How much does it cost to use the generator?
We allow one hour per rental night of generator usage.  There will be a $4.50 per hour charge based on the digital generator meter located on the panel above the fridge.  We offer unlimited generator hour packages.

When is pick up and drop off?
Pick-ups are scheduled between 12:30 pm and 9:00 pm and may be the day before your rental begins (At no charge) if the vehicle is NOT rented. They’re scheduled this way because we may not be available during the day of pickup. We need the time to make sure each unit is prepped and cleaned for the next customer. The pick-up and drop off days are not billed as two separate days but as one day.

How many free miles are included with a rental?
We allow 125 free miles per day. That equals 875 for a week.  You will be charged 45 cents per mile after the allotted miles have been exceeded.

Do you rent for longer than a week?
Yes, we prorate the weekly rate for the amount of days you’re looking for.  The weekly rate of $1,700 / 7 = $243 per day.  So for example, a 10 day rental would be $1,700 + (3 x $243) = $2,429.  A week + rental requires an additional fee of $200 for the dumping of black and gray tanks and refill of the propane tank.

Do you rent for less than a week?
Our three day rental is $1,175 + $150 for dump of tanks and propane for a total of $1,325. We do NOT have daily rentals.

How is insurance handled?
We provide you with MBA RV Renters Insurance while driving the motorhome.  This covers the driver for up to one million dollars in liability.  This insurance carries a $1,000 deductible per incident which is the main reason why we require a $1,000 security deposit.  If you would like additional coverage, consult with your existing insurance provider and ask for a ‘Binder’ for the duration of your trip.  Most drivers in NY are already covered.  Some insurance companies require information from us to provide you with a rider policy for the duration of your rental.

Do I need a special license to drive a Motorhome?
Some class “A” and “B” motor homes depending on their weight do require a special license.  Our Class C Sunseekers and the Allegro do not require any special licensing.  If you are comfortable driving a truck or minivan you will be fine driving either Sunseeker.  Both units includes a 7″ rear view backup camera.  The side mirrors are part powered with the lower part designed for seeing who is on either side of the RV when on the road. If you are unsure if you will be able to drive the unit, schedule an appointment in advance to take a look at take it for a drive.  We also welcome any renter who has provided a deposit to schedule time to drive the unit before your departure to become more familiar with the RV.
