RV Rental California

Renting an RV in California

Renting an RV is perfect if you’ve dreamed of touring California
in an RV, but thought you couldn’t because of the cost or hassle of owning an RV. RVs allow
you travel where you want and when you want from the comfort of your substitute home. No
hotels needed.

The most popular type of rented RV is the class-C motor home. It is easy to drive and has
beds, a toilet, shower, heat and air-conditioning, a refrigerator, and a microwave. Folding
camping trailers, travel trailers, and truck trailers are also popular. You can rent your RV
one-way or two-way, and you can ask for a discount if you’re renting it for the long haul.
Some RV rentals also provide a fly-and-drive package so you can fly into California and
then rent the RV.

Rental companies exist throughout California, but you’ll probably have the best luck around
Los Angeles or San Francisco. Searching the Internet is probably the easiest way to find a
Californian RV rental agency. KOA, or Kampgrounds of America, provides a list of its
preferred RV rental agencies in California, by city, on its Web site.

                                                  Rental rates in California are cheapest between November
                                                  and March and in October with prices starting at around $63
                                                  a day for over 40 days. Prices per day decrease the longer
                                                  you rent them, but increase with the quality of the RV. The
                                                  most expensive time to rent an RV in California is between
                                                  late June and early September with prices starting at
                                                  around $117 a day for over 40 days.

                                                  Before you set out for adventure in California, find parks that
                                                  will let you park your RV there. Maps are available for sale
                                                  on the Internet and KOA also provides a list. Don’t be afraid
                                                  to shop for the best bargain and ask for all details about
                                                  mileage fees, insurance, and other extra fees you might not
                                                  expect. The more you plan ahead, the less worry during your
                                                  trip through California.
