Are you ready to join the hundreds of RVers out there exploring our beautiful countryside via their RV? Well, you may be surprised to learn that most RV dealers won’t even let you test drive this big ticket item before you buy.

Renting an RV is one solution that has become commonplace, especially for new RVers that want to learn the ropes before they commit to purchasing. Below are five ways that you can benefit from renting an RV.

Renting an RV: What You Need To Know

1. Test the RV Lifestyle

Renting is an easy way to sample the RV lifestyle and it’s a great way to learn all of the different aspects from driving and setup to mechanics and maintenance. Since RVing is so different from tent camping, it’s best to have a little experience under your belt before embarking on a coast-to-coast journey.

2. Traveling with a Group

Bringing the whole family plus a few more? Renting an RV is a fantastic way to camp with a group. It’s a lot less work than setting up multiple tent campsites, offers creature comforts for all, and can be a more cost-effective than a vacation rental.

3. Get a New Camping Experience

Renting an RV opens up new possibilities for your camping trip. For example, you can try out a new style of camper, such as a fifth wheel or motorhome.

You can also try out unique ways to camp. Select Sun RV Resorts offer on-site vintage RV rentals that are set up and ready for you to stay in. During your next vacation, secure a spot in a renovated Airstream trailer, available at Oceanside RV Resort & Campground, Moab Valley RV Resort & Campground, and more.

4. Save Money

If you’re not a frequent camper, renting an RV can be a great way to save money without sacrificing comfort. For those who only camp 2-3 times per year for short trips, renting is often less expensive than purchasing.

A five-night RV rental typically costs $750-$1000, though rates vary by season and amenities. This is far less than the $50,000 or more that it costs to purchase an RV. If you don’t plan to use your RV often enough to justify the price, renting an RV provides a great cost-saving alternative.

Now that you know the benefits of renting an RV, it’s time to decide where your next trip will be. Will you venture north to the great outdoors of Michigan, or will you head for a southern vacation in sunny Florida? With great RV resorts around the U.S. and Ontario, Canada, we have an option to every need!
