If you prefer a later drop off time,  this must be approved before taking the trailer out. If the trailer comes back after 3pm without prior approval there will be late fees charged.

What if I return the trailer before the date it is due back?

If you are running late and the next appointment is on time you will be pushed back to the next available appointment. A late charge of $50 per half hour will be charged if you are more than 30 min late for pick up. The trailer is due back by 3pm on the day of return. We ask that you contact us as you are leaving your camping spot with an estimated time of arrival so we can be there to meet you.

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. Please keep in mind that some thing in the trailer won’t work unless the trailer is hooked to external power, for instance tv, power outlets, and AC. 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 a unit is available what kind of minimum notice do you require?
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.
