Disclosure: I was given the RV by Neff Brothers featured in this post to use for a weekend to facilitate my review. All opinions are 100% mine and not influenced in any way.
My family and I were ready for a mini getaway over Labor Day weekend but didn’t want to go too far away or break the bank. We decided to go camping and thought it would be a great way to spend time together as a family. The only problem is that we didn’t have a tent or an RV. With 5 of us we thought tent camping would be a little bit cramped so we decided we would try an RV. We came across Neff Brothers RV Rentals located in Lorain, OH. Neff Brothers were so kind to let us use a Sunseeker RV that was large enough for our entire family and then some for our weekend trip.
My husband drove to Lorain, OH to pick up the RV so we could load everything up that we needed for the weekend and drive to our destination. With 5 people I forgot how much stuff you need to bring along. I didn’t have to worry about storage space because the Sunseeker RV had plenty of space for everything. There was plenty of storage around the bottom of the RV for our suitcases, firewood, cooler, drinks, and lawn chairs. Each compartment can be secured tightly to keep it from falling out while traveling.
When you enter the RV you can see how much room the RV has even without the sideouts opened. It can sleep 9 people with a bedroom in the back, bunk beds, a full size bed in the kitchen area and a full size bed above the divers seat. When you open the sideouts there is so much more space to walk thru the hallway, cook, sit, and sleep. It opens up the RV with a click of a button and takes seconds.
In the back bedroom there was a full size dresser area to store clothes in. On each side of the bed had storage cabinets and a small table that I could my phone down to charge at night. Plus, there is a door that can be closed for privacy.
In the bunk bed area you can sleep 2 people on the bottom and one person on the top. There is a TV with a DVD player right next to the bunk beds which was perfect so my youngest son could watch his movies at night. It also had a radio right below the TV so you can listen to some tunes while you are camping.
The full size kitchen offers a fridge, freezer, stove, sink, microwave, and oven. There were cabinets in the sink area to store pans, the garbage can, and kitchen utensils in. The kitchen table is big enough to fit our entire family for meals or for family game night. Cooking in the kitchen was a breeze and we made many meals using the stove and microwave. We could get up and make breakfast, lunch, or dinner with the appliances provided in the RV.
Across from the kitchen table is a couch that turns into a full size bed which my teenage son claimed since it was long enough for him. Above the couch and kitchen table were storage cabinets on each side where we could store our food, appliances, towels, and other items.
Above the driver and passenger seat is another full size bed equipped with a TV and DVD player. My teenage daughter claimed that bed as she could climb up with a ladder provided and close the curtains for privacy. And when we wanted to watch TV, we could turn the TV towards the couch area and sit around and watch it. This came in handy on the day that it rained all day.
The bathroom had a shower/tub, sink, toilet, medicine cabinet and storage below the sink. I was able to put all of the toiletries in the medicine cabinet and drawer. Inside the shower/tub there were shelves where you could put your soap, shampoo, and conditioner in it and plenty of room to move around in.
In the driving area there is a navigation system built right into the RV with a touchscreen. This navigation system detects you are in an RV so it will give you the right route each time so you don’t get on a path that an RV can’t go on. From this touchscreen, you can also operate the DVD player above the seats and the radio for the front area.
Driving in the car with kids can be stressful sometimes as the kids are too close together so they fight and complain that they have no room. Driving the RV made it easier on us as parents. The kids could relax and stretch out inside of it instead of being cramped in a car. Plus, they thought it was so cool to be in a moving RV.
Setting up at our campsite was a cinch and didn’t require much work. All we had to do was back the RV into the site, push the buttons to release the sideouts, and hook everything up. This only took us less than 10 minutes to do. It was so much easier than setting up a tent and unloading a car.
If you want some shade all you have to do is push a button to release the canopy above the door. We enjoyed our breakfast underneath the canopy in the morning while sitting at the picnic table. At night the canopy lights up so you can see while enjoying a nice relaxing fire.
If you are thinking of RV camping, I highly suggest it. And if you don’t want to purchase one, I will tell you that renting one is so much easier. That way you don’t have to worry about maintaining it, storing it, etc. It is a great for families to use for weekend getaway, vacation, and more.
