If you’ve ever wanted to experience the advantages of RVing with a smaller rig, Cruise America makes it easy with their T17 truck camper rental program.
The new aluminum-body 2015 Ford F150 and Lance’s new 650 model are strategically offered only at Cruise America’s Las Vegas (Henderson), Los Angeles (Carson), Phoenix (Mesa), San Francisco (Newark), Vancouver (Delta) and Calgary rental centers. They also now have it in Anchorage, Denver, Salt Lake City, and Seattle.
With truck camper rental programs in these locations, Cruise America customers are within an easy drive of destinations like Yosemite National Park, California Wine Country, and Banff National Park.
Michael Smalley, vice president for Cruise America, noted in a company press release,
“We are pleased to add the Cruise America T17 truck camper to our RV fleet. With the growing popularity of small campers, the T17 will allow us to provide our customers with a vehicle that’s easy to drive, simple to operate, gets great gas mileage and still has all the amenities of a full-size motorhome. Especially for those who’ve never tried an RV vacation, this will be an excellent adventure vehicle.”
Why try a truck camper rental?
Even if you have your own RV, a truck camper rental like the Cruise America T17 makes sense when you want to head off the beaten path. Truck campers can fit into dozens of scenic spots that larger RVs cannot, and you’ll save money on fuel too.
Here’s what you can expect with your rental:
Ford F150 XLT SuperCab:
- 5.0L V8 engine
- Automatic transmission
- 2-wheel drive
- Air conditioning
- Cruise control
- Rear view camera
- AM / FM / CD / USB / Bluetooth / Aux Sound System
- 23-gallon fuel tank
The Lance T17 Camper doesn’t have slide outs but it does sleep three and includes:
- Shower and fresh water toilet
- 2 burner propane gas cooktop with 110-volt microwave oven
- Propane/12-volt furnace with 110-volt roof air conditioner
- 3-cubic feet propane/AC/DC refrigerator
- 5-gallon propane gas tank
- 6-gallon propane water heater
- 22-gallon fresh water / 15-gallon grey water / 16-gallon sewage water tanks
As with all of their other RV rentals, Cruise America offers fully stocked truck camper rentals that include reservable Vehicle Provisioning Kits (kitchenware) and Personal Kits (linens).
You can get more information on their website CruiseAmerica.com, and call their toll-free number 800-671-8042.
