Dayton RV rentals come in many sizes and classes, and you can find towable trailers as well as self-powered motorhomes. The variety makes it possible to tailor the RV you rent to the size of the group you're traveling with and to your tow vehicle for a trailer.
Towable RV trailers are a good option if you have a truck or an SUV with enough horsepower to pull them. The smallest are compact pop-up and folding trailers that serve as sleeping space for one or two people. Travel trailers are designed for a couple of people to use as living space on the road. They vary quite a bit in size. Toy haulers are another type of trailer designed for travel with recreational vehicles. The largest trailers are called fifth wheel trailers. These are designed for long-term camping with accommodations like a kitchen and dining area.
Motorhomes have been standardized by RV manufacturers into three classes: A, B, and C. Class A motorhomes are built on tour bus frames to accommodate groups like sports teams or music bands as they travel across the country. Class B motorhomes are built on van frames and get the moniker "campervan" as a result. They are the smallest class of motorhome. Class C motorhomes are the classic campers built on truck frames. They're easier to drive than class A RVs, but they have enough living space for a few people.
