Fully equipped ultralight weight towable trailer for your camping enjoyment. The trailer has a modular living system with a full size bed, bunk beds for two kids, kitchenette and table. Pet friendly! [2022 end-of-season updates] Thanks everyone for a great year! We've had some great experiences with the Happy One. We've adjusted the base price for last-minute summer / fall trips and are prepping for road trip season (hint take the camper south, great daily rates)! Stay tuned for 2023 pricing/equipment updates, we are shooting for lower overall price, longer bookings and more optional equipment. [end update] The trailer itself can be towed by almost any vehicle with a hitch (1100lbs base weight). When power is available, the unit has an AC and small heater. Two awnings, and a breakfast bar/table attachment make outdoor living fun and styling. The rear door opens up so you can enjoy the outdoor air during the day. Windows have screens and shades. Chairs (4), and one-pot style cooking equipment are supplied and everything is cleaned between uses. Locals... Brookline/Boston/Newton etc... Happy to drop off trailer, in an off-street or properly permitted on-street location, the night (or two) before your trip if mutually agreeable. You can take your time loading up your bikes, clothes, groceries in the back, hookup and go! Tell the town parking office its a moving trailer!

Recommendations

After booking we will work with you to make sure you have your plans set for a good time. If you wish we are happy to help you find the perfect camping spot in the New England area. Consider Wolfe's Neck Farm in Portland Maine, its our favorite spot.

Most importantly we will also help you plan the route out to the campground and route back.

Other things to note

The camper is dog friendly but you may not take the camper to music festivals, off-roading and Conan O'Brian is absolutely not welcome.

We strongly discourage leaving the Boston area on a Friday afternoon, and try to avoid coming back to Boston area at 12-3pm on a Sunday. If you are a new driver of towable trailers we recommend leaving mid-week or Sunday, or early in the day.

The spark behind Boston Camps came after meeting up with some friends at the park. It was towards the end of the summer and we were recounting our summer adventures. After mentioning our various camping trips we heard a familiar refrain… “We should do that, but I haven’t camped in ages”. We will be creating and posting content to to help families navigate camping in New England. Feel free to checkout our listings, we've attempted to translate our experiences into a great, rentable and preconfigured towable trailer. Happy camping!

So much to say, so few characters! This rental was awesome. From pickup to drop off James was great about showing me all the features and hookups. The process was smooth and our enjoyment was through the roof. A very comfortable, well-designed unit it had everything we needed. Navigating the roads was even easier than I hoped and we slept soundly next to Lake Winnipesaukee in NH. The many windows gave us a nice breeze we didn't even need the A/C. It accommodated my wife and I along with our 12 yo 115 lb Lab, he loved that he could stretch out on the floor right next to us. I highly recommend this rental to anyone curious about trying a towed RV for a glimpse into the life, we'd rent it again in a heartbeat. Also, a really fun thing was the curiosity and interest of passerby's where we parked. So many people asked where we got it, what was the inside like, how was it to sleep in. I wished I had flyers to pass out! James - thanks again for helping us have a very memorable weekend!

Rented for a quick day trip. Super easy to hook up and tow. 2 small kids love the bunk. Came with everything needed for a relaxing trip with the family. I specifically needed the AC to keep the wife and kids happy campers and it didn't disappoint.

I had a great experience with James’ camper. It was easy for my Mazda CX-5 to tow and James was a very helpful host. Would recommend to anyone!

Amazing experience for our family of four. Lightweight trailer was easy to pull with my SUV (Volvo XC-90). Pick up was a breeze -- James walked me through everything and had a height-adjustable hitch for me to use. Our two kids (7 years old) loved the bunk beds and we slept very comfortably. We pulled the kitchenette out while we were at camp at it was great -- including a Kovea Cube Stove with 2 butane canisters that we used to make coffee and make breakfast.

Q.What flexibility is available for picking up and dropping off the RV?
A.
I strongly prefer to arrange pickup and drop-off at off peak hours. Happy to issue discount codes to encourage night before dropoff.

Q.How do the electric, water and sewage hook up work while setting up at the campground?
A.
We provide a 50ft 30amp rated extension cord with a special connector to hookup to the RV. There is both a 30amp connector and a 15amp converter available as well to connect to power. Water can be connected to the kitchenette (inside or outside) via a 50ft hose with filter. Kitchenette has a 5 gallon tank which can be filled manually. When plugged in the kitchenette can pump from from the tank. Gray water (used water) can be stored in the provided grey container.
