Luxury on Wheels: The Ultimate Guide to Exploring the Great Outdoors with Blacksford RV Rentals

We recently returned from an RV adventure of a lifetime, during which we chased the path of totality during the 2024 total solar eclipse. It was an unforgettable trip that hooked us on #vanlife.

The Birth of Blacksford RV: A Solution to RV Rental Woes

The inception of Blacksford sprang from a common frustration among travelers—finding a reliable and reasonably priced RV rental. The journey began when one of the founders, disillusioned by the lack of suitable options between Minneapolis and Seattle, partnered with a friend to launch what would soon set a new standard in the industry. 

They introduced a fleet of new, fully-stocked Winnebago and Thor Quantum RVs, emphasizing transparency with no hidden fees and unlimited mileage, making luxury overland travel accessible to more adventurers.

We’ve been considering an RV trip for years. Still, Blacksford convinced us to take the plunge with their new high-quality RVs, top-drawer service, and unlimited miles. Any concerns about being stuck in the middle of West Texas with no assistance were quickly squashed after meeting with Cindee, the manager of Blacksford Las Vegas.

What Makes Blacksford Stand Out?

Blacksford isn’t just about renting an RV; it’s about crafting unforgettable travel experiences. Based out of Bozeman, Montana, and Las Vegas, Nevada, with plans to expand, Blacksford RV distinguishes itself through a unique blend of luxury, comprehensive support, and genuine hospitality.

Top-of-the-Line Fleet

Blacksford’s commitment to quality is evident in its fleet. Whether you choose the rugged Winnebago Revel, the sleek View, the spacious EKKO, or the versatile Solis, each vehicle is new and equipped with high-end amenities to ensure a comfortable journey.

All-Inclusive Luxury

Say goodbye to the traditional nickel-and-diming of RV rentals. Blacksford’s all-in pricing includes everything you need—towels, sheets, kitchenware, and even an annual national parks pass. This approach allows travelers to budget with certainty and enjoy the scenery without worrying about additional costs.

We spent more time planning our trip and trying to pack in as many National Parks as possible instead of calculating how much more it would cost to drive a bit out of our way to visit White Sands NP or Carlsbad Caverns.

Personalized Customer Service

At Blacksford RV, customer service is paramount. Every interaction is designed to make you feel at ease, from airport pickups to personalized RV orientations. Their 24/7 support ensures that help is just a phone call away, anytime and anywhere.

Seamless Experience

The stress of coordinating a trip can dampen the excitement of travel. Blacksford understands this and offers a seamless rental process, from online booking to airport greetings. Their team ensures that your adventure begins with ease and comfort from the moment you land.

Being local, we had the opportunity to visit the Blacksford office, which is conveniently located near the airport.

A Family-like Atmosphere

Blacksford prides itself on creating a warm, family-like environment. This approach sets them apart and fosters a sense of community and trust. Customers frequently praise the personalized attention they receive—like being greeted by name at the airport and sent off with a friendly farewell, making each journey a transaction and a relationship.

We can vouch for this as Cindee catered to our family and understood the unique challenges families traveling with young children can encounter.

Personal Experience: A Family Adventure to the Texas Eclipse

Our journey with Blacksford began at their Las Vegas office, managed by the wonderful Cindee, who made our experience memorable. As we arrived, she welcomed us with a birthday banner for our youngest boy, complete with Lego sets and drawing materials for the road—perfect for keeping the kids engaged during our travels.

Knowing we were first-timers with a 7-night and 8-day itinerary mainly consisting of dry camping, Cindee spent an hour explaining all the systems of our 2023 Winnebago Solis PX. Her thorough orientation covered everything from the toilet operation to tips on packing essentials and using the RV’s facilities, including the shower, hot water, air conditioning, and heater.

Our adventure took us from Las Vegas to Burnett, Texas, for the total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024. Although the Texas Eclipse festival was canceled due to weather, we still experienced a breathtaking 4 minutes and 23 seconds of totality from a picturesque riverside park.

The journey was as enriching as the destination, with stops in Tucson, the mysterious “Thing” in Benson, the surreal landscapes of White Sands National Park and Carlsbad Caverns, and the artistic enclave of Marfa.

Our return trip was equally memorable, featuring visits to the Alamo, dinner on San Antonio’s Riverwalk, a day in Austin, thrift shopping in Albuquerque, dinner at Pizzicleta in Flagstaff, and the awe-inspiring Meteor Crater in Arizona.

But, the unique roadside stops we discovered and boondocking adventures remain the most memorable and something we’d never experience from a standard fly and hotel trip. 

An RV road trip makes these possible, from an open-air shower in rainy Austin to an impromptu visit at the Prada store in Marfa.

Cindee was a constant support throughout our trip, available by phone or text for any questions. This greatly eased our concerns as RV newbies. 

This trip was not just a vacation but a profound family bonding experience, offering us a break from screens and everyday routines and a chance to create lasting memories.
