Camping gets you outside, connects you with nature and is a great way to have some fun and freedom in the outdoors. And like most outdoor activities, equipment is required.
Camping equipment is as much or as little as you want it to be, but for the best and most comfortable and enjoyable camping experience, you’ll want some basics. Like a durable tent, an easy to use camp kitchen, a warm and cozy sleeping bag and mattress and if you’re backpacking, a comfortable backpack to carry everything in.
But, there’s so much more and it’s easy to go down the rabbit hole of shopping for equipment. And before you know it, you’ve spent a ton of money on a bunch of gear that you might only use a couple of times a year.
And that’s just one reason of many as to why you should rent your camping equipment instead of buy.
In this article we’ll take a look at some great reasons why renting camping equipment is better than buying.
Save money! Buying a durable camp set up like a tent, sleeping bag, camp kitchen, cooler and chairs can easily add up to a lot of money. A high quality tent can run you $300 or more, a well-insulated cooler can run $200 and a sleeping bag that’s going to keep you warm will be at least $150. And then there’s the accessories, camp kitchen and everything else that goes into your camping checklist. Phew, that adds up quickly! So instead of spending $1500 or more, rent for everything you need for your weekend adventure for a fraction of the price.
At TNX we offer complete camping rentals starting at only $39 a day. Everything you need, besides food and personal items, at a super affordable price. And we only rent the best and most durable gear to keep you warm, prepared and having fun outside.
Sustainability. In a world of more and more stuff being produced, why not be kinder to our environment. Producing outdoor equipment like most things takes natural recourses, puts chemicals into our air and water and adds to our landfills. Why not take a much needed and easy to do step towards sustainability in the outdoors and rent gear?
Plus, sharing is caring and think of how much less pollutants and trash there would be if there was 1 tent being used by 20 people instead of by just one person. And, most rental camping gear is extremely high quality, well-made, lasts longer and much more durable. Instead of buying a cheap tent that isn’t very durable and needs to be replaced every few years, how about renting a super high quality tent that holds up way longer and leaves less in our landfills.
It’s easy. With online camping rental shops like TNX, renting is so easy and convenient. You can shop online and have all the camping gear you need shipped right to your door or to your destination and then just send it back when you’re done.
Save space. Owning camping equipment is just one more thing that takes up space in your garage or home. If you live in an apartment or a smaller living space with limited room, then don’t take up more space with gear like a giant cooler and camp chairs.
Try out the latest and greatest. By renting equipment you can try the latest in design, comfort, materials and features. Instead of using your 10 year old tent that’s not as waterproof as it used to be, rent a brand new one that’s in perfect condition, has the latest features and will keep you dry, comfortable and give you peace of mind.
Support Local. By renting from a company like TNX you’re supporting a local and family owned business in Central Oregon and that means something. Instead of buying from a big box store, find a local shop or online rental service that supports their local community.
Top quality equipment. Camping and outdoor rental companies know a thing or two about the right equipment to do the job. So, trust them and know that you are getting top quality gear for your camping adventure that will keep you comfy, relaxed and will be easy to use.
If you love camping, but don’t own much gear, no worries. In fact, you’re better off because there are rental options out there like TNX that will save you money and time, ship directly to you, only offer high quality gear and all of this leads to a more sustainable camping option.
