  Each trailer rental requires a Rental Contract.  A booking reservation is not secured until a Contract is completed.
  Print a copy of a Rental Contract    for your review and completion (requires Adobe Acrobat Reader software). 

A Damage Security Deposit of $500 is required in advance of the trailer pick-up.  Upon return of the trailer, we will inspect the condition of the unit both inside and out, take account of all amenities, and will refund the deposit, or balance thereof, after any damages have been repaired. The Security Deposit can be paid by credit card or cash.

Unfortunately accidents can happen to anyone.  So to help alleviate the worry and stress Rent-A-Tent  includes Trailer Damage Insurance (TDI) with every rental*, which provides physical damage insurance for accidental damages occurring to the Trailer in excess of $500 during the rental period.  (*TDI coverage is only provided and included to the Renter provided the signed Rental Contract is received by Rent-A-Tent 7 calendars days in advance of the rental period for processing.)

Below are two examples of trailer damages we have experienced over years:
Picture 1 -  Renter was rear-ended by another vehicle. The repair cost was $1500 and the Renter as covered.
Picture 2 -  Renter hit an other vehicle on his way home from a camping trip. This trailer was a "write-off". TDI covered it.
1) Renter's must "qualify" for the Trailer Damage Insurance coverage such as in having a good driving record (ie- Star 4 and above auto insurance rating with minor traffic violations). 2) Rent-A-Tent must also receive the completed and signed Rental Contract 10 calendar days prior to start of the rental period in order to submit, process, and approve the insurance application and coverage. Otherwise TDI is not offered by Rent-A-Tent Trailers. Please contact Rent-A-Tent for more information.

The initial Reservation Deposit is not refundable in the event of reservation cancellation of the rental by the Renter. However, the purchase of Cancellation Insurance allows you the ability to cancel your rental up to 15 calendars days prior to your reserved pick-up date and be refunded the Reservation Deposit less a $25 administration fee.   Cancellation insurance is optional and must be paid in full at time of booking. Cancellation Insurance costs $50.00 per weekly rental. Please contact Rent-A-Tent Trailers for more details.

Do it for Me Delivery
For a small fee, we will deliver a trailer to your pre-reserved camp site and set it up. At the end of your camping holiday we will come back to take down the trailer and return it to our place of business.  Delivery of a trailer is at the discretion and availability of Rent-A-Tent Trailers.  Camping destination campground must be within a 30 minute radius of Barrie.  Popular Provincial Park destinations include Earle Rowe PP (Alliston), Bass Lake PP, Mara PP, and McCrae PP (all near Orillia).
 Some conditions apply - please call for more details. 

As a policy we only accept reservation bookings for camping destinations within the Province of Ontario.  If you would like to you travel out of the province then please call us to discuss.

Your tow vehicle must be equipped with:
              -   a secure Class II or higher trailer hitch assembly complete with appropriate receiver ball mount  (ie. draw bar / tongue bar)
              -   a  2" trailer ball
              -   electrical wiring plug with a "flat four" plug (most cars & vans),  or a "7-way round" plug (most pick-up trucks) wiring harness. 


Please ensure the electrical wiring is working properly prior to trailer pick-up.
The top of trailer ball height should be between 16" - 18" off the ground.

When loaded with our supplies the 10' box tent trailer weigh approximately 1,550 lbs.
Check with your car manufacturer for the tow ratings of your vehicle.  Most mini-vans, SUV's, pick-up trucks, and mid-sized 6 cylinder cars can easily tow our trailers.  Tow ratings for compact cars (4 cylinder motor) are limited. Again, please check with your vehicle manufacturer.


Sometime before your departure we will give you a full demonstration of the unit, showing you where everything is and how everything works, both inside and outside.  A "hands-on" Demonstration Appointment is mandatory and takes about 45 minutes.  Appointments can be arranged at times convenient to your schedule.

We do our best to work around your schedule for trailer pick-ups. However during our High Season (July and August) reservations can only be booked from Sunday to the following Saturday (two week max). Trailers are due back no later than 4pm on the last day of your rental. 

Late returns really mess things up for everybody and can delay the next rental family's departure.  Trailers are often booked to go out to the next family a few hours after a drop-off.   When you return a trailer we need time to inspect it, give it a bath, and position it for the next family.  So as a discouragement, late charges may apply upon a trailer not being returned to Rent-A-Tent  by 4:00pm on the return date, or as otherwise agreed to by Rent-A-Tent.

Please be advised that Rent-A-Tent  does not include a trailer awning with the rental unit . There was a time some time ago when we did include the awning but unfortunately we experienced just too many awning damages as they easily rip. We recommend renters simply bring a large tarp or kitchen tent.

While not mandatory, we recommend that renters reserve camp sites that have hydro electricity services. This allows the trailer's electrical features to be fully utilized such as the 12v interior/ exterior lighting, the 120v electric outlets, and the fridge and furnace.

Please be advised that  trailer rental units do not come equipped with a 12v battery pack for use in the absence of hydro electric services at the camp site, and that the use of 12v battery packs on a rental unit is prohibited unless otherwise provided by Rent-A-Tent for the operation of the roof lift system.

We hope this answers many of your questions.s.
If you still have more please feel free to us.

We're looking forward to another great summer of camping !
