Skip the tents and camp in style! Sweet Thing is a cosy 13 ft travel trailer. Born in 1970, this beauty has been completely gutted & redone top to bottom to offer the utmost comfort and the perfect glamping experience. Don’t let her small size fool you! Sweet Thing has a large dinette that converts to a super comfy king size bed! This is the perfect retreat for a couple looking to get away or a small family. Pet friendly and ready for an adventure!What's includedCoffee + tea

Please Note:
*There is no bathroom or shower in the camper
* This trailer runs best when connected to an electrical hookup at a campsite. The space heater and refrigerator do not work for long periods (via the lithium battery) if there is no electrical hookup.
* There is a small lithium battery power station in the trailer that runs the interior lights and can charge cell phones. It can also be used to be power the fridge and small appliances although that will use the battery up rather quickly. The battery can be recharged via solar panels (provided) or via vehicle charging port in your vehicle or via a standard electrical outlet.
* There is no sink or running water but the trailer comes with a washbasin for washing dishes and another washbasin for personal use.
**We provide a ball for your hitch receiver (it fits in a 2" receiver)
**Trailer lights use a 4 way connector-we provide an adapter if you need one
**Sweet thing is super lightweight and easy to tow with most vehicles. She’s under 1000 pounds!
Recommendations‘Sweet Thing’ is perfect for exploring Southern Ontario's many beautiful campgrounds. She has also been used for weddings, photo shoots, birthday parties, outdoor events, pop up shops, photo booths. She loves to get around!Other things to note**Renters are responsible for hooking up the trailer to their vehicle when they arrive (I will walk you through it)
**Renters are responsible for backing the trailer into the driveway upon return
*No smoking inside the trailer
*Be prepared for people to stop and ask you questions about the trailer. She is the talk of the town wherever she goes!
