Budget RV Rentals is a nice catch for those in tight budget as they provide you with very competitive rental rates for their mid-ranged to entry RVs. This locally-owned family business focuses on cheaper and older RV rentals with free 100 miles per trip.

For added comfort, they offer storage of personal cars at their place for a small fee and may even allow your furry pets inside some units.
Started in 2010 with their personal unit, Budget RV rentals has now more than 25 motorhomes on fleet.

Despite the notable variances, most are older units with unadorned exteriors. Further, it comes with free awning and few perks like cleaning chemicals and toiletries, and 100 free miles per trip. This will save you a couple of dollars, considering that RVs with awnings are quite pricier.

There are several Sunseeker models on fleet, ranging from 24' to 30'. These RVs are equipped with kitchen, dining table, couch, rear bedroom, bathroom with shower and toilet.

The 30' RV comes with 2 slide-outs for an expanded living room and bedroom, while the 29' features a larger overhead clearance for added comfort. The 24', on the other hand, may be the smallest option but it still provides large storage area for your stuff.
With one slide out, this Coachmen Leprechaun is very spacious and convenient. Despite being one of the largest motorhomes on selection, the unit is still very easy and smooth to drive at 30'.

For your storage, there are lots of overhead cabinets and drawers scattered inside.

The Fleetwood Tioga is another model on fleet that has many options. For the sizes, there are two options― the 26' and 29'. The smaller RV can sleep 5 to 6 while the bigger one can extend up to 8 people. The interior layout is likely the same with the other Fleetwood model, the Jamboree, with the convertible dinette and sofa sleeper positioned neighboring to each other. It also features an L-shaped kitchen that saves space in the living area. The rear bedroom provides overhead storage, full length mirror and window blinds.

In general, Budget RV Rentals keeps you in track with your budget, but just make sure to rent in caution— inspect the vehicle thoroughly beforehand and take note of the mileage (only 100 free miles per trip) and generator use. Most of their motorhomes are older models that may have some wear and tear issues, though religiously maintained and serviced by the company. Since these are fairly priced service, do not expect for a flawless rental because you might be disappointed. Still, this small family business is a good rental company.
