RV rental or swap San Francisco area - help

Post by LinziJB » Tue May 15, 2012 3:56 pm

We are coming over from London having been lucky enough to get 2 tickets to this year's burn and have been trying to find an RV to hire, the only ones I can find are really large and expensive. We are 2 non smokers in our early fifties who have a camper (british RV) of our own & who know how to drive & look after a vehicle. I have been to the burn before and am aware of what's required to maintain & keep a van clean. Is there anyone out there who might rent us a camper or who might want to do a rent / swap for a 2 bedroom house just outside London for 2 weeks any dates that they want.

If you don't find a rental in SF to take over from someone else (it's difficult at this stage, in SF, Reno or Vegas) you might try another city like Sacramento, CA, or even camping in a box truck. There's a Budget Rental on Gentry Way in Reno, NV that has box trucks. They're Burner-friendly if you clean it nicely.

Good luck with the RV thing, regardless.

If the RV route doesn't pan out for you, the suggestion of a box truck may. I like to use a cargo van. It fits all I need and is mostly easy to clean. Just a thought.
