Camping in a Cans ability to provide a rental unit is contingent upon and subject to the requested trailers on time return by the previous renters and to no accidents, incidents or other causes beyond our control.

Should another unit not be available, Camping in a Cans liability will be limited to the refund of all monies paid by you the Renter.

Check in (delivery and setup)
Check in times at most of the island campgrounds is 1:00PM. We will work with you to find a mutual time after 1:00 to deliver,
setup and provide you with a full orientation when we deliver the trailer. We will need your cell phone number so we can keep you posted of any delays and make sure we meet together at the right location at the right time.
Check Out
Check out time for Camping in a Cans trailers is 10:30am as the trailer may be destined for its next rental. It is expected to be vacant with all light fixtures, appliances and propane turned off, the interior cleaned, awnings rolled up and securely latched, all windows and vents closed and locked and ready for the driver picking up the trailer to leave your location at 10:30am at the latest.
Should the trailer not be ready for pick up a $100 late charge will be applied to the deposit on file. Exceptions can be made for the check out time if the trailer is not rented for the next day.
The exception must be agreed upon and noted in the rental contract at the time of pick up.

1 to 14 days prior to check-in; $75 per night cancelled. The rental fee is non-refundable once your booking begins.

Boondocking Trailers = No hookup site needed
All of our units are designed for boondocking (dry camping) and are delivered with enough battery power, propane and water to last a minimum of 4 nights. There is a 12 volt charger in most of our units that can be used to charge your mobile devices so bring your cigarette light charger from your vehicle if you have one.
Saving battery power is your most major concern while camping away from city hook-ups.
Conservative use of all electrical equipment will play heavily on your battery reserve. Use the lights on the lowest light setting suitable and turn off all lights when the trailer is not in use.
The roof vent fans and the furnace fan are particularly drawing of your battery power, in the winter keep your interior temperature as low as you are comfortable with and turn the furnace off during the day if the trailers not actively being used. The Airstream trailers are all very well insulated including the top, sides and floors.
The interiors of all our units are equipped with vintage looking LED lighting which also helps extend your battery life.
We do not offer generators as part of our rentals, it is recommended that for boondocking stays over 4 nights a small RV generator is rented. Please let us know if we can help you find a local rental company that provides generators, we would be happy to recommend someone. Our charge to come and replace a dead battery is $60 for our local service areas in the G.V.A.
There is an additional 1.25 per km delivery charge for locations outside of the Greater Victoria area.

But you can hook up if you want to - Full Hook Up Sites
If you are not sure that your family will be good at water / battery conservation it is recommended for stays over 4 nights that you
book a full hook up site and that will ensure that you will have a vacation without any service issues. Please consider your families needs when making your RV campsite reservation.

The use of awnings is the sole responsibility of the renter. Should you not wish to be responsible for possible damages, please
leave the awnings retracted.
During the orientation we will show you the proper use and operation of the awning if you do choose to use it.
NEVER, ever leave awnings open in the wind!
NEVER operate the awning near your campfire or in proximity of where sparks may harm the fabric!
NEVER leave the awning out while sleeping.
NEVER leave an open awning un-attended in case the winds pick up while you are away.
Do not hang anything on the awning arms other than the provided lights
Do not allow children to hang off the awning arms.

No Smoking Policy
All units are non-smoking. If there is evidence of smoking inside the trailer your damage deposit will not be returned to you.

Sorry, NO Pets allowed inside trailers at any time. We love pets to but we must be considerate of other renters with pet allergies.
If animal hair/smell is detected renter may forfeit rental deposit

We will provide the necessary cleaning supplies as part of your rental.
All dishes, cookware and utensils must be washed and put away.
All counters, table top, sinks, tub/shower, and appliances should be wiped down
The stove top, inside of oven and refrigerator should be wiped out
All garbage/recycling should be taken out of trailer and put in appropriate bins in the campground
Floors should be swept and mopped and any spills on carpets or upholstery wiped up.
Dirty towels, dish clothes and bedding please place in a garbage bag near the entry door for us to launder
There will be a $45 per hour cleaning fee charged if the unit is returned in a dirty state

Booking, Damage, Cleaning Deposit
Your booking, damage, cleaning deposit will be returned to you within 3 days once the unit has been returned and we have
inspected it to ensure it has been cleaned, interior accessories and decor is all intact, and it is without damage and is in
good working order. Should the unit be returned in an unclean condition a fee will be charged for cleanup. The cleanup fee
will be deducted from your deposit, the amount charged is dependant on how much cleaning needs to be done. Do not wash
the exterior of the trailers, particular care is needed when washing the polished aluminum so we will do that.

If neglegent damage does occur your deposit will be used to cover the cost of the repairs or pay any insurance deductibles.
All repair charges will be documented and should damages/repairs exceed the amount of the deposit the Renter who has agreed
to these terms and conditions authorizes additional charges to be applied to his/her credit card or to remit full payment of the
repair costs by cash on request. The Renter agrees to pay all charges in excess and agrees to not dispute these charges.
If repairs are required during your rental period you must call us at 250-884-8641 for pre-authorization before any parts are
purchased or any repairs are made. In the case of an accident a police report must be filed and Camping in a Can must be
notified immediately.

Any damages to the interior or exterior of the rented unit and all related costs are the sole responsibility of the Renter named
in this agreement. This includes damages caused by negligence, abuse, neglect, a third party or acts of nature(wind, rain,
fire, flood etc.), for example not retracting the awning during a wind storm.

Wear and Tear
That said regular wear and tear is to be expected and understandable and you will not be held liable for that, if you notice
anything needing our attention please let us know so we can repair it for the next renters.
