Pick up Emmylou PDX in Portland

Emmylou PDX is the same all-wheel drive 2003 Honda Element outfitted with a Cascadia Vehicle Tent (CVT) that we also refer to simply as Emmylou. The only difference is that Emmylou PDX is available for pick up in Portland, while Emmylou is picked up in Bend, Oregon. For rentals that originate in Portland, a five day minimum rental is required.

This set up is sweet! Just like in your own personal tree house, you’ll be up off the ground and in the stars; unzip the tent flaps and let the night sky be your entertainment.

Emmylou PDX  is packed and loaded with everything you’ll need to turn this car into a camper. The tent up top is quick and easy to deploy, and the mattress inside is much bigger than you’d expect. It comfortably fits two adults, two adults with small children, three adults … we’ve seen lots of different sleeping configurations up there.

As for camping, all the cooking, eating and camp gear you need is included. Your job is simply to pack your bags and rent this camper van, er …  car!

Emmylou PDX’s owner is an event marketer who has traveled widely throughout the west coast; he’s always ready with an inside tip on where to go, and might even have a private camp spot or two up his sleeve for you. He’ll go above and beyond to make sure you have a great time.

Hop in and Go

All GoCamp vans are considered “road trip ready.” Whether you are flying in from out of town or looking to explore your own backyard, all you really need to do is stop for groceries before hitting the road. All cookware and tableware is included, as is bedding and a wide array of camping gear. You’ll be sent a detailed list of all the items included in the van before your trip so you can plan accordingly. Select any of the optional add-ons listed below when completing your reservation.

Optional Add-ons

  • Add a half day to your rental
    Rental days are based on a 24-hour period. If you pick up at 10 am you are generally expected to return at 10 am. Want to pick up your van in the morning, but drop it off in the evening? Add a half day to your rental.
    $100.00
  • Pet fee
    This vehicle is pet friendly. Bring Rover!
    $125.00
  • Bike rack
    Bike rack holds up to 4 bikes. (Local renters are welcome to see if their own bike racks attach. Vans typically accommodate two by two hitches.)
    $45.00
  • Overflow tent
    Nice if someone is known to snore, when you are bringing extra passengers, or if the kids want to stretch their wings.
    $35.00

Pick Up and Drop Off

Rentals are Calculated on a 24-hour Basis: The rental period is generally considered to be 24 hours. If you pick up the van at 10 am, you’ll be expected to return it around 10 am. Most van owners can accommodate requests for a few extra hours at $20/hour. Alternatively, if you want to pick up in the morning and drop off in the evening, simply select the optional half day add-on when completing your reservation.

Pick Up and Drop Off Time: There is no set pick up and drop off time. You’ll make arrangements suited to your needs and schedule with the van’s owner. You can indicate your preferred pick up and drop off time when completing your reservation; final arrangements will be confirmed with the van’s owner.

Insurance

GoCamp's insurance coverage includes $1 million in liability to the renter, $1 million in liability to the van owner, and comp and collision coverage up to $125,000. Coverage costs $32.50/day and is required as part of the rental.

Roadside Assistance

We make 24-hour roadside assistance available for $15 a day. Coverage includes unlimited: towing, flat tire assistance, emergency fluids delivery, battery boost, and a mobile mechanic. Many van owners require 24-hour roadside assistance as part of the rental. Where coverage is mandatory, you must either purchase our policy, or show proof of comparable coverage (such as AAA PLUS or PREMIER).

Mileage

125 miles per day is included in every rental. Additional miles are charged at 35 cents per mile. For example, on a four-night rental, you will have 500 free miles. If you traveled 600 miles, you would pay an additional $35 at the end of your trip.

Security Deposit

You’ll pay a security deposit of $1,000 two days before your rental starts. The security deposit is returned, less any additional fees, usually no more than 7 days after you return.

  • Cancellation Policy

    You can cancel the vehicle for a full refund, less a 5% service fee, up to 30 days prior to the rental. If you cancel with less than 30 days prior to the rental, you will receive a refund for 50% of the rental fee.

    Cancellations must be made in writing. We are unable to offer refunds for shortened trips if for some reason (e.g. weather, change in schedule) you return the vehicle early. GoCamp reserves the right to cancel a reservation at our discretion if we feel that the rental would not be safe (e.g. a renter shows up intoxicated, a hurricane is expected along the coast and you are determined to go surfing, etc.). If GoCamp cancels the rental you will receive a full refund.
