Has anyone ever had a problem with a rental car company (out of Reno Airport) refusing to rent them a car because they knew they were taking it to Burning Man? I know I will have to clean it up when I return it (and get rid of my week's worth of consumable and non-consumable trash), but I just don't want to have to get to the rental car counter, have them ask me what I'm doing for the week and then having them tell me, "sorry, we don't rent to Burners"

Maybe not detailed, but minimal dust, nothing beyond any week-long rental. They knew she had a flight soon and took advantage of the situation. Anecdotal evidence, but cautionary nonetheless.

This process was a little too sneaky for me, if I do end up renting a car or sharing a rental with someone I would rather just pay the deposit and expect to lose around $50-$100 in cleaning fees for something that we missed or just couldn't get out.
