deal with ice and a cooler. We loved camping with this van!

We had a great experience with Goldie. Rodney was very responsive, helpful, and informative. He gave us a tour and training on every feature of the van before our trip. We drove 800 miles round trip to Yosemite with no issues. The pop-top creates an awesome space to hang out inside the van. The bed was sturdy and comfortable. This option was perfect for our camping trip. Thank you!

We took the RV up to the Sierras to hike Mt. Whitney and had a wonderful experience. Rodney was helpful and the van was amazing. Goldie made our trip and summit possible!

My group loved this car- we had it for a full month exploring the national parks out west and were sad to say goodbye. It legally seats 8 but 4-6 people seemed to be a really nice use to fit in. Storage is tight so I would recommend packing minimally but if you want, the owner has a trailer you can use that attaches to the back.

Rodney was an absolute delight to communicate with. Every question we had during our month long trip he was there in a heart beat to answer. The van is extremely well maintained. We did not encounter any mechanical problems in our 7000 miles of travel. The interior is extremely comfortable and practical and in very nice condition.
I would highly recommend Rodney and his amazing van Goldy.

We had an amazing trip in Goldie! The seats are incredibly comfortable, which is a win for a road trip. We loved the pop top bed. You can open all the window and let the breeze flow through. We slept very comfortably in there and it was such an advantage to have a fridge and mini kitchen area. One day we were at the beach and it was a bit windy and the kids loved hanging in the van with the doors open. My advice would be to pack light so you dont have to move stuff out at night when you put the beds down. Rodney was awesome to work with. He was very responsive anytime we had questions before and during our trip. This made all the difference on our camping trip.

Goldie was so good to us. The best thing about her is the layout, which is both spacious and efficient. The pop up is clutch and if you’re traveling as a couple, you can sleep on the bottom and open it up just for standing room, like an open-rafter living room. There is easy access from the back and side doors and it comes equipped with a slightly-aged but functional fridge, cabinet space with kitchen ware, a sturdy table, chairs, a camping stove, and bedding. The awning makes for a perfect outdoor lounging space.
Rodney and Lisa were as sweet and accommodating as could be.
