Minnesota has thousands of lakes, 66 state parks, and eight national parks for you to enjoy — as well as cities and fabulous shopping, including the Mall of America. Perhaps the best way to see Minnesota whenever and wherever you want is by RV. But if the cost of owning an RV or driving it from your home to Minnesota is too much trouble, don’t despair. Just rent an RV when you get to Minnesota!Minnesota has several RV rental agencies, many in Minneapolis or St. Paul, all close to the airport. Other rental agencies are in north- and south-central Minnesota. Some agencies will ferry you from the airport to your RV for a fee; others provide fly-and-drive discounts.The class-C motor home is the popular RV to rent. It can sleep six to nine people, although most only have enough seatbelts for six. The motor home has many of the comforts of home including beds, a toilet and shower, microwave and refrigerator, and heating and cooling. Most Minnesotan RV rental agencies also sell home-keeping kits with linens and dishes, so that you don’t need to bring your own.The peak rental time in Minnesota is between May and September, so expect more demand for RVs and higher prices. In general, you get a cheaper per day price the longer you rent an RV.Before you rent, call rental companies or check out their Web sites to find a pricing system that works for you. Many companies charge a day rate and also by the mile. Other agencies charge a flat day rate. Your car insurance may not cover the RV, so ask the rental agency if you need insurance and how much it costs. Also ask about extra fees like a clean-up fee, late fee, or a security deposit.
