At Suncoast RV Rental, we strive to offer our guests the most diverse fleet of late model RVs so they have the freedom to choose an RV that suits their needs. Our Thor Chateau 23U model is a favorite for first-time RV-ers, couples and small families. Our newest RV, the 2018 Thor Freedom Elite 22FE, offers the same versatility and basic layout as the 23U with the addition of a bedroom slide.

It is a great RV with all the amenities of home including microwave, 3-burner gas cooktop, shower, TV, refrigerator and more. There is room for 5 to sleep including a queen size in the bedroom, dream dinette and large bed over the driver. You can view this RV and our entire fleet

Travel by RV is the fastest growing method of vacation travel in the US. At Suncoast, we have had thousands of guests in our 14 year history.

In addition to rental clients, we also have people who visit our booth at RV Shows who are intimidated by the thought of driving a large vehicle and also do not understand how well-equipped all sizes of RVs are.

We have RVs from 22 ft. These 22 and 23 ft. units are just a bit larger than a large pick-up or SUV and they drive just as easy. These smaller units are fully equipped as are the large units with beds, full bath with shower, kitchen with refrigerator, freezer, a microwave and gas stop stoves. They also are all equipped with air conditioning, power brakes and a power transmission.

When you rent an RV with Suncoast, you get a full orientation as well as a driving lesson conducted by the owner. This driving lesson consists of about an hour of traveling on 2-way roads, highways and interstates and we will run you through a service station. You might ask why this service station is important. As it has been proven over the years, the most RV accidents happen when the driver pulls away from the refueling pump. When you finish the lesson and orientation, you will be fully equipped to handle the RV. Over the years, we have had drivers from age 25 to 75, both men and women.

If you have any challenges during your travel, Suncoast is available to answer your questions 24/7. When you do plan or schedule your trip, we can help you with your proposed trip and map out your route and attractions. We are just a down home family-owned business, come see us.

Before you know it, summer will be upon us. We are actively booking up for June and July so give us a call, send an email or a text or go ahead and book online. Your RV adventure awaits. Here are some tips for preparing for your trip:


1. Map out your trip to your destination and pre-book campgrounds when possible. Some days you may just want to 'wing it" but if you are going to a popular tourist destination, it's better to plan ahead as you do not want to be left without a place to stay.


2. Plan for extra time. An RV vacation is intended to be a relaxing adventure. No one wants to spend the whole time driving, so make your schedule a bit flexible and plan for weather, traffic or an impromptu stop at a roadside attraction. You will be thankful and more rested upon your return.

3. Make a menu plan. Traveling by RV saves you money as you can make your own meals instead of eating out three times a day. Remember - you do not have to bring everything with you - there are grocery stores along the way. Pack the essentials and food for a few days. You can stock up along the way.

4. Download a few camping apps to help with planning and travel. There are apps for everything from campgrounds, weather and gas stations to where to find a wi-fi signal or a Red Box location. Some we recommend include: GasBuddy, Allstays Campground, RV Trip Wizard and Waze.

5. Make a budget. With the RV rental, campgrounds and fuel, things start to add up but with proper planning and packing, you are on your way to saving money on the trip. Plan for gas mileage around 8 miles per gallon.

"I'd give them 100 stars if I could. You just don't find service like this anywhere any longer! We were in jam because our RV rental that was booked with RVshare was cancelled last minute because of an inoperable RV.

I called Suncoast RV Rental with less than 24 hours' notice. Sharon made the rental a breeze and even delivered the RV on short notice. The RV we rented was a newer unit with low miles and in great shape. From the quick contracting, follow up during and after the trip including a call from the owner, the experience with Suncoast RV was excellent.

Suncoast RV Rental is my "go to" for ALL future RV Rentals!
Thank you Suncoast RV!

"One of our friends recommended Suncoast RV rental. They made the whole process easy. They even followed up with us to make sure everything was good after our first day. We had a brand new RV, which was great. It was our first time renting a RV, whole family enjoyed it! Everything worked perfectly in the RV. Now, I will be recommending Suncoast RV rental to all my friends and family. Thank you so much!!"
