Lost Campers USA Offers Affordable, Eco-Friendly Campervans
Nov 11, 2008 - If gas prices and hotel rates have you second guessing your vacation plans, San Francisco-based Lost Campers, www.LostCampersUsa.com, offers a cleverly designed alternative to pricey RVs and motor home charters. Founded by Australian natives Nick and Emma Thomson, Lost Campers has a fleet of completely outfitted, medium-sized Campervans for rent. Thrifty on gas and easy to drive, these exceptional vans make a significantly smaller carbon footprint than the RVs or SUV-towed trailers typically available for rent.
The idea of retrofitting minivans into campers came from the Thomson's experience of camping in Australia, where smaller camping vehicles are commonplace. Exporting this concept to the U.S., the Thomson's founded Lost Campers, and now offer three classes of Campervans. The Big Boy regular and Deluxe Campers are based upon GMC Safaris and the Wanderer Class Campervan is based on a Toyota Previa. Each Camper comes equipped with a built-in bed (for two); fresh linens; privacy curtains; storage; side awning; roof racks; maps; propane stove; ice cooler; kitchen setup ; picnic table; chairs; and lantern. With these essentials provided, a couple or small family simply has to purchase groceries and select a route.
Lost Campers is located at the gateway to all kinds of California and West Coast adventures. The Thomson's encourage customers to "find themselves by getting lost" in their Campervans. Whether surfing, snowboarding, hiking, camping, wine tasting, or enjoying art and music festivals, Lost Campers USA offers the opportunity for a laid-back, stress-free vacation.
Lost Campers USA recently had its first summer and was over 80% booked all season. An essential factor in Lost Campers' success is the level of customer service the company provides. As attorney Tilden M. commented, "Lost Campers is the BEST! The van was terrific and so well outfitted that I was in need of nothing. I was with a very large group and all were envious. This was the best camping decision I have ever made."
