Campervan Rental Directory by State

The Basics of Renting a Campervan

Are you thinking of taking a road trip in a campervan, but concerned that a class C vehicle or motor home might be too unwieldy? Our directory offers recommended businesses who rent out primarily campervans–although we’ve included some RV rental companies as well.

So why a campervan? A small campervan rental could be the perfect solution; especially if you’re looking for a vehicle you can sleep in and more easily maneuver along the way. With so many campervan rental options, where to begin? As owners of a campervan rental company owner, we thought we’d share some tips to help ensure you’re able to find a vehicle that best fits your needs. While our own business focused on renting VW camper vans—VW buses and Westfalias—we’re familiar enough with the essentials of renting a campervan: vehicle condition, insurance, functionality, price, comfort level and so on. We’ve organized our list of campervan rentals by state so you can more easily find the right option based on your destination by state. Keep in mind that most campervan rental agencies limit how far you can drive their vehicles and charge a base mileage fee along with a supplemental fee (or penalty) beyond the base threshold. The older the vehicle, the more likely the owner will limit the total driving distance and impose higher supplemental mileage fees. Before jumping to the list of campervan rental options by state (and large city), here are the main criteria or considerations you should keep at the forefront of your decision-making process.

Before we get into rental details, it’s important to note that camper vans are not RVs. Recreational vehicles (RVs) have larger motors and are typically equipped with living space and various amenities that you would find in a home, e.g. kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping area. Some RVs require a special license to drive and are not easily maneuvered if your end goal is camping or traveling to a location with narrow roads.

Campervans are often just vans that include a sleeping area, and some cases, additional amenities such as a sink, refrigerator or storage. Campervans don’t require a special driver’s license and they’re much smaller than RVs. Many of the campervan rentals on our list have some form of a small kitchen and a bed and have been customized by their owner using a combination of aftermarket and homemade materials.

As you peruse our list, keep in mind that not all campervans and campervan rental companies are equal. There is little or no standardization in the industry, so the quality of your experience (and vehicle) depends almost entirely on the commitment of the rental agency to maintain their fleet effectively. Some campervan rental companies are large companies with multiple rental locations, others are simply an individual who rents out his/her campervan for extra money. The older or more valuable the vehicle, the more important it is that you do your homework when evaluating the rental agency. In most cases, you should consider renting older VW buses or Westfalia from a company that rents only those vehicles and has one or more professional mechanics involved in the ongoing maintenance of the vehicle. If you have kids or expect to arrive at the airport on time with no chance of vehicle issues, be aware that your odds of a breakdown go up significantly when you rent older, antique vehicles. You’ll be trading reliability, comfort and functionality for an experience that is more about aesthetics and being a part of a unique subculture (think #vanlife).

How Much Does it Cost to Rent a Campervan?

The rates vary depending on where and what you’re renting. In most cases, a rate between $200 and $300 per night/day is not unusual, but we share prices below and include this information in our preferred campervan information table (at end of document). It may seem like it costs a lot more compared to a newer sedan or minivan, but keep in mind the high overhead costs associated with purchasing and managing campervans.

What are the Main Reasons I Should Rent a Campervan?

  • They will allow you to meet a bunch of people who otherwise wouldn’t talk with you as you can often park these at campsites that would be inaccessible to RVs.
  • Some of the more interesting campervans like VW Westfalias and Mercedes Sprinters can add an aesthetic to your vacation that is hard to forget. They are memory makers and even when you’re dealing with troubleshooting issues, you’re somehow still creating memories.
  • They are pretty comfortable to sleep in; especially if you’re using the pop-top or dedicated sleeping area with a real mattress
  • They are super easy to maneuver, e.g. excellent turning radius and easy to place in your camping or parking spot.

What are the Disadvantages of Renting a Campervan?

As we mentioned earlier, renting a campervan is not for everyone and they’re definitely not the most practical option you’ll find.

  • Gas mileage is poor compared to a smaller vehicle; especially if you’re renting an older antique vehicle. There’s no way around this. In many cases, you’ll also be required to use the highest octane gasoline, which costs more.
  • You won’t be traveling very fast when using a campervan, so factor in a longer period to reach your destination.
  • Older campervans may not include front airbags and cannot be customized to include them.
  • Many campervans do not come with a toilet or shower. Additionally, if you are renting a campervan with a stove or refrigerator, original appliances did not work well in the first place. In most cases, you won’t want to be cooking bacon or anything else inside a small, confined space—that you don’t own. With newer campervans, there is a wide range of what type of appliances you will have available for your use.
  • The handling on most older VW campervans—bus or Westfalia—is not great. The older buses will not have power steering and even if your Westfalia does have power steering, the aerodynamics of the vehicle can create wind shear in windy areas or when passing bridges or other areas that channel wind.
  • Reliability. These vehicles are only as good as the mechanics who work on them.

Better Options?

It depends on your tolerance for budget, risk, memory-making quotient and your hoped-for vacation aesthetic. If you’re committed to renting a VW bus or Westfalia, make sure the VW campervan rental company has a solid track record. And, keep in mind that you will still be driving an antique vehicle that is inherently less safe than when driving a newer vehicle. I compare driving one of these older vehicles to driving a motorcycle: You’re risk increases, but you’re connected to the road in a more intimate way.
