We own a Winnebago Voyage 35 and are travelling to Vancouver in June.
We are taking a cruise from there that ends in Anchorage.
We are thinking about renting an RV there and spending a week or so seeing the sights.
Advice, please, on:
RV parking in/around Vancouver
Rental companies in Anchorage
Best size for RV'ing in Alaska (just 2 of us)
Don't miss campgrounds and sights.
Thanks alot.
Gordon and Patti

It's been a while, 1996 & 2000, but we rented twice from here
They were the best by far. 100% satisfied. If we were doing it again, they would be our choice.

gordonandpatti: Hi from Tampa.

Before we can make any suggestions, we need a little more info on what you'll already have experienced during the cruise phase of your trip. For instance,on the cruise, will you be spending any time in Ketchican, Juneau, Skagway/Haines, Seward, etc. and have already experienced the coastal environment of Alaska, or do you want to use some of your "week or so" time to visit such areas? My wife and I together agree that we enjoyed the coastal regions (ie., Skagway/Haines, Valdez, Seward, Homer, etc.) MUCH more than the interior at Denali, Fairbanks, or Tok, BUT, since you will have already "done" the coast, ya might want to experience the interior. What is your preference?? Will try to help, but with only a week or so, it'll be tough to enjoy it all. Steve & Lynette

There are class c rentals for much of the travelers in Anchorage. Thats what you see in most of the rv parks and campgrounds. Seward and the Kenai pennisula are a must and Whittier where there are cruises. Get down to Homer and see the view from the top of the Cook inlet overlooking the Homer spit. There is no bad places to visit in Alaska that's what adventures are all about. great journeys to ya

If you only have a week: On the way to Seward on the Kenai stopping at Exit Glacier is a must. It's a good way to get close up to a glacier. Since you went so far, a trip to Denali NP. is a must. We have visited family up in North Pole (Fairbanks) AK. 5 times over the last 18 years. Denali is about 260 miles north of Anchorage. There is a National Park campground right next to the Denali Vistor Center. In the parking lot for the visitor center there were loads of class C rental units. I also saw some class B units too. To have the best chance to see Denali take the first or 2nd shuttle bus into the park. It takes about 4 hours to get to the second visitor center (Eielson). Most days by noon the clouds come in and block the view of the mountain. Fairbanks is about 120 miles north of Denali. Up there a trip on the Riverboat Discovery is a must. The visitor center in Fairbanks is very good. Traveling from Fairbanks towards Valdez a stop at North Pole Santa Clause House is a must. They also have a nice campground there. From Fairbanks to Valdez it's about 350 miles of good river and mountain views. There are a lot of places to pull off and explore. Just before you drop down into Valdez you have a great view of the bay. Doing all this in a week is pushing it. 10 days would make it more relaxing..... Here is a link to my Aug. 08' Denali IRV2 album. AK. 08'

Hi Patti and Gordon, now you need to store your RV here in the Vancouver area. We have our RV stored in a Selfstorage ground in Langley, BC.
About $ 90.00 US. If I'm at home and not on the road or the air, we would like to give you a hand...., drive you to the Airport etc...
Maybe PM us.
