If you’ve ever wanted to experience the advantages of RVing with a smaller rig, Cruise America is making it easy with their new T17 truck camper rental program. For the first time ever, a major RV rental company is offering truck rentals in the US and Canada by partnering with Southern California-based Lance Campers.
First Truck Camper Rentals Now at Cruise America
The new aluminum-body 2015 Ford F150 and Lance’s new 650 model are strategically offered only at Cruise America’s Los Angeles (Carson), San Francisco (Newark), Vancouver (Delta) and Calgary rental centers. With truck camper rental programs in these locations, Cruise America customers are within an easy drive of the best camping destinations in the west like Yosemite National Park, California Wine Country and Banff National Park.
Michael Smalley, vice president for Cruise America, noted in a company press release, “We are pleased to add the Cruise America T17 truck camper to our RV fleet. With the growing popularity of small campers, the T17 will allow us to provide our customers with a vehicle that’s easy to drive, simple to operate, gets great gas mileage and still has all the amenities of a full-size motorhome. Especially for those who’ve never tried an RV vacation, this will be an excellent adventure vehicle.”
