Memories made on trips with Gaylord's RVs

One of the best things experiences I’ve had with a rental company. The truck was perfect, well thought out, and the customer service from Gaylord was top notch! They literally thought to include everything! My son and I did the White Rim Road Trail in Moab and camped 4 nights in the Tacoma and it was perfect! I will definitely be renting from Go Explore It again in the near future!

Took our boys (3yo and 5yo) on their first camping trip in this trailer and had a great time! We were impressed with the offroad-worthiness of the trailer as it made it up a fairly rough road with no issues. Both the trailer and rooftop tent were spacious and comfortable. We had plenty of storage in the fridge, kitchen, and trailer to last a family of 4 for 3 days. The kitchen was very functional with lots of dishes and utensils included. Loved the awning as well for shade and protection from pine needles. We even used the shower once and were impressed by the instant hot water! I will add a disclaimer that we didn't use the heater and didn't draw much from the battery, so can't really comment on those. For what we needed, we had no problems and truly enjoyed the trip! Would rent again.

Great experience. Gaylord did an outstanding job of showing the vehicle when I got there and was very prompt with trip communications throughout the whole process. A+ experience and would highly recommend!

Absolutely everything we needed for the trip was included with the rental, we only needed to buy food for the length of the trip. The car was very clean, very well maintained, and Gaylord was extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided great recommendations for places to visit and trails to explore. I highly recommend it!!

Great road-trip in the Moab area and Monument valley with the Tiger. The van has everything you need for a successful and confortable trip.

This was an such an epic adventure! My wife and I grabbed a ride directly off the plane and went straight to the shop to pick up the 4 Runner. Gaylord had the vehicle locked and loaded ready for adventure. The truck was super clean and loaded with everything as ordered. We would have been able to hop right in and go. However, we sat with Gaylord for about an hour getting the lay of the land and discussing our trip. He suggested many different places and things to see. He was always just a text away with any information that we needed. I would 10/10 recommend Go Explore It to anyone! We will be returning same time next year!

Such a great, comfortable vehicle! The battery operated cooler made keeping perishables cold a breeze and the rooftop tent was very spacious, cozy and easy to operate. Can’t say enough great things about this easy to drive, all inclusive RV!

I rarely take the time and effort to write reviews, but when someone goes above and beyond, I feel I need to make the effort, and this is one of those situations. Gaylord and Gemma were fantastic at every stage, from my initial inquiry through dropoff. They patiently answered all my questions and made many constructive suggestions based on my plans. This was so much more than a vehicle rental -- logistics, personalized itinerary suggestions, practical guidance and more. I was also surprised and extremely comforted that the vehicle included a sat phone pre-programmed with all of Gaylord's contact info in case of problems. Fortunately, I didn't need to use it, but the knowledge that I would have support in a worst-case scenario really helped dial back the stress level. The vehicle itself (4Runner w/FSR Evolution RTT) had a decent amount of mileage on it but was in good working condition and very capable on rough roads. I had not mechanical issues whatsoever. The tent was comfortable and super-easy to open and collapse -- after the first time, I'd say it only took me 1-2 minutes. (Small tip: I'd recommend trying to open and collapse it once before leaving, just to make sure you have the hang of it -- watching Gaylord do it was helpful, but no substitute for hands-on experience.) The kitchen supplies were good, with only one or two minor items I found myself missing, but nothing really problematic. All in all, this was an A+ experience and one I'm hoping to repeat again soon! Thank you!!

We had an amazing time! Gaylord was so helpful, walked us through everything and made sure we were set for a great weekend. He even gave us a suggested itinerary that was absolutely incredible! Could not recommend this more!
