About Will Mcgowen

Our family lives right here in the Valley, and after years of contemplating renting trailers full time, WE Took THE Leap! Due to housing needs caused by the fires that ravaged California, we knew it was time. Our small fleet was able to assist with the fire relief efforts in Northern California, and we were excited to bring them home to the Kern River Valley. Our fleet has grown significantly since then, becoming the largest, most modern in the area. Whether you're visiting for a family camping trip, white water rafting, or partaking in the numerous adventures available to the outdoor enthusiast, let us take the hassle out of your trip. We deliver and set up to Kernville and surrounding campgrounds and want to make your vacation the best possible. We take great pride in everything our little mountain community has to offer and know that you will too!

Thank you for everything. The trailer was awesome, everything we expected. We really appreciate your assistance helping us figure out the entertainment components. I enjoyed visiting with Maryann who helped me figure out which unit to look at for next year. Now we are booked and look forward to another Thanksgiving weekend on the Kern River. In fact it was such a great experience, we might come back this summer. You have a great staff that helped me every step of the way.

The trailer was clean and delivered on time. It was a nice experience for the family. It’s the best way to enjoy the trailer without worrying about the tow.

Over all experience was good but the air conditioner breaker kept tripping because the filter on top of the trailer was flogged with debris from the trees in the campground. Hopefully the owners will see this message and have their maintenance crew check this on their trailer before each new user in the future. I would definitely use again though!
