    Tue at 11:57 AMHello, we are just starting to look into the RV world as part timers. And considering buying a Mercedes Winnebago ERA 70M. But we would like to rent before we buy. Does anyone have any suggestions on how we might be able to accomplish this?

      Tommy & Sandy T 7 hours ago Try Lazy Days. They rent RV’s at the Tampa location for sure and have locations elsewhere that probably have rentals. They do sell the Winnebago Era also.

      TravlinMac 23 minutes ago Try RVShare.com. Like AirB&B, personal units rented out. We had a beautiful little rental from Denver to Yellowstone, worked out really well.

      Eubie137 Tue at 11:38 AM Pace a styrofoam plate between each breakable plate. Great cheap cushioning. And if you are exhausted and all for your dishes are dirty, cheat and use one of the cushioning plates. (Don't tell my wife!)
