Oh, California, the place that holds a little piece of everyone’s dreams, and airstream deliveries/rentals. Roam and Board delivers luxurious airstreams to locations across southern California.

Picturesque shiny, decked out trailer, and views await.

Glamping Hub

This is more of a one stop shop for rentals all over the U.S. Set up like any other vacation rental site, glamping hub has yurts, tents, airstreams, tiny houses , and more available across the country. You can still go on a road trip without a million stops. Make the road trip long or short on the way to a final destination glamping spot.

In addition to these delivered or stationary rentals, there are a few vessels of transportation that are easier to operate than RV’s but still provide that sense of adventure. Cue, campervans!

VW Surfari
