Mobile Home Rentals Are Completely Different Than Motorhome Rentals

"Mobile home rental" is a term that from time to time is confused with "motorhome rental." The differences between a mobile home rental and a motorhome rental are quite obvious. The blaring difference is that when you rent a motorhome, otherwise referred to as a recreational vehicle, you are most likely renting it for travel, or to use as additional temporary housing that can easily be moved from place to place. You can drive a motorhome, because, as the name indicates, it has a motor in it. Technically a mobile home is mobile, but you can't drive it anywhere.

Here are a few points that will help you understand the difference between the terms "mobile home rental" and "motorhome rental:"

  • A mobile home rental would be when you rent a semi-stationary residential trailer that has to be pulled to the location where it will be "set."

  • A motorhome can be rented from Cruise America when you want to take a road trip and travel in style and comfort. You can drive it anywhere in the country you'd like to go.

  • A mobile home rental would mean that you are renting a trailer that has most likely had the tires removed and has been set on blocks.

  • A motorhome rental from Cruise America allows you to explore the open road, traveling in and out of your favorite places in the United States and Canada.

  • A mobile home rental typically requires that you make monthly payments, not unlike paying for the rental of a home.

  • A motorhome rental from Cruise America allows you to pay only for the time you will be using it. You may rent a different model or size each time you travel, depending on your needs and preferences.

  • A mobile home is what you live in.

  • A Cruise America motorhome is what you play in.
