California’s Hidden Gems

Friday, July 19th, 2019

Get outside the glitz, glam and traffic jams of the big cities of California and check out these 5 off the beaten track, naturally beautiful, destinations:

Natural Bridges and Archways in Death Valley National Park

Known as one of the hottest places on the planet, an RV is the perfect way to tour the amazing scenery: air conditioning keeping you cool and your fridge full of cold water. With many points of interest that can be seen from the comfort of your RV, plan to spend a couple days cruising through the park. Up to bracing the intense heat go on a short 15-minute hike to the Natural Bridges and Archways.

Pack your swim suit and jump into the refreshing water filled canyons. With many options for camping, seen here, you may opt to choose one with higher elevation to get cooler temperature at night. A perfect adventure in the RV to take in the scenery with protection from the elements!

Ladder Canyon Trail in Painted Canyon

Ready to get out of the RV and into some adventure? Head to the Ladder Canyon trail, located in the Mecca Hills Wilderness area. This adventurous and challenging hike includes beautiful scenery highlighting the natural diversity of the area. This unique trail requires climbing ladders up dry waterfalls, through slot canyons, gaining views of the vast desert, Salton Sea and the natural colours of the Painted Canyon. Just over 5 miles long, go early in the morning and in the spring to try and beat the heat. Double check road conditions before you go as the road can close due to flash flooding. Get your camera ready and be sure to bring lots of water.

Bristlecone Pine Forest

Located to the east of the Sierra Nevada this forest is home to the oldest trees in the world. Estimated to be over 4500 years old, these trees are the oldest living things in the world. There are two groves: Schulman Grove and the Patriarch Grove, which is home to the largest Bristlecone Pine in the world. Surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery these trees are definitely worth checking out. With an early start visit both groves in one day and camp nearby. Load your RV with water and supplies before heading to this fairly remote destination.

Mammoth Lakes

Situated on the earth’s largest volcanic calderas, in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, granite domes, lava tubes, lakes, and ancient forests make this an outdoor adventure paradise. The scenery is jaw droppingly beautiful and the activities are as mammoth as the mountains surrounding, is too large to list. See the full list here, but make sure to check out the 600 year old earthquake fault, the Devils Postpile, the 101 foot Rainbow falls, craters, an old mine and finish off your day of adventure and sightseeing by having a soak in one of the natural hot springs nearby.

Guadalupe Dunes

The second largest dunes in California at the Rancho Guadalupe Dunes County Park area. The paved access road is perfect in an RV, leading you through the Rancho Guadalupe Dunes Preserve and down to the beach. Take in the scenery and great birding from the comfort of your RV and pop out for a quick swim, or surf. In the 1930’s the silent film “The Ten Commandments” was filmed here to recreate ancient Egypt. Today many of the artifacts from the film have been dug up and are on display at Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Center in Guadalupe. Can’t go to California without a little glitz and glam of Hollywood. With all the comforts of home, enjoy your RV trip beyond Hollywood and the big cities. Discover the rugged beauty and hidden gems of the natural side of California.

San Francisco RV Rental Road Trip

Wednesday, May 29th, 2019

San Francisco is one of those cities that you can just fall in love with and want to return again and again as there is always new and exciting places to go and things to explore. It’s difficult to narrow down but we’ve put together our top RV road trip in the San Fran area that covers a little bit of everything for those of us that can’t decide exactly what we want to do.

San Francisco

Starting the trip in San Francisco gives you the opportunity to bask in the city lights, enjoy some music, see the big sights like Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf, ride a trolley car and check out the Golden Gate Park and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Napa Valley

After dancing the night away in San Fran, head over to Napa Valley and taste the exquisite wine’s of the valley. And the best part is, you won’t have to go far when you’re in need of a nap. If you’re looking to stretch your legs, the golf courses are a fun activity and go great with the local distilleries and craft breweries as well.

Fort Bragg

Once you’ve had your taste of Napa, head down for some real relaxation and check out Glass Beach in Fort Bragg. If you’re up for a history lesson the Sea Glass Museum is a stop not to be missed. And if you’re looking to switch for tasting wine to smelling flowers, the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens are sure to please.

Muir Woods

After all of the relaxation and sight seeing, it’s time to get some exercise. So head out to the Redwoods and stretch your neck to check out some seriously tall trees and immerse yourself in nature for a few days.

Hopefully this has got you California dreaming and itching to take that next road trip.

RV Rental with Unlimited Miles in Los Angeles

Sunday, January 13th, 2019

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.

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. Therefore 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 Los Angeles

Saturday, January 12th, 2019

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. Therefore 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”.

Best Size of RV

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

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. Like their more basic counterparts these camper vans have kitchens, but they 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.

A small compact RV may be the best RV rental for some. However 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.

The Best Large RV Rentals

For some the best RV rentals in Los Angeles may be a large motorhome. Large motorhomes come in two variations. Class C RVs can be as small as 22′ or as large as 36′. Similarly Class A motorhomes can be 36′ or even larger, but to not usually come any smaller than 30′.

Conclusion

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 these RVs 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.

Some of us want to travel in luxury, big motorhomes with lots of room and all the amenities, then there are those of us who want to get off the beaten track and go where no large RV has gone before. For those people there are small RV rentals in San Francisco.

Camper vans are really just small RVs that sleep a couple of people. The benefits of camper vans are that being small they are great on gas, saving you money over a large motorhome.

One Way RV Rentals are an excellent way to see the USA. What better place to start an RV rental than Los Angeles California. One way rentals starting in Los Angeles are not available to every city. There are enough locations that will allow one way rentals that you will have lots of options of where you want to go.

Time and Distance Matters

One mistake that people make when booking a one way RV rental is picking cities too far away. Remember that you do not want to spend your whole holiday driving trying to get to your end city, it’s the journey not the destination that is important. Plan your trip so that you are driving about 4 hours a day. This leaves you lots of time to stop and take a hike or visit a museum or any other number of things you may find to do on your RV rental adventure.

Consider starting your one way RV rental in Los Angeles and dropping it off in Seattle. Driving up the coast of the Pacific Ocean is beautiful any time of year. One way RV rentals from Los Angeles to Denver is another great option. If you are looking for a long weekend trip try renting an RV from Los Angeles to San Francisco or Los Angeles to Las Vegas.
