Renting an RV in Miami can be a difficult process. Miami is one of the most expensive and well known cities in Florida. Miami is home to many celebrities and well known people. So of course that makes things really expensive and they constantly have nice weather so people from up North that have money usually find there way to Miami.
Miami is also home to a lot of well known professional and college sports teams. There is always something going on. Plus some really nice and expensive night clubs reside there. Finding a place to stay that is affordable can be quite difficult if you do not now what you are doing.
It is also a great place to fly into if you want to visit and experience the Keys. Granted Key West has an airport of its own but that flight can be expensive. Plus it is really fun to drive on the long bridges that connect the keys. It’s an experience that everyone should experience at least once in their life time.
A really great adventure is to rent an RV in Miami and drive all the way to Key West. You have so many beautiful places to stop along the way to stay and see.
You have a few options for renting an RV in Miami:
- Cruise America
This is what I would recommend. It is a part of the peer to peer rental category that is taking off just like Airbnb. Basically you go to their website you put in the area that you plan on going to and then you choose the RV or trailer that you wan to rent. It’s really simple and easy. Read my full review of it here. But I will admit that they are not perfect so don’t rent one that is 30 years old and looks sketchy. Please plan ahead and don’t try and book one at the last minute because sometimes it takes the owners a while to get back to you. Otherwise this is a great way to travel at a reasonable price.
I have used Cruise America before and I had a good experience. But you will be a traveling billboard for them. If you don’t know what I am talking about then google what the RV’s look like. You are also limited as to where you can pick up and drop off but you are getting a reliable RV that will run well. It’s not a bad way to go but be sure you know what you are getting into before you rent. Read all the fine print because if you go over the alloted miles they then start to charge a lot.
Reting from a dealership is not a bad way to go also. The only problem is that not every RV dealership rents out RV’s. So you are going to have to look hard to find one that looks like it is a trustworthy one to rent from. One of the downsides is that they tend to be a little bit more expensive especially during peak times and they usually only have a limited number to rent out and you get what you get. If you happen to find a great dealership that does a great job then it would be worth it. But it may take some trial and error to find the right one.
Overall you have a few viable options if you want to rent an RV in Miami. I prefer going the RVShare route but you won’t be disapointed if you decide to go the other routes I suggested
