If you're looking for a great starting point for a central-Texas road trip, consider getting an RV rental in San Angelo. Cruising around in a "home on wheels" adds a level of comfort and convenience that you just don't get jumping from hotel to hotel. It's also much more affordable.
Before you can set out on the open road with your San Angelo RV rental, however, you'll first have to do some homework. Start by studying up on the different classes of RV.
The largest and most luxurious of your motorhome options are the Class A RVs. Outfitted with all the latest electronics and enough room to make the finest suite at a hotel jealous, these motorhomes can fit up to 10 people. The only thing to consider is that you might want to have some experience driving large vehicles if you are going to rent a Class A.
If you want something smaller and easier to drive, considering getting a Class B campervan. These have enough room for about four adults on average. The middle ground is the Class C motorhome, which can fit generally fit up to six passengers.
You've also got a few other options for camper rentals in San Angelo if you can pull a trailer. Most trucks and SUVs are strong enough to handle towables.
One of the most popular trailer options the pop-up. A pop-up camper rental in San Angelo entails a small room (around the size of a Class B RV) with few amenities. When not in use, these campers fold down thanks to their canvas walls.
You could also try a travel trailer. These are the closest to traditional motorhome rentals in San Angelo, essentially being an RV minus the cab for driving. Amenities and floor plans vary from model to model.
A camper rental in San Angelo just wouldn't be complete without a little camping. If you're looking for one of the best RV campgrounds in San Angelo, why not try San Angelo KOA Holiday? This campground has huge spaces for parking as well as concrete patios that make it really feel like home. For a smaller, quieter option, consider getting a spot at Concho Pearl RV Estates.
One of the quintessential RVing activities is to visit a US National Park. If this is something you'd like to do over your vacation, you're in luck. Guadalupe Mountains National Park is located about 300 miles from San Angelo.
Enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the glorious mountains, especially the Guadalupe Peak. You'll be able to get away from it all as you hike, climb mountains and explore the region. You could also take advantage of the activities or tours put on by park rangers.
If you're planning to be away from your RV for extended periods of time, you'll need access to a storage facility. Thankfully, there are multiple great options in the San Angelo area. Reputable businesses like Silver Dollar Self-Storage and D & N RV Storage have all kinds of features, from 24-hour access to electronic gate locks. These facilities also have around-the-clock surveillance.
A dumpstation is a place where you can get rid of your black and gray water. This is necessary to keep your RV clean and sanitary.
Thankfully, the San Angelo area has plenty of dumpstations. Many are operated in conjunction with different RV campgrounds or state parks. For example, the aforementioned KOA has a dumpstation. San Angelo State Park is also an option. Both of these sites charge a small fee for dumping unless you're a guest, so keep that in mind.
San Angelo has plenty to offer to tourists who are looking for a good time. For an educational experience, visit the animals at the San Angelo Nature Center. Check out the Museum of Fine Arts to see what pieces are on display. If nature is more your speed, then you'll love the International Waterlily Collection.
While San Angelo may not have a lot in terms of sports viewing experiences, playing sports is a different story entirely. Stop by the Texas Bank Sports Complex with its many facilities to join in on softball, flag football, baseball, kickball or volleyball. Softball teams play games year-round during all four seasons, so you can catch those whenever you decide to come to visit. Outside of sports, though, you might enjoy a show down at the Angelo Civic Theatre.
It's fairly easy to get around by RV in San Angelo. For a more expedited way of coming and going, you've got route 87 running through the eastern half of the city. Route 277 also goes through San Angelo.
