Keep Calm and RV On!

If you’ve always wanted to take a trip where you didn’t have to plan ahead for hotel rooms, but you don’t have an RV, you can rent an RV – then go where you want, when you want. With an RV, you have everything you need with you, so even if you can’t find a spot or the RV park you planned to stay at is full – it doesn’t matter. Camp anywhere for the night.

Head over to Jim’s RV to check out several of the floor plans our dealership has for you to rent. You can choose something small enough for two or large enough for a larger family. When renting an RV, you might want to remember a few things:

  1. Pick the size RV that will be most comfortable for your family. If you have two children with you, you will need one that sleeps at least four, but for some extra space, you might want something that sleeps six. Don’t forget, you’ll need storage space and you’ll want that extra space so the kids have room to play without being under your feet in case you get caught in the rain.
  2. Before you settle on a floor plan, make sure it has everything you need. If you plan on making a casserole, make sure the RV has an oven or a convection oven that is large enough for your casserole dish. If you plan on making two sides in addition to your main meat dish, be sure the stove has enough burners. Many RVs come with only two burners on the stove and may not have a regular or convection oven.
  3. Plan for the cost of the RV. Be sure to include the rental cost and the cost of gas. Another cost includes entry to RV parks. You’ll also need to plan your grocery cost, especially if you are on a budget. However, you can save money by packing groceries that you already have in the house. Be sure to ask whether there are mileage restrictions – if you go over, you could be charged for the extra mileage.
  4. Check into places that allow overnight parking in the event you don’t get as far as you wanted or if you find a park that is full. Wal-Marts, state parks, some rest areas allow overnight parking when you are in a pinch and are too tired to drive to the next RV park.

Since you are renting from Jim’s RV, you can rest assured that the RV you choose will be checked thoroughly before you leave. If you want any extra accessories, stop by the store before you head out.
