Be the envy of the campground! Our brand new 2016 Retro 176S camper offers all the amenities of today with the style of an era gone by--the vintage camper.
Who can resist the smell of a "Cup o' Joe" at sunrise or the the fun of roasting marshmallows over a campfire? Yeah, I knew you couldn't! That's why you're looking for the great outdoors experience. And that's what we offer--not just a camper, but an EXPERIENCE.
Why rent from a big-box store with an empty RV when you can rent a fully-outfitted camper from a real person? We provide all the essentials. The Retro is complete with all sheets, blankets, towels, cookware, plates, cups, mugs, flatware, an outdoor propane cookstove, a battery-operated lantern, board games, and outdoor camp chairs. All of this is INCLUDED in your rental rate! Like, that's a no-brainer.
You are welcome to tow the camper to your preferred camping area or we will deliver & set it up for you (see optional fees). For convenience, we can even stock your camper with groceries!
You have probably never heard of Tallassee, but we're located just 3 miles from the western edge of the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. It is convenient to Townsend, Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Cades Cove, Elkmont, the world-famous "Tail of the Dragon," and a number of places in the Cherokee or Nantahala National Forests. It's also not too far from the Hiawassee River, the Ocoee River, and the Nantahala River (extremely curvy drive there). We're happy to suggest places for both off-grid camping (some places totally free), national park campgrounds, nearby private campgrounds, or camping areas right in town (such as Townsend, Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge).
Our Retro RV sleeps 2 in a queen bed plus one shorter adult or two small kids on the dinette bed. There is room in the floor for a twin air mattress or cot, but depending on size, the mattress may block about half of the exit door. If you need room for more family or friends, we offer a rental tent that sleeps 4. It is an easy-set tent. No mattresses or linens are provided for the tent.
* Maximum delivery distance is a 1 hr 30 min radius of zip code 37878 (Tallassee, TN). This will generally be under 100 miles, but may be fewer miles depending on mountain roads. You can check the drive time on Google Maps using our zip code or city.
* Delivery & set up fees are based on distance from our location.
* 0-50 mile radius is $100 delivery
* 50-100 mile radius is $200 delivery
* Due to the time needed to deliver, set up, and drive back home, we are unable to deliver beyond 100 miles.
NO PICKUPS, DROP OFFS, OR DELIVERIES ON SUNDAY.
There are no exceptions to this policy. Ben is a pastor and it's not possible to arrange pick-ups, deliveries, or drop-offs that day due to our busy schedule and the distance between the church and where our camper stays. Please plan your trip accordingly.
NO SMOKING inside or outside the camper. No clothing, bedding, or personal items with any smoke smell are to be placed in the camper.
NO PETS. We love to travel with our pets too, but pet claws will tear the camper leather dinette cushions. These will be very expensive for you to replace.
