After my parents saw my 13 compact jr, they have decided they would like to rent a 16footer of some sort to travel up the east coast from florida in late sep. early oct. can anyone point us to company or individual that may want to rent one for a 2 or 3 week period. any help would be welcome. They had a huge 40 foot monaco diesel pusher and it was just to much work . they still love to camp , and after going with us on a trip would really like to try a FGRV! they just want to rent to start with .

This is the only place I've heard of that rents molded fiberglass trailers:

UHaul had the only viable, national long term rental program due to their trailers being engineered like tanks to withstand the abuses of the majority of rental customers. Unfortunately, their experience lost money which drove them out of the RV business after only 2 years. It really speaks volumes that a national rental business can come close to bankruptcy by renting out lightweight travel trailers.

Several small regional start-up companies tried their hand at it... and did not survive.
Link to previous topic about rentals

Right now Deb & Chuck's reference seems to be the only Fiberglass Trailer Rental company in business at this time. They're in Toronto, Ontario, Canada... Escape has rented trailers, But they're in Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada...not much help to your folks in Florida.

If your folks are Retired Military, or Retired Federal Civil Service, they may inquire at nearby military base "Morale, Welfare, and Recreation" departments. Many of those places have small travel trailers for rent, and some use Scamps or Casitas in their rental fleets.

Would you loan out your egg? or rent it?

I'd try posting on Craigslist.com in the locale of interest. I agree it's going to be private party.

Regards,

Matt
