We rented a Sierra van with Lost Campers for our 30-day trip to visit national parks, and that was the best decision ever.First, let me say that this is by far the cheapest of all the options we considered.Being a Dodge Grand Caravan, it might seem less comfortable than regular campervans, but after one night we really made ourselves confortable, and the fact that it just looks like a regular car has been a huge advantage and gave us all the freedom we wanted (especially for ghost camping)Finally, they are a family-owned business and have been very friendly and helpful each time we needed. The Los Angeles location is close to the airport and outside hours pickup and drop-off is really easy and convenient.We had a perfect trip and I would 100% recommend going with Lost Campers anytime. ❤️

Wir waren 3 Wochen mit dem Camper in Kalifornien unterwegs und es hat alles super gut geklappt. Die Übergabe war einfach, der Camper sauber und die Fahrten sind alle reibungslos verlaufen. Wir sind sehr dankbar für diesen Urlaub, der mit Hilfe von Lost Campers so gut funktioniert hat. 🤩

Awesome experience, would definitely rent again! But be sure to pay San Francisco toll ahead of time because the vans don’t have easy pass. It’s only mentioned in the binder once and I wish it had been posted more visibly, bummer cause they will add a service charge. Regardless, we had a great time and they even got a very important bag back to me that I had left in the van! Thank you!

Great service and communication! Something always could go wrong and this was the case with our van the first day. Fortunately the way Lost Campers responseded was perfect! The same day we got a new van and we also did get a refund. The service that was provided was quick, clear and friendly! We made a great 6 weeks trip with the van and we would highly recommend anyone to hire a van from Lost Campers!

We had a great a experience with Lost Campers! The van we rented was very well equipped and maintained and we had no problem with it whatsoever. They were extremely helpful and quick to reply whenever we contacted them. The people we talked to at pick-up and drop-off (including the owner) were really friendly and nice to talk to. Would 100% recommend and hope to rent one of their vans again one day!

We were on a four week trip and everything was perfect. Emails and calls were answered fast and the rental price is also fair.The Dodge Grand Caravan is not a racer, but nice to drive and has a good size for sleeping. At some spots it was an advantage, that it is not obvoius that this is a camper van. Also the provided camping gear worked fine for cooking. Thanks

Amenities are a bit basic, but you get a lot for the low price. Had 3 great weeks in one of their vans. We required their service a few times on the road and were helped very quickly and friendly, highly recommended!

Une excellente compagnie de location de vans. Nous avons loué un petit van pour 6 semaines et nous avons parcourus 8000 km avec sans aucun soucis. Le van est très discret (un grand avantage) et suffisamment confortable (il y a tout le nécessaire de base pour un road trip: lit, cuisine avec un réchaud de qualité et tous les ustensiles, bidons pour l'eau, table et chaises, glacière, etc). Je recommande juste de prendre un sac de couchage ou une couverture supplémentaire si vous allez dans des régions froides car il n'y a qu'une seule couverture dans le van. L'équipe de Lost Campers était très réactive quand nous avions des questions, c'est une petite compagnie à l'écoute des clients et qui propose un service de qualité. Les prix sont très raisonnables comparés aux autres compagnies. Je recommande à 100%!

Can't say enough about the Lost Campers van rental in April 2022. For the price paid the vans are super equipped for whatever you have in your camping mind. We are an older couple and still the Caravan size sufficed for us. Van was a pleasure to drive---stealth van style---freeway, switchbacks or campground. Good people to chat with, family owned, and they will help set up your adventure.

We rented a minivan with Lost Campers last May. Drove it up the coast to San Francisco, to Yosemite, and then back to LA. Excellent price and the van was in great condition. Bed was comfortable and clean. The sink in the back was a lifesaver. Very friendly, helpful staff who love what they do as well. Highly recommend!

So affordable and a great experience! Easy pick up and drop off. No issues with the van, and we put a lot of miles on it. Mattress is shockingly comfy and allows for a cozy camping experience. Customer service was fast and so helpful! Can't recommend them enough.

We had booked a camper for three days.Thanks to the contactless handover, we were a little more flexible in terms of times.The van was clean and had only small scratches on the chassis. It was also fully fueled and all extra requests were met.Thanks to the unlimited miles, we were able to visit a few national parks as well.Definitely a recommendation and we will probably rent here again.

My trip with Lost Campers was first planned in the beginning of 2020 but due to Covid19 the borders were closed and I had to postpone the already planned trip. It took about 18 month until borders were opened again finally though about three times it was announced that traveling from Europe to the USA would be possible again. And each time I re-planned the trip and Lost Campers were extremely supportive, answering my questions very fast and very friendly. Finally in November 2021 I started the tour. Everything went very well and again I had the best of support from the Lost Campers Team. Definitely they will be the one for my next trip too! Highly recommended!

We had an amazing time in our Lost Campers van rental! The van came equipped with everything we needed and there was a very well put-together binder and online videos to help us with everything else we needed to know to get us on the road to visiting some amazing places. We will definitely be back again!

I can't recommend these guys enough! We have now hired three times from Lost Campers, and two of our trips were up to 80 days at a time which is proof that we absolutely loved the cars and the team. The vehicles are really well looked after, very comfortable and supplied with all you need for camping life. We hired a rooftop tent and it was fantastic. So easy to put up but it was good to have the flexibility to sleep in the car too, especially when we hit cold weather. The team are fantastic, super helpful and so responsive if we ever had any questions or needed any regular maintenance done on the car. Financially, Lost Campers are really affordable too, and for us the ability to drive with unlimited mileage all the way from California to Montana and back again was just perfect. HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Nous avons loué un van pour 3 semaines cet été. Nous recommandons Lost Camper sans hésitation. La voiture est confortable et bien aménagée. On y dort très bien. Nous avons eu quelques soucis avec la voiture mais l'équipe de Lost camper a été très réactive et efficace. Un grand merci à Nick pour sa gentillesse.

I highly recommend Lost Campers. We had an excellent two-week California road trip in a Dodge Grand Caravan, we took the option with a rooftop tent ("Hotel Sierra") as we're 2 adults + 2 kids, it was roomy enough. Lost Campers provided (at no extra cost) sleeping bags, pillows, gas stove, dishes, camping chairs,... which contributed to our trip being amazing. And we were able to pick up in SF and drop off in LA for a rather low one-way fee. Last but not least, the staff is super helpful (no chatbots here, but real people). I've had some terrible experiences in the past with large car rental companies whose main purpose seem to be finding ways to scam you, with Lost Campers it was the opposite, everything went smoothly. Thank you Chelise and the whole Lost Campers team, one happy customer here! 🙂

10/10 recommend renting through Lost Campers for anyone looking to experience van life while traveling.You can’t beat the price especially when you consider the unlimited miles. Our original travel plans got derailed due to a storm so we had to drive farther distances than originally planned. Thankfully we didn’t have to calculate our miles or even think about them in order to do so.The customer service is fantastic throughout the entire process: booking, pickup, provided documents, questions, drop off, etc.We have rented cargo vans that were built out in the past and were curious to see how a minivan would stack up against them. We didn’t notice any amenities lacking from the switch and particularly enjoyed the backrests from the backseats when retiring for the night. We suggest going with the Sierra model (at the minimum) because of the sink, which is a game changer.If we ever fly into one of Lost Campers’ hubs, we will definitely be renting from them again and loved supporting their family owned/operated business.

Fantastic! Had a really great experience with these dudes, the van came with everything I needed and more. It was a great price, especially if you are planning to do lots of miles.The van came with clear instructions, great suggestions of places to visit, some useful information about visiting those places and some useful rules or the road for us other side of the road foreigners...Contactless pick up was super easy, drop off was even easier.The van its self didn't miss a beat, it had done plenty of miles so I was unsure when I picked it up, but it was great. All clean inside and out, the windscreen had been treated to help in bad weather which helped rather alot.I really hope my experience and review will help more people to use this company. Great work guys!

Taking the first vacation in almost 2 years with a VAN from Lost Campers seemed the best way to stay safe.The paperless pickup, communications and responsiveness of the people I dealt with (mostly Chelise) was excellent.The camper “Sam” seemed a little old on arrival, but he had a character we learned to love during the 16 day trip around California. My only regret is “Sam” didn’t have a photographic side, so our pictures didn’t include him.Anyway, the origami wooden box bed was well made and super comfy with the mattress. We had taken our own sleeping bags (COVID precautions) but inside was warm and snug. I’m 6’4” and with a little practice I could get in and out without banging my head in the dark.Cooking and food storage was good, although I did have to fix the stove due to the jet being blocked.Drop off was as easy as pickup and the owner was available even on Sunday

We had an excellent experience with Lost Campers! Everything was completely smooth from getting the quote, to making the reservation, doing the contracts online, pickup of van, and return of van.We were, honestly, very impressed with the cleanliness of the van itself and all the bedding that came with it.The interior of the van has such a clever design that can be made into a table or a bed with storage underneath. It just really works great for the small space. Even the storage area underneath was super clean.The refrigerated cooler, camp stove, pots/pans and all the dish ware included made it so easy for us to cook and clean up, thus not not needing to eat at restaurants constantly during our time with the van.The only problem we had was the inverter supplied with the van was not quite working properly and we didn’t have that extra power source to charge phones and AirPods, but we made it fine without that as we had some extra battery packs with us. This was a minor issue for us as we anticipated energy needs.All information needed about anything you would need to know for operation of, or in case of problems, was in a detailed binder inside the van. Most of this information is in video links that are sent to you during the reservation process, but it was also excellent to have a hard copy in the van you could refer to quickly and easily.No advertisements on the outside of the van is also the best! I love that you don’t necessarily look like you are a tourist just from your vehicle, which could easily invite trouble.If we are in need of this type of van setup again we would definitely rent with Lost Campers!

We loved to drive our car "Esther" from the Lost campers. We booked the car just a couple days before we started and it was even than possible to get the car. During covid you have to do all arrangements online, we prefere it in another way but it worked also that way.We planed 3 weeks for our road trip from LA to San Francisco to see a couple National Parks and we will never forget this amazing time with the car.The communication with the Team was so fast and every single person from Lost campers was so helpfull! They have a really great team! Even as we had a problem with the side door of the car they arranged all fast and we could continue our trip after one day waiting time and they reimbursed that day.The best is that the car is not labeled as a rentalcar like any other companies have and you are more nutral on your way.This company is definitely a better option in terms of personal service.You feel that you are not just a another number of custumer.Thank you! We would rent a car again!

We had a great trip and the camper van was nice. They were very helpful and it all worked out ok. Couple small things were missing like forks, the canopy was not very good and the van had light body damage beforehand. But it was no big deal and the good totally outweighed the bad. Bed was comfortable and the thick blankets were nice. The van has power to get thru traffic and the vehicle drove great. A rated them a 5 because they are a good hard working company that provides a decent product with a decent price. Please purchase with confidence.

We chose lost campers as they seemed to be the most affordable rental company in Cali and are so glad we did. We had our lovely van (Joyce) for 6 weeks and drove through 9 different states across the US. The van itself is perfect - lost campers provide everything you could need, the van drove well and there were no issues with its performance.We had an issue midway through with a smashed windshield which could have been quite stressful, but lost campers were easy to get a hold of and were able to quickly organise a replacement appointment at no cost to us (we had max insurance cover).The customer service team respond to emails rapidly and answer any queries or concerns, everyone we spoke to, including the owner were very personable and helpful.Would 100% recommend to anyone looking to rent a camper and we struggle to see why anyone would want/need to go with one of the bigger companies. Thank you!!

Wir hatten zunächst einen Campervan für 6 Tage gebucht. Nachdem es uns so gut gefallen hat damit die Nationalparks Yosemite, Sequoia und Kings Canyon zu besuchen, haben wir gleich noch zwei Tage verlängert. Alles war sehr unkompliziert und gut organisiert. Lost Campers kann ich daher nur empfehlen. Die Preise sind ebenfalls fair.

I had the best experience renting a camper van from Lost Campers!! Even though the pick up was contactless, they sent detailed instructions to pick up van and made the whole transaction feel very personal like they really cared to give welcoming and friendly service. When I brought back the van, there were actually guys there physically to receive it and they were so pleasant! I drove and camped in the van for 5 days and have no complaints. The van ran well, bed was comfy and the camping supplies were just what I needed. And all at a surprisingly low price. Can’t wait to do it all again for 2 weeks next time!!

We really enjoyed our experience with Lost campers. The team was helpful, responsive and pleasant to work with. The Sierra caravan offered all you could need for a camping trip. The mattress was surprisingly comfortable and spacious. We will be recommending the company and vans to friends, and hopefully book again in the future!

A great way to see California. The van ran great over the 1000 miles that we traveled and the staff at lost campers were excellent in communication. My kids had a blast sleeping in the rooftop tent. Lots of great memories were made on this trip.

Had an amazing trip in our Lost Campers van! It came with everything we needed—a stove, mattress, cookware, and even a sink in the back. It was easy to pack up and set up the bed each night, so we were able to cover a lot of miles without the hassle of setting up a tent each day. For the amount of miles on the vehicle, the van was in great shape. We will definitely rent again!

I loved my camper van from Lost Campers because it is stealthy and minimal but also has everything you need. Pickup and drop off were crazy easy. I just showed up, grabbed my key out of the lockbox, and drove off. I had a great trip to Yosemite! They also offer unlimited mileage which you won’t find anywhere else. These guys are the best van rental I’ve found so far.
