If you don’t have your own motorhome, but are interested in taking a trip in one, RVshare can help. In fact, if you’re interested in purchasing a motorhome, renting one through RVshare first can be a great way to see if it’s a good fit for you. Whether you’re an RVing pro or this is your first trip, you can rent with RVshare knowing you’re in good hands.

With over 400 rentals in Amherst, VA, you can also choose from a wide variety of campers, RVs, and trailers to take on your vacation. If you’re used to traveling with amenities like showers, laundry, and sometimes even fireplaces, a Class A motorhome is going to suit you well. If you want to travel lighter, and with just one or two other people, a Class B campervan might be more your style - the smaller size means it’s easier to maneuver and you can camp just about anywhere. A Class C camper is the perfect blend of both of those classes - larger than a campervan, but with some of the amenities of a Class A motorhome. RVshare also has 5th wheel trailers, teardrop campers, toy haulers, and a variety of campers and trailers to rent.
Also, when you’re planning your trip, it’s helpful to know that most owners offer lower nightly rates the longer you rent your RV. If you rent for a week, or a month, you may get a lower rate per day for your trip. You can see the discount by clicking on the vehicle you’re interested in and scrolling down to the price breakdown where it will give you weekly and monthly rates.
You can also search for an RV to rent using other indicators like size, type of vehicle, price, or even the year the camper was built. You can look for pet-friendly motorhomes, or for motorhomes to take one-way or round-trip.
