Testimonials from Van Renters
LOVE, BROUGHT TO YOU BY ROCKY MOUNTAIN CAMPERVANS
When Heather and Will from Just a Colorado Gal approached us and said they wanted to take one of our vans on a honeymoon, we instantly knew they were the right people for the trip and that we had just the right van. The pair spent two weeks driving from Colorado to Canada and back in Jerry, our 1995 Eurovan Camper – stopping at six national parks along the way. How did Jerry work out?
“After dinner, we’d hang out and talk. And you know? We both consider those evening conversations to be the best part of the entire trip! There was no internet or TV or telephone or people to distract us. Instead, it was the two of us, newly married and talking about anything and everything. It was absolute perfection. We both happily remember our first night at the Lake O’Hara trailhead. It was puking snow outside in that wet and cold kind of way. We simply cozied up in the van, cranked the heat with a bottle of wine, and watched the storm fall around us. It was absolute perfection!” Heather and Will Rochfort.

“I may never pitch a tent again…Cassidy was so convenient and comfortable and efficient and awesome. We LOVED it. We had such a great time and it was absolutely perfect for me and my not-so-perfect physical condition. As you know, it was all the best parts of camping but none of the worst. … Anyway, thanks again and you’re absolutely going to get some repeat business from us, we’ll definitely be renting again (but for real next time, with payments and stuff) and I’m going to be bragging to everybody I know about this weekend for a while. THANK YOU”

“We couldn’t have been happier with the our experience with RMCV. They make it so easy to camp by providing EVERYTHING (bed & bath linens, flatware / cookware / utensils, clothesline/clips, bike rack, games, chairs, outdoor rug, lanterns / lamps, etc.) you need (just bring your clothes and some food) to have a really good time. I especially appreciated working with Erin. She is friendly, professional, accommodating and responsive. I would highly recommend you use RMCV if you’re interested in renting a VW camper van. For us, it was a truly positive and fun experience.” Stacy, Colorado Springs.
“Thank you so much to Boyd and Erin Fletcher of Rocky Mountain Campervans. Everything from the initial inquiries about the rental to the pick up and drop off was smooth, organized, and laid back. The price was just right for a spectacular weeklong adventure in Colorado with nearly all the amenities of home in our 1997 VW Eurovan named Fishman. Boyd had a CD ready with our favorite tunes and Erin made sure we had some extra necessities including a GPS and battery operated fan.
We had an incredible week. The van ran beautifully and was stocked with everything we needed- and more. We chugged along from Denver to Twin Lakes in Leadville -> Blue Mesa and Lake Fork of The Gunnison River -> Ridgeway- > Ourey -> Telluride and Alta Lakes -> Grand Mesa and the hundreds of lakes in this region. We were searching for isolation, rivers and lakes for paddling our canoe, mountains for hiking, and camping spaces were Fishman could peacefully land. We found all that we were searching for and though in preparation for the trip it was the destinations that we focused on most- it was truly the journey in our van that was most memorable. We loved the necessary wave to a fellow van camper and cruising in the right lane suited our slow vacation time vibes.
A few “pro-tips” from Boyd, Erin, and things we picked up along the way: 1) Boyd was right about getting the coffee pot (french press in the van) ready at night so you can enjoy coffee in bed. 2) We took a pop-up tent and some extra outdoor rugs (the van comes with one rug) which really helped to extend our living space. Literally the van doors opened to an oasis of tent covered rugs, tapestries hanging on the sides for shade, full size table complete with tablecloth and citronella candles (also a nice but not necessary thing to pack), to stunning views of Colorado rivers, mountains, and lakes. 3) For sleep we doubled the top bed mattresses with the bottom for an even more comfortable bed.
We really cannot say enough positive things about RMCV. Thank you so much for helping us to have our most memorable and enjoyable vacation to date. ”

“First, let me thank you for an enjoyable, relaxing, fun, and memorable vacation with my daughter Sarah tooling around the Rockies in your Eurovan, “P-Dub”. You were so kind to allow pick up and drop off at Denver International Airport. Meeting us here and performing the “check out” in the parking lot was way, way above the call of duty!
Besides the highly unique and clever idea of renting a vintage camper van to go into the woods for a week, we are patting ourselves on the back pretty hard at having made these arrangements with someone as thoughtful, kind, customer-oriented as you. P-Dub had everything we needed on-board and in working condition. When we had a minor mechanical problem on the road, you were quick to resolve our problem to our complete satisfaction. We were back on the road in no time!
Our experience with Rocky Mountain Camper Vans has led us to recommend this vacation option to several friends. We appreciate all you did to provide us a comfortable, well-appointed van that served us admirably throughout our stay in the Rockies. We are grateful to you for a fabulous vacation.

“A chalet on wheels!
The van was clean, fully equipped, and ready to go with everything we needed for winter camping. A.B. & Erin made the rental experience very easy. Great service, very friendly, and affordable. You can tell they really love what they’re doing.
We rented a `97 VW Eurovan to go snowshoeing, sledding, and camping in Rocky Mountain National Park. Camping with snowy peak views in January!
A.B. gave us the full rundown on the van’s features before we left. He was very thorough and everything was very smooth. The van came equipped with absolutely everything we needed for winter camping. The propane furnace kept us nice and toasty. The van was weather ready with snow tires and handled very well, even on snowy passes.
Rocky Mountain Camper Vans is a total game changer for anyone like us who has always wanted to travel VW-style, but doesn’t have one of their own. We’ve already reserved a van for this summer for more camping and music festivals.”
