Ben and Barbara Nixon, owners of Twelve Oaks RV Escapes.

Do you ever just want to get away from the grind of everyday life, but can’t afford a hotel or expensive vacation? Twelve Oaks RV Escapes might be just the place for you.

Owners Ben and Barbara Nixon started their RV rental business back on February 23. For an affordable $89-$109 per night, you can get a camper rental and can even add a towable travel trailer.

“As avid campers, we love escaping to the great outdoors every chance we get. Camping allows us to relax in beautiful settings surrounded by oak trees, wild palmettos, and running streams. Florida offers countless camping opportunities year-round, and camping restores our soul in a way that few other vacations do,” said Barbara Nixon. “We want to share our love of the outdoors and offer convenient, affordable, camper rentals that are cheaper than a hotel room.”

Each camper is outfitted with everything you need, including air conditioning/heat, ample sleeping quarters, dinette, refrigerator, microwave, k-cup coffee pot, gas stovetop, shower, commode, stereo, awning, and even a TV and DVD player. Their smaller campers are designed to be towed behind most pickup trucks and SUVs (check out their towing guidelines on their website).

They also offer delivery options. They will meet you at your reserved campsite and have your camper fully set up and ready to go. Fees include delivery of the camper to your campsite, full setup/ hookup/ teardown, and emptying of the tanks after your trip. A delivery fee is a one-time fee in addition to the daily rental rate.

Some of the recommended camping sites on the website include Fort De Soto Park, Oscar Scherer State Park and Alafia River State Park.

Twelve Oaks RV Escapes is located at 10533 Lithia Pinecrest Rd. in Lithia. Hours are Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.
