An RV rental in Eugene is a great way to make your vacation a fun one, and RVshare is there to make sure it's also a simple one. Providing access to all manner of RVs within the area, we can connect you with affordable renters who want to work for you.
As easy as the Eugene RV rental process can be, there are still some things of which you should be aware of. In particular, you should think about which class of RV will most properly fit your needs. With three distinct options to choose from, each with their own pros and cons, you shouldn't be making this choice without some consideration.
If you're looking for camper rentals in Eugene with all the bells and whistles, you should go with a Class A. The largest of the classes by far, Class A is typically outfitted with the latest technology, a full kitchen and plenty more to keep you in the lap of luxury while on the road. Consequently, their large size does tend to make them hard to control on the road. Plus, they get poor mileage.
Class B RVs are the smallest type of RV. While they usually possess many of the same amenities you can find in Class A, they're scaled down to fit within the smaller vehicle. In addition to a lower price tag, Class B usually gets comparatively good mileage for an RV and gets around much easier without so much vehicle to haul.
Stripped down to just the basics, Class C is more function over form. While it likely has a basic kitchen setup and some quality of life features, that’s about all you can expect. It's also around the middle in terms of size, being larger than a Class B but smaller than a Class A. On the plus side, the fact it's built into a truck chassis makes it the easiest to control overall, making it an ideal RV for new drivers.
Your options don't end here, however. In addition to RVs, you can also rent a variety of pull-behind trailers that offer the same comforts of motorhome rentals in Eugene while still allowing you to drive your preferred truck or SUV to haul it around.
Just like RVs, there are multiple types of trailers you can choose from. Named for its ability to "pop up" or fold down as needed, a pop-up camper rental in Eugene might be ideal for those who have vehicles that aren't quite as powerful as the lightness of the canvas walls help reduce the strain on a truck's engine.
For an experience closer to the traditional RV, you could try the travel trailer. Inside, they're about the same as what you could expect from a Class B or C RV. The only major difference is their status as a trailer instead of a stand-alone vehicle.
The Class A vehicle of towable trailers, fifth wheels are enormous trailers that are steeped in luxury and have tons of features and amenities for the people lucky enough to ride inside them. They're extremely heavy, though, requiring a powerful truck with an in-bed hitch in order for them to move anywhere.
While not something you can live inside, the toy hauler is also worth mentioning as a means of moving your things around. Attached to the back of your vehicle, they haul things like jet skis or ATVs around that would be difficult to tow for most cars, enabling you to bring them with you on your vacation.
One of the many perks of RVing around Eugene is getting to stay at an RV campground when you’re not on the road. While the RV does give you the ability to stop and sleep just about anywhere, it's a lot more fun and safer when you're in a community of like-minded people filled with its own assortment of activities.
If you're looking for one of the best RV campgrounds in Eugene to visit while on your vacation, you definitely want to check out Armitage Park. Free Wi-Fi, cable TV, a dog park and sports courts are just a few of its great features. This is in addition to its location, which puts you right next to the I-5 highway that can you take all across Eugene.
If you're planning to RV to a US national park on your vacation, then you're definitely in luck. Oregon is home to the beautiful Crater Lake National Park, a temperate and breathtaking natural area situated around the titular Crater Lake, the deepest of its kind in the United States.
Hiking, cycling, and skiing are all popular activities at this park. There's never a shortage of things to do over the expansive area that Crater Lake National Park comprises, especially when the rangers are there to guide you via snowshoe hikes or snowmobile tours.
Leaving your RV unattended is a gamble that gets riskier the longer you're away. Instead of risking theft, damage, or loss while you're out enjoying your vacation, rent a space in an RV storage facility, and let someone else handle security for a change.
Awbrey Lane RV & Boat Storage and Eugene RV & Boat Storage are two solid options for your storage needs. Each facility offers plenty of parking space outdoors, both under a cover and in garages for your RV, plus 24-hour access and a myriad of security features to keep your ride safe and sound while you're not there.
The waste you make in your RV doesn't just magically disappear, so in order to have a successful vacation, you'll need to use a dumpstation to empty out your collection tank in a safe and hygienic way. Knowing where you can find some ahead of time greatly simplifies your journey.
Many dumpstations operate in conjunction with campgrounds or storage facilities, Awbrey Lane also includes a wash station to hose down your ride after the fact. You could also look to the Wastewater Treatment Plant that has a space set up for RVs and other large vehicles to dump in an efficient manner.

Baseball fans can see the Eugene Emeralds playing at PK Park during the season, taking on other minor league teams. There are also the various wineries around Eugene, such as the King Estate, Sarver and Silvan Ridge, where you can sample some fine beverages.

Oregon Route 569 is one of the big ones, running east to west for around 10 miles and connecting Eugene to Springfield. There's also Oregon Route 126 that, in addition to merging into various other roads along the coast and the western and central areas of Oregon, also connects to the I-5 highway.
