About Kate Fahlsing

I’m a screenwriter and playwright that found a home in Silicon Valley as a Creative Director for a gaming company. I’m originally from Michigan and grew up vacationing mostly outdoors as both of my parents are biologists. I dreamed about van life for the better part of a decade and I’m so excited that I was finally able to make my dream a reality. I’ve meticulously curated the look and feel of my camper van, Wilder, and I’m excited to get to share her with others! I believe we should all be spending more time in the wild and being able to facilitate this experience now for other people is a real passion of mine. When I’m not working on game scripts, I love to spend my time camping, hiking, and playing with my two Labrador Retrievers, Ojib + Dune, outside. I'm perfectly positioned in the bay area to make your trips up and down the coast, and to Yosemite, Tahoe, and Big Sur, easily accessible.

Kate was so very helpful and the van was a dream. She was helpful about using the van and her training was invaluable because this was our very first trip!the kitchen had everything we need and the bed was very comfortable!!

Kate was amazing and made sure to show us everything we needed for a fun and successful trip. We loved the van! The bed was super comfy and she thought of all the details to make sure we were good to go on our adventure. The van was clean and was very easy to drive. We had heat, a fridge, water, a stove, a cool van, and a great adventure. Thank you Kate!

Our experience with the RV was amazing. The van was easy to drive even for first-timers. Kate did a wonderful job with it, it's very comfortable and stylish. Kate was very helpful and quick to respond throughout.

We had a great trip exploring the California coast in “Wilder”. The camper van was comfortable, well equipped, and in great mechanical condition. The owner Kate was great to work with throughout the whole process. Her communication with us was top notch which was very helpful. She gave us ideas on places to camp , sites to visit, and dining options in the area. We would definitely rent again from Kate in the future. Thanks Kate for an amazing vacation experience!

I'm obsessed with this van! It is really just so pretty on the inside, is easy to drive, is well laid out, and has been outfitted with all of the necessities to eat, drink, and play. Working with Kate was great, she gave me a thorough overview of the mechanics of the van and we even did a little test drive so she could point out some pro-tips to working in tight spaces. She was also very quick to respond when I had a couple of questions. 10/10 I would recommend and may even rent from her again. :)

Kate was great to deal with! I was nervous going out of state and renting, but she made it a great experience. The camper/van was the perfect vehicle for my trip. Kate answered all my questions up to and after the trip.

We had a great time with Wilder! The van is very cozy and has everything you need for a trip through america. Kate is a really nice host and responds very quickly if you have any questions. We rented some other vans in the past but this one was definitely the best one yet. I hope we will come back soon

First time VAN experience but I am going to be addicted thanks to Kate and her super VAN.
The Van is awesome and impeccable, the inside was even better than the pictures and Kate provided everything we needed (utensils, pans, snaks, towels, etc.). Bed super comfy and kitchen fully equipped.
It is easy to drive even with no experience (like myself) and it makes the trip towards Big Sur very enjoyable.
Communication with the host super good and we had always all the answers very fast.
Last but not least the cleanness was super and everything very tidy.

Kate’s answer

I'm so glad you loved your trip to Big Sur! It was such a joy meeting you and your wife and it was such a wonderful surprise you gave her by booking the van and planning a weekend getaway for her! I can't wait for your next adventure in Wilder. Feel free to reach out if you want any more tips on places to go/see. :-)
