A few suggestions to make your trip epic

  • Plan ahead. This is especially important during the summer months when campgrounds must be reserved in many locations.

  • Figuring out a route for your trip is one of the most fun parts! Ask us suggestions based on where you are headed.

  • Prefer quality over quantity. Don’t try to fit in too many locations and feel like you drove most of your trip. Select a few close destinations and enjoy. ( Vans include 100 miles with each night of the rental)
