Do I need to return my rental RV with a full tank?

All rentals must be returned with the same amount of fuel, this is normally with a full tank, but some suppliers may provide same to same so if it is half full you only need to return with half a tank etc. Confirm this before setting off.

Are there RV rentals available with unlimited mileage?

In general, unlimited miles is not available in the USA. On the results page, you can check under the campervan listing details to see if this option is available with any of the providers. If not, you'll be able to view the additional rates for extra mileage. 

Renting an RV without free miles is a fair policy, as you will only pay for what you actually use and will not be supplementing someone else's rental. To offer free miles the companies would have to increase the daily rate and that would be unfair to those that will not be clocking up a high mileage

How far in advance should I book RV hire?

Avoid being disappointed by booking 6 months in advance for the months of July to August

The last piece of advice is to get your one RV booking confirmed before booking flights and hotels.
