One Way RV Rentals from San Francisco

Wednesday, October 10th, 2018

One way RV rentals are a great way to see the country as you are able to cover a lot more area because you do not need to backtrack to where you have already been. A one way RV rental starting from San Francisco is always a great option. When you are planning your trip you will want to take into account that there most likely will be a one way RV rental fee. One way RV rental fees are sometimes waived if you are travelling in the off or shoulder seasons.

San Francisco to Los Angeles is a very popular one way RV rental road trip. Following the 101 highway all the way along the Pacific coast will give you lots of breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. Plan stops in Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea and Big Sur.

Another very popular one way RV rental road trip is San Francisco to New York City. If this is a trip that you are interested in please plan accordingly. The USA is a huge country you could cross it in 7 days but you would be spending your whole vacation driving. I would suggest you plan on renting your RV for at least 14 days for this one way RV rental.

If you are looking at a shorter one way RV rental from San Francisco consider driving to Las Vegas. This is a one way RV rental that you could do in 3 or 4 days and still be able to stop lots and enjoy the country.

You could rent a one way RV rental from San Francisco and go almost anywhere, but other popular destinations are Seattle, Denver, Orlando, Phoenix, Vancouver (Point Roberts), or Miami. So grab a map and start planning your next one way RV rental from San Francisco.

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.

Class B RV Rentals

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

Class B RV rentals are compact vehicles set up to make your camping experience more comfortable. Class B RV’s or vans usually sleep 2 or 3 people. Many of these vans are set up with toilets and showers and small kitchens. The amenities in the Class B vans vary depending on where you rent them from so check the vehicle details to see which van is right for your trip. Class B vans can be rented from Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Denver, Miami, New York, Salt Lake City and Seattle. Check the quote program for vehicle availability and pricing.

San Francisco is the friendliest and artsiest city in the US. Here are five things to make sure you do when in ‘Shaky Town’.

Golden Gate Bridge

golden-gate-bridge

This famous bridge is possibly the most well-known thing about San Francisco, and it merits a visit for sure. Put on sunscreen for your walk across the famous bridge or else you will end up with an asymmetrical burn, still worth it though!

Fisherman’s Wharf / Pier 39

fishermans-wharf

Here is a little bit of everything San Francisco has to offer. Shopping, great sweet and savoury food, street performers, museums, art galleries, and a chance to see the sea lions that hang out on the rocky shore.

Alcatraz Island

alcatraz-island

The famous former prison can be reached by ferry. Once you arrive you will receive a head set and a tap to listen to the tour at your leisure. The story about the prison escape is the most interesting. Outside you can walk around the island and enjoy the grounds. A truly unique and eerie National Historic Landmark.

Lands’ End

lands-end-aerial

This little slice of heaven feels completely isolated from the city and you have a less touristy, more authentic experience. There are hiking trails winding around a rugged coastline with hidden gems such as Sutro bath and caves. Located on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge, it provides awesome views of the city and the bridge, especially from the Cliff House Bar. It gets chilly by the water so dress in layers!

Golden Gate Park

golden-gate-park

The Golden Gate Park has plenty of attractions to offer but if you are short on time I would recommend the trio of the Japanese Tea Garden, California Academy of Sciences, and the De Young (fine arts) museum, all located in the Music Concourse Area. These are connected by an open-air plaza that is often filled with street performers and artists.
