Cruise America Holds Fuel Costs Down

April 19, 2001
Filed under Trailer News

Cruise America has announced a Fuel Cost Protection Program to counteract fuel price
increases that may occur through 2001. The program will establish a base fuel cost per
gallon this spring and credit any increases in that cost against the total rental charges.
“We’re hoping to take some of the uncertainty out of renting an RV,” said a spokesman for
Cruise America. “This program will help keep costs down and means people won’t have to
limit their travel plans.” The base point for measuring fuel prices was taken April 1, when
unleaded gas was selling for $1.45 per gallon. At 8 mpg, the average fuel cost per mile
driven in an RV is 18 cents. Fast forward to renting an RV for the first week in July. If
the average price for unleaded fuel jumps, the difference for all miles driven will be
credited against rental costs when the RV is returned. The Cost Protection offer runs from
April 1 through rentals returned by December 31, 2001. It is open to bona fide residents of
the United States and Canada who are renting Cruise America RVs in the United States.
Cruise America RV Rental and Sales is the world’s largest motorhome rental and sales
company with over 150 locations across the country and a fleet of more than 4,800
recreational vehicles, including motorhomes and truck campers. For additional information,
