With a reliable motorhome, you can enjoy the freedom of backcountry travel without having to worry about paying for accommodation.

Guide on Renting an RV

Avoid renting an RV during the peak season which is between the months of July and August. More vacationers are on the road to popular tourist places such as Montreal, Quebec or Vancouver at this time of the year, and prices are usually high. Take note that you can have access to the best campsites and cheaper RV rentals during the off season (from November to January).

When it comes to choosing an RV to rent in Canada, there are two important determining factors for you to consider. The number of people you will be travelling with and where will you be going.

Once you know where you’re going and who’s coming with you, that’s when you can decide the type of RV to rent. Make sure that you'll have sufficient space for everyone to sleep in and lounge around. Additionally, it should have the right kitchen appliances for you to make meals at the RV park or campground. Click here to gather more ideas.
