Important Things to Know When Renting an RV

If it’s your company’s first time renting RVs for clients or employees, there is a bit of a learning curve. Life in a hotel offers many of the same amenities as a private residence without much effort, but living in an RV requires a little knowledge and action. After providing RVs to companies nationwide, we’ve compiled a list of the top things companies need to know when renting an RV, especially for the first time.

Size Matters

Yes, temporary housing doesn’t usually last too long, but that doesn’t mean that a family of four wants to be crammed into a two-person travel trailer the whole time either. You must make sure that the RV you are renting can comfortably accommodate the number of people you intend to stay there. The easiest way to judge this is by bed space…is there a bed for every person who will be living in the RV? If the answer is yes, you’re good to go. If it’s no, you may want to level up to the next size. Nothing will make an RV experience miserable like trying to fit a large family into an RV that is too small. (more…)

6 Reasons to Use RV Temporary Housing

There are lots of reasons why a company or organization may need to provide temporary housing to their employees, clients, or others. Insurance companies house their clients in temporary housing after total loss events such as fires or natural disasters, or even just while renovations are completed. Government, charity, and aid organizations may also need temporary housing in these situations, but also perhaps for refugees or victims of crimes. Construction crews and other work groups that move from site to site often house their employees and contractors in temporary housing.

That’s a lot of people staying in temporary housing! But what exactly is this type of housing? Temporary housing is any type of housing that is only intended to be occupied for a short period of time, such as a hotel/motel room, short-term home rental, shelter, tent, and as we will shortly explain, RVs. Companies and government organizations utilize various types of temporary housing simultaneously when trying to accommodate people in need or employees, but there are some issues, such as crime, lack of privacy, inadequate space, and more.

RV Maintenance: Why Is It Important?

If you’ve never lived in an RV, you might think that you don’t really need to do any maintenance to keep it functional. However, anyone who has lived in an RV knows this is a mistake. RVs, just like any other piece of equipment or structure, require regular maintenance to stay in the best shape possible. There are many working parts on an RV that needs a routine inspection, repair, and replacement. Not taking care of these tasks will lead to structural and functional faults in the RV, making it unsafe, uncomfortable, and eventually, unlivable.

So, how do you handle maintenance on an RV? Check out our RV maintenance checklists below to keep your RV running smoothly all year long: (more…)

Can Clients Stay Near Their Homes After a Disaster?

When disaster strikes, the mental and emotional strain on victims is often underestimated. Minimizing change and disruption of routines is critical for their mental health, protecting their livelihoods, and for the recovery of the community as a whole. One of the biggest causes of disruption for victims after a disaster is having to live in temporary housing while their homes are being repaired or replaced. While disaster relief organizations do their best to place victims in convenient locations, there have been times when disaster victims are relocated to completely different cities, states, or even countries. The mental and economic effects of a move like this after losing everything you own are staggering.

So how can disaster aid organizations, insurance companies, and government agencies mitigate this issue and place disaster victims as close as possible to their homes? By allowing them to stay on their own property or lot using RVs as an innovative temporary housing solution! (more…)

Why Choose RV Housing for Disaster Relief Workers

Disaster relief workers are some of the world’s biggest heroes. Putting themselves in the line of danger just to help those in need during some of life’s hardest times. Now that’s the kind of person everyone should strive to be! So it makes sense to keep disaster relief workers as comfortable as possible when on duty, and one easy way to do that is by providing them with RV housing.

RV Housing is More Private

Disaster relief workers are often housed in hotels, motels, motor lodges, extended stays, and other traditional forms of lodging. This puts them sharing a room with 2-3 others and sharing spaces with dozens if not hundreds of other guests. The lack of privacy can be unnerving, but RV housing fixes that. Each worker can have their very own space, including a bathroom and kitchenette, and be able to get some much needed separation from others after a hard day at work. (more…)

Can Someone Put Temporary RV Housing on Their Own Property?

When people have to temporarily move out of their own homes due to disaster or renovations, they always want to minimize the amount of change they are experiencing. Living in a completely different location, such as a hotel, motel, or short-term rental, causes the person to have to change almost everything about how they live. From only having a small selection of their wardrobe available to having to take a completely different, and sometimes longer, commute to work, there is so much that must change to accommodate living in a new location, even for just a little while. Those changes aren’t just inconveniences either…when insurance is paying for the relocation, those changes in routine can actually increase the expense of the claim.

RV Housing Group has the Solution

So how does RV Housing Group fix this issue? We eliminate all that unnecessary change by allowing people to stay on their own property. How? Well, we deliver and set up our RVs using the existing utility hookups on their property. This way, they’re able to live and work in as similar a situation to what they are used to as possible.

Why Insurance Companies Should Offer RV Housing After a Disaster

If your insurance clients experience a disaster that affects their insured property or assets, you’ve probably sprung into action to help in any way you can. Disasters are times when insurance agents and companies can really show their strengths, caring for their clients in more ways than just replacing their things. Thoughtful insurance companies realize that disasters affect much more than just the client’s material possessions, and keeping those clients as safe, comfortable, and stable as possible is essential to providing the type of customer service experience that we all strive to achieve.

So where do RVs fit into all this? RVs offer insurance companies a unique way to meet their client’s needs after disaster strikes. While many companies may just start piling clients into the closest motel or government-run shelter, we all know the issues with these housing arrangements. RVs are a better housing choice after a disaster because they provide: (more…)

The Benefits of RV Housing for Construction Workers on Temp Assignments

Construction is always a hard job, but when it requires workers to be on the road, living in an unfamiliar place, it makes it even harder. Being away from friends and family, living out of a suitcase, and eating a fast food diet are just a few of the pitfalls of having to work away from home. However, you can bring a little positivity to the situation by making it as comfortable for the workers as possible. That’s where RV rentals come into the picture. RVs offer construction workers working on long-distance temporary assignments a little home away from home. In this post, we’ll talk about the benefits of using rented RVs for these crews instead of traditional accommodations.


Construction crews working on temporary, remote assignments are typically housed in hotels, motels, or extended stay lodges. While it can be convenient to have daily housekeeping and a continental breakfast bar, let’s face it…these places are dangerous. Criminals and transients are known to frequent and stay at these places to avoid law enforcement and conduct illegal activity under the radar. The last thing you want is your workers getting caught up in a bad situation because the place they were lodged wasn’t safe. Instead, RV rentals allow you to set up the worker’s camp anywhere with the proper hookups. Many companies opt to set the RVs up on the actual job site, making the morning commute a breeze and giving them more control over comings and goings. (more…)

Why RV Rentals for Disaster Relief

Disasters are truly difficult times, not just for the individuals, families, and businesses affected, but also for all the emergency and support personnel who respond to help. In times of heavy sorrow, sometimes people just need a place to get away for some peace of mind. During those times, that’s what RV Housing Group provides. In this post, we’ll discuss all the different ways RV rentals can be beneficial during disaster relief efforts.

RV Rentals for Victims

When a disaster destroys homes, the individuals and families there need somewhere to go. While some may be able to stay with family or friends, others will not have this luxury. Piling disaster victims into a community shelter together strips them of their privacy and dignity. The better choice is to place each family in their own rented RV, set up as temporary housing until their homes can be rebuilt, or other accommodations can be found. (more…)
