Love RV camping but want to leave yours behind? Try an RV rental! Most are fully outfitted and already in an RV park so you can enjoy the camping without the hassle. You’ll probably save some gas money, too!
Rental RVs are trending
This is a new trend that is fast gaining popularity. People who have an RV and those that don’t are booking these fully furnished RVs, some new and some vintage, and driving their car or flying to an RV park. Think Airbnb for RVs. They’re perfect for a family camping getaway with no major RV investment, maintenance, storage or RV repairs. Why pay for an RV when only going camping for a week or two a year?
Bring the extended family
I have been seeing a lot of extended family and friend gatherings at campgrounds recently. RVers can rent a campsite for themselves and other family members can rent a site with an RV on it. A lot of the folks that invested in the RV lifestyle during the pandemic are finding out that they might like to camp but transporting and setting up an RV is just not for them. Renting an RV setup in an RV park could be just the solution.
Vintage RV rentals
Nostalgia is at its best in these restored vintage trailers. This is so popular now it is relatively easy to find RV parks that offer them. Check these out or just Google “vintage trailer rental” and find more.

Not so vintage
Vintage not quite your style? There is a growing number of campgrounds that have stationary trailers to rent. They don’t move, just the guests do.
Airbnb for rental RVs
You can even search on Airbnb for an RV at variety of locations. Who knew? Just do the same due diligence that you would when renting a house. Check out the pictures carefully for cleanliness and condition, and read the reviews of the RV and also the RV park.
