Small RV Rentals in San Francisco

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

Some of us want to travel in luxury, big motorhomes with lots of room and all the amenities. Then there are those of us who want to get off the beaten track and go where no large RV has gone before. For those people there are camper van rentals from San Francisco. Camper vans are really just small RVs that sleep a couple of people. The benefits of camper vans are that being small they are great on gas, saving you money over a large motorhome. Vans are also more maneuverable making them great for camping at the side of a lake or off the road by your favourite hiking spot. Camper vans put you right in the great outdoors. The kitchen is out the back of the van, so while you have the convenience of having a sink, a fridge and a stove you are still cooking outside. The only thing you are missing is a bathroom. If you like camping in a tent you will love a Campervan, all the conveniences of the larger RVs without having to sacrifice being one with nature. So grab a map, rent a camper van from San Francisco and let the adventure begin.

So what is the difference between a Class A, Class B and Class C RV?

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

If you have been searching for an RV rental you may be overwhelmed by all the choices out there. Do you want a motorhome or an RV? What is a camper van? Is it the same as a camper? What is the difference between a Class A, Class B and a Class C RV? Is there a difference between a motor coach, a caravan, a Winnebago and a recreational vehicle? Let’s see if we can clear some of this up.

So a motorhome, RV, motor coach, caravan and recreational vehicle are all the same thing. A Winnebago is a brand name of a company that sells motorhomes. When people use the term camper van they are referring to a Class B motorhome. Class B motorhomes come in two styles, basic and luxury. Both basic and luxury usually sleep 2 people but can have seatbelts for more. The basic camper van doesn’t have a toilet or shower while the luxury Class B has both. The basic camper has a kitchen accessible from the outside, while the luxury camper van has a kitchen you can access from the inside. A Class C RV can come in a large range of sizes, as small as 19′ and as large as 35′. A Class C motorhome is characterized by having a large bed over the driving area, allowing the capacity to sleep more people. A Class A RV are the large bus style motorhomes that have the flat front. While Class A RVs tend to be longer than Class C RVs, Class A RVs sleep less people are there is no large bed over the drivers area.

Hopefully this has helped to clear up some of the confusion. Motorhome or RV, Class A, B or C, Campervan or motor coach USA RV rentals has the perfect vehicle for your next RV rental vacation.

Road Trip: San Francisco to LA

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

Taking the trip from San Francisco to LA is iconic, filled with gorgeous views, towering mountains and fun times. The Pacific Coast Highway is a great 450 mile stretch and guides you down the California coast.

Here are our favorite stops along the way for either an hour or a day:

California Hwy 1
First Stop: Santa Cruz
As the wonderful views of the city of San Fran slips behind you and the ocean views stretch before you get ready for some fun in the beach town of Santa Cruz. The classic Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, a half-mile long beachfront amusement park is filled with 34 rides and numerous arcades. The town’s vibe is funky and don’t forget to stop by the original Santa Cruz skateboard shop for a piece of history.

Carmel and Big Sur
If you’re looking for a great snack or amazing home-style breakfast, Carmel has amazing cafés and is the perfect stop before heading into the nature enclave of Big Sur. This coastal gem is full of some of the best hikes, waterfalls and hidden beaches. If you can find the one with purple sand, you’re in for a real treat.

Cayucos to Santa Barbara
Cayucos and a charming little town to stop for a night full of quirky boutiques, homemade food and wood-fired pizza. If you’re looking to dip your toe into surfing, Santa Barbara is a great place to stop. The bustling city, cute shops, picture perfect beaches and world-class seafood is a great place to spend some time.

The Final Stretch to LA
Start the day off right with a walk along Butterfly Beach. To ease back into the bustling city life, take the long route and drive through Malibu and Santa Monica. The Santa Monica Pier is a great stop with the pier’s ferris wheel and the end of the iconic Route 66.

Class C RV Rentals

Tuesday, February 7th, 2017

Class C RV’s are the most common type of RV. Class C RV’s are characterized by the large bed directly over the drivers cabin. Class C’s are available in many sizes. I have seen them as small as 22’ and as larger are 35’. These motorhomes tend to sleep more people than a similar sized Class A as you get that extra bed over the driver. Most Class C RV’s allow you to walk from the driver’s area into the cabin of the RV, but I have seen exceptions to this, so it is always good to ask before you rent the RV if this is important to you. This RV will tend to be a little easier to drive compared to a Class A motorhome because the wheelbase is much more similar to regular passenger vehicles. In the end this is the most popular type of RV simply because of the extra sleeping space that it provides. Class C RV’s can be rented from almost any major city across the US including, Phoenix (PHX), Los Angeles (LAX), Chicago (ORD) San Francisco (SFO), Denver (DEN),Boston (BOS) Miami (MIA), Orlando (MCO), Ft Lauderdale (FLL) Las Vegas (LAS), RENO (RNO), New York City (NYC), Dallas (DFW), Salt Lake City (SLC), and Seattle (SEA).

Class A RV Rentals

Monday, February 6th, 2017

Class A RV’s are characterized by the large flat front, similar to a bus. While Class A RV’s tend to be the longest of the RV’s available they also tend to sleep fewer people as there is no bed over the driver’s area of the RV. Class A RV’s also tend to be the most luxurious RV’s available, having more high end features. These RV’s are usually over 28’ long and some can be as long as 45’. Driving a Class A RV will take a little practice as they drive a little differently than most vehicles. You will need to take corners wider than with most vehicles as a Class A handles more like a bus. Any Class A RV that you find available for rent on this site will only require a standard driver’s license. Class A’s can be rented from Phoenix (PHX), Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), Denver (DEN), Miami (MIA), Orlando (MCO), Las Vegas (LAS), RENO (RNO), New York City (NYC), Dallas (DFW), Salt Lake City (SLC), and Seattle (SEA).

The motorhome you choose is really a matter of preference, and how many people you need to accommodate in your rental.
