I've heard that as well - but I wonder how much of it was the result of trying to run RV Rental with a U-Haul
mindset. The people I've run into at U-Haul
have been overworked and definitely wouldn't have had time to fully explain how to use the equipment in a camper.
Not saying the clientele wern't responsible as well. Look at what happened to Hertz when they rented Shelby Mustangs in the 60's!
I can see how renting motorhomes could be fraught with peril...way too many moving parts in that deal and I, too, have heard horror stories from people who bought a new rig and put it into the rental pool.
There are, though, numerous RV rental companies in Metro Denver...most have been around a long time. You can rent pop-ups from at least 4 different sources. They wouldn't be doing it if it was such a nightmare. I believe they've figured out how to do it right.
