What if I’ve never driven an RV before?


No problem, all you need is a valid driver’s licence with a minimum of 10 years driving experience and a tow vehicle, like a truck. Your tow vehicle needs a minimum tow capacity of 4000lbs / 1815 kg, with a working installed electric trailer brake controller and 7 pin connector.

This may sound complicated for the new camper, but it’s not. And, a full trailer orientation is included for all trailers. Rent RV BC is available to answer your questions and provide details.

Great news, too: your RV can be delivered to you anywhere in the lower mainland area, depending on location.

What about insurance for my RV?


Free. Insurance is no extra charge on all RV trailers at Rent RV BC and includes ICBC 5 million dollar liability and collision coverage. There’s not much more to say here.

How can I rent camping gear?


If you don’t have a budget to spend hundreds of dollars on camping gear for you and your family, then consider renting your camping gear. Check out Rent Eh Tent Canada, which offers anything and everything for camping, including tents, sleeping bags, back packs and even fishing gear. Just visit their website to look through all the gear to choose what you need. Camping vacation packages are also available, making camping an even easier vacation choice.

Once you’ve chosen your gear, simply contact Rent Eh Tent Canada directly to book. Speaking to a rep will help confirm the gear is available, and payment is easily taken over the phone; all complete with your confirmation email.

What if I damage the camping gear?


From time to time, camping gear does get damaged and, unfortunately, a camper is responsible for damaged gear during the rental period. Campers will need to pay for the replacement cost of the damaged gear.

Good news: in some cases, the gear may only need a simple repair. Rent Eh Tent Canada will try not to charge customers for repairs in most cases. After all, friendliness is a Canadian quality!

Is rented camping gear clean?


Yes. All camping gear is inspected for cleanliness after each rental. Sleeping bags and kitchen kits are washed after each rental. A quick email to Rent Eh Tent Canada will help you get all the details. 

The goal is to ensure your camping experience is what you want it to be. Health and safety is always a priority.
