There are few adventures more exciting than a road trip. Being able to get out on the open road, go where the wind takes you and explore all of the wonders that North America has to offer is certainly thrilling. While driving in a car and staying in hotels is one road trip option, another option (and some would argue a much better option) is traveling in a recreational vehicle. In an RV, you don't have to worry about reserving hotel rooms or being at a certain place at a certain time to keep your reservations. Plus, your passengers will have much more room to stretch out, which makes traveling in an RV much more comfortable than traveling in a car.  

If the idea of exploring the open road and truly being in charge of your trip sounds like your cup of tea, then you might be thinking about getting an RV.  Instead of buying an RV and making such a huge financial commitment, you might want to consider renting one. Here's a look at some of the benefits of renting versus buying.

It's Cheaper

Renting an RV instead of buying one will save you a tremendous amount of cash. When you consider that the average cost of a brand new RV is more than $122,000 and that the cost renting one is a mere fraction of that price (rental prices vary and are based on the season, the type of RV you are renting and the amount of days you will be renting it), you can save yourself some pretty big bucks.

Plus, you're not just saving money on the purchase price; you're also saving money because you won't have to maintain a rental RV, insure it or store it — all things that cost money when you own a recreational vehicle.

No Need to Store

Unless you are planning on selling your home and living in your RV full-time, you are going to have to store the vehicle. Do you have enough space in your driveway? Will it be safe to leave it parked in front of your house? The answer to both of those questions is probably no, which means that you are going to have to keep it in a safe and secure storage facility when it's not in use.

Latest Model

Have you ever purchased a car before and as soon as you drive it off the lot, it seems like a brand new model with more bells and whistles comes out? Just like cars, RVs are constantly being modernized and upgraded. When you rent one, you don't have to worry about it being outdated; you can choose to rent a brand new RV that features all of the latest features each time you go on a road trip. 

So, what do you think? Does renting an RV sound more appealing to you than buying one? The vast majority of people who aren't intending on RVing on a constant basis may very well say 'yes'. Contact a rental company like Mountview Business Park to get started.
