When you begin planning a road trip, it helps to know the different types of available RV rentals in Indiana because it will help you better plan for your adventure. You can find different RV classes and trailers on RVshare, and since this platform allows you to rent directly from a private owner, you can find out about the specific amenities and attachments of an RV or trailer.
There are several different types of RVs that you can rent. Class A RVs look like large tour buses and have a vertical front. They are outfitted with state-of-the-art furnishings, appliances, and fixtures and have a spacious interior.
Class B RVs are the next in size and are generally simpler in every way, but they still have everything you would need, including a bathroom, refrigerator, and plenty of storage space.
Class C RVs are the smallest of the self-powered RVs. These camper rentals in Indiana are perfect for a couple and a pet, and they still have the basics you would need on the road. This type is the easiest to drive and the most fuel-efficient.
Fifth wheel trailers are the largest kind that can be towed and that require an in-bed truck tow hitch. They can be just as luxurious as Class A motorhome rentals in Indiana.
Travel trailers are the most common type of trailer you see, and with good reason. They offer enough space and all the amenities you need, and unlike a fifth wheeler, they most likely can be towed by a vehicle you already have sitting in your garage. These trailers are easier to pull and to maneuver than a fifth wheeler.
Pop-up camper rentals in Indiana are popular because of how easy they are to pull. They are light and fuel-efficient, and when you park, you can extend the sides and the roof, depending on the model, so that you have a comfortable space to call home.
Toy haulers are used to pull your large “toys,” such as a snowmobile, an ATV, or a motorbike.
