Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to stay at a campground or RV park?

A stay at an RV park will usually cost around $25–80 (USD) per night.

The cost of campgrounds has risen in recent years due to the popularity of RV vacations in the USA.

Is free camping allowed in the US?

While free camping is only allowed in designated areas throughout the USA, there are plenty of locations in which you can do this.

Both the US Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management care for millions of acres of land where free camping is allowed.

Many retailers and casinos may also allow you to camp for a night in their parking lot with permission from the owner.

There are also truck stops and rest stops where you can pull up for a night, many of which have facilities included.

Does my motorhome come with unlimited mileage?

The majority of campervan rental suppliers in the US do not offer unlimited miles as a standard rental inclusion.

In most cases, miles (kilometres) are capped at a daily rate, and additional fees will be incurred if you exceed the limit. Additional miles can usually also be prepurchased in packages ranging from 100 miles up to unlimited. However, any remaining miles will not be refunded when the vehicle is returned.

What are the differences between Class A, B, and C motorhomes?

A wide variety of motorhomes are available in the USA, from smaller station wagons up to large motorhomes. Some of the common types include:

  • Class A: (21-45 ft) The biggest and most expensive vehicles, they can be hard to manoeuvre if you are new to driving motorhomes but are often equipped with additional luxuries.

Class A motorhomes are often built on a commercial truck or bus chassis and run on either diesel or gas, depending on the type of engine.

Usually, Class A vehicles are fully loaded with all amenities and have a large living space.

  • Class B: (17-19 ft) Small and affordable, these vehicles are easier to drive and manoeuvre. Class B vehicles are often known as conversion vans and are built on a smaller chassis compared to Class A vehicles.

Some Class B vehicles include a toilet or freshwater tank, but not all do. Class B vehicles usually have basic cooking equipment, folding beds and limited storage space.

Class B vehicles are a good option for short-term getaways.

  • Class C: (30-33 ft) These vehicles are medium-sized, with moderate storage space and a few extra luxuries.

Class C vehicles are a smaller version of the Class A motorhome. They are built on a truck or van cutaway chassis and usually have a gas-powered engine.

Class C motorhomes generally have sleeping quarters above the cab and more sleeping space in the back. Some Class Cs also have a slide-out option that increases the living space when the motorhome is parked.

Class C vehicles come equipped with a good number of facilities, including a self-contained toilet, refrigerator, heating or AC, and cooking facilities.

Class C vehicles are very versatile and are great for both short- and long-term getaways.

What licence do you need to drive a campervan in the USA?

All drivers must have a current and full driver’s licence to hire a vehicle. Foreign licences are generally acceptable if they are in English or accompanied by an accredited English translation. Otherwise, an International Driving Permit (IDP) is required.

In addition to your driver’s licence, you will often be required to show your passport at the time of pickup.

Some companies, e.g. Road Bear, Best Time and Britz, require an IDP regardless of the language of your licence.

Can I travel from the US to Canada in my rental campervan?

This depends on the company. Several rental suppliers will allow you to travel to Canada in your rental vehicle, including Apollo, El Monte, Jucy, Campervan North America, Travellers Autobarn, Escape Rentals and Cruise America.

Please contact support for information on other suppliers. You must comply with visa and customs requirements at all times.

Note: policies vary from supplier to supplier. Always check the T&Cs for your rental.
