Loved our Moab van. We had no issues whatsoever. Friendly staff. The bed was comfy and cozy, but the curtains had a funky smell, we bought air freshener but other than that, we take with us wonderful memories in this van and from San Francisco. Most definitely recommend to anyone who’s down to explore!

My husband and I rented a Moab-Class in San Francisco and have nothing but great things to say about our experience. It was an easy pick and the van was well equipped with everything we needed for our week on the road. We had no issues along the way and at drop off the owner Nick even drove us to our downtown hotel on Friday at rush hour which is as really rad. We highly recommend Lost Campers and would do it again in a heartbeat. Cheer mate.

This van rental worked perfectly for my needs! Not only were the logistics perfect for me (easy pick-up access on MUNI in San Francisco and close to LAX for drop-off), but the staffing in the offices at both ends, servicing the van, and reservations via email was great!! All ready and waiting when I arrived, communication along the way wonderful and as needed, and the van had everything for travel down the state--I stopped in a campsite only one night and parked on friends' properties the other six. The Ford Transit was a dream to drive and not bad on mileage, 17-18 mpg. The bed, so comfortable and easy-to-adjust bedding. In my own little world! On this trip I did not use the items for cooking, only the cooler. Very handy! though I didn't quite get the knack for resetting the battery when I noticed it off...I'll ask more questions on that when I plan to use it fully. No doubts at all that everything functions well. I love the layout with the camp kitchen and equipment at the back, easy to access. It was a first-class company and experience!! This time I had many people to see and meetings to attend on my way. Definitely, I hope to rent again from Lost Campers--next time for camping!

We were looking to do a 10 day California road trip and chose Lost Campers because they had everything we needed at the lowest price I could find. They were also able to do a one way from LA to SF with a small fee. The employee who checked us in at Los Angeles was very nice and they had a whole shelf of supplies left from previous campers that we could pick from. It saved us a lot of money and we were able to get things like unopened bottles of water, propane, firewood, cooking oil, tinfoil, etc. to start our trip. While the vans aren’t the newest, they worked perfectly fine and we had no mechanical issues. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were a little stiff, I would recommend bringing your own pillow if possible. I think for the value, Lost Campers can’t be beat If I was going to do another road trip I will definitely look at Lost Campers again and I would recommend them to anyone!

We went on an ambitious 9 day road trip across California that tested the van with steep hills, valleys and varying conditions and the van performed well and tackled them all! Everything we needed to survive was in the van and the employees who gave us the van even gave us extra supplies and tips to get us started on the trip. The mattress was comfortable (the pillows could use some work) and there was plenty of space for us to stay in the van. I recommend them and would use them again.

Enjoyed a 1400 mile road trip around the eastern Sierra mountains out of San Francisco. “Andrew” the Transport XLT drove great. Loved having the back up camera, inverter and Sirius radio as well as the electric cooler. Figured out cooler with trial and error, but nice to not have to buy ice daily. Bed was comfy and blankets were warm on the cool nights. Great experience and would definitely use Lost Campervans again.

Great camper van rental company. Very friendly and uncomplicated. Would definitely book with them again.

Had a wonderful 10 days in our van! Bed was super comfortable and the set up was simple but effective. Our battery died (was a bad battery) and the support line staff were amazing. Stacia organised for a new battery for us nearby, and reimbursed us without a hitch.

We had a great experience with Lost Campers. We took our van, Violet, to Yosemite, Kings Canyon, and Sequoia National Parks for a week-long vacation. We liked the discreet design of the vans, which didn't have the excessive advertisement of some other van rental companies; we saw some pretty obnoxious van designs during our trip.Other things we liked included the friendly employees, convenient kitchen set-up, fairly comfortable bed (as comfortable as you could reasonably expect for a mattress that rolls up), and a very clean van.Things we thought could be improved: adding information in the binder about nearby locations to get gas, and to clean up the van with a vacuum before drop-off. We easily got this information by calling, but having it in the binder would be convenient, especially as many Lost Campers won't have cell reception during their trips!

Lost Campers SLC absolutely rocked! I had one of their minivans for a five day excursion during Utah's Spike 150 celebration of the 1869 completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. The Dodge Grand Caravan (named Scottie) was the perfect tool for the job! Comfortable bed, sufficient kitchen, and it drove 1000% better than any regular rental RV ever would – which was great up on the windy plateaus of Utah and Wyoming. And the staff... goodness personified. Give these people your business if you ever need a lightweight rig for an outdoor adventure!

Had a fab week exploring Northern and Central CA in our Lost Campers van, Jules. Van was kitted out with everything we needed and no hidden fees like other hire companies. Bed was super comfy and easy to assemble. All in all, our experience was great and I couldn’t recommend them more!!

We had a great trip wandering around California. A few bits of equipment would have made a difference for us but overall we're were very happy. Great service from the staff at both Los Angeles and San Francisco. This a great way to travel in the USA. Load the Campendium app onto your phone to find the best and cheapest ways to camp. Some parks are as expensive as staying in a motel.

We have rented camper vans from Lost Campers on several occasions. What we love is that they are easy to drive mini vans that can be parked in any camping spot. They are basic, simple to use and everything you need for a camping trip for two; and the price is right 😀 Because we live close to San Francisco, we supplement with some of our own bedding and kitchen equipment, especially coffee making stuff as that isn't provided with the van. Great team at the office to deal with. We will definitely be back. Maybe next time we'll do a one way to LA and get the Coast Starlight train back.

Absolutely LOVE this company! My husband and I used their van to travel up and down the coast of California and it was amazing! So convenient, affordable and comfortable. The people who rented to us were very helpful and flexible. We were made to feel safe and accommodated while renting through them. Excited to rent again!

We had the experience of a lifetime with Lost Campers! We've wanted to do a 2-week roadtrip through Wyoming, Montana and Idaho for quite some time, but it has been tough to plan since we live in Boston. We weren't keen on flying with our camping equipment, nor did we want to have to rent a car and then rent our equipment from a different company; it was expensive and too much of a hassle. RVs were always an option, but neither of us had experience towing a trailer, nor did we like the price tag of the larger rentals. Lost Campers provided us with the convenience of a car rental, camping equipment and accommodations for at least half of what we would have paid anywhere else. The vans are very well-maintained, fully stocked with everything we needed and comfortable to drive. We got compliments from multiple people throughout our trip who were impressed with the efficiency of the "setup". We were thrilled with the customer service we received, and found the whole experience to be seamless. We plan to do another road trip with Lost Campers at some point in the next year or two and drive south to Moab, Zion, Grand Arches etc. I highly recommend Lost Campers to anyone who loves road trips, camping, hiking and loves a little adventure!read more

Rented a camper van for almost a week in Yellow stone and it was awesome! This was our first can experience. The van is very functional and has everything for you to be autonomous. They may even lend lighter and propane if they have some left. We miss the van already!read more

We had great great time in the Yellowstone thank's to the van. I do a lot of mountaineering and we are used to travel light, a big RV is not my thing + it"s really cheaper. Once we had mastered the art of setting up the roof tent we could do it with my kids in less then 5 min (clocked). Though I would advise to do it once on the parking lot before leaving especially if you plan to arrive late at your first destination.read more

My wife and I have always wanted to go through the National Parks in a camper van, but the timing added the twist that we needed to do this with a four month old. With that we needed a camper van that could support an infant car seat. Lost campers had the perfect solution and offered the camper van we needed. The service was excellent and we visited the parks for fifteen days with our son. It was the experience of a lifetime. Thank You Lost Campers SLC :)read more

We took one of Lost Campers' vans for a two week trip up through the Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks, and I couldn't be happier with the quality of the service we received and the product itself. I have never used a camper van before and my son was camping alongside, so it was kind of a novel experience, but it turned out perfectly. We got unpacking and packing down to a fine art, so that we were able to get early starts so as to secure great sites in the national park camping grounds, and then get started early each day to see the animals and thermal sites before the crowds arrived. The van was perfect for us, and I would thoroughly recommend this approach to anyone seeking flexibility. And Lost Campers were great - booking all this from Australia meant I got a couple of dates mixed up, but they were terrific about changing things around, and the guy in their Salt Lake City office was really knew his stuff - a very pleasant group to deal with....read more

This is our fifth campervan rental and first with Lost Campers. Amazing value (other SLC rentals were 2x to 3x the price!) and completely met our needs.We rented the Sierra Class. Kitchen in the back is convenient, duffel storage is accessible without folding the bed, foam bed is extraordinarily comfortable, staff super efficient and friendly. Can’t recommend enough. Per other reviews, bring a small cutting board otherwise everything you could need is provided.If staying around the Salt Lake City area, recommend you get weekend campsite reservations. On weekdays we had no problem finding walk up campground spots. Remember to bring your American The Beautiful Pass for the federal forests.read more

We absolutely loved the van and the flexibility it gave us to change plans on the fly and to stop and take naps while you're en route something you can't really do with hotels . We estimate it saved us almost 2K in hotel fees for our two week trip. Loved having a sink if for nothing else to wash our hands and the bed was comfortable and private. We purchased a sunscreen shield to make it even more private from the front for $3. The key is to always find showers before nighttime (RV parks and truck stops are usually $12 to shower but some campsites allow you to use their coin showers which cost around $2 for 8 minutes) .so that you get into the bedding clean. Despite being big and spacious the van drove like a car.read more

We rented the roof top tent version and had so much fun on our road trip! We slept inside when it was crazy cold in Yellowstone, but up in the tent for the rest. Great support team and very helpful customer service. If you are picking up your rental in Salt Lake, be advised that the office is in a nondescript grey building. Hopefully Lost Campers will be installing a bigger sign soon. We would definitely rent from these folks again. Now go get lost!read more

We rented a Camper Van for our vacation trip through the Grand Circle. Their service is extraordinary and we did not have any problem with our van at all. Their policy not limiting miles is a plus. You avoid surprises for exceeding miles and paying extra fees. I recommend the experience !read more

Awesome experience!! Absolutely will use again and highly recommend!

I fell in love with our van, Sweeney. He's a sweet and hefty ride. We explored and drove comfortably. The staff member that saw us on our way was very efficient and we were on our way soon. Comfortable ride and comfortable bed. Can't wait to plan my next getaway with Lost Campers.read more

Had a wonderful experience with a Lost Campers campervan. Would certainly recommend to anyone interested in experiencing the national parks on a reasonable budget. The staff was informative and helpful, and the van was exactly what we hoped it would be.read more

The people in the company were helpful and accessible. Our van was very well outfitted and the mattress was incredibly comfortable. Lost Campers added so much to our adventure in Utah. Thanks!read more
12:04 23 Nov 18
Great budget campervan! Cheapest one I found in Utah by far. I basically used it as a place to sleep rather than dealing with setting up tents and finding tent sites at night. The little sink in the back was handy for brushing my teeth but I didn’t use it more than that.read more

We took the van for 5 days and drove to Teton and Yellowstone National parks, and Antelope Island (which is a gem) driving just under 1000 miles return trip. We were really pleased about how smooth the whole Lost Camper hire and return process was, and how friendly and helpful Aspen and Drew were. The Dodge van was kitted out with everything we needed including sink, fresh water and waste containers , tables, bedding (and comfortable bed) chairs, gas cooker, crockery, etc. An added bonus was that we also picked up some essential things that previous campers had returned unused such as maps, bear spray (thankfully re-returned unused!) and laundry soap, etc. A great experience. The only thing that could be improved was information on the LC website about bringing towels. Highly recommended for people wanting an adventure..read more

Great experience with "Esther" which was our van/home/transport for our week in Utah. No problems at all with the van, or the roof top tent. Lost Campers made everything easy and gave great confidence in what we'd be depending on throughout our trip. Highly recommend!read more

We had a great time with a Sierra camper van for one week in Yellowstone, 2 adults and a 18month baby camper. Bed is comfy, canopy was usefully and everything is easy to setup. Friendly staff too. I highly recommend renting their mini camper vans !read more

Camper-van was excellent in size and easy to manage. The staff were extremely helpful and were able to help with our first time driving in the US. The van had no obvious marketing on the side of the van which is different from the many other van rentals we drove past, massive security bonus.Over all a great experience and would recommend to anybody that is looking to travel America.read more

We had six adults ans rented "Lila" and "Darrin" for a week in SLC and had a blast. We visited numerous state parks, national monuments, and national parks and we we're comfortable the entire trip. The beds were easy to make and comfortable. The kitchens served us well. It was comforting to know we had everything we needed with us at all times and could camp anywhere. I highly recommend this company and this way of travel.read more

Great customer service and very friendly staff. Byron was very helpful throughout the entire checking in and out process. He also shared some tips before we began with our journey. The Dodge Grand Caravan is easy to maneuver and it’s the perfect setting for a budget campervan. I strongly recommend Lost Campers even if it’s your first time renting a campervan. They also provide full insurance so there is nothing to worry about during the trip.read more

Spent 10 days on the Cali roads with 'Christie'. Loved it! We can highly recommend booking through lost campers. The staff at pick up (LA) as well as at drop off (SF) was amazing, friendly and funny! The Van was in outstanding condition and we even booked 2 additional night by email, they responded positively within few hours. Thanks for the great experience!read more

We recently rented a van from Lost Campers for a month. From check in to check out the staff were very friendly and efficient (thanks Byron) and when we had a cracked windscreen they organised a replacement with one phone call and zero hassles. The van itself was perfect for us for camping in State and National Parks. It had everything we needed for cooking and the bed was super comfortable. Would have no hesitation in renting again from Lost Campers on our next visit to the States and recommend to others who want a reliable ,well equipped vehicle at a good price.read more

Great place to rent! Super affordable and always customer friendly - both through email and in person. After renting twice, I can confirm that is the place to be for renting your RV. The vehicles are great for camping in the US, driving and sleeping is always a charm.read more

Lost Campers made our spring break trip terrific! Well, and the great California weather, ocean and beach time. I just love traveling with your housing and the ability to have an open itinerary. The bed inside the van and the Tepui tent on top were both very comfie. The set up is pretty slick, everything you need including the kitchen sink! I liked that the van was plain (not painted with crazy scenes and colors as some companies do) we could blend in easily. The staff was very friendly, helpful and kind and seemed genuinely interested in our trip and helping us have the best time. Highly recommend!read more

I had a great 5 day adventure in my little minivan “Oliver.” I loved that the van didn’t scream out that I was a rental. It somehow seemed safer as a single woman traveling alone. The customer service was exceptional...they really laid out the landscape and gave me great advice of how to navigate vanlife. Highly recommend!read more

We absolutely loved this company! It was our first time traveling in this kind of van, and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The vans are comfortable, safe, warm at night (even in the cold desert) and have great amenities. A huge plus is how discreet the vans look - great for parking in cities, with super tinted windows, not advertising that all your stuff is inside. :) We would definitely recommend this company to anyone wanting to travel with more freedom and ease around the West Coast.read more

We loved traveling the Californian coast with our van! It was a great experience- thank you!
Super camper! Takes you anywhere with all the stuff you need! Great service :)
lost campers were such a good find! really glad I rented from them because the communication via email was great and then when I came to pick up the camper the staff were very helpful with questions I had and the whole pick up process was quick and simple . I had a Sierra camper called shashka and it was the perfect camper for me because it was easy to drive and was just a nice simple and VERY comfy camper to sleep in. I think I almost slept better than my own bed. i will be coming back next year for definate but I will make it a longer trip than I did this year. bottom line, lost campers are great and I'm 100 percent happy from start to finish . thanks !!read more
Perfect for a quick beach getaway weekend! WooHoo!!!
