The next time you’re looking for a getaway with your favorite gals then you may want to consider a glamping adventure. If you’re wondering what glamping means, it’s glamorous camping.
This global trend has really caught on and offers those to crave the outdoors an upgrade on rest and recreation. When it comes to glamping, there’s no tent to pitch, no sleeping bag to climb in, and no fire that you have to build yourself. Instead, you find convenience and comfort, which is bringing out even the unlikeliest of campers into the outdoors world.
To help bring a glamping experience unlike any other to the Tri-State, Debbie Immesoete launched Route Fifty Campers.
“Route Fifty Campers will help you add amazing style, comfort, and convenience to your outdoor experience with our beautifully redesigned vintage camper rentals,” says Immesoete.
Immesoete, a freelance advertising art director and graphic designer, is originally from Rochester, New York. She grew up in the country and, from an early age, learned just how nature and art can rejuvenate and inspire.
And it was nature and art, alongside music, and purposeful design that inspired Immesoete to launch Route Fifty Campers. “We’re inspired by anyone who takes the road less traveled,” she says. “We don’t want to be trapped and a giant, beige and brown, big box on wheels with three televisions and home depot cabinets – and we don’t think you do either!”
So with that idea in mind, Immesoete launched Route Fifty Campers, LLC on May 6, 2014. The first booking, which was a delivery to the Whispering Beard Folk Festival, arrived in August.
When you book with Route Fifty Campers you’ll find that each of the campers available to rent comes with a comfortable double bed, a dinette that folds down into a bed, electric or propane stove, refrigerator, kitchen with sink, a closet that can house a portable toilet, tons of storage, dishware, bedding, towels, an awning, outdoor carpet, awning lights, two chairs, and a side table.
“Oh, and the most important – each camper with outfitted with air conditioning,” adds Immesoete.
The campers didn’t originally have air conditioning, but Immesoete says that they definitely do now. There are also unique add-on items available with the campers including a GoSun® Solar Portable Cooker, Lamzac® outdoor couches, portable potties and privacy tents.
“Our campers are perfect for comfortable space at your outdoor wedding reception, graduation or birthday party, extra space at home for visiting guests, photoshoots, and camping at campgrounds or music festivals,” says Immesoete.
When it comes to what makes it stand out among other rental companies, as if the concept weren’t already unique enough, Route Fifty Campers’ most unique aspect is its attention to – and appreciation of- style and art.
“Each camper has funky artwork, art books, and board games,” says Immesoete. “Like other RV rental companies you can tow our trailers, but our delivery, set-up, and teardown service helps to differentiate us. Also, so you might find a little treat in your camper, whether it’s a vase of flowers, donuts, or coffees, we try to make each adventure special.”
Campers prices from Route Fifty Campers range from $70 to $90 a night, with a two night minimum. There is a one-time cleaning/make ready charge of $60 and if you would like the camper delivered, delivery price starts at $80. There is also a 10% discount if a camper is rented for 5 nights or more.
Immesoete says that there’s a lot to look forward to from Route Fifty Campers in the near future. “Around mid-August we will be adding more campers to our fleet,” she says. “We’ll also be offering simple gourmet camp recipes with the ingredients and tools to make your campfire meal.”
They’re also looking into adding furnished safari tents to our growing list of rental options as well, so Immesoete says you’ll definitely want to stay tuned.
