Third time renting from this place and their staff have always been extremely helpful and have made the experience much better. The RV we rented this time around was newer but with some minor issues with the cabinets. Nothing that would prevent us from renting g from here again. Thanks!

El Monte in dallas have been nothing but a great experience. The staff is extremely helpful in explaining the RV and made the process really smooth. The vehicles are brand new and clean. I had to keep changing the contract but they were patient in updating it and helped me navigate the contract with ease. Would definitely recommend and will rent from them again if i'm in the Dallas area.

Lake Tahoe RV Vacation Idea

Day 8
San Francisco to South Lake Tahoe
190 miles - 3 to 4 hrs

You will no doubt want to stop off at California's State Capital, Sacramento, en route to Lake Tahoe and our suggested campground, Historic Camp Richardson Resort & Marina, located on Lake Tahoe's Southwest Shore.  You'll have a great time at this year round resort where miles of sandy beaches await the summer visitor and where everything from Seadoo and power boat rentals, to paddle boat and kayaks are available.  Enjoy relaxing on the long stretch of beach, and enjoy the swimming area.  Still looking for ways to add excitement?  Try the Lake Tahoe Water-ski School, a sailing lesson, or soar 12,000 feet above the water while parasailing!

Day 9 South Lake Tahoe to Yosemite National Park 192 miles - 4 hours

Day 9
South Lake Tahoe to Yosemite National Park
192 miles - 4 hours

Almost 100 miles of today's journey will be on Hwy 395, classified as Historic Highway 395 and so famous they gave it it's own website!  It runs from Reno, Nevada in the north to Victorville, CA in the South.  Start early and be in Yosemite Village, in the heart of this amazing national park, in time for lunch.  There are several National Park campgrounds to choose from, and bookable online at www.recreation.gov.

Day 10 Yosemite to Bishop 134 miles - 3 hours

Day 10
Yosemite to Bishop
134 miles - 3 hours

Travel back along the Tioga Pass to Route 395 and then south to Bishop.  The limitless expanse surrounding Bishop will allow you the chance to find just the adventure you're looking for.  If you are a western buff, you will appreciate the historic murals found throughout Bishop, painted on the sides of buildings, which depict frontier life.  One of Bishop's favorite campsites is Browns, where you have a choice of three campgrounds. 

Day 11 Bishop to Las Vegas 282 miles - 5 hrs 30 min

Day 11
Bishop to Las Vegas
282 miles - 5 hrs 30 min

Just south of Bishop, head east into Nevada.  Pause at the town of Beatty, a picturesque desert town in the Amargosa River Valley, and the Nevada approach to Death Valley National Park, and, if you are travelling outside of the months where motorhomes are not allowed into the park (July & August), this is your opportunity to visit because Beatty is only a half-hour's drive from the valley floor.  Beatty is surrounded by 3 peaks: Bare Mountain, Sawtooth Mountain and Bullfrog Hills.  The town of Amargosa Valley, a small town on the southern Nevada-California border, is flanked by the Funeral Mountains to the west and Yucca Mountain and the Nellis Air Force Range to the east.  Interesting to today's travelers is that ancient campsites, dating back to the last Ice Age at least 10,000 years ago, suggest that an ancient people once inhabited this valley.  We suggest the Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort be your home tonight for fun, Vegas style.

Day 12 Returning Your Motorhome 7 miles - 20 minutes

Day 12
Returning Your Motorhome
7 miles - 20 minutes

If you feel up to an early start, and you haven't visited before, a 1 hour 10 minute round trip will take you to Hoover Dam.  But don't forget, you have to return your vehicle, full of petrol, by 11:00am to the Las Vegas rv rental depot.
