Editors Review

Offering self-contained motorhomes along with some rental perks like free airport shuttle, free generator use, and unlimited miles, Alaska Family Motorhomes is one of the reputable family-owned businesses in Anchorage.

What Alaska Family Motorhomes Tells Us

As a family RV rental who has been in the industry for quite a while now, Alaska Family Motorhomes is known to provide friendlier, more personalized customer service. Conveniently located on the Seward highway, the company goes the extra mile to personally pick you up at the airport with no additional charge. Unlike bigger companies run by corporations, this locally-owned business even allows optional late night pick-up just to cater every renter.  To top it all, every rental enjoys the perks of free generator use, unlimited miles and a list of thoughtful extras. However, they only have one depot. 


The fleet of Alaska Family Motorhomes consists of fully self-contained motorhomes that are seemly for small to large groups. For couples or starting families, the suitable choices are the 22.5 ft Fourwinds and Itasca Spirit, which are also the smallest options on set, and for bigger groups, there are 30 ft. motorhomes— Forest River Sunseeker, Four Winds Majestic and Four Winds 5000. As fully self-contained vehicles, each unit supplies you with almost everything, from kitchenware to cleaning supplies and entertainment system. But there are things that aren't included in the rental (that you wish should also be free of charge) like pillows, sheets, sleeping bags, comforters and towels. 


Gulfstream Independence

Starting the fully self-contained vehicles is the 8-berth Gulfstream Independence. At 28 ft., the motorhome provides comfortable sleeping places— rear queen bedroom, overhead bunk beds, convertible dinette, and foldout couch. It is equipped with useful facilities like fridge, stove top, microwave, hot water heater and a lot more, but some of the unique inclusions that would really save you money are the folding chairs, cleaning supplies, cutlery & crockery, which are normally at an added cost if from other companies. There are even plenty of storage cabinets inside and even spacious lockable bins outside. 

Forest River Sunseeker 

Slightly smaller, the 26 ft. Sunseeker can only sleep up to 6. Because of the smaller dimension, there isn't a fold-out couch but rather a swivel chair for day use. The back queen-sized bed, as well as the dinette and overhead bunk bed can comfortably sleep two each. The windows for this particular motorhomes aren't very large so it might not be the best option if you want some panoramic views during your trip. But if you love this model but travelling with a larger squad, don't worry because this one also comes in another variant— a bigger Sunseeker at 30 ft. With a bigger size, there's much room for 8 people. 

Four Winds Majestic

With extra large windows, the Four Winds Majestic is the perfect choice for those in need of sweeping sightseeing. Aside from this unique feature, the L-shaped kitchen near the convertible dinette saves space. Actually, there are two options for this model with the same size and layout, but different VIN number. But take note, this one features a pretty old Ford Chassis so might as well manage your expectations. 

Four Winds Majestic Flyer

The Four Winds Majestic Flyer is one of the biggest units on fleet at 30 ft. However, this vehicle is much older with a 1998 model. The exterior itself could tell the age of the vehicle though. Still, it is reliable on the open roads as it comes with all the essentials needed in a motorhome like toilet & shower, dinette, kitchen and more sleeping spaces up to 8 people. 

Four Winds 5000

Another on the same category are the Four Winds 5000 at 22.5 ft and 30 ft. These motorhomes are quite newer model; hence, wear and tear issues may not be very visible. There aren't much difference with the two except the added sleeping area— the smaller one doesn't have a rear queen-sized bed so the back becomes the place for the shower and toilet. 

Four Winds Chateau

Last in the Four Winds type is the Chateau with a length of 29 ft. A 1999 model that can sleep up to 8, this one is smaller compared to other 8-berth motorhomes that are normally at 30 ft. However, the sleeping arrangement is the same and all inclusions are intact. There are lots of overhead cabinets inside, as well exterior lockable storage, and a space saving L-shaped kitchen.

Itasca Spirit

One of the two smallest vehicles of the company, the 22.5 ft Itasca Spirit is fitting for smaller families. Though sleeping up to 6, this may cramped up a bit because of the limited space. So as to save space, this motorhome does not come with a back bedroom but only provides convertible dinette, sofa sleeper and overhead bunk bed.


Alaska Family Motorhomes gives you two options for the insurance: either you provide a written binder from your own auto insurance company or get a quote from them. For a small fee, the company's insurance coverage already includes comprehensive, collision and liability of $500 deductible. You may also purchase optional travel insurance from their partner like family emergency, medical expenses and natural disaster.


Alaska Family Motorhomes is definitely on the right track. Their reputation as a rental company is bright and commendable. As a family-owned local business, expect for more friendly vibes and more personalized rentals. The fleet of mostly older units may be a slight disappointment but they have really step up in giving a reputable service, which makes them a standout among many competitors in the market. They have lots of options to select from, as well as perks to fully attract prospect renters. 


With a lot of choices on hand and friendlier service, Alaska Family Motorhomes is a very nice option for families in need of an Alaskan road adventure.
