There’s nothing like the #vanlife. For those of you new to the #vanlife movement, it’s basically the sweet combination of camping, road-tripping, and embracing the carefree lifestyle of having a home on wheels.

Campervans are an awesome way to travel, especially in a country as huge as the USA. With wide open spaces, National Parks, and miles of coastline, traveling in a campervan gives you a lot of freedom to be spontaneous and have a comfy home base while getting a healthy dose of nature on the daily.

Whether you’re interested in selling all your possessions to get a van of your own or just want to take a camping road trip, renting a campervan is a great way to try van life on for size. Buying a campervan can have quite a high price tag (especially the coolest of campers), so campervan rentals are a fantastic way to get campervan access with a minimal investment.

Outdoorsy is an online rental platform that connects campervan renters with campervan owners. It’s kind of like Airbnb for RV and campervan rentals. Outdoorsy has listings for all types of adventure-happy camp-mobiles—from modern tricked out custom campervans and vintage VW buses to all sizes of RVs and motorhomes.

The best part of Outdoorsy is that all of the campervans are unique and you can find really special custom vans with all the bells and whistles (and Instagram opportunities if that’s your cup of tea).

Like Airbnb, you communicate directly with the campervan owner, but Outdoorsy gives you all kinds of perks like $1M insurance (as long as you pass the DMV check), 24/7 RV rental roadside assistance, and a customer support team.

Tips to help you find the perfect campervan rental:

  • Not all campervans are created equal. Campervans come in many different sizes and all rentals have different amenities included. Make sure you read the small print to understand everything that is included and not included.

 

  • Make sure you check how many miles are included for your rental. Most campervan rentals include 100 – 150 miles per day, which covers most people’s needs. But if you’re planning on covering a lot of ground, make sure you do the math so you know if you will have to pay extra for extra miles driven.

 

  • Sometimes the amount of people a campervan can sleep is different than the number of people the campervan can legally drive. For example, a campervan with a pop top might sleep four adults, but only has seating with seatbelts for two people. If you’re traveling with three or more people, double check how many people the campervan rental can seat.

 

  • Campervan rental rates can vary greatly depending on the season. In the USA, rental prices are typically the most expensive in the summer (roughly May – August) and on holiday weekends, and the lowest prices will be in the winter (roughly November – March).

 

  • If you rent from an independent owner, the vast majority of owners don’t offer one-way trips, meaning, you can’t drop it off in another city. This is fine if you’re planning on a roundtrip, but if you want to start your trip in one place and drop it off in another, a larger commercial campervan rental company might be a better fit for you.
