Thank you for choosing the Joyful Jay for your next adventure!We’ve spruced up this camper for our own family travels with freshly re-finished cabinets, new laminate wood flooring, and a custom cherry map table.On each side is a bed that pulls out - one a double and one a twin size. The dinette folds down for additional sleep space. It's the perfect size: light enough to be safely towed by many mid-size SUVs or even a minivan yet large enough to comfortably sleep 2-3 adults (or 2 adults and 2-3 children).What I love most about this camper is how comfortable it is, while still retaining the "feel" of tent camping by virtue of the soft sides and ability to unzip windows for a 360-degree view. It's the perfect marriage of outdoor air with a soft landing.Almost anything you might need for your adventure is included! Everything from sheets, pillows, sleeping bags, an electric griddle top, basic cleaning supplies, dishes, cups, mugs, electric kettle, and french press, to twinkle lights, all ready to be put to use.Also available to rent for an additional fee are two inflatable stand-up paddle boards, two ultralight weight backpacking tents, a baby hiking carrier, and a sea kayak. Ask us if there's something you need - especially if you're flying in from elsewhere! We want to make your journey as easy and enjoyable as possible. What's includedFresh linen
Electric cook-top and propane cook-top
Plates, silverware, cups
Basic cleaning supplies

Other things to notePets considered.This camper does NOT have an air conditioner on-board but does have a heater. We do plan to add an air conditioner this summer. Reach out if you plan to book and will need one for your trip and can let you know if one will on board in time for your booking.Boondocking is permitted at campgrounds that just don’t have electric and water hook-ups and on a case-by-case basis otherwise. Ask us for details if you plan to boondock during your trip!The pick-up time defaults to 3 pm and drop-off time defaults to 11 am. We can often offer flexibility in pick-up or drop-off times, with an additional fee ahead of time in busy season, or as a complementary feature in the off-season.Our camper is non-smoking for the comfort of our renters and family with asthma. Any smoking will incur an additional $300 cleaning fee.

This was our second time renting the camper, and we still love it. Pickup and dropoff is smooth, the communication from Annadele is great, and setting up / tearing down the camper is easy and intuitive. The beds are comfortable, the interior is roomy, and I can't wait until we have a chance to rent it again. 10/10

Daniel and Annadelle have done a beautiful job restoring this camper. It is immaculate with nice touches like cozy bedding and is impressively roomy inside. Our favorite part was opening up the windows for 360 degree views and enjoying the feeling of sleeping outside. The camper is very easy to tow and the listing included everything we needed for our trip. Thank you Daniel and Annadelle for being such wonderful hosts and sharing your camper with our family! We had an awesome weekend and will definitely be requesting to rent again!

We had an excellent time with the trailer this weekend. We were first timers and made a couple of rookie mistakes but the owners were incredibly approachable and supportive when we texted to figure things out.

We can often offer early pick-up, late drop-off, or even flexible pick-up or drop-off windows for your convenience. This is complimentary as long as the timing isn't essential for another booking. Feel free to ask if that will help with your travel plans!
