    We are making our first trip to Fort Wilderness and are considering renting a pop-up, that will be set up when we arrive and taken down after our departure. I was wondering if anyone has rented from fortcamperrental before? Thank you for your help!

    Haven't rented from them, but heard a lot of good comments.

    I'll be using them in August when our club goes to FW. So far it has been very easy. I contacted them, they emailed me a contract, I signed it, scanned it, and emailed it back, then used PayPal to put down the deposit.

    It will be such a nice campout, just driving up and having it all set up for us.

    I too have a reservation for spring break. So far I've talked to them on the phone twice, very friendly, quick question responses through email too. I like making payments through PayPal too, it's just odd mailing checks to people I don't know that I'm just trusting to come through. Stay tuned and I'll let you know how it goes this April, so far so good!

    Hmm, may have to look into this since we sold our pop-up years ago. We're going in April -already have site booked as we were going to tent camp.

    We were originally going to tent it but decide to rent instead. We have their pop-up #1 reserved, we will be going in 10 days so we will let everyone know how it goes! Very excited about our first time camping!

    Renting from them this weekend, checking in on Saturday. Great people! You'll have a great trip with them. There is also a video on the website with lots of pictures of pop up #1. That's the one we'll have too! :)

    Thanks for the comments - I was a but nervous about booking 'cause the video on the website is from 2000! :faint: I'm hoping the campers aren't that old!!!!

    For those of you who have gone...2x & charity.....which did you rent? Did you book your site through him or through disney?

    Which loop did you choose?

    Would love to see a trip report on your family's reaction to the pop up experience. We've thought about renting one, many, many times!

    Just getting back on here after vacation. We had a wonderful time and renting from Curt & Jodi (fortcamperrental)was beyond great!

    I haven't uploaded my pics yet, but I can tell you if you go to their website and watch the videos of the pop-ups that is exactly what you get. We rolled into FW about 2:30pm on Saturday afternoon and after checking in and getting our site assignment, met up with Curt & Jodi at our site! They were all set up and just waiting on us. :thumbsup2 We got the Cars site markers, there was a checkered flag tablecloth and Cars bedding for my little guy and a Princess pillow and blanket for my princess.princess:
    Everything was clean and neat and we had everything we needed for the week. They even provided towels for showers along with paper plates, cups and utensils. Service was great, Curt was a call away if we needed him.

    I can't say enough good things about our experience with Fort Camper Rental. We will definitely be return customers! Don't be nevous about reserving/renting from them...it's a no brainier. :flower3:

    Edited to add: we stayed in the 2000 loop, site 2004 to be exact. Loved it! We took our bikes and no problems getting anywhere.
