We had a wonderful road trip and the host James was super to work with.

James is an exceptional communicator. Quick to respond to any of my planning questions. Some items that may help with your trip planning. We took the Van to Yosemite and timed the Waterfalls perfectly. The Van had enough Solar/Battery to survive 4 days parked on the Valley Floor without needing to run the engine. We skipped using the hot water heater or the heater to preserve the battery - not sure it was necessary. If you go to Yosemite in the Spring, I recommend taking Bikes as the shuttle service is spotty. Currently, the van does not have a bike rack but it does have a hitch so that may be something you could add with James help. I am glad I printed the handbook James has on his Husky Vans Website so I could reference many helpful systems tips - the delivery day is hectic so having a written copy of what James reviewed came in handy. Thanks again James for a memorable and fun vacation in Sunny Ca!

Everything went well - van performed as promised - James was easy to work with, delivered and picked up the van. I would rent again.

My experience with James and his husky van were absolutely amazing. From the get go and throughout the trip, he was amazingly communicative and responsive. The van is clean, drives beautifully, and is everything I could have hoped for and more. I’m already looking to book another trip!

The van is in great shape, very well appointed, and cozy. It’s thoughtfully designed and built for maximum comfort and joy! It was cold and windy on our trip but van was warm enough for us not to turn on the heater. And James is a great communicator and easy going! We’ll definitely rent the Husky van again.

James was easygoing, personable, communicative, and responded quickly to our few questions. The van has really thoughtful details (wireless chargers, iPad set up for movies in bed, and a power setup/configuration that was user friendly and no worries about running out of power). The van was easy to drive and maneuver despite its size. Everything was as listed. Overall, a great experience! Highly recommend!

The van was great but the only problem was an extreme gas smell that occurred off and on while driving right on day one, but extreme during the usage of the heater which we then used only about 2 hours because of the smell. Caused headaches and wheezing. So because of the extreme cold we spent most nights in a hotel. James was great.

Husky Vans was an incredible experience. We took the van down to Death Valley National Park and got an intimate experience with this van in one of the most remote places.

First time RV renter here. I would definitely rent James’ van again. It was a perfect way to experience van life with a road trip to SoCal.

ames was extremely responsive in answering my questions in advance of the trip. He even let us stop by a week ahead of our trip so we could check out the Husky RV. The RV itself was spotless. Driving it was very easy (backup cameras, blind spot detection, great side mirrors, and easy cruise control. All of the electronics and systems were simple to learn (James walked us through everything) and also provided a one-page quick-reference sheet. We drove down the CA coast and it was so easy. A fabulous experience and we would definitely rent this RV again. Thank you James, Outdoorsy is now our go-to RV rental website!

We had a wonderful first experience with Outdoorsy. James was an excellent host. It was a pleasant, easy experience from pick up through delivery. The RV itself was clean, comfortable and charming. We had everything we needed at our fingertips. We are looking forward to our next adventure with Outdoorsy.

Best road trip ever! From day 1 to the last day, James and his wife, Gemma have been so helpful to us with any questions or concerns we had. Very fast communication and superb customer service from James! And as far as the vehicle goes, one of the best I’ve ever driven. The lane assist was very helpful especially when driving along Portland. And it even tells you when you have been driving too long. Me and the wife were cooking throughout the trip, and the wifi chargers and the tablet to watch movies on were just consultations. Oh and the heater and the water heater for taking showers, superb: will definitely do business with this couple again.
