rv-pro.com SEPTEMBER 2014 • RV PRO • 89 means less money is tied up in inventory and he can add or decrease his fleet size as market conditions warrant. While his business doesn't necessarily have brand new motorhomes in stock, Williams says many RV owners from across Florida and even far away states look to rent out their units, so he can be selective about the RVs his business stocks. He typically looks to rent newer, large Class A diesel pushers and higher- end gas motorhomes along with nice Class C units, which he can rent from $210 a night to as much as $555 a night, usually with a three-night minimum. And while all of the units he rents could be considered at least somewhat upscale, offering a variety of RVs is useful given that Walt Williams runs Suncoast RV Rental and Management with his parents, Wallace and Marlene, and his 23-year-old son, Warren. The Tampa-based business succeeds in a competitive market by catering to customers and offering services and products other rental businesses won't, such as renting out grills, tables and chairs and even satellite dishes. Warren Williams shows off one of the Tailgater portable antennas that Suncoast rents. The antenna is one of the most popular extras that Suncoast makes available for renters to enhance their RVing experience.
