Urban RV-ing Secrets
It’s no secret that RVs can be intimidating due to their size, and one certainly must be careful when navigating Seattle’s city streets and store parking lots in an RV Rental, but this does not mean you have to stay away from the city, or hesitate to visit the attractions you most want to see. Remember, most of these streets are frequently driven by delivery trucks, fire engines and even tractor-trailer rigs on a daily basis!
A little common sense, a dose of caution and a bit of thoughtful planning will allow you to safely visit everywhere you want to go, and return your RV Rental in one piece.
Suppose you want to visit Seattle’s Pike Place Market? Sure, the market itself may not be the ideal place to drive a rented motorhome, but a little research will show quite a number of nearby parking areas only a short walk away. And when you’re done watching the fish fly (don’t ask, just go watch!) and you’ve had your fill of coffee and pastries, that short walk back to your RV will be just the thing to help you digest that sublime Seattle lunch!
Not sure if the parking lot at your intended destination is RV friendly? 5 minutes on Google maps satellite view will help you to formulate a safe and efficient entry and exit plan, or may just help you to find a grocery store or other parking lot a short walk from your destination. Planning ahead and doing a bit of research, you will find there’s nearly always a place in Seattle where you can safely park your RV rental reasonably close to your intended destination.
So don’t be timid! Yes, do be thoughtful, careful and prepared, but then go BOOK YOUR RV RENTAL and make your plans to enjoy the best that Seattle has to offer!

Absolutely! We wouldn’t want to leave Fido home, and neither should you. We only ask that your pet treat the RV with care, and that you take responsibility for any damage or cleanliness issues that may arise. But this is rarely a problem, and dogs love an RV rental adventure almost as much as you do.
At NW Adventure Rentals, the answer is… Great!! Did you know that most of our fleet is privately owned? Through our Leaseback Program, we will rent out your RV and share the rental revenue with you, the owner. We provide free storage, we’ll furnish the RV and insure it (our insurance covers you as well) and we’ll manage all maintenance needs. You get to use the RV whenever you want, and when you’re not using it, you’ll be earning money! Visit our Leaseback Section to learn more.
RV rentals and Travel Trailer rentals each have their distinct advantages. Renting an RV instead of a travel trailer is generally more maneuverable, and also does not require you to own a tow vehicle. You can pull into a rest area and use the kitchen or restroom without going outside, and kids can sit at the table with seatbelts and be entertained while you are driving. A travel trailer rental, on the other hand, offers the ability to park the trailer at your campsite and use the tow vehicle to get around more easily than a sometimes cumbersome RV.
Your RV Rental needs will vary depending on how many people you are bringing, and where you plan to go. If there are two people who plan to go skiing in the mountains, you might consider one of our smaller, all-wheel-drive campervan rentals. On the other hand, a long road-trip with four kids might call for renting a Class A motorhome with plenty of space. Remember, dinnertime and bedtime are when your RV rental will feel most crowded, and however large the motorhome feels when you pick it up, it is bound to shrink once everyone is milling about inside.
Many of our RV Rental customers fly to Seattle from out of state. You can fly to Seattle Tacoma International Airport, or better yet, see if you can get a flight to Paine Field in Everett, WA, a smaller, less crowded airport that is closer to our RV rental store. Either way, the best solution for most people is to use Uber or Lyft to get to our RV Rental facility from the airport. Your motorhome rental will be eagerly waiting for you!
