Don’t Rent A Car. Rent A Dream Come True!

Everyone wants to roll out of town! And apparently, they’re having a tough time finding the wheels for the rolling. There’s a shortage of rental cars, folks! In 2020 rental car companies sold off a good portion of their fleet to stay afloat as travel came to a halt. Now, as travel is picking up again, rental cars are apparently really hard to find.


People in a pinch have been shelling out big bucks in the game of high demand/low supply. Renting a convertible in Maui this past March might have run you upwards of $1,000/day! This situation sent many people toward the less-glamorous, and still costly, option of renting a U-Haul. Seems like life’s given travelers a whole lotta lemons … and we’re here to suggest, turn it into lemonade!

Planning a trip? Why rent a car (that might be hard to find and expensive) when you can rent a dream come true with a GoCamp camper van!

Car Rental$500a car that will take you places, IF you can find one
U-Haul$750um … you’ll get a moving truck
GoCamp$800a road-trip ready camper van with everything you need except groceries


If you’re in planning mode for a summer vacation, figuring out all the logistics of how to get there, where you’ll stay, what you’ll need to bring, and whether or not you’ll be able to secure a rental car to get you from Point A to Point B, just remember this one thing: A GoCamp camper van is all of the things. It’s the wheels you need to get between A and B (and in a camper van you’ll likely enjoy the distance between points more). It’s the comfy place to stay each night. It’s the fully-loaded cabin, beach house, or Airbnb of your dreams, with all the essentials, and added amenities. It’s camping made easy. And, we’re going to pat ourselves on the pop-top here: It’s far more fun than a rental car.

The van above could be your rental car. Except you could also stay in it. So… this could be your vacation.


GoCamp is adding more privately owned camper vans in more cities all the time, meeting the demand for unique, comfortable, beautiful ways to travel and experience life, a mile at a time. We work with passionate van owners who invest time, resources, and a whole lotta love into their camper vans so that travelers can truly enjoy them, from the inside out. We haven’t yet met a rent a car option that does that. 😉
