Not everyone’s ready to commit, and that’s okay. Jumping head first into something that you aren’t completely confident with is a surefire way to raise your stress level and sometimes can lead to big problems for you and your family. But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the fun. RVing can be a great way to enjoy your next vacation, and luckily for you, places like Krenek RV Super Center has an RV rental department so you can enjoy this pastime without dipping into your savings. We’ve provided some of the benefits of renting an RV so you can stop by and let us know if you’re interested in checking out the trailers we offer. We’re in Coloma, near Kalamazoo, Michigan and La Porte, Indiana.
Versus Staying in Hotels
Road trips are a great family activity, and many families default to driving in a car and sleeping in hotels or motels. Sure, this is convenient and comfortable, but it can get expensive and, frankly, it isn’t always clean. With an RV, you’ll have more control over the hygiene, because you’re the one doing the cleaning. This means you’ll know exactly how thorough the last cleaning was and, now that the secrets of the hotel industry are coming out, it’ll probably help you feel less stressed in your own living space.
Your also limited as far as food goes. Small meals are doable, but most of the time traveling by car means you’ll be eating out most of the time. With an RV, you’ll have your own kitchen and food storage so you can enjoy freshly prepared meals every day.
RVs are also ideal for bigger families. Traveling in a bigger group means more beds and maybe even more rooms. That money can add up fast and there’s more juggling to make sure each hotel can accommodate you. With RVs, you just have to inform the dealer how many beds you need and then your set for the entire trip.
Versus Buying your Own RV
Don’t get us wrong. Buying an RV can be a great life investment, especially if you know you’re going to be using it frequently. After all, at a certain point, it doesn’t make any financial sense to continue to rent an RV over and over again. But not everyone wants to RV every other weekend. Some families just want to experience it maybe a couple times a summer. No need to buy entire RV for trips that only happen every once in a while. So instead, you may want to rent.
Not only can this be the more sensible option financially, but it can help you enjoy a wider range of amenities. Maybe one trip you try out a towable RV and another you try out a motorhome. You might be interested in the bare minimum for a quick trip, but a more luxurious vehicle for a longer one. And then you can check out all the latest features without having to buy new rigs every year.
Preview the RV Lifestyle
Renting can also be a great option for those who are considering buying an RV. When you’re trying to sift through your options, you may start to feel a little overwhelmed by all the choices. Plus, if it’s your first time buying an RV, you may not know the benefits of one feature over another. While research always helps, you can also try renting a few RVs to get an idea of what to expect. This can help you decide if RVing is right for you and help you pick a final, perfect option.
