Are you more of an epic adventurer, checking National Parks off your bucket list left and right? Or do you prefer to explore closer to home, scoping out the hottest restaurants and museums, then spending the night at a state park cozied up in your RV? No matter what your travel preferences, an RV is the perfect way to enjoy seeing new places, and sometimes rediscovering your own backyard.

- Beachside Glamper
- Budget-Friendly BLM Camper

Local and Laid Back
The local and laid back group loves to take an adventure, but you want to stay close to home. Renting an RV is a great way to rediscover your own state, and makes your usual haunts seem special again. Check out our Local Guides to get an idea for how to spend time in your own city. Then book your RV camping spot at a State Park near you, and get ready to feel like you’re far, far away from home.
National Park Adventurer
For many, visiting a National Park is the ultimate adventure. The diverse landscapes appeal to all levels, whether you want to crest a steep mountain or meander through a flat forest, there’s something for everyone. Our in-depth National Park guides show you where to stay, what to do, the best trails and more. Plus, many National Parks are dog friendly, so don’t forget to bring your furry friends along!
Find Yourself in the Forest
Does forest bathing sound like the best way to refresh before the mayhem of the summer season begins? Then staying in a National Forest might be just where you belong this spring. Our National Forest guides show you where to camp, activities to try nearby, and of course, the hottest hiking trails.
You like the idea of camping, per se, but the tent? Bugs? Sleeping on the ground? Not so much. And you firmly believe that a vacation is not a vacation without a beach. Luckily, beachside glamping offers the best of both worlds! Enjoy the day of sand and surf, then retire for the evening in your comfy AIR CONDITIONED camper where you can cook a meal, enjoy some wine and wind down in style. Find the top beaches in your state.
Budget-Friendly BLM Camper
You’re looking to get truly off-grid, and the gorgeous Bureau of Land Management sites across the U.S offer just that. Enjoy RV or tent camping under the stars everywhere from highly developed campgrounds to the wild backcountry. Whether you’re hoping for a truly rugged camping adventure or something a little more luxurious, there is a campsite that will provide you a truly unique and relaxing vacation. Plus, many of these sites are free, offering a budget-friendly travel option.
Front and Center
You finally realized that “roughing it” after sweating at a concert all day and stomping in the mud is no longer your scene. Don’t worry, there IS a better way! After a long day of blazing sun, loud music, and sticky crowds, there is no better escape than the cool confines of your RV. Sit down, send a text, TAKE A SHOWER, make some food — all just feet away from where the action is. We cover the top events for RVing, from music festivals to Nascar to state fairs and everything in between.
Do you fit into any of these archetypes? Perhaps you want to go educational and explore some National Sites? Or maybe time on the road is what you’re after, and you’ve begun researching the route for your upcoming road trip. Sometimes we just need a change of scenery, and visiting a local waterfall or landmark will do the trick. Whether you’re a glamper or just want to spend some time on a quiet lake with your fishing pole, an RV rental can get you up close to where you want to be.
