 With the Great Salt Lake and Utah’s most famous mountains close at hand and the rest of the West just beyond, your luxury Moterra campervan is ready to take you on the adventure of a lifetime through the desert. Our 3-night/4-day rental package is the perfect choice to start exploring the desert Southwest.

With flights to and from any location you’d care to name, Salt Lake City is an ideal base from which to launch your big Western road trip. Hit the road from February until May, and again in September through November, while the weather is mild and typically free of snow. Spend your time mixing and matching spectacular destinations, or park your van for and immerse yourself in these adventurous landscapes.

Van options:

Pop Top Classic - Sleeps 4 and seats 5: Our signature campervan, the Pop-Top Classic will elicit memories of the Westfalias of old, but with a distinctly luxurious twist. Boasting an 8-foot ceiling, the most floor space of any of our layouts, a self-contained solar electricity system, ample storage space, and a full kitchen, this campervan is the Classic for a reason.

Pop Top Plus - Sleeps 4 and seats 8: Great for larger parties, the Pop Top Plus features seat belts for eight so you can fit the whole gang when shuttling to the trailhead! Wrap around 360° windows and a large outdoor awning extends the social space rain or shine. For those looking for more sleeping space, the Pop Top Plus offers a bed just larger than a standard queen, and is the newest addition to our fleet.

The High Roof - Sleeps 2 and seats 6: We built our High Roof Campervan with couples in mind. Featuring an indoor shower, hot water system, full kitchen, thermostat heater and queen-sized bed, this is van life at its most luxurious!  Experience the great outdoors with a loved one in any season.

Area Information
Desert Southwest

Arches National Park: Just outside of the legendary adventure destination of Moab, Utah and across the Colorado River from Canyonlands National Park are the eponymous stone arches of Arches National Park, balancing in defiance of age and common sense. Bike, hike, climb, or drive among the towering stone appendages that thrust out from the earth at every turn and marvel at these natural wonders of the world.

Canyonlands National Park: Two powerful churning rivers, the Colorado and the Green intertwine and snake through this colorful landscape of narrow twisting canyons, scorched mesas, and towering buttes. Get lost in this unparalleled desert wilderness that draws hikers, bikers, climbers and adventure seekers 

Capitol Reef National Park: Explore twisting canyons and improbable rock formations, then park for a night under the stars in this wonderland of incredible geological oddity. 

Dead Horse: Perched high up on the northeast rim of Canyonlands national park, Dead Horse Point is a jaw-dropping vista into one of America’s greatest National Parks. While Canyonlands confines its cyclists to dirt roads, Dead Horse has 17 miles of singletrack mountain bike trails with loops of varying difficulty. Pull over the van and take full advantage of all that this gem has to offer.

Monument Valley: Pillars and buttresses of rock and sand tower over you, mighty testaments to times long past in a desert that is immediately familiar. As you gaze out upon natural monuments the size of skyscrapers, you recognize the view from its myriad appearances in the great Western films of John Ford and Sergio Leone. Explore the iconic roads of the greatest film set on Earth and realize that this landscape has been the scene of dramas eons-old that no camera will ever capture. All activities in Monument Valley Tribal Park require a guide, but the knowledgeable local pros add a wealth of natural and cultural value to the experience of this incredible place.

FAQ
FAQ
  • What happens once I book the rental?
    After you book your rental, an evo representative will reach out to get your desired dates of rental. Once we have confirmed availability for your desired van rental, Moterra will reach out with more detailed pick up info. Please wait to book flights or make travel arrangements until we have confirmed availability.
  • Can I extend my rental additional nights?
    Absolutely! The current nightly rate before taxes are: Pop Top Classic - $339/night, Pop Top Plus or High Roof - $359/night. Please note when confirming date availability you would like additional nights and we will do our best to accommodate.
  • How do I meet up with the group?
    Once you book a van we will email you specific instructions and directions to our office/pick-up location. Not to worry, you will receive an additional email with this information 7 days prior to your reservation! Each office hub is located in a convenient location close to the airport and in close proximity to grocery stores. If you’d like to pick up the van elsewhere, please reach out and we will explore whether we can accommodate your request. Please note that charges apply for off-site pick-ups/drop-offs.
  • What gear should I bring? Do you offer rentals?
    The gear you bring is completely up to you and your adventure! We do offer rentals for bike racks, tents & sleeping pads, hammocks, an entertainment pack (A deck of cards, glow in the dark Bocce, Frisbee & Jenga), binoculars, outdoor shower & tent, dutch oven, cooler, portable awning, hitch mounted storage, luno front bunk
  • Is trip insurance required?
    Trip insurance is not required, but we do recommend protecting any trip with travel insurance from World Nomads.
  • What if I need to cancel?
    Should you need to cancel or reschedule your reservation due to state or federally mandated travel restrictions, provided you are not able to receive reimbursement from an insurer (trip insurance or other), and you are between 8 and 45 days of your reservation’s departure date when placing the request, we will credit your rental amount towards a future rental with us with no expiration. Please note that rentals cannot be rescheduled within 7 days of departure and forfeit any credits upon cancellation.
  • What is the minimum and maximum number of guests per trip?
    The maximum number of guests is the number of seatbelts in your van: ○ Pop-Top Classic (5) ○ Pop-Top Plus (8) ○ High Roof (6)
  • Is there a minimum age required for this trip?
    Renters/ drivers must be 25 years old
  • What are my insurance options? How much does it cost?
    You can choose to buy comprehensive insurance from Moterra, or alternatively you can check to see if you are covered under your personal vehicle policy. If you decide to use your personal policy, Moterra requires an insurance binder from your insurance company, which states that you are covered for a Class B Rental at or above the total value of the van, at least 1 week prior to your reservation starting. Once you have booked your campervan, you will receive an email with a sample insurance binder you can send to your insurance company. While Collision protection is optional (but recommended!), we do require some form of liability insurance, whether ours or yours, that meets the above requirements.
  • Is there heat and A/C in the vans?
    All of our vans have A/C, when the vans are running. There is no A/C when you are parked. All of our vans have in-built heaters that run off the diesel, and can be used overnight.
  • Are the vans 4WD?
    Yes! However, keep in mind that these are campervans, not off-road vehicles. As stated in our rental contract, we do ask that you stay on well-maintained dirt roads if planning to go ‘off the grid.
  • Do we have to park in RV designated sites?
    Moterra campervans are 19 feet long and are not required to park in RV designated spaces; you can park in any tent or car camping site accessible by car. You are more than welcome, of course, to reserve an RV site if you wish to use the RV site hookups.
  • Can I put a carseat in the van?
    Yes! No matter which type of van you opt for, you’ll have at least one shoulder and one lap belt for a car seat. We do not have the latch and anchor system for car seats, but both a shoulder and lap belt work to install most types of car seats, front or rear facing. Please check on the details of your specific car seat to review installation and compatibility.
  • What is the toilet like?
    We offer a toilet to all reservations for all van types- if you decide when you arrive that you would not like to take the toilet with you, you can leave it at our warehouse. The Thetford Portapotti is a hassle-free seated option – you can see a video of how it works . Please note that toilets must be emptied before being returned to avoid incurring an additional cleaning fee of $150.
  • Can I bring a dog?
    You sure can! This is an available add-on after booking and will incur an additional cleaning fee of $150.00.
Testimonials
“This was one of the best vacations we have ever taken! The van has everything you could need. The hot water shower was amazing after a day of hiking. This was a week we will never forget, and we can’t wait until we can rent again!”
Kelly C.
Campervan Rental Guest
“Cannot speak highly enough of our experience with Moterra - felt absolutely spoiled with the amenities, they truly thought of everything we could possibly need and more. Superb customer service and communication from the team. They really went above and beyond. Had the best trip thanks to them and certainly look forward to booking again soon!”
Megan S
Campervan Rental Guest
"Moterra went above and beyond to ensure that my family and I had a trip to remember. The team was helpful and available as we prepared and packed, making sure the camper had everything needed for our trip. I grew up renting RVs with my family and my experience with Moterra has been excellent from the point we picked up the camper van to dropping it back off. I highly recommend renting from them."
