Finding the Best RV Rental
Oh, the open road. There’s nothing quite like the freedom, flexibility, and adventure that comes with RV travel. It’s no wonder why an RV road trip is so often on the bucket lists of wander-lusters. Once thought of as an experience for “older” travelers, RV travel, is starting to appeal to a younger demographic. In fact, 34-54-year-olds are among the fastest growing segment of RV owners.
Travelers love the convenience, comfort, and affordability of RV travel. With RV rentals becoming more convenient and affordable, vacationers can experience the RV lifestyle without having to own an RV or commit to life on the road.
Still, if you’ve never actually traveled by RV, planning your first trip can be nothing short of terrifying. The good news is it's never been easier to find the best RV rentals online, thanks to RVshare!
Best RV Rental Companies
If you were looking to rent an RV 10 or 20 years ago, you might have had to do extensive research, asking family and friends, and scouring through the Yellow Pages (remember those?). After days or maybe even weeks of searching, you may have found a trustworthy source and decided to give them a call. If you were lucky, you got through to a professional to help you with your rental. Or, you might have been among the many would-be customers whose RV dreams got lost in the abyss of a full answering machine.
Luckily, these days, travel research isn’t quite as daunting thanks to the handy Internet. But you may still find yourself at a loss of where to start. While some people may go the Facebook route, others may find themselves searching for the “best RV rental company” on Google, only to find themselves looking through endless pages of RV rental dealers. Overwhelmed by options, many people may reluctantly end up on Craigslist, only to find the closest RV rental was three or four towns away.
What’s an aspiring RVer to do?
With thousands of reputable RV dealers online, the Internet has certainly become the best way to rent an RV. You’ll just have to be a little strategic in your search to find what’s right for you.
Instead of doing a blind Google search, it may be a better idea to do some research on the best RV rental company reviews. This could lead you to some helpful information from fellow travelers who have already gone through the experience of renting an RV for the first time. Yelp, TripAdvisor, and many travel blogs can be a great source to learn from other travelers, including what companies they like best and why, what their RV rental experience was like, and what they wish they knew beforehand. With this wealth of information, you’ll quickly be on your way to finding the best place to rent an RV for your particular travel situation.
If reputation is on your list of must-haves when it comes to your RV rental, RVshare will definitely fit the bill.
The world’s largest RV sharing marketplace, RVshare has been offering motorhome rentals from a network of reputable dealers since the company started. RVshare was also the first RV travel platform to offer a peer-to-peer system, which allows travelers to take advantage of some of the best RV rental deals available.
“What we’re essentially trying to do is create the peer-to-peer market for RV rentals, kind of like Airbnb did for physical spaces and spare rooms,” Joel Clark, director of business development for RVshare, said in an interview with Travel Pulse. “What we found in the RV industry for rentals is there’s far more demand for rentals than there is supply.”
The result: RVshare has created an invaluable resource for travelers, while receiving praise from execs at Google Ventures, Microsoft, and Conde Nast along the way.
How to Find the Best RV Rental Rates
Here on RVshare, it’s easy to find the best RV rental for you and your group, even if you’re on a tight budget. Start by entering your city (or the city where you plan on picking up your RV), along with travel dates into the search box. Within seconds, you’ll be able to look through hundreds of available rentals, many for less than $100 per day. You can narrow down your search by entering things like the type of RV you’re looking for and the number of passengers you’ll be traveling with. If budget is top of mind, you can even sort the search results to show the rentals with the lowest rates first.
This remodeled 14-ft. 1969 Vintage Red Dale, for example, sleeps up to three passengers. Full of vintage detail on the inside, this easy-to-tow camper features a sleeper sofa, bunk bed (big enough for a child), kitchenette, and plenty of storage space -- all for just $85 per day.
Bigger groups might enjoy something more like this 2008 Fleetwood RV Jamboree 31W. Available for $195 per day, this 31-ft. motorhome sleeps up to eight passengers and includes a rear queen bed with nightstand and overhead wardrobe; bathroom; kitchen with double sink and 3-range burner; and dining and living spaces (that convert into added sleeping areas) with a slide-out for extra room.
For travelers looking to enjoy some added luxury on their RV adventure, this 2008 Fleetwood Discovery comes with all the amenities of home, including a full kitchen, bathroom, a big screen TV, and two slide outs for even more living space. Priced at $400 per day, this motorhome is perfect for a family of up to five.
