Default Oshkosh camping gear rental

Hello there Iím sure this is posted elsewhere but looking for advise on camping at Oshkosh. We are flying the RV-12 from California to Oshkosh. Needless to say not a lot of room in the 12 to pack camping gear. Does anyone know of or heard of renting camp gear while at the show? Other options are to ship gear to a nearby hotel. Tent and sleeping bags is all. Thanks for any advice and help

$50 Coleman tents, $10 air mats at Walmart. Give it to the goodwill shop when you're done.

Probably cheaper than shipping 2 ways.

I also know people with spare camping kit in a storage unit close to OSH if there's a real need.

Default Camping

One year there was a firm that was renting A frame campers on the camp ground Sadly, have't seen them sense. That would have bee ideal for these folks. Everything was included with the camper.

As suggested, either send ahead or buy and donate.
