Hi everyone,

This is my first time posting and I'm new to mountainproject too.

If this is the wrong discussion page I apologise.

I'm coming to the US from England in October for two weeks and I'm trying to find a cheap campervan to hire. We are flying into Denver and thinking over climbinget mainly in the Creek but also other non crack venues and sport venues also.
We'requite keen to do some long drives between venues to see a lot and cook/sleep near crags but not campsites if we can help it.

Any advise on the best place to get a camper would be helpful, thanks. So far I have checked RV SHARE which seems like a good concept but the RVS could be a touch bigger than what we require.

Just a basic van to sleep and cook in is more than enough for us. Any ideas?

I'll look forward to any recommendations from locals. Thanks.

How basic can you go? If a box is good enough, consider a moving company rental like Uhaul or something similar.

I had a great experience renting from Lost Campers a few years ago. At that time they were cheaper than both Juicy and Escape vans. I'd check out all three of those companies, though, and compare prices.

Matt wolski who is a member here and all around great guy has a company that rents camper vans, not RVs.

He's out of SLC I think.

I don't have his company website but someone here probably does.

Far from "comfort" but I've rented transit vans from UHAUL and lived and slept in the back. They go for $20 a day after a long enough period. Helpful to skip mentioning that your planning in living it. Great way to camp/travel on a limited budget

Thanks very much everyone. I found all of your comments very helpful and we now are pretty confident we have found a decent camper that suits us perfectly.
