Motorhome, Camper and RV Rentals Des Moines, IA

Des Moines, Iowa

Getting an RV rental in Des Moines is an easy way to make any vacation more exciting. Not only are motorhome rentals in Des Moines excellent forms of transportation, they supply many of the comforts of home. Whether you’re visiting the animals at the Blank Park Zoo or sampling wine at the Jasper Winery, it's all made better when you're happy, well-rested and ready to go thanks to your RV.

Before you jump right into renting, it's helpful to learn about the classes of RV that are available. RVshare helps you rent all three RV classes and provides information on each to ensure that you can find the best motorhome to meet your needs.

At the top of the list is the Class A RV. These are the biggest campers you can find, and they usually have enough space to sleep around eight adults. Equipped with plenty of gadgets and electronics, showers and a full kitchen setup, you wouldn't be wrong to mistake a Class A RV for a small house instead of a vehicle. The downside to all that size is that they generally get pretty low gas mileage, plus they can take time to learn to drive if you're not used to oversized vehicles.

The Class B RV is the smallest of the trio, and they have enough room to comfortably house four people. These might lack some perks you’ll find in a Class A, but they should have a basic kitchen setup and a bathroom. The exact floor plan can vary by model. On the plus side, the Class B’s smaller size means better mileage as well as a lower overall cost.

The Class C RV is more compact than a Class A but still quite large and luxurious. They provide room for around six people at a time, and you can expect a high degree of enjoyment while riding in one of these; many are equipped with similar amenities to the Class A. These RVs tend to be easy to drive because they're built onto the chassis of a commercial truck.

Beyond those motorhome options, you might also wish to consider trailer campers. Rather than a full vehicle, these are live-in trailers that are pulled behind a powerful truck or SUV. Given that they're often cheaper to rent than an RV, renting a camper trailer might be the way to go if you already have a truck to use for towing.

A pop-up camper rental in Des Moines is a smaller type of trailer with collapsible canvas walls. Their construction dramatically decreases their overall weight, giving you improved gas mileage. For larger parties, you could rent a fifth wheel trailer. Comparable in size to a Class A, the fifth wheel is decked out in a way that surpasses most motorhomes. In order to pull it, you'll need an exceptionally powerful truck with an in-bed hitch system.

RV Campgrounds Near Des Moines, Iowa

An RV campground gives you a safe place to park at night, and you’ll be surrounded by other RVers looking to have some fun on vacation. There's a ton of great options to choose from when selecting a place to stay, but one of the best RV campgrounds in Des Moines is definitely Griff’s Valley View RV Park & Campground. Renting a space in one of their lots gets you access to electrical hookups, strong Wi-Fi and cell signals, laundry facilities and a playground for kids.

Another place to check out is Sleepy Hollow RV Park & Campground in nearby Oxford. It’s a family-friendly RV park that has a well-maintained beach on-site.

US National & State Parks Nearby Des Moines

Visiting a national park is one of the best ways to spend your RV vacation. It's the easiest way to make the most out of your camper rentals in Des Moines. Luckily, neighboring South Dakota is home to Badlands National Park, which you won't want to skip.

At Badlands National Park, hiking, cycling, climbing, animal watching or just enjoying the unforgettable sights are all things to do, and more structured activities, like the annual Astronomy Festival, put on by the rangers, can also be fun. The weather in this area is frequently unpredictable, ranging from sweltering highs to frigid lows, depending on the season, so be sure to check the weather report before heading out. 

RV Storage Facilities in Des Moines, Iowa

While you're away from your RV, there are a number of things that could happen to it, from damage to a freak accident. It’s easy to understand that leaving your motorhome unattended for long periods of time is inadvisable. If you need to be away from it, you can rent some space at a secure RV storage facility.

These storage facilities give you a safe space to park your RV. Security cameras and on-staff workers ensure that no one but you can get access to your RV. Places like Three Rivers RV Storage and Mega Storage are both examples of these types of businesses in and around Des Moines. They offer 24-hour access and convenient assistance for anything you might need while you’re renting your space.

Dumpstations Near Des Moines

A dumpstation gives RV drivers a safe and sanitary place to remove collected waste, which is a necessary process for anyone on the road. Understandably, it's imperative that you know where one might be when things are starting to get full.

Luckily, most dumpstations work in conjunction with campgrounds or storage facilities, meaning you should have no trouble finding one. Cherry Glen Campground and Iowa State Campgrounds are just two examples of available dumpstations. They offer free dumping for guests and charge fees as low as $10 for non-guests.

It’s Almost Independence Day, Take Your Family on an RV Trip!

When planning your Des Moines RV vacation, you'll quickly learn that there's no better time to be in the city than Independence Day. There's always plenty to do around this time of year, with one of the highlights being the Bourbon Street Parade. Fun, food, drinks and live music are all capped off with an amazing fireworks display, making for an unforgettable party that you'll want to go back to every year.

Popular Tourist Attractions for an RV Rental Des Moines

There's plenty to see and do while you’re RVing around Des Moines. Check out the Capitol Building or Terrace Hill for an insider look at local history and government. Depending on the time of your visit, you could attend the Iowa State Fair and live it up with plenty of food and rides. The State Historical Museum is also a fun place to be, giving you some in-depth education on the history of Iowa.

Sports and Entertainment Near Des Moines

Sports fans will find tons to love when vacationing in Des Moines. Head down to Principal Park for a Cubs game or the Wells Fargo Arena for a Barnstormers football game or a Wolves basketball game. Beyond sports, there's plenty more to entertain you, particularly the Des Moines Performing Arts Center, where you can catch the latest shows off Broadway.

Highways in or Near Des Moines, Iowa

Des Moines is connected by many state and national highways to make getting around the city easy. I-235 runs straight through the heart of the capital from the west before heading north. It intersects with US 69 as it travels north to south through the middle of the city.
