Canada’s RV rental options
Canada’s rental options cover anything from fold-out camping trailers to monster RV trucks. Choose the one which is right for you, and be aware of things like the size of beds- anything smaller than 6 feet long is not likely to be comfortable for a full-grown adult. Price will of course play a factor, as bigger is generally more expensive, although not always. The age of the vehicle and amenities available play a part in the rental price, and also determine which RV is the best for your needs.
2 berth vehicles are more likely to be called campervans, and are common in the southern hemisphere and amongst the more adventurous road trippers. Essentially just converted vans, these have very limited facilities, often only a bed and a simple gas stove. They are great for those on a budget, and intrepid travellers who want to get to meet new friends by using the shared facilities at campgrounds.
A 3-berth motorhome is usually a campervan-style vehicle, so is lightweight and easy to handle. They are great for a family of 2 adults and one child, with one double bed and one single bed. Cooking, bathroom and other facilities range from vehicle to vehicle- some will have shower and toilet facilities, some won’t- so check this before hiring.
These larger motorhomes are generally built on a truck chassis. They have much roomier living quarters than the van-based campervans, and often are configured with a double bed above the cab and a dining area which converts into another. Equipped with kitchen and bathroom facilities, these are great for families of up to 4, especially with small children.
