It was our first time using Outdoorsy to rent a camper - and also our first vanlife adventure! We had so much fun in Mochilla, it might have been the best holidays of our lives. Nick and his girlfriend were perfect: good communication along our reservation journey, good reactivity during our trip, clear instructions when we picked it up, etc. The camper itself is easy to drive (note that it is an automatic) and we were impressed of how good they optimized the space inside and how their attention to details make the difference! Thank you again

Awesome experience! The van drives really nicely and all of the systems work well. We didn't encounter any issues, and Nick was very quick to respond to any questions we had. I'd definitely recommend this rental.

Had the best trip in Mochila. Nick and Jess were very helpful and understanding. They put together a really nice welcome basket and we couldn't say enough good things. Would definitely rent again!

Cute van and small so easier to drive in the city, the steering wheel on the other side will take a little bit of time to get uses to.

Hosts were incredible, really friendly and helpful. They have stocked Mochila with everything you need, including handy hiking guides and inspiration from your trip. They were contactable throughout and had a really comprehensive welcome manual for the van.
Mochila herself was great, drove well and handled great on all the mountain roads!
Would rent again in a heartbeat!
