What type of RV should I rent to travel in Canada?

RV Types in CA banner

The type of RV you should rent depends on how many people you are travelling with and where you intend to visit. Some people may prefer a smaller vehicle that is more maneuverable. Alternatively, if you are travelling with a group you will need a larger vehicle to accommodate everyone.


Smaller vehicles (sometimes called campers) generally sleep 2 adults. These vehicles tend to be easier to drive and park, but may lack certain amenities. Some may not feature bathroom and kitchen facilities, so you will need to find RV parks that offer these facilities. If you want to be self-contained on your Canadian holiday, you may need to look at larger vehicles.

  • Easier to drive
  • More fuel and cost-efficient
  • There are plenty of RV parks in Canada offering additional amenities


Motorhomes are larger vehicles, and tend to accommodate more people. These vehicles offer more storage, and also feature amenities such as a shower, toilet, kitchen, washer, dryer and more. Motorhomes are generally more expensive than their smaller counterparts, and can be more difficult to drive, particularly if you're not used to navigating the roads with a larger vehicle.

  • Are more expensive on fuel
  • Good for families (offer plenty of space)
  • Travel with all the amenities you need
If you are planning on renting a smaller vehicle, remember that it may not feature bathroom and kitchen facilities. You will need to stay in RV parks that provide these facilities.
