I’m giving you a five star rating and will definitely call Lost Campers the next time we visit your area. You offer the most well equipped vans, which is simply amazing. They’re modern, well-maintained and very comfortable. All one has to do is drive and relax. For a first time camper, I felt like an experienced outdoors person on our trip. We were so blessed to find you on the internet. I still can’t believe how your website just magically appeared. To us Lost Campers is a Finder’s Keeper. (And, you are only a phone call away.) Thanks, Nick and Emma.

Happy lost campers usa terms

Finally we arrived in Germany. We had a really great trip. It was the best decision to rent a vanat Lost Campers. Everything worked so easy and you both were so friendly and helpful. I liked the way to travel with your van so much because we had the comfort we needed and were inconspicuous enough to sleep wherever we wanted to. (Yes no signs on the Vans!) So thanks for this nice journey! First we have to wait for our baby…its going to be born in October…but one day we will travel again with Lost Campers!! Hope you like the pictures. Greetings from Germany.

My husband and I rented from Lost Campers in late April early May of 2009 to drive south of San Francisco to Capitola, Monterey, Sequoia National Park, Yosemite, and lastly Napa Valley. The rental process and all of the supplies and information that we were furnished were incredibly easy and more than sufficient! The cost of the Lost Camper Vans is fantastic! We priced out some RVs and found them to be quite exorbitant when you factor in mileage cost, gas, generator, etc. We also found that we were quite happy to have a smaller, compact van for the hills and windy roads in the mountains, and in retrospect we wouldn’t do it any other way! It was also nice to always have our things with us as well as not having to “set up camp and break it down” as everything is ready to go as is! Lastly Nick and Emma were incredibly kind and eager to help us with any and all arrangements that we needed to make. We most definitely would rent from Lost Campers again and have told all of our friends and family what a great experience we had. Thank you Nick and Emma!

Great vans, Good people – Lost Campers are the best!


Amy & Jimmie, Ireland

We have recently returned from traveling around the world – our last stop being North America where we rented a van from you. We had previously booked the Greyhound Bus to take us round America, but after much consideration we decided that we wanted to drive ourselves as we felt it would be a great experience and we would perhaps see more of the country. This was the best decision we made. The van became our ‘home’ for over 2 weeks, and we had an amazing adventure driving around in it and finding somewhere to park up at night to cook dinner using the equipment you provided. The van was great to drive, reliable and probably some of the best nights sleep we had had in a few months!

We felt the campervan was excellent value for money and have recommended you to all our friends who are thinking of planning a trip in America. Lost Campers was a pleasure to deal with – thank you!!

Julia and Marco, Germany

We want to thank you for the wonderful service Lost Campers provided us with the rental of a lovely van which made our holiday even better as we were fully independent. We were impressed with the friendly staff as well as the good instructions to leave the city of San Francisco. It was a great holiday made possible by the ability to move down the coast to Santa Barbara at our own time and take all the beauty around us. Once again thank you and we will call on your services next year when we do the inner part of California.

Michael Young, San Francisco Bay Area

I want to compliment you on your business. Annemary and I spent the last four days in ‘The Big T’ at a music festival in Mendocino County. The van performed flawlessly and provided for a very comfortable camping weekend. The best part was the cheerful customer service from you both! Keep up the good work! Wishing you much success and all that it brings!

Tilden M, San Francisco

Lost Campers is the BEST! The van was terrific and so well outfitted that I was in need of nothing. I was with a very large group, all were envious, and next year they will probably be Lost Campers too. Getting a van from them was the best camping decision I have ever made.

Jen M, Texas

We drove to Big Sur, California in one the vans named Mister Red. The van was perfect, we had a great time and Lost Campers supplied us everything we needed for the trip. We highly recommend this company to anyone who needs to travel without the hassle of an R.V. We were also able to park in the city underground car parks and go and see a baseball game whilst in San Francisco.
