Super friendly owners, easy pickup and return. This was our first experience with RVshare and this was so smooth we have decided to put off buying our own camper and continue to use this one
So much FUN - 6 people in an RV in sub-zero weather for an extended vacation could have been a disaster, but with 505 Rentals it was a breeze. We had a tremendously great adventure during Christmas 2018. Due to weather and icy roads, our trip could have been very difficult, but with great information, service, quality equipment and help from Ken it was a success. We had some icy roads, which changed our plans, but we were able to safely and comfortably pull the RV through the mountains because it was set up properly and well maintained. Ken was available for questions and even gave me some advice and offered help for winter driving. We stayed in the mountains in NM during a winter storm. Despite below freezing temps for over a week, the RV was comfortable, we maintained services, and had a great time. 2 adults and 4 kids were comfy and happy - anyone with a big family knows that's hard to accomplish. We opted for the all inclusive package with all linens, plates, etc. included. I HIGHLY recommend that option. It made our trip so much easier, and Ken and the team at 505 rentals had thought of everything. In hindsight, I would have missed several needed items! The 505 team was professional, honest, and EASY to work with. We will rent from them again if possible this summer and for sure next winter. If you are reading this and considering renting an RV. DO IT. Making these memories with your family is priceless and you will not regret it.
Working with Ken was a great experience. Due to some unfortunate circumstances (mostly weather and frigid temps for NM) some parts of the reservation had to change, but we were able to work through it and overcome so I and a buddy could go hunting. I really appreciate working with someone that understands your needs and is willing to work with you to accomplish a common goal. Ken is great to work with and I highly recommend renting from him!
Everything was as described. Easy pickup and drop off. Very responsive, good communication.
Loved this RV - very clean and well-kept, Ken goes above and beyond to make this experience wonderful for you! Would highly recommend renting from them!!!
RV was great. Engaged and responsive owner. Couldn't be happier with the experience. I can't say enough about how important it is to have an owner who is available, responsive and focused on making your experience a positive one.
Very easy transaction. Rick explained everything, from hitching the trailer to how the holding tanks work. Would definitely rent again.
We will be back to rent again as soon as we can. Renting from ‘Simple Life, Big Adventures’ was the best experience we could hope for.
Ken was very easy to communicate with and super accommodating! The camper was spotless and stocked with lots of little extras that haven't been in ones we've rented before. I will definitely rent from him again!
The trailer was basically brand new. From the start they made it a very easy and enjoyable expieence. This was my first time renting and I’m really glad it was through them. I would rent from them again in a heartbeat!
This is a super clean and well-functioning unit. Everything worked great. The experience with the owners was excellent. They were on-time and the unit was ready to go when we arrived. All parts of the rental were exactly as represented by the owners.
Christopher responds quickly and was very easy to work with. The 5th wheel had plenty of space and everything we needed.
This was a great trailer for our family of six! We have a toddler that still sleeps in a crib at home, and his pack n play fit well in the trailer. Overall it was a great experience!
We enjoyed renting this A-frame trailer. It was easy to tow and the setup is incredibly fast. Christian was available and responsive whenever we had questions -- he is one standup guy.
Sheriece was a pleasure to work with. She takes pride in her RV and it is well kept. The kitchen is nicely equipped. The walk-through was thorough and she took care to help us operate everything effectively. I recommend this rental for your next adventure!
Ken was fantastic to work with and the RV was perfect. It was clean, everything in working order, and it had all the things you needed included, even a welcome mat! :-)
All good with RV owner, Great RV rental, great experience with owner. Only problem was with RV Share. RV Share has a very difficult process with lots of glitches and no personal interaction until things really start to unravel. In my situation I completed the process and paid the full amount and then three days before my trip RV Share says my insurance was not taken care of. A computer glitch. In fact, the insurance had been paid and I had multiple emails confirming that. Owner gets the same email from RV share stating my insurance was not in place and Owner cancels my rental. I had for weeks been trying to get a call from RV Share. Finally they give me a phone number and I get to talk to a real person. Finally got it all resolved but what a beating.
This was a great camping experience. Ken dropped off, setup, and picked up. He provided a great walk through and explained everything. We were first time campers so this was a great help. Communication was great and if we needed anything Ken was available to explain or help out. Thanks Ken for making this a great experience.
Gerritt's RV is just lovely. We stayed in his RV during the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and could not have been more pleased! From the welcoming gifts of water and other assorted drinks to his thoughtful touches of chairs and games, Gerritt made our stay a real treat. The generator was a nice touch - it did get cold at night - and the bunk beds were very comfortable. It is exactly as listed - a small RV, however, it was everything we needed during our stay - and we hope to return someday!
Post-rental bad experience. I would not be comfortable renting this RV again. Simply be cause there was an obvious lack of transparency from the owner and it does not feel right to us. Althought Joseph was nice to us while picking us up, droping us at the hotel/airport, he was not totally honest with us concerning the damage cost he would hold back from our security deposit. While giving back the keys, we specifically asked to know about the extra cost we would have to cover, be cause we simply don't want to have to deal with bad surprises. Joseph said the repair would be cheap and that we would not have to cover the full cost (as we were not 100% responsible for the damage). Joseph said he would keep us in touch, which he did not. Even not even responding to our messages until this day. We are simple, honest people and we feel like the owner took advantage of our money held as a security deposit. As other little things were not in total shape in the RV, If I were you I'd be scared to rent it and then held responsible for damages you did not very commit.
We had a wonderful experience renting a RV from Ken, it was everything we needed and made our trip to the Balloon Fiesta perfect. Thanks Ken
Very nice experience. We got a lot of value out of this rental and will use the service again.
Great RV experience! Everything listed is exact. My family had a great time. My sons have mobility disabilities and we have a ems stair wheelchair that we use for them to transfer up stairs. It fit through the RV door and the bedroom area was manageable since it has a slide out. The roomy bedroom was perfect for their mobility. The 4 TV's was more than enough for my sons to watch a movie while getting ready for bed. The RV is self contained so it was perfect for dry camping. We stayed warm through the chilly night. The kitchen is well stocked as well as the necessary items needed for the RV. The 3 days of camping we never ran out of water or propane. It was simple to operate, as explained by Ken, a very great person and quite friendly. Great to work with. The RV was surprisingly easy to drive also. I highly recommend this rental!
The entire experience was fabulous except for one thing. The battery wouldn't hold a charge and thus we had no lights or water pump. If you are hooked up to electric I'm sure everything would work. If they fix this problem I'm sure all will be fine. We had lanterns and would turn on the car for the water pump. Not convenient but considering it rained every day we were camping (yes, in NM) we were very glad for the spacious camper. We had three adults, a child and a dog in here and it was fabulous.
The size was great and owners were very friendly and easy to work with! Had a great experience and will look to rent from them again.
Great first time experience on RVshare. Richard was very easy to work with. Would rent again.
As firs time to RV's, We were very satisfied with Sean. His pickup/drop-off times were very accommodating. He was very thorough with walk thru/operating procedures of the camper. I left feeling very comfortable about the whole process.
Both the RV and Richard were great! Excellent communication, spotless, comfortable, and well-equipped RV. He was on time and thorough with the overview but got us on the road quickly. We rented it for a guys trip and flew into El Paso visiting Carlsbad Caverns, City of Rocks, and Elephant Butte Lake on our long weekend trip. For an additional fee, Richard agreed to pick us up from the airport and take us back upon our return. Everything went so smoothly and the RV was even better than expected. Richard had the water tank full and a few bottled waters in the fridge (much larger than typical RV refrigerators. I am a big and tall guy (6'2" 300 lbs) but both the shower and toilet were comfortable for me. I hope Richard is still doing this in a few years when I return with my family for a road trip across the Southwest. I would HIGHLY recommend Richard and his RV. Great experience overall!
