Whether you’re looking to upgrade your existing RV or you’re heading out on your first RV adventure, there’s never been a better time because RVs have greatly improved, and you have so many options now. RVshare makes RV rental in Orlando easy and helps you find the perfect one for your needs.
If you’ve heard about the different classes of RV and don’t really know what that means in terms of what conveniences you get, you can visit this RV classes page for a detailed description of the different amenities available for each kind. In the meantime, here’s a quick rundown of the differences so can you know where to start your search.
Class A: Class A motorhome rentals in Orlando are the largest and are generally more expensive to buy or rent. It may be a good choice for you if you’re a dedicated RV traveler, as these options offer the most luxurious amenities.
Class B: These are also known as campervans, and they are similar to but smaller than a Class A motorhome. They are easier to drive and set up and are convenient for day trips or for running errands.
Class C: These are bigger than Class B RVs but still smaller and more maneuverable than Class A. They are often built on top of a truck and are large enough for an entire family.
Towable RVs: An advantage of a towable RV is that a variety of towing vehicles can be used with them. They are generally large, so you could take your family and even your pet.
Fifth wheelers: These are very similar to towable RVs, but the gooseneck connector offers a better connection and more storage space.
Folding and tent trailers: These are the smallest and most light-weight type of Orlando RV rental, and they are easy to maneuver.

If you're traveling down south of Orlando, Big Cypress National Reserve Florida is a great place to visit.

It has a mixture of temperate and tropical plants, and it is home to wildlife, including the Florida panther. You can partake in many different types of activities. The park is designated an International Dark Sky Place by the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA), so you can experience the night without any artificial light pollution.
You can also go on a swamp tour to dive deep into the park, explore the park by kayak or canoe, ride your off-road vehicle, or go on a scenic drive. This national park also has eight campgrounds allowing you to find your perfect camping spot for your motorhome rental in Orlando.
