Small RV Rentals in San Francisco

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

Some of us want to travel in luxury, big motorhomes with lots of room and all the amenities. Then there are those of us who want to get off the beaten track and go where no large RV has gone before. For those people there are camper van rentals from San Francisco. Camper vans are really just small RVs that sleep a couple of people. The benefits of camper vans are that being small they are great on gas, saving you money over a large motorhome. Vans are also more maneuverable making them great for camping at the side of a lake or off the road by your favourite hiking spot. Camper vans put you right in the great outdoors. The kitchen is out the back of the van, so while you have the convenience of having a sink, a fridge and a stove you are still cooking outside. The only thing you are missing is a bathroom. If you like camping in a tent you will love a Campervan, all the conveniences of the larger RVs without having to sacrifice being one with nature. So grab a map, rent a camper van from San Francisco and let the adventure begin.

RV Rentals with Unlimited Miles in Los Angeles

Tuesday, November 13th, 2018

If you are looking for an RV rental with unlimited miles in Los Angeles we are here to help. RV rentals with unlimited miles are not going to be an easy thing to find. Most good RV rental companies do not want someone to rent an RV for 5 or 6 days and drive across the country in it. This puts excess miles and lots of wear and tear on the RV. So the first question to ask is “do I really need unlimited miles?” Most rentals (but not all) include some mileage in the nightly rate and additional mileage packages are available for purchase. Map out your trip. How many miles are you planning on driving? Remember that you do not want to spend your whole vacation sitting in an RV, leave lots of time for exploring the area around Los Angeles and wherever else you are driving. Usually an RV rental companies will require a minimum of 14 nights rental before they will offer you the option of purchasing unlimited miles. If you are planning a 14 night rental you will need to be driving at least 2300 miles to make this option worth your money. If you still want to look at an RV rental with unlimited miles in Los Angeles, go to the quote program and look for RVs with EMI or EMW in the description and you will be able to find the unlimited mileage option.

So what is the difference between a Class A, Class B and Class C RV?

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

If you have been searching for an RV rental you may be overwhelmed by all the choices out there. Do you want a motorhome or an RV? What is a camper van? Is it the same as a camper? What is the difference between a Class A, Class B and a Class C RV? Is there a difference between a motor coach, a caravan, a Winnebago and a recreational vehicle? Let’s see if we can clear some of this up.

So a motorhome, RV, motor coach, caravan and recreational vehicle are all the same thing. A Winnebago is a brand name of a company that sells motorhomes. When people use the term camper van they are referring to a Class B motorhome. Class B motorhomes come in two styles, basic and luxury. Both basic and luxury usually sleep 2 people but can have seatbelts for more. The basic camper van doesn’t have a toilet or shower while the luxury Class B has both. The basic camper has a kitchen accessible from the outside, while the luxury camper van has a kitchen you can access from the inside. A Class C RV can come in a large range of sizes, as small as 19′ and as large as 35′. A Class C motorhome is characterized by having a large bed over the driving area, allowing the capacity to sleep more people. A Class A RV are the large bus style motorhomes that have the flat front. While Class A RVs tend to be longer than Class C RVs, Class A RVs sleep less people are there is no large bed over the drivers area.

Hopefully this has helped to clear up some of the confusion. Motorhome or RV, Class A, B or C, Campervan or motor coach USA RV rentals has the perfect vehicle for your next RV rental vacation.

 

 

 

 

Best RV Rental in Los Angeles

Monday, November 5th, 2018

As you scour the internet looking for an RV rental for next years summer vacation, you are probably wondering, what is the best RV rental in Los Angeles? The thing is that there is no one answer to that question. RV rental needs are different for everyone, so no one RV rental in Los Angeles is going to be the best RV rental. Let’s look at the things that could make an RV rental be the “best”.

Size of RV is important for many people when trying to find the best RV rental in Los Angeles. Many people are looking to rent small camper vans or RV’s, Los Angeles has lots of choices if this is what you are looking for. Small camper vans usually fall into 2 categories, basic and luxury. Basic camper vans have seating that folds into a bed and a cooking area that can be accessed only from the back door of the vehicle. These camper vans tend to have a cheaper nightly rate. The luxury camper vans are the Road Trek and the Mercedes of camper van rentals. These camper vans have kitchens that are inside the camper and bathrooms with showers. Both the basic and the luxury camper vans usually have seating for up to five people but may only have sleeping for two. While a small compact RV is the best RV rental for some, other people think that the bigger the better makes for the best RV rental in Los Angeles. If you are one of those people the best RV rental in Los Angeles is a 39′ Class A motorhome rental with 3 slide outs.

RV rental pricing makes for the best RV rental in Los Angeles for many people. Los Angeles has lots of RV’s to choose from many of them with low enough nightly rental prices to accommodate any budget. In order to get the best RV rental pricing there are a few things to keep in mind. Booking early usually gets you the best RV rental pricing. My experience tells me that there are no last minute booking deals, the early booker gets the worm (or deal as the case my be). If you can travel in the shoulder season you will get a lower RV rental price from Los Angeles.

While the best RV rental from Los Angeles may be in the eye of the beholder, you will always find what you are looking for when you book your RV rental through USA RV Rentals.

One Way RV Rentals Los Angeles

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

One Way RV Rentals are an excellent way to see the USA and what better place to start than Los Angeles California. One way rentals starting in Los Angeles are not available to every city but there are enough locations that will allow one way rentals that you will have lots of options of where you want to go.

One mistake that people make when booking a one way RV rental is picking cities too far away. Remember that you do not want to spend your whole holiday driving trying to get to your end city, it’s the journey not the destination that is important. Plan your trip so that you are driving about 4 hours a day. This leaves you lots of time to stop and take a hike or visit a museum or any other number of things you may find to do on your RV rental adventure. Consider starting your one way RV rental in Los Angeles and dropping it off in Seattle. Driving up the coast of the Pacific Ocean is beautiful any time of year. A one way RV rental from Los Angeles to Denver is another great option. If you are looking for a long weekend trip try renting an RV from Los Angeles to San Francisco or Los Angeles to Las Vegas. If you are planning a two or three week RV rental then you could even do a one way rental from Los Angeles to New York City or Orlando or Miami Florida.

One way RV rentals from Los Angeles provide you so many options for your RV rental vacation, so grab a map and decide which part of the USA that you want to get ready to explore.

RVing California National Parks

Tuesday, September 18th, 2018

Renting an RV and hitting the open road is a dream for a lot of people. Why not make this the year you act on your dream and rent an RV from Los Angeles or San Francisco. California has lots of great places to visit, but if you want to get away from the hustle of everyday life try a road trip to one of California’s national parks.

Yosemite National Park is located in the Sierra Nevada’s and became protect land in 1864. In the park you can see the power of the glaciers as they smoothed and shaped the granite rock. The drive to Glacier Point is almost as spectacular as Glacier Point itself. Take your RV rental to the Point or park at Badger Pass and take a shuttle to the top. Other must sees in Yosemite are Tioga Pass, Yosemite Falls and Halfe Dome.

Located south of Yosemite is Sequoia National Park.  Here the you will see the giant sequoia trees including General Sherman, the largest tree on earth (by volume). While there take a tour through Crystal Cave, visit the Giant Forest Museum, and stop for pictures at Tunnel lLog.

Joshua Tree National Park in south eastern California is the meeting place of the Mohave and the Colorado deserts. Along with the Joshua Trees themselves you can see the wonder of nature as water has eroded the rocks in this park. Must see locations are Scull Rock, Barker Dam, Mecca Hills and Cholla Cactus Garden.

Kings Canyon National Park is located next to and connected to Sequoia National Park. Kings Canyon is one of the least visited parks due to its lack of roads, it was decided to leave this park as untouched as possible. Most of the park can only be access by overnight back country hiking. There are things that you can see without an overnight pack, like Boyden Cavern, Grant Gove and Kings Canyon Scenic Byway that follows along Kings Canyon.

Death Valley National Park unlike its name sounds is a beautiful desert filled with surprisingly beautiful and vibrate places, but visiting this park in the off season is much more enjoyable. October through May is the perfect time to visit Death Valley and the temperatures are much more tolerable. Beside RV rental companies will not let you take their RVs into Death Valley in the summer months.

Lassen Volcanic National Park is locate 50 miles east of Redding California. The worlds largest volcanic dome lies here. Discover the earths healing powers as you see the devastation that occurred in the 1915 volcanic eruption and how now the flora and fauna flourish between the rocks of the hardened lava. There are 150 miles of trails to explore though this park for all skill levels.

There are many more national parks to visit in California, so get out your calendar and start planning next years family RV rental vacation in California or be spontaneous and rent an RV for this weekend and see where the road takes you.

One Way RV Rental from Los Angeles to Las Vegas

Friday, April 13th, 2018

One way RV rentals are a great way to see the country. One of the most popular trips is from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. One way RV rentals can be harder to get because of availability. Be flexible when planning your trip. If Los Angeles to Las Vegas is not available, try requesting Las Vegas to Los Angeles. Always book one way rentals as early as possible so that you will not be disappointed.

If you are in Los Angeles I am sure that you will want to spend some time at the beach. Leo Carrillo State Park is located across the Parkway from South Beach and has great camping facilities. Mature sycamore trees provide shaded campsites and there is a general store for those extras you may need. At low tide there are tide pools to explore and several caves and tunnels to adventure into.

After you have spent some time at the Pacific Ocean it will be time to leave Los Angeles and move on to do some hiking in Joshua Tree National Park. During the busier months campgrounds tend to book out, so it is a good idea to book your campgrounds in advance. Cottonwood Campground can accommodate RV’s up to 35 feet and is close to many hiking trails of all skill levels.

On your one way RV rental trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas take exit 153A near Deer St and travel up old Route 66 from Victorville to Barstow. Route 66 was first established in 1926 as one of the main fairways of travel though the USA. Businesses along this route prospered until the new interstate put many of these local businesses out of business in the 1980’s. A trip down Route 66 is like taking a trip through time as not much as changed over the last 6 decades.

A must stop is Elmer’s Bottle Tree Ranch. Just like the name implies, this unique piece of artwork has metals poles stuck in the ground with thousands of bottle decorating them to make them look like trees.

Next stop on Route 66 is the old Mohawk gas station. Though this gas station is no longer open for business it looks just like it did when it was first open for business more than 80 years ago.

Just around the block from the Mohawk is Antique Station. While it does not look like much on the outside, it is an antique collectors dream come true. If you like old things make sure you leave yourself a couple of hours to wander around this store.

Make sure you stop for lunch at Emma Jean Hollands Burgers. This little restaurant has been serving locals and travelers since 1947, and has great food. It has been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, it has also been featured in a number of movies and TV shows. Show up early as some days they are closed by 12:30 pm and bring cash.

Have you ever wanted to eat a McDonald’s Big Mac in a railway car? Well here is your chance. Barstow Station has a McDonald’s housed in a couple of old passenger train cars. There are other fast food options here if you are not feeling McDonald’s. There is also a couple of souvenir shops, a convenience store and a liquor store.

There are many Route 66 museums along the way, many with old signs collected as the old businesses slowly started to close down. This little piece of American history may slowly be gone as some of the local businesses have closed and some have been lost to fire over the last years. Take the time and see it while you can.

Next stop on our one way RV rental from Los Angeles to Las Vegas is Calico Ghost Town. The Ghost town offers 265 campsite with full or partial hookups and also has spots for group tent camping. Campground has hot showers, restrooms, grills and fire rings. There are also two dump stations. Calico is an old west ghost town that startup in 1881 during the biggest silver rush in Californian history. The town was abandoned a few years later as the price of silver plummeted. In the 1950’s the town was bought and restored to its former glory. There is a house made out of old green glass bottles, an old one room schoolhouse, a general store, a barbershop and a place to try your luck at gold panning. There is also an old mine that for a couple of dollars you can take a walk through. The mine is safe, well lit and well ventilated but be careful if you are a little claustrophobic as you are underground in an old mining tunnel.

The Mojave National Preserve is a place that you could definitely spend some time. Plan out your one way RV rental trip to make sure you do not rush through this spot. Things to know before you go are

  1. there is no gas in the park, so make sure you fill your tank.
  2. there is no food in the park, so stock up.
  3. many of the roads are washboard dirt roads, while most can be driven on by an RV, do your research.
  4. you can camp almost anywhere in the park as long as it has a fire ring.

Built in 1924 the Kelso Depot housed the train station, telegraph office, ticket office, restaurant, reading room and accommodations for the railroad employees. Now it’s a National Park Service Visitor Center. The building now has an interesting little museum with lots of interesting information about the history of the railroad and the surrounding area, indoor bathrooms and a great visitors information center with maps and lots of ideas of things to do in the park.

Teutonia Peak is a 2 mile hike up to the summit where you can see miles and miles to the snow covered peaks in the distance. As you turn around to go down the way you came you will see many old mine shafts littering the landscape. These shafts are now covered with metal grates but you can still not see the bottom of some of these shafts.

Kelso Dunes is another great hike, it can be a bit hard to climb as you are walking up sand but once you reach the top the view out over the dunes is totally worth it. Ring Trail is another worthwhile hike. Again part of the hike can be a little challenging but between the very narrow canyon, the giant limestone cliffs and the petroglyphs it is a must travel kind of trail.

Your one way RV rental from Los Angeles to Las Vegas has now brought you into Nevada. A quick stop into the Whiskey Pete Casino has a small exhibit dedicated to Bonnie and Clyde. The exhibit has the actual car that Bonnie and Clyde were shot in complete with bullet holes.

While the Pioneer Saloon and the general store that sits next to it look like they should be on the set of some wild west movie they are actually establishments that service food and drink, and other things that you would expect to find in a general store. The saloon was built in 1913 and has many of the original finishings, such as the bar that was actually built in the 1860’s and the brass rail that you can rest your feet on that was installed when the bar was built. The history of this bar is immense and the owner has kept bits of this history around for all to live through.

Before you finish your one way RV rental from Los Angeles to Las Vegas make your last overnight stop in Valley of Fire State Park. The layers of red, orange, pink and yellows rise up out of the landscape, making the views and the trails in this 40,000 acre park something that you will always remember. This park has some of the highest concentrations of petroglyphs and petrified trees anywhere in the US, dating back over 2000 years. The park is open year round and has campsites with shaded picnic tables, fire rings and water available.

Well the last stop is Las Vegas Nevada. Is it the casinos that get you excited? Or are you looking for family adventure? Maybe you want to see some of the mob history that Las Vegas is famous for? There are so many great things to do in Las Vegas.

This list is just a few of the amazing things you can enjoy on your one way RV rental from Los Angeles to Las Vegas, there are so many more adventures to be had. Check out the links below for things to do in Las Vegas.
