Pros & Cons Of Camper Vans And Class C RV Rentals
RV rentals make sense if the nomad lifestyle is calling your name. But the pros and cons of camper vans and Class C RV rentalsâ€”the two most common types of RVs you can bookâ€”can be overwhelming if youâ€™re in unfamiliar territory. Hereâ€™s a closer look that can help you decide and get on the road with confidence.
When searching for RV rentals, youâ€™ll find plenty of small to mid-size RVs like camper vans and Class C RV rentals. Their small footprint makes it easy for RV newbies to jump into the lifestyle. They often have better fuel efficiency than a Class A motorhome, driving and maneuvering is easier for a novice behind the wheel, and campsite location choices are greater too. Campervans and Class C motorhomes let you go more places, with less money and hassle than bigger RVs.
But as the saying goes, thereâ€™s always a catch. Book RV rentals without examining the pros and cons of the unit you picked out, and you may hate RVing forever. Hereâ€™s how to take the RV road trip of your dreams by choosing the best RV rental for your needs.

These conveniences were great but modern camper van rentals make my van look positively prehistoric.
