Today Americans work hard and they are looking for a fun vacation. What better way to have fun then a week away in an RV! Now people are not just buying RV's- but they are also renting them.
RV Sales surged In 2017 with an increase for the 9th year in a row. December 2017 was the best month for RV sales since the RV industry stated keeping track. Baby Boomers who want to travel the country have been joined by Millenials newly entering the market. The sales have been helped by higher standards for quality of construction, light weight options, and high technology in both campers and camp grounds. (Winnebago saw stock prices rise by 76% in 2017.)
As for rentals, in 2018 more than 35 million people in the US are expected to rent an RV. How do you rent an RV? Here are 3 resources for RV Renters below:
