RV Trailer Tips
Camping together as a family creates memories
that last a lifetime. From building sand castles on the beach
to roasting marshmallows on an open fire, camping has something
With a Camp 'n Style trailer, gone is the hassle of setting up
a tent, packing pots, pans, and dishes, sleeping on an air mattress
(which goes flat in the middle of the night), or freezing on cold
Mom and dad can have their own bedroom complete with a queen size
bed and children can sleep in one of two bunk beds or pull out
the larger couch bed or dinnette. The cupboards are stocked with
all the pots, pans, and dishes you'll need. There's also a slide-out
which makes the RV trailer feel more like a living room at home,
and a full-size bath complete with a tub and shower.
When camping with little ones, there's always a few important
things to remember. Dry camping involves conserving both water
and power, so remember to keep the water pump switch off so little
Johnny doesn't run all your water down the toilet. Also, keep
little fingers away from the control panels so you don't have
switches left on which will run down your batteries.
But most importantly, take advantage of the quality time shared
by you and your family. Take lots of pictures, cherish the moments,
and have a fun, safe family getaway.

Your rental trailer has many of the same conveniences as your
home. But unlike your home which has an unlimited power and water
supply, your trailer does not. Unless you're in a campground with
full hook-ups, you & your family need to be conservative with
the water and power.
Each Camp 'n Style trailer is equipped with 12-volt power, so
you'll need to remember to turn off lights when you are not using
them, keep the heater fan off during the day, and only turn on
the water pump when it is needed.
To conserve water when camping, turn on the shower, get wet, then
turn off the switch on the shower head while you soap up, turn
back on the shower head, and quickly rinse off.
Another good idea to teach the family is to put water in a bowl
to wash hands instead of running the faucet all the time.
Before using the toilet, run a little bit of water in the bowl,
that way you will use less water when flushing.
For campsite dishwashing, fill up both sides of the sink and wash
the dishes in one side and rinse in the other.
Your RV trailer is equipped with both water and power monitors,
so remember to check them periodically.

Thank you once again for our rental experience
at Glamis. The trailer was in perfect condition and we really enjoyed
having all the comforts of home. We will be back!
