Social Distance in an RV and get nature keen during quarantine! Think outside the box and avoid the confines of 4 walls!

Canada is a country that tops many bucket lists. Now is the perfect opportunity to plan and to explore the great Canadian wilderness. Find the hidden gems of your own province and enjoy the peace and quiet of isolating yourself in nature. Escape the TVs and screens and embrace the idea of disconnecting and getting outside. Leave the city behind and use this time as an opportunity to roam with the freedom and flexibility to go where you want in an RV rental.

As we adapt to the current situation, we have introduced contact-free RV rental collection and drop off. Providing the best customer service is still our top priority. Just a phone call away, we are still offering 24-hour assistance, including our on-road support. Additionally, we will minimize the time you are at our rental depot.

Perks of an RV rental

Renting a self-contained RV or motorhome is a great option to a self-isolate, staycation, or enjoy a safe holiday close to home. Here are the perks:

Convenience

An RV comes with all the comforts of home! Conveniently stocked with all necessary kitchen utensils, lots of storage space, comfortable seating, beds, and heat. Just book online, pick up your rental and you have everything you need for your own private vacation home on wheels. With a washroom, hot shower, and kitchen you can go anywhere and easily keep your distance from others.

Escape the Boredom

An RV rental allows you to self isolate and social distance without being stuck “inside” and going stir crazy. Enjoy the local scenery, explore some new roads and find your new favourite camp spot all from the comfort of an RV. Escape the boredom and get into nature. 

Travel Freedom

Enjoy complete freedom. When it is time to travel again there is nothing like the freedom of the open road. Drive when you want, stop when you desire and go anywhere in an RV rental. Find your remote piece of Canadian paradise and go for a hike, relax by a lake and get the binoculars to take a closer look at the birds and wildlife. Take the canoe out for a paddle and cast your line to catch some dinner! The options are endless while still maintaining self-isolation and a safe social distance.

Portable Guest Room

If exploring the open road isn’t what you are looking for, an RV rental is the perfect additional guest room. Park the RV in your driveway and immediately have fully self-sustained guest accommodation. An RV rental is an excellent option to fully self isolate at home. Keep your family safe and stay comfortably and conveniently in the driveway. In Medicine Hat, the local government is recommending people with large families use RVs to self-isolate.

Self Contained RVs Rental Models

During this time of self-isolation and social distancing, we offer a variety of self-contained RV models to meet your needs and budget.

Our Class C RV is a great option for maximum space and luxurious comfort. Fill your water tank, stock your fridge, pack the adventure gear and you can be self-sufficient for days.

Rent the 10’ Truck Camper and have the freedom to go anywhere! The camper has less space and luxury inside, but you are still fully self-contained and can comfortably sleep 3. Travel the gravel roads with ease and confidence to get to your adventure destination.
