FAQ

Q: I've never been camping before, are tents difficult to set up?
A: Tents come with setup instructions, and first-timers have said that setup is a breeze.

Q: How many people can sleep in a tent?
A: Each tent can sleep 1-2 people very comfortably.

Q: Can these tents be used in the rain?
A: Tents come with both a ground cloth (footprint), and rain fly. They're also waterproofed, so rain won't be a problem. However, during storms with lightning, it's best to go inside a structure.

Q: What if something is damaged during rental?
A: Regular wear is not a problem. However... rips, tears, burns, and less are examples of non-wear issues that you'll be charged for (up to the full replacement cost of the item).

Q: How are supplies cleaned before use?
A: Sleeping bags are cleaned using a commercial washer between use. Tents are hand cleaned and inventoried between each use. Mess kits are mechanically cleaned between each rental.

Q: What's your cancellation policy?
A: Reservations can be cancelled up to 5 days in advance for a full refund.

Q: What temperature are the sleeping bags rated for?

Q: Will you expand to other cities?
