Reno - RV Parks, RV and Truck Rentals, and Storage

Renting any size recreational vehicle the week of Burning Man is almost impossible in this area as the summer approaches, so plan ahead and book early if you’re looking for enlightenment in an RV or trailer.

Renting a generator, portapottie, lift, trencher, or other equipment is much easier, but still reserve beforehand.

Also, Storage facilities are all over the place, but we’ve included three as our favorites.
