Thanks Fred! Me and the kids thoroughly enjoyed our weekend using your RV. I appreciate the thoroughness of the introduction / training that we went through a pick up. Take care!

This RV will be an excellent choice for anyone. This was our first RV trip. It was a bit overwhelming at first, but after 1 day, we were extremely confident with what we were doing. Some might say the 1.5 hour tutorial is too much, but after having it, I say I was glad to have it. There was nothing which was not explained.
My wife and I drove to Oregon and then to Washington, stopping at campsites along the way. This was a great hotel on wheels.
You can feel confident with the amenities onboard.
The generator was a nice back up, as we dry camped for a few days. It was quiet and did not use much fuel. The solar panel kept the house items running during the day and the battery was more than enough to work overnight.
The RV drove like a car. Plenty of power and braking was better than expected.
Fred was a great instructor and he knows every aspect of the RV.
You can feel confident with choosing this vehicle for your next camping get away.

We had a great trip, we only drove a little over 100 miles in the RV. It was easy to drive and park. Fred was very thourough with his tutorial on how the RV was to be used. He explained everything in detail and showed us how to use everything from hooking up at the campsite to useing the digital keypad. His instructions were a great help once we arrived at camp, we felt confident to set up. He was just a phone call away if we needed anything.

Our overall experience with Fred’s RV was great.
The RV drives well, the packing up and unpacking was easy. Fred does a great job making you feel confident by the time you leave for your adventure. The cost was a little pricey. Some feedback for the potential RV renters:
The RV had
- pot/pans but NO utensils that could be used with those pots/pans
- paper products as in toilet paper but no napkins or paper towels
- There was no dish soap but a scrubber was provided
- shampoo/conditioner was provided
- 4 folding camp chairs and an outdoor entry rug
- paper plates, plasticware, plastic cups, and plastic knives
- coffee maker/coffee BUT no coffee mugs
- sheets, blankets, and pillows (if you are going somewhere where it’s cold bring heavier blankets)
- towels only for showering so bring your own beach towels
- small outdoor table, DVD player, toaster and all items to hook up in a campsite.
We appreciated Fred in his flexibility and ease in communication- THANK YOU
Hope this helps & enjoy your adventure!

The RV owner was diligent in taking care of any questions we had. He doesn't just rent it out and say, "See ya."

This review is for both Fred and the RV itself. Fred was straight forward and awesome to deal with. He was great at communicating before, during, and after the trip. His orientation of the RV is very detailed and helpful for novice and expert RV’ers alike. The RV itself was great. They have it stocked with essentials, just add food and clothes and off you go. The RV is in really good condition with enough space for myself, my wife, and two young boys. Being a smaller RV on a sprinter chassis it was easy to drive. We drove it along the CA coast with ease (even doing a number of 3 point turns along the way). I would totally recommend this RV and Fred! Thanks for renting your RV to us, we had an awesome trip!

Using Fred’s RV was great, Fred was very communicative before and during out trip, everything in the RV worked great, very clean and if we had any questions, we texted him and he responded ASAP. The only suggestion I would make is that if you are going to do your own cooking bring supplies you like to cook with and also if you plan on using a BBQ at your campsite, bring utensils, tablecloth and maybe some candles :) It was a great hiking adventure in the Ruby Mountains!! Thanks Fred

This was our very first RV experience & definitely won’t be the last. The RV drives smoothly & it felt like driving a large SUV. We drove through Hwy 101 & to see the Redwoods and Oregon coast; the RV maneuvered with no problems. Hook ups were easy peasy, Fred gave us a 1.5 hour detailed orientation. He was also available for any questions & concerns, responds quick to texts/call. It’s a definitely a family friendly RV, plenty of room to sleep. It has everything you can possibly need. Fred was kind enough to provide us with all the necessities (pots, pans, paper products, pillows, flashlights, batteries, & a lot more). My family & I had a memorable trip, it was fun to unplug & enjoy quality time; we are grateful we got to experience our first RV trip with no issues, thanks to Fred’s RV.

This was our first time in an RV and we loved it! The RV was very nice, clean and plenty of room for 3 of us. Fred was helpful and checked in with us during our trip to make sure we didn't have any questions/concerns. I hope we can rent this RV again someday.

Our first time renting an RV and the last. The ride is horribly stiff. The cab is so loud and noisy with the screen door rattling and things squeeking you couldn’t hear yourself think. Freaked out our usually calm dog. Cannot take even a cowboy shower. Impossible to adjust the hot water temp before it runs out. We rented too small a rig for us to be comfortable, but wouldn’t want to drive a bigger one, our mistake. Our test proves RVing is not for everyone.

Fred’s answer

Hi Douglas and thank you posting your review. I am sorry that your experiment with RVing was disappointing but at least the "test" allowed you to make a good decision about the future of this method of vacationing. I would point out that these reviews are designed to provide some insight into a renters opinions related to various components of their experience. Things like how the owner treated them, provided good service, made themself available while you were on the road to mitigate any problems, the RV itself - whether it was as advertised, or otherwise. It is not designed to be a venue to rate your own decisions about how good of a life fit RVing is for you. These reviews are helpful to others to understand whether the owner and their RV is a good fit for their purposes and not to unfairly rate an owner for your not being comfortable with the RV experience. Thank you again for renting my RV. Best wishes.

My husband and I rented Fred's RV for our mini-moon, and we are so happy that we did! Fred gave us a 1.5 hr orientation and always made sure that we asked any questions we had before and during our trip. Our greatest worry at first was the hookups, but after the orientation, it gave us the confidence to not have any issues! He provided almost everything (besides food/beverage lol) we needed for our trip, which gave us peace of mind of not needing to pack/unpack a lot. The RV is very roomy and pet friendly too! We're so happy that we chose Fred's RV as our first RV experience! We'll definitely rent from him again!
