How to rent an RV for only $1 a day

Editor’s note: This is a recurring post, regularly updated with new information.


I’m seeing many recreational vehicles, also known as RVs, driving along U.S. interstates right now. After all, with travelers looking to get outdoors and travel this spring and summer, RVs are an attractive way to travel. The main problem: RV rentals tend to be expensive.

But, RV rentals don’t have to cost a fortune. In 2018, I managed to rent a five-person RV for $1 per day from Las Vegas to Denver. And last summer, I snagged a mid-pandemic RV rental from Los Angeles to Dallas for just $1 day. On my first rental, the rental company even reimbursed all of my gas receipts and provided a $100 travel allowance.

Although finding deals that include gas stipends and travel allowances take patience, it’s not impossible. And, $1 or $5 per day RV rentals without gas or travel allowances are relatively easy to find. The secret is that companies are willing to pay you to transport their vehicles (in this case, RVs, but car rental companies do something similar) when they need specific vehicles at a particular location. This is called a “relocation rental.”

Relocation rental daily rates and incentives vary greatly and often change or disappear with no notice. But, as of writing, there are some excellent deals to be found. Here’s everything you need to know to find, book and complete a relocation rental.

Who can do a relocation rental?

Most drivers can do a relocation rental. No special license is required to rent or drive an RV in the U.S. However, most rental agencies require that renters be over a particular age (usually 21) and have held a license for a certain amount of time (typically at least two years).

If you’re renting in a country other than the one that issued your driver’s license, you may need a translated version of your license, such as an International Driver’s Permit.

And although RVs can be great for family trips, some relocations don’t allow children under a particular age. Some rental agencies rent car seats, while others require parents to provide their own car seats for relocation rentals.

All the relocation rentals I’ve seen allow at least two occupants. But, some agencies may charge an additional fee for each additional driver after the primary renter. And some relocation rentals allow up to six occupants. But be sure to consider potential sleeping arrangements before deciding to travel with the maximum number of travelers.

Some relocation rentals even allow pets. But most — especially in the U.S. — expressly forbid pets. So double-check the terms and conditions before booking if you’re planning to travel with a pet.

How to find relocation rentals

Some RV rental companies list relocation rentals on their websites. But the easiest way to find RV relocation rentals is to check websites like Imoova, Transfercar and Coseats periodically. In this section, I’ll give a quick overview of each of these websites.

Imoova

For U.S.-based drivers, Imoova is the most comprehensive search engine I’ve found for relocation rentals. You can filter listings by many criteria, including pick-up city, drop-off city and the number of passengers.

Imoova example for March 2021

As of writing, Imoova lists a massive number of RV factory relocations from the Chicago area. You have to pick up these relocation rentals by March 25, but you get up to 11 nights to do the relocation as well as up to a $300 gas allowance. This type of relocation is challenging to snag during a typical year since they’re popular with international tourists. But this year, RV rental companies are desperately looking for travelers to do these relocations.

When you book through Imoova, you’ll usually need to pay a $25 booking fee. Imoova also has listings for Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Europe.

Transfercar

Transfercar is another resource for RV relocation rentals in the U.S. However, as its name suggests, the company usually offers more cars than RVs. You can use Transfercar’s handy map of current pick-up locations to browse all the listings.

Or, you can check a list of options and sort by vehicle type, transmission, pick-up location, drop-off location, number of days and what’s included in the rental.

Transfercar list for March 2021

Transfercar usually has fewer options than Imoova. But it’s worth checking both sites.

Coseats

Coseats primarily offers ridesharing. However, the site often lists some camper van relocations in Australia and New Zealand that you can reserve without paying any booking fees.

Other tips for finding relocation rentals

If you find a promising listing on Imoova, Transfercar or Coseats, read the listing details to see which rental company is offering the relocation rental. Then, check that company’s website to see if they’re advertising relocation rentals on their site.

Some rental companies don’t list their relocation rentals (in that case, you’ll need to book directly through one of these search engines). However, many do — often with additional information or incentives and usually with lower fees. In the U.S., for example, Apollo, Jucy, Cruise America, El Monte and Road Bear tend to list relocation rentals directly.

When to book a relocation rental

Individual rental locations often book more rentals than their local fleet can support. When this happens, the rental company must shift RVs from one office to another to support the demand. And this need for last-minute shifting can lead to solid relocation rental incentives. Prime RV rental season in the U.S. is during the summer, so this is when you’ll see the most significant number of relocation rental offers.

Unfortunately for planners, most relocation rentals are listed no more than a week or two before the necessary pick-up date — and the lucrative incentives usually don’t appear until a day or two before. But, if you can be flexible, or if you live in a city that often has relocation rentals, you may be able to jump on an offer for a last-minute road trip.

There’s also shoulder season demand as individual rental locations need to receive new vehicles from the factory in the spring and early summer. Factory relocation rentals are easier to build a vacation around, as you can usually book these relocation rentals a few months in advance. The downside is that the pick-up location is often at the factory – which may be at least a few hours from a major airport. Apollo, Road Bear and Cruise America each offer factory relocation deals every spring. And El Monte still has a few last-minute March and April relocations available for this spring.

What to know before booking

El Monte Coachman Leprechaun RV rental

If you’ve found a tempting relocation rental offer, here are some factors to consider before booking:

Mileage and duration of rental

The distance and duration of your rental will directly affect how much you enjoy the experience. In particular, be sure to consider:

  • How many days are included in the rental?
  • Can you add extra days at an additional cost?
  • How many miles are included in the rental?
  • How does this compare with the mileage of your desired route?
  • What’s the cost if you go over the mileage? Is there a penalty fee or a per-mile rate?
  • How many miles would you need to drive each day to complete the relocation?
  • Are you required to drive only during daylight?

The most important aspect is how many miles you’ll be driving each day — especially if you want to stop at sites during your road trip. Remember that RVs generally need to be driven slower than cars. So a trip will almost certainly take longer than your favorite map app estimates. And if you aren’t comfortable driving bulky vehicles, helming an RV can be more tiring than you expect.

Be particularly careful when considering relocation rental offers in Australia, as I’ve found multiple seemingly-appealing offers that would have required driving all day every day to cover the distance needed in the time allotted.

Type of vehicle

Relocation rentals can range from compact cars to six-berth RVs 30-feet in length (or longer). Make sure your rental not only serves your needs in terms of facilities but is also is a vehicle you can safely drive. In particular, make sure you’re comfortable with the vehicle’s size and transmission type.

Most relocation rentals in the U.S. are in vehicles with automatic transmission. But many rentals abroad have manual transmissions. You may also prefer a smaller vehicle when driving on narrow European roads or the left side of the road in Australia or New Zealand.

Incentives offered

When I booked my relocation rental from Las Vegas to Denver in the summer of 2018, the company needed to move several RVs needed out of Las Vegas. As such, I could choose from a handful of vehicle types. I selected the one offering the best incentives: A $1 per day rate with all fuel reimbursed and a $100 travel allowance.

Apollo RV booking

In general, possible incentives include:

  • A low daily rate
    • $1 or $5 per day is typical for U.S. relocation rentals
  • Fuel
    • First tank free (goes out with a full tank, can be returned empty)
    • $50 to $400 fuel allowance with receipts
    • Full reimbursement for fuel with receipts
  • Travel allowance
    • $50 to $100, usually no receipts required
  • Trip needs
    • Ferry tickets for vehicle and/or driver
    • Toll pass
    • Camping equipment, such as table and chairs, kitchen kit, linen kit or sleeping bags
    • Free generator usage
  • Propane
    • Full tank provided, can be returned empty

Additional costs

Renting an RV for $1 per day is appealing, especially if you can also get some other incentives mentioned above. However, be sure to consider the following expenses that you might incur. I’ve included the fees for my relocation rental experience, but note they may be different for other rentals and companies.

  • Fuel expenses
    • The Class C motorhome I rented cost about $0.33 per mile in fuel
  • Extra mileage fee ($0.45 per mile after included mileage)
  • Positioning expenses
    • Flights, buses or car rentals to and from the pick-up and drop-off cities
    • Uber, bus or taxi fares to and from the pick-up and drop-off sites
  • Camping expenses
    • Varies in cost, I paid $30 per night in Zion National Park for a site with electric hookup or $42 per night at a campground near the interstate with full hook-ups
    • You may be able to camp for free in select areas with no hook-ups (including some Walmart and Cracker Barrel parking lots, but it’s best to make a purchase and check with a manager before settling in for the night)
  • Extra driver fees ($3 per person, per day)
  • Add-ons offered by the rental company
    • Kitchen kit (included for us, but some rentals charge around $50)
    • Linen kits or sleeping bags ($10 per person)
    • RV-friendly toilet paper ($5 for four rolls)
    • RV toilet chemical ($2.50 per bottle)
    • Generator use ($5 per day or $3 per hour)
    • Optional equipment, such as camp chairs, child seats and a GPS device
    • Cleaning fee ($150 if you don’t return the RV clean)
    • Dumping fee ($150 per tank if you don’t return the gray and black tanks empty)

I limited extras on my relocation by booking directly with Apollo, bringing sleeping bags and towels, dumping the tanks before returning the vehicle, not using the generator and cleaning the RV before returning it.

Apollo RV booking process

However, if your relocation company offers tank dumping at a reasonable cost, consider paying for it. RV tank sensors can be extremely fickle, so you may never get the sensor to show empty even if you dump your tanks entirely before returning your rental.

Insurance options

Using the right credit card is essential when renting a car because some cards provide car rental coverage. Unfortunately, most credit cards that include car rental coverage — including the Chase Sapphire Reserve, which is my regular go-to card when renting vehicles — explicitly exclude recreational vehicles. After Citi discontinued car rental coverage on its cards in Sept. of 2019, I’ve yet to find a card that provides car rental insurance when you rent a recreational vehicle.

Apollo, the company I used for my relocation rental in 2018, required a $1,000 bond and included standard liability at no cost on relocation rentals. But, not all relocation rentals include standard liability insurance.

Apollo RV liability options

Even if you find a credit card that provides car rental insurance when renting an RV (or you purchase travel insurance that includes car rental insurance when you rent an RV), this insurance usually only covers damage to the rental vehicle. You’ll still want to make sure that your car insurance or other insurance covers liability for damage caused to other cars and personal property as well as injuries to people involved in an accident.

What type of relocation rentals are available?

Relocation rental options constantly change, so the following options may not still be available. But, the chart below shows some appealing domestic options that were available when this article published:

For this chart, I calculated the minimum driving distance and estimated driving time using Google Maps. However, you’ll likely go slower than estimated by Google Maps.

These examples serve to help you determine what types of deals are possible. But, you may want to add a few extra days to your rental or accept a lower fuel allowance to book a rental that works well with your schedule and allows you enough time to enjoy the trip.

How to make a one-way relocation RV rental work

Paved roads with signage from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon (Photo by Artur Debat/Getty Images).

Let’s be honest: Renting a one-way last-minute relocation rental is challenging to fit into a vacation for most travelers. Since you typically need to book RV relocations at the last-minute, it’s best to make flexible, fully refundable travel plans as a back-up if you don’t find a suitable relocation RV.

And, you may need to book a one-way flight or car rental on one or both sides of your relocation. Luckily, it’s easy to find inexpensive airfare right now on most routes. I’ve had great luck using Autoslash to find cheap one-way car rentals, although car rentals have been a bit more difficult and expensive during the pandemic.

Bottom line

Renting an RV for $1 per day may sound appealing. And I’ve had great fun on both of my relocation rentals. But there are additional costs to consider, such as fuel, camping fees, extra driver fees and supplies. However, if you’re able to jump on a last-minute relocation or a factory relocation — and are generally comfortable with the idea of driving an RV — it can be a great low-cost opportunity to get away and see the country.

Driving Camper Rentals - USA Road rules

It’s important to remember that each state often has its own set of laws, so always look out for variations. 
 

You drive your USA RV rental on the right-hand side of the road and the traffic light sequence is red, green, yellow, then back to red again. Hitch-hiking or picking them up is illegal in certain states, while you can often take a right at a red stoplight, unless signage indicates otherwise. Four-way stop signs are also a minefield. The first person to stop has the right of way, but not everyone plays fair. Just be patient and don’t speed. It’s also worth investing in a GPS or navigation system. Check with Motorhome Republic if this is part of the package when you rent RV USA – you don’t want to get lost in America.

 

RV hire USA - A guide to driving a motorhome in the USA

 

A road trip across the United States of America is on every traveller’s wishlist. This vast and diverse country is home to an array of interesting things to do and see, and the best way to get around is without a doubt a self-drive RV holiday. Renting a motorhome or camper gives you flexibility, freedom and the chance to explore at your own pace.
 

Before you hit the road in your motorhome rental, it’s important to wrap your head around what it’s like to drive in the USA. We have compiled a handy guide to help you prepare for this exciting journey. From road rules to travel planning tips, we’ve got you covered.

USA RV Rental Road Rules

While exact road rules vary from state to state (each state has its own official laws), most of them overlap. We can’t cover every state in detail in this guide, but we can provide you with a good overview of what to expect across the country. If you’d like to do further research, you can find more information on the Advanced Drivers of America website.
 

Please note that distances and speeds are all measured in miles in the USA rather than kilometres as they are measured elsewhere.

 

Licensing

 

The type of licence you are required to carry will depend on which state(s) you are driving through. Some states allow you to present your foreign licence only, while others require that you also present an ‘International Driving Permit’. You will definitely need this permit if your licence is not written in the English language. Be sure to research each state’s requirements before you leave and start your RV hire USA vacation. If in doubt, get an International Driving Permit just in case.

 

Speed limits

The speed limits differ from state to state. The fastest limit in the USA is 85 miles per hour, but this limit is only found in some parts of Texas. Throughout the rest of the country, the top speed limit is usually either 80 miles per hour (on the interstates or in western states), or 70 miles per hour (in eastern states). The fastest limit in Hawaii is 60 miles per hour. Urban and smaller roads have lower limits. No matter which state you are driving in, it’s illegal to exceed the speed limit, so be sure to pay close attention to the speed limit signs.

 

Take note of all the USA speed limit sign for your safe travel.

 

Alcohol limits

Driving under the influence of alcohol is illegal in the United States. In most places, the limit is 0.8%. That said, in some states, the limit is lower. The only way to be completely certain that you are safe to get behind the wheel is to avoid consuming any alcohol before you drive your RV hire USA.

 

Seat belts

Federal law requires all vehicles to be equipped with seatbelts, but the rules surrounding seat belt usage are slightly different in each state. In some states, it is a secondary offense to travel without a seatbelt, while in others, it is a primary offense. In addition, some states require all passengers to wear a seatbelt, while other states only require passengers in the front seat to do so. New Hampshire is the only major exception – in this state, neither front-seat passengers nor adult drivers are required to wear seatbelts. Rules may also differ depending on your age, although all states have separate laws for children that require them to be adequately and safely restrained. We highly recommend you wear a seatbelt at all times the vehicle is moving, no matter which state you are in – however, if you would like some clarification around the laws, it’s best to ask your RV hire USA company when you pick up your rental vehicle.

 

Cellphones

Restrictions apply to driving while using a cellphone, although again, these vary from state to state (some see this as a secondary offense, some a primary offense). To be safe, we recommend pulling over in your USA motorhome rental to answer or make any calls, or using a hands-free system.

 

Driving on the right side of the road

If you are used to driving on the left side of the road, then remember to take extra care in the USA; here, everyone drives on the right.

 

Hiring a motorhome or RV in the USA is the best way to explore the country.

 

USA road markings

The centre of the road is marked by yellow lines to separate traffic going in opposite directions. For traffic going in the same direction on multi-lane roads, each lane is marked by broken white lines. Where there are solid white lines (rather than broken), changing lanes is discouraged but not prohibited. Where there are double white lines, changing lanes is strictly prohibited. A similar system is in place for the yellow centre lines. You can overtake by crossing the centre line briefly if the lines are broken. If there is both a broken and a solid yellow line, you can only overtake if the broken yellow line is on your side. If there are two lines and they are both solid, no vehicles are permitted to cross the centre line for overtaking.

 

Intersections 

The give way rules at intersections will depend on which state you are driving your RV rental in, and what type of intersection you are approaching. Below is a general guide to give you an idea of what to expect.

 

Uncontrolled intersections

In most states, ‘priority-to-the-right’ rules apply at uncontrolled intersections, whereby vehicles give precedence to any others approaching from the right. When a road terminates (known as a ‘T intersection’), all vehicles looking to leave that road by turning left or right must give way to straight-through traffic.

 

All-way stops

Unless you’re from Canada or South Africa, you’re probably unfamiliar with all-way stops (also known as four-way stops). As the name suggests, these are intersections with multiple entry points. At these intersections, all approaching traffic must come to a stop. Once this has happened, the vehicles may leave in the order they arrived. If all vehicles appeared to arrive at the same time, then ‘priority-to-the-right’ rules apply. These intersections are clearly marked by hexagonal STOP signs or ALL WAY signs, as well as signs which state the number of entry points.

 

Traffic lights

The USA follows the universal colour code for traffic lights (also known as stoplights). Green means go, red means stop and yellow means you must try to come to a stop if safe. Following the same code, arrows show whether you can or cannot turn. At most red lights, right turns are permitted once you have given way to pedestrians and other vehicles – provided, of course, that there is no signage prohibiting this maneuver (look out for ‘NO RIGHT ON RED TURN’ signs).

 

Follow traffic light signs in the USA to avoid any accidents.

 

Roundabouts

There are not many roundabouts (also known as traffic circles) in the USA. If you do come across one, you must give way to circulating traffic (approaching from the left) before joining.

 

Indicating

The colour of indicator lights (signals) in the USA is either red or amber, depending on the vehicle.

 

The USA Highway System

In the USA, the network of main roads, highways and interstates is referred to as the ‘NHS’ – or the National Highway System.

 

Be extra careful when driving your USA RV rental in Atlanta during winter.

 

Interstates 

Spanning a total length of more than 77,000 kilometres (nearly 50,000 miles), the USA’s interstate system is nearly as complex as its official name: ‘the Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate and Defense Highways’. Marked by red and blue shields, these highways are easily recognisable.
 

The roads that make up the interstate are known as ‘freeways’, and they usually have the highest speed limits within the state. The interstates are accessed via on- and off-ramps, and tolls apply to some sections.
 

The network follows a numbering system. As a general rule, highways which run east to west start with the letter ‘I’ followed by even numbers. Those that run from north to south have odd numbers after the ‘I’. The interstates with an even number are ordered from south to north sequentially, while aAll interstates with an odd number are ordered from west to east.
 

This can be a bit confusing when freeways are long, twisting and appear to be going in different directions! Try to remember that the direction is determined by the ‘overall direction’ of the entire freeway, and you should be able to figure it out.
 

Some interstates feature three digits; this means they are auxiliary highways, such as radial roads or spurs feeding into urban centres. The third number is placed in front of the main interstate number. For example, I-310 is an auxiliary of I-10.
 

As you travel along the freeways in your RV rental USA, you will see ‘mile markers’. This system begins at either the southern or western end. The numbers restart whenever the freeway crosses a southern or western state line.

 

Routes

Before interstate highways, there existed ‘US routes’. There are still a few routes in use throughout the country. Marked with black and white shields, these have their own numbering system (which is similar to that of the interstates). Each route is slightly different – some are freeways, some are tolls, and some are unique altogether. In situations where there are tolls, a toll-free option is always available nearby.

 

Road signs can help you going to your next RV rental USA destination.

 

State highways

The NHS runs throughout the entire USA, but each state also has its own network, made up of ‘state highways’. Connecting towns and cities, these roads vary in quality, as the state highway markers vary in form. Some common markers include state flags, the shape of the state and circular shields.

 

USA Road Signs

It’s important to familiarise yourself with US road signs before heading out on your RV rental USA road trip. Below are some of the most common signs to look out for.

 

Speed limit signs

Most speed limit signs are white and square-shaped with black letters, although these differ slightly from state to state. Another group of signs uses the same design; the ‘regulation of movement’ signs. These signs convey instructions about certain maneuvers, such as ‘DO NOT PASS’ or ‘TRUCKS USE RIGHT LANE’.

 

Regulatory signs

Most regulatory signs are red, white and black, although their shape varies widely. Main signs, such as STOP signs or YIELD (give way) signs are consistent throughout the country, whereas others are different in each state. The STOP sign is hexagonal and the YIELD sign is triangular. Another national sign is the prohibited sign – a circle with a symbol and a red slash through the middle. The symbol indicates a maneuver, and the red slash indicates that the pictured maneuver is prohibited (for example, ‘no right turn’).

 

Watch our for regulatory signs  when driving your motorhomes in the USA.

 

Railroad crossing signs

These white signs in the USA are shaped like a cross and read ‘RAILROAD CROSSING’ on the inside. In some states, these are yellow and circle-shaped with the letters ‘RR’ instead.

 

Warning signs

Most warning signs are shaped like diamonds and yellow and black in colour (unless they are orange, in which case they are road works signs). Their purpose is to alert road users about upcoming hazards or changes, such as turns and bends, adjoining roads, sections of winding road, traffic lights, emergency vehicles, railways, animals, children, merging lanes, pedestrians, divided highways or narrowing roads – just to name a few! These signs are also used to illustrate natural hazards; for example, high winds or icy conditions.

 

Navigational signs

These are the signs to keep an eye on to avoid getting lost while on your RV rental USA trip. They are green and white in colour and feature important navigational information, for example: upcoming exits and distance to nearby destinations. They also highlight popular tourist attractions within the vicinity, as well as airports, railway stations and toll roads. In a select few states, signs may be brown, or blue and white, instead of the common green and white.

 

Toll Roads in the USA

Also known as turnpikes, toll roads are found in some states throughout the US. As expected, toll roads vary throughout the country. Some feature the option for electronic payment, using systems such as ‘E-ZPass’, and some do not. Your USA RV rentals may be equipped with an electronic pass; ask your motorhome hire provider when you pick it up (this pass means you can pay the fee at a later date). One thing all toll roads have in common is the option to pay with cash. You can find out how much each toll road costs by using the toll calculator on ‘The Toll Roads’ website.
 

Avoiding toll roads is such a common occurrence in the US that it has its very own term – ‘shunpiking’. Providing you have the time to take the alternatives, this can save you money (unless you end up spending more on petrol!). What’s more, sometimes shunpiking can take you through interesting towns you wouldn’t have come across otherwise.

 

Parking in the USA

 

Finding a park in small towns or rural areas is usually a breeze; there are plenty of parking lots for RV rentals or roadside spots available for a few coins or free-of-charge. The only thing to be aware of is ‘snow streets’ during the winter months. In heavy snow, you must leave the kerbs clear in certain areas so the snowploughs can get through.
 

In big cities, parking can be a little more difficult. While each city is very different, below are some general guidelines to keep in mind.

 

Coloured kerbs

In some areas, the curbs are painted with lines of different colours, with each colour indicating the type of parking that is allowed or not allowed. Green means you are able to park, as long as you follow any posted time restrictions. Red means no stopping or parking whatsoever. Blue means you are able to park if you have a disability permit. White means the space is reserved as a passenger loading or unloading zone. Yellow means the space is an unloading zone for merchandise vehicles only.

 

Parking signs

These signs are fairly universal throughout the country. ‘NO PARKING’ signs are usually red and white in colour. ‘NO STANDING’ signs are similar and mean you are allowed to stop for a few moments but not allowed to park.

 

Be aware of the No Standing Signs to know where to just stop and not park your US motorhome  rental.

 

In areas where you are allowed to park, check for green and white signs – these contain information about any rules you need to abide by. For example, there may be time restrictions in place or payment required.

 

Paid parking

The two most common options for paid parking are parking meters – self-operated machines on the side of the street which take small change – and paid parking lots, which tend to be inside private garages or buildings and usually accept a variety of payment methods, including cards.
 

It is wise to do research on the available parking areas for your motorhome rental while on an RV holiday in the US.

 

Additional information about driving camper rentals in the USA

Now that you have a better understanding about the US road rules, here are some other tips and tricks to keep you safe and comfortable on your RV hire USA journey.

 

Insurance

The way the civil law system works in the US means vehicle insurance and liability insurance are compulsory. Your motorhome rental USA provider should sort out vehicle insurance (this will simply be added onto your rental charge), however, it’s your responsibility to take out liability coverage. This may be covered by your RV rental provider, although this is not guaranteed, so it’s important to check. You may also be able to add liability insurance to your travel insurance policy.

 

School buses

In the US, vehicles travelling in both directions are legally required to stop and wait if yellow school buses are flashing their red lights. Buses flash these lights when school children are embarking or disembarking, to give them safe passage. The only exception is if you are travelling on a divided highway and you are on the opposite side of the road from the said bus – only then you may continue driving.

Open containers

The US has strict laws surrounding open containers of alcohol in vehicles (i.e. bottles and cans). It is illegal to drive with any open containers, even bottles of spirits which have been re-capped, unless they are in the boot (trunk) and completely inaccessible by the driver as well as all passengers. 

 

Overtaking on the inside

When travelling on multi-lane roads, you are allowed to overtake on the right and the left. Overtaking on the left is the preferred option, but keep an eye out for people overtaking on the right just in case. As you are travelling in a motorhome, it’s likely that many vehicles will try to overtake you, so this is something to be aware of at all times.

 

Information to help you plan your USA motorhome rental journey

 

See below for useful information and links to key websites, all of which will help you plan your RV trip before you hit the road in your campervan hire in the USA.

 

Official visitor websites

Key travel information about each state can be found at the website 50states.com. This resource is hugely helpful in the planning stages of your RV rental USA journey and when you’re on the road.

 

Rest stops and services

The United States is a mammoth country and features some very, very long interstates and highways. You are going to want to park up your campervan rental and make the most of rest stops! On freeways, keep an eye out for blue signs; these will let you know about services, food outlets and accommodation options at nearby exits. You may occasionally see company logos on these signs too; companies can pay to be featured.
 

On tolled highways, the rest stops are allowed to be commercialised, and therefore are very comprehensive. You’ll often find several food outlets, shops and free WiFi at each stop. On non-tolled highways, the rest stops are usually funded by the state government. The facilities here tend to be quite basic; think public toilets, parking and – if you’re lucky – vending machines and information kiosks. 

 

Entrance requirements

The requirements around entering the U.S. will depend on which country you are from. Citizens from several countries are eligible to apply for an ‘ESTA’ visa waiver, which allows them to enter the country for up to 90 days (ESTA stands for Electronic System for Travel Authorisation). ESTA-eligible countries include New Zealand, Australia, the UK, Chile and most of Western Europe. If your country is not on this list, you are required to apply for a nonimmigrant ‘B visa’ instead. 

 

Driving USA camper rentals across borders

Planning to take your USA RV rental across the borders? There are no controls between state borders, however as we outlined above, the road rules will likely be slightly different from one state to the next. Of course, if you are travelling to Mexico or Canada, then you will need to cross controlled, international borders. Please be aware that your RV rental USA company may not allow you to take your motorhome out of the country. Some companies will allow you to travel to Canada, but most prohibit travel into Mexico. Every motorhome rental company is different, so be sure to check your RV hire agreement. If you do decide to cross an international border, make sure you have the appropriate paperwork and visas ready.

Driving USA RV rental in winter

If you’ll be on the road during winter, it’s important to plan ahead and prepare yourself for snow and harsh conditions. There are a few essential items you should travel with in the cold; a bag of kitty litter or sand to add traction to your wheels (in case you get stuck!), warm clothes and extra food. You should also consider renting a 4WD motorhome in the USA. Another thing to be aware of is possible engine freezing. It’s also important to regularly top up your fuel tank – don’t risk travelling near empty!

With Motorhome Republic, finding and booking USA motorhome rentals is a breeze but you still need to find somewhere to park up for the night. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to do that too.

Yes. Were there centaurs too. History is silent about this. It seems that the centaurs cohabited with ordinary women.

She touched my prechendals with her handsand I rubbed against her breasts. Watching porn I stood like a pillar, and Alisher touched my penis, and I touched his small penis. We watched porn called "Mommy 2", and from what I saw I imagined myself with Gulnura, from such excitement, I got up and went to. The smithy, leaving I saw that Alisher was jerking off.

Passing the hall, I saw how Gulya was sucking her ass in all its glory.
