We are thinking about taking an extended trip this summer (OK...dreaming for now!) heading west from Minnesota toward Colorado, down to New Mexico to stay for a week (DH's family has a cabin there), then across the south to Florida then back up to Minnesota. We have driven to the cabin in NM about 6 times in our minivan but thought we'd like to mix it up this summer and try to rent an RV. I grew up traveling in an RV most summers from MN to FL so I am really excited about this! Have you ever rented an RV? We're thinking we might be able to find a private rental since the economy isn't great right now. Maybe find someone who would just like to make one of their payments by renting? What do you think? Any thoughts would be appreciated!
