We want to report to you about our rental experience with Elite Rentals of Phoenix, AZ.
The coach, in general, served us well. We had a shower that leaked rather badly but otherwise only a few minor problems.
But near the last of our month’s rental, we encountered a serious situation. The tires on the RV were dangerously bald.
We started to experience a “shimmy” and found a tire dealer. The front left tire was badly “cupped,” which seemed to cause the shimmy. Then we discovered worse: The four rear tires were very—very—bald. We called Elite, and Nathan agreed to change them all out.
That’s fine, but we had been driving on them for three thousand miles. Contrary to Nathan’s assessment, we couldn't possibly have worn those tires bare in that time.
Yes, we should have looked at them at checkout time, but we didn’t, and we blame ourselves for that lack of attention. However, we believe Elite Rentals was negligent in sending us out with such inadequate equipment. In my first report to RVshare, I included a picture that I would like to upload here, but I don't see a way to do that.
We were, we believe, just one rainstorm away from disaster.
