Delivery RV Process

For delivery, owners have the option to choose specific locations for delivery of the RV, like a nearby airport or popular campsite, or a custom location such as the renter’s home. This means the RV can either be delivered to the final destination, meaning no driving for the renter, or the owner can meet the renter somewhere along the renter’s journey.

Visiting and Hosting Relatives

Whether it’s the holiday season or time for mid-summer parties and large family gatherings, sometimes we don’t have the accommodations to stay all together at home – or, let’s be honest, maybe we don’t want our loved ones crashing on the living room couch.


Let’s not forget RVs are homes on wheels and can make a perfect solution for visiting or hosting friends and relatives. Simply have an RV delivered and set up in your driveway or search for nearby stationary rentals.

Work Being Done on Your Home

There are plenty of situations in which we simply cannot stay in our homes, but that doesn’t mean we have to go far… Having an RV delivered is the perfect way to stay at home without, well, exactly being in your house. So the next time you’re remodeling, dealing with leaks or flooding, or taking care of pests, check out deliverable RVs in your area.

Other Accommodations Booked Up

Picture this: you have the perfect destination to visit or event to attend but other accommodations are booked up when you want to go. Enter stationary rentals – you can still enjoy your bucket list trip without worry! 


Stationary rentals aren’t driven, so it’s kind of like you’ll still be in a hotel but better – more privacy and a quieter atmosphere while still being close to where you want to be.

Will I Need to Drive the RV If I Have It Delivered?

It depends on where it’s being delivered to. Let’s say the RV is delivered to the airport when you arrive; you would then continue driving to your final destination. But if you need it delivered to a final destination, like your home or a campsite, there are options available.
