Top Tips for RVing at the Burner Festival 2019

Now one of North America’s largest festivals, burningman.org’s pop up community is on many people’s bucket list and fast becomes an annual tradition. Hosted in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada there are some challenges for first time Burners. We’ve put together out top tips to make RVing in a Burner Friendly RV rental smooth sailing.

Planning is key. Make sure you plan everything from how you’ll cook your meals, how to prepare your rig and everything in between for a smooth experience. Check out our post on How to Prepare your RV for the Burner Festival for the best pro tips.

Tip 2: It will be dusty. Don’t get overwhelmed.

The playa dust leaves a film behind that is difficult to break. A vinegar solution helps but no matter how many precautions you take the dust gets everywhere! Understand that the desert is full of dust and plan for it. Protect your mouth and nose and seal up your RV.

Tip 3: Bring a lot of water and conserve the water you bring.

The only water available at the festival is the water you bring. So be sure to prepare. Take very short showers, consider wet wipes and dry shampoo. And remember what you pack in you have to pack out. Check out our tips on what to bring with you to the Burner Festival to make life easier and conservation a breeze.

Tip 4: Protect your RV’s interior as much as possible.

With the heat it’s hard not to open up the windows to get more air flow. But the dust truly does get everywhere. Consider wrapping your bed and bringing extra sheets and clothes in sealed bags or containers. There will be something so wonderful about fresh sheets and clothes at the end of the trip that isn’t covered in dust. Wear comfortable sandals and leave them outside, although be sure to weigh them down so they do not blow away. Wondering what you should know before you go? Check out our top tips to making the Burner Festival the best experience yet.

RV Rental Festival Notes:

Please note when booking an RV, choose the Reno (Burning Man) location and choose dates 1-2 days before and after the Burning of the Man festival, August 25 – Sept 2, 2019.

Most RV rental locations will be closed Sunday August 26 and September 4, 2018 so make sure you plan your rental around that as you will not be able to leave your RV at the rental depot while the depot is closed.

So what is the difference between a Class A, Class B and Class C RV?

If you have been searching for an RV rental you may be overwhelmed by all the choices out there. Do you want a motorhome or an RV? What is a camper van? Is it the same as a camper? What is the difference between a Class A, Class B and a Class C RV? Is there a difference between a motor coach, a caravan, a Winnebago and a recreational vehicle? Let’s see if we can clear some of this up.

So a motorhome, RV, motor coach, caravan and recreational vehicle are all the same thing. A Winnebago is a brand name of a company that sells motorhomes. When people use the term camper van they are referring to a Class B motorhome. Class B motorhomes come in two styles, basic and luxury. Both basic and luxury usually sleep 2 people but can have seatbelts for more. The basic camper van doesn’t have a toilet or shower while the luxury Class B has both. The basic camper has a kitchen accessible from the outside, while the luxury camper van has a kitchen you can access from the inside. A Class C RV can come in a large range of sizes, as small as 19′ and as large as 35′. A Class C motorhome is characterized by having a large bed over the driving area, allowing the capacity to sleep more people. A Class A RV are the large bus style motorhomes that have the flat front. While Class A RVs tend to be longer than Class C RVs, Class A RVs sleep less people are there is no large bed over the drivers area.

Travel Washington Hot Springs Guide in an RV Rental

Travel Washington Hot Springs Guide in an RV Rental

Why not take advantage of the low RV rental prices in the fall and winter and take the opportunity to visit the Hot Springs in Washington. Hot Springs are one of my favorite things. No one is ever in a rush, everyone is relaxed with no place to go. The healing powers of hot springs have been used for thousands of years. Hot springs boost circulation, reduce stress, promote sleep, reduce pain and heal common skin ailments. Rent an RV and go on a road trip and stay at each of these hot springs or plant roots and spend your trip at only one.

  • Olympic Hot Springs is a 5 miles round trip hike, so this is a good trip to do with the family. The path is wide and a gentle slope to the hot tubs. These are natural tubs, no man made pools here. Pick a trail and find the pool that is perfect for you. The pools range from 85-105 degrees. Be forewarned that nudity is common, if you are uncomfortable just move to another pool.

  • Goldmyer Hot Springs is a hidden gem in the Northwest, located about 3 hour drive from Seattle. For this spring you will need a high clearance vehicle as the road can be a little rough.

  • Doe Bay Hot Springs is located on Orca Island and has a beautiful view of the bay while soaking is the man made hot springs.

RV Rentals with Unlimited Miles in Los Angeles

If you are looking for an RV rental with unlimited miles in Los Angeles we are here to help. RV rentals with unlimited miles are not going to be an easy thing to find. Most good RV rental companies do not want someone to rent an RV for 5 or 6 days and drive across the country in it. This puts excess miles and lots of wear and tear on the RV. So the first question to ask is “do I really need unlimited miles?” Most rentals (but not all) include some mileage in the nightly rate and additional mileage packages are available for purchase. Map out your trip. How many miles are you planning on driving? Remember that you do not want to spend your whole vacation sitting in an RV, leave lots of time for exploring the area around Los Angeles and wherever else you are driving. Usually an RV rental companies will require a minimum of 14 nights rental before they will offer you the option of purchasing unlimited miles. If you are planning a 14 night rental you will need to be driving at least 2300 miles to make this option worth your money. If you still want to look at an RV rental with unlimited miles in Los Angeles, go to the quote program and look for RVs with EMI or EMW in the description and you will be able to find the unlimited mileage option.

Best RV Rental in Los Angeles

As you scour the internet looking for an RV rental for next years summer vacation, you are probably wondering, what is the best RV rental in Los Angeles? The thing is that there is no one answer to that question. RV rental needs are different for everyone, so no one RV rental in Los Angeles is going to be the best RV rental. Let’s look at the things that could make an RV rental be the “best”.

Size of RV is important for many people when trying to find the best RV rental in Los Angeles. Many people are looking to rent small camper vans or RV’s, Los Angeles has lots of choices if this is what you are looking for. Small camper vans usually fall into 2 categories, basic and luxury. Basic camper vans have seating that folds into a bed and a cooking area that can be accessed only from the back door of the vehicle. These camper vans tend to have a cheaper nightly rate. The luxury camper vans are the Road Trek and the Mercedes of camper van rentals. These camper vans have kitchens that are inside the camper and bathrooms with showers. Both the basic and the luxury camper vans usually have seating for up to five people but may only have sleeping for two. While a small compact RV is the best RV rental for some, other people think that the bigger the better makes for the best RV rental in Los Angeles. If you are one of those people the best RV rental in Los Angeles is a 39′ Class A motorhome rental with 3 slide outs.

RV rental pricing makes for the best RV rental in Los Angeles for many people. Los Angeles has lots of RV’s to choose from many of them with low enough nightly rental prices to accommodate any budget. In order to get the best RV rental pricing there are a few things to keep in mind. Booking early usually gets you the best RV rental pricing. My experience tells me that there are no last minute booking deals, the early booker gets the worm (or deal as the case my be). If you can travel in the shoulder season you will get a lower RV rental price from Los Angeles.

While the best RV rental from Los Angeles may be in the eye of the beholder, you will always find what you are looking for when you book your RV rental through USA RV Rentals.
