Rent a Travel Trailer


It took several years of talking to various RV and camper trailer companies before one was finally willing to take the gamble of renting new and nearly-new trailers to bikers at a motorcycle rally. It wasn't just that the financing banks were worried about the trailers' condition after the Rally, but it was also the amount of staffing, time and expense necessary to take hundreds of these trailers to the middle of nowhere (Sturgis, SD) for two weeks and then return them.

There was no doubt that many hard-core riders would appreciate a good night's sleep with their lady in a real bed after a private shower, and a full kitchen and living quarters where they could watch a little tv or listen to their lady's favorite music on the stereo. It has proven to have been well worth the years'-long effort.

2005 was the first year that the Chip actually found a partner willing and able to take the risk and commit the expense money to provide Chipsters the luxury of renting these great trailers. It has been a great success and has provided nothing but comfort to the renting Chipsters. These camper trailers provide all the conveniences like a stove, air conditioning, heater, microwave, great bed, kitchen , bathroom and more. It's no wonder the Chip has enjoyed more and more ladies in attendance these past several years. Yes!

The Chip is pleased to announce that the camper-trailer company (and its bank) is again making it possible for you to enjoy this comfort again in 2014. It's recommended that occupancy be limited to 4 adults. The Buffalo Chip's Convenience Store will be able to sell you things you may want or need and not bring along, but please inquire about having the trailer company also supply the bedding, towels and all dishes, eating and kitchen utensils. They have been so helpful and that may be more convenient for you.

So, feel free to move up to the comfort of these very nice campers, sleep in and be rested and smiling for that late-morning ride. It's your party.This is just another way to help you make the best of it. :)
