How do I get insurance?
For Travel Trailers and Motorhomes there are two options; you can get your own insurance and provide proof of liability, collision, and comprehensive (this is not just an auto policy on your vehicle, it does have to cover the RV you are renting) or use ours which starts at $30.00 per day for Motorhomes and $20.00 per day for Travel Trailers, and you always have the option to add roadside assistance as low as $9/day.

What deposit is required to reserve a rental unit?
The deposit to reserve a rental unit is $250.  If you cancel your reservation, the deposit is forfeited and NOT refundable.  A security deposit of $250 is required for expandables and travel trailers.   A security deposit of $500 is required for motorhomes.  The security deposit is released one week after your return provided all charges for the rental have been paid for.

Are there any other charges I may incur?
The State of Wisconsin assesses a 10% rental/sales tax on rentals.  You will have to pay for extra mileage if you go over the estimated mileage originally paid for when renting a Motor Home. Fees will be added for fuel if not returned full, tanks not dumped, smoking detected, violation of pet addendum, unit not cleaned, damages, and late returns.  Other fees may include any optional equipment you decide to rent or purchase (such as hitch rental, awning use, tank dump, etc.)

Do you charge for generator use?
Our prices include the use of the generator on motorhomes.

If I rent or buy a generator what type of generator should I get?
A 3500 watt generator is needed to provide power to your RV for lights, AC, microwave, outlets, and more.  A 2000 watt generator is efficient for lights and emergency backup.

All motorhomes come with a TV and select units come with a DVD player; all units have a stereo.

Are awnings available?
Yes, the cost for awning use is $20.

Can accessories be rented?
Yes, we rent hitches and brake control for trailers.  You must have the receiver already installed on your vehicle.

What do you accept for payment on the rental unit?
Payments can be made by cash, cashier’s check, travelers check, money order, personal check, and major credit cards.  Checks are NOT accepted less than 14 days prior to your departure date.

Are pets allowed?
We prefer no pets for the courtesy of the next renters who may have sensitivity issues.  We do have a pet addendum for renters who absolutely need to take their pet with them.  Restrictions, additional charges and a pet deposit will apply to all renters who are granted permission to travel with their pet.   The pet addendum must be signed by all renters indicating whether they are traveling with or without a pet.

Is smoking allowed?
No smoking is not allowed in the units.

Is there a special driver’s license needed to operate a Motorhome?
A current valid driver’s license is all that is needed to drive or pull any of our units (motorhomes & travel trailers).  Kunes Country Sheboygan RV Rentals will run a drivers license check on each driver to verify that all drivers are valid with no extensive adverse driving record.  Kunes Country RV Rentals, Inc. does reserve the right to refuse to rent to anyone that does not have a valid driver's license or has an extensive driving record.  All drivers and renters must be 25 years of age to rent a unit.

Is it easy to drive a Motorhome?
Yes, class C Motorhomes handle like a large SUV or a truck.  A test drive is offered for all motorhomes and travel trailers at pick-up so that you may see how the unit handles.  You may take the test drive, or decline the test drive and have one of our agents give you some driving tips.

What is the gas mileage on Motor Homes?
You can expect 8 to 10 miles per gallon.  Consumption depends on your speed, terrain, winds, and weight.

How many people can ride in a rental unit?
Seat belts are required in Motorhomes and we do not recommend exceeding the capacity as posted in the actual unit. No one is allowed to ride in travel trailers.

Can we tow anything behind a Motor Home?
No, towing is not allowed however bike racks and tote racks are.  There are locks on the receivers and renters will be charged if these are removed.

Travel to Canada is allowed. Travel to Mexico is prohibited.

Can I park my vehicle at you rental site while I travel?
