Once upon a time, taking an RV road trip was a luxury reserved for the affluent. The only thing adventurous middle-class folk could do was watch in envy as an RV passed by, taking some lucky family on their next adventure.
But things have changed, thanks to some innovative RV rental companies.
Now you too can take your family on a fun and memorable adventure, no matter where you are. If you are in Detroit, RV rental has never been easier, and affordable. In fact, it’s as easy as a few clicks on your computer. But before we get ahead of ourselves…
Renting a camper and driving it to your destination is not at all like renting a car and driving it around. There are few things you need to know before you embark on your epic family (or solo) adventure in your camper rental.
Not every RV rental company is as proficient or efficient as they profess to be. Do your homework before you decide on which company to rent your RV from. If you plan on taking a long road trip, be sure to partner with a company that has offices in multiple locations.
RV’s come in many different sizes that determine their class and functionality. If you’re a beginner, it’s best you decide which class you will be most comfortable with. Once you have decided, go for a few practice runs before the main trip.
Sure, the RV lifestyle is a life of freedom, but freedom does not mean foolishness. Whether you’re a beginner or veteran in the camper rental lifestyle, you still need to plan your trip. To be included in your plan should be the budget, food (cook-in or take-away), route, stop-overs (campgrounds), and sites to visit.
Just because your motorhome rental is a home doesn’t mean you should load it up like your home. Carry only what is necessary for the trip. Overloading your RV can affect the way it handles and can even cause some of your stuff (or the RV rental companies stuff) to break.
Remember that driving an RV is not at all like driving your car. This means you have to be extra careful. A few safety precautions you can take to ensure a safe trip in your camper rental are:
Now that you have the basics covered, it’s time to look for some sweet spots to park your RV rental in Detroit.
