Top 5 Best Motor Home Rentals

Posted in Motor Home Rentals on April 30th, 2007

Freedom… adventure… the thrill of the open road… they’re all part of what makes a vacation such a joy. What better way to spend with your family than cruising down the road in style via a spacious motor home? Before you rush out to make reservations, keep a few things in mind.

• Deposits are non refundable. Most dealers charge anywhere from 10 to 100% of the rental price depending on when the booking was cancelled. Read the terms and the conditions of your RV rental contract including the cancellation policy before you sign a rental contract and pay your deposit. The reservation is non-refundable because the dealer can’t rent the vehicle to anyone else while it is on hold for you, and the dealer may not be able find another renter in due time especially if reservations are cancelled with little or no notice at all.

• Purchase Optional Insurance packages. Extra insurance tends to reduce your security deposit and provides the necessary protection in case of unforeseen events that would occur.

• Your rented RV is your sole responsibility. It is usually the renter’s obligation to ensure that the engine fluids are at the correct levels. And if ever the RV breaks down during the trip, you can be charged for mechanical damages due to negligence.

• Never forget to disclose all additional drivers. If you are not the only one who is going to drive the RV, make sure to tell your dealer or you will be held responsible for any damages caused by unauthorized drivers. Your best option is not to let anyone else drive the vehicle.

• Renting from a supplier will not provide you with a much cheaper option. Most people mistakenly assume that if they rent directly from a supplier company rather than from a booking agent they will be able to get a lower rental rate. However, this is not always true since rental agents usually cost the same or less in an attempt to have competitive rates.

What makes motor homes ideal for travel?

RV is an acronym for recreational vehicle. The synonyms for RV are motor home, camper, and trailer. RVs offer a comfortable method of road travel and transportation since they usually contain all the basic home amenities like kitchens, bedroom, showers, bathrooms, and entertainment centers. RVs are usually parked in specially designated and equipped campgrounds called RV parks where utility hookups are provided. The greatest thing about RVs is that you get to travel without having to worry about your lodging.

What are the top 5 motor home rentals?

The most popularly rented RVs are motorized and can be driven from campsite to campsite. These are your Class A motor homes, Class B camper vans, class C motor homes, and towable RVs which are designed to be simply towed behind a car or truck and typically open up to create a tent at the campground.

Class A motor homes are the most desirable, luxurious, and expensive. Most of these are rented by upper class people with higher budgets. The class C RVs are also similar to Class A in terms of being expensive and being luxurious. They both have large capacities and always have the necessary amenities of convenient and comfortable living.

Class B motor homes are like vans and usually are just for sleeping. They don’t boast any of the extravagances found in Class A and C. The towable RVs are also called folding camping trailers, travel trailers, and fifth-wheel travel trailers. When using them for typical family events, motor homes are usually the rentals of choice.
