Are you considering the Van Life but aren’t sure if it’s right for you? Or perhaps you not sure what size van to get or which brand. Campervan Rental companies are growing like mad with new rentals popping up all over.
Renting a campervan is a really fun way to take a break from the usual hotel rental. For about the same cost you can have your room on wheels and take your road trip to a whole new level.
Outdoorsy Van and RV Rentals
Outdoorsy is a unique van and RV rental company and offers tremendous value and variety that you won’t find anywhere else.
Outdoorsy is like the Airbnb of campers. Owners can put up their campervans and RV’s for rent. All the insurance headache is taken care of through Outdoorsy’s included massive insurance policy that protects both the owner and the renter.
What I like most about Outdoorsy is the tremendous variety they offer. From top of the line professional van builds to more of a DIY setup you’ll have plenty to choose from.
There is no better way to test out #Vanlife since you can rent a van that might be similar to how you want yours built.
Campervan rentals start at about $80/day but expect about $160 for a fully loaded van.

They are very reasonably priced from $100/day to $130/day depending on the size.
Vintage Surfari Wagons

They also offer the newer Eurovans as well. But if it were me I’d stay classic my friend.
Rates start at $130 but vary depending on time of year.
Roamerica out of Bend Oregon serves up some rather tasty van rentals. They have the Sportsmobile style pop-top as seen in the picture as well as the more modern Ford Transit van.
