You’re going to need the right RV for your travels throughout Orange County. On RVshare, you’ll find various types of RVs to choose from. Your first consideration is whether to rent a non-motorized or a motorized RV.
Non-motorized RVs need to be towed. The towing vehicle must have the requisite towing capacity for the RV in question and, in some cases, the right type of hitch. Motorized RVs don't need to be towed.
Sometimes called trailers, non-motorized RVs can be pop-up campers, travel trailers, fifth wheels, or toy haulers. A foldable pop-up trailer is slightly smaller than a travel trailer or a fifth wheel trailer. Because of the way fifth wheels are hitched in the truck bed, these RVs can be easier to turn and maneuver than travel trailers. A toy hauler can be the best choice if you plan on bringing items like kayaks or mountain bikes.
Motorhomes are divided into classes and designated with a letter. Class A RV rentals in Orange County are the size of a bus. This type of RV has room for large groups, and some can sleep up to 10 with apartment-like amenities. Class B RVs look more like vans but also offer scaled-down amenities. Often built on a truck chassis, Class C recreational vehicles are easier to maneuver than Class A RVs and offer more space Class B campervans.
When considering where to camp in your Orange County RV rental, your options include campgrounds near the beach as well as attractions like Disneyland.

Keeping your RV at your home may not be possible due to space limitations or HOA rules. RV storage facilities can be found in cities such as Fullerton, Mission Viejo, Tustin, and Santa Ana.
