Both my wife and I have just retired, so we used Marco's 4Runner as a 2,000+ mile test drive of one of the "retirement road tripping" set ups we have been considering. Marco's truck is outfitted with absolutely everything that one needs for "disbursed camping" on BLM land and National Parks and Monuments. All you really need to bring is food and clothing; the truck has most everything else. We hit seven National Parks and three National Monuments and the truck performed perfectly on the road and on about 50 miles of dirt/gravel roads.
We had an incredible experience renting Marco's 4Runner! On the rental side, Marco responded quickly and thoroughly to all of my questions. He was flexible with pick up and drop off times and was courteous to Uber us to and from the airport. He was helpful in explaining all the elements of the car and gear that we asked about.
The vehicle itself was awesome. We had no issues and it ran perfectly. It was a great balance for driving many miles and camping as well. There was also a ton of gear we weren't expecting to have, which really came in handy. My friend and I are both amateur campers at best and felt this car really set us up for success. Once we figured out the tent set up and take down once, it was a breeze from there.
Expect to get a TON of compliments on this vehicle - everyone kept asking us about it and all the enhancements we had made. We felt very cool! Can't say enough good things about this vehicle rental or Marco - highly recommend.
Wow! I cannot say enough wonderful compliments about Marco and Utah Wanderlust Rentals! This was my first trip renting a "camper car" and I really didn't know what to expect. From giving me all the best recommendations and helping create my week long trip itinerary to a perfectly fully loaded 4Runner, the trip could not have been more perfect. During our 7 day trip, we were able to visit the Mighty 5 National Park with 2 moderate hikes in each park, see 2 state parks, and spend a full day in SLC. The roof top tent took about 5-10 minutes to set up each night, BLM camping spots were super easy to find with the suggestions from Marco and not to mention there was a fridge in the back of the car to keep food cold!! This car literally had everything we needed to camp, cook, relax, and drive! I will recommend Marco to all my friends, and I hope to come back and take the 4Runner on trip to Yellowstone soon.
My name is Marco Prado. Originally from Costa Rica.
I’ve lived in Utah since June of 2020. I came here looking for adventure and creating new memories. I love the outdoors, and I love living simplistically!
Four years ago, after I moved to Kalama, Washington, I went camping off-grid for four months and found a sense of awakening amid nature. The trip meant to unwind became one of inner peace and happiness.
Post that trip; I began to purchase camping gear incrementally. Nearly two years ago, friends suggested I should rent out gear for other folks to begin their tryst with nature, and thus Utah Wanderlust Rentals, LLC was born.
