San Luis Obispo – Cheap Stays

Cal Poly commencement in June is just around the corner and unless you’ve already booked your hotel or vacation rental, it’s going to be slim pickings that weekend. This is one idea for a cheap stay, and within just a few miles of campus!

Why pay $600 per night to rent a house, or $350 for a hotel room? If you could spend under $200 per night and house your entire family for the big graduation day, why not?

Luxury RV’s are not that expensive to rent, considering the cost of ownership or comparing it to a vacation rental. Many will sleep 6 – 10 and if you have full hook ups, you can use it like a vacation rental home.

So, if you’re trying to figure out where to stay for daughters big day, consider a delivered RV rental by owner. They’ll set it up and have it ready for you when you arrive, and many RV owners will even share their “stuff” with you; kitchen essentials, towels, linens, camping chairs, etc. You show up and it’s ready upon arrival.

RV Camping without RV Owning

RV Camping without owning, storing, maintaining, driving, or towing. Is this even possible?

Who hasn’t seen the movie RV with Robin Williams? I think most people view RV camping as the rolling box swaying down the highway that families climb into each summer to explore America. I’m fairly sure that this movie helped solidify that image.

Is it possible to experience RV camping without RV owning? YES! RVPlusYou has launched a new service that brings RV owners together with folks who want to camp in an RV, but don’t necessarily want to drive or tow.

The fact is there are millions of families who will never own an RV, but would love to experience camping in comfort. They want to go RV camping, but without the hassle. RVPlusYou has the solution for these kinds of renters and the benefits to renting this way are amazing:

  1. No driving, no towing. Show up and it’s ready to go
  2. Low cost – Because you’re renting from an RV owner, they will generally rent to you for much less than the big box rental companies.
  3. All the stuff you need is generally there; camp chairs, plates, foil, salt & pepper, cooking oil, etc. You don’t get that with the big box companies.
  4. You get the local knowledge of an RV owner who knows their backyard. Pick their brain, reserve the best campsite at the best campground during the best season.

The service makes sense for millennials, seniors, and everyone in between. Some people don’t like to own “stuff”, some people used to own “stuff”, and some people are thinking about buying “stuff”. RV owners sharing their “stuff” makes sense and it earns them extra money to help pay for all that “stuff”.

I recently rented to a wonderful couple in their 80’s who are former RV owners. They’ve done it all when it comes to camping with kids and RV’ing. When they found out that they could re-live their camping days without all the hassle of towing or driving a big bus, they were in.

Discover Pismo Coast Village

One of the most sought after camping destinations on the central coast has to be Pismo Coast Village, a shareholder owned property with a prime beach location on the Central Coast of California.

With a long list of amenities, well kept campsites, and a location boasting great weather year round, this is atop most RV camper’s bucket lists.

When it comes to family RV camping, there probably isn’t another RV Park on the Central Coast that compares. The recreation department offers kids programs that run all week long during summer months and weekends during off peak times.

A heated pool, arcade, bike rentals, mini-putt golf course, basketball, ping pong, restaurant/grill and many other amenities will keep everyone in the family happy during your vacation or weekend getaway.

Want to store your RV and have it delivered and set up at your campsite? This service is popular among owners and visitors alike. For around $50 per month PCV will store your RV, and setup at your campsite is around $60. RV set up

Pismo Coast Village also allows RV rentals from local owners on RVPlusYou and other rental companies to be delivered and set up at your campsite. So joining friends and family for a weekend getaway or a long vacation is a convenient and inexpensive option for everyone.

Camping is one of those family activities that creates lasting memories, especially for kids. Being able to experience the outdoors on a camping trip in the comfort of an RV at a location such as Pismo Coast Village really is a treat, one that comes highly recommended.
