In 2010 I flew in - solo - to SLC and drove over in a 30 footer. It was the only size left on August 10th, 2010. There were three available in the morning, and only one in the afternoon, but five still available down in Vegas. They said the small sizes sell out first. I had it a day short of two weeks, 1200 miles ($384) with $0.32 per extra mile: $3433.49 with tax. Plus gas.
Driving it from SLC to BRC: the wind was scary on the flat just before reaching Nevada, and a few spots up in the hills.
Driving it from BRC back to SLC: It was windy. The wind was so strong that it kept sucking the vent in the bathroom roof open. It eventually blew the paneling between the bathroom and the bedroom off.
Coming down the hills to Nevada/Utah border, it was so windy I thought I was going be blown off the road, but there was no place to stop safely. At the border town (name?), the waste bins at the gas stations were all blown away. It settled down, but leaving out into Utah on the flat, I still had to hold the the top of the steering wheel turned from 12:00 high over to around 1:30, sometimes 2:00, just to stay straight. Thankfully it was steady, unlike up in the hills.
Very fatiguing concentration required.
Would they be driving it to BRC, or would someone be able to pick it up from SLC, Denver, etc. and bring it to Reno or BRC for them?
Heard of rates as low as $1,500 for two weeks out of Phoenix, unlimited mileage, but you've got the drive.
This year, very shortly before the Burn, someone had their reservation cancelled. They posted on eplaya asking for advice/help. If I recall properly, someone was able to put them in touch with someone who got them setup with a Rental out of Reno! And not gouged. I'd suggest you search for those posts and see if you can come up with a contact by PM the involved parties.
Odd. No bears to watch in the dump. Oh well, lets go across the road & pick blueberries.
... but don't harm the red dragon that frequents the area from time to time. He and I have an agreement.
