The Mighty Vans Story:

Hi, my name is Matt, and I founded Mighty Vans shortly after moving to Salt Lake City, Utah. I was a professional rock climber/climbing photographer for a few years, and lived full time out of a van, road tripping the western USA, exploring off the beaten path to find undiscovered climbing areas. I bought an empty van and built the interior into a custom camper using the woodworking skills I developed in my first job after university. In total I spent almost 2.5 years living out of my van, spending 7 days a week exploring some of the most beautiful nature you can find. It was fantastic.

Eventually, I permanently injured my neck and I had to retire from climbing, which is when I moved to Salt Lake City. Having spent so long living out of my van, I knew that it would be an incredible way to vacation, and so rather than selling my van, I remodeled it and started renting it out to people looking to experience #vanlife for their vacations.

The comfort, driveability, and uniqueness of my original van meant that it rented very well immediately, and the rave reviews from my guests showed me that this was a business worth investing myself into – so I bought a second bare van to build out, and Mighty Vans was born.

I look forward to helping you have the very best possible western US road trip in a Mighty Van!  Just scroll down and take a look at the options to reserve your camper van now!

What Our Guests Say:

Matt has this rig completely dialed. He lived in it for a length of time, so it is built to be completely comfortable for a long period of time. My husband, my two-year old, and I stayed in the van very comfortably for almost two weeks while we mountain bikes and explored a bunch of national parks in Utah. Matt couldn’t have been a better communicator and knows the van intimately.  I would highly recommend this van and we cannot wait to do another trip!

Rent this van! Matt has thought of everything! It was super clean and very luxurious. The bed is incredibly comfortable. We really felt like we had a second home for the weekend- not just a van.

Matt is a nice Human being, right from my first communication till I handed over the vehicle back, everything went perfect. He answered all my questions patiently and walked through the features of the van. The campervan exactly matches the images as well as the description. His van made our first experience the best one. People were curious to know more about this van, we had some conversations and made good friends as well! I strongly recommend choosing this van for your next adventure.
