    I have a ressie for Alamo in December for a Mid size SUV. What other SUV's do they offer than the Ford Escape? I will be bringing a walker or a handicapped scooter and am looking for a SUV with the widest area in back. I am use to having a Toyota Rav4 and they are ideal for my needs.

    So does anyone remember what other SUV's Alamo offers?

    Jeep Patriot, Jeep Liberty, toyota Rav 4, to name a few. If you don't see what you want, ask, if it is available they will get it for you.

    I just called Alamo at MCO and asked what mid-sized SUVs they MIGHT have available at the garage. The operator said they DO NOT carry the Toyota RAV4. However, they might have the Ford Escape, KIA Sportage, Nissan Rogue, Jeep Compass, Jeep Patriot, and Jeep Liberty available.

    I was sorry to hear that they don't have the Toyota Rav 4 as I have rented this car many times and know it fits my walker/scooter needs perfectly. So now I am going to have to research the cargo space of the other SUVs mentioned to see what their dimensions are in the cargo hold.

    Has anyone had any experience with these SUVs as far as putting an electric scooter in the back?

    After having read how Alamo/National/Enterprise trade cars, this SUV is very possible. The Chevy Captiva was the replacement SUV that we got from Enterprise after the first car died on the first day with a bad battery. We loved the Chevy Captiva and it had plenty of room for my handicapped equipment.

    They most definitely have Rav4's. You spoke with someone who NEVER goes into the garage, I worked 5 days a week for months in that garage, both sides and I do have a pretty good idea what is there.

    They don't trade cars, they share cars. I believe the Captiva is a midsize crossover, not a midsize SUV.

    I really hope they have a Toyota RAV4. It was my ideal car.

    Sorry about using "trade" I should have used "share." I really don't know the difference between a crossover and an SUV. I just figured it was an SUV since it looked like one.

    You an always ask and no problem about "trade" vs "share", I have just learned to be very very specific about info here. To be honest, I don't really know the diff. between a SUV and Crossover, with the exception of the really big SUVs, they all look the same to me. :confused3 With the 2013 models coming in now, you never know what they will have and what they may have shipped out for sale, so, as I said, ask if you don't see something that fits your needs. :)

    We got a Dodge Nitro from Alamo last year. I took it because it was a little weird looking, lol.

    Sort of looks like the Chevy HHR. Nitro's are compact SUVs.
