Zane was awesome and the van was perfect! We rented it for a music festival and lived out of it for 5 days and it had everything we needed. My wife and I are both tall people so we were worried about the bed, but we slept diagonally and had no problems with comfort. The bug net was key and we were able to keep the doors open for the entire festival with no critters creeping in. Highly recommended!

I’m glad you had a great time, Richard! Y’all are always welcome to rent it out in the future!

Had an amazing trip around the Chesapeake Bay in the Green Machine! It is perfect for camping and drives very well for an older car. The bed was extremely comfy and I enjoyed all the storage and fun twinkly lights. It was a great first experience in a camper van and cannot wait to do it again!

The van was awesome to stay in for the weekend while I went to Firefly Music Festival! Zane generously provided many things for us to use while on our trip, including cooking utensils, lights, basic cleaning supplies, and more. Zane was very helpful from before the trip even started up until even after we dropped the van back off. He thoroughly explained everything we needed to know about the van upon our arrival. I was able to keep in contact with him during the whole trip and he gladly helped with any questions or problems I ran into. Zane and the Green Machine made my weekend at the festival absolutely amazing!

Yayy! Happy you enjoyed it, Alexis! You are always welcome to rent the green machine in the future!

Enjoyed a short camping trip in the Green Machine. Handled the Blue Ridge Mountains well, even in the rain. Comfortable bed a huge plus. :)

We had an awesome road trip through West Virginia in Zane's Green Machine, and the van is now certifiable as toddler-proof! It was great to drive, both on the highway and on the forest roads of WV, and the compact but convenient layout meant that my 13 month-old could romp around whilst also being in arms reach, to keep him out if trouble. We appreciated Zane's flexibility, relaxed approach and excellent communication throughout, and this has been an excellent first experience with Outdoorsy. We hope to be back for another trip in the Green Machine soon - Life is Better in the Mountains!

Zane was fantastic to work with. The Green Machine is just that, Green, and a MACHINE. We took the van all around the Mid-Atlantic, through windy mountain roads and it never missed a beat. Couldn't recommend more highly.

My 1.5 year old Irish Setter Lucas & I loved our trip in the Green Machine! Zane was extremely helpful in every way. He introduced us to the Machine thoroughly & carefully. He was then available throughout the trip when needed. The Machine is easy to drive & even though Zane describes the driving as being "floaty" at speeds of 65-70 MPH I did not have any problems at those speeds. Zane provides dishes, cutlery & pots & pans. The bed was super comfortable. We spent 3 days in the Pine Barrens at a semi-primitive campground, the rest of the time we stayed with my family in North Jersey & my college roommate in South Jersey. And one night in a Cracker Barrel parking lot :). We were the only ones at the campground in NJ! It was so much fun. And we took a ride on the Cape May-Lewes ferry. The Machine took it all like a champ!

Thank you for your review, Darlene! You were a fantastic renter and the green machine is open to you anytime! I’m glad you had fun!

I loved camping with the Green Machine. And any questions or concerns that I had were promptly addressed by Zane. Zane is a kind, easy-going host who made sure we were ok throughout our trip. I look forward to renting The Green Machine again!

Zane’s answer

Thank you, Amina! You are always to rent with me again. I will also be recommending your great beach camp site on Hipcamp to my renters: Muvaland

We had a wonderful experience camping with the van!! Zane was super nice to accommodate us and explained the process in detail. It’s an older van but we had no problem driving it. It had everything we needed for a short weekend getaway.

Zane’s answer

Thank you, Lilian! I’m glad you had a good time. The van is always available to you and Pat, I hope you enjoy your new home in the area!!
