Karen was super nice before and after the trip. She showed me everything around the van but fear not: if you forget something, there's a detailed user manual with pictures and everything you need to know.

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.

Q.How do the electric, water and sewage hook up work while setting up at the campground?
20A power can be hooked to the van via an external connection to both power all 110V appliances and to keep the van 12V system topped up.

Q.Is the solar system sufficient to power all our needs?
The solar system will keep all the 12V systems powered assuming you are diligent about conserving power - turn lights off when not needed, don't run heat with the doors open, etc. Winter months may require some charging from the engine if light conditions are low or the panels are covered in snow.

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
You have the option of picking up the van in either Portsmouth or at our workshop in Somersworth, NH. C&J Bus service provides airconditioned, WiFi enables shuttle service from Boston Logan airport to Portsmouth.
