About Sahara RV Center
Same business, same location for over 25 years, Sahara RV Center is quite popular in Las Vegas when it comes to RV rentals. However, the popularity is somehow diverse as positive and negative reviews define this family-operated company. The rental department has a couple of motorhomes on fleet, consisting of Class A and Class C, as well as travel trailers, tent trailers, and toy haulers, which are the only selection of towables in the area. They are generally pet-friendly but some units do not allow pet so check with them first if you're planning to bring one.
Their rental fleet is massive and the choices are very alluring. They have motorhomes, travel trailers and toy haulers for rents. Their motorhome fleet in particular is consist of Class A, B and C units that are equipped with facilities but come completely bare in terms of linens and the like. Though the motorhomes feature an outside awning, you need to pay a whopping amount of $4,000 to be able to use it! Most of the Class C and few Class A RV can be allowed to travel for the Burning Man. The vehicles vary in height, some are small while some are very huge that can sleep up to 10 people.
Welcoming the Class C fleet is the 6 berth Jamboree Searcher. At 25', this motorhome features a slide-out to offer extended interior comfort. Its size could be a problem to passengers looking for great vehicle length. Because of its compact interior space, sleeping places are practically designed at the cab-over bed, transformable dinette and rear cornered bed. There's an L-shaped kitchen, just inches away from the open bedroom. For outdoor dining or entertainment, make use of the huge awning.
The Freelander model has actually the most number of units on fleet— 4 options in different sizes. Starting with the smallest, the 25' vehicle is surprisingly suitable for up to 8 people, with sleeping areas at the rear bunks, sofa sleeper, convertible dinette and cab-over. However, this is the only model that does not have an oven or an awning. Moving on, the 26' Freelander is more spacious because it caters up to 6 people only and features a private bedroom with step-up at the back area. Last selection for the Freelanders are the 29' units, sleeping up to 8 persons. These motorhomes feature the most common layout for a family RV— a nice kitchen, a comfortable living area, luton bunks, and a private rear bedroom.
The 26' Freedom Express is another option for the 6 berth category. This motorhome offers almost the same layout with the Jamboree Searcher— well-equipped kitchen on one side, extendable dinette with a fitted slide-out on the other lane and a not-so private bedroom at the back. The two just differ with the bathroom as this one has separate shower and toilet located before the rear double bed.
There are two Sunseeker options: one at 31' and the other at 32'. These motorhomes are pretty huge for all 8 people, so it's definitely a treat for those in need of space for walking around or doing their daily exercise inside the cabin. Both have slide-outs, but the bigger model features not just one, but two slide-outs— one located at the living quarters and the other at bedroom area. The bathroom for this model also comes with separate shower and toilet. If you're looking for ultimate indoor fun, especially for your kids, then the 32' is the answer, with a beautiful entertainment set fitted at the cab-over bed.
Featuring an interior layout same as the 32' Sunseeker, the 31' Conquest makes a great alternative for touring families with kids. This 8 berth motorhome provides three cab-over area options— a spacious bunk, a full set entertainment system or TV with twin beds. The last option, of course, is the best, especially if you do not want to compromise both sleeping and entertainment features.
The largest and the grandest motorhome by Sahara RV Center is the 39' Class A Thor Outlaw. Driving this huge motorhome has its fair share of thumbs up and thumbs down. Of course, this big RV gives exceptional road views, panoramic sights, very spacious interiors and a sleeping capacity of up to 8 to 10 people. However, parking could be a problem.
One of the largest motorhomes at 35', the Georgetown provides sleeping places for up to 8 people. Because of the 3 slide-outs fitted on the living room, kitchen and bedroom, the unit exudes more comfort than the usual RVs. The sofa sleeper comes with a footrest to relax your sore joints from driving and you can comfortably stroll inside the cabin because of the extended width. The rear bedroom has a nice TV set and wardrobe.
The only Class B motorhome is this 14' deluxe Mercedes Sprinter that caters 2 to 3 people. This sleek and classy RV is not suitable for some off-road tracks; hence, it's not allowed for the annual Burning Man. Even with the restricted space, a bathroom with shower and toilet is included as well as an elegant kitchen with stainless sink and 2 burner gas hob.
If you can provide an insurance binder from your own insurance company, then you can save extra dollars. But if you can't, then you may avail of the required collision damage waiver at an additional of $18.00 per day, with a $2,500 deductible. Aside from that, you need to pay a refundable damage deposit ranging from $1,000.00 to $1500.00.
Setting aside the unfavorable feedback, the company creates a comparison table as to why you should rent from them and not from other competitors around. First, the rental comes with free 500 miles for 3 days and free 1, 000 miles for 7 days. Second, there is an unlimited generator usage. Third, minimal preparation fee. Lastly, no mandatory extra fees. These features may be very engaging, not to mention the extensive years of service, but a handful of criticisms seem to overpower their reputation. Though older models show a little wear and tear, some renters noted problems about mechanical issues, unpleasant customer service and inaccurate charges.
Certain features like extensive rental experience, free miles and generator use give Sahara RV Center an edge among other competitors. Renting a unit from them can give you a nice deal of savings, but always rent caution, especially that their reputation isn't that steady.
