Inspired by the all-in-one convenience of a camper, we bring you our exclusive Alaskan version: Car + Tent = Tenter Renter. Rooftop tent and camping gear for two (sleeping pad, sleeping bags, pillows, table, chairs, propane stove, cookware/dishes, and more!) are included with all rentals. Check out our website for more details, www.tenterrenter.com. Our PZEV Outback is far more eco-friendly than traditional RVs and more versatile in their range of accessibility.
We will pick you up at the ANC airport baggage claim or anywhere within 5 miles from the airport (including downtown). We will show you how to set up the tent a short distance from the terminal. Preferred pickup/drop off hours are from 7 am - 10 pm, but if you're coming in later in the day, we recommend a good night's sleep at a hotel before driving Alaska highways!
No pets or smoking in the vehicle and tent. Tent only: no heat source, food, beverages (other than water), or any other item that may be attractive to wildlife (including toothpaste). Additional fees for excessive cleaning may apply. Park a safe distance from campfires. Use caution around wildlife!
How do I set up the tent?
We'll show you at the time of pick up.
Why is the price different than listed on your website?
We found out that our personal vehicle couldn't transfer to our business but still wanted to provide it as a rental because it is so much fun. The price with taxes/insurance is about the same.

David and his wife have thought of everything! The car was impeccably clean and can with everything you could possibly need for a camping adventure. The trip was amazing and we recommend renting from David if you really want the freedom and flexibility to explore Alaska properly.
We spent 3 days camping with David's car, and we loved it. The tent gets lots of comments. It's super convenient to set up, has plenty of room and comes stocked with everything you could need. David was very communicative and flexible and we have nothing bad to say about the experience.
The car does have stickers on the side advertising their business now, but it wasn't a big deal for us.
Great experience. We had quite a few people curious about the tenter renter. It was easy to set up. We ended up not needing a lot of the provided camping equipment since we had brought our gear for camping in Katmai and we were tight on space. But it's a great value to have that as an option. I really appreciate the free airport delivery and pickup.
This setup is amazing! We are from the lower 48 and needed a way to travel around efficiently while being outdoors. This was the PERFECT set up. A Subaru that is good on gas (transportation) and a tent on top (accommodation)! So we didn't have to worry about campsites, hotels, rental car etc. As if that wasn't enough, this set up includes camping chairs, sleeping bags, table, stove, dishes and many many other things that made it complete. The communication with the owners was superb- they gave us good ideas and information about what's around. I would most certainty do this rental with these owners again- very well done. Thank you!!
