The prices vary according to each rental company, but generally it costs $150 for kitchen supplies, and $50 per person for linens. And if you are planning to go to the National Parks or anywhere need a generator, the rental company offers you the generator rental for $3 per hour.

RV campervans offer comfort for your travelling members. But sometimes, some of the members need a moment alone, away from the others. You may have this alone moment while you are travelling in summer, but consider if the rain is coming. All members have to gather together inside the campervan, so there is less privacy. Not to mention other issues, such as the sounds and smells. All members have to discuss about it.
