Iowa is full of rolling hills and wide-open spaces, which makes it a great place to explore by RV. When you are considering an Iowa RV rental, you are going to need to decide whether you want to get a motorhome that you can drive or a towable option that you can unhook. Some of the options that you can opt to rent include:

  • Class A – Consider a Class A RV when you want a bit of luxury during your vacation. This spacious option can sleep six to eight with ease.
  • Class B – This is a campervan that is designed to sleep two to four with ease. It is a smaller vehicle, so it is easier to drive and park.
  • Class C – The Class C RV can sleep eight to 10, and it is an excellent option for a large family to enjoy.
  • Travel Trailer – This is a towable camper option that comes in various sizes so that you can choose an RV that fits your needs.
  • Pop-up Camper – A pop-up camper rental in Iowa will sleep four to eight. Because of its design, you will be able to tow it with your truck or SUV, even if you are inexperienced with an RV.
