You will be assigned a parking and check out time when you make your reservation. These times are strictly enforced (see late checkout fees), but if you have a special need, it will be honored by availability.
 
3. Are the trailers parked in a Coast Vacation Trailers campground? NO . . . Coast Vacation Trailers does’t own any campgrounds. We park our trailers in the campground or site of your choice, within our service area. Each campground has its own rules and regulations and you are required to follow those rules just like any other camper. Specifically, check in and check out times, reservations and campsite costs.
 
4. How big of a truck do I need to pull one of your trailers? Thats the great part! You don't need a truck to pull one of our trailers. Coast Vacation Trailers delivers the trailer to the site of your choice!
We even level the trailer; show you how all the appliances work and then pickup the trailer after you have enjoyed your camping adventure.
 
5. Can CVT pre-park the trailer in my campsite? YES . . . We can pre-park in any private campground. Make a reservation with them and let us know the site they have assigned you when you call us to reserve your trailer. We'll try to set up ahead of your arrival.
 
6. How do I reserve at the campsite? To make reservations at privately owned campgrounds, call the campground directly, or go through a reservation service.
 
7. Can we have you move the trailer to another site or campground during our stay? Generally, the first site you pick is the site you’re in for the duration of your stay. If you must move, call us as early in the day as possible. If there is enough time in the schedule, we will let you know when to expect us and how much the charge will be. If we’re already in your area the cost will be less than if we make a special trip out. You can estimate the cost based on the delivery fee built into your reservation cost.
 
8. Can we move the trailer ourselves within the park? Please… NO Our insurance doesn't cover anyone other than our drivers moving our trailers. In fact, if you move the trailer you forfeit your $200 damage deposit.

10. Can we rent for a few months to live in? The cost would be prohibitive. We charge by the night.
 
11. Can our friends call you with the site number? Sure. In a big group, one person to direct traffic and pay for the sites is all we need to get the entire group set up.
 
12. What if we are not arriving until midnight? If you plan on a late arrival, you must have a campsite reservation ahead of time. You can only make a reservation in a private campground. All other campgrounds work on a first-come-first-served basis. When you make your site reservation, they will assign you a site number----which you will give to us when you make your trailer reservation. We will park your trailer in that site ahead of your arrival, leaving it open with the keys in it.
 
13. Can we put a tent next to the trailer? Pick out a site that will accommodate your needs. If its’ OK with the campground, it’s OK with us.
 
14. Is there room for our cars/boats? Pick a site that suits your needs---but check with the campground host, as well.
 
15. What if the weather turns bad? Should you decide to check out early, due to poor weather, unused nights are non-refundable.

20. Can I reschedule if I cancel----without penalty? See our Cancellation Policy!
 
21. Is the trailer hooked up to water and electricity? The trailer is self-contained and carries 40 gallons of fresh water. Batteries and propane run your appliances. If you camp in a park with water and power we will gladly hook you up to them. For first-time campers or people with kids, this is the way to go!
 
22. How do we get more water? The driver leaves you with the equipment to refill your water tank. When he delivers the trailer he will show you how to fill the jugs and empty them into the trailer, or provide the necessary hose to hook up to a water spigot close by.
 
23. Does the trailer have heat? All trailers have central heat, which runs on battery power and propane. Please be aware that the heaters require a large draw on the battery so conserving battery power is important.

BringPet
 
25. What if we run out of batteries while we’re there? Your batteries can last 5-6 nights if you are conservative. (Remember your heater is a huge draw). If you suspect your batteries are getting low, call our office as early in the morning as possible. We will make time during the day to stop by. If we are going to be in your area, we will stop by with fresh batteries at no charge to you. If we have to make a special trip, there is a service fee depending on the time/distance from our yard to your campsite and back. It is important to call early, as we don't make service calls after 5pm.
 
26. How come the microwave does’t work? They won’t operate on battery power. The microwave and wall outlets will work if you’re hooked up to an electrical source. Your other appliances work on battery power and propane.
 
27. Is there a coffee pot? Yes, a stovetop percolator. If you're going into a park with electrical hook-ups, you’re welcome to bring a coffee maker or ask us if one is available.
 
28. What do we do if we have problems during our visit? There is a manual in the trailer that will trouble shoot any problem you might have. Call our office. We will either talk you through the problem or arrange a time to stop by. Service calls after normal business hours are subject to a fee.
 
29. Does the trailer have a generator? Yes, available as an option (see options listings). If you are planning on bringing a generator, let us know so that we can leave the correct adaptor to plug the trailer cord into your generator.
