About Kathy & Eric Leppanen

Hello, We love get-a-ways to any one of the many local lakes to kayak, fish, bike, or hike. Our location puts us within 3.5 hours of Tahoe or the coast, a half hour from Lake Oroville, and and an hour from Lassen Volcanic Park. We are excited to share the pure joy of traveling in this van😁.

Kathy was extremely helpful, friendly, and a joy to work with. She took time to show us the ropes and was super flexible with pick up and drop off times which was greatly appreciated. Renting the van was a great experience and fit our needs. The van was overall very comfortable and easy to use. We would absolutely rent from Kathy and Eric again.

Wouldn’t have had the vacation we did without Hopea! Very clean, easy to drive and fun to use. We went to Patrick’s point and it was beautiful. We had all the comforts tent camping does not include but still with the camping nostalgia. Traveling/camping 6 months pregnant with a 4 year old… it was great to have a comfy bed and a fridge. Owners are sweet and attentive. Looking forward to renting again in the future for another adventure.

We had the best experience renting Hopea from Kathy. The van was equipped with everything we needed from pots and pans to clean bedding to plates and silverware. We drove from Chico to the Redwoods and camped in two different campgrounds. Moving campsites was so simple with the van. We just loaded up our camping chairs and took off. Cooking was surprisingly simple with the gas stove. There was plenty of space for us to prep food in the kitchen and even eat inside when the mosquitoes were bad outside. Thank you, Hopea, for a great trip!!

This wonderful van takes the “rough” out of “roughing it”. It was perfect for our family of four (plus dog). It was so easy to drive and use. It was spotless and thoughtfully stocked with everything we needed for the trip. Kathy was an amazing source of info regarding the van and camping in general. She was gracious about answering any questions before and during the trip. The whole family misses the van and we can’t wait for our next trip.

Such a special and wonderful experience. This little Van has it all - every amenity a family could want- the service and warmth of the hosts was divine. They went above and beyond in everyway and best of all they made sure we knew how to use it all. I cannot give them a higher recommendation. Do not hesitate to rent their perfect getaway Van!
