Frequently Asked Questions About Renting an RV Unit
Where do I start?
Our bookings are done right here through our website. Please submit a booking request through our “book now” page. Simply enter the dates you would like to book, and then choose from the available rental units. Once selected, you will be guided step by step through the booking process. You will also have the opportunity to add any additional “add on” items you may want from our drop-down menu. Once your request is submitted, we will complete the booking on our end by approving the request. In order to secure the reservation, you will be required to pay a 10% booking deposit (non-refundable).
What about insurance?
Proof of insurance IS REQUIRED. You can choose from different levels of insurance coverage and purchase it during the booking process. However, purchasing insurance may not be necessary if you are already covered by your current provider and can provide proof. We recommend asking your provider if you're covered first.
How old do I need to be to rent an RV?
You must be at least 25 years of age to rent an RV.
Is there a rental contract?
Yes. Our rental agreement is an online agreement and contains important information about your rental. It needs to be read completely and agreed to by electronically signing your name. Rentals will be canceled without a signed agreement and no refunds will be given.
Can I see the unit before I make a reservation?
Yes. If you’d like to see the unit first please call to make arrangements.
Is there a security deposit required?
Security deposits range from $750-$1,500 depending on which unit you rent. There are also security deposits for some of our add on options like generators. Deposits are used for any damages as well as fees that may be charged after your return. Fees may include cleaning fee, tank dumping fee, refueling, etc. Deposits are usually returned within a week of your rental drop off.
What time do I pick up / drop off the rental?
Typical pick-up times are between 9 and 11 am and drop off by 2:00 pm. We will contact you the week of your rental and schedule a specific time. All pick-ups and drop-offs are at our home location of 3408 Oak way in Chico. You also have the option to pay $50 for either an early pick up (the evening prior) or a late drop off (6 pm the evening of)
Do you deliver?
Yes. We offer delivery and pick up within Chico for $50 (does not include propane or tank dumping). Delivery outside of Chico is $5 per mile (calculated one way and includes set up and breakdown, propane refill and tank dumping).
Can we bring our dog?
Dogs are allowed upon approval only and for an additional fee of $100. There are no dogs allowed in the 2018 Coachman Prism motorhome.
Is smoking allowed in RV’s?
No smoking or vaping of any kind is allowed in any of our RV’s. The smoke odor will result in immediate forfeiture of the entire security deposit.
Do I need to empty the waste tanks before returning the RV?
Yes, both holding tanks need to be empty prior to returning the RV. You have the option of paying us $30 to empty the tanks.
What's included with the rental?
The RV's come stocked with kitchen supplies, a broom, a indoor and outdoor trash bin, two rolls of RV toilet paper, and in indoor and outdoor mat. We also have anti-sway (weight distribution) hitches available for you.
Is there any special equipment I should have for my car?
We recommend having a trailer brake controller for trailers weighing over 3000lbs. Our trailers all have a standard 7-way plug. Most have a 2-5/16” ball, but some smaller trailers have a 2” ball. We will let you know in advance. We also have a few weight distribution hitches available if you need one. It is the renter’s responsibility to know your towing vehicle’s maximum tow capacity and to make sure you have the proper set up to tow a trailer. We are happy to help with this if you have any questions just ask.
I’m new to RV’s, do you teach me how to use everything?
Yes, we will take as much time with you as you need to feel confident in using the RV. We also suggest watching youtube videos as well to prepare yourself. You will learn a lot of tips and tricks that way.
What if something goes wrong while we're camping?
While every effort is made by our company to have your trip go as smoothly as possible, there are times when something in the RV may not work correctly. In this case, we will attempt to troubleshoot whatever it is over the phone. Please do not hesitate to call for any reason. There are no stupid questions! In the event we cannot take care of your problem to your satisfaction, we will issue an appropriate refund.
When and how do I pay?
You pay 10% when booking your rental online with a credit card. The remaining balance will be automatically charged to your card the day prior to your departure, also there will be a hold placed on your card for the security deposit amount. This hold will be released once we confirm there are no claims against your security deposit. If you would rather pay cash or use a different card, please let us know prior to 48 hours before your pick up time.
What if I need to cancel?
Cancelations made more than 24 hours before departure forfeit their 10% booking deposit. No refunds will be given for cancelations made within 24 hours of departure.
What's included with an RV?
The RV will be supplied with a hose and attachments for dumping the waste tanks, a freshwater hose, power cord adaptors, and toilet paper. It will also come with any add on items you reserve. The RV does NOT come with any bedding, towels, soap, or other personal items. Because of COVID 19, we are no longer supplying kitchen items.
I still have a question.
