At Kuku Campers, we prefer to do vacation differently. If you are looking for a "tourist around tourist" kind of a vacation, then close this window immediately, burn your computer, and jump out of the next window.
Originally from Iceland, we are KúKú Campers. As our name implies, we are considered by many—ourselves included, if we have to be honest—the world’s craziest camper van rental company. We offer cheap Colorado camper van rentals for the ultimate road trip. Go everywhere, sleep anywhere, and do anything all at an incredibly low price in one of our Colorado camper vans.
We offer fully equipped camper vans for the summer and ski camper vans with heaters to keep you warm for the ski season.
We have been keeping it fresh for years with new camper vans at great, affordable prices! While many companies pride themselves on being “no nonsense,” at Kuku Campers, we pride ourselves on what we like to call “know nonsense.” This approach allows us to develop vans you’ll not only love, but trips you’ll remember for a lifetime.
If you promise to bring the KuKu camper van back to Colorado you can take it around the US but not to Mexico or Canada.
Don’t look any further. Stop trying to make sense of that “no nonsense” business and start to “know nonsense” with Kuku Campers. Book your KúKú Colorado camper van and see what the fuss is all about.

, check out her amazing blog!

5 Surprising Steps to Canoe Camp
Above all else, whether you go whitewater canoeing or flatwater, canoeing brings peace of mind. The amount of stress relief achieved on a canoe camping trip is unparalleled.
Here’s how you can do it, especially as a beginner.
Choosing the Right Trip
The best way to get started is to go closer to home. You will need to bring a friend, too, since a two person canoe is the way to go. They do make solo canoes, but for your first time, learn to tandem.
Pick a flatwater location. A lazy section of a local river, for instance, is a great star...Read more

What's so good about Colorado?
Winter in Colorado is super great for the snowboarding and skiing, building an igloo, or going dog-sledding. But it is more than that, we have stunning mountain vistas, cozy pubs with the best beers in America (hint, it’s not all Bud), and toasty hot springs galore. Loads of our national parks stay open for winter camping (the bears will be hibernating in Winter, you‘ll be alright).
Summer in Colorado is a party in the USA, as Miley says! We've got canyon river rafting, dude ranch horseback riding, kayaking, and all kinds of watersports, zip-lining, camping, ATV tours, hiking trails, fishing... Suns out, guns out, you get the idea!
Can I take the Camper Van out side of Colorado?
Of course you can - if you promise to bring it back to Colorado. We do not allow our customers to take it outside of the United States to Mexico. If you would like to travel to Canada, please give us a heads up!
How should we plan our trip?
Colorado trip planning, like planning for any trip, can be tough. But don’t worry, we make it easy! You will want to firstly decide whether you want to visit in the wintertime or summertime.
Some campsites or parks may be closed, so in winter it is best to plan ahead and check what is open. The ski-slopes are the best place to spend wintertime soaking in a hot tub and shredding the slopes.
Aspen is just a 3.5 hour drive from Denver.
In summer you can drive all the way around Colorado, and a nice route to take is to drive south from Denver to Colorado Springs and see the Garden of the Gods. See the crazy landscape on the way to Pueblo, and take route 50 through Gunnison National Forest to see the Black Canyon, or continue to route 160 to see the Great Sand Dunes and go through the Rio Grande National forest.
Follow route 550 up through more national forests, stopping at Ouray and Delta and take route 70 back to Denver.
Can I camp anywhere?
Wild Camping or Dispersed camping in the USA is generally camping on public lands where a visitor is not required to camp in developed or designated campgrounds. You can find places to camp by using the Gaia GPS App as well!
This kind of camping is typically not permitted in designated ‘National Parks’ (such as Rocky Mountain National Park) but there are many locations located on the lands managed by the US Forest Service www.fs.fed.us and Bureau of Land Management www.blm.gov where this kind of camping is permitted.
How many days do I need to drive around Colorado?
If you’re looking to rent camper vans in Colorado, Kuku Campers offers rental contracts that last up to a week. But there are so many monuments and natural wonders to visit it that could take you longer, and we are happy to show you on a map our favorite places and the best, most scenic routes to get there.
Where can I find restrooms and showers?
The best place to get clean is at campsites around Colorado which have modern toilet, showering and bbq facilities, and most of them have a place to throw away trash. They provide drinking water and picnic facilities. Recreation centres in most towns (Swimming pools, sport centres) will also allow you to use the facilities for a small fee. The price varies but you shouldn‘t expect to pay more than $7.
Where can I find information on weather or road hazards while driving in Colorado?
There are many websites dedicated to the weather in Colorado, as we love following storms almost as much as we love following celebrities fresh out of rehab. Our favorite site for the weather is http://www.weather.gov/ and https://alerts.weather.gov/cap/co.php?x=1
http://www.cotrip.org/map.htm is a great website to show you the road conditions and any current delays and warnings.
Where can I park and camp overnight?
National forests and state parks have plenty of campgrounds available with good facilities, and there are many other private campsites around here too. You can also use the Gaia GPS App to find areas to camp and hike!
There are also rest areas every 30-40 miles where truckers stop, and some Walmarts and Lowe's allow sleeping overnight in their parking lots.
But take advantage of the miles and miles of beautiful national parks we have where you can sleep in the wild like a bear. Well... a bear in a campervan.
