For those of us who define “roughing it” as packing our own road-trip food until we arrive at our hotel, camping has never held much appeal. “Glamping” in an RV, on the other hand, seems like a great compromise — you can enjoy the beauties of nature without giving up hot showers, electricity, and indoor toilets.
If you’ve been considering an RV glamping trip but have been deterred by high gas prices, your dream vacation doesn’t have to be put on hold. This is 2022, and everything can be delivered — even an RV. That means your RV comes without you needing to drive it, fill it up, or figure out how to set it up, thanks to RVshare’s delivery option.
How to go glamping with an RV delivery
Just go to the RVshare site, enter your destination, select your RV, and the home-away-from-home will be delivered to the site and all set up for you. After all, glamping is all about relaxation!
With RV delivery, you can:
- Explore all the sites near your home that you’ve been promising yourself you’d get to one day.
- Visit out-of-town family and friends while having your accommodations delivered to you.
- Add an RV glamping experience to a trip you already have planned.
Is it expensive to rent an RV?
Having an RV delivered saves on gas prices, but what’s the rental cost for the RV itself? Since you’re having the RV delivered, a “fifth wheel” type of RV (the kind that’s towed behind another vehicle) probably makes the most sense because you’re not going to be driving it. According to RVshare, this type of RV runs $60 to $150 per night for vehicles 10 or more years old and $150-$300 per night for newer RVs.
Also, delivery fees are extra and can vary widely, but they’re clearly stated on the RVshare site. Most providers offer delivery for a flat fee within a certain radius. The most common distance seemed to be about 50 miles round-trip.
To save even more, use these tips when searching for a rental:
Here are some tips from RVshare about how to get the best RV rental deals:
- Be flexible with dates
- Compare delivery fees to find the best overall price; it may not be the rental with the cheapest per-night rate
- Avoid holidays and peak seasons
- Negotiate with owners on rates
- Rent longer for cheaper nightly rates
- Don’t get a bigger RV than you need
