Wally - The Winnebago Trend
Wally - The Winnebago Trend
Hi, we are Dufourfun Rentals “Growing up and traveling across the country for bike races, I fell in love with the idea of traveling by RV,” says RV owner Jerry Dufour. “Once I owned my first RV, it was my home as I traveled from Alabama to California and everywhere in-between all year while racing mountain bikes.” Not wanting to keep his passion for travel to himself, Jerry decided to start Dufourfun Rentals, his RV rental business on Outdoorsy. “I enjoy traveling by RV and all the opportunities it opens,” Dufour explains. “When I saw the opportunity to share that with others, I jumped on it!” Each positive rental experience makes Dufour feel increasingly more comfortable in his business. “I feel safe most importantly because the RV and camping community are great and respectful. Secondly, if anything were to happen, the insurance provided through Outdoorsy promotes my ease of mind.”
Felix is the her name, and what a gem she was with the care and cleanliness of her OWNERS. We are definitely renting again. Our trip was scheduled for 9/11 which is a day my Military family are reminded of our resilience. Upon arrival Jolie immediately gave us a formal greeting with politeness and courteous towards us.
My husband and I rented WALLY to go to an AKC Hunt test with our granddaughter. We had never rented an RV before. Jerry communicated with us quickly and had the RV ready when we arrived. He never rushed and went through step-by-step exactly how to set up and utilize the features of the unit. It was very clean, nicely appointed with everything you need---linens, towels, toiletries, cooking utensils, dishes, paper products, etc. We had no questions that went unanswered! WALLY was easy to drive and to park. We did the self-return on Sunday evening and texted back and forth with Jerry providing immediate responses. I highly recommend this RV and will very likely rent it again!
Wally was great and so was Jerry! Jerry was thorough in going over the RV with us before we took off and was easy to contact before and during the rental. The RV was very clean, drove well, and was very easy to park and set up. A 5 star experience. Thanks Jerry!
We had another great experience!
We had a great experience with Wally. Drove 1200 miles, round trip, and found it to be very comfortable, and a very nice ride. It was a perfect balance for us of size and easy handling. Jerry was excellent the whole way thru, communicating with us and making sure everything went well.
We had a wonderful time! Everything was explained well and it was easy to hook everything up. We will definitely be using “Fred” again.
Wally was better than advertised! Family loved the ride and accommodations. Wally's design provided excellent storage and convenience. Winnebago deserves some kudos on the layout. Rolled up on game day to a big tailgate party in Auburn and I bet we had to take 4 different groups of folks on a tour of Wally.
We had a great time with the RV, Jerry took time to show us everything he knew about it. I was very clean and neat.
Instantly available for questions. Extremely polite and well-versed RV owner. I could not be more pleased with this experience.
Fred was perfect for us and really enjoyed our trip to visit family in Texas. Jerry was great and answered all our questions.
Renting Fred from Jerry was a great experience! We rented Fred to check off an item on my wife’s bucket list. For 2 weeks in September 2019 we traveled from Birmingham, AL to Oklahoma City and on west to our final destination of the Grand Canyon and back. Along the way we traveled on and off old Route 66 (the “Mother Road”) to see various places of interest, both historic and scenic. Jerry kept in touch along the way to see that our trip progressed smoothly, always offering his services if there was anything he could help out with. Fred served all of our needs and made many lasting memories possible. Both my wife and I highly recommend Jerry and his fine Class C Motor Home “Fred”!

Jerry was very responsive to questions, however, had the pick up been more informative, there would not have been so many questions. The awning was broke, and that was not communicated to me till the day before pickup, the radio did not work. While not filthy, I would not say it was clean. The floors were swept, but dirty, and the cabin smelled like a hotel room that had been smoked in.
We had a very good experience. The owner was very friendly and communicated well. Very responsive and helpful. The rental was exactly as advertised. Would definitely rent again.
Previously on Outdoorsy I have rented a Class B and Class A. Fred is the first Class C, and I was impressed. Class A ... sometimes too Big, Class B, sometimes too small Fred... Just Right! We stayed at Henderson Beach State Park near Destin, FL for a week. 250 mile drive. Fred was easier to drive that I expected. Steers easier than my car. Decent turning radius so getting in and out of the Grocery store parking lot wasn't hard at all. Just had to pay a little more attention while in tight shopping center lots. I parked in two spots which wasnt an issue, just had to look and plan the exit so I didnt get blocked in. Having the generator, meant I was able to run the a/c while waiting on my wife shopping (slow poke). The a/c works great, stayed cool the first few days in 98 degree heat. I liked the U-shaped dining table seating. The two of us were hardly in each others way while both inside. In the class B I rented, my wife and I had to take turns being up and moving around or we were constantly in each others way. We are both over 6' tall. Fred the RV rides like a land yacht. Easy and smooth, smoother than some pickup trucks I've owned. Good visibility. Tracked well while traveling 65-70 on the interstate. We got hit by monsoon rain fronts and being up high I could still see and felt safe, put on the hazards and kept going slow, drove out of harms way rather than pull over. Doors stayed shut on the bumps. Overall a very good mid distance traveler. Runs regular unleaded, gas mileage was about what I expected. Jerry was Very good about communication during reservation, pickup, drop off. No issues there what so ever. Thank you Jerry, I would definitely rent Fred from you again.
This was exactly what we were hoping; Jerry was great to work with. He was informative and flexible with our flight arrival. Fred (our RV) was clean, comfortable and easy to drive and operate. Thanks, Jerry!
