The Best Way to Rent an RV for Newbies

RVing is the next big thing in outdoor adventures because it gives campers the option to escape into nature and extend the camping season. Although camping is fun no matter the weather, wouldn’t it be great to hang out by the fire with friends and then retreat into your travel trailer or motorhome for the night once the temperatures dip?

Renting an RV is the best way to try out the camping craze. Renting an RV is easy, but the unfamiliar bits like driving, towing, setting up, and dumping can be a little more challenging, especially if you’re an RV newbie.

Thankfully, RVezy offers the option to have your rental delivered, so you can still experience what it’s like to camp in an RV without having to do some of the parts you’re not ready to do on your own.

Let’s talk delivery!

The next big thing in RV rentals

Delivery is the next big thing in RV rentals, and many of RVezy’s owners have embraced the new trend.

RV delivery works two ways. First, it gives first-time RVers the chance to try out the RV lifestyle without worrying about driving, towing, parking, or setting up an RV. Second, it allows owners the opportunity to provide their renters with white-glove service throughout the rental.

Pro tip: Add another layer of comfort to your campout. Instead of booking a traditional campground, have your RV delivered to a unique stay with Hipcamp.

When you choose RV delivery, you’ll meet the RV owner at the campground and complete the inspection and rental agreement on-site. Once your trip is complete, the owners will come back to you to wrap things up. Since delivery is an add-on option, it’s up to the owner to decide the cost and terms.

Reasons to opt for delivery

RV delivery gives all RVers, experienced and newbies alike, the chance to connect to nature and travel to the most pristine parts of the country without worrying about the technical elements of RV travel. It also gives newbies a chance to learn the RV basics and build experience, so the next time you rent, you’ve got some RV camping credibility under your belt.

Still not convinced? Here are some of the reasons why you should consider RV delivery:

  • You don’t have the right equipment.
  • You’re not comfortable driving, towing, or navigating an RV just yet.
  • You’re a visual learner and want to watch the setup and take-down process.
  • You want the convenience of delivery to help maximize your camping time.

What’s included

RVezy wants every renter and owner to feel safe and secure. Whether you choose delivery or take the RV on a road trip, you can have the peace of mind of knowing you’re protected throughout the entire process.

Every rental comes standard with 100% RV rental insurance coverage and the option to add 24-hour roadside assistance, which is beneficial whether you take the rental on the road or not.

All RVezy rentals come with personalized touches and customized upgrades and add-ons. Since owners have the flexibility to create individualized listings, each rental RV will have something different included. Some common upgrades include:

  • Airport pickup.
  • Portable GPS.
  • Linens.
  • Generator.
  • Camping chairs.
  • BBQ.
  • Bikes.
  • Outdoor equipment.
  • Propane refill.
  • Septic services.
  • Weekly and monthly discounts.

Ask questions

Whether you have an RV delivered or take the rental on the road, the best bit of advice we can give newbie renters is to ask questions.

Download the free RVezy app on your smartphone and use it to search for RVs, ask the RV owner questions, and much more. Not sure what to ask? Here are some questions to get started:

  • How many people can the RV comfortably sleep? Consider whether adults are sleeping in the bunks, folding couches, and convertible sleeping spaces. Some beds might be a better fit for children than adults.
  • What time of day do you drop off RVs for delivery?
  • Do you offer septic clean-out services?
  • What will the generator run if our campground doesn’t have electrical hookups?
  • Do you have any resources we can read ahead of our trip to understand the systems inside the RV better?
  • How long will a tank of propane last?
