We are Kyle and Claudia, camping enthusiasts and owners of VanVan Campers. VanVan Campers is a micro camper-van rental company with one van (for now). We started this company with the goal of facilitating adventures. Located in San Diego, we're the perfect jumping off spot for a variety of excursions.
Claudia worked in the consulting and health insurance industries for almost a decade before deciding to explore other career options. Kyle is a musician for the San Diego symphony. They moved to San Diego from NYC in March, 2020 right as the pandemic got out of control. They are looking forward to many camping trips in their new micro camper van.
We took Harriet on an adventure back in May for 16 days. I am way late on this review I know. Anyway, Harriet was absolutely wonderful and her owners were even better. They were so quick to respond and answer every single one of my crazy questions before the trip. I had no idea what I was doing when renting this, but they made sure to give me every detail I would need. Down to the size of the crat…
Our experience was nothing short of AMAZING! The van was perfect & filled with all the amenities we needed for our trip to Big Sur. Claudia & Kyle were very hospitable and extremely responsive to any questions we had about our trip or the van. Would highly recommend working with these two & their adorable camper van!
We enjoyed Harriott and her owners, Kyle and Claudia were very helpful and accommodating! This was our "maiden voyage" in a campervan. We were discovering what we want and need as to sleeping space, living space etc. It was good to try it out locally! Thank you♡
O.M.G. I seriously don't have the words to describe how profound this trip impacted my life. And THIS VAN made it SO fun and easy to work and play!! I came to CA from FL to take an art workshop then stay an additional week to explore and paint. I went to Anza Borrego Desert, all around San Diego and to San Clemente and the van did GREAT! Mountains, highway, bumpy desert roads (slow) and packed bea…
Harriet was set up with all the bells and whistles as if I were arriving at an Air BnB. They had put in everything that I could have thought of for the trip and more. A very smooth transaction from start to finish with the owners. I would definitely rent from them again.
I could have brought zero camping gear because Claudia and Kyle truly have all you will need and more. The bed and enormously fluffy and warm down comforter made my trip feel so luxurious. The fairy lights were a nice touch and added to the charm of the van. The Dometic refrigerator kept my food really cold and it was very quiet when it did kick in to keep the temperature down. Even with the bed d…
Claudia and Kyle have put so many thoughtful details into Harriet that you will have everything you could possibly need. We spent about 7 days traveling all over California to multiple national parks and had absolutely no issues. As another bonus, Harriet gets excellent gas mileage and is so easy to drive (not bulky or slow at all). Cannot recommend this van enough!
We had a great time riding around California in Harriet! The vehicle is very fuel efficient and the owners paid a lot of attention to the little details. For example, it came with all the cooking utensils, spices, stove, and even some great little snacks! The setup inside is so well thought out as everything has its only little discrete place leaving plenty of room inside to relax. Claudia was a great host! I highly recommend!
It makes us so happy to hear that you were happy with Harriet and our set-up. We'd love to to host you and Franky again.
Seriously, what an awesome van!! I had so much fun taking Harriet on an adventure to Utah. Claudia and Kyle have thought of everything, so all you need to bring is some clothes and food. They delivered the van directly to my house and went through all the “need to knows” in order for me to have the best experience possible. I will definitely be looking to rent Harriet again!

We had a great experience renting Harriet. The Claudia and Kyle thought of small details needed to have an enjoyable camping experience and provided equipment and goodies to make sure our outing was a success. The vehicle was also in great shape and had added features to accommodate different trip types. The owners were also very accommodating and flexible; we especially appreciate that if them. If we could give 10 stars we would. We will only be using Harriet for our future trips.
Thanks Jonathan! We're glad to hear that you loved your time with Harriet. We'd love to have you any time. Please do reach out before your Grand Canyon trip so we can give you a 10% return guest discount.
