About the host, Riveted Rentals
Tony was great. He was very informative and helpful through the entire process
Great experience! The Airstream was beautiful and the owners really put thought into what items would be needed. to make guest comfortable. The Airstream is compact but works. We stayed at many RV Parks and when faced with a problem we reached out to owners. We had the Airstream delivered to our home and the owners did a walk through and answered all of our questions. During our trip the communication was excellent. They were always available within moments of us sending a text. I can't say enough about the communication. They would check back in to see if were ok and randomly just check in to say hi. I keep a journal and log and would send them photos from our journey. We traveled for 20 days. We were a 3 1/2 hours late returning Airstream and the owners worked with us.
We ran into a problem with propane tanks and could not find a truck stop that had refillable propane close to our KOA and the KOA we we had reserved couldn't refill us because we were arriving late and nobody would be around to help. ( KOA's should have someone on property to help after hours) So we had to use 20 gallon propane tanks which meant we had to take off the 30 gallon tanks adjust the propane hauler to the right size and strap it down. All while being stuck in a rainstorm. We contacted the owners and they worked with us on our late arrival. Great Guys! I would suggest to anyone renting that you make sure to check your propane tanks especially traveling in the winter. Heat is important. WE would Highly recommended this Airstream to anyone who ask.

We were newbie RVers and spontaneously decided that, given that Workations may be a large part of our future we should do some initial research on whether RVing would work for us and what kind of RV we wanted (Trailer, Motorhome, Toy Hauler etc). Our first step was to look locally for rental RVs and we came across Tony's rental airstream on Outdoorsy. It looked so cute that we knew it had to be the one we rented first.
We obviously had a lot of questions and Tony was quick to respond and incredibly helpful. Who knew you need a Trailer Brake Controller to tow an airstream? (I do now!)
When we picked the airstream up, Tony and Ross showed us round and explained how everything works. These guys have really put a lot of thought into how they present and equip the trailer for rental. They include so much in the rental (unlike other local rentals) that you really can "turn up and drive away" with nothing more than your clothes and some food. They even provide a Yeti cooler to put it all in.
Once we had hitched the trailer to our truck we were off. It was our first time towing anything this large so first stop was at home to do a little practice reversing. I'd be lying if I said we were now good at it, but we reversed successfully into two camp pitches without killing each other so I consider that a win.
We set off for the Everglades and discovered that towing the trailer is a LOT easier than we had expected. The double axle makes it really stable and it towed perfectly. When we got to the campsite we hooked it up to the electric supply, turned on the propane and we were good to go.
First (and most important in Florida in September) is that the Air Conditioning is amazing. We were able to keep the trailer at a habitable 70F the whole time.
We then had a chance to really explore the trailer and all of the little touches the guys have included to make the stay perfect. From camp chairs to an outdoor RV rug. From all the cooking equipment you will need, to manuals on how every item in the trailer works. (For newbies like us, those manuals were a life saver.)
From gorgeously crisp, clean bedding to toiletries and bright white towels. And, second only to the AC, a Keurig AND Keurig capsules.
The trailer is compact but was easily livable, even with hellish temperatures outside and mosquitos the size of pterodactyls making outdoor living less attractive. I would imagine that, in the winter months when you can happily sit outdoors, you will have all the space you could possibly need.
We only used the trailer for a long weekend but both agreed we would have been happy to rent it for longer as it had everything we needed.
When it came time to leave and head home, we faced the joys of emptying grey and black water tanks. We were actually pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to empty the tanks and flush them through. Never going to be a favourite task but it wasn't totally gross.
Being new to camping we hadn't realised how long it would take us to pack up, empty tanks, get hitched etc so we were running late for return time. I text Tony and he was absolutely great about it and agreed we could return it an hour later at no extra cost.
All in all, I would absolutely recommend this Airstream to anyone who asks. It is a great little trailer and the guys are incredibly helpful and informative.

We absolutely loved our stay in Tony's airstream. It was just as described and had everything we needed (pots, pans, utensils, a grill, cooler, two chairs). The awning was great to protect us from the sun during the day. The shower is spacious and the bathroom was cute and tidy as well as the rest of the Airstream. We loved the little extras like games (Jenga, Uno, Scrabble and Connect Four). We would definitely rent again.
