Most travelers have heard of Redwood National Park, as it is the home of the tallest trees on earth. But the parks are also a sanctuary to vast prairies, wild riverways, oak woodlands and almost 40 miles of beautiful coastline. Every one of these locations plays host to a rich variety of wildlife, as well as cultural traditions. The National Park Service and California State Parks work together to oversee these riches for not only the enjoyment, but also the inspiration and education of all…Continue

One of the beautiful things about hitting the open road in your Cruise America rental RV is that you are not limited to anything but your imagination.

River’s Edge RV Park in Fairbanks, Alaska

There are several ways to camp with a motorhome. Traditionally, most travelers choose to set up camp in an established RV park. Finding one of these has never been very difficult, as they generously dot the entire nation. As a matter of fact, where you find a popular attraction, you are sure to find RV camping facilities. Some of the parks charge a very reasonable fee, and some are a bit more expensive, depending on the location and the “amenity factor.”
In 2010, RVers Kim and Don…Continue

There are those who claim that it’s just as comfortable for them to camp in a tent at an RV park than camp in an RV. Anyone who says this has obviously never camped in an RV!
Let’s take a minute and consider some of the differences between outdoor “tent camping” and camping in a motorhome. It really takes a special breed to be able to camp in a tent and be comfortable at the same time! In this day and age, the modern rental RVs (like you’ll find at Cruise America) are just like small…Continue

One of the greatest advantages to traveling in an RV is that you often find yourself in quiet, serene places far from the hustle and bustle of the city. From the beauty of the plush landscape and green foliage, to the crystal blue waterways that dot our nation, traveling in an RV places you on the 50-yardline of nature’s splendor.
Just because the sun goes down over your campsite—rendering the landscape invisible—doesn’t mean that the beauty has to end. Being far from the lights of…Continue

I wanted to send a note to tell you how impressed I was with your company and my Cruise America experience. From Sabrina Pietroricca who I dealt with on the phone for my reservation to Crandall Payne at your Las Vegas location, your entire team was very pleasant and helpful throughout the entire process.
This was the first time I've ever rented a RV and things went well. The motorhome was in great shape, clean and ready for me when I showed up. While the office was VERY busy, I can…

There is just something about rolling down the open highway on a family vacation that makes a traveler want to snack. It's easy to stop at the store and load up on junk food, and isn't it funny how the "junkier" the food is, the better is seems to taste? That's because it's loaded with the three flavor makers: salt, sugar and fat. Things like potato chips, candy bars and donuts are the normal snacks for the road for many folks, but that can be a real physical downer. With just a little…Continue

Just got back from my trip to Glacier and Banff parks. Two trips back and forth between US and Canada by car and one by air. A couple of observations:
On the car trips, custom agents didn't pay much attention to the dog. I was only asked for vet paperwork once, out of four border crossings.
On air trips, custom agents paid more attention.
-On trip into Canada, the custom agent said my crate/carry bag was too small. Dog needs to be able to stand up in it. I'm…

We’ve got the bug. After our test drive of the RV lifestyle, we knew that we were ready to embrace the open road with open arms for more adventure. Renting an RV isn’t cost effective and doesn’t allow for any modifications we’d like to make for conservation and convenience. Clearly the only choice is to purchase a motorhome.
But which class of motorhome would we want to make our home on the road?…

There is nothing more enjoyable than climbing aboard your Cruise America RV and hitting the open road. It's the lack of a tight schedule, the fresh air on the beach or in the mountains and the complete absence of stress that really makes traveling in a motorhome fun.
However, if you allow it, there could be a downside to it all. When you travel long distances, it involves a lot of sitting. In addition, we don't always make the wisest eating choices when we are on the move. The good…Continue

There are all kinds of fun activities to be had while traveling in a Cruise America rental RV. One of the things we overlook sometimes is the magic that can happen in the kitchen. There is just something about enjoying a meal that was cooked in the mountains; maybe it's the view of the countryside or the smell of the fresh air that makes it taste just that much better.
At Cruise America, we have a whole slew of recipe suggestions to offer. Here is one of our favorites:

At Cruise America, we can get your rental RV all ready for you to travel, but it's up to you to pack the things you want to take along. Especially when it comes to packing for the kitchen. While we do have some items that you might find useful to rent (such as pots, pans and silverware), the majority of items will need to come from you.
Our rental class C motorhomes are very comfortable, but no matter how much space there is in an RV, there always seems to be a need for more. This is…Continue

There is no better way to discover the beauty and wonder of this big blue marble we live on than to explore it in an RV.

That’s what Cruise America is all about … affording folks the opportunity to experience RV travel for themselves, even if they don't…Continue
