Selecting the right class of RV for your Redding RV rental trip is easy when you consider the size of your group and the general plan for the vacation. If your group will spend most of the time outdoors, then you may want to consider a Class B sleeper van. It features plenty of sleeping and storage room with a shorter length than a Class A. A Class A motorhome rental in Redding is approximately the size of a bus with a length of up to 45 feet, room to sleep 10, and the amenities of a high-end home. Make sure to take into account the Class A's length and gas mileage of six to eight miles per gallon before renting one of these vehicles. A Class C, which is built on a truck-sized chassis, provides ample views of the sights out the wide windows, and it also offers an over-the-cabin bunk for extra storage. The Class C provides better mileage and more maneuverability than a Class A and has more modest amenities.
A camper rental in Redding is a great choice if you desire to drive your own vehicle. If the pop-up camper rental in Redding is light enough, then your sedan may be able to tow it. For RV rentals in Redding that require a larger vehicle, such as travel trailers and toy haulers, an SUV or half-ton truck will be sufficient. For the heavier fifth wheels, a full-ton truck is optimal, and it needs a special in-bed hitch.
You have the choice of several campgrounds in Redding. In the heart of downtown Redding is the convenient Redding RV Park, which is within walking distance of WaterWorks Park that is filled with watery fun for kids of all ages. Full hookups and both back-in and pull-through pads offer relaxation under shade trees. Close to Interstate 5 is Green Acres RV Park, a cozy home away from home with 33 back-in sites, full hookups and a pool. It is pet-friendly and provides Wi-Fi and laundry facilities.
Visit Redwood National Park, which is nestled in the midst of towering redwoods, to refresh your soul in Mother Nature. This national park supplies views of the ocean, a prairie, rivers and rare animals such as Steller sea lions. Expect rain from October through April, so prepare accordingly to feel comfortable in the even temperature range of 40 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit all year. In summer, humidity means that moisture-wicking material and sure-grip soles guarantee safe footing on slippery forest floors. Keep an eye out for elk, whales and the occasional spotted owl as you canoe, kayak, tidepool or hike shaded trails.
AAA Mini RV Storage, Redding Boat & RV Storage, Aspin RV & Mini Storage and Advantage RV & Mini Storage are clean, well-lit facilities for storing your RV while you use your smaller tow-along for shorter excursions.
Redding values keeping your RV at its best by offering dumpstations at Win River Mini Mart, Whiskeytown National Recreation Area, Brandy Creek Campground, Sacramento River RV Park, Premier RV Resorts, Oak Bottom Campground, and North Redding Valero.
