RV Rental FAQ
What do you rent?
We rent Class A motorhomes (Coach style front end), Class C motorhomes (van chassis style front ends), and travel trailers. All of our rental floor plans are available to look at online at www.byerlyrv.com
How much is your deposit?
All reservations require a $500 security deposit. This can be taken with cash, check or charge. The deposit is separate from the charges but is refunded at the end of the rental. For motorhome renters who are purchasing insurance, there is an additional $500 deposit required at pick up.
How many days are included in a weekly rental?
A weekly rental is 7 nights spanning 8 days. For example: a pick up Friday 12:30-4pm and a drop off the following Friday at 10:00am. Any day of the week Monday through Friday is fine for pick up. But we do not schedule pick-ups or drop offs on Saturday or Sunday.
When is pick up and drop off?
Pick-ups are scheduled between 12:30pm and 4:00pm. They're scheduled in the afternoon because drop offs are at 10:00am. We need the time to make sure each unit is prepped and cleaned for the next customer. The pick-up and drop off days are not billed as two separate days but as one day.
How many free miles are included with a rental?
With motorhome rentals you get 150 free miles per day. That equals 1050 for a week. After the free mileage you can purchase miles for 35 cents per mile. There are no mileage charges for travel trailer rentals.
Do you rent for longer than a week?
Yes, we prorate the weekly rate for the amount of days you're looking for. There are discounts for longer rentals (17 days and longer).
Do you rent for less than a week?
Yes, we offer less than a week packages on all units during the off-season (Sept 3-May 19) and on select vehicles in-season. There is no daily rate for rentals.
How is insurance handled?
For motorhome rentals you can either insure the vehicle with your auto insurance, if a rented motorhome is covered under your policy, or you can purchase insurance from MBA Insurance for between $21-$27/day. MBA Insurance carries a $1000 deductible per incident.
For travel trailer rentals, comprehensive and collision insurance is included with a $500 deductible. The renter must provide liability since the trailer is being pulled by their vehicle.
What are the additional charges?
Sales tax is added on top of the rental rate. If you need additional miles above the free mileage allowed then that would be extra. Insurance must be purchased extra if your auto insurance does not extend to a rental motorhome (insurance is included in travel trailer pricing). There are no standard additional prep fees, we include prep in the price. We give you the rental unit clean and full of gas. Provided you return it in the same condition, there are no additional charges.
Do your rentals come equipped with TV's and awnings?
All motorhomes come equipped with 1 TV and an awning. The TVs have input jacks so a DVD/Game system can be attached. Class A motorhomes have additional televisions and Allegro motorhomes come equipped with a DVD player. Some travel trailers models come with televisions, please check for availability.

The furnace, stove, and oven are propane fueled. The microwave, power outlets, and air conditioner work off of 110 electric. (The 19' Wildwood has a 2 burner stove and no oven)
What are the requirements for towing travel trailers and pop-ups?
To rent a travel trailer you must have a hitch rated at 5,000 lbs and an electronic brake controller installed on your vehicle. If you do not have a brake controller you can rent one from us for $60 provided that you have the proper wiring (7-way plug not a 4-way flat, you need a battery charge line or "hot line") on your vehicle.
What is your cancellation policy?
Cancellations with at least 30 days notice will receive full refund of deposit. 15-30 days prior, 40% of your payment will be withheld; 14-7 days 70% of your deposit will be withheld. 7 days or less and no-shows will forfeit all monies collected. Any portion of a deposit that is withheld can be used towards a future rental reservation within the following 12 months.
Can we tow behind motorhomes?
RV Rentals at Byerly RV in Missouri
The weight capacity for towing on the motorhomes is 3,500 lbs. The motorhomes are not wired for brakes (surge or electric) so you cannot pull anything that requires a brake set up. If you are purchasing insurance you may not tow behind any motorhome.
