Renting an RV from a Company vs. Peer to Peer


Have you started traveling the country by RV? New to the experience? Let El Monte RV give you the low down. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans have realized you can work from just about anywhere and it’s pretty cool to see our beautiful country from an RV or motorhome rental. This has led to an increase in RV traveling, camping, working remotely, and RV sharing. Additionally, there are a few different ways to get your hands on a fully equipped RV - either you can rent directly from a company or rent through RV sharing, also known as peer to peer rentals. Both options are great to try out RV travel before committing financially to your own RV. 



RV & Motorhome Rental from a Company


Renting an RV from a company definitely has its advantages, particularly when dealing with security and accountability. When renting from El Monte RV, you can always expect the following:


  • Knowledgeable and friendly staff at every El Monte RV location

  • Locations nationwide with flexible operating hours, including Sundays

  • One-way pick up and drop offs if you’re traveling from A to B

  • Accommodating and knowledgeable staff at our Call Center who can help you while on the road

  • Motorhome rental instructions and a comprehensive vehicle walk-thru with every reservation

  • Toll free roadside support while traveling

  • A wide variety of RVs, campers, and motorhomes to fit your traveling needs

  • An included generator with all motorhome rentals

  • Convenience kits with all the necessary bedroom and kitchen items 

  • GPS navigation systems available

  • Multi-point safety inspection after every rental

  • Full and comprehensive cleaning using professional grade products after every rental

  • Easy and convenient online reservations 


El Monte RV makes your first RV trip easy. Not only will our staff help you at every step of the reservation phase and get you acquainted with the RV itself, we will also be there for you if anything comes up while on the road. This type of security and transparency is key when going out on your first RV trip. 


Peer to Peer RV Rental


On the other hand, RV sharing through peer to peer RV rentals could also be a great option. Peer to peer RV rentals involve an RV owner renting out their personal motorhome to others for short or long-term trips. With this option, you can roughly expect the following benefits (depending on the RV owner, of course):


  • Dealing with one individual for the entire process, the RV owner

  • A larger price range - from very inexpensive RVs to luxury motorhomes

  • Extra amenities can be included to make your trip more comfortable because after all you are basically renting someone else’s home

  • Individual owners can often give more flexibility if your trip dates have changed and you’d like to extend your travel plans


Depending on what you are looking for, an RV sharing site might be more your style. Both renting from a company and peer to peer RV rentals come with different advantages, the choice is truly yours!
