Burning Man’s A Boon For RV Rental Business
Burning Man, the counter-culture festival that takes place every August in the Black Rock Desert, is good news for companies that rent RVs, television station KTVN in Reno, Nev., reported.
“It’s a big boost at the end of a season heading into winter,” said Bill Burko with Western Skies RV. “Speaking for most people, it gets you through the wintertime. It’s a nice economic boost. It’s also fun.”
Western Skies RV has rented out all of its RVs this week, with 20 of the 25 going to the playa. Some RVs can fit upwards of 10 people with a cost between $5,000 and $10,000 per week.
“People fly in from New Zealand, South Africa, New York, Hawaii,” he said. “When they get here, they don’t have a vehicle. They don’t want to tent it so what they have to do is rent RVs.”
