Hired a 7-berth one in Boston for two of us!

Had to spend 30 minutes watching a video of how all the habitation stuff works. Then handed the keys. No questions asked about my ability to drive a LHD 30 footer.

100 dollar limit on fuel pumps meant that I couldn't fill the tank in one go ;-)

I've read some of the campsites in national parks get very busy and booking is essential.

Also, we weren’t allowed to hire within 24 hours of a transatlantic flight :D

Don’t know what their cut is but would possibly cost less without a middle man.
Could look at www.motorhomeexperts.co.uk who are agents for Cruise America.
We planned and booked ours through a travel agent which gives security in the event of problems, they handled flights hotels and RV booking.
Our last trip we did the whole lot ourselves which was no problem.
