Iowa RV Rental

If you're looking for a vacation that offers something a little different, why not consider renting an RV? Renting an RV is something that the whole family can enjoy. Today's RV rentals aren't anything like they were 10 or 20 years ago. RV rentals now come equipped with every type of luxury you can imagine. If you've never considered renting an RV for a great getaway, then consider it now.

RV rentals are spacious. Depending on the motorhome rental model you choose to rent, it can comfortably sleep from 4 to 8 individuals. Some RV rentals come equipped with leather furniture, DVD players, televisions, enormous beds, full-sized showers, and all the pots, pans, dishes, glassware, silverware, appliances and bedding you need. Camper rentals have never been so good. Travel trailer rentals provide everything you could need out on the road or the campsite. Better still, renting an RV means that no destination is out of reach.

When renting an RV you get the best of both worlds. You get affordable camper rental accommodations that are amazingly comfortable, plus you have a vehicle you can use for sightseeing. With a travel trailer rental, you don't have to worry about long lines at the airport, delayed trains or any of the other security issues now involved with traveling.

Iowa RV Rental Operating Tips

Before renting an RV, thoroughly check the vehicle inside and out for any existing damage. If there is damage anywhere on the RV rental, be sure to bring it to the attention of the RV rental operator and make sure the existing damage is listed on the Iowa RV rental agreement or RV rental contract.

If you are renting an RV for the first time, the RV rental operator might suggest taking an hour or so to go over some basic RV rental guidelines for safe operation of the RV. Together with the RV rental operator, you might wish to practice starting, stopping, turning, backing up and parking your new motor home rental. The RV rental operator should also ensure that all brake lights, headlights, tail lights, directional signals and belts are operating properly and that all tires are properly inflated before allowing you to leave the premises with your motorhome rental. You can also expect the RV rental operator to give you a thorough orientation of the motorhome rental to demonstrate all of its features. For example, you'll need to know how to:

  1. Safely secure dishes, luggage and other items while traveling in your motorhome rental.
  2. Operate any pop-outs and slide-outs on your travel trailer rental.
  3. Use the toilet in your RV rental and flush out the holding tanks.
  4. Hook the RV rental up to water and electrical outlets.
  5. Ready the sleeping quarters in your camper rental.
  6. Use the RV rental generator.
  7. Use the RV's side and back view mirrors to identify obstacles.
  8. Winterize the RV rental (if necessary).
  9. Operate the air conditioning unit, the refrigerator and other appliances in the RV rental.
  10. Set the brakes to your RV rental.
  11. Shut off the gas supply to the motor home rental.

Iowa RV Rental Safety Equipment

  1. Your RV rental must have an emergency road kit (flashlights, batteries, first aid kit, prescriptions, non-perishable food, bottled water, pet food and portable weather radio).
  2. You should be prepared with road maps and guidebooks of the areas you plan to visit.
  3. Know where the fire extinguishers are in the RV rental.
  4. Have warning devices to set at night if the RV rental is in any way disabled.
  5. Bring a cell phone with fully charged back-up batteries (or a way to charge the battery).
  6. Bring contact information for the RV rental company including numbers to call in case of an accident.
  7. Bring a weather radio receiver.
  8. Carry smoke alarms in the RV rental.
  9. Insurance. If the RV rental is not already insured by the owner, you may need to obtain a rider from your insurance agency that will cover the motor home rental.
  10. Have a spare tire ready for the motorhome rental.

Safe Driving Practices for Iowa RV Rentals

  1. Allow plenty of extra room to prepare for stopping the motorhome rental. The RV rental is considerably heavier than what you are used to driving and it will take you longer to safely stop.
  2. If possible, never slam on the brakes when in your motorhome rental.
  3. Before leaving a parked position, make sure all items inside the camper rental are safely secured. Completely shut all cabinets, drawers and doors. Make sure all steps and jacks are up, and that all canopies, cords and hoses are properly secured.
  4. Carefully check out your surroundings, especially before you back up in your travel trailer rental. By doing so, there is less chance that you will back into a tree branch or stump, sign, bicycle, or other type of obstacle that might cause considerable damage to the camper rental. When necessary, have someone stand behind the RV rental and safely guide you.
  5. Know the height of the RV rental so that you can safely travel beneath bridges.
  6. Drive in the right-hand lane except when you need to pass or turn.
  7. If your motorhome rental is causing a vehicle back-up behind you, pull over at the next opportunity to allow others to pass.
  8. If the RV rental experiences some type of mechanical breakdown, move as far off the road as possible.
  9. Never operate the camper rental while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  10. Never operate the camper rental when you are tired.
  11. Never allow someone who does not have the proper training to operate the RV rental.
  12. Never overload the RV rental.
  13. Plan an escape route and make sure exits are never blocked.
