Allstar Coaches, a national RV rental dealer based in Florida, announced that it stands ready to assist in the wake of Hurricane Isaac.
According to a press release, Allstar provided more than 30 RV rentals to government agencies, the Red Cross and various utility providers following Hurricane Katrina. “As a Florida-based company we understand what is needed after a storm and we’ll do what we can to help,” says Rob Tischler CEO of Allstar.
The Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA), the Red Cross and various insurance carriers used the motorhome rental units in a variety of missions following Katrina and are expected follow suit after Isaac. These units are self-contained with generators and large fuel tanks designed to allow extended use in areas where power isn’t available.
The RVs can be used as mobile command centers, as a base for rescue and repair operations and as temporary housing for emergency personnel brought in to deal with this catastrophe as well as those displaced by the storm.
“Government agencies, utility and insurance providers have priority; however additional units will be made ready for individuals and businesses as they become available,” Tischler said.
He advises that displaced residents check with their insurance carriers to see if temporary housing is covered by their policies, indicating that most insurance companies will cover these costs if it becomes necessary.
Von Isanogle, Allstar’s fleet operations director, noted, “All our locations have implemented emergency action plans and are standing by, ready to start moving vehicles in as soon as it becomes safe to do so.”
Allstar operates a fleet of luxury motorhome rentals which are available nationwide from their strategically located offices in nine states.
According to Allstar Coaches, the RV rental industry is poised to have its best year ever, thanks in part to the highest air fares seen in more than three decades.
“The airline industry’s seemingly relentless commitment to create innovative new ways to bilk consumers is finally driving them away,” the Florida-based firm stated in a news release. “With no end in sight, even with fuel prices steadily declining, the cost of air travel continues to rise, reaching levels that travelers haven’t seen since Congress was forced to step in with the Airline Deregulation Act in 1978.”
RV rental companies such as Allstar Coaches appear to be the largest beneficiaries of airline industry’s actions and are reaping the rewards. Allstar, who specializes in luxury motorhome rentals, is reporting their highest volume since opening in 2006.
“For years airlines have been taking more and doing less. The public has had enough and is finally pushing back,” said Rob Tischler, CEO of Allstar. “Now that the levy has broken, we are here to help pick up the pieces. Now, to add just a bit more salt to an already gaping wound, the TSA along with several major airlines have proposed to double the mandatory security fee on every ticket sold.”
Doreen Santos, a registered nurse who resides in Allentown, Pa., with her husband and three boys, was shocked when she learned that airfare to Orlando that usually cost her about $200 per person was now going for more than $500. Determined not to give up their vacation, the family decided to rent an RV and make the journey to Florida part of their adventure.
“We’ve gone to Disney every year since the kids were born. I couldn’t even imagine having to tell them we couldn’t go this year,” said Santos. “My kids were ecstatic when they found out we were taking an RV. When all was said and done, without the hotels and airfare, we saved about $2700.”
Families looking to head out on the highways in an RV can save money at virtually every turn. Without the added burden of overpriced hotels and airfares, there isn’t a need for rental cars or expensive restaurants. Allstar’s rental units are equipped with full functional kitchens, spacious, comfortable cabins and come outfitted with everything one would expect to find in a luxury vacation rental. “Ours just happen to have a couple sets of wheels attached,” said Von Isanogle, Allstar’s fleet manager.

RV rental firm Allstar Coaches has branched into a new marketplace, offering companies “custom wrapped motorhomes” to use as a high-profile marketing tool.
“There is nothing quite as eye catching or effective as a brightly wrapped bus cruising down Main Street America. It’s something you don’t miss,” said Rob Tischler, CEO of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Allstar. “Heads turn wherever you go and everybody remembers seeing it.
He added, “Corporate RV rental is our fastest growing division,” noting that All-Star has seen a healthy 35% increase over the past year.
Tischler said that some of America’s largest and well-known corporations have embraced the use of branded RV rentals to promote their wares, citing the ability to connect with people on a personal level and in multiple locations.
Disney, through its DreamWorks division, rented and wrapped a luxury RV from Allstar Coaches for a promotional tour timed to coincide with the release of their sci-fi hit “I Am Number Four.” Over a two-week period, the campaign toured 10 major markets, hosting fan experiences and giveaways at NASCAR events, theme parks and various other high traffic locations.
Visa, MasterCard and Discover have also been bringing wrapped motorhomes to college campuses for years, signing up students and helping them to establish credit with great success.
“From concept to completion, Allstar’s professional, experienced staff will handle the logistics, planning and execution of your campaign to ensure that your brand gets its ‘rock star’ on,” says Tischler.

Despite the recent climb in oil prices, RV travel is expected to reach record levels this year, according to Florida RV rental dealer Allstar Coaches.
“It’s common for us to see a spike in sales during the summer, however this year we’re seeing dramatic increases in bookings all the way through December and into 2012,” CEO Rob Tischler stated in a news release.
Allstar operates a fleet of luxury motorhomes which are available for rental nationwide at strategically located depots in seven states. Earlier this year, the company opened two additional Florida locations and by the end of next year expects to open as many as 12 franchised locations across the country. “Since Florida RV rentals account for almost 40% of our overall sales, it was only natural to expand our operations there first,” added Tischler.
Industry insiders believe that the increased demand in RV travel is being driven by a rebounding economy combined with an educated consumer base that’s growing tired of the runaway costs, uncomfortable security screening and long delays associated with flying.
Adam Froman, a self-employed RVer who runs his graphics business from home, says that “Traveling in an RV equipped with satellite technology allows me the freedom to run my business while out on the road.”
When asked whether fuel prices would affect his travel plans, Froman said, “I’ll spend less traveling in the RV and preparing my own meals than I would by paying airfare, hotel and meals on a traditional trip and since I don’t have to deal with crowded airports; my vacation starts the minute I pull out of the driveway.”
Television networks and film crews have also taken notice of the RV industry, cashing in on its growing popularity. HGTV’s annual RV show is among the most watched specials on the network. Allstar Coaches was featured on ABC’s “The Bachelor” when Jake Pavelka and nine hopeful bachelorettes embarked on a RV trip up the California coast.

“People are beginning to understand that the benefits of RV travel far outweigh the costs and that’s helping to drive record sales,” says Tischler, “The price of oil isn’t slowing us down at all.”
Allstar Coaches has locaitons in Florida, California, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Nevada. For detailed pricing and information, call (866) 838-4465 or visit Allstar Coaches online at www.allstarcoaches.com.
Florida RV rentals are approaching the highest levels since 2006, according to a news release from Florida-based RV rental dealer Allstar Coaches.
“Compared to the past few years, RV rentals across the board are way up and at the highest levels we’ve seen in quite some time,” said CEO Rob Tischler. Allstar Coaches is also reporting substantial increases in reservations for its California, New Jersey and Pennsylvania RV rentals. “We haven’t been this booked this early in the season since 2006.”
To meet the high demand, Allstar Coaches is actively searching for additional rental units to increase its California, Pennsylvania and Florida RV rental fleets.
Allstar Coaches manages and rents a fleet of privately owned, luxury Class A motorhomes. RV owners place their vehicles into Allstar’s fleet program which is designed to cover the costs of ownership. Depending on the particular model, RVs enrolled in the program can generate monthly incomes of up to $2,000-$3,000 for their owners. Active full time units are generally booking about 24-26 weeks per year. Allstar’s fleet program offers current and potential owners the ability to have their RVs pay for themselves and still capitalize on all the benefits of ownership.

Allstar Coaches, Florida’s leading RV rental dealer, announced Wednesday (Feb. 3) that it is reducing rates for Florida RV rentals during the months of February, March and April.
In addition, Allstar Coaches is offering all-inclusive Florida RV rental specials and reduced delivery fees for Super Bowl XLIV in Miami, Sebring and the upcoming Daytona 2010 Speedweek, according to a news release.
“With Super Bowl now upon us and the Daytona 500 right around the corner, we’re excited to be able to offer customers our lowest rates ever on our Florida RV rentals,” said Rob Tischler, president and CEO of Allstar Coaches.
Allstar Coaches has been fortunate to have become extremely busy since the company was featured on the “road trip” episodes of ABC’s “The Bachelor” last month, he said, In order to keep up with the high demand from the Miami Super Bowl and upcoming Daytona races, the company moved in additional units from its other locations.
“Since bringing in the extra inventory, we have more coaches available for rental and are able to really cut our prices,” added Tischler. Local delivery and pickup for all Broward and Palm Beach RV renters is also offered at no charge. The company says it has no plans to scrap its competitive price policy.
Allstar Coaches offers Florida RV rentals from its Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach locations. With additional locations opening this year in Orlando and Tampa, Allstar Coaches is poised to become Florida’s largest RV rental dealer.
Allstar also has rental locations in California, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Arizona and Nevada and has the ability to deliver a luxury RV to virtually any doorstep in America.
Editor’s Note: The RV industry gains some appealing airtime tonight (Jan. 25) as ABC’s “The Bachelor” takes bachelor, Jake Pavelka, and the nine remaining contestants in two motorcoaches provided by Allstar Coaches on a journey up the California Coast. Entertainment Tonight News provided this synopsis of the episode, which will televised at 8 p.m. EST.
It’s road-trip time on tonight’s episode of “The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love,” when the nine remaining ladies pile into two RVs and head up the California coast. Destination: a rendezvous with Jake Pavelka.
First stop is a vineyard in Santa Ynez where Gia gets the opportunity to prove to Jake that a girl from the Big Apple and a boy from Denton, Texas, can have chemistry. Gia is nervous because if Jake doesn’t give her a rose at the end of their date, she automatically goes home. No rose ceremony for her.
The next morning, “The Bachelor” caravan heads to Pismo Beach, where they set up camp on the beach. Six of the remaining nine women join Jake for a day of dune buggying and sand surfing. Jake comes to the rescue when Vienna and Jessie get their buggy trapped in the sand. Then Corrie surprises everyone when she tackles Jake to grab some extra time with “The Bachelor.”
That night, the group checks into the Madonna Inn, famous for its outrageous décor. A rose is at stake and the competition heats up, but Vienna’s strategy to have the last memorable moment of the night with Jake doesn’t sit well with the other women.
The last stop is Big Sur, where the campers set up among the towering redwoods. Two of the girls go on a date with Jake, but only one of them can receive a rose. The other will go home.
But the real challenge comes at the end of the trip when Jake decides to stand by his promise not to lead any of the women on — and he shocks them by sending home more women than necessary at the rose ceremony. When the dust clears, only five remain.
The nine women who start the episode are:
- Ali, 25, an advertising account manager from Williamstown, Mass.
- Ashleigh, 25, an account manager from North Potomac, Md.
- Corrie, 23, a wardrobe consultant from Kissimmee, Fla.
- Ella, 30, a hair stylist from Lafollette, Tenn.
- Gia, 26, a swimsuit model from New York, N.Y.
- Jessie, 25, a cosmetic sales manager from Oakville, Ontario, Canada.
- Kathryn, 25, a corporate flight attendant from Lexington, Ky.
- Tenley, 25, a college admissions representative from Newberg, Ore.
- Vienna, 23, a marketing representative from Sanford, Fla.
Allstar Coaches will be accommodating a group date on the fourth episode of ABC TV’s “The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love.”
The episode, to air Jan. 25, will cover a special group date where the entire cast takes the adventure on the road with the newest Bachelor, Jake Pavelka, according to a news release. Left heartbroken on the last season of “The Bachelorette,” Jake is now ready to give love one more try.
“The Bachelor” has selected Allstar Coaches to bring its hit series out on the road for a week-long RV adventure packed with gorgeous women and some of the country’s most amazing and picturesque locations. With all eyes on their prize, these beautiful bachelorettes will stop at nothing to capture the heart of Bachelor Jake Pavelka.
“The cast and crew on the show were fantastic,” said Rob Tischler, owner and CEO of Allstar Coaches. Both Tischler and co-owner Robert Lemon also doubled up as drivers for the trip.
“It was a tough job,” joked Lemon, “but someone had to do it. ‘The Bachelor’ is one of ABC’s most successful shows and we’re proud to be a part of it.”
ABC’s “The Bachelor” has a reputation for enjoying the finer things in life.
“We first contacted Allstar Coaches because they had the nicest RV rentals we could find,” said Herbert Weatherford, one of the producers of the show. “After working closely with them in the planning stages and especially after a week out on the road, we knew we made the best choice. Allstar’s staff was great and fit in seamlessly with our crew. Their expertise in RV travel and operations were invaluable to this production, and quite frankly we could not have pulled this off without them.”
“We were sworn to secrecy about where we traveled to and especially who went along for the ride, but I can say that we went to some of the wildest places imaginable,” says Tischler.
“And some of the things we could overhear from the back of the bus were enough to make these grown men blush,” adds Lemon.
