According to trailer Auckland provider Lucca Trailers, renting an RV should be an incredibly fun and gratifying experience. RV travel combines comfort and excitement like no other travel type can. There are a few things you should know and think about ahead of time to make your rental RV a great success – things such as what kind of RV to hire, how to locate a campground and what kind of gas mileage to get.
Renting an RV or campervan is one of the best ways to experience a destination without limiting yourself to a specific area! You can always move elsewhere if you don’t like the RV campground you’re staying at. Plus, when compared to most hotels and resorts, the cost of renting an RV is much lower. You can experience an amazing holiday for less than you might otherwise be able to. You can get a full kitchen complete with a fridge, stove, oven and more, depending on the RV you are renting. RV camping finally puts you more in nature, with much more to do. You can go hiking, kayaking, fishing, sight-seeing and so much more.
Here are some top tips to help you prepare for the ultimate experience when renting an RV.
When you decide to take an RV drive, you must assess which type of RV you are going to rent, where you want to live and what you want to do along the way. Once you have made your choices, you can use that information to create your schedule, plan any specific events, and prepare meals. The key to getting the most out of your rental is to plan and schedule your RV trip from start to finish.
We can’t stress enough on that one. Nothing will put a damper on your holiday plans faster than finding out that during your holiday time frame there are no RVs to rent. There’s more demand than supply when it comes to rental RVs. You may need to book months in advance, or even up to a year. Keep this in mind, especially when planning a trip during summer, a holiday season, or winter school breaks. The simplified messaging and payment systems of RVshare make it easy to book an RV rental quickly. Book as soon as possible to increase your chances when you want to get the RV you want.
When you know where you are going and who is coming with you, you can choose to rent a motorhome of the right size. You’ll need enough sleeping space for everyone, enough room to lounge, the ability to bring along everything you need, and you should have the right kitchen appliances to make meals at the RV park or campground. Just because an RV says it’s sleeping six doesn’t mean it’s sleeping six comfortably, so you should visit the motorhome before you rent out.
Putting down a large deposit over the phone or through the mail can be, and understandably so, nerve-racking. We hear stories of scammers swindling tenants out of deposits and payments by asking them to send money through the mail or give information about credit cards over the phone. Making sure your payment is safe should be high on the agenda.
One of the greatest benefits of renting an RV is being able to go pretty much anywhere you want. Whether it’s a national park, the beach, or staying at a luxury RV resort, make sure that everyone gets to enjoy something along the way. This means searching for activities for any kids, ensuring that you and your partner have time alone or making sure there’s fun for everyone regardless of the destination.
