Renting an RV is a great option for many families who are interested in the idea of RVing, but who aren’t sure what type best suits their needs, or for those who travel by RV only a couple of times a year and therefore don’t wish for the responsibility of payments, insurance, or maintenance of an RV. Renting is also a great option for American and Canadian RVers who’d like to travel in Europe. And now is a great time for renting an RV as many RV dealerships are beginning to rent their unsold inventory at very reasonable rates.
- When you rent an RV, make sure you fully understand how everything works. (Before our customers leave with their RVs, we do a walk around and walk through.) You should know how to use the stove, toilet, and shower, what to do when the pilot light on the water heater goes out, how to read the gauges, and how to dump. – Paul LeClair, Bates Motor Home Rentals of Rapid City, Black Hawk, SD
- In this area (where there are 2,000 campsites nearby), a lot of people don’t want to own a travel trailer but prefer to rent one. That way, they don’t have to worry about storage or maintenance. I don’t let customers leave until I go over the travel trailer front to rear—awning, microwave, stereo, VCR, every inch—even if they are in a hurry. – Carl Rochelle, Diamond Lakes RV Rentals and Sales Co., Hot Springs, AR
