    Anyone here ever rent an RV?

    I'm more of a tent camper myself but my family and I are planning a trip late in September to maybe catch some of the fall colors (if we're not too early).
    My wife and daughters might make it in a tent but the rest of my family is taking their RV and we don't all fit. I'm thinking of renting one.
    Has anyone here ever done that and if so, can you give me some estimates and maybe some sites to check out? I've seen some but I'm wondering if you guys have anything better.

    Thanks!

    I rented RV a year ago, the movie with Robin Williams in it.

    To continue the "helpfulness" R.V. was filmed about 45 min from my house in Kananaskis country.

    My parents own their RV so I don't have any rental information. I would suggest checking out the RV dealers in your area. They will let you go inside the various RVs and you can get a feel for what you like. Then try looking up information on the internet.

    Once you have been camping in an RV, you will never want to go camping in a tent again.

    My Mom and Step Dad own one too and its just not me. I love my tent!
    I've looked around in regards to price and its not as expensive as I thought but I still need to think about it.

    Rent? My parents OWNED a 30 foot motorhome when I was growing up. We took that thing everywhere. Mom & I hated it but dad loved it so we sucked it up. It was more fun in high school when my best friend came along on some trips. We had some wild adventures.

    Re: Anyone here ever rent an RV?

    We own one as well. It's a blast!!

    Renting is a good way to go for a once a year or so trip.

    El Monte RV is a rental place, though I would not recommend them. Check the yellow pages, there are quite a few places that rent them.

    Usually a daily fee and a mileage fee.

    Shop around!

    Oh...And get the insurance! Lots of (expensive) things to break on them...

    Re: Anyone here ever rent an RV?

    My parents owned one, too. We went on few trips with
    them. The most notable was a drive from our home in
    Minnesota, down to Colorado, thru New Mexico (with
    an emergency stop in Albuquerque, because the fuel
    pump gave out ~ Albuquerque must have some sort
    of ancient curse on it, our family ALWAYS has some sort
    of vehicle problems while driving thru Albuquerque!)

    Thru Arizona, to San Diego, LA, through Yosemite,
    (yeah, my dad had a great time driving that monster
    vehicle thru those tiny narrow roads around Yosemite)
    to Las Vegas, Utah, Colorado, and back up to Minnesota.
    On a long trip like that, those quarters get a little tight
    for 4 people. Thanfully, over the 2 weeks of our vacation,
    we did stop at a real hotel/motel, every once in a while ~
    just to keep our sanity.

    Of course things happened along the way that added to
    the "fun". There was a bed directly above the driver and
    passenger seat. During the drive, the bed had a couple of
    latches, to keep it in place, then at night, you could unlatch
    it, and pull it down for the bed. BUT, about 2/3'rds of the
    way through our trip, both latches broke. Everytime we
    drove over a large bump, while driving, the bed would bounce
    up and down. so either my mom or I would hold up the bed
    to keep it from hitting dad the driver, on his head. And that
    is just ONE of the many "fun" experiences of traveling in a
    motorhome.
