anyone interested in taking over my RV rental the second weekend? I’m in Monday - Thursday, you take it Thursday - Sunday and return it to the rental location. I was thinking Vegas. Anyone done anything like this before? Interested in trying?

Oooh! I’m interested. But you have to promise me the grey and black water tanks will be totally full, all fresh water gone, and the whole thing trashed with dust and garbage. I want to make sure “my half” of the week is spent wallowing in your filth, before I get to detail clean the damn thing and return it with all the damage you caused. Sounds like a great deal!!

You’re looking at this wrong. You can’t pick up an RV without being the one who puts down the deposit. I say take it and if the tanks aren’t empty, with a full tank of fresh water and not a single speck of playa on the interior it is fair game to do exactly the same. Then of course use wet wipes both internally and externally to wipe every square inch of the RV while forgetting to close the windows and doors all week. Drop it off in Vegas with a smile. Easy peasy.

Hello Ferrante, welcome to eplaya. We are a group of experienced burners who have had everything go wrong so we may make recommendations based on that.

Personally I would not go for half the week, especially the first half only. This is especially true for virgins, you are missing much more than half the experience.

Tickets are easily resellable if you would like the full week virgin experience in a future year.

In all honesty, for a 3-night stay early in the week, it’s allot easier to just pack some socks, a backpacking tent, then fly in on BxB-air from Reno with a collapsible 5 gallon jug for the water plan and some dry rations.

You’ll save a mountain of money, won’t waste a day in/out on gate road, and will have a jolly time.

All for the price of shitting in a porta-potty as the only inconvenience.

Thank me later.

This is the single worst BM logistics idea I’ve ever heard.

I am with Ratty.

What could possibly go wrong with this plan. It seems logical and you already have all the bases covered.

I say go for it. It sounds like a great deal for all concerned.

To the OP - there are some long RV tip threads worth a read. Keep in touch on ePlaya and we are interested in hearing how things went.

Sometimes you have to step back and let the law of natural selection work. We can't save them all.

Quick update for all the trolls/interested parties... this plan could not have worked out better. I wish my burn wasn’t so short but I successfully handed off a clean, pumped, filled RV. The other folks upgraded from a tent for the second weekend/breakdown and we even got our deposit back. Some of you should have more faith in humanity.

It's not a lack of faith, it's from hearing too many experiences that went wrong is so many ways.

Thanks for the update

Good for the positive statistics

Usually only failures get reported

There is nothings to tell if nothing goes wrong

That doesn’t alter my faith in humanity, it was a very unlikely outcome.
Sometimes you get lucky.
I’d still never do it.
