About Jose Navarro

We are a family of 4 with great love for the outdoors. We enjoy simple kid-friendly camping, especially sites where we can hike, rock-climb or enjoy a nice soak. We are also dog owners, like family, and try to bring them to our adventures.

Great rental and host, can was exactly as described and host was very communicative. Van was very clean and had everything you could think of. For my son and my first camper van trip it it worked out very well.

So amazing & even better than anticipated. We took the van up to the Gila Wilderness. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Enjoyed cooking using the gas stove and our food stayed cold in the Yeti. Bed in the van was nice. My boyfriend loved sleeping in the roof tent.

We enjoyed a wonderful weekend trip with our two granddaughters at Guadalupe National Park in this van and hope to rent it again in the future. Jose and his wife were great "hosts" and have outfitted the van with everything we could have possibly needed-camp chairs, large Yeti cooler that pulls out from the back, great stove, very comfy beds both top and bottom, and of course the swing, which was a big hit with our grandkids. They made sure that we were comfortable with how everything operated (even provided a great "how-to" video) before we started our adventure.

If I could give Jose 6 stars, I would! He is a FANTASTIC host, and made every part of the process smooth and enjoyable. At check-in, he gave a detailed and friendly overview of everything I needed to know about the fully stocked camper van. He even offered a flexible check out time, which I greatly appreciated. And at check out, he went above and beyond-- actually came and picked up the van from me, just to make it easier!

It rained the entire camping trip. Good thing we rented this awesome camper van. 5/5 would rent again!

Jose was super friendly and helpful when checking in/out and the van was perfect for our trip. We drove to White Sands NP, Carlsbad Caverns NP, and Guadalupe Mountains NP without any issues and found great camping along the way. The outdoor kitchen setup was great for cooking and there is plenty of lighting inside to hang out as well. We’d definitely rent this van again.

Here is the review: Amazing! The van, the owners, the whole trip! Couldn't have had a better time. The van is SO easy to drive and so comfortable to sleep in and escape the mid-day heat! The van has everything you need from bedding, kitchen supplies, even a swing! Also, very well maintained and clean. The owners are fantastic, super helpful and responsive (thank you!). I want to rent again!

We had a great experience. The van was the prefect rental for us flying into El Paso. I appreciated that the van was fully equipped with bedding, propane, dish soap and the full camp kitchen. Everything within the van was very well maintained, neat and clean. The owners were incredibly friendly and kind - very easy to communicate with before and during our trip, helpful with food and site recommendations as well! Thank you!

We had the absolute best time in the van! East to drive, comfortable, thoughtfully equipped, great all around. Jose was a pleasure to work with, no troubles the whole way and a really wonderful week around west Texas. Would recommend!

I can’t say enough good things about Jose and Celina’s camper van! It exceeded our expectations in every way, and I was actually sad to return it to them!
