About Trekker Vans, family-run by Nate and Alisha

Hi! I'm Nate, the proud Founder of Trekker Vans. Growing up amidst the stunning landscapes of Idaho, I was immersed in a family of outdoor enthusiasts, Fema coordinators, and backcountry survival training experts. Adventure isn't just a hobby for me—it's practically woven into my DNA! From trekking and camping to biking, boarding, and diving, I've always been captivated by the thrill of exploring the great outdoors. Alongside my passion for adventure, I've had a knack for understanding how things work, leading me to pursue a BS in Mechanical Engineering. My journey has taken me far and wide, but it was in the vibrant city of San Francisco where I found not only a home but also my amazing wife, Alisha. Our shared love for adventure and comfort sparked the idea for Trekker Vans. With my expertise in engineering and Alisha's desire for stress-free travel, the concept of Trekker Vans was born. Starting with our humble fleet in San Francisco, we've since expanded to Los Angeles, thanks to our dear friend Chris, who manages operations there. This expansion allows for flexible arrangements, ensuring you can experience all that California (and beyond) has to offer. At Trekker Vans, we're on a mission to transform your camping adventures into unforgettable memories. Let's create some incredible experiences on the road for you!

Trekker Camper Vans were exactly what I was looking for.

Nate, the host is super-responsive and answered all the questions I had in a timely manner. The camper van itself was pretty nice--it had the bare essentials and was clean. I was surprised how a la carte it was--if you're considering renting a Trekker van, note that you are responsible for cleaning it thoroughly before bringing it back and that mileage is NOT included in the cost (I think Trekker charges $0.32 per mile or so). There are a ton of add-ons with many of them being basics and in my opinion, feels like they should be provided free of charge upon request.

Great experience! We were first-time van campers, and we'll definitely do it again. Van was clean and easy to operate. Nate was super-responsive and accommodating.

We had an awesome trip with 'our' campervan of Trekker Vans. The communication in advance of our trip with the owner (Nate) went well by e-mail. I would highly recommend to use a Trekker Van again! The price is worth it, we knew what we get and it was a compact but complete campervan to complete our roundtrip for 4(!) weeks.

We had a fantastic experience with the van. Chris gave us a helpful van orientation to help us get a handle on everything. We enjoyed Yosemite and San Francisco using the van!

great experience - contactless checkin/out worked well for us. communicative on questions too. it was good to have a heads up via text messages early in the reservation that we would need to clean the van before returning (the email we received the day before van return detailing this would have otherwise been a wee bit surprising!). will rent again for sure.

Our experience with Trekker Vans LA was great. Chris gave us big support with everything. The van was totally comfortable and everything worked great. The roof tent is amazing. We had an awesome four weeks trip and will rent again with Trekker Van it's totally reliable.
