Renting An RV For Camping

These days the options for camping are almost unlimited, with so many types and styles of vehicles, motorhomes, trailers, even tents.

RV Camping

I suppose because I have always come to a cottage for summer vacations is the reason I have always had a bit of a fascination with the other side of camping. That is traveling around the country RV Camping, in a recreational vehicle, (RV) such as a motorhome or truck and camper.

I always picture myself sitting up the cab of a big recreational camping vehicle, like a motorhome, singing Tommy Hunter’s signature song, “I Am A Traveling Man“.

Renting An RV

One option is renting an RV and going RVing to give it a try before you make a decision to buy an RV. Renting an RV is an excellent way to see if you will enjoy driving one, backing it up and navigating city streets etc. The best part is, renting an RV is not as expensive as you might think, and when you factor in the savings on hotel rooms and restaurant meals you won’t have to buy, a recreational vehicle can become even more affordable.
