For those wanting to plan a final outdoor vacation of the summer season, we've got a no-hassle idea for you. It's called Rent-A-RV.

There’s no hauling or setup involved. The company is the first of its kind in Oklahoma. News on 6 reporter Patrina Adger talks to a family who say it's a new and cheaper way to camp in comfort.

Devon Schaffer and his family traveled from Enid to vacation at the Sequoyah Resort Park in Wagoner County. They didn't know where they would stay and decided to check out "Rent-A-RV", a private company that rents pop-up campers and trailers.

The company delivers and sets up the RV for you at your favorite spot on the lake. All you have to do is move in. "You're just right by the lake and it's a little better than tenting. We have air conditioning and a bathroom so we're in good shape here." The RV sleeps six people. There's a computer, a full kitchen including a stove, oven, microwave and a refrigerator and freezer. Alot of amenities Devon says the local lodge doesn't have. "It was gonna be the same as the lodge the only extra cost was just the camp site on top the trailer here."

The Schaffers are paying about $70 a night for the RV plus $20 a night for the camp space. The daily rate depends on the season and there's a three-day minimum.

When it's time to go home, you just pack up and leave and the folks at Rent-A-RV will pick up the trailer. "It's a real good deal for just a couple nights and we're sure enjoying it."
