What Others Are Saying
What an amazing solo adventure! Travis was incredibly knowledgeable about the area. I told him a general description of what I wanted and let him do the trip planning. He put me on spots I never would have found on my own. The gladiator was a beast and handled white rim trail solo without any issues. The gear provided was excellent and it all stored securely inside the bed. The tent setup was the most solid tent I’ve ever used. It had a nice mattress pad and was comfortable even during an extended mountain rain. I will definitely be renting from element outdoors in the future, and utilizing Travis’s trip planning.
"Element Outdoors and Travis, the owner, provided us with the Jeep and gear we needed for a fabulous outdoor adventure in Moab. The Jeep Gladiator was fully equipped to meet our wilderness camping needs and provided off-road adventure. The Jeep and Travis' suggestions took our trip to a level we could never have dreamed of on our own. We will be back with friends and family to repeat some adventure and create new ones. Travis is a gold mine of knowledge and expertise for anyone traveling to the Moab and surrounding areas."
"We really enjoyed our trip! I am not an avid camper but Travis and Element outdoors really thought of everything we would need to stay off the grid making our trip really relaxing and enjoyable. We didn’t have a single moment where we wished we had something that wasn’t in the Jeep. Would absolutely rent again and bring friends to do it with us! Great experience and really great customer service."
