Top Tips for RVing at the Burner Festival 2019

Sunday, February 10th, 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.

Tip 1: Prepare your RV before you arrive at the Burner Festival

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.

Cheap RV Rental in Reno Nevada

Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

Getting a cheap RV rental in Reno Nevada may not be as difficult as you might think.

There are a few things to consider when you are looking to get a cheap RV rental in Reno. The first thing is the time of year. Reno Nevada is the closest location to the very popular the Burner Festival. The Burner Festival is a temporary city erected in the middle of the Black Rock Desert. There is no entertainment booked, whatever happens here is totally up to the participants. The Burner Festival takes place the last part of August and the first part of September. RV rental rates are at a premium, the highest rates that you will see all year. So to get a cheap RV rental in Reno you will need to avoid these 10 days of the year.

There is usually a discount when you pre-book miles. So spend some time and map out your route, add in the side trips that you may be taking. Do not book extra miles just because you get them for cheaper as pre-booked miles are usually not refundable.

Always compare prices to make sure you are getting the cheapest deal on your RV rental. USA RV Rental makes shopping around easy. We have put all the best RV rental dealers all in one place, so you can just visit one easy quote program and know that you are getting a great quality RV for the cheapest price.  USA RV Rental, the best way to get a cheap RV rental in Reno Nevada.

Preparing your Burner Friendly RV Rental

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017

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 afterwards. 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 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 no where 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 amount 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 half way through.
