THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT RENTING AN RV, VAN OR TRAILER
Figuring out which type of RV to choose for your trip can be difficult! Here are some things to know about the types of RVs you can rent to help make your decision a bit easier!
Class A (motorhome) RV Rental
Class A's are a type of motorhome and they fall into the biggest class of motorhomes that are available for rent. They typically range in size from around 26 feet all the way to 40+ feet. Class A motorhome rentals are ideal for big groups that are doing long-distance trips. The longer and bigger the RV, the more comfortable your journey will be but you have to consider size as the difficulty when trying to park
Things to consider when renting a class A RV:
- Size restrictions at campgrounds
- Road size/height restrictions - RVs longer than 30 feet may not be able to handle twisty roads and tight turns. Low bridges and overpasses may also be a concern, depending on the height of the RV.
- Ability of the drive to handle a big, long, heavy vehicle.
Class C (motorhome) RV Rental
Class C RVs are the most commonly rented RVs in the industry. These are the RVs that you see zipping around most of the national parks around the country. This is for several reasons, the most important being that they provide the most sleeping space in the shortest size. This is because of their amazing overhead bunk sleeping area that can comfortably sleep 2 adults and sometimes 2 adults and a child. The longer Class Cs will also have a bed in the rear as well along with the overhead bunk.
Class Cs are easy to drive, very similar to a U-haul or a passenger van. They're built on light truck chassis and not on heavy-duty large chassis like the class As.
Class B (Van/luxury van) Camper Rental
Class B vans very easy to drive are probably the best type of rental if you have a small group and want the freedom to be able to go anywhere and fit anywhere while on your road trip. They are as easy to drive as a car most times and still offer all of the functionalities of an RV. They'll have a small kitchen, bathroom and sleeping area and enough of the amenities to make your road trip super fun.
A class B rental is recommended for groups of 2-3 adults or 2 kids and 2-3 children, depending on the layout of the sleeping arrangement and your love for each other. If you're planning on driving to many different destinations.
Travel Trailer / Camper Rental (tow behind)
Travel trailer rentals are the most popular rentals if you have a vehicle with a tow hitch that can tow. One of the best benefits of a tow-behind trailer is that you can get to your destination, leave the trailer at the campsite, and then go explore the area in your vehicle. This gives you the best of both worlds, camping space, and freedom to explore.
Things to consider:
- Backing up a trailer can be difficult if you aren't familiar with it.
- Set up time can be longer. This may be a concern if you are moving around a lot. Hitching up, unhitching and leveling can take some time.
- Travel trailers may be better if you are heading to one destination and planning on staying for a bit.
