Fantastic!! At 75 years old, our first experience in a camper and was terrific! No checking in at hotel, no loading baggage in, just park, build fire, relax and bed down!! Best sleeping we have had in long time! We will definitely do it again!

1) Robert is awesome! Knowledgeable, helpful, and full of tips. 2) The van is perfect for a novice (or it has been 20+ years) camping. Or, if you are just done sleeping on the ground. 3) All the basics are included so it is all-around fab. Show up, load up, and go!

Love the SUMP VEE we rented. Fantastic build. Very comfortable with excellent power amenities for solar charging phones and ipads and running a fan while camping in hot conditions. Awning was a helpful bonus. Robert was super prompt with communication and made pickup and return easy.

Professional and thorough, start to finish. He took 2 hours to go over everything prior to departure. I had to take notes! He built his so he knows it and loves just like my wife who was new to camping did. We took it for a month and didn't want to give it back.
