The van was a perfect fit for me. Very comfortable to drive with everything well thought out.

The van was fine. Dealing with Outdoorsy was terrible. Although we uploaded the documents several times and called them, they wouldn't verify our second driver. They were slow to respond and basically refused to verify him once the trip had started even though we had started the process beforehand and it was their problem that he wasn't verified. Their rules make no sense and their slow response was the reason we couldn't complete the verification. Interesting that they don't ask us to rate Outdoorsy. I would give them 0 stars.

We had a lovely trip to Lake George in Karen and Doug’s van. A positive first time RV trip all around. Renting was straightforward and the van was as advertised- clean, easy to drive, well designed and efficient space. Karen reviewed how everything works when we met and answered any questions we had. I felt very comfortable renting from them and confident about using their vehicle. We hope to be returning customers!

Our trip to Acadia with Moby was fantastic! We picked the van up in Somersworth at the Downeast workshop where Doug went over all of the features, how to use everything and he gave us some idea of what to expect. Don’t worry though – even if you forget something that Doug says, there is a very detailed user manual (with pictures!) that goes with you in the van to jog your memory. From the super comfortable bed, to the potent space heater under the passenger seat to the plentiful storage baskets – Moby was a great test of vanlife for us.

This was our first trip renting a Class B rv and it was a great experience for us.
My wife and I along with a 50 pound Lab did a two week trip into New Brunswick and Nova Scotia and had such a great time. We arrived to pick up the van and Doug and Karen were there to meet with us, they explained the layout of the van and answered any questions we had. During the trip we needed to reach out to Karen and she got right back to us with the answer. The layout of the van was comfortable and well thought out - it had pretty much everything we needed. The van was comfortable to drive throughout the trip.

Absolutely wonderful experience with Doug and Karen! Thanks for everything! We were so excited to have the van when a thunderstorm rolled through our campground. Absolutely nothing to worry about! Communication was spot on and I would highly recommend renting this van!

The van rental was awesome. It was clean, spacious, well-organized and planned out. We were able to go deep woods state campground with no power or water hookups for days at a time, confident we had the power to run lights, water, chargers, fridge and stove. Moby allowed us to live our best life.

Karen and Doug were the best hosts and great ambassadors for Outsdoorsy. They were everything you need in a host: welcoming, helpful, informative and supportive. I have some recommendations for Outsdoorsy the company which would aim to keep Karen and Doug in this business. Doug even returned me to my parents' home nearby.Total above and beyond! PS: Moby is a super stand alone vehicle with everything you need and more. Loved the whole experience!!

This was SO fun! The van is amazing, has everything you need and the bed is super comfy! Karen and Doug were great, easy to work with and took the time to show us everything the van had to offer. If you are even just thinking about this rental as an option... DO IT!

Our experience with Moby was the best! Karen and Doug were delightful to work with, and Karen gave a very thorough explanation of the van when we picked it up. The van was extremely clean and well maintained. The kitchen was stocked with pretty much everything you could need - made it very homey! We would highly recommend this rental!

Great way to see the state in peak foliage. Very comfortable and hippy chic. Great details like hit cocoa and spices for cooking.
Karen was really helpful and thorough in preparing us for life in the van.
Will do it again someday!

Great van, created by golden hands- Doug clearly knows his craftsmanship and thought of every little detail- from Britta filter water holder cabinet to miniature perfectly functioning kitchen- just like home- feeling. We were welcomed by snacks and an impeccably clean everything- as we also left it upon return. Thanks Downeast Van LLC for this experience!

Phenomenal experience from start to finish! Booking through Outdoorsy was easy, Karen was incredibly helpful and communicative, and van was beautifully furnished. Everything about this van's interior felt thoughtful and well-designed to maximize user comfort // create a home-y aesthetic. We loved it and will definitely rent again!

Karen gave us a great intro to the features of the camper van. The can was easy to drive, had a lot of storage, and many great features. The van was the star of the campground!

Karen was great to work with! Explained things thoroughly and everything was nice and clean! You could tell their van conversion was well thought out and the workmanship was very good. We would recommend working with them for anyone considering renting or building a conversion van.
