About the host, Open Road RV Rental LLC
Tracie Coker canceled the booking 3 days before departure. This is an automated posting.
Tracie was a very nice person. She has been very flexible in accommodating the trip changes we requested. She answered all our questions patiently. She went above and beyond in making sure that the vehicle is in good condition throughout our trip. A+. Highly recommended. Will rent again.
I think it would be nice if the owner had a video that renters could download and review before leaving. There is too much to "learn' before you leave. When asked how to turn on the TV, the owner could not get it to work but stated the battery was low and "all the owner's manual" were in a black box. As a renter, I don't want to spend my time on the road reading owner manuals. A short 2 page cheat sheet would be very helpful. It would eliminate late night phone calls to the owner. For example, one would think when you turn off the RV, the dash lights would turn off. Not the case. I feel the vehicle should be taken in to the Mercedes and clear the messages on the dash board that states the oil is low. I know I was told to ignore the message, but just what if... Then I was driving 70 mph, the bugs were hitting the windshield like hail and a message comes on. It states, " 16 starts remaining." I googled it and it appeared like the RV needed to be taken in for service. I texted Tracie who was very good at responding, she texted back, " Just go to a gas or truck stop and add a gallon of DEF." Really? It was difficult to even get diesel. Most stations was looking for a card that I was supposed to use , not a credit card. Some stations didn't have diesel, i.e. QT, Shell Gas. I would think the owner would place a gallon in the RV, just in case. Or, at least mention it. In NE, there was a road stop to check cars, I was asked for the insurance of the RV. Talking about scrambling though all her paperwork. I found one insurance that expired in 5/2002. Then, the officer asked me for the contract. I guess I am used to renting rent cars. They generally hand you the keys and your rental agreement. I certainly didn't pack that. My packing was focused on items for the bed, kitchen, bathroom and of course, your clothes. Some one pager with the keys, rental agreement and insurance should be handed to the renter of the RV. And, the NE officer tried to run the tags and could not find the owner. I tried to explain it belongs to Tracie Coker and that it was rented from a third party. Not a happy officer. That took over 1 hour. He had asked me to pull the RV to the side because I didn't have what the officer wanted. The RV handled good in the hills and wind. But, because I didn't understand all the details, turn the switch to use the water, then turn the switch off, turn on whatever for lights, I used nothing. I guess I could have driven my own SUV.
I apologize that you were not very happy with your rental. I tried to go over everything with you while you were here however, you had your own list of questions and you were not particularly interested in the other things that I was trying to explain to you. As far as the rental contract and the insurance I handed you a copy of both of those. I am still confused about the diesel issue. There are thousands upon thousands of diesel vehicles traveling the roads of the United States every single day. I have never had a hard time finding diesel fuel. As for the diesel exhaust fluid, it plainly states in my ad that if you are driving this across the country it is quite possible you will need to add this. Once again, not a hard thing to find. I have to say that I find it not quite fair for you to give me three stars because my vehicle is complicated.
We had an amazing trip. Tracie was great with answering any questions. We would absolutely rent from her again.
Super friendly experience and loved the way the RV drove. We will most likely be renting it again. Tracie was great!
Great Trip thank you Tracie
