I will apologize right at the get so as some of my questions might be very vague. This is our first time renting an RV and there are so many unknowns.
Duration: 15 days
The most important question that I need answer to: INSURANCE?
My current auto insurance doesn't cover RV Rental. Their RV policy won't cover RV rental either. The rental company is charging me an arm and leg for good coverage. Are there any reasonable alternatives to buying it from rental company?
We are planning to rent an RV in Chicago and drive to Seattle in May/June. We got a good deal on a rental so we booked it without doing much planning. We are renting a large 2020 Class C motorhome (not sure of the exact model). Any suggestions or recommendations on how to plan a cross country trip? I am used to plan road trips in a car with camping/motel stops but I am not sure what resources to use to look for good RV stops. What should I look for in a camp ground that is specific to an RV? Also, are there any resources for looking at best practices for a long RV trip? We are renting a generator. We are planning to bring our own linens and kitchen utensils. We will be flying one way from Seattle to NYC and do the one-way return trip. What are some of the obvious things to carry for a long RV trip? Any general advice for first timers?
We are not too keen on visiting or driving through cities. We surely want to visit Yellowstone and Glacier NP. If it makes sense, we would also like to visit Badlands NP. I am not sure about rest of the trip. Once I do more research, I will probably post another post asking for suggestions regarding recommended routes, stops, and sight seeing places. But feel free to drop any advice or suggestion.
Thank you for your time.
