RecommendationsEmbarking on a scenic drive up the picturesque West Coast of Vancouver Island, soaking up the awe-inspiring beauty of its beaches, and venturing further north to visit enchanting campgrounds have undoubtedly been some of the most unforgettable experiences of my life. I'm excited to share these exceptional opportunities with fellow travellers who are exploring this breathtaking part of the world.Other things to noteIn order to preserve the availability of the van on Vancouver Island, it is important to restrict its use to this area. However, if you have a desire to venture out to the nearby Gulf Islands, I am open to negotiating an additional cost to accommodate your taking the van to the mainland.

The van was great and communication was mostly easy. The van drives great and had no mechanical issues. My only qualm is that the stove was a little broken (without any pot stand) which made for difficult use and there aren't any curtains

Great camper. Easy to drive, comfortable bed, even for myself who is 6 foot 5/ 196cm.
Good fuel economy and easy to maneuver.
Brandon gave us some great tips for where to stop on route to Tofino and was easy to deal with in general.

Overall I had a good time staying in the van. I just don't think the 100$ cleaning fee was fair, since I found small dead flies in between the dishes and a few other things that weren't quite clean for a 100$ fee! Also the right window and door locks sometimes won't work properly.
The trip itself was great and I had a very good communication with Brandon. I just think the price was too high for the inconveniences above.
