About Donald Cudmore

I have a lifetime love of camping and RV's. My wife and I have 3 teenagers. As a young child, my family had a series of VW Westphalia campers, including the model that had the adjoining tent. A favourite VW trip was across Canada from Halifax to Victoria and then down the west coast to Los Angeles. Later, we graduated to Winnebago's, and our fondest family memories were of regular non-stop driving trips from Halifax to Florida including a visit to Disney World the first year it opened, and later the Fort Wilderness campground in the first year it opened. Later, we had a converted van (Campwagon, built in Quebec) which had a more efficient layout than the big Winnebago. On the camping side, I was Boy Scout for many years and enjoyed any kind of tenting. When my own children were small, we car camped with a large Eureka Bon Echo tent which kept us dry and comfortable for many years. It was a high quality tent and it is still as good as new even after 10 years of use. My interest in having my own RV and renting it came from terrific experiences I’ve had over the past 5 years renting other people’s RV’s. First we rented a restored 1975 VW van in Florida (Crazy Karl) so I could give my kids a sense of the VW camper experiences that I had as a kid. Then we had a wonderful trip in an Escape Campervan from Las Vegas through the Mojave desert to LA to Malibu and back through the Death Valley. This was the first time that we had camped with an RV that had the kitchen at the back and a James Baroud rooftop tent on top, and we discovered that we really liked both features. And, then last year, we rented a large motorhome from Outdoorsy in Victoria, which we used for a trip to Tofino, and gave our kids a Winnebago-style trip. In choosing our own version of a “modular motor home”, we opted to use the innovative Intech Luna as a very comfortable, well-made, lightweight trailer that would fit in our carport. The combination of the fancy kitchen and big beautiful front window was very attractive to us. By adding a rooftop tent to our tow vehicle we gained the ability to house our whole family, but in a way that the adults and kids get to sleep in different places. And, depending on the type of trip we are doing and how many people are going, sometimes we just need the trailer and sometimes we just need the rooftop tent. In both cases we chose top of the line products. And, to make it cost effective, we are renting them out on Outdoorsy. The great thing about our modular motor home is that whenever they aren’t rented we use them to get out of the city and explore the countryside. Along the way we’ve seen more of Ontario in the past year than we’d seen in the previous 20. We are blessed with stunning national and provincial parks. Now we get to see a lot more of them!

Gigi is the perfect little trailer. She’s very easy to tow, in great condition and well equipped. It’s great value as the owner did not charge us for any extras. We didn’t have power on our trip so it was great to have an inverter which gave us enough power to use the basics. The whole process from pick up to drop off was seamless. The owner is very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend!

This was our first time renting a camper and Don was amazing. He very patiently explained every small detail about the camper. My son truly enjoyed this trip and it was by far our most comfortable camping experience.

Gigi helped me to achieve the best trip since I was a child.
I spent time with people I thought I would never see again. I met people I thought I would never meet.

Gigi made our cold adventure night very warm and comfortable. My daughter (2.5yrs old) love her so much that she cried when we returned it. I guess that’s how you will know that she really enjoyed Gigi.
Don was also very helpful and informative. The detailed instructions that he gave us on how to take care of Gigi wont get you wrong. Response very quickly and very nice. I can’’t thank him enough for letting us experience Gigi. We are definitely gonna try to book her again for the summer.

Donald was fantastic! The trailer was clean and well maintained. Everything you would expect to need for a weekend away was included. I’d recommend renting from Donald if you have the chance.

We had such a great experience renting from Don! He was very easy to communicate and coordinate with throughout the process and provided a very thorough and helpful walk-through of Gigi before our trip. Gigi is a fantastic trailer and we could not have had more fun with her on our camping trip! She was equipped with everything we needed - no small detail was overlooked! We would definitely rent from Don again and recommend Gigi to others :)

Donald was fantastic. Very friendly. Very helpful. We didn't have to use his trailer to its full potential, however it provided us with exactly what we were looking for. A warm, dry, comfortable bed. Without question we would rent from Donald again in the future. it was perfect for us. Karen & Bob.

Don is a fantastic host. Everything was explained in detail and he obviously has pride in his rental. I would recommend renting from him 100%. He makes sure that not only will his trailer be safe, but so will you. We look forward to renting Gigi again if it takes us longer than expected to buy our own.
