Camping Tent Rental: Pocket- Friendly Alternative

Nov 20, 2007
If you go for camping trips only once in a long while and abhor the idea of spending a lot of money on buying new tents and equipment, camping tent rentals present the solution to your dilemma. In fact one can find camping tents to suit every budget and every requirement.

Rather than buying expensive camping tents that do nothing but gather dust lying around in your attic, you can save money by renting camping tents. In fact, if there has been a long lapse of time between your last camping trip and this one, you can also have the luxury of trying out the latest and best tents through camping tent rental, before you decide to buy one. On the other hand, if you are a camping enthusiast who ventures into the wilderness frequently, instead of shipping your camping gear while traveling to your destination by plane, rental is a relief. In fact, you can choose between the rental locations.

Local store

At a local store, you have the advantage of examining all the different varieties of tents and get the information about their features from the sales persons there. You also do not need to bother with rental reservations at your camping destination. The downside is that if the main focus of the store is not on rentals, there might only be limited choice available, and even then, there are chances that the tents are old or tattered.

Chain Store

The websites of many chain stores display their range of rental tents. You can in fact make the reservations of these tents online and when you reach your camping area, you can pick up these tents. If you are traveling by plane or if your car does not have sufficient space, these rental pickups become a blessing. However, in case of cancellation of your camping trip, you must cancel your tent reservation immediately, so that you are not charged for the use of that tent.

Direct Online Rental

Usually, it is observed that outfitters who are predominantly into sales have much lesser variety of rental camping tents, in terms of sizes and styles, rather than those who also specialize in rentals, along with sales. You just need to select the camping tent that you want to rent, and it will be shipped straight to your home before you leave for your trip. This is a great option if you can carry this tent further to your campsite in your car.
After your trip, you need to send the tent back to the company you rented it from.

Campsite Package

If you are one of those people who are raring to go and want all your equipment ready in place when you reach your campsite and yet feel helpless and frustrated as your car cannot accommodate all your camping equipment, you can now even get all your camping equipment including sleeping bags, tents and lanterns at your campsite itself. You can choose a package deal while reserving the campsite, which include the rental of this equipment. You can compare the prices for rental being demanded by your campground operators, to those that the rental shops near the site are asking for.

You can choose from any of these options, however what remain of utmost importance are the more important criteria of tent size (how many people would live in the tent), your budget, season and any other special feature you may need to enjoy a great trip.
