NEW FOR 2023
In an effort to accommodate more rentals and to simplify the rental process we have decided to simplify JJ and go retro! If you rented with us last year you know that we offered bedding, cushion covers and other useful items along with the rental. This year we will be just renting out the camper itself and you can supply whatever accessories you would like for your adventure! We hope this will help us be even more flexible with rental periods!
A few things we love about our little pop-up...•Super lightweight (1200lbs) and compact which makes it great for first-time towers and campsites of any size/type. Easily towed by smaller vehicles.•Easy setup - We will show you everything that you need to know in order to feel 100% confident setting up upon arrival at your destination. We also offer delivery/setup for local destinations if you’d rather not tow or handle setup yourself.•It’s gone on many adventures! JJ is well cared for but still vintage. Although it has been updated and is in great shape, there are still some quirks that come with using an older rig. Please be patient and kind!•Add a sticker from your travels to the side of J-J!About Our Camper
We purchased this camper in 2021 from another local family in great condition. However, we had dreams of updating the interior to look and feel more "us" :) So, over a few hot summer weekends we painted, shiplapped, furnished, decorated and stocked our new little camper and we couldn't love it more. We are excited to "host" you and/or your family and share our labor of love with you!
What's includedOur camper will be stocked with:•Mattress protectors for bunk ends (2)
•Large 8x10 outdoor mat
• Leveling blocks for optimal stabilization
•A few games, cribbage board and coloring books/crayons
No tow vehicle? Or simply want to just show up with your things? We would be happy to deliver/setup/pickup at destinations within 30 miles for an additional fee. Just message us your destination and we will give you a custom price based upon your location :)Requires a 2” ball for the hitch and a 4-way connector for brakes/turn signals.
RecommendationsWe absolutely love the Black Hills! One of our favorite places to vacation is the Palmer Gulch KOA in Hill City. There are so many activities to entertain your kiddos (and you!) right at the campground - pools, playgrounds, rock climbing, mini golf, trail rides, ATV rentals, restaurants, ice cream shop and more. And of course, you have all the amazing natural landscape and entertainment of the Black Hills - hiking, swimming in lakes, wildlife sitings.... The campground is located right in the heart of the Black Hills so you are just a short drive to popular towns (such as Keystone + Hill City) and also just a few minutes from Mount Rushmore. If you are looking for a primitive camping experience, or don't have kids, this may not be the destination for you ;) BUT if you do, it is GREAT!If local to the Twin Cities, Wildwood Campground in Shafer, MN is a great quick weekend getaway for families. There is a pool, playground, pool table and mini-golf. They also do movie nights in the main lodge! It is also close to Taylors Falls and Interstate Park where you can check out the river, waterfalls and go hiking. There is a nice little swimming beach on the Wisconsin side of Interstate Park! We went to this campground for our first adventure in this pop-up!Other things to noteWith a dog of our own, we understand that it is difficult to leave pets behind when it comes to travel so we DO allow your fur babies. However, we ask that you pretty PLEASE keep them off of the beds and seating areas. Ideally, we would love if you brought your own pet bed for them to lay on inside the camper on the floor! We want to keep our rig as clean as possible for other renters and want to be able to continue to offer this option for future guests!No smoking inside the camper. We also request that if you do smoke, you maintain a good distance from the camper so that it does not travel inside the camper or soak into the canvas or linens inside the camper. There will be a deduction from your damage deposit if the camper or linens smell like smoke upon return. Again, we just want the camper to be clean and fresh for future campers! Thank you!!Anything beyond normal wear and tear will result in a deduction from the damage deposit so treat our camper gently! Please return it in the condition in which you received it :)

Meet your host, Tom + Tanya

Member since 2019

Hello fellow campers! We are Tom and Tanya and we live in Forest Lake, MN with our 3 kiddos and our black lab, Ellie. Last summer (after years of talking about it) we purchased a great little vintage pop-up, fully remodeled it and began our family camping adventures! We just welcomed another little camper to our family who isn't quite ready for adventuring so we want to share our little labor of love with others!

It was easy working with Tom and Tanya. We had a great time in the pop up at Frontenac State Park!

Tanya was so wonderful to work with she was helpful,accommodating, and friendly! I really enjoyed this camper, it is a great value and Tom and Tanya have really paid attention to the details that help to make a trip go smoothly. I felt like they genuinely cared that my families trip went well, they even gave us a gift basket! The space is great and updated. The accommodations like bedding,pack n play, kitchenware, and even coloring for kids made this trip much easier than it would have otherwise been. Putting the camper up and down was easier than expected once you get past putting the legs up or down. The door gave us some trouble but it could have been user error and Tanya had some great tips for it. The battery power gives the convenience of lights and if you are able to get to an electric hook up or use a generator there are also outlets for use! Thank you so much Tom and Tanya!

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
Pick-up/drop-off times are very flexible but also depend on the renters using the camper before and after you.
