Camper Rental? One option that many people don’t consider straight away is the camper trailer, but they can prove to be a cost effective way to get around quickly, so if you do not know much about them, it is definitely worth reading on!
The camper trailer or rent camper as they are sometimes known is a full accommodation option that you can take almost anywhere. As the name suggests the camp tent is stored in the trailer and is usually light weight and can be towed by almost any car.
On arrival at your location, the tent frame is released from the trailer and will fold out and to reveal your tent. This involves effectively flipping the metal or wooden top of the trailer over, which will turn into the main floor of your canvas tent, the frame following the floor will snap into place, leaving you with a fully set up tent in just minutes.
