Deactivated Water System: The rental units are not insulated in the same way your house might be and as a result, there are many potential freeze points in the water system which often lead to lasting damage. With this in mind, we winterize and deactivate the freshwater systems for winter rentals. The sinks, showers, or any holdings tanks will not be available for use. We suggest bringing your own water in portable containers that you can be used for drinking and dishes instead.
Keeping Warm: Many of our rental units come equipped with either an inbuilt heater, which pulls directly from the diesel tank or propane tank in the unit. Some of the units have an optional small propane heater. We suggest that you pack warm and check the temperatures for the period of time you plan on renting. Please note, while these items will provide warmth, being in a rental unit during winter will not feel equivalent to being indoors and you will likely still want to layer up! (Pro Tip: Nothing feels better than slippers after a day of snow boots!)
Using the Pop Top: The pop tops are intended to sustain a lot of weight and you might be surprised how heavy snow can be! For those renting units with pop tops, it will be your responsibility to ensure that the pop-top is completely clear of snow accumulation before raising, or while the pop top is up. The pop top has canvas siding, and while this is has some weather resistant qualities it is still a canvas material.
