“Sh*tter’s Full”

MckMama is giving away a week-long RV vacation to a reader and their family as long as it comes in under $1000:

The crack research staff at MWoPBlog.com did a little hunting for RV rentals. Using the smallest, and thus cheapest, RV possible this is the quote we got to rent an RV for a random non-holiday week during the summer. We used Minnesota as our point of reference since, well you know …

Please note that doesn’t include everything. Like the generator:

Or any cleaning that might be required or emptying the holding tank:

Or any bedding or kitchen utensils:

Or the leveler needed to level the RV so the generator and the refrigerator actually generate and refrigerate:

And unless you’re planning to vacation in a Wally World parking lot, well, it’s going to cost you too:


  • RV Rental for 3 people including tax, deposit and mileage: $1727.65
  • Generator: $3 per hour
  • Possible Charges for Cleaning & Holding Tank: $300
  • Kitchen Utensils & Bedding for 3 people: $250
  • Leveler: Unknown
  • Campground Parking: $10 – $50 a night

That’s a mighty fine free vacation you might win!
