This was a fantastic vehicle for our 16 day trip. It handles smoothly, has room for our two adults and three large dogs, as well as food and camping supplies. We will certainly do this again.

Robert was very quick to respond to questions while we were on the road. The Ram Promaster 3500 was the perfect size for us. Drove and handled beautifully.

My husband, terrier, and I had wonderful adventure in the camper van. We will definitely be contacting Robert again to book another trip. The bed was very comfortable and the camper drove smooth. It was a perfect size for 2 adults and a small dog. Can't wait to see where the next adventure takes...

The van we rented was fully stocked and badass! It also drove really nicely--not like a big RV. If you are considering this van...do it. Robert was super helpful.

I can't recommend this van enough. Robert is a thoughtful, communicative host and I had a great time taking his ride to Cherokee. I'm considering creating my own adventure van and if/when I do, I'll be incorporating many of the design ideas he implemented here. The Webasto heater, the awning,...

Thanks so much to 828 campervan rentals. Robert set my family up with everything for a week on the road, even adding a bike rack. The kids had as much fun playing and sleeping in the van as they did doing anything else the whole week. The van is setup with everything you need, from tie downs,...

Professional and thorough, start to finish. He took 2 hours to go over everything prior to departure. I had to take notes! He built his so he knows it and loves just like my wife who was new to camping did. We took it for a month and didn't want to give it back.
