Rented RV to share

Postby hands » Wed Jun 08, 2005 9:58 am

Have rented a 22' motorhome RV to share with two others besides myself. Expenses are listed on [url]http://www.sierrarv.com/motorhomes.htm[/url]
Will include housekeeping, bicycles and chairs. Add gas and water exchange at BM.

Kind of pricey, but the newer model RV should prevent mechanical issues.

Pickup RV in Reno on Wed, Aug 31 morning. Return sometime Monday.

Am 49 yo first time burner.

Dear 49 Y O First Timer,

I am a 32 Y O Second TImer who had an RV the first time out and am interested in how much the other beds would go for. Obviously the queen suite would be yours' and the other two places would be one next to the other.

Would you be doing AC by day-it's so nice to nap during the hotter hours. Give me a little bit more info and I'll let you know.

Is it commerce when soliciting to share cost and not make any profit?

As far as details: would like to divide costs equally between 3 people. I am open on who gets which bed. Would like to keep air con to a minimum, but hey, what's the point of an RV?

Kidding. There's a long-running commerce thread around here somewhere.

Hey, hands, do you already have the reservation for this? I'm asking because you might want to do that sooner than later (I've rented RV's two or three times now and they go fast).

I've rented RV's before. When are you returning it? I think RV places can't be open, by law, on Sundays and Monday following burning man is a holiday. Can you wait until Tuesday to return it?

You're going to have a hell of a time cleaning it AND you'll be tired and won't want to. Read this thread for some advice on that:

This thread covers RV rental advice in general:

Thanks for the tips.

Any recent advise for RV wash, dump grey water, and recycle / garbage drop off that will be open on Labor day?

Good question. I need to find out, too, for our trip out to dump and clean.

Here's a list from Google Local:

http://www.google.com/local?hl=en&lr=&r ... earch&sc=1

What I'd do is start calling to find out who will be open. Last time we had to wash a vehicle, they referred us to some truck washing place so you might ask them where you can go do that. Also, don't assume that a campground has a dumping station -- at least one we went to didn't and they referred us to a truck stop that was nearby somewhere on 80 -- ask around. I'll post more info here on the ePlaya as I get it for everyone to reference.

the cost for a trailer is much cheaper. would they let you switch your reservation to a trailer. I f so I might think about doing it. I have something that could tow it.

Am open to other options as so far no takers on sharing the motorhome.

emailed sierra rv today asking for availability of other RVs. What's your towing capacity?
