This is the perfect camper for people who like actually camping. Or maybe you're just ready to get up off the ground but don't want to feel like you're in your living room. No satellite dishes, air conditioning, or microwaves for you. Just 360 degrees of nature and, maybe, the smell of bacon in the morning on the camp stove. "It's cute, too," as described by a renter.You'll be right at home with this cute and classic camper beneath the high trees of a state park, the open prairie of southwest Minnesota, or the campground of one of the Midwest's major (or minor) camping events.All new for 2023! New dense-core foam mattresses!!! Completely renovated with new tent, lighting, stove, interior, and other improvements, the camper is a snap to set up thanks to the colorful step-by-step guide to setting up and taking it down. Even rookies will have no trouble operating it. The guide is sent via email immediately upon booking and a setup/takedown lesson is provided in advance on request so you're not learning at the campground.Two large bunks provide queen and full-sized accommodations. A "sofa" pulls out for an additional sleeping area and a table conversion with two seats provides yet another.Pickup times are entirely flexible (I'm retired) and I'll work hard to be sure your experience with the camper is an enjoyable one. Yes, delivery is available and for certain locations in the Twin Cities metro, it and setup are free. Help by text is available constantly during your trip.If you want to learn more about the camper, please request a copy of the camper guide.Read more about the camper at its blog. dutchmencamper(dot)blogspot(dot)com/Big discounts for weekly rentals are available ($50 per night).

RecommendationsIn 2022, the camper visited Whitewater State Park multiple times, Kamp Dels on Lake Sakatah, the air show in Oshkosh, the North Shore of Minnesota, Chippewa National Forest and various state parks in Minnesota and Wisconsin.Other things to notePlease be sure your vehicle's tow rating is high enough for approximately 2000 pounds. 2" ball for the hitch required.Also be sure you have a *working* electrical connection -- 4-way flat connector (Green: Right turn/brake light -Yellow: Left turn/brake light-Brown: Tail/running lights - White: Ground wire) for lights.

Meet your host, Bob

Member since 2019

Former writer with a Twin Cities media company. Now a part-time aviation writer and airplane builder. I bought the camper primarily to use during AirVenture at Oshkosh every summer. Always wanted to have one. Now that I'm retired, I do. For the rest of the year, I figure if someone else can get some pleasure out of it, all the better.

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
I'm retired so there is no firm timetable for pickup or drop off. Since I'm also an usher at Target Field, the only factor is if there's a game on a particular day, I have to be at Target Field by 10 am for day games and 4pm for night games, so we may have to adjust pickup/drop off teams (i.e. pick up the night before, or drop off on a Sunday after 6:30 pm etc). It's all very flexible and informal. This isn't U-Haul.

Q.Are there any special tricks and tips that would help with operating the RV easily?
I provide a step-by-step setup & take down guide with pictures. If you have more than one person camping with you, put one person in charge of reading the instructions step by step, and the other person following direction Ideally, you will have had some experience towing something with your vehicle. At many campgrounds, you have to back in. That can be embarrassing if you've never done it before and it can be loud if you have a spouse who, well, you know.

Q.How do the electric, water and sewage hook up work while setting up at the campground?
This isn't a big "land yacht." It's just a pop-up camper. So the only trick is getting close enough to the electrical outlet if you have a camping site that provides electricity. I provide a 25 foot extension cord. There is no sewage hookup. The only outflow is from the sink if you choose to use it

Q.How does your delivery policy work?
I will bring the camper to a reserved campground spot and set it up. I will return on the last day and take it all down for you. The charged is based one ONE one-way trip from South St. Paul (even them I'm making four of them) with whatever mileage is indicated by Google Maps times the delivery rate. Minimum charge is $60. I will deliver within 50 miles. If you're setting up at home or within 10 miles of South St. Paul, delivery, setup, and pickup is free.
