Off on Adventures in Ole Fredrick
Ole Fredrick is an all-wheel drive 2003 Honda Element outfitted with a Cascadia Vehicle Tent (CVT). 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.
Ole Fredrick 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. The bed is so big that two parents and two kids can comfortably sleep up top. Alternatively, two can sleep inside the vehicle in fold down seats, or we can send you off with an extra tent. (Note that with four passengers and camping gear, space is at a premium, so you’ll need to pack lightly!)
Ole Fredrick is available for travel throughout the US and Canada; he’ll reliably take you wherever you want to go.

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.

Updated as of March 2020. In light of concerns related to traveling during the novel coronavirus outbreak, we are waiving all cancellation and change fees. Whether you can cancel or change your camper van trip if you need to is something you can take off your worry list. We hope this situation ends soon, and we also hope you are able to get a break from it all in a camper van.
We will revert to our standard cancellation policy at a later time.
