I have a double BOB. I googled the trunk with a double BOB and reviews I managed to find said it would fit if collapsed and the wheels were taken off. I have a CRV and it just fits in sideways with the wheels on.

I may have to try and do a bit more research but am worried that since my ME tags haven't arrived I don't know how I can send my luggage to the resort if I don't have them.

Dollar rates have dropped!

These are for my dates (with taxes and extra days comes to $211 for me, oct 31-nov 10).
  • $99 weekly rate for a mid-size
  • $114 weekly rate for a mid-size SUV
  • $204 weekly rate for a mini-van

And that is without a city special! (Not available for my dates...changes almost daily if its there or not. Doesn't beat my $195 from early September, but this is the first time it has come close!

WOW!!! I'm kinda going crazy over here!

Got a standard size car at Alamo for $200 for 11 days!!
Oct 31 - Nov 10

ID # SUNPROMO and coupon AD2335FDC.

Edit: Just realized that SUNPROMO cannot combine with coupons when looking at other dates. But it is showing up confirmed on my reservation confirmation.

That's a great rate. I have the same dates 31st-10th but it won't take the sunpromo with a coupon I got a standard for $213.37. Hoping this is a new trend of dropping rates!

Dollar code OCVB is better than the city rate I had for 11/2-11/7. Give it a try.

Dollar is WAAAYYY down this morning.......got a mid-size from 10/31 to 11/11 for $198. I've never used Dollar before, so any help is greatly appreciated!!!

I booked a back-up Alamo reservation since I use them every trip.....got the same mid-size with the SUMPROMO coupon for $243.00 for the same dates.

Hoping Alamo continues to drop since I am familiar with them, and prefer to use them. Any help/insight on Dollar in case I have to use them? Can you pick your car like Alamo??

How are you getting these rates - my dates are 10/3 - 10/7 (4 days ) mid size car. I am getting a price of 185$ from both advantage and dollar. What do I need to do to get the price down?

I think you mean 11/3, right? LOL.

I used 4PMVM and oi1054 for the codes at Dollar......just literally got these rates about 1/2 hour ago, so check again this morning.

I used SUMPROMO for Alamo, and I think that is the only code/coupon you can use to get this deal.
