  • We also offer different sleeping accommodations/options.  Please refer to our Sleeping Arrangement FAQ for more info.  If you have any questions, please reach out to us.  We’re here to help!

Insurance Coverage

Booking your RV

  • Our booking process is self serve, however we would be happy to guide you through the process.
  • If you are flexible, look for offseason rates.  Many campgrounds and parks are opened year round & often have less visitors.
  • If you are planning on visiting some of our popular parks, we recommend you book in advance. With our flexible cancellation policy, it’s risk free.
  • Keep in mind that many parks also offer first come, first serve campgrounds.  Renting a campervan allows for the freedom to plan as you go.

A week prior to departure

  • We will reach out to you in order to coordinate & firm up the meeting place & RV orientation.  We provide several meeting options within the San Francisco and Palo Alto areas.  We will also work with you to determine a more suitable location if required.
  • We will share a detailed supply list as well as RV manual.  These documents are intended to help you pack accordingly as our RVs come well equipped with necessities, gear and consumable items.
  • Remaining booking balance & deposit are due & will be automatically charged to your account

RV Pick Up

  • Budget for a 45 minutes for orientation.  We want you to take advantage of all of the RV’s technology and features.  We’d be happy to tag along for a test drive with you if desired.
  • You will get a chance to inspect the vehicle and sign the rental contract (similar to car rental.)
  • We will also firm up the meeting place for vehicle return.

RV Return

  • We will meet at an agreed location and time to pick up the RV.
  • TRAIL MIX RV will inspect the RV and refund your deposit if no damage is found within 48 business hours of the rental return along with email confirmation
