JUCY started in 2001 in Auckland, New Zealand with a fleet of just 35 rental cars and has since grown to more than 3,800 across the United States, New Zealand and Australia. Their camper vans offer all of the modern features commonly found on an RV; like a fridge, gas stoves, and sink — as well as being able to sleep up to four comfortably. As of now they only have three rental locations in the U.S. (Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas).


Roam started in 2015 in Portland, Oregon — after couple Taylor and Gretchen spent the majority of their time roaming around the Pacific Northwest in search of surf, snow and hidden gems. After a while, their 98' Tacoma wasn't cutting it anymore so that's when they came up with the perfect solution — Roam Sportsmobile camper vans. Roam camper vans are outfitted with a "pop-up" rooftop allowing those inside to standup; as well as a kitchen, refrigerator, running water and propane stove. Not to mention some top-of-the-line gear like Rumpl blankets, Helinox camp chairs, and Java Can.


Escape camper van rentals was first created in 2003 by good friends Peter, Mike and Andrew. They wanted to cater to those who needed an 'escape' from everyday life and enjoy the great outdoors — while maintaining comfortably and affordability. Their vans are all custom-painted by different artists and can be conveniently rented in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Denver, Miami, or Las Vegas. They all come equipped to sleep up to three adults (more if rooftop tent is added), two burner stove, sink with running water, refrigerator or Cooler box and everything else you’ll need to remain independent and free during your adventure.


Off The Grid Rentals offers high-quality off-road teardrop trailers, roof top tents and other luxury off-road camping equipment for rent. Providing the luxury camping experience without the up front costs of ownership. The equipment they offer is held to the highest standard and their trailers are built with the attention to detail needed to perform like no other rentals out there. If you need the tools to make your trip both comfortable and fun, make sure to check out their rental locations in Mesa, Arizona and Laguna Beach, California.


Campervan North America LLC was founded from the lack in vehicle rental offerings and need for having a solution for those with a sense of adventure. They proudly accommodate those who want to get off the beaten path and do it in an environmentally responsible fashion. They offer five different camper van models for rent, two of which are fully equipped with a toilet and shower.
