We had a great time camping in the pine cone, thank you!
Sam was great, as a first time renter he made my experience as stress free as possible, any questions I had he responded immediately, I would highly recommend getting your next RV experience with Sam.
This is my second time renting through RV share and I am an experienced camper. Our trip renting from Gene and Valerie started out a bit odd. We requested the RV a day early and they agreed for a cash consideration… It was eventually negotiated that I should pick it up by 7 AM to accommodate Gene’s work schedule. I showed up to a motor home that had been rented out to a couple of young men. They had not provided the security deposit nor any insurance. They had scraped down both sides and dented the cargo compartments. There was a tree branch stuck in the side wall of the motor home and the awning braces were badly dented and racked. Both the grey and black water was completely full and the propane was empty. It was low on fuel and Valerie had just finished steam cleaning the carpets for the second time. Gene had hung a TV in the front of the rig… I took it in stride and used the opportunity to drive, fuel and dump the rig with the owner along to insure I could handle his RV. All went well for the first couple days of the trip. Gene was texting me daily to make sure things were OK. When we went to start the generator on the third day and get on the road, it would not run. Our route took us through the central valley of California and it was 106* with no AC. It was a very miserable day… I spent the next day in the Lake Tahoe area with a local friend removing the generator and getting it repaired in Reno and re installing it. My family had fun and I put in a day of work on a rental RV… The generator worked great in the following days through Nevada to the Grand Canyon and into the hills of Arizona. We made our way to Lake Powell and were thankful for the AC. (The unit runs off of propane.) During the night, the water pump kept cycling, I assumed that the check valve was allowing pressure to leak back and it would run for ten seconds every ten minutes or so. What was actually going on, was the water heater had started leaking. We were heating water and pouring it in the desert. The grateful desert drank it up and left no trace. It did burn up all of the propane that the generator was using to make electricity, though. I discovered this bright and early the next morning. We abandon plans for a morning swim and hurried to dump the tanks and get to a propane supplier. The generator ran out of fuel about 10 minutes later while we were dumping fuel and filling water. (This particular Onan must run to cool and must cool to preserve the function of its voltage regulator, so I was in a hurry to get propane.) Just as we prepared to pull out of the dump station, the main airline that de activates the parking brake melted on the side of the generator housing and the brakes were locked on. In my career, I have worked for years as a marine engineer and am currently a Captain of a tug and barge in Alaska. I grew up driving semi-trucks, log trucks and dump trucks. I worked as an auto mechanic in the town of Truckee, California (…these connections allowed me to repair the generator in that town days before). Had I not had the experience to draw upon and an extensive tool kit packed with me, this RV would have been stuck blocking the RV dump site at Wahweap campground. The nearest tow would have to come from Kanab ($195/hr. x 5 hr.) and a mobile repair would be $150 call out and $125/hour door to door from their shop… It took me about 30 minutes to locate and fix the problem. I was covered with dirt and starting a day’s travel… We got to the propane station and re-started the generator, (thanks be to the Lord above…) The temperature was climbing out of the 80’s and it was going to crack 100 again… About two hours later the generator died again. I guess it did not take the sudden outage well after all. We continued our trip sweating all day in the RV while travelling and then insuring we had a 50 amp service each night so we could cool things off enough to sleep. It forced us to stay in RV parks that we would not have chosen had we been able to pursue our original route. We were often in long term parks with dirty, sour, dubious, neighbors, but with a solid plug in and blessed Air Conditioning. We all had to be conditioned to only turn on the water heater when we needed water and plan 15-20 minutes a head so it could heat up. When we were travelling we constantly had to turn the pressure pump on and remember to turn it off, lest the water tank be pumped out through the leaking water heater. One day the TV that was mounted above the driver fell off while we were on the highway. There were some tense moments getting to the shoulder, but no one was hurt. The ice maker connection leaked and put out the refrigerator pilot, (I followed the dripping water and fixed the leak before we lost our food…) We cut our trip short and returned the RV to Gene and Valerie three days early. (We had originally rented for two weeks plus the early pick up.) My family was worn out with all of the quirks and rules I was imposing. They did not like the parks we were staying in. The fun was going out of the trip. I gave Gene a thorough run down of all of the problems and made suggestions on how to improve function. I remounted the TV securely. I showed him why the leveling jacks were binding up. I took care of his RV as if it was my own and returned it cleaner than I got it. Gene said that he had no mechanism for refunding unused days (I did not mention the cash I had given him to pick it up a day early…) He suggested that he only charge me $200 for over mileage costs instead of the $381.60 that was calculated after I filled the rig with propane from empty. I suggested that I get my entire $500 deposit back in light of the failures of the mechanicals of the RV and our early return. (Not to mention the work I personally put in to mechanical repairs…) We failed to agree and I told him to do what he felt was right as he had control of the deposit money through RV Share any way. What he felt was fair was to charge me the full amount of the mileage charge ($381.60) and continue to correspond with me about the RV. I guess Gene felt that he had undercharged me for the rental and was going to grasp all of the money he could legally do from me. He had been screwed by the previous renter and had a torn up RV to fix. The generator was broken again (I did suggest a design improvement that may fix the problem…) But he was not going to consider letting go of any ready monies, even to the extent he had originally proposed as a fair settlement. I was the second renter for this unit and the first who knew how to operate an RV. I would not suggest you rent this unit without a mechanic on call and a promise of weather below 80 degrees. Gene and Valerie just bought this unit and put it on the market. I got to work out a bunch of bugs and pay for the privilege. They are very lucky we did not leave the thing sitting in the RV dump on the southern border of Utah and fly home.
Very nice family. Very helpful with questions and answers. Very clean and well taken care of. Easy to tow and to get in and out of tighter spaces but still have plenty of room inside to be comfortable. Would definitely rent from them again
One of the easiest things I’ve done. Communication with the owner was very pleasant and effective throughout the reservation process and our trip. He was accommodating and set clear expectations. 100% satisfied.
Easy to tow and set up. Well stocked with everything you need on your trip. Russ was very helpful and thorough with explaining how to set up the trailer and very good response with questions with the rental process. Would recommend this trailer to friends!
This is my fourth RV rental and by far the best value and Service. Well organized and thought out.
We had a great time in this RV. The owner is very communicative and the RV is well cared for. We look forward to being repeat renters with this owner.
It was our first vacation with a RV and it was the perfect size for our family of 3. Easy to ride and to park. Jeff and his wife were wonderful with us providing all we need for our trip and giving us a ride to Seattle ferry after drop off.
FANTASTIC, Michael was GREAT to work with. Took extra time to provide all necessary information and tips to operating the trailer. He even took time to assist with minor changes to my towing vehicle necessary to get the ride height perfect. Everything on the trailer worked perfectly and my family had a GREAT time! Highly recommend renting this trailer.
What a great experience we had. Brian is very easy to communicate with and makes sure that you feel comfortable. Thank you for a fantastic 1st rental experience. Look forward to renting your trailer again.
Steve was SUPER helpful and kind. We really enjoyed renting from him, and I highly recommend this trailer. It was clean, well stocked and perfect for our needs. Very comfortable!!!
This is a great RV for those who are looking for all the amenities of a large RV but want the easy driving of a truck. All the controls were very intuitive and the beds were very comfortable. This RV would be my first choice on my next trip. Also, Jae was very accommodating and made the whole renting an RV, pick-up and drop-off experience a breeze.
First time renting an RV so I was not sure what to expect. The online process was so easy.We were so happy with the communication from the RV owner. The owners dropped the RV off at our house walked us through the information ( water, gas,power, etc.).They were so friendly and helpful!!!! Totally great experience! I would highly recommend this service !
We found the RV to be very clean and strong engine. Would not know it was a 20 years old. They have kept it up nicely.
Exceptional owners. Courteous and professional. Responded to all of our texts and emails quickly to help us along our way. Courtney and Glenn went above and beyond to make our weekend trip a success.
It was a great experience! The RV is new and we had no issues with it. Joshua and his wife made sure that we have everything we might need (pillows, bedding, camping stuff, board games etc) and even a busket with all we need to make perfect s’mores in the evening! The pickup was easy and Joshua was very flexible with time too. All his replies were quick.
Great experience, second time I've rented it in 2 months. The experiences with owners are awesome and the amenities are great as well. The trailer is extremely easy to tow, the movie selection is amazing, and having music inside and outside with the speakers was a huge plus!!!!
We had a great trip, Alex was very helpful sorting out last-minute things with us being total newbies. Also very helpful with communication during the trip with questions we had and drop off location that was very convenient. Definitely recommend.
Very friendly and accommodating! The trailer was easy to haul and setup and take down! Our family had a great time with 6 kids and two adults! Very spacious and clean with a lot of storage and a very convenient outdoor kitchen
Fit 2 adults and 4 kids with no problems. Paul was great to work with and answered all of my questions during our trip.
We rented the trailer from Kyle for our annual camping trip. We could not have asked for a better experience! The trailer was super clean, organized, properly stocked with all supplies to clean and cook with. I was so impressed that there was a toaster, Keurig coffee machine, blender, mop, vacuum, paper towels and Windex to name a few! We requested the bedding for the bunks and the master bed, the bedding was clean and the beds were made and ready to go! Our suburban was able to pull the trailer smoothly and we had no issues whatsoever. Kyle gave a thorough walk thru at pickup and was able to answer any questions we had. Our camping trip was a blast and this trailer made things so easy! We used the outdoor kitchen a lot! The kitchen inside has tons of counter space! The trailer was the perfect size for our family of 7! We will rent this trailer again for any of our camping trips!
The renter is not allowed to use the awning on this trailer, which was a major disappointment. Honestly, had I known that, I wouldn't have rented it. The owner does supply a 10x10 pop up tent to use in it's place but it was time consuming to put it up and take it down every day. Overall Brandon was professional and helpful. He is short and to the point in communication about the trailer. The trailer comes with a lot of the essentials like plates, cups, toilet paper, paper towels, etc.
Very easy to communicate with, pick up and drop off were very flexible, and the RV was in perfect condition
This was the perfect haven for me. I could be close to family but still have my own space to write in the early mornings.
It was a pleasure to drive and vacation in for 9 nights. From the mountains to the coast it made for a safe and enjoyable home. I recommended this motorhome to my family and friends.
From the basics to the amenities, it was all there! I took this class C to Eastern Washington with my wife and it was perfect. The RV drove really well. The propane, electrical appliances, and everything else worked as it should. Not only was RV smooth, the owner Kandy was extremely helpful explaining what was necessary with the RV. The RV has many storage locations and in each one was a nice surprise of camping gear, fishing poles, and whatever else may randomly pop up on a summer vacation as you head out. Not only was the RV engine in great shape, the owner thought of the little things that could make the get away. I highly recommend this RV to anyone interested. I will book again.
