Here Comes Labor Day!

Kick Back and Relax with Easy Camping Rentals

Here comes Labor Day! Labor Day is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country. And we celebrate it by not working! So relax and go camping! We take the labor out of camping, making it as easy as we can for you. We rent top of the line tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, coolers, lanterns, stoves, backpacks, and more. Convenient packages at affordable prices. You can reserve by phone, email us at tsr@theskirenters.com, or just drop by. Why buy when you can rent?

“I’ve rented here for years and it has only gotten better with time. New owners bought it a few years back and they have improved the service and products each year. The owner is often there when I come in and he always helps me find exactly what I need. Best mom and pop experience I have had.”
