Is it possible to travel in the winter in the colder areas of the U.S.?
Yes, however, in locations with harsh winter weather, our RVs are "winterised" from approximately November to March. This means we have drained the water and holding tanks, and filled them with anti-freeze. This will prevent the tanks and pipes from freezing and bursting. If you chose to have your rental RV "de-winterised" (so that you can use your sink, shower, and toilet) it will cost $75. You will need to exercise extreme care while travelling in a "de-winterised" RV during frigid weather. You will need to run the heater at all times to protect the tanks and pipes from freeze damage, or in extreme cases you would need to put anti-freeze in the water and holding tanks (by doing so, you could only use the toilet). If the pipes or tanks were damaged from freezing, it is considered negligent damage and you would have to pay a $5000 deductible for the repairs. If you have any more questions on the rental policies during winter, please contact the rental centre where your trip would originate. They can provide you with specific information.
Are there any places we cannot take the RV?
Vehicles are restricted from operation in Death Valley and other desert areas during July and August. Damage waivers are voided should this rule be violated.
