Arizona is one of the most beautiful desert states in America. It is home to the Grand Canyon, the red cliffs of Sedona, mountains, and endless sights in Phoenix.
And perhaps the best way to see all these attractions is to travel by RV whenever and wherever you like.
The cost of owning an RV, or the long drive from your home to Arizona may make RV travel seem impossible. It’s not.
The solution: renting an RV in Arizona.
KOA, or Kampgrounds of America, provides a list on its Web site of its preferred Arizonan RV rental agencies, which are located throughout the state.
The larger cities like Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff and Mesa all have RV rental agencies.
The class-C motor home is the most popular RV rental for families or couples. The motor home has one double bed, but can comfortably sleep six to nine people.
It also has a toilet and shower, microwave and refrigerator in the kitchen, and heating and cooling. Most Arizonan RV Rentals also sell home-keeping kits with dishes and linens for your trip, perfect for when you fly into Arizona.
The summer season in Arizona lasts from the end of May to the start of September. This is the busiest and most expensive time to rent an RV in Arizona.
RV rentals in the off-season cost around $20 a day less than during the summer season. You will generally get a cheaper per day rate the longer you rent your RV.
Before you rent, shop around. Pay particular attention to the pricing of each Arizonan RV rental agency and find a scheme that works for you.
Many companies charge a day rate on top of an additional mile charge. Also ask about insurance, as your car insurance may not cover the RV rental.
Ask about clean-up costs and if a security deposit is needed.
A little preparation in the beginning can save you money and frustration in the long run, but don’t forget to have fun along the way!
