Orlando Southwest KOA Partners with Apollo Motorhome Rental Depot

Tue Jul 11, 2017

Starting this June, Orlando Southwest KOA Holiday has partnered with Apollo Motorhome Holidays, based out of Brisbane, Australia, to become an RV rental depot for the Florida travel market.

Integrating the Apollo rental services with KOA camping offers Florida guests an added benefit of pick-up and delivery. Campers can pick up and drop off the rig at their first stop or last stop along the way. Guests can choose from a variety of rigs that suit their needs ranging from a camper van called the “Apollo Tourer” to a 33-foot motorhome called the “Apollo Wanderer.”

“RVs and KOA are made for each other,” Kampgrounds of America Vice President of Company-Owned Properties Terry Shade says. "It made perfect sense for us to partner with a reputable RV rental company like Apollo, because it makes renting an RV and camping easier for our guests.”

Guests can reserve an Apollo RV at the Orlando location at www.apollorv.com/ or by calling Orlando Southwest at 863-424-1880.
