Discover Bakersfield, CA in an RV!

You’re sure to enjoy yourself on an RV trip to Bakersfield, CA. RV vacations are a great way to make new memories, and Bakersfield, CA has many opportunities to do just that. You’ll also appreciate having your own space at the end of the day - spend your time adventuring, and then return to a familiar, comfortable spot to unwind and sleep in your own bed each night. A motorhome vacation also allows you to travel on your own schedule. If you’re in a spot you really enjoy, you can stay longer. If you’re feeling antsy and ready to move on - you can! The flexibility of motorhome travel is one of the great perks of this kind of vacation.

Don’t worry if you don’t own an RV either - RVshare can help. When you rent a motorhome with RVshare, you get all the fun of owning an RV without any of the worries. If you’re a new RVer, you can rent with RVshare knowing that their 24-hour roadside assistance means you always have someone at your disposal to answer any questions you might have while on the road. You can even look for RVs that offer setup and the owner will come and set up your RV at your campsite for you.

You have many vehicles to choose from when you rent with RVshare as well. If you’re traveling with a lot of people, or want your own shower and bathroom on the road, a Class A motorhome will likely fit you best. If you’re traveling light, and either solo or with one other person, a Class B motorhome may be all you need. A Class C camper could also be the perfect fit for you - it’s a good combination of the first two classes - smaller than a Class A motorhome, but with more perks and appliances than a Class B campervan. You can also choose from 5th wheel trailers, teardrop or A-frame trailers, toy haulers, and more.

As you plan your trip, also keep in mind that most owners give discounts the longer you rent. Renting for one night will be more per night than renting for a week, which will be more per night than renting for a month. You can find these discounts by clicking on the vehicle you like, then scrolling down to the price breakdown on the vehicle page.
