Looking for an easy and efficient RV rental? Then our Escape Pod is the best choice. We won't charge you for daily miles or other fuel fees. :) So others might be a bit cheaper per night BUT calculate your trip charge at 40 - 50 cents / per mile. That's a big saving!
You pay for the diesel, DEF (diesel emission fluid), propane, and other consumables. We have a WI state park sticker, so you don't have to pay entry fees. We include a fully stocked kitchen with prep utensils. Fire starting gear for even wet conditions. Flashlights, lanterns, outdoor entry mat, extension cords, doggie #2 bags, picnic table covering, etc.
It's a class B, so it's easier to drive than a massive rig. It has a king bed, and a passenger bed for the front - great for a kiddo. You can sleep 3 adults, 2 adults and 2 kids (assuming 1 child is in the king bed with you). If you are less than 6 feet the 2nd bed will work for you too.
Back screen & side screen doors for "sleeping under the stars" & airflow. There is also a roof fan to draw air in or pump it out.
Our pod has a toilet, inside & outside shower, galley kitchen, 2 burner stove, instant hot water tap, water-tap purity filter for safe drinking, DVD/TV/Surround, large refrigerator, freezer, convection microwave, inverter for AC devices, and a solar panel to recharge the battery. Backup camera, collision detection system, blindspot warning, front and side curtain airbags, ABS, and efficient diesel "blue tech" engine.
We stock the galley with cooking equipment and dining gear. All you need are clothes, towels, bedding, and your food.
We do allow pets, and after each rental we clean and sanitize the RV. When you rent, we'll have the gray & black tanks empty, and fresh potable water in the 30 gal tank. We purify the water tank for safety.
<<Please NO smoking and no taking the RV off-road onto car paths or areas where it could get stuck or damaged>>
We have a ton of high quality REI camping equipment that you can request.
Kelty dining fly
Fire pit accessories like marshmallow sticks, pudgy pie makers, dutch oven, etc.
State park and county parks are great options to get away. We are new to RVing so haven't yet gone west, but it's on our list.
Other things to note
Before you rent, you must read the guide books we created. I'll also create some videos for you, and you should schedule a 90 min orientation to the RV. I'll walk you through everything so you are comfortable hitting the road. Outdoorsy has a sign-off sheet we need to go through prior to departure.
TIP: From experience when deciding on dates, it might be worth adding an additional day on your front end and back for packing and unpacking and vehicle return.
!!! Pickup & Return time is 12 Noon CST. I get that people often want to hit the road asap. We can try to be flexible but we need time to clean RV for back to back reservations. If you will be much past 12 Noon on a return, we'll need to charge for an extra day.
#1 I don't book the RV back to back renters. So first of all there is at least several days between renters. I need that time to vacuum, wipe down, mop and safety check all the systems.
#2 I sanitize the potable water tank and the lines. The lines get flushed but we do have a multi-stage water filtration system that hooks up to the city water to filter before water enters the RV, AND the drinkable water that come through drinking tap, has a 2nd purification filter.
#3 The products we use for cleaning are 7th Generation brand. We don't use Clorox b/c it can damage the surfaces and my wife has sensitives to many products.
#4 Whenever possible I open up all the doors and air out the RV for hours so that sunlight can hit the surfaces the UV light disinfects as well.
The insurance is required by Outdoorsy. It's part of their platform and policy, and I have no control over that. That's not something I can negotiate with you.
Again, pets okay, no smoking, no Burning Man, no Coachella type events.
