Montana is known for its rugged terrain and vast stretches of wilderness. Hiking in the Rockies and trekking through Glacier National Park are one-of-a-kind experiences. Fishing in Montana is another unique experience in the Big Sky Country, and anglers will be eager to cast their lines in Paradise Valley or Flathead Lake. Booking a Montana RV rental is an excellent way to ensure that you visit all the places you most want to see in this large state.
In order to find the best RV rental in Montana for your trip, it is important to understand the different types. Motorhomes are grouped into different classifications for size and features. Class A motorhomes are the largest RVs, and they are often customized with many amenities. If you are taking a long trip with lots of people, you will want to consider renting a Class A RV. Class C RVs are the next size down but are still very roomy. These types of motorhome rentals in Montana will usually have two sleeping areas and a separate bathroom area.
Campervans are Class B rentals. Vans that double as campers are very convenient for trips with smaller groups. Towable trailers can be pulled behind a vehicle and come in different sizes. The largest camper trailer is called a fifth wheel because it is positioned over the rear of the pulling vehicle. A pop-up camper rental in Montana is easy to travel with because it can be folded down when transported.
Staying at a great campground is almost as much fun as your excursions. Yellowstone Grizzly RV Park & Cabins is in West Yellowstone and only a short distance from the west entrance to Yellowstone National Park. This is a beautiful park with 220 RV sites, and the view is truly spectacular. While here, you can visit Yellowstone, ride horses, fish for trout, hike and much more. The campground has a store, a gift shop, showers, a laundry room and a conference room.
San-Suz-Ed RV Park and Bed & Breakfast is another great choice to park your RV. Close to Glacier Park, you will enjoy the nightly campfires with your fellow RVers. Trade tall tales with everyone while you taste the scrumptious cinnamon rolls and pies offered at the park.
While you are in Montana, you will naturally want to see both Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. Glacier National Park is home to numerous lakes and has over 1,000 types of plants and animals. While here, you can participate in one of the park-lead activities like star parties, guided hikes and boat tours.
Yellowstone is one of the most popular national parks in America and is home to the famous Old Faithful geyser that is a definite must-see. Explore the mountains, forests and lakes in the country's first national park, created "for the benefit and enjoyment of the people."
Sometimes, it may be necessary for you to store your rental RV for a period of time during your travels. There are many secure RV storage facilities in Montana, so you can safely leave your RV in one of these facilities. Some of RV storage facilities include:

Not only is Glacier National Park home to beautiful views, but it also offers the Going to the Sun Road, a 50-mile stretch of road that is both scary and exciting.

If you are a fan of college sports, the Montana State University Bobcats and the University of Montana Grizzlies both field many different athletic teams that play competitively all year.

Just like any vehicle that you rent, with camper rentals in Montana, you are going to need to have insurance that will cover the vehicle in the event that there is an accident.

When you rent an RV, it’s a good practice to bring the RV back with a full tank. At the same time, not all owners require it, so be sure to communicate with the RV owner before you rent so that you understand his or her refueling requirements.
One-way RV rentals in Montana are available, but it is not always an option with every RV owner. It's important to ask the renter if a one-way rental is an option prior to renting your vehicle.
