What type of motor homes do you have for vacation rentals?
“In motor homes, the ones you drive, we start at 22 feet and go all the way up to 42-ft. luxury units,” said Sheri Fuller, who has operated Fuller RV with her husband, Bobby, for 33 years. Their son, Matt, is the company’s mechanic.
“We also have trailers you tow that have everything the motor homes have except a generator, so you have to plug in at a campground. An SUV can tow trailers up to about 30 ft.
“These vehicles can sleep from two to 10 people. With the large number of floor plans we have, we can meet anybody’s needs.”
What are motor homes and trailers equipped with?
“They have television, DVD players, air conditioning and heat. They can sleep the designated number of people, usually with three to six beds. They have a three-burner stove top and either a microwave-convection oven, or an oven and a microwave oven, refrigerator-freezers and a kitchen sink. The bathroom has either a tub shower or a stand-up shower, toilet and sink. The dinette and sofa convert to double beds. Overhead bunks are queen size and some have a queen bed in the back.
“People bring their own linens and kitchen utensils or I can supply pillows, blankets, sheets, towels, pots and pans, and dishes for $180.”
What services do you offer vacation renters?
“A lot of people book a campsite and want a trailer but don’t have the vehicle to tow it, so we will deliver it, set it up and pick it up. We will also deliver and pick up motor homes.
“When people fly in, we pick them up at the airport and put them in their motor home. When they come back, we take them to the airport.
“If you have a rental and have a question or problem, you can reach us 24/7 because we always answer the phones.”
Are pets allowed?
“People can bring pets in all units. A $200 pet fee covers ionizing and steam cleaning so the next renters won’t have any reaction.”
Is a special driver’s license needed?
“No, just a regular driver’s license, even with the 42-foot motor homes. We show people how to drive the motor home. It’s only difficult if you overthink it. You’re a little wider, a little longer, a little taller. Give yourself an hour on the highway and you’re fine.”
What are some other uses for motor homes and trailers?
“A major use is temporary housing with a house renovation or repairs after a storm. You can keep an eye on the contractor. Your pets can stay in the motor home, and the kids are in their own neighborhood, near their school.
“They are also used as on-site housing for family reunions, weddings, graduations. We put 10 trailers on a property last fall to house guests for a wedding, one family to a trailer.
“They are good for transporting sick or elderly people, who can lie down with someone to care for them while you’re driving. And there’s a generator for oxygen.
“We set up units for businesses as command centers. We recently set up five units in different locations for National Grid after a blizzard in Rhode Island.”
