Great to see all those press passes and tags behind Brooke. Don’t we all have collections of those.

National Forests are a great option. Often quieter, as beautiful and easier to get a spot in than some national parks.

Securing a site is usually an issue, people in the know book many months in advance. How is this handled?
Christine Loomis

One of my favorite benefits I learned 28 years ago on my first (of many) RV trips: You can camp in the wilderness and also have ice cream.
Chez Chesak
39:41
Exactly!

LOL Christine!

Approximately what percentage of RV renters hitch a car to it?
Carol Guttery

I'd love tips on how to get a good mobile/internet signal. In many state and national park areas, cell signals are scarce

Kodachrome Basin is a great state park near Bryce
Jody Halsted
40:55
I can answer that Carol - during the Q&A

How long does it usually take newbies to do all the hook-ups?

outdoorsy.com for private rentals. It's like an RV AirBnB. As for finding sites - What about Harvest Hosts, where agricultural sites like farms and wineries offer RV sites. Have any of the panel experienced this? What are the pit-falls?
Chez Chesak
42:47
We’ll do Q&A at the end and will try to hit all your questions then, thanks!

On a more practical note, the most important tip I ever received was to have a dedicated pair of “dump” gloves. Yes, sometimes dumping the black water isn’t quite as neat as you might like.
Jody Halsted
43:53
We rent our RV with RVshare and Outdoorsy - RVshare is 99.9% of our rentals.With Harvest Hosts you are usually boondocking (no electric/ water), so you need to plan ahead to be sure you have what you need.

Also very true. Disposable gloves come in handy for that too - but are wasteful of course.
Jody Halsted
44:21
We keep disposable gloves in our bathroom- supplied for renters.

We have Google Fi and Google Fi phones which have been amazing during travel to getting signals - whether wifi or cell and act as mobile hotspots...

I learned the hard way: remember to put the antenna down in the morning before leaving the campground, and definitely before driving under a low tree branch.

With class c (over cab style) - are people able to be in the RV while it is being driven?
Tom and Lois Adkinson
01:00:09
Does one’s regular automobile liability coverage normally stay in effect while driving a rental RV?
Jody Halsted
01:02:13
Elio - in a motorhome (drivable RV) people ride in them. In a towable RV people can not ride in them while moving.
Jody Halsted
01:04:10
Tom & Lois - no, your regular auto insurance does not cover RV rental. Your rental company can help you get insurance.

We nicknamed our VW camper The Snail in honor of all self-contained slow-moving creatures. Traveled through Europe and North Africa.

Excellent seminar. Thanks everyone. We’ve crossed the USA and the western parks in RV rentals for years, including a 3-month stint when my daughter and I biked across the USA 10 years ago, and I still learned a lot today! Thanks again. Will be in touch.
