Michael is an excellent host on all accounts. 10/10 would rent again. Very friendly and timely. Michael will go the extra step and make sure that you will be accommodated with whatever you need for your trip. We took Gus up to Glacier National Park for 1 week and had such a great time.

Five-stars all-the-way. Michael and Jenn run a very professional yet friendly operation. They were attentive, easy to work with, welcoming, and flexible. The Sierra Mule made my trip easy and care free. It operated as expected and was really comfortable.

‘Bess’ was fantastic! We camped at 9,000ft in the White Mountains and we had everything we needed for a perfect star gazing adventure. Besides the basics you would want in a camp van there were many thoughtful touches like a solar shower and plateware/cooking gear. Michael was very easy to work...
