Here we are in Sedona, and I’ve never seen so many RV rentals in one place!
As we were checking in to our park, a couple in a Class A rental was also attempting to check in. This is how the conversation went:
CLERK: You’ll need to have a donut or a threaded sewer coupling.
Rental Dad: Ummm…. We’ve already had breakfast. Thanks though.
CLERK: And you’ll also need to have a hose support to keep a proper slope on your dump hose if you intend to leave it out.
Rental Dad: I don’t think she needs that, but hang on. Honey! Do you leave your support hose out on the slope?
Rental Mom: What!?!?
They were obviously new at this. After a quick husband/wife telepathic read-each-others’-minds decision, we offered our services on getting the couple set up. Well actually, I offered James’ services to set them up, because I know how much he likes sewage. I simply took pictures because I found it funny.
The couple was from Israel, and they were traveling with their 3 kids. They just picked up the RV and had plans to road trip for the next few weeks. What a way to see the country! The rental company gave them a quick 5 minute tutorial then sent them on their way. This thing must have cost them a fortune to rent! How can you send a complete novice out the door in a big rig like that with only a 5 minute primer?
Here’s James being a Good Samaritan.
Sedona seems to be an RV rental mecca. Have any of you noticed high numbers of rentals anywhere else in the US?
