RV Rentals an Alternative to Airline Add-ons

By: On: Thursday April 15 2010

rvtravel0415With the summer vacation season approaching and airlines announcing additional passenger fees, the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) says RV rentals are looking more attractive than ever.

RVs eliminate airline passenger fees for luggage, fuel surcharges, meals and in-flight entertainment, while helping travelers avoid flight delays and airport gridlock.

“Travelers leave all the hassles behind when they go by RV,” says Richard Coon, president of the RVIA. “What they don’t leave behind are all the comforts of home.”

With fully equipped kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms and baths, RV travelers enjoy all the familiar amenities while on the road. They can bring their own sheets, pillows and even cook a gourmet meal onboard.

Affordability is another big advantage of RV rentals. Costs vary depending on the season and size of the unit, and range from $100-$250 per day. RV rentals can sleep as many as six people comfortably.

“In this economy, the affordability of RV vacations is especially attractive whether you rent or own,” says Coon.

Renting an RV is a popular way to try before you buy. There are more than 460 RV rental outlets nationwide and 16,000 public and privately owned campgrounds.

The largest rental companies, Cruise America (www.CruiseAmerica.com) and El Monte RV (www.ElMonteRV.com), have outlets throughout the United States. In addition, many local RV dealers (www.rvra.com) maintain rental fleets.
