RV Rentals Chicago, Illinois

We are first and foremost an RV Sales and Rental dealership. Our entire rental fleet is made up of newer vehicles that are meticulously maintained and cleaned. Every unit is thoroughly cleaned after every rental and again before it goes out. Every bed is sanitized with a hospital disinfectant to insure our customers are sleeping on a clean bed.

Our rental fleet consists of motorhomes, travel trailers, fifth wheel trailers and tent campers. Read on for a definition of each style and type of recreational vehicle we offer for rent.

Class C Motorhome - These vehicles are sometimes referred to as "cabover" styled motorhomes. They are built on a heavy duty van type chassis and have both a drivers and passengers door on the cab. Generally speaking, this style of unit will sleep more people because of the additional bed over the cab. Many people perceive this type of RV as easier to drive because of the lower profile.

Class A Motorhome - These vehicles resemble a bus in appearance but are not as large. These units generally offer considerably more storage space below the floor level. They are sometimes referred to as "basement models". Both the Class C and Class A motorhomes offer all the same conveniences and operate on regular unleaded fuel.

Class A Diesel Pusher Motorhomes - These motorhomes also have the appearance of a small bus but are powered by a diesel engine located in the rear of the vehicle. They operate on diesel fuel only. Because the engine is at the rear of the vehicle, they are generally quieter while driving since all engine noise is behind you. As a rule, diesel pusher motorhomes have nicer flooring, counter tops and seating covers.

Fifth Wheel Trailers - These recreational vehicles are pulled by your tow truck. The vehicle must be equipped with a fifth wheel hitch that is mounted in the bed of truck. These can't be towed with any type of bumper hitch. These units are, more often than not, the preferred rental unit for long term renters and are delivered and picked up by us at their site. These units have more of a residential feel to them because of the multiple levels and the amount of separation between the living area and the bedroom.

Travel Trailers - These are sometimes referred to as "bumper pull" trailers. They range in size from 17' to 34'. The units we have in rental are considered lightweight trailers therefore making them easier to tow and allowing our renters to get a larger trailer with less weight. We offer both Hybrid and full hard sided trailers for rent. The Hybrid trailers have fixed sidewalls and a fixed roof with one or more "pop outs" that usually house additional beds. The "pop outs" are usually a canvas type material much like a tent fabric. The hard sided travel trailers have fixed walls and roof all the way around.

Tent Campers - These trailers are sometimes referred to as "pop up campers" or "tent trailers". They are all one and the same. These units are very lightweight and can be towed with small vehicles. They are very low profile when towing but afford you a lot of space when "popped up". They are air conditioned and provide a lot of comfort for the money. They generally take less than 10 minutes to set up once you reach your destination.

Chicago is located in northeastern Illinois at the southwestern tip of Lake Michigan. It sits on the continental divide at the site of the Chicago Portage, connecting the Mississippi River and the Great Lakes watersheds. The city lies beside Lake Michigan, and two rivers — the Chicago River in downtown and the Calumet River in the industrial far South Side — flow entirely or partially through Chicago. The Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal connects the Chicago River with the Des Plaines River, which runs to the west of the city. Chicago's history and economy are closely tied to its proximity to Lake Michigan. While the Chicago River historically handled much of the region's waterborne cargo, today's huge lake freighters use the city's far south Lake Calumet Harbor. The Lake also moderates Chicago's climate, making it warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

When Chicago was founded in the 1830s, most of the early building began around the mouth of the Chicago River, as can be seen on a map of the city's original 58 blocks. The overall grade of the city's central, built-up areas, is relatively consistent with the natural flatness of its overall natural geography, generally exhibiting only slight differentiation otherwise. The average land elevation is 579 feet (176 m) above sea level. The lowest points are along the lake shore at 577 feet (176 m), while the highest point at 735 feet (224 m) is a landfill located in the Hegewisch community area on the city's far south side.

Lake Shore Drive runs adjacent to a large portion of Chicago's lakefront. Parks along the lakeshore include Lincoln Park, Grant Park, Burnham Park and Jackson Park; 29 public beaches are found all along the shore. Near downtown, landfills extend into the Lake, providing space for the Jardine Water Purification Plant, Navy Pier, Northerly Island and the Museum Campus, Soldier Field, and large portions of the McCormick Place Convention Center. Most of the city's high-rise commercial and residential buildings can be found within a few blocks of the Lake.

Chicagoland is an informal name for the Chicago metro area, used primarily by copywriters, advertising agencies, and traffic reporters. There is no precise definition for the term "Chicagoland," but it generally means "around Chicago" or relatively local. The Chicago Tribune, which coined the term, includes the city of Chicago, the rest of Cook County, eight nearby Illinois counties; Lake, McHenry, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Grundy, Will and Kankakee, and three counties in Indiana; Lake, Porter, and LaPorte. The Illinois Department of Tourism defines Chicagoland as Cook County without the city of Chicago, and only Lake, DuPage, Kane and Will counties. The Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce defines it as all of Cook, and DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry and Will counties.
