One of the biggest factors in the price of RV rentals is the type of RV and what it costs to purchase one.
For example, a new small towable travel trailer might only cost $25,000 to buy. But a new Class A luxury diesel pusher motorhome can easily cost $250,000 up to more than $2Million dollars. Buying an RV also entails paying taxes and registration.
Consider that if you rent a towable RV, you also need to have a vehicle that is capable of towing it. Otherwise, your rental RV can be a stationary RV rental.
RVs generally require much more maintenance than cars, real estate, and other types of rentals. From our RV ownership experience, RV maintenance has been one of our highest costs.
OK, so now you understand there are a lot of factors impacting the price of RV rentals. Many of these also relate to the cost of owning an RV.
– purchase price – taxes and registration – finance and interest – insurance, roadside assistance and more.
