Pre-Rental Questions

Unlike other rental companies and airbnb type rentals, we own and maintain our fleet.   We complete a full inspection on all of our vehicles before sending them out on a trip.  In the event of a breakdown you should contact us immediately and we will take care of the situation.

The vans are available to pick up at our facility in Phoenix, Arizona.  The address is 5346 N. 91st Ave. Glendale, AZ 85305.  You may make arrangements to pick up or drop off in a different city however we charge an extra fee for that depending on the city.  Please contact us for prices and availability.

It is possible to pick up or drop off your vehicle between 9am and 4:30pm.  We do not allow vehicles to be returned after hours.  We ask that you schedule a specific pick up and drop off time and let us know if this changes.  Our rentals are based on a 24 hour period so if you pick up at 10 am, you will need to return the van close to 10am.  It is possible to purchase an extra half day if you would like to pick up in the morning and drop off in the afternoon.  Late returns will be charged at $25 per additional hour.

We have a few vans that are pet friendly and if you let us know that you will be traveling with a pet we will do our best to accommodate.  There is an additional $125 fee if you would like to travel with your pet.  Due to the fact that some of our renters may have pet allergies, the majority of our vans do not accommodate pets and we have a strict no pet policy in these vehicles. 

The Eurovans and Ford Transit have a secondary insurance plan that is included in the rental.  Our insurance picks up what your personal insurance does not cover.   There is a $2500 deductible to use our insurance on a claim.   The insurance includes both collision coverage ( 1. vehicle protection $45000 maximum) and 2. supplemental liability coverage (state required minimums of $25,000 for bodily injury per person and $50,000 per accident.  You can purchase additional collision insurance for $18 per day with a $500 deductible and offers vehicle protection up to $25000.  You must be 21 years or older to qualify for the rental. 

No, The camper vans are self contained with everything you need to camp with the exception of a shower and toilet.  One of the benefits of traveling in a Campervan is the ability to find a quiet spot to camp away from people.  Arizona has plenty of free or very cheap, undeveloped camping spots located on National Forest and BLM land, however these spots aren’t guaranteed and may be hard to find.  The benefits to reserved camping is access to maintained rest rooms & showers and the peace of mind of knowing that you have a place to camp for the night.  You do not need to reserve an RV site unless you would like to plug into shore power. 

No, you are not permitted to take the campervan into Mexico. 

Yes.  The rear bench seats in our Eurovans are equipped with shoulder and lap safety belts that can secure a child protective seat.  

We include 125 miles per day with the rental price, additional miles are .35 cents per mile.  We do not offer an unlimited mileage plan.  We find that this mileage is adequate for most road trips around Arizona.

Van Use/Camping

VW Eurovan Camper — 12 gallons

(Grey-water tank holds 8 gallons)

Ford Transit Campervan —  20 gallons

The water in the holding tank is potable fresh water.  We recommend using this water for cooking and washing dishes and then purchasing a jug of drinking water for preferred taste.

In the Eurovan Camper, the propane tank holds approximately 5 gallons of propane.  If you are only using the propane for cooking and running the fridge, it will last about 2 weeks.  If you are also using the propane furnace to heat the van regularly the propane may only last for 7-10 days.

The meter level button (inside the van below the stove) will give you an approximate idea of how full the propane tank is.  For a more exact reading there is a meter fixed to the propane tank.  Beneath the van on the driver’s side below the 2 round vent covers – you will have to get down on your hands and knees to see this meter.

The furnace runs on propane and is vented to the outside meaning you can operate the furnace while you are camping without worry.  You simply turn on the thermostat, select a temperature with the lever on the top and the furnace turns on automatically.

The fridge functions on either propane or electric.

Propane Setting – The van must be level to operate on propane and there must be sufficient charge in the auxiliary battery.  The fridge works while driving however the pilot light may go out from time to time.

Electric Setting – The fridge will operate on 110v when the van is plugged into an outlet.  We do not recommend running the fridge using the 12v auxillary battery setting as the battery will not hold enough of a charge for a length of time.

In order to use the 120V outlets in the Eurovan Camper and the Ford Transit, the van must be plugged into an electric source.  The 12V plugs may be used anytime and power is supplied by the Auxillary battery.
