If you are looking to enjoy Joshua Tree National Park, but don't want to camp exposed in the elements or splurge on a pricey, trendy Airbnb, De/Tour Joshua Tree is a perfect option.

Doug was on-site to welcome us and checking in was a piece of cake. We had no trouble arriving in a non 4WD vehicle. The space has all the amenities you might need - running potable water, a toilet, fridge, a shower(!), peace and quiet. There's a grill for those to like to BBQ, but bring a camp stove if you want to do more cooking. There's cell service should you need it.

I slept like a baby inside the trailer. There's a portable heater as well as a small AC unit, though we didn't need either in winter. The trailer is humble, retro and cozy.

It's only 15 minutes door to door to the entrance of the National Park - it really couldn't be more convenient if you're looking for no frills lodging.

Totally recommend Doug’s trailer! I really hope to come back soon!

DE/TOUR was a dream! The location is convenient and the accommodations are perfect, literally a stone's throw away from Joshua Tree National Park. Doug/Jillian were easy going and responsive. The location is relatively private, the 1970's vintage camper is outfitted with just about everything you could want or need with the exception of a stove. I'd also check in with Doug/Jillian about the hot water available in the shower before you go as it was acting up when we stayed. The enclosure that houses the camper offers multiple spaces to enjoy including a few hammocks that were dreamy for cat napping. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back from more desert oasis!

What a great place!...not only is the set up just right - a sunlit vintage trailer with all the amenities you could wish for, a couple of hammocks swinging just under the roof so they're shaded from the sun and/or protected from the rain, a private area surrounded by weathered wooden walls to shield you from any winds (a great place to take a nap or read on the futon in this space). The Weber bbq was clean and ready to use, just right for grilling outdoors surrounded by the smells of the desert and the peaceful sounds of cooing of doves in the bird houses set above the weathered corrugated tin privacy fence cleverly blocking the view to the residence a ways down the hill. The views are sweepingly majestic, there's plenty of bouldering to do directly behind the trailer and the entrance to Joshua Tree is ridiculously close. This is the perfect spot to experience the desert if you're looking for peace, quiet, immersion in nature and a reprieve from life's hustle. Thank you to our generous and tuned-in hosts for providing this sanctuary of repose. Blessings, health and peace. Thank you!

Amazing place! The camper feels secluded enough so everything is quiet and you see all the stars at night and close enough to the road so it is easy to get to the park entrance or run to the store if you need anything.  Doug is a great host who is available if needed.   Would definitely stay again.

This trailer was sweet! A very unique place to stay at after climbing in J Tree. Doug is a really accommodating host and a nice guy all around.

Maybe bring extra blankets or make sure to close the windows, it can get really cold at night being in the desert. The cold kept us up at night, even in April/May. Tis’ the desert after all.

Thanks Doug, your trailer is awesome!!
