The very term "motorhome" brings to mind that beautiful song, ‘Home On The Range,’ evoking vistas of the wide open countryside:
There are a whole lot of companies that provide various types of motorhomes, with different designs, sizes, and colors. So you can choose one according to the number of people traveling in it, and to suit your taste.
Some of these companies are: Fleetwood, Tiffin Motor Homes, Buddy Greg Motor Homes, Winnebago Motor Homes, Fleetwood, Damon Motor Coach, Cruise America, Roadtrek, Poulsbury, EL Monte RV, Abel RV Rental, Bates International Motor Homes. All of them have functional and luxurious motor homes on offer, which you can check out.
Before actually renting a motor home, you need to decide exactly what you need. For instance, there are three types of motor homes that you can choose from: Class A, Class B, and Class C. Each of them is designed to suit varying needs.
While Class A, which is the bus type, is larger and roomier than the others, Class C is known for being the safest, equipped with seat belts and air bags.
But, many people find Class B the most convenient, because its size allows you to park it practically anywhere you wish. Designed for various conditions and local roads, the sizes of motorhomes range from 22-32 feet, and can even be larger, if you want.
You also have the choice of picking between gas powered and diesel powered motor homes. While diesel, of course is more fuel-efficient, it is also far noisier. Whereas gas powered motorhomes are less noisy, while also being faster.
Before giving you a motorhome on rent, most rental agencies will require that you have a valid drivers’ license. Many motorhome rental agencies have their own websites where you can check out the motorhomes they have on offer, and also reserve them online. You may have to make a minimum down payment, varying from 150-500 dollars, or sometimes even more.
The rental charges of motorhomes can also differ according to the time of year you rent them in, while in some months, such as June-August, normal rates may be charged, you can get discounted rates during the other months of the year. You will need to check out the rates with the agency you book your motorhome from.
On the way, there are many camping sites you can stopover at, many of which are equipped with full service washrooms and sewage disposal systems along with heated swimming pools, where you can even take off on foot, hiking up pine tree filled mountain trails or even go fossil hunting, or perhaps lie back baking on a sandy beach.
