RV rental prices have fluctuated slightly over the last decade, but they still remain considerably low in relationship to the value achieved by vacationing in a motorhome rather than conventional travel. The factors that lend to a variance in RV rental prices are:
The Motorhome – At Cruise America we only rent class C motorhomes, as over the years they have proven to be the easiest and most convenient type of RVs for our customers to use. Their size (smaller than the larger bus sized class A style) makes for a smoother, more comfortable ride. They are also much easier to maneuver through traffic and in tight spots. Within the fleet of class C RVs are the Compact, the Standard, the Intermediate and the Large sizes. The Compact comfortably sleeps up to 3, the Standard sleeps up to 5, the Intermediate sleeps up to 6 and Large sleeps up to 7.
The Location – Due to tourism popularity, there are places in the US and Canada where it costs more to rent an RV, and places that are less because of their geographical location.
The Season – Depending on the time of the year that you rent your motorhome, the prices will fluctuate. During the busy travel season (typically June, July and August) the prices will be higher, with the slower times of the year being much lower. However, Cruise America continually offers special deals all year, which include half price mileage specials, 50% off additional nights, free mileage, one way rental specials and their “roll out of Mesa” deals, which involve taking freshly refurbished motorhomes from our refurbishment center in Mesa, Arizona to specific destinations awaiting the vehicle.
According to David Humphreys, president of RVIA (Recreation Vehicle Industry Association)"Affordability is a key reason why RV travel appeals so much to families." He adds, "but there are other key reasons to travel by RV, too. RVs are a comfortable, convenient, stress-free way to travel, enjoy the great outdoors, and spend quality time with family."
