If you are planning a long distance holiday or camping trip with a family you may find that a standard SUV does not have the required room or equipment needed to make the trip pleasurable and stress free. Large van rentals exist exactly for this type of situation and with weekly or monthly rentals available why not investigate this option? A late model custom van rental can even double as a camping or sleeping alternative to save on accommodation costs. You can also rent vans with built in kitchen facilities that allow you to save on meal expenses also.
Late model vans house all the latest technology such as GPS mapping systems, pull down DVD Theaters, Bluetooth audio technology for mp3 players, and dual atmosphere controls for air conditioning and heating in front and rear. XM Satellite radio is usually included with customized large van rentals, so you don’t have to worry about reception when camping or holidaying in remote areas. An on board computer displays the fuel consumption, warning lights detailing engine problems and suggested preventative maintenance alerts so that you are not caught unaware.
Some sleeper van rentals will have an aftermarket roof extension installed for more room in the interior. This enables the traveling family to have more storage and entertainment options as the extra room created allows for a big screen TV to be installed. Game consoles are often a feature that come with any entertainment center and will entertain young and old on a long trip. Some vans even have captain’s chairs in the back that will rotate toward each other and include a portable table for meals.
Another cost saving option is to request a van with a diesel pusher motor, as these often get double the miles per gallon. You may even be able to hire an extended length van with a secondary fuel tank for those long drives across the desert in western states. This allows you more freedom as you can travel longer distances without stopping for gas. As you can see large van rentals may just be the solution for your next family driving holiday.
