Explore the United States Safely

The experts agree that camping is the safest way to travel this year. Traveling the United States in a self-contained RV is a low-risk activity. An RV allows you to keep your distance, avoid shared facilities, and poorly ventilated restrooms. Rent an RV to have the freedom to travel, escape the city, and do so in a fashion that adheres to the social distancing guidelines. For more inspiration check out this article on Social Distancing in an RV.

One of the best things about traveling with an RV is that you can bring everything. There is no 50-pound limit with high fees if you want to bring an extra suitcase. So, pack the hammock, your favorite pillows and blankets, cast-iron skillet, your coffee grinder, all the sunscreen and skincare products, and lots of towels, you get what I am saying. Pack an entire wardrobe and bring all the creature comforts you desire.

Don’t forget all the outdoor adventure gear. And, while you are at it throw the canoe and kayaks on the top and bikes on the back. Now you are set to travel local and explore your State.

No Hotels

Renting an RV to explore the United States is the convenience of renting a hotel on wheels. This means there is no stress trying to find a hotel, get to a specific destination, or follow an itinerary. Don’t worry about lugging your suitcases upstairs into your hotel room, or constantly unpacking and repacking. There is no concern about keeping your distance in common areas or worrying about the cleanliness of a rented room. Just load all your items into the RV and get comfy in your epic vacation home on wheels.

Your vacation home on wheels goes where you go. When you get too hot in the midday sun take a nap right at your destination and get back to the adventure as soon as you’re ready. I mean napping is part of the vacation treat! A mobile home base means you can have a bbq lunch wherever you’re parked. At the end of a big day, lounge with friends and family where you are, cook dinner in nature, and don’t worry about hitting the highway to your overnight destination.


Once the RV is rented you can make your vacation as affordable as you desire. Park for free beside your new favorite lake or rent a site in a campground.

Preparing your Burner Friendly RV Rental

Whether you are looking to rent a Burner friendly RV or you have your own, the last thing that you want to do after an amazing festival experience is spend hours and hours cleaning your RV. The Playa dust gets absolutely everywhere! So we’ve put together some tips to keep your RV clean. Okay, maybe not clean but cleaner.

Become one with the dirt
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! So do plan to do a big deep clean afterward. The hardest places to clean – plastic and rubber surfaces.

Cover all vent openings
Either cut up some cheap AC filters, use bandanas, or anything to cover over the internal and external vents. Pay close attention to behind the fridge and any openings to the circuitry.

Tape over switches and seams
Tape up your external switches and seams (windows, poor sealings, etc). This helps keep electronics from locking up. Just imagine not being able to retract your awning during a dust storm! Any switches that you won’t be using regularly near doors and windows, tape them up too.

Protect upholstery
Cover up any soft surfaces with extra sheets or scrap fabric. This not only protects the upholstery but when the dust becomes too much you can shake them out.

Wax on
Give your RV (inside and out) a good solid wax before heading out to Black Rock City. It does help the dust blow over instead of sticking right away.

Close it up
If you’re leaving your camp, close everything up – windows, vent fans, doors and retract your awning. Wind and dust storms kick up out of nowhere and the last thing you want is to arrive back at your camp with your awning blown away.

Minimize openings
This may go without saying but don’t leave your door open and try to limit the number of times you enter and exit your RV. Some people construct a ‘dust room’ at the entrance to help block the dust and allow for a space to take of dusty clothing and shoes before entering. Baby wipes are great near the door for a little clean up before entering.

Give your flooring some help
Help with the post-playa cleanup by buying sheets of painters plastic and tape them to the floor of the RV.

Tape tips
Make sure to keep tape only on the plastic trim or vinyl floor of the RV. Tape can sometimes remove the finishing from the veneer. Painters tape is great but can sometimes fall off halfway through.
