How It Calculates the Results

The calculator uses a base rate of $0.50 per mile per pound and applies a type-specific coefficient to adjust for the type of RV being shipped. If insurance is opted in, an additional cost of 0.1 per mile per pound is added. Additionally, it calculates the fuel cost based on the distance, fuel efficiency, and an average fuel cost of $3.00 per gallon.


This calculator provides an estimate only. Actual costs may vary based on specific conditions and service provider rates. The fuel cost is calculated based on an average fuel price and may not reflect real-time fluctuations in fuel prices. The coefficients used for different RV types are generalized and may not account for unique considerations of individual RV models.
