If you really want to enjoy the great state of Georgia and the city of Atlanta then the only way to do it is to rent an RV. Georgia has so much to offer. You have mountains in the North and a beautiful coast in the east. The best way to really enjoy the splendor is to rent an RV or camper trailer and go exploring. You even have some good rivers to go white water rafting in. You also have a lot of Civil War battle fields that if you are into history are fascinating to go and see.
Atlanta is a major city in the USA. It is home to one of the most busy airports in the United States so flight to and from are usually pretty reasonable. It is also home many professional and college sports teams. Athens which is home to the University of Georgia is just a hop skip and jump away and Georgia Tech is located right in Atlanta. They both have a bunch of collegiate sports teams but what’s really big is football and the best way to tailgate is in an RV and if you don’t own one then you’re going to have to rent.
You have a few options for renting an RV in Atlanta Georgia:
- Peer To Peer
- Cruise America
- Speciality Rental Place
Peer To Peer
This one is my by far my favorite and in my opinion the best way to rent an RV or camper trailer right now. Basically what happens is you have an owner that wants to rent out their RV to make a few extra bucks and they don’t trust craigslist and then you have someone that wants to rent an RV and they also don’t trust Craigslist. So what you have is two companies or websites that specialize in connecting the two parties and they take care of all the payments, insurance and paperwork for you and it’s 100% legit. It’s basically AirBnb but for RVs. You have two main players and they are RVShare and Outdoorsy. I only have experience with RVShare and I had an awesome experience wit them. Read my full story about RVShare here. I have heard great things about Outdoorsy and if I were you I would not hesitate to check them out also. Only thing I have to warn you about is that you are dealing with people and sometimes they will not return your requests or e-mails when you want to rent their unit. So do not wait till the last minute to rent your RV.
This is another legit way to rent an RV. This would have to be my second favorite way to rent behind peer to peer. I have used them in the past before RVShare or Outdoorsy were even around and I had a really good experience. They do tend to be a little bit more expensive but you are renting through a very reputable company that takes care of their RVs and if something happens they take care of you. You have to be careful because they will charge you a lot of you go over the allotted miles or if you use extras such as propane and pot & pans. As long as you plan accordingly you will be just fine.
I have never rented from a dealership but it makes sense why they would rent RVs. Not every dealership rents RVs so you will have to do some research and see which dealerships will rents out RVs. They do tend to be a little bit pricey but you are getting an RV that is getting maintained at the dealership that is hopefully trustworthy. Make sure you do your research and find out if they have a good reputation. From what I have seen most are good and you should have a good experience..
Speciality Rental Place
This is another option that is not available everywhere. I have not used this option ever but have done extensive research and have seen that not every place has this option. I have also discovered that prices range from being really expensive to really reasonable. You will have to do your research and make sure they are priced right and that they have a good reputation. Check out and see what type of reviews they have and if the are all negative run. Either way use your best judgment when you go this way.
All the options I have listed above are great ways to rent an RV in Atlanta Georgia. My favorite is the peer to peer but the others are fine also. Have fun and be safe on your adventure in Georgia.
