RV Rental Tips for First-Time Renters

RV rentals are at an all-time high as millennials and retirees alike discover the advantages of recreational vehicle travel. This type of camping Columbia SC offers you the comforts of home and the freedom to travel to multiple destinations without having to pack and unpack. Here is a helpful guide if you are renting an RV for the first time.

Choose the Right Size

Several factors determine what type of RV is best for you to rent, including your travel budget, number of travelers and your destination. Families need a larger rig with multiple sleeping areas and slide outs. A couple will be fine in a smaller model. If you’re traveling to one location only, the fuel economy of your RV won’t be an issue. However, if your trip involves several destinations, look for a smaller rig that gets better gas mileage.

Select a Provider

Traditional rental franchises are available and work just like car rentals. They offer late-model RVs that are serviced regularly. A less expensive option is a peer-to-peer rental where you rent from an owner, but it may be an older model, and you have no guarantee that it gets regular maintenance. Whichever rental route you take, get detailed instructions on how to operate all the features of the RV, as well as how to use a dump station.

Make Campground Reservations

Plan your route ahead of time and reserve your campground in advance. The most popular campgrounds fill up fast, especially in the summer months and winter resort season. For your first few trips, it’s a good idea to stay in a fully loaded RV park with hookups, dump stations and on-site staff.

Once you have your RV rented and your camping space reserved, enjoy the thrill of the open road with all the comforts of home.
