When power is available, the unit has an AC and small heater. Two awnings, and a breakfast bar/table attachment make outdoor living fun and styling. The rear door opens up so you can enjoy the outdoor air during the day. Windows have screens and shades. Chairs (4), and one-pot style cooking equipment are supplied and everything is cleaned between uses.Locals... Brookline/Boston/Newton etc...

RecommendationsAfter booking we will work with you to make sure you have your plans set for a good time. If you wish we are happy to help you find the perfect camping spot in the New England area. Consider Wolfe's Neck Farm in Portland Maine, its our favorite spot.Most importantly we will also help you plan the route out to the campground and route back.Other things to noteThe camper is dog friendly but you may not take the camper to music festivals, off-roading and Conan O'Brian is absolutely not welcome.We strongly discourage leaving the Boston area on a Friday afternoon, and try to avoid coming back to Boston area at 12-3pm on a Sunday. If you are a new driver of towable trailers we recommend leaving mid-week or Sunday, or early in the day.

The spark behind Boston Camps came after meeting up with some friends at the park. It was towards the end of the summer and we were recounting our summer adventures. After mentioning our various camping trips we heard a familiar refrain… “We should do that, but I haven’t camped in ages”. We will be creating and posting content to to help families navigate camping in New England. Feel free to checkout our listings, we've attempted to translate our experiences into a great, rentable and preconfigured towable trailer. Happy camping!

We had the BEST time camping with the Happier Camper. James was amazing and so helpful to us every step of the way. The camper had everything we needed to make our trip fun safe and exciting. We will do this again.

We had a blast renting the Happy One for our road trip from Boston to Niagara Falls and the Finger Lakes regions of NY. James was more than flexible with pickup and dropoff times, and the rig was great. We are seasoned tent campers, but with two younger kids and a number of stops along the way, the convenience and comfort the camper provided were a welcome change of pace. We were pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the mattresses were. We all slept well throughout the trip, a huge plus when you're outdoors for 10 days! The large windows and fan -- plus the ability to open the back hatch -- kept us cool despite the heat wave that hit NY on our trip. We appreciated the little touches James included, too, like extra marshmallow sticks, outdoor carpets, and fun lanterns.

James was great. Everything was exactly as described in the listing. The camper was perfect! I would definitely go with this one again if I ever get the chance!

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
I strongly prefer to arrange pickup and drop-off at off peak hours. Happy to issue discount codes to encourage night before drop-off. Anyone within 20 minutes of Brookline, I'd be happy to drop the camper off days or nights before the reservation starts to facilitate packing and simplify logistics (must have off-street parking).

Q.How do the electric, water and sewage hook up work while setting up at the campground?
We provide a 50ft 30amp rated extension cord with a special connector to hookup to the RV. There is both a 30amp connector and a 15amp converter available as well to connect to power. There is no bathroom. [Indoor kitchen] Water can be connected to the kitchenette if you've chosen that optional features via a 50ft hose with filter. Kitchenette has a 5 gallon tank which can be filled manually as well. Drains externally to a bucket.

Q.What is included with the base camper?
The camper comes with the bed, bunk beds, storage cubes, 2-top table for inside, (2) 1-top table (1-) outdoor base for table. One of the cubes doubles as a cooler (very insulated). We include a 50ft 30amp electrical cable with 15amp adapter (for standard outlets). LED lights are available when on shore power. [New 2023] We include an area carpet for the side of the camper, and a rear mat for behind the door.

Q.Whats up with the kitchenette?
Happier Camper makes a great kitchenette built on top of the cube system you'll find in the camper. It has an RV sink (dometic) can use city water, or pump from a 5-gallon tank, has extendable tables on the side. It's great for when you need to have the ability to cook inside the camper and only have 1 or 2 people in the camper. Perfect for extended roadtrips. It is generally too heavy to remove frequently, and is out-performed by the full camp kitchen.
