The owner’s manual of your vehicle will give you a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). Then check what the weight of the trailer is on our web site. You should stay about 500lbs to 1000lbs away from your GVWR because the weight on are web site are not including any water or any of your personal items.

Nope, we have solar panels & batteries on the trailer that should last you during the trip.

If you are staying for more than a few days, make sure to be conservative with your electricity and water. If you are staying somewhere without hook-up once those things are gone they are gone.

If we have a trailer available you can rent same day. Just give us a couple hours notice so we can get things ready for you.
