      I used to rent Garcias, then used a BearVault for multiple years and last year ended up with an Bearikade. I'd have saved money if I had started with the Bearikade. 

      As others have pointed out, however, you could always buy the Bearikade and then sell it when you got back. There's a really good resale market for the Bearikade. I suspect not much for the BearVault and almost none for the Garcia.

      I'm still fond of the BearVault though. This bear worked mine over pretty good before giving up

      I think the BearVault is better than the Garcia for the reasons you mention. If you buy a used BearVault, make sure you get the current models with the double tab stops. It was the older single-stop design that the bears got into.
