Renting an RV to Visit Yosemite
Yosemite National Park is one of the oldest, most visited, and perhaps the most famous national park in the United States, boasting a massive area of over 750,000 acres and world-renowned natural landmarks that includes the Half Dome, Mariposa Grove, Yosemite Falls, and Glacier Point, among others. It is a premier RV destination and has a well-developed RVing infrastructure that includes numerous rental depots, campgrounds, and various activities specifically targeted towards the RV community.
Exploring Yosemite National Park by RV makes the experience that much more intimate. Instead of booking lodging around Yosemite, you can stay in the comfort of your RV while camping amidst the Yosemite wilderness. There is something truly transformative about the RV experience in that it fully integrates the creature comforts of home with the raw beauty of nature. With an RV, it’s possible to sit back and relax in cushioned luxury with a good book and hot cocoa in hand, then step outside for some fresh air and a magnificent view of the mountains.
If you’re looking for an RV Rental in Yellowstone National Park, you have a variety of options, from locally-owned and operated dealerships, to outlets of national and global RV rental brands, to game-changing online platforms like RVshare.

Try RVshare Instead
If you’re planning on renting an RV, consider renting through the RVshare platform rather than a dealership. RVshare is an online, peer-to-peer rental platform that fundamentally changes the way that RV rentals work, to the benefit of both renters and owners.
The problem with RV dealerships is two-fold: they are not able to respond to competitive price demand, and they have limited capital to invest in a truly diverse range of vehicles.
In any given location, prospective renters are funneled into a few dealership options, each of which generally prices their RVs at whatever the market will accept (given seasonal peaks and other variation, of course). The local market lacks the ability to easily compare rentals, however, as few dealerships are willing to make their rates visible. Instead, prospective renters are usually forced to spend time and effort engaging the dealership to “get a quote” for the rental price.
Further, each dealership generally invests whatever capital they have in a fleet of RVs that will be popular enough to be consistently rented out. As such, if you have a particular interest in a niche RV (or even just in a specific RV configuration), then you may have trouble finding it at a traditional dealership.
RVshare fundamentally alters the way RV rentals work by empowering individual owners to rent out their RVs to prospective renters. On the RVshare platform, prospective renters can easily search, filter, and browse rental listings posted by owners. With so much information at their fingertips, prospective renters can compare listings (RV model, price, benefits, etc.) and determine what suits them best.
Because owners have access to real-time information about competitor listings, they are able to alter their pricing dynamically to respond to real consumer demand, driving rental rates down on the RVshare platform overall. Additionally, as most owners on the RVshare platform are renting out their personal RV, niche RV models and configurations are well-represented.
RVshare is easy to use and get started with. Give it a try!
