Not all people are interested in buying their own RV, but still want to go on long-term camping trips. Finding campers for rent monthly will prove to be worth your while. You can get better rates and have the luxury of not paying the monthly payments to own the RV. You rent it and return it. Done!
Let’s discuss some of the areas you should pay attention to when renting a camper for a full month or more.
We all want to know the cost before even exploring further so let’s talk about this issue first and foremost.
If you have read any of our other articles, you’ll know that I talk a lot about my family and how we fit into the RV lifestyle. Renting an RV would be no different. I would need to measure cost for renting whether it was for a weekend or a month and costs are going to be weighed by a few different areas as you can imagine.
The size of the RV is going to be very influential on price. I mean, you can imagine a family of 7 is going to need a larger RV than just a couple would unless the family likes living in a small space. Maybe they live in a small house? The larger the RV the higher the price will generally be. You can find a variety of sized RV’s, but they mostly come in lengths of 13 feet to 35 feet long. However, the average size RV is around 20 – 28 feet. The type of RV will also affect the price, but we’ll explore more on the types of RVs in a minute.
WHEN ARE YOU COMING BACK?
Renting an RV for longer periods of time will allow you to negotiate for a lower price. Think about it. Renters will want to offer a better price with the ability to rent their RV out for a full month rather than risk renting short time and not have their RV rented for the rest of the month. It is strongly suggested to ask for long-term rental discounts.
TYPE A OR TYPE B OR MAYBE C?
The type of RV will affect the price with campers for rent monthly. You’ll find that there are so many different campers to choose from and the prices are different for each. Do you want a pop-up, a travel trailer, fifth-wheel or motor home? Your choice will change the resulting cost. Using RVShare for an example, looking for an travel trailer which sleeps 10 people runs on average of around $12 per person the trailer sleeps. Take this compared to a motor home which sleeps 8 that runs around $22 per person the motor home sleeps. This comparison can show how there will be a huge difference in price between type of RV you are renting.
