Try Before You Buy

Storyteller Overland has always said, It’s not about the journey or the destination. It’s the people you connect with along the way that matter most.That’s where we come in – to help you Try Before You Buy.  

If you want to experience a Storyteller Overland camper van before making a purchase, you’re in the right place. GoCamp’s Try Before Your Buy program connects you with Storyteller owners across the nation, so you can try and test by renting from GoCamp. We have over 30 Storytellers with varying models, ranging from the MODE LT to 4×4, Stealth to Beast. As Storyteller adds new models, you can easily test them through GoCamp. We’ll ensure you connect with amazing owners to support your journey, as we guide you through the process.


Why Try Before You Buy?

Because no one wants to settle. Buy exactly what you want.

With GoCamp’s Try Before Your Buy program, you have the opportunity to try and test vans in real-life scenarios instead of just at a dealer’s parking lot or during an RV show.  You can experience the full capabilities of the camper van you choose, and see if it fits your specific travel style. 

  • Do you prefer to be off-grid for extended periods of time?
  • Do you do a lot of highway driving?
  • Do you want to use the van as a basecamp for your ski trip?

Now, you can discover the best van for your adventures. We have camper vans across the country – from Storyteller Overland vans in Arizona for desert camping to rugged mountain exploration in the Pacific Northwest. Test the van in your ideal environment or location and see if it’s the right fit before you make a purchase.

Test Features, Layout and Capabilities

When you rent from GoCamp, you can also test specific features, capabilities, and layouts to ensure it meets your needs and expectations.

For example, if you’re interested in the Halo Shower, but aren’t sure if you’ll like it, give it a try! Or, if you’re wondering if the Groove Lounge is big enough for your tween to sleep on, you can test it out first. Are you tall and curious if the bed is big enough? Do you travel with your pet and want to ensure there’s room?

All of these questions are easily answered when you Try Before You Buy!

Try Various Models 

Enjoy variety when you test various models of your favorite Storyteller Overland vans. Every model offers something new to love, so test more than one, so you can make an informed decision when it’s time to purchase.

“I wish I'd built a custom space for my surf board before finalizing our van build... in retrospect you really won't know what you need and want until you get in a van and start brainstorming. Do you want a propane burner or induction cooktop in the kitchen? A stationary bed or one that you make every night? Is heat essential or do you think you can do without? It's too big an investment not to do a lot of homework before buying!”
