Sportsmobile for Rent...anyone???

Greetings! We're wondering if Sportsmobiles are ever offered for rent from private owners. We'd love to rent one next Summer (2011)...but don't need one long enough to purchase one.

Looking forward to hearing any thoughts and/or ideas!

Insurance is usually a sticking point. Most policies specifically disallow renting. Mine doesn't even allow 'lending' except to family members.

FWIW, this subject has come up a few times before, and I may be mistaken, but I'm not sure anyone has ever agreed to rent out their SMB. Can't hurt to ask, but I wouldn't get my hopes up too high.

Herb is right. I have talked people here in Jackson Hole in rental vans but they are really old and not something I would want to be traveling in. If you do find something please let us know so we can help the next person looking for a rental.
sorry i wasnt more help.

Try this site these are really nice vans and they rent them.

Sprinter Sportsmobiles For Rent

Hello Texas:

I'm not sure its what your looking for, but there is an outfit in Las Vegas, Nevada that rents two sizes of Sportsmobiles based on the Sprinter chassis. Their website is linked from the Sportsmobile website so there is at least an unofficial acknowledgement from Sportsmobile (I wouldn't call it an endorsement, but a call to Sportsmobile West might get some further information).

Here's what Sportsmobile has to say (select "Rent Sportsmobiles...):
