Class C RV Rentals

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Class C RV’s are the most common type of RV. Class C RV’s are characterized by the large bed directly over the drivers cabin. Class C’s are available in many sizes. I have seen them as small as 22’ and as larger are 35’. These motorhomes tend to sleep more people than a similar sized Class A as you get that extra bed over the driver. Most Class C RV’s allow you to walk from the driver’s area into the cabin of the RV, but I have seen exceptions to this, so it is always good to ask before you rent the RV if this is important to you. This RV will tend to be a little easier to drive compared to a Class A motorhome because the wheelbase is much more similar to regular passenger vehicles. In the end this is the most popular type of RV simply because of the extra sleeping space that it provides. Class C RV’s can be rented from almost any major city across the US including, Phoenix (PHX), Los Angeles (LAX), Chicago (ORD) San Francisco (SFO), Denver (DEN),Boston (BOS) Miami (MIA), Orlando (MCO), Ft Lauderdale (FLL) Las Vegas (LAS), RENO (RNO), New York City (NYC), Dallas (DFW), Salt Lake City (SLC), and Seattle (SEA).

Class A RV Rentals

Monday, February 6th, 2017

Class A RV’s are characterized by the large flat front, similar to a bus. While Class A RV’s tend to be the longest of the RV’s available they also tend to sleep fewer people as there is no bed over the driver’s area of the RV. Class A RV’s also tend to be the most luxurious RV’s available, having more high end features. These RV’s are usually over 28’ long and some can be as long as 45’. Driving a Class A RV will take a little practice as they drive a little differently than most vehicles. You will need to take corners wider than with most vehicles as a Class A handles more like a bus. Any Class A RV that you find available for rent on this site will only require a standard driver’s license. Class A’s can be rented from Phoenix (PHX), Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), Denver (DEN), Miami (MIA), Orlando (MCO), Las Vegas (LAS), RENO (RNO), New York City (NYC), Dallas (DFW), Salt Lake City (SLC), and Seattle (SEA).

The motorhome you choose is really a matter of preference, and how many people you need to accommodate in your rental.

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

Class B RV rentals are compact vehicles set up to make your camping experience more comfortable. Class B RV’s or vans usually sleep 2 or 3 people. Many of these vans are set up with toilets and showers and small kitchens. The amenities in the Class B vans vary depending on where you rent them from so check the vehicle details to see which van is right for your trip. Class B vans can be rented from Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Denver, Miami, New York, Salt Lake City and Seattle. Check the quote program for vehicle availability and pricing.

Los Angeles – About the City

Friday, May 24th, 2013

 

Geography

Los Angeles hosts a wide variety of geographic landscapes. While Los Angeles is mostly a desert basin, it is also surrounded by the San Gabriel Mountain range and split by the Santa Monica Mountains. This makes for some great hiking and mountain biking terrain. LA also has over 75 miles of coast line along the Pacific Ocean with some of the best surfing in the world, but don’t worry if you are not a seasoned pro when it comes to surfing there are lots of mellow waves to test out.

Weather

Los Angeles boasts 292 days of sunshine, that fact alone makes Los Angeles a top destination on my list. With an average high of 75 degrees and an average low of 57 degrees, there is no wrong season to visit Los Angeles. The average yearly rainfall in Los Angeles is 15 inches.

Multicultural LA

Los Angeles is one of the most cultural diverse cities in the world, being one of only two cities in the US without a majority population. Boyle Heights is a must stop for Mexican food with a predominately Hispanic/Latino culture. Chinatown has something for everyone, great food, farmers markets, galleries and walking tours. Try the “Undiscovered Chinatown” tour to uncover history, treasures and great shopping. Little Tokyo is home to the Japanese American National Museum, and the Nisei Week festival. Leimert Park is the African-American cultural mecca of Los Angeles, stop to visit the art galleries and the eateries. Koreatown host the highest concentration of restaurants and nightlife in all of Southern California. From dive bars to high end cocktail lounges Koreatown is a city that never sleeps.
