Roamer is the only campervan rental agency in Europe specialising in off grid, 4WD vehicles. Our campervans are all hand crafted using the very best materials and fitted with the highest specification appliances. When you rent with Roamer you know you’re getting premium quality with bags of character.
In winter we focus on ski and snowboarding holidays, our vehicles are fully winterised and able to cope with the most extreme winter conditions. We can rent the campervans on their own, or build you a bespoke adventure holiday including lessons, off piste tours and other add-ons. For the rest of the year we kit the campervans out to support summer adventure activities such as mountain biking, kitesurfing, rock climbing and paragliding.
Roamer is a trading name of Roamer Vans UG, a company registered in Munich, Germany. We offer rentals all across Europe but for winter 2021-22 we will be based in Morzine, France. The business is owned and managed by husband and wife team, Steve and Kate Kennedy.

Mari chases things
We met back in 2011 and campervans have been a big part of our life ever since. We took our first van trip around Italy in a hired Toyota and were so hooked on vanlife and each other, we bought our first van and got engaged not long afterwards! We’ve been pottering around Europe in a van on and off ever since, we even got married in Slovenia and had our honeymoon in our van at the time, Gus the Bus.
After changing up our jobs to better suit the travelling lifestyle we started taking much longer trips, usually 6-8 weeks every summer and again for winter ski season. Homer has been all over Europe in that time, from the top of Scotland to Eastern Turkey and most places in between! We even adopted our dog, Mari while on a van trip around Romania. Our first campervan ski trip was a steep learning curve but brilliant fun, we loved it. Two more winters and hundreds of van upgrades later we’ve now fully winterised Homer and converted our second van Chewie, specifically for ski holiday rentals.
Kate also runs a destination wedding planning company, so between ski season rentals in the mountains and summers hopping around Europe creating beautiful weddings, vanlife will continue to be a big part of our lives for years to come.
Roamer was born out of our love of living on the road and a desire to build a sustainable business where we get to share our passion for vanlife and adventure.
Perfection is impossible but a great business is built by improving something every day. So we are constantly looking for ways to be better, whether that’s working on new upgrades for our vans or providing a better service. The little things matter.
We believe in camping as in life, you should aim to leave your corner of the world a little better than you found it. Our campervans make use of natural and reclaimed materials where possible, they are stocked with eco friendly cleaning products and have large solar panels fitted. We also offset 200% of the CO2 emissions from our campervans each year, via accredited schemes.
Although we only rent out a couple of campervans at the moment, we have big plans to expand Roamer across Europe in future. We will be converting two new campervans each year to add to our private fleet and will also open up our platform to other campervan owners for the winter 2021/22 season.
We also want to expand the adventure planning side of the business so look out for one off organised convoys in the summer, where we take all of our vans on a kitesurfing, rock climbing or mountain biking tour.
Regardless of how much Roamer grows, we will always maintain our high standards. Roamer means premium handcrafted 4WD campervans and great service, and we will keep it that way.
