At the time of vehicle pickup, the renter should secure the $1,000 deposit in the form a credit card, though they also accept cash deposits. There aren't liability options, but considering that the amount is not very big compared to other rental companies, it may be agreeable. The daily rental rates already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Vacation Interruption Protection (VIP). However, CDW does not cover overhead, undercarriage and back up damage, which will be shouldered by the renter.
McRent, of course, is well known all over Europe, and slowly starting to capture the NZ and USA market. But instead of bringing their fleet to the USA, the company opted to sublease vehicles from a new yet promising RV rental company. This move has its fair share of advantages and disadvantages, but as a whole, the company is on the positive side considering the good reputation of the original supplier.
Offering an extensive range of motorhomes from a reputable company in US is certainly a plus factor. You have lots of choices on hand, and the rates are quite attractive. So, you can take a look at their rental fleet and see what suits you.
