We JUST took this cutie to the RV spa where it was worked over by expert hands. (Too hot and steamy...? Okay. I'll tone it down.) Our little Honeymooner now has a brand new, propane hot-water tank; the propane delivery pressure has been double checked; it has a beautifully reconditioned fridge/freezer that works like a champ on both 30-amp electricity or propane. There is also a new microwave and a flat-screen TV with a built-in DVD player.
Since it is a classic, to rent this rig, you need to sign an insurance binder with your insurance company. You will want a truck or SUV with a transmission capable of towing 3,000 pounds (dry weight). Just like any other travel trailer you might tow, your tow vehicle will need to be equipped with a towing package that includes a brake controller and a plugin on the rear of the vehicle that our trailer can plug into so the signal, clearance lights and breaks on the trailer function properly for you.
A basic rental comes with everything you need for "full hookups"; 1. potable water hose (for the spigot in your campsite), 2. sewer connection kit (for the sewer connection in your campsite), and 3. a 30-amp electrical cord (for the 30-amp electrical supply in your campsite). If you plan to operate some of the time on battery power, please know that, as is the case with many travel trailers, when under battery power only, the microwave, flat-screen TV and any plug-in appliances (toaster, coffee pot) will not work and the refrigerator/freezer must be switched over to propane mode to function. You will also want to plan to charge the batteries on 30-amp electrical service to recharge them from time to time to keep things working properly. This is no different than any other travel trailer you might rent.
A basic rental includes:
Cookware; 1 mixing bowl, grater, cooking utensils (ladle, spaghetti spoon, stirring spoon, spatula, rubber spatula, set of measuring spoons & cups, silicone basting brush, ice cream scoop, pizza cutter, wine opener, can opener ... I think that's it).
Gas Conventional Oven; 1 enamel roasting pan that also works as a casserole pan,1 broiler pan,1 cookie sheet,1 cookie cooling rack.
Gas Stove Top; large lid to fit both frying pan & stockpot, 1 large sauce pan with lid & 1 small sauce pan with lid.
Tableware; reusable metal flatware (fork, spoon, knife sets), reusable Melmac dinnerware (dinner plates, smaller plates, bowls, & drink ware (not glass), coffee cups, woven paper-plate holders
Broom & Dustpan.
Outdoor items; 17-foot awning, 5 camp chairs.
23 gallons fresh water.
30 gallons grey water from kitchen sink.
30 gallons black & grey from toilet & bath area (sink & shower).
Linens are available if requested (towel sets, sheets, blankets & pillows) as an add-on & payable in person when you pick up the RV but you might prefer bringing yours from home. For the beds, sleeping bags probably work the very best, but we do not have them to rent because they are too hard to maintain for rental use.
