So you are thinking of doing a road trip in the US? There are many campervan/RV rental companies in the market so here are few things to get you going and to think about:
Space is a big thing, especially if you are traveling for more than a week. A lot of campervan/RV rental companies provide a van with a bed to sleep in – you cannot actually stand inside the camper at any time. Our Hitops & Kugas all allow you to stand up in them, even with the bed made up – that’s a big advantage! With an internal height of 6’5’’/1.96m, it gives you a lot more room to move around.
All our campervans come with a proper kitchen – a sink, gas cooker, fridge & microwave – and it is INSIDE THE CAMPER. A lot of other companies feature a kitchen yet it is in the rear of the vehicle and facing the outside – meaning you need to stand outside at all times when you would like to cook or even access your fridge – something rather unpleasant when it rains, is cold or if you feel like a snack in the middle of the night.
All campers come with USB plug-ins which are charged by a second battery, meaning you can charge your phones & tablets at all times – very handy these days. The vans also come with 2*120V power plugs so you can charge any electrical items whenever you are at a powered campsite (note – this only works at a powered campsite).
The camper seats quite comfortably 4 to 6 people at all times (note – during driving a maximum of 3 people are allowed inside the vehicle). Handy when meeting friends or other campers on the way and would like to sit together. It also functions as an eating area with a big table – meaning you can eat inside the camper – something again rather unique as with most other campers you actually need to sit outside to eat breakfast/lunch/dinner.
Our Kuga Campervans come with solar panels meaning your second battery will be charging at all times when the sun is out. The second battery charges the internal lights & USB ports, as well as the refrigerator, so this is a very handy addition to your campervan rental.
While it is not part of the actual camper – it comes as part of each rental. FREE UNLIMITED MILES means no pre-organising of the exact trip you will be taking… or any other fees at the end of your rental! IMPORTANT – always check the total price with other campervan providers – the daily rate might look rather cheap, yet when you need to add an additional $25/day or $35/day for miles it will add up very very quickly!
