RV Rental Outlet Experiences Record Growth in Recreational Vehicle Rentals

Economic times have not slowed down vacationers and businesses that are turning to RV Rental Outlet for luxury recreational vehicle rentals to extend their travel budgets. In the past six months, RV Rental has experienced 60 percent growth in the number of RV rentals and a 50 percent increase in the number of days rentals are on the road.

In order to accommodate for the explosive growth, RV Rental Outlet has nearly doubled the fleet size of Class C motor homes and moved from a 1/4-acre location in Mesa to 1 and 1/2 acres in Tempe. The additional space has allowed RV Rental Outlet to expand services with onsite secure RV customer storage facilities, an RV parts store, RV service and repair, propane sales and a waste dump station. They even offer firewood. The new services and growth in rentals has also resulted in new jobs, with a 50 percent increase in staff size.

“The growth we have experienced from 2008 through 2009 is evidence that people are not letting the economic times take away valuable vacation time spent with their families and friends,” said Donn Kaebisch, co-owner of RV Rental Outlet. “Our goal is to be a complete service provider to the RV renter, whether for personal travel or business, as well as a convenient location for complete recreational vehicle services.”

In the period of January 2008 to July 2008, RV Rental Outlet had 276 RV rentals reserved for an average of four days. During the same period in 2009, RV Rental Outlet booked 435 rentals for travelers taking the vehicles out for an average of six days. RV Rental Outlet also contributes the rapid growth to new service programs offered in 2009 including concierge services, an elite partner program, business travel services, temporary housing, and travel agent incentives. They also have seen new business result from local affiliate marketing programs and social media programs.
