    RV Rental Recommendations

    Hi all. Thank you for letting me be a part of the forums. First post here and I'll keep it simple:

    Last trip to A/V was 2016 but we didn't camp. This year we are planning on renting an RV and a full hookup camp site at Camp Scholler. I have looked at a few RV rental options and found some that even deliver and set up the unit. This would be my preferred method. I am hoping that you all can give me some good companies to look at, any to stay away from, etc...And any other helpful bits of information you've learned from your experience camping in the past would be a huge appreciation. Any kinds of info that you wished someone had told you when you first began camping at A/V... Thanks everyone! Can't wait for July to get here!

    We're using Kunes Country RV https://www.kunescountryrvelkhorn.co...&iwsReferrerQS Can't speak to if they are good or bad as this will be our first time renting an RV (previously we tent camped in Scholler and the past 5 years in HBC).

    Not sure about this, but I seem to remember reading something about companys setting up campers/RV's for renters was not allowed. They can't come on site unless they have ticket. To be on the safe side, I would check with someone at the EAA.

    My mother rents from Van Boxtel in Green Bay. And yes, they do deliver it and set it up.

    I believe the Scholler sites with hookups do not have sewer connections. Also, the hookup sites require you to pay the nightly rate from the moment you claim a spot. Potentially a lot of money there. I know rates vary, but I have friends who’ve paid over $1500 for a week of rv rental.

    Outside companies have been setting up units in the campground for years, unless this has changed in the past year or so.

    Thanks everyone, We found and secured a 40' Newmar RV and the company routinely sets up and picks up the unit after the show ends...Can't wait for the camping sites to open up so we can secure a spot...Anyone know what date we can begin securing camp sites?

    If I read the website right, June 26th, at least for online reservations but IIRC the campgrounds open the same day

    Hey, thanks for the info...I thought that was the date but wasnt 100% sure. Any idea on how fast electric/water sites last in years past? Do i need to be sitting at my computer right when they go on sale to get a spot?
