Great experience! Peter made the pickup and return easy. Truck was great. Zero issues. 100% worth it!

Peter couldn't have been nicer to deal with. When the flight time got changed on us he was flexible with the times and dates. The vehicle was perfect for this adventure. Drove like a large SUV and the bed might be more comfortable than ours at home! Most everything we needed was provided and we were sorry to have to give it back after our 10 day adventure

The entire process of this van rental was super easy and enjoyable. The van itself is well-maintained, well-built, it was perfect for a four-day Road trip.

Our dream honeymoon wouldn’t have been possible without this van! It allowed us to enjoy 4 different national parks on our two week trip and made travel and lodging so simple. Peter was very responsive and we couldn’t have been happier!

Peter was an excellent host and the van was perfect for our honeymoon trip to Alaska! Peter was super nice and knowledgeable for recommendations. The van was very clean and well appointed and the bed was super comfy. I would recommend Peter and his fleet to anyone wanting to camp in Alaska!

We have communicated with Peter for two years as our plans were cancelled in 2020. He was responsive and helpful in everything we asked about. His new van was great! Our trip was perfect!

This RV was great. It ran well, was equipped with most of the necessities, but a shovel would have been handy. Peter was also great. He checked in on us during our trip, picked us up at the airport, and was flexible with our return timing.

Thanks to Pete and his van Sue- we had a phenomenal Alaskan adventure! Pete was communicated clearly with me and helped me to conveniently pick-up and drop off the van. Pete showed me all the detail of the van. My 8yr old and I used it to camp out in Denali NP for 5nights and it was the perfect thing! Several people at the campgrounds told me they wished they’d rented something similar.
