Renting a class B RV
It’s finally time to prepare for a vacation and you can’t be more excited. You’ve been anticipating your destination for months and you’ve figured out your dates. Finally, comes the question, what sort of motorhome is best for my group?
If you’re traveling with a small group of people and a class A or C RV is too big, then a class B RV may be the perfect fit for you. Class B motorhomes make a great choice for smaller groups because of their versatility and their relatively low rental prices compared to other units.
In this article, we’re going to expand on those benefits, learn about a few different models, and find out how you can save up to 43% on class B motorhome rental rates in the USA.
Advantages of a Class B RV
Renting a class B RV is a great choice for families who are on a budget. They’re considered one of the least expensive RVs to own, maintain, or rent. The class B RV rental cost is a lot lower than the cost of renting a class A or C. This is advantageous. Instead of using the bulk of your vacation budget on accommodations, use it on entertainment and making memories.
Along with saving on rental rates themselves, renting a class B RV also saves you money on fuel. Class Bs get decent fuel economy. Units can get between 17 and 18 mpg, while some getting up to 22 mpg or more!
Their versatility is another reason why class B rentals make great choices for smaller groups. They’re much easier to drive than other RV classes, even than class C RVs. They’re constructed from vans, so you can imagine that driving them is pretty natural. Class Bs can go basically anywhere a car can go because of their size, yet at the same time, many are strong enough to tow around a small trailer or support a carrying platform. Unlike their bigger cousins, class B RVs can be used like you would a regular car while on vacation.
Different Class B Models
There are many different kinds of class B motorhomes, from the most basic, to luxury, such as Mercedes/Sprinter class B RV rentals. Mercedes sprinters are diesel burning, four wheel drive rigs, built on a van chassis. They are full featured units that come with amenities not always offered in other class B RVs such as convertible sofa beds, fully enclosed showers and toilets, microwave, stove, fridge, furnace, AC unit, external gas hookups, generator, and even a lounge area. On average, smaller ones can seat five and sleep two, while the larger ones can seat seven and sleep four.
Other class B RV models include the Ram Promaster, by Dodge. A smaller, less luxurious version of a Mercedes. They’re less expensive to rent as they aren’t equipped with as many features. They do, however, come with all of the essentials for a quality and comfortable vacation.
The Chevrolet Express is another good option of class B RV units for rent. They come in multiple sizes and are run on regular gas as opposed to diesel. They’re one of the cheaper options, with far fewer amenities than the Sprinter.
Getting the Best Rate on a Rental
Clearly, class B motorhomes make a good choice for travelers who want versatility and are on a budget, yet also want the option to have some luxury. Deciding which kind of unit fits your family best can be tricky, but finding a combination of high-quality rentals, flexibility, and a great price, can be even trickier.
