Q: I’m not quite sure I am a teardrop camper, yet. Do you have any Vistabules I could rent before I buy one?
A: Unfortunately, we do not have any Vistabules to rent out at this time. We are looking for a way to rent them in the future, so stay tuned! We suggest that you google rentable teardrops in your area. Now, they won’t be Vistabules, but at least you will get a feel for teardrop towing and camping. Otherwise Bert likes to say, “You’re more than welcome to stay in a trailer here in the shop for a night!” 

Q: Why aren’t the electrical outlets in the galley and pass through working?

A: The AC outlets (3 prongs outlets like the ones at home), including the one the air conditioner and/or refrigerator/powered cooler is plugged into in the electrical compartment only have power when you’re connected to shore power with your extension cord.  It’s also always good to make sure you are plugging into a good outlet at your campground and have tested your extension cord.  People have called reporting that their outlets are not working when plugged in and it was simply a non-functional outlet or bad extension cord.  A simple AC outlet tester or any AC appliance can be used to test the outlet at a campsite if you know you’ll need AC power.
