About Overland Rentals
Back in 2017, Frankie Post and his wife, Susanna loaded up their three kids and traveled 8000 miles in 31 days covering almost half of the United States. They learned about travel companies on the west coast that rent out their vehicles for people to use to explore. They loved seeing the country, but they also were reminded and appreciative of the beautiful Ozarks and Ouachita mountains back home. During many of their trips, they received messages from friends and family members saying that what they were doing was amazing, but they could never do something like that. That got Frankie thinking: “How could other people get out and enjoy the outdoors?” “What if they didn’t have all of the equipment?” “What if he could somehow provide it for them?” Fast-forward to the 2020 pandemic. So many people were stuck at home and didn’t have a way to get out and do things. The extra time led to becoming open to the possibility of helping people get out, away from others; while safely enjoy camping, hiking, overlanding, and the great outdoors.
One Sunday afternoon, while sitting at their Nana’s kitchen table, Frankie brought up his idea. He mentioned it to his brother-in-law who was considering buying a camping trailer. Frankie told him he wanted a Westfalia camper van and that he had an idea. Not only for themselves, but he had thought of a way to offer other people access to their gear. All of this sparked another thought: “What about people that have vehicles, but don’t get to use them very often?” “Maybe they would be interested in renting out their vehicle when they’re not using it?” By the end of the night, the family had fully developed a business model and Overland Rentals was born. That night they also agreed that when they purchased the Westfalia, her name would be “Betty Lou”, after their sweet Nana.
The Overland Rentals family wants to help you get out and explore. We have big dreams, a passion for the outdoors, for overlanding in our rigs, and a desire to help you make memories with your families that will last a lifetime.
