James was great to rent from! He answered all of my questions ahead of the trip and was thorough in going over the RV. The RV was also perfect for my trip and the pictures were true to the RV. I will definitely rent from him again in the future.
PLZ READ WHOLE THING. REVIEW MAINLY ABOUT RVSHARE Co...........Owner 4 stars, RVSHARE 0 stars I'd like to start by saying William (rv owner) was the saving grace to my trip. And I have NOTHING good to say about RVshare. I had orginally booked an RV 5 months prior to my vacation. This was to be my honeymoon trip. We were driving from NYC to yellowstone. 6 days bfore my trip our RV got canceled. The only thing RVshare was able to do for me was find a list of "similar" rvs at about the same price. From the list William was the only owner willing to rent his RV on such short notice. So it was our only choice, since we had thousands of dollars already spent on other destinations and activities we planned on doing, and it was to short of a notice to get refunded for them. The RV itself was very nice and clean and very big. It as much bigger then the one I had booked originally, and I had to drive 3 hours away in the opposite direction of where I was heading. RVshare promised to cut the cost of the new RV so I thought everything would work out. Well i was wrong. All they offered was a 50dollar discount. When i explained that i was basically forced into renting this paticular RV. The original RV i wanted was much smaller and the owner lived very close to me. I explained this new RV is costing me so much more money in gas that i had budgeted for, and also the extra miles its putting not only on the rv and my trip but also to my own personal car. The response i got was that i can file a claim and dispute the charges. But this was just the begining. The check oil light was on from the first day we got the RV. when i called , the owner told me that its fine, and that he has to take it in for service once im back. I also asked him about the water levels. It was reading that black and grey water was full. He said dont pay attention to that, its empty and he had just dumped it prior to me picking it up. I had never rented an RV, i thought great its no big deal. But it was a big deal. My wife and I were going to be camping where you could not dump any kind of water. so right before we went there we stopped to empty the tank. As soon as i pull the release for the black water, i get covered in it. The pipe was not propely secured and black water started pouring out all over me and the street. I had to clean it up and fix it so i could continue to empty the tank. After that was done we get to our campsite. On the second day there, after 2 showers the water started coming up from the shower. The tank was full. Even though now the water level reader said it was half empty. So for 5 days we had no shower. Might i add when RVshare was finding new rvs for me to rent, the only thing i required was that the RV had a shower and toilet. Half my trip my wife and I had no shower, and of course it was where we wanted/neeeded it the most. I also explained to RVshare that there was no working radio in the RV. If i had known that would have been my other requirement. I am 30 years old and music is a very big part of my life. To have to drive across country with no radio, on your honeymoon when this was something you dreamed of happening, pretty much ruined the whole driving experience of this trip. But when i mentioned this to RVshare they just ignored me. But THE BIGGEST, AND WORST PART ABOUT THIS TRIP was when the RV broke down on our way home. I took 3 weeks off of work but our trip was 2 weeks. During the first week my boss had called me and asked me to come back a few days earlier. I promised him it would be no problem, being that we had no shower, and that we were spending so much more in gas, it was smarter to just cut the trip down and start heading home. We get to Iowa and the power steering failed. I luckily was right by a gas station. I pulled in and now the car started to over heat. This was around 5pm so i couldn't call RVshare since they take their phones off. SO i first called William to tell him, and then i called the 24/7 roadside. What they told me was 1 they had to locate a truck big enough to tow us, 2. that they cant pick us up until I find a location within 50miles to be towed to, and 3. that I was the one who had to find the mechanic and to call back in the morning, since all the shops were closed at the time, when i do. The fact that I had to try to find a mechanic shop to work on an RV in a city im not from blew my mind. But what was i going to do. So roadside left us on the side of a road until the morning. When i started to call to look for shops, every shop said they were backed up for weeks. Only one place told me to bring it in but said they couldnt tell me when they would get to it. I called roadside back at 830am and they told me they will call me when someone was on the way. RVshare then called me because william told them what was happening. They apologized for my experience and said they never heard of roadside not picking up a customer and also telling that customer to find their own mechanic. But apologizes were not helping. I explained that I had to get back to my job and that every shop i called said they were backed up for weeks. They told me if they cant fix it that they would help me find a replacement RV to rent. and if i had to stay in a hotel that I need to call William and see if he would pay for this hotel. I also told them at this point its 12pm and ive been waiting to get picked up since last night. They called roadside and i was told someone wil be there within 30m. Well i did not get picked up until 4pm. We got to the mechanic which was a Chevy dealership and long story short they said it would at least be a few days before they get to it. When i go back to the RV to call RVshare, the tow truck was gone. He left the RV in the parking lot and just left. Now i was stranded in a chevy dealership with an RV that doesn't move. I tried calling RVshare but it was after 5 and their phones were off and no emergency number, even though i was communicating with them all day. They just left me stranded for another day/night. If it wasn't for William who was able to find a mobile mechanic the following day, my wife and I would probably still be stranded. Just to add some icing on the cake, after we get the RV back we are driving home and all of a sudden i almost crash into a wall because the canopy< that we hadn't used once, opened up on the highway after 10 days of being closed. And since RVshare stranded me for 2 days I dont get back when i promised my boss i would and i end up losing my job. So although William was wonderful and i definitely recommend renting his RV, just NOT with RVSHARE. I thought i would have some tye of protection which was why i used RVshare, if something were to happen with the RV. But they did less then nothing. In fact if i had just rented the RV with WIlliam and not RVshare i probably wuld still have my job. We wasted 2 days waiting and hoping rvshare or roadside would help but they did nothing. William was the one who founnd the mechanic. So if you think about it why did i rent through RVshare? so they can charge me 500 dollars in insurance and fees for roadside that doesn't help when you need it. I could have used my own AAA and had a better experience. Even after explaining all of this to them i just get ignored. So in the end, WIlliam was great, the RV had a few hiccups but he was wonderful. RVshare did nothing but ruin my honeymoon , was indifferent to my situation with work and the urgency to get home , and continues to ignore my complaints.
Great RV for a guys weekend. Wayne was extremely generous with his time, and worked within our tight schedule. The vehicle was as advertised and more. Wayne was thorough with his overview before we hit the road, and extremely responsive on the days leading up to the trip. The RV rode great, and the rear and side view cameras made driving through town very simple. The outdoor stereo system allowed us to listen to music and college football all weekend. Already looking forward to our next trip!
Jake is extremely friendly and responsive, he embraces the small camper/trailer world and is knowledgable. He not only rents units, but he and he biz partner make these trailers, their craftsmanship and pride is obvious and they truly have a skill. Everything was great and overall a great experience. The only suggestion I have for Jake is to supply a proper mattress with the rental <--it might help future sales if the unit was set up with one and provide the renter a more positive experience.
RV was perfect. New, clean and everything worked great. Joe was great at explaining everything and the video on set up and break down was perfect.
RV ran great, no problems, well maintained. Andrew was very responsive and easy to communicate with and respond to calls.
Richard was greet to deal with, RV was easy to drive and all equipment functioned wel. I had a few questions along the way and he was always there to answer them.
Ken was awesome to deal with. His motor home was very accommodating for our family. We had a great experience. My family would totally recommend renting from Ken. Thanks again Ken.
What a great experience! My husband and I were meeting extended family for a camping vacation. At check-in we found that Hal had the camper already set up. He walked us through everything we needed to know. The unit was very clean and there was more than enough room for six of us. The teenage grandchildren used the bunk room on one end and we were in the king size bed on the other end - so plenty of quiet and privacy. Loads of closet space for stowing clothes and gear. We mostly used the outside camp stove but there was a stove/oven inside as well. Nice stereo with indoor and outdoor speakers. Fridge and freezer worked well, and the air conditioning was great, especially since the temp was in the 90s. I especially loved having a bathroom with a shower. Pictures are accurate - very nice looking inside. Communication with the owners was a breeze and we would love to rent the camper again!
Whole rental process worked out great!! The owners were super helpful and the RV was in really great shape. This was our first RV rental experience so we did not really know what to expect. The owners were great to work with and were very helpful in answering questions that came up. RV was really nice and everything in it worked great. It was really easier to drive than I imagined and we had a really nice weekend. I highly recommend this RV and these owners and if the need arises we will definitely rent from them again in the future.
Steve and Lara. Very sweet and honest individuals. Very thorough about their RV, very informative and all around a great experience with them both. The RV was exactly what was advertised, we shook hands in the beginning and we shook hands in the end. Altogether as mentioned a great, nice professional experience. I would highly recommend renting this RV.. and on top of all that... it’s nearly new.. Garrett Roche
This was our first time using RVShare. The unit was clean and as represented. William made it easy to pick up and drop off. Very smooth process, would rent it again.
We rented this RV for a Labor Day camping trip to Gettysburg with 3 grandsons. The vehicle was very clean and well maintained and equipped and the owner made the pick up and return process very easy. No problems whatsoever - and this was our first camping experience!
Matt was very responsive and flexible. The trailer was in good shape and had plenty of room for our family of 4. We would definitely rent from him again.
Our first time in an RV and they could not have been more helpful and available. Rig is pretty new and in good shape. Did everything we wanted it to and more.
This was a great RV to rent for our long weekend trip. Check in was informative and easy, David was a great resource and very flexible. The RV had everything we needed and was comfortable for 5 people. We had a minor issue where the rear view mirror got damaged and David handled it in a very professional manner. 5 star all the way..
Very workable guy to rent from and easy. Quick pickup and drop off with great instructions
We had a great time. Brian was so helpful making sure all was fine with camper. We would definitely use the RV again.
The RV is very accurately described and Donna was a pleasure to work with. I can’t wait until our next rental. We’ll be in touch next year, Donna!
Ol’ Becky is not a looker, but she is a work horse. This RV will get you where you need to get and back. AC works. Mike is a straight up guy. I would rent from him again.
Scott is great to work with. Very responsive and easy to do business with. Will rent again from him.
Where to even begin. This was my first RV trip and I would absolutely do it again, especially with Von’s RV. I’ll start with why it was so good and then move to what I learned so that new RV travelers might not have to learn on the fly like I did. Von’s 2007 Daybreak was huge, easy to drive, and comfortable. We drove, cooked, showered, slept, watched movies (we brought our own blueray player with an AVI adapter), and more. Everything we wanted was there for a great trip. If the weather held up and if we had more time we would have even spent some time outside under the awning (he has a metal fire pit and camp chairs in a compartment and there are outlets on the outside of the unit even). Now working from back to front. The master bedroom has a queen bed, the bed is comfortable and not much light gets back there if you did want to sleep in a bit (but lights of course if you need to see). There are then two twin bunks in the middle bump out. He has some extra foam on the beds so they were pretty soft as well. There is an AC unit in the back that blew cold. We cranked it up the first night too high and woke up frozen, night two we dialed it back and it was perfect. Right across from the bunks is the bathroom. The bathroom is small, but has a toilet, sink, and shower. The water came in hot when needed and all fixtures functioned. Next forward is the dining area and kitchen. We used the stove, fridge, freezer, and sink. The stove worked well (electric ignition, so no matches needed) it cooked our food evenly and some pans were included in the drawers. That is the only gripe from the kitchen, the drawers. When driving they open and close on occasion. Von said that was his next project, so that might be solved by the time the next person rents the unit. The kitchen, dining, living room area is the front bump out and it was very spacious. A second AC unit, so again, very comfortable). The couch, table bench, and chair were fine. The two captain’s chairs that spun 360 up front were really comfortable. We drove for hours and I felt great the entire time. The table and couch turn into beds. We did not need the table bed, so no comment, but the pull out couch was as good as any other couch. Not as good as a real bed, but I spelt fine. There were shades on all the windows including the huge windshield up front. They blocked all the direct light, but there was a glow through that made it hard to sleep past 8. So if you want to get up early to hike, great. If you want to stay up until 2 or 3 am, not as great (but really, that was my fault for having too much fun and staying up. The RV is 35 feet overall, so it is not small, but there is a backup camera as well as your passengers can help spot you or direct as needed. It makes tighter turns than I expected, so we never had issues getting into or out of spots. Lastly, Von is the owner and he is another great aspect of this RV. He wants to make the trip as comfortable as possible. He was a pleasure to work with, he was responsive, and just an overall good guy; he’ll make sure you have the best experience possible, very accommodating. Oh, last note, bring pillows, bedding, and food/drinks; that’s really it. Now, outside of this RV, as a renter there are some things to know. Get familiar with the RV before you go. Have the owner show you before you leave and read any literature possible (Von helped here and was all over this, but I did not even know what questions to ask). Many things are intuitive, but finding switches, valves, and compartments is tough, especially when you do not know what you are looking for and it’s dark. Remember if you leave the USA you might or might not have phone reception depending on your plan. We suffered a flat tire to no fault of the owner, the tire blew. It was not bald, just something that happens. When we found a phone to call the roadside assistance included in the rental they really did not do anything. They gave us two options, either we can be towed to a shop within 50 miles that we provide the address for (it was 11PM, in Canada, and not many shops work on 35 foot RVs) or they can mount a spare for us (assuming you have one). So if you do not know the name or address of a shop or don’t have a spare/can’t find it you’re SOL. Roadside assistance would only mount the tire, they would not bring one, seemed unhelpful, especially given our situation. Roadside assistance has a number, but RVShare only has a website, no phone numbers anywhere. This makes it hard to get in touch with them to ask questions. Since we needed a tire we wanted to ask are we allowed to authorize work or how does reimbursement work? Luckily we got a hold of Von shortly after and he said just take care of it and he’ll reimburse everything. This again goes back to him trying to make the experience a great one. There was no hesitation or negotiation, he did not ask us to price shop, it was spend whatever you need to finish your trip and he’ll cover it. We got a company to bring a tire out and install it, they were there within the hour and after another hour of labor (dually in the back, so the flat was the right rear inside tire) we were good to go (thank you to Popular Tire in Mississauga, Ontario). In closing, even with a hiccup or two, we had a great trip and would absolutely do it again. I would try to rent from Von in the future (next summer?) for a longer trip. Von was great, his RV was great, and I could not recommend both more. Just make sure you do your research to understand the vehicle and any other situations you might encounter. That goes for any RV, this beautiful beast or any other you may choose to rent.
Spacious, powerful. Clean, and in good condition. David was thorough on the walk-through and easy to speak-with regarding the rig.
James was amazing to rent from. This was out first experience renting an RV and we could not have asked for a better experience. James walked us through the process and was available whenever we needed him. He is a wonderful man and the RV is amazing. We enjoyed this vacation immensely and it was nice knowing we could call him when needed and was so nice through out the process..plus the RV was easy to use. It also came with many of the needed Staples. Loved it.
