Sorry, but it's making me nervous.

Yeah, I meant '.

ETA, I know the difference, and yet I've done it twice.  Now, can someone fix it, please?

seems like cruise America large rv's have 9 belts . 4 by the dinette , 3 on the sofa, and 2 upfront.

I haven't been able to find an RV rental for 8, in the North East (E.g. for a trip to NH)

Cruise America's site indicates 7 people is the maximum for any rental. Are they flexible about that with kids? (Those are ~$180-$200/day plus $0.35/mile, depending on pick-up location in CT, MA)

I'd prefer to rent from a company than a private owner because the vehicles are relatively new, offer roadside assistance/support, they are probably more reliable cleaning their vehicles (re COVID).

I checked out outdoorsy and the private owners with well priced newer vehicles (that sleep eight) and had relatively good reviews are mostly booked up through the summer already.

Any tips/suggestions would be appreciated.

I've done a trip in one with more than 7, but if you are worried, just don't have all 8 people at the pick up
Arguing on DDF is like getting arrested, everything you say can and will be used against you, so just remain silent!!

I'm also getting stuck finding the right rv for the right price. Not ready to spend $5000 for 3 weeks. Was hoping for $1000 /week all in
Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.

I was hoping to do a 3-week RV trip this summer, was researching costs (pre-COVID-19), and it was definitely over $5000, even though I was willing to take a small RV.  The area I was interested in was quite expensive, especially when compared to the US Southwest, which might have the cheapest RV rentals in the country.  So, it depends 1) how big (how many seatbelt/sleeping positions) you'll need 2) where you're planning to rent 3) when you book---some places offer discounts the closer you get to the date if they still have availability 4) when you rent (if it's their off-season)

Also, remember to factor in the cost of campgrounds, some as high as $60/night.

Considering that just about everyone in the country seems to be wanting to take an RV trip this summer, good luck with that...
