Toss the tent and rent! This Hybrid travel trailer is lightweight and friendly on your tow vehicle and gas budget! It's compact size makes it easy to navigate those winding roads and narrow nightmare campground roads as well. Sides pop out in literally 8 minutes with minimal effort on your part or maybe moderate effort on your teenager's part! I can do it in under 4 min with a beer in my hand. More than enough room to sleep 5 adults with all the amenities of a hotel room...except you're in the woods not the hood! We've been camping for 5 years with a family of 5 and 2 dogs! Dakota has been our memory maker and we hope you can take a piece of our pie and make a few of your own!!Towing Info-

We had a GREAT week with Dave’s camper! It was our first official camping trip with our kids and we couldn’t have asked for a better host to rent from. Camper was very clean, easy to use. We got great instruction from Dave before leaving. Towed really easily behind our Ram 1500. Most important, we were comfortable, dry, and happy! Dave included so many things to make our week a success. Thank you thank you! We will be renting again!
