Memories made on trips with Ben Aust's RVs

We had a great time renting this RV. It would be ideal for a small family with little kids (bunk beds) or a couple with a dog like us. Ben is very good about going over everything about the RV. There are no pots or pans (bring what you need to cook), but the basics are covered. I was fine bringing our own bedding. We do that anyway to be comfortable. The memory foam mattress is hard at first, but give it a little time to conform to your body and it is good to sleep on. We went the a few state parks, Moose Lake, Cascade River and Wild River. This size RV fit great at the campsites. Our experience with the dumping of the black water/ gray water wasn’t the smoothest. It took us a bit to get the routine down. Moose Lake State Park doesn’t have a dump site, I wish we researched the park first to know what they have. The only complaint I have is Ben is way down in Belle Plain and it was not convenient to go get or bring back the RV. We would make the trek again to rent his other r-pod (the smaller one) to experience that RV though.

We had a great experience renting Ben’s r-pod. He was very helpful throughout the whole process and made sure all of our questions were answered along the way. The camper is in great condition, had everything we needed and was comfortable. We would definitely rent from Ben again!

Ben was wonderful to work with. He is very responsive to e-mails, questions, and is very accommodating. He went over the camper details thoroughly with my husband upon pick-up and left detailed instructions inside the camper. The camper itself was in very good shape and worked well. We had a few issues with the camper fold out (Murphy) bed. It was rather hard (like sleeping on a board) to sleep on and one person has to sleep next to the front end wall of the camper. This requires the person to crawl over the other person to get out. The hardness of the bed could not be helped as it folds up and any thicker of a mattress would not allow this). My husband ended up sleeping on the bottom bunk bed and I ended up sleeping on the couch. The outlets are not really located in ideal places and I would recommend bringing extension cords. The bunk bed is rather hard to put bedding on (we brought our own bedding) and so was the fold out (murphy) bed. There is no place to hang clothes in the camper. We left all our clothes in the duffle bags and put them on the top bunk bed or below the couch. Ben provided extra paper products (toilet paper, paper plates, salt/pepper, foil, paper towels, etc) which was very generous. We did now shower in the bathroom so have no comment on that, except the bathroom "sink" you would use to wash your hands is located in the shower itself. This is a very nice, like-new camper and everything was in working order; the inside camper arrangements just weren't optimal for us.

We had a wonderful experience renting this camper. Ben made everything easy with his detailed notes and instructions. He took the time to walk us through the little details and made sure that novices like us had everything we needed to get through our trip. Would absolutely rent from him again.

The r-pod was very clean. Everything was just what Ben had described in his outdoorsy description. He was a great help when we had questions by using FaceTime to answer our questions. I would rent from him again!

It’s a beautiful camper! Clean and stocked nicely with some things, much appreciated. Nice large kitchen sink, plenty of storage. Great and timely delivery and set up. Ben was very informative and helpful. Perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids.

Favorite camper we’ve rented so far! Ben could not have been more helpful & accommodating with answering all our questions & timely too. He was flexible with schedule pickup/drop off times when available. So much room, we camped with a 1 & 4yr old and plenty of room with a pack-n-play too. Will rent again!

Ben was great to rent from! Super fast communication, and very helpful. The trailer was impeccably clean too! Highly recommend the r-pod 190 as well as renting from Ben. You will not be disappointed.

Ben was excellent to work with, always quick to respond I appreciated all the extra efforts put into towing safety. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. The camper was A+, clean comfortable and fit out needs perfectly. Thank you again, we will be back.

Ben is great to rent from. He was quick to answer questions prior to our rental and provided a great rental experience from the thorough overview at pickup, the rear view camera and weight distribution hitch for ease of travel and safety and last but not least the camper was great!

Had a great experience with Ben and the camper! We were canceled on last minute by another party and we’re super in a rush to find something similar that would sleep everybody and Ben came through, also was very nice clean and new and pulled great with my 2012 Toyota Tacoma. We took it to Kamp Dels, I would definitely take a trip with this camper again! Thanks Ben and thanks Outdoorsy!

Ben was a pleasure to work with! He spent lots of time showing us the ropes, which made us feel confident once we took off. His RVs are loaded with tons of extras and amenities that make your trip easy and enjoyable. We will be renting again from Ben for our future excursions!
