When deciding which RV to rent for your summer vacation to Louisiana, it's important to consider the vehicle best suited for your space needs and your driving comfort. You can narrow down your search by sorting out which class of RV you want to rent.
Functionally, you need to decide whether you want an RV that you drive or an RV that you tow. Class A, Class B, and Class C motorhome rentals in Louisiana all have engines and require a driver behind the wheel. Standard travel trailers, fifth wheels, and pop up campers need to be towed with a capable vehicle, such as a truck or SUV.
