You have undoubtedly spent a lot of time and effort planning your event and renting all the necessary equipment. For outdoor events, often times, you have rented a tent so your guests are comfortably out of the sun or the rain; but have you considered a tent to cover your bathroom trailer? There are two ways that we have seen tents set up for bathroom trailers. The first option is having the tent completely cover the trailer. This is nice because it offers more coverage. However, there are logistics that need to be considered. First, most restroom trailers venting systems are on the top of the trailers. In order for the tent to provide the proper space for the vent, you need at least a few feet of clearance from the height of the trailer. The other consideration is the timing and placement of the restroom trailer. In most cases, the trailer needs to be delivered and set up prior to the tent be erected.
If you are working with a tent rental company, it’s important to make them aware that you want the tent built around the trailer so they can plan accordingly with the restroom trailer company and your other vendors. Blue Ribbon Restrooms has worked closely with many tent rental companies that have the expertise to provide the service you would require. Over the years, we have had great success with and highly recommend Sugar Plum Tents and Select Event Group for all your tent rental needs in the DC Metro area.
Another option to provide shelter for those either waiting in line for the restroom or walking to the restroom trailer is having marquee type tents that are placed out from the doors. Marquee tents work well since they don’t cover the roof of the trailer, therefore, ventilation is not inhibited. Most importantly, discuss your tenting ideas with your bathroom trailer expert so they can provide you the guidance and expertise you deserve.
