we did a one-way rental via Cruise America back in 2007 - one of these in fact - http://www.cruiseamerica.com/rent/ou...andard_rv.aspx. It's a Ford based unit and was pretty gutless compared to European motorhomes, but it did what was needed.

We picked it up in Atlanta and dropped it off in Orlando via various places in Florida

the upside for us was that during the period between paying the deposit and getting it refunded 2 weeks later the $/£ exchange rate had moved a fair bit so even allowing for currency charges, got more back than we paid out!!

and the Lord said unto John "come forth and receive eternal life". but John came fifth and won a toaster........

Hi Charlievan,

I would think carefully about the distance you would be travelling. With only 2 to 3 weeks you would have little chance to look around as you go. Just travelling around Florida would take up your time. It might be better as others have intimated to use air or rail to get there and then do a tour.

We spent 3 months in florida over the winter and hired a villa (bungalow) which was great, but the distances we had to travel to travel to other parts was amazing.

Have a great time.

Gary.

It's tempting, hiring looks real expensive for that long.
This is a good site similar to our Autotrader but for RV`s

The RV will be very good option for the trip. We have also experienced the same trip and affordable price. When you are Traveling with family, then RV is more comfortable. Yes ,for very long distance it may be costly .we really enjoyed it.

campervan usa

we did Florida 2years ago did the booking with campervan uk in Plymouth could not get it any cheaper by direct we have used this firm 6 times in aus n/z has some one says make sure you book your sites maybe 10 month's in advance you get the snow birds down they are only allowed 3-4 weeks per stay so they go round in a circle for 6months and private sites are very expensive in Florida parking is the hardest part kenny

How to select the superior motor homes? I have some points in selecting the RV from dealer - vintage vehicles, check up of the motor home, size registration & insurance. These points are mention on the blog livingrvlifestyle Are there any more points to consider to select the right type of RV?
