RV Rental in Las Vegas?

Can anyone recommend an RV rental place in Las Vegas? We need one that can come pick us up at the airport. Our family of five will then visit the Grand Canyon, Bryce, Zion, etc. and return in Vegas. This is for a week in October.

There are several big name RV rentals in the Las Vegas area. We have used Cruise America in Las Vegas and were very happy with them but that was years ago. My friend has used El Monte several times in California and loves them. Camping world and Road Bear are other RV rentals we see on the road all the time. I'd check the cost of each place and see if they pick up. It might be better to get the cheaper rate and take a taxi from the airport.

I really doubt that any company will pick you up at the Las Vegas airport. At least I've never heard of one that would. You'll almost certainly need to take a taxi, which is readily available.

Can also rent from a private owner via this organization

Should be cheaper.
In any case - read the contract. Especially the section addressing total mechanical failure.

Airport pick up - LV is a small city/town. No problem with Taxi $$

With 5 people, you will need a larger Rv - obviously.
And that will probably mean a Class C or a $$$ Class A.

IN ANY case driving in any park will require patience with a long vehicle (27 feet is ideal). Also backing in to camping sites. Suggest you and wife retake your wedding vows in LV (with Elvis singing) as there will be emotional conflicts. Actually, you should do that anyway with kids present coupled with a family photograph. The most popular Elvis wedding song is:

Driving. The ONLY book to my knowledge that gives precise mile-by-mile driving directions to Utah parks is linked below. There is a e-book version (highly detailed) and a print version (does not have YouTube links, etc.)

The only book to my knowledge that has specific mile-by-mile driving directions coupled with extensive touring information is shown below. It is available in e-book (with extensive YouTube links) or a printed version (no links, obviously)

Las Vegas isn't all that small any more. There are over 1 million people living there now (surprised me too!) and it's spread out over many square miles.

Years ago El Monte in our area did pick up from the airport so it's not unheard of. You will need to call the local branch to find out.

Re Barbara
LV distances for taxi rides:

Airport
> to The Strip is 3-4 miles
> El Monte RV Rental on Boulder Highway is about 8 miles

And it is very easy to drive in/through that town unlike Los Angles or especially San Francisco (horror especially with manual xmission).
