It’s easy to fantasize about dropping everything and heading out to the woods. However, the time needed to gather your camping gear and formulate a solid plan can quickly derail your last-minute camping dream.

Prep time doesn’t have to prevent you from having a comfortable camping experience.



Rentable trailers, vans, and RVs are popping up across the country, providing campers with a comfortable camping experience that doesn’t require a huge investment. Nature Dens is one such company, specializing in micro travel trailers that can be pulled by your car.

Nature Dens is currently renting their micro travel trailers out of Fort Collins, Colorado (they’ll deliver one to you within 30 minutes of the city), and they’ll soon be launching in LA and Chicago. If you’re looking to explore the vast desert of Southern California or relax along the Great Lakes shorelines of the Midwest, Nature Dens will soon be a convenient option for tiny trailer rentals.

These cute compact campers are fully stocked with all of the basic luxuries you have at home, including a refrigerator and TV.

The Dyrt CEO, Kevin Long, had a chance to talk to the founder and tour the Nature Dens 2-person micro travel trailer.

Their selection of micro travel trailers currently includes a 2-person trailer, 2-person with bath, and a 4-person trailer. Fees to rent these micro-trailers range from $165 to $100 a night.

Each trailer is outfitted with either one or two queen-sized beds, comfortable bedding, WiFi, a TV, and heating and air conditioning. You can cook in your kitchen area, which is either inside the trailer or opens up off of the back. Kitchens are equipped with a microwave, power outlets, a stove top, and a refrigerator. If you opted for one of the trailers with a bath, then you will also find a shower and toilet inside.

For some added security, the door to each trailer locks with a key.You can store extra items without any hassle or clutter in the overhead shelving areas above the bed. The back is equipped with a two-bike rack for those looking to hit the trails.
