Every year, my sister and I try to take a summer adventure with both our families - 9 of us in total; 5 kids and 4 adults.  This year we had the idea of taking a road trip together with both families and found Peace Vans Rentals.  We ended up renting 2 vans for the 9 of us and touring the Olympic Peninsula.  What a blast!  Road trips are the best trips and touring the Northwest in two vintage VWs was a dream.

It's tough these days to find a vacation that encourages us to do nothing more than just BE together. No agendas, no technological gadgets, no consumerism. Our days on the Olympic Peninsula consisted of hot coffee around smoking coals, epic drives through epic landscapes, dares to jump into turquoise swimming holes, awe-struck wonder at speckled rainforest banana slugs, hot dinners cooked in plein-aire, dual Westie "goodnight"'s that rivaled the Brady Brunch, late night glasses of wine around a crackling fire, and waking up to see where the next day would lead us. In 7 days, we spent 168 hours together....all nine of us. That is to say...we didn't spend a minute apart.  That's all we really wanted. Toss in Peace Vans' world-class customer service, top-notch vintage vans that made everyone drool, and countryside that is torn from the pages of our dreams.....we couldn't have wished for a more perfect adventure. Thank you Peace Vans!!!! Unforgettable!

We had a wedding outside of Seattle that had a camping option, so we thought – why not turn it into a whole roadtrip adventure? So we searched online and found Peace Vans Rentals! They had a van available for us and we booked and excitedly planned. This turned out to be one of our better vacations in a long time – we explored, camped, and had a great time touring the Northwest in our van. Peace Vans provided everything we needed. A perfect trip.

Each year I try to take my now 17 year old niece on an adventure usually exploring something awesome outdoors. This year, I really wanted to try a road trip and do one in a vintage VW Van. For us, the VW holds a special place as my niece’s father – who passed away when she was 2 – had one of these vehicles and the family has held onto to it to give it to her one of these days. Fortunately, we found Peace Vans and were able to grab the van they call Ohanapecosh for a week of exploring. It was an amazing trip and one we’ll never forget. A great way to bond and great way to connect to the memories. Thanks Peace Vans!

Call me crazy, but taking my three kids on the road in a vintage VW Vanagon seemed like a perfect vacation…and it was. The van was a pleasure to drive, camping in it with three kids was great, and it came equipped with everything we needed for an awesome trip around the Olympic Peninsula. Thankfully, my husband joined for the last two nights. Harley and team made sure we had everything we needed and answered all our questions. It was a great trip. Thanks!

My husband and I have been together for 10 years, 3 of which we have been married. We decided to take our first official vacation this summer when he retired from playing baseball professionally. His career only ever allowed for work travel and not much pleasure. This trip was amazing, from the van to the recommendations - we'd do it again for sure! Thank you for providing us with the trip of a lifetime, it was just what we needed to start this next phase of life together.

“We were looking for a VW camper to rent for our honeymoon. We were so pleased to find Peace Vans had a rental service, as we had heard good things about the mechanics. We let them know that were going to be honeymooners and we feel we got top notch service right from booking. Not only were they super cool and fun to work with, but they TOTALLY took care of us to make it special. They wrote "Just Married" on the back of the van, and gave us a bottle of champagne when we picked it up. Driving around in a Vanagon with Just Married written on the back got us so many honks, waves, thumbs ups, congrats and well wishes from people across the state!

"We headed from Tennessee (2 adults and 2 kids) for a Northwest adventure. We rented a VW camper from a company across the border in Canada - but it died after an hour and the company was unable to get us going in that van or a replacement. With the kids nearly crying that their VW adventure was disappearing, we called Peace Vans in Seattle to see if a miracle was possible.  It was after 6PM on Friday, but someone answered the phone and they were able to get a van ready for us to pick up! Hooray. The van was awesome, the kids had a blast and it was everything we hoped for. The team at Peace Vans was incredibly helpful and kind - even meeting us back at their shop after midnight after we discovered we had left our passports in our van and couldn't cross the border for our early morning flight the next day. Thank You Peace Vans for helping make our Northwest adventure amazing."
