About the car

My reliable Honda CRV is a great small SUV and has been going strong for 15 years with relatively low mileage for the number of years its been on the road. I keep it in excellent condition inside and out and has only ever required routine scheduled maintenance. It still drives as smooth as the day I purchased it.
Car has a functioning radio, A/C and cruise control and a bike rack for 2 bikes.
The left side rear view mirror needs to be adjusted manually, right side is still mechanically controlled by button next to steering wheel.

My CRV really is a multi purpose vehicle. Here are some uses myself and other renters have used it for and check out the photos for illustrations:

By far the most useful feature. I have moved many times in this vehice even out of state and it carries an unbelievable amount of cargo. Dimensions are 60"L x 42"H x 36"W. The height and width are measurements are from the frame of the open trunk. There is some extra height and width within the cargo space, so there is extra wiggle room and I very often put the front passenger seat forward to create extra length. I have fit everything from a 6 seater kitchen table, dressers and bedroom furniture. A renter informed me they fit a loveseat couch in it. I do not recommend attempting to transport a mattress, unless its a futon that can fold. Even if you manage to squeeze it in through sheer will and determination, getting it back out again is a much different feat. My CRV handles better and is a much smoother ride than a UHAUL and loading/unloading and parking is so much easier. Do multiple trips if necessary, you will not be charged per mile if you stay under the daily allowance of 150 miles.

The CRV is a very comfortable ride. It seats up to 5 adults very comfortably with lots of leg room and great visibility from all passenger seats. There is also ample space for luggage and camping equipment. Many of my passengers report significantly less car sickness riding in my car compared to sedans.

Going to IKEA or Costco? Stock up on your bulk items using my CRV. Easily accessible hatchback, very easy loading and unloading of your shopping items. The CRV is also easy to park, being a smaller SUV, it parks easily in compact spaces.

Here you must see the photos to illustrate what a great camping car it is. Whether you're car camping or backpacking. It will carry all your equipment, and the car will easily accommodate 2 sleeping adults and I am 5'10" and I fit. It also comes with a stowaway picnic table, very useful for impromtu picnics anywhere.

Some extra items I am willing to rent to you for $5 per day each item:
a 2 person tent
1 adult size sleeping pad
A camping stove ( you must supply your own butane gas)
1 camping chair
A hand cart for moving boxes, max weight 150 lbs.

I myself was a gigging drummer for many years in LA, my CRV was great for loading and unloading my drumkit. I have also had many musicians, chefs and gardeners rent my CRV for their gigs which required transporting themselves and the tools of their trade.

If you need a replacement vehicle for a few days while your vehicle is being serviced, my car comes with a Berkeley Zone C residential parking permit so you have unlimited parking on any Zone C streets, but please watch for street cleaning days and times.

Unfortunately I cannot accommodate pet transportation but fortunately for those of you like myself with sensitivities there has never been any pets inside this car in the 12 years I have owned it, so if you're allergic or hypersensitive, you will be safe and sniffle free on your trip. Please be mindful of this and do not sneak your pet in on a trip. I will know right away and it is quite unsafe to have an allergic reaction while driving.

The CR-V is a 4 cylinder, 2 wheel drive vehicle, so is basically a Civic under the hood with the body and extra cargo space of an SUV. It does not handle mountains very well, you'll get there but by chugging painfully slow so I decline most mountain trips. Later CRV models, post 2002 have more horse power to handle its SUV type body better and then there's the honest-to-God SUV engines with 6 cylinders and all wheel drive that are designed for such trips and there's many of those here on Relayrides, so invest the extra $$ to really make the most of your ski vacation.

When making a request, please state an estimated mileage and general purpose of your trip.

*I cannot allow early pickup or late drop off, please plan your trip times before booking and if you need to alter you can do so by calling Relayrides, but check my calendar first to make sure the car is available*

Please pay all toll fares at the cash booth or bring your own Fastrak pass. If you are driving over the Golden Gate Bridge, please leave $7 in the glove box.

*Please leave time to fill up the tank before you return the car*

Happy and safe travels.
