RecommendationsWe are located 45 minutes North of LAX Airport in Oxnard, California.
Our Van Pickup Time: After 10 am and Drop-Off time: Before 4 PM.
Things to do near us:
5-10 minutes from three beaches -Silver Strand Beach, Oxnard Shores Beach & Hollywood Beach.
15 minutes from Ventura Pier and Ventura Fairgrounds.
20 minutes from the Rincon Ocean Parkway (camp on a sea wall with great surf)
25 minutes from Lake Casitas (boating, fishing and camping year-round)
30 minutes from Ojai Valley and the Sespe Wilderness (backwoods camping, hiking)
2 hours from Big Bear Lake (mountain town and ski / snow / lake resort).
4.5 hours from Sequoia National Park.
6.5 hours from Yosemite National Park.
***Disneyland is only 1 hour and 40 minutes away!! And Magic Mountain (a rowdier theme park) is only an hour away. The list goes on and on. Getty Museum, Hollywood, Santa Monica Pier, Universal Studios, Mammoth Ski resort... to help out, we've stocked the Bear's book shelves with travel guides and local nature books to give you a long list of places to explore and research.
Other things to noteWhen you pick up our van, we will have the gasoline tank, propane tank, diesel heater tank and the freshwater tank filled up. The grey water tank will be empty. When you return the vehicle, we only expect that the vehicle gas tank is filled, and the gray tank is emptied.
Tips for a great trip:
Leave the heavy luggage at home. Pack light. We have a good amount of storage for a campervan, but it always fills up FAST.
Try not to over fill the Fridge. It works well to keep your items cold but overcrowding it interferes with its refrigeration abilities.
Soapy water ONLY down the sink. Food headed that way will lead to clogged plumbing and bad smells :(
Please find another van if you’re headed to Burning Man, Coachella, or any music festivals. Also, no towing please. You will need to purchase Outdoorsy’s insurance. Binders are not accepted. No smoking, of any kind, is allowed.Our best friend is Smokey the Van Cat, but SMOKING of ANY KIND isn't allowed. If our van is brought back smelling of smoke (other than campfire smoke) a $150.00 extensive cleaning fee will be added.No off roading/ 4X4ing. This is a front wheel drive vehicle suitable for hard top roads or stable dirt roads leading to camp sites.

Meet your host, Robert

Hi all.
We started On the Trail Adventures Inc for outdoor enthusiasts like us. Our love of the mountains, backpacking, surfing, kayaking and pretty much anything outside cities inspired us to build rustic vans and share them with the public. Rob is a California boy while Luz hales from Colombia. We are both health care professionals, grandparents, trail bums and mountain goats (not necessarily in that order). We have melded our lifelong hobbies into our van building: carpentry, wood carving, graphic design, backpacking, mosaic tiling, sewing and more. Looking forward to meeting you, and you meeting our Van :)
Cya soon,
Rob and Luz

The trip on Rob’s van camper was one for the books! Everything was thought of and they were even able to install a third seat for our car seat and provided some fun coloring books for the trip! Highly recommend 🙏🏻🙏🏻

Rob and Luz were amazing hosts and their van is a work of art. It is an Airbnb on wheels, I’ve never seen anything like it. They thought of everything you could possibly need to ride in style and comfort. Fully functioning shower, toilet, kitchen, heating, air, power, water, shade, chairs, tables, all the necessities and more. They are pet friendly and let us bring our pitbull on his first camping trip. The best feature is the wooden deck they built. It’s on top of the van and is the chillest spot ever and will make whatever view you have even better. Your camping neighbors will be envious. 10/10 will rent again.

What an incredible experience on our first outdoorsy trip! The Bear Promaster was so awesome and exceeded any expectations we could have had! This Camper van has it ALL!! Even more than we could have thought of they did! Rob and Luz were fantastic and made everything as smooth as could be and the van is so beautifully detailed it made our trip a dream, we will definitely take the Bear Promaster back out and appreciate how easy they made everything! Thank you so much, you guys have made a gem, until next time!

Q.Is your van difficult to drive?
If you can drive a car you can drive our van. We also have a rear view camera that gives you a better view of whats behind you than you have in your own car.

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
Normal pick-up and drop-off times are between 11am and 4pm. We can discuss flexibility with those times ( depends on our current schedule at that time).

Q.Is it tricky to operate the different systems in the van?
Not at all. We have a YouTube walkthrough/ coaching video you can watch before renting. We also have added an Amazon tablet with 1-minute instructional videos that will be going with you on your trip. You can reference it at any time on your trip (no internet connection needed).

Q.Can I bring my pet on the trip?
To Bring Your Buddy Option: There is an add-on fee of $75.00. Trips over ten days = $10/day. ATTENTION: We take great care in keeping our van clean and fresh for all our guests. If the van is returned with any unpleasant odor from urine or feces, mud mess, or excessive fur all over, a $150.00 extensive cleaning fee is charged. There are lint rollers, brushes, and cleaning supplies onboard. Please also note that any physical damage to the van caused by your pet will be appraised separately.
