If you enjoy the RV lifestyle, RVing abroad is a must.

When renting an RV for your European vacation, consider the type of vehicle you are paying for and where you plan to travel and camp. Most companies offer campervans and motorhomes for rent in various sizes.

To locate campgrounds that fit your needs, obtain a comprehensive guidebook or search websites such as eurocampings.co.uk. These resources will give you an idea of the location, cost, and amenities of campgrounds across Europe.

Motorhome rental involves two key decisions: Who to rent from and what type of vehicle. Before you book a rental, do your homework. This is a big decision and requires time and effort to do your research.

When comparing rental quotes, be sure you compare apples to apples. There are variations of rental policies, rental company reputations, rental motorhome age, quality, and specifications. Variations exist between motorhome rental companies in terms of inclusions and optional extras and specials.

And now, what type of motorhome to rent? Consider your budget, length of time you will travel, and amount of space you require to sleep comfortably, sit at the table, prepare meals, get dressed, and store your stuff. Do you need for a toilet and shower on board?
