Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Is anything required from me before I pick up my camper?
A. Yes, all renters must leave a deposit for half the value of rental in order for your camper to be reserved. Deposits can be made by providing us with a credit card number and expiration date, cash, or etransfer (email@example.com) We suggest that all our renters get familiar with the Boler Manual (pdf file). Renters will have to present a copy of their vehicle registration and drivers license at the time of pick up to confirm validity of drivers license and insurance.

To check what amount of insurance you currently have, check your insurance. Additional insurance can be purchased at a nominal fee a few days before your scheduled pick up time and can be purchased for for the duration of your rental. To purchase this additional insurance contact your local insurance broker.

In order to secure your safety, we require no less than a Class II hitch which is attached to the frame of your tow vehicle. This class of hitch is rated to a maximum load of 3500 lbs. Clearance from the ground to the ball of the hitch should be 14″. A 1 7/8” diameter ball and a 7-pin round connector for running and taillights are also required. An adaptor is available for those who have 4-prong flat wiring. Tow bumpers will not be accepted. Be sure to check all your components are working properly. If you need to have a hitch installed on your vehicle or require assistance with your tow vehicle wiring contact Mitchell Welding at (204) 284-4994.
