KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

We are very thrilled you are renting with Road Adventures! We have compiled a list of things to "know before you go" to help your trip go as smoothly as possible! Please note that we ask for between an hour to an hour and a half of your time during pick up. After we complete paperwork, you will be taken outside and given a complete walk through of the travel trailer or RV you rented. The last thing we ask for is for a photograph of you before you hit the road for our gallery page!

TRAVEL TRAILER

Please read below for information regarding travel trailer rentals. If you are renting a Drivable RV, please scroll down until you see the Drivable RV section!

HITCHING

REGULAR HITCH

If you are renting our nuCamp T@G, nuCamp T@B, nuCamp 400, Winnebago Drop, Winnebago Micro Minnie, or 19 ft. Airstream, you have the option of using your own hitch for the rental.

EQUALIZER HITCH

If you are renting our Gulfstream Innsbruck, Gulfstream Amerilite, Winnebago Minnie 2455BHS, Winnebago 2500RL, or 25 ft. Airstream, we require you rent our Equalizer hitch.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

Our Equalizer hitch takes 40% of the weight of the trailer off of your tow vehicle. It also helps reduce sway as you are traveling down the road. We require our renters to rent our Equalizer hitch for our trailers that are over 20 feet in length (listed above). 

WHAT'S THE PRICE?

You can rent a regular hitch from us for $10, or an Equalizer hitch from us for $50 (one flat fee for the entire duration of your trip). 

WHAT DO I NEED ON MY TOW VEHICLE?

You need a 2 inch receiver (square receiver for the hitch itself- not the hitch ball) on the back of your tow vehicle for the hitch to fit into. Your vehicle also has to be wired for the trailer cord to plug into- see below for more information.

ELECTRICAL WIRING

Your vehicle must have a plug for our trailer cord to connect to. This plug is called either a 4 way plug or a 7 way plug. See below to read about the differences.

4 WAY PLUG

A 4 way plug will only allow the trailer lights and turn signals to operate. They will NOT draw enough power to operate the trailer brakes.* 

7 WAY PLUG

A 7 way plug will operate the trailer lights, turn signals, and trailer brakes. 

*Please note that the only time we allow our renters to have solely a 4 way plug is if you are renting our nuCamp T@G or nuCamp T@B. This is because you do not need to have trailer brakes on these trailers because they are under 2000 lbs.

IMPORTANT!!

It is crucial you have your 4 or 7 way plug tested to ensure it has a proper 12 volt source prior to arriving to pick up your trailer. It is a quick, simple process to test your plug- just take it to your nearest automotive shop. You can also stop by our location to have it tested; if you do so, please call us first so we know you are coming! 

Please note that just because you have towed a Uhaul trailer or a boat, does not mean your 7 way plug can power the trailer brakes. It takes 12 volts to operate trailer brakes, which is more than it takes to operate just lights and turn signals.

TRAILER BRAKES

You can skip over this section if you are renting our nuCamp T@G or nuCamp T@B, as there are no trailer brakes on those trailers. However, if you are renting any other travel trailer, it is important to note that you have 2 options when it comes to operating the trailer brakes. You can: 1. Use your vehicle's built in trailer braking system or 2. Use our handheld wireless brake controller (offered free of charge) Please know if your vehicle has a built in trailer braking system prior to your arrival to pick up your trailer. If your vehicle does not have this feature- no worries! Our wireless brake controller is very user friendly! We will explain how to use it prior to you leaving our lot. Please remember to return our brake controller after your trip is complete by locking it inside the trailer you rented!

DRIVABLE RV

Please read below for information regarding Drivable RV rentals.

GAS MILEAGE

The most frequent question we get asked when it comes to RV rentals is what the gas mileage's are. The answer depends on numerous things, such as how fast you are traveling, the terrain you are traveling on, and how much weight you are carrying. Our rule of thumb is to expect gas mileage in the low teens. If you are staying at a campground that has access to water, we always suggest filling up your water tank once you arrive at your destination to avoid carrying the extra weight (to help with gas mileage).

GENERATOR

Your Drivable RV will come with a built in generator (with the exception of our Mercedes Midwest Sprinter Van- it does not have one). We do not charge for generator usage. Please keep in mind the generator is considered a luxury feature and is not a necessity for the functionality of the RV. The generator may cease functionality if there is a drastic change in altitudes. Every RV comes equipped with a 30 amp power cord that, if plugged into a 30 amp service, can fully operate the RV as well. The generator will run off the fuel in the gas tank. The generator will shut off if your fuel level drops below 1/4 full so as to not leave you stranded.
