About Better Than Tents RV Rentals

When we were a bit younger and had time, we used to take advantage of little getaways with the kids in our camper. As we got older, the kids grew up, we had less time, less motivation, and a lot less patience. Our little Rockwood (the "OG") was literally a yard ornament. Tom had the idea to start renting her to families, so at least she was getting out there to providing an avenue for them to have their own adventures and create lasting memories. While we kicked around this idea, we thought about all of the negatives pertaining to the camping experience as a whole, and why we didn't even attempt to take trips anymore. So, we got to brainstorming. We agreed that rather than have anyone else risk their sanity, or safety, we would eliminate as much of the stress that packing, coordinating, traveling, and set-up causes so folks could just enjoy their time together, as it is so precious and limited. Even though our camper was 10+ years old at that time, she was as comfortable as a favorite sweater and still had a lot to offer. After all, it was definitely better than sleeping in tents! We now have three campers. We aim to provide just about everything (new or seasoned) campers could need based on what we have learned along the way. We do believe we have done a decent job of this, and our renters would definitely agree.

Great experience renting from Tom and Erika! Their camper was clean, very well stocked, and comfortable! We would absolutely rent from them again.

Tom and Ericka are wonderful hosts! We could not be more pleased with this experience. When we arrived at the site, everything was already setup (chairs around the fire and under awning). The camper is fully stocked with anything you could possibly need during your stay. It is immaculately clean and very comfortable. I would highly recommend this camper!

All I can say is WOW! What an amazing experience we had. When we arrived at the site, the owners were there prepping the camper for our stay. Not only was the camper well kept and clean, but it was well stocked with everything you need for an enjoyable camping trip- including Adirondack chairs for around the fire, a grill/flat top, ice maker, lounge chairs for under the awning, and even covers/tablecloths for the picnic table. What an easy experience this was. 10/10 would rent again!!
