Renting an RV Gains Popularity
All along Northern California roads and campgrounds, more and more people are renting their RVís instead of buying them. Why is this? The simple reality is that, unless a traveler is planning on using an RV at least 50 days a year, it doesnít make sense for them to buy an RV outright for the following reasons:
Market research suggests that families that take RV vacations save 70% more than those who choose more traditional vacations. Renting can increase the savings even further, allowing you to spend more on other aspects of the trip, or pocket it outright.
One of these areas where renting an RV can provide additional vacations savings is when the renter is planning one big trip during the course of any given year. This is because, although a large cross country tour might necessitate a large RV, buying one would not be cost effective. That fact is clear when you consider the total amount that would be paid on a yearly basis after the monthly payments are tallied.
Maintenance costs are another aspect of RV ownership that can be a source of unexpected expenses that can be avoided by RV rentals. In most cases, the rental fee covers most maintenance costs and renter is not held accountable for any problems that occur during a rental.
Many homeowner groups and associations have restrictions on what, and how long, vehicles can be parked on the properties within the neighborhoods they supervise, especially in higher end areas. This can limit a prospective buyerís options, and can be another compelling reason that tips the scales in favor of RV rentals.
Many potential buyers want to make an educated choice in deciding between purchasing a Class A, Class B, Class C, Travel Trailer, or other type of RV. Each type of RV has Renting the type of RV they are contemplating purchasing allows them to experience living in the unit so that they can see the pros and cons of the unit, to be sure that the RV will fill their needs.
In a few instances a one way trip, or vacation, is the perfect option for travelers considering an RV camper rental. Some people that are who are moving from one place to another, (for example, from the Eastern to the Western United States), decide to take advantage of the fact that they will have to spend money for a rental anyway by making a vacation of the move. This has the advantage of making a fun and comfortable trip out of what could otherwise be everyone cramped into a car in a stereotypical nightmare trip.
